    Hello - in April a post was noted that characters are not signing autograph books for visitors. Is that still the situation now in October 2021?

    Welcome! Andrea, it's my pleasure to roll out the red carpet for you as it’s your first visit to planDisney! We're all EARS when it comes to helping you plan a vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    The Disney Parks Blog just posted that character experiences will be returning sometime in November 2021!  What it will look like is that Guests will be able to spend individualized time with some of their favorite characters and have the opportunity to take photos. However, don’t pull the autograph books out just yet because autographs and up close interactions like hugging will not be happening just yet. But honestly, I will take any face time I can get with the characters after all this time, and it will be such a welcome addition to our Walt Disney World experience. 

    Here’s the forecasted characters to be featured first. The Disney Princesses will be holding court in Princess Fairytale Hall, and you can find Mickey Mouse over at Town Square Theater in Magic Kingdom. Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Animation Courtyard will host the Disney Junior characters and Minnie Mouse can be found in Red Carpet Dreams. 

    While we don’t have an exact date just yet for these new character sightings, rest assured that they will be done in such a way to reward fans and give quality time with the characters that we are all craving!

    Andrea, promise me you will stop back by planDisney if we can help you with more planning questions. Enjoy every moment of your Walt Disney World vacation!
