    Hello, we arrive in WDW in a few weeks! While visiting Animal Kingdom, my niece wants to have a henna tattoo by one of the talented artists in Mombasa Marketplace. Will they still be doing that?

    Hi Faith,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I know you must be getting excited about your Walt Disney World vacation, which is just around the corner. We're all happy for the opportunity to return to the magic.

    As I'm sure you know, as part of the phased reopening of the resorts and theme parks, Walt Disney World has implemented a variety of new procedures to promote health and safety. Those include enhanced cleaning, physical distancing and reduced contact.

    While Mombasa Marketplace at Animal Kingdom is open, I have not been able to find specific information about whether the henna tattoo artists will be available. However, my best guess is that this service will remain closed during the phased reopening to promote physical distancing. Other experiences that involve close personal contact -- including the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutiques, the Harmony Barber Shop and the Senses Spas -- have not yet announced plans for reopening.

    Throughout your visit, Faith, you can find the most up-to-date information on available attractions and experiences on the Walt Disney World website and in the My Disney Experience mobile app. And please, continue to check with us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have more questions or want recommendations for ways to make your visit even more magical.
