    Are character autographs back at Disney World for April 2022?

    Hi there, Kerry! Welcome back to planDisney!

    It looks like you'll be arriving for another magical vacation in just a few days! Lucky you! I'd trade places with you if I could, as visiting Mickey and his pals sounds a lot more exciting than this cold weather we're enduring up in New Jersey! You are arriving during a very special time in Walt Disney World Resort history... The 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World! There will be some extra magic touches throughout the parks and resorts to celebrate this momentous occasion, including the breathtaking new Nighttime Spectacular in Magic Kingdom Park, Disney Enchantment. I've had the pleasure of seeing this beautiful show in the sky twice and it is a can't miss display!

    Currently, interactions between Guests and characters are still modified to ensure the safest experience for Guests and Cast Members alike. Unfortunately, that does mean that autographs, hugs and high-fives are not yet permitted. However, you can still meet your favorite characters from a safe distance, waving and snapping a photo to cherish forever. Though this meet and greet style is a little different than what we are used to, it does help the line move a little faster! So go ahead and hop over to visit Princess Tiana and friends at Princess Fairytale Hall once you arrive!

    If you have any character dining experiences booked during your stay, quite a few of these restaurants are giving out pre-signed postcards for Guests to take home after their meal. My daughter was really hoping for autographs, but after collecting these little keepsakes from Chef Mickey'sTopolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera and Tusker House Restaurant, she was more than satisfied!

    I hope this helps answer your question today, Kerry!

    Until next time,
