    Greetings, Shalanda!

    Welcome back to planDisney, friend! You picked such a great time to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth. All four theme parks are currently in the middle of The World's Most Magical Celebration. This 50th Anniversary spectacular offers so many unique and delightful ways to experience magic throughout Walt Disney World, including meeting Mickey Mouse in his new celebratory EARidescent suit.  

    Character dining is the perfect way to some of your favorite pals. I am happy to report that there are currently several locations where you can make lifelong memories over a meal. Modified character dining is currently available at:

    • Chef Mickey's
    • Garden Grill Restaurant 
    • Hollywood & Vine
    • Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White
    • Topolino's Terrace- Flavors of the Riviera 
    • Tusker House Restaurant
    I absolutely recommend planning at least one meal with Mickey and the gang during your visit! The silly antics of Goofy or excited waves from Minnie are sure to make everyone in your travel party smile. You can make reservations for these locations 60 days before your arrival. I do want to mention that character experiences are subject to change, so be sure to check the Walt Disney World website for restaurant details as your trip gets closer. I also recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest theme park news. You will find all the exciting announcements about attraction openings, new experiences, and details about everything returning to The Most Magical Place on earth during the phased reopening

    And speaking of characters, I wanted to share some great news. Traditional Character Greetings are returning to the magical later this month. This means that you and your Ohana can give hi-fives, hugs, and get your favorite pal's autograph during your picking adventure.  

    I hope that your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
