    When are character meet and greet experiences anticipated to begin again?

    A true Disney fan will always want to make sure they have that treasured moment of meeting Mickey, Minnie, or their favorite character! Welcome to planDisney, Tiffany! I'm glad you're here!

    At the present time, there have been no announcements regarding a possible return of the traditional character meet-and-greet opportunities in the Disney Parks. I encourage you to keep checking both the Walt Disney World Resort website and the Disney Parks Blog for updates regarding a possible return.

    While the traditional meet-and-greets are still suspended, there are plenty of ways to capture moments with your favorite characters! Guests staying a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection should keep their eyes open because you never know when a favorite Disney pal is going to show-up at your resort! During our most recent visit, we had a great surprise when both Goofy and Pluto arrived to wave to Guests and pose for some physically distanced photographs (which turned out great)!

    Also, keep in mind that there are several character dining experiences currently operating in some of the resorts and theme parks! Breakfast with Mickey and his closest friends can be found at both Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort and at Topolino's Terrace located at Disney's Riviera Resort! Minnie also hosts her Seasonal Dine for lunch and dinner at Hollywood and Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios! Vampirina and friends from Disney Junior host breakfast at this same restaurant in the morning! And, at EPCOT, Chip 'n' Dale are excited to welcome Guests for lunch and dinner at Garden Grill Restaurant! Keep in mind that characters are subject to change at character dining experiences.

    Don't forget, some of your favorite pals can still be seen in the Disney Parks during cavalcades, motorcades, flotillas, and other surprise appearances!
