    Now that character meet and greets have returned, will the characters be back at the Visa cardholder spots in Epcot and Hollywood Studios?

    Hiya, Brittany!

    Welcome back to planDisney, friend! I am delighted that you continue to stop by with your planning questions. The countdown to your arrival at The Most Magical Place on Earth has started, and I am sure your entire travel party is getting excited. The recent return of traditional Character Greetings is one more reason that this is a great year to head back to the magic! A hug from your favorite pal or an autograph to take home is the perfect addition to any Disney vacation. 

    While there are many character interactions located throughout Walt Disney World Resort, the Disney Visa Cardmember Photo Opportunity is currently offering a modified experience with digitally enhanced characters. These fun Magic Shots can still be found in EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. At EPCOT you will find this photo spot in next to Journey Into Imagination With Figment. The Hollywood Studios location is just outside of Star Wars Launch Bay in the Animation Courtyard. There is still some time before your arrival, so be sure to check the Cardmember Reward site as you get closer to your vacation for any recent updates! I also want to mention that your Disney Visa still offers great perks including exclusive discounts on dining, merchandise, tours, and more. 

    If character time is a goal of your upcoming stay, be sure to download The My Disney Experience app before you arrive. This wonderful planning tool is your go-to source to see which friendly faces will be available to meet in the parks each day. While in the mobile app, select the theme park that you will be visiting. At the top of the screen, there will be a drop-down menu with the option to select Characters. This filter will show you all of the available experiences in the park that day and their location. This is a great time saver when you are looking for your favorite princess or Fab Five friend. 

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