    Is character meetings (including princesses) with hugs and autographs available in January 2023?

    Hey there KyuHo and welcome to planDisney!

    Character meet and greets are such a magical part of visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. Even at my big age I still felt so excited watching Donald Duck walking into Disney's Beach Club Resort or dancing with Max Goof on Main Street, U.S.A. during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. 

    Earlier this year we were all so happy when hugs and autographs with our favorite Disney pals became a part of everyday life at The Most Magical Place on Earth once more. I even know an easy way to find our most magical friends when you visit this January. Open your My Disney Experience app and tap the location icon at the bottom of the screen. Change the setting at the top of the screen from Wait Times to Characters. You'll be able to see where each character is waiting to see their favorite friend: You! 

    KyuHo, thank you so much for letting me help you today. I hope I've been able to make your vacation and your day a little more magical. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back for another chat!

    Happy planning!
