    Are characters signing autograph books during the Covid restrictions? Also, are you allowed to get a photo with characters right now?

    Hi, Judy! Thanks for stopping in to ask a question about your upcoming spring trip. 

    In an effort to encourage physical distancing, character greetings, including the signing of autograph books and gathering for posed photos, are temporarily paused throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. As an alternative, guests are encouraged to use their personal phones to take selfies with characters in the background. I imagine that once we are able to put this pandemic behind us, those types of masked selfies will serve as fun and iconic reminders of this unique time in our global history! If you're curious about some of the other pandemic-related changes in Disney Parks, this informative update should come in handy.

    I will tell you that your visit is scheduled to occur during one of my favorite times of the year. The Taste of Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival offers so many opportunities to enjoy beautiful blooms and fresh flavors. The topiary displays you'll find throughout the park are both whimsical and impressive. If you visit, you are sure to come home with some truly gorgeous photos from this special seasonal event.

    My fellow panelists and I all wish you a magical spring trip and would love to help you plan additional details if you need more help along the way.

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
