    Are characters signing autograph books at this time?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Amberlie. I'm so glad you stopped by with this great question! It looks like you'll be arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort super soon. Are you counting down the days? So exciting!

     The Walt Disney World Resort is committed to being intentional and gradual in their approach to health and safety protocols in an effort to provide a safe and magical visit for all Guests. As part of this phased reopening, Characters are not signing autograph books at this time. My kids always carry autograph books with them on our Disney vacations, so I thought they'd be really disappointed in the change for our most recent visit a few months ago. But they weren't in the least! They still got to see their favorite Disney Characters make impromptu appearances throughout the theme parks, and loved getting to greet them, even from a distance. One morning, we enjoyed Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. We'd typically take autograph books along with us to Character Dining Experiences, but we didn't, knowing that the Characters aren't currently signing autographs. At the end of our brunch, each of our kiddos received an adorable card that featured the signatures of all the Disney Characters there! My preschooler especially loved receiving the keepsake.

     If you haven't booked a Character Dining Experience for your upcoming stay, I encourage you to use the My Disney Experience mobile app to join the Mobile Dine Walk-Up list at one (or more!) of the participating restaurants. Chef Mickey's and Tusker House Restaurant are two of my favorites that offer Mobile Dine Walk-Up availability!

     I hope this was helpful, Amberlie. I'm wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
