    Are characters walking around Disney World right now? What isn't open, currently? (COVID precautions)

    Howdy Kirk!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I am super excited for you!  It looks like you will be at the place “Where Dreams Come True” in just a few days!  Thank you for sharing your questions with us, and I have some exciting information that I know you will be happy to hear!

    The Walt Disney World Resort is doing a fantastic job keeping guests safe by social distancing and maintaining minimal person-to-person contact.  I have placed links in the highlighted text so you will be able to take a look at the “Know Before You Go” information.  To ensure the safety of all guests, at this time, you will not be able to give Mickey and his pals a big hug, but you will see Mickey and his pals throughout all four theme parks.  My family and I recently returned from a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort, and I got to wave at Mickey and his pals more than ever before!  There were lots of characters everywhere!  I saw the Country Bears hanging out above the main entrance to the Country Bear Jamboree, Joy and Winnie Pooh waving to guests in EPCOT, and Chewbacca waving at guests from the railing in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!  Keep your eyes open because you never know who you might find “Just Around the Riverbend!”  The parades that we love have been placed on pause but do not worry; you will see mini parades everywhere!  The Cavalcades and Processionals are Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!  We had so much fun watching them, and there are a few characters sprinkled throughout the mini parades that you don’t get to see very often!  Currently, there is a limited amount of live entertainment due to physical distancing and minimal person-to-person contact.  The Walt Disney World Resort may look a little different right now, but with all the added entertainment throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, you will have a blast!

    To assist in the safety measures that have been put into place, all guests are strongly encouraged to use the Mobile Food Order option on your My Disney Experience.  I love using Mobile Food Ordering!  With Mobile Food Ordering, you can choose your meal, modify it, and pay from your smartphone!  This allows more time to relax, and no one has to stand in line!

    It is almost time for you to take off to Neverland!  If you have any more questions before or during your vacation, please come back to planDisney, Kirk!  We look forward to helping you again!  When you see Mickey and his pals, please wave hi from all of us at planDisney!

    See Ya Real Soon,
