    Hi Jo, 

    Thank you for taking the time to visit planDisney with your question, we are so glad you reached out to us!  One of my favorite memories of my daughter at Walt Disney World Resort is how much she loved interacting with the characters at Meet and Greets as well as while dining, so I completely understand wanting these precious experiences to return as soon as possible.  

    Since the re-opening of Walt Disney World Resort last year, some experiences look different than what we remember, however they are still magical.  Currently, several locations offer character dining and while the experience is slightly different than the way we remember with the characters coming table to table to sign autographs, it is still a fun interaction.  I like that it is something new, it brings a new twist on a classic experience.  The same goes for character meet and greets, while the new experience has changed from past experiences, the characters in the Theme Parks offer a cute twist on what we are used to and while different, it is still very magical.  I like the way the characters seem to be playing and interacting more genuinely throughout the Theme Parks, it is unexpected and refreshing!

    I do recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as well as the official Walt Disney World Resort website for any updates regarding new or returning experiences, Jo.  With the recent announcements of Fireworks beginning today, as well as the 50th Anniversary Celebration, there are so many exciting experiences in store for us at Walt Disney World Resort.  I hope you will be back among the magic soon!  

    If you have any other questions, please come back and visit us here at planDisney again, we are always happy to help.
