    Going to Disney for the first time in July and I REALLY want to meet and hug the characters and get autographs. Will they be hugging and signing autographs again by July?

    Hi Logan!

    Just like you, I love meeting my favorite Disney Characters during a visit to the "Most Magical Place on Earth" and some of my favorite vacation memories are when my little princes got to meet the Disney Princesses. So I'm glad to see that you are planning ahead for this item on your "must-do" list!

    Currently, the Character Experiences at Walt Disney World Resort are slightly modified for everyone’s safety and we don’t have any information about when Character Experiences will return to closer interactions. I recommend that you follow the Disney Parks Blog for the latest Character Experience updates. Recently, we heard the exciting news that the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is returning to Magic Kingdom on March 9, so hopefully will hear news about the return of autographs and warm hugs in time for your vacation!

    Please feel free to come back to see us if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
