    Is Disney still performing shows and parades? Wondering which features are no longer operating due to the pandemic?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sofia! It looks like you'll be kicking-off summer with a visit to Mickey and Minnie's Florida home!

    The Walt Disney World Resort has taken many steps to keep Guests and Cast Members safe! Part of their safety practice is to reduce settings which draw large, stationary crowds. For this reason the traditional parades, as well as stage and fireworks shows, have been temporarily suspended. However, Mickey knows that Guests are excited to see him and some of his pals!

    The Disney Parks have set-up special ways for Guests to still see, wave to, and take photos of their favorite Disney characters while visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth! Magic Kingdom Park holds character cavalcades throughout the day! Characters can be seen in Disney's Hollywood Studios as they roll through the park in true celebrity fashion in motorcades. In EPCOT, some of our favorite characters can be found on a "world tour" as characters make their way through the park! Finally, Disney's Animal Kingdom Park has found one of the most creative ways for characters to greet Guests as they can be seen making their way down Discovery River via flotillas!

    Sofia, my family visited during Christmastime! I captured a great photo of my sons in Magic Kingdom Park as the Mickey and Minnie cavalcade went through the park! That picture is now framed on my desk! I hope you have a great visit! Have your camera ready!
