    Due to CoVid-19 restrictions, will there be any characters around the parks to meet and take photos with?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jessica! I'm so glad to be able to answer your question about your upcoming vacation. Can you believe that it's just over a month away? You're going to get to experience so much magic, and I'm happy to walk you through exactly what to expect when you take off for your trip in October.

    At the moment, Disney Characters are appearing in fun new ways around the theme parks that still give you the chance to see them and maybe snag a selfie while still being mindful of physical distancing measures that are currently in place. You might see Mickey and Minnie Mouse in a special cavalcade on Main Street U.S.A., or some friends from The Lion King on the water at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and I've even seen Anna and Elsa doing a royal procession around the countries of World Showcase at EPCOT! There are even a few Character Dining locations that are doing a modified experience as well, so be sure to check out the breakfast menu at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera or have a look at Garden Grill Restaurant, which is currently serving lunch and dinner. 

    Jessica, have you had a chance to check out the Disney Parks Blog? It's been the number one source of updates about the phased reopening process at Walt Disney World Resort, so I recommend that you bookmark it and check back frequently in the weeks leading up to your vacation! Things are changing all the time with new entertainment and dining options being offered, so you never know what kind of magic might happen before your trip this fall.

    Have a magical day!

I'm a personal stylist and I live in Texas with my husband and our three rescue animals. We are Disney Parks-obsessed and love enjoying all the magic that's out there especially for grown-ups. In fact, we even opted out of a tropical honeymoon to spend a blissful week at Walt Disney World Resort instead! I'm thrilled to be on the planDisney Panel and I'm excited to share everything I've learned from all of our trips and help you plan a memorable family vacation.  Learn More About Jessica
