    My family and I arrive at Disney World in December of this year and I am wondering how Character Meet and Greets are being done now. Are we able to get Autographs? Can we take Pictures? Any information would be appreciated.

    Hi there, Tami! Welcome back to planDisney! We're always so happy when our pals stop by for another visit! 

    Oh my Minnie ears, your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is less than a week away! You've spent so much time planning this magical trip, and now it's nearly here. How exciting! I'm sure there are visions of Mickey waffles dancing in your head!

    And speaking of Mickey, what's a Disney vacation without saying hello to the Mouse himself? Fortunately, you'll get to do just that! Some character meet-and-greets have returned to Walt Disney World, although in a modified fashion. You'll be able to say hello and interact with a few characters one-on-one, but no hugs or autographs just yet. You can also smile for a distanced selfie so you'll have a nice memento of your visit. To get an updated look at all the characters you can see in the theme parks now, check the "Character Experiences" listing on the Walt Disney World website.

    Tami, be sure to keep an eye out for the cavalcades that are still parading through the theme parks each day! To see the exact time the next cavalcade will be passing by, head to the My Disney Experience app on your phone and click on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of your screen. On the next page, click on "Tip Board," select the theme park, and scroll down for the showtimes. It's a great way to make sure you see all of your Disney favorites!

    I hope this helps you plan a vacation with lots of "character," Tami! Thank you so much for coming to see us, and have a jolly Disney holiday!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
