Character Dining at Riveria

    Ivette from IL Asked

    My family and I will be in Disney at the end of the month, the final week of March. Are characters signing autograph books at this time?

    Greetings, Ivette! Welcome to planDisney! Your Walt Disney World vacation is less than a week away! I bet you can already envision turning the corner of Town Square and seeing the breathtaking sight of Cinderella Castle as it comes into view (*sigh*). Your Disney dreams are about to come true!

    While Character experiences look a little different right now, rest assured that our Disney pals are still there to give us a wave hello. As the Walt Disney World Resort continues its implementation of health and safety protocols, we can't get quite close enough yet for autographs. However, I'm loving some of the new ways Disney is bringing the joy of Characters into our day. You can wave and blow (masked) kisses to your favorite friends during the Character Cavalcades in all four Theme Parks. The ones in Disney's Animal Kingdom Park are especially fun because they're floating past on boats in Character Flotillas! The cavalcades don't run on an exact schedule so you can't really plan for them, but that's all part of the fun. They'll just pop up when you least expect it!

    And speaking of Characters sort of popping up, keep an eye out throughout the Parks for a Disney friend to be romping on the grass, peeking out from a balcony, or waving from high atop the Castle wall. It's like a fun game you can play during your vacation!

    There are still plenty of Character Dining opportunities, too. That's your chance to snap a fun selfie with one of your pals while remaining at a safe distance. And in some spots, you may get a printed autograph card with the signatures of the friends you made during your meal. Be sure to ask your server if they have one available!

    Ivette, one day we can start bringing our beloved autograph books back to the Theme Parks. In the meantime, I hope you find lots of fun ways to enjoy a special greeting from your favorite Disney friends. I wish you and your family all the pixie dust during your vacation, and please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    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
