    Hi, me and my family of 4 are planning a trip to Disney the week of May 16 and are interested in Bluey and Encanto - can you tell me the best places to go for that experience?

    Hi Yolanda! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh boy! You're only a few sleeps away from being at the Most Magical Place on Earth! I'm sure your family is extremely excited about the adventure you are about to take. With so much to see and do, you will be busy having fun the entire time! One thing my family does leading up to our stay is to choose our top two things to do each day. This way we prioritize these experiences to ensure that we all get to do everything we were hoping for. 

    Being a father of two younger daughters, I am very well versed in both Bluey and Encanto. So much so, that I can probably repeat full episodes of Bluey and sing each Encanto song word for word! This is much to the dismay of my girls, but embarrassing them tends to be one of my specialties! Unfortunately, at this time there are no experiences at Walt Disney World for either Bluey or Encanto. If your little ones are interested in any other Disney Junior characters, there are meet and greets located at Animation Courtyard in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Doc McStuffins, Fancy Nancy, and Vampirina are all meeting at select times. With the return of traditional meet and greets, you can hug and interact with them all again! 

    With Encanto just being released late last year, Walt Disney World has not incorporated any characters or attractions into the parks just yet. I do anticipate a meet and greet in the future, but this will most likely not be the case by your visit next week. With the popularity of the movie, many Guests are hopeful that a new attraction may be an option as well. This is pure speculation on my part, but how cool would it be for Disney Imagineers to replicate parts of the movie into a Disney experience!

    You are arriving just in time for many new and returning experiences to the Resort. As I mentioned earlier, you can now hug your favorite Disney characters again. There are plenty of meet and greets at each of the parks that will have your favorite princesses and classic Disney characters. Also, make sure to check out the Festival of Fantasy Parade that takes place daily at the Magic Kingdom Park. Many of your favorite characters take part in this experience and it is a great way to see them all at once. If your family has an EPCOT day planned, Remy's Ratatouille Adventure opened last October in the France Pavilion and has easily become a favorite of ours. I highly recommend making this attraction a priority on your trip!

    Yolanda, I hope your family has an amazing time on your Walt Disney World vacation!

    See ya real soon!
