    Hello Guadalupe,

    I'm happy to hear you're planning for your return to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Some of the most fun moments we enjoy on our Walt Disney World Resort vacations are the "then and now" photo moments when we recreate pictures of our family with our favorite Disney friends.   

    One of the fun reasons to follow the Disney Parks Blog is to stay up to date with all the new and exciting announcements about the Walt Disney World Resort. It's especially fun and exciting to see the experiences we know and love and look forward to get added back to the schedules for the theme parks. For example, you can now see nighttime fireworks spectaculars again, and that's simply awesome news! Happily Ever After is one of my favorite fireworks shows and I just love that we can experience it again.  

    There are some experiences that we all look forward to that are currently still on pause, and this includes character greetings at the moment. The good news is that you can still spot your favorite Disney friends as you play in the theme parks. For example, the Mickey and Friends Cavalcade makes for a fun party celebration along the Magic Kingdom Park parade routes. 

    Guadalupe, I'm certain that Minnie herself is looking forward to the day when she can give a hello and a hug to all her friends, including your grandson. Currently, she's saying a socially distant hello when you see her at her fun spots like Minnie’s Seasonal Dining -- Summertime Dine at Hollywood & Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    I think the best idea is to stay up to date with the theme park announcements and updates to see how changes are introduced as you get closer to your vacation time.

    Here's wishing you all the magic for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
