    Hello, My family and I are traveling to Disneyland this summer (late June) and are HUGE Oswald the Lucky Rabbit fans. Do you know if Oswald is currently doing meet and greets with guests and, if so, do you know if that will continue through our visit? TY!

    Hi there, Jon!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks so much for stopping by with your question about Character Experiences at Disneyland Resort. Oh boy - I'm thrilled to hear your family will be visiting The Happiest Place on Earth this summer! There's no better time to visit because the Disney100 Celebration at Disneyland Resort is happening now, Jon. All that's missing is you!

    Meeting Disney characters in the theme parks is one of my favorite things to do when I visit the Disneyland Resort. There's nothing quite like getting a big hug from one of your best Disney pals! Jon, while Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Ortensia the Cat were temporarily greeting Guests during the Lunar New Year celebration at Disney California Adventure Park, this Character Experience ended in mid-February 2023. I chatted with a friendly Cast Member who indicated that, although Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is not currently greeting Guests regularly at the Disneyland Resort, he may still be spotted at Disney California Adventure Park on an infrequent basis. Jon, Character Experiences are subject to change, so I encourage you to download the Disneyland Resort mobile app so that you can check which characters are greeting Guests (and where to find them) in the theme parks during your visit!

    Even though you may not score a hug from your favorite rabbit during your visit, you'll likely catch this classic character represented in the theme parks, Jon! In fact, there is a 1920s-style shop called Oswald's located in Disney California Adventure Park that features merchandise (and even the shop name!) inspired by Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Also, have you seen the Disney100 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Collection that recently became available on shopDisney and in the Disney Parks? I can't think of a better way to display your love for Oswald than by wearing him on your sleeve (literally!) during your visit to Disneyland Resort!

    Jon, Mickey's Toontown is set to open to Guests in mid-March 2023 at Disneyland Park and, while Oswald the Lucky Rabbit may not be featured in this area, many other favorite classic characters will be! I encourage you to check out Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway during your visit and recommend watching the 10 Mickey cartoons depicted in the attraction queue to add an extra element of pixie dust to your time in Mickey's Toontown.

    I hope this information has been helpful as you plan your visit to The Happiest Place on Earth, Jon. I'm wishing you and your family a truly magical and memorable time at the Disneyland Resort! If you have any additional planning questions ahead of your visit, please feel free to drop by planDisney again or reach out to a Disneyland Resort specialist directly anytime. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
