    I'm taking my son on his 1st ever Disney trip in June. I know when the parks reopened, they temporarily stopped character autographs, but with the new CDC guidelines with masks and social distancing, are they allowing autographs now?

    Hi Ashlee! You are a great mom! I remember taking my sons to the Disney Parks for their first visits! So many happy memories! My wife and I have loved watching our boys grow up with the Disney Parks! Some of their fondest memories are of meeting their favorite characters...Mickey, Timon, and Captain Jack Sparrow!

    While some health and safety measures have been updated, at the present time there are no changes to character meet-and-greet and autograph opportunities. They are still not taking place in their traditional format. The Disney Parks have been incredibly creative in making sure that Guests can still see some of their favorite characters! They make special appearances during cavalcades, motorcades, flotillas, and even surprise appearances in hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection! I captured a great picture of my sons at Christmastime with the Mickey and Friends Cavalcade in the background!

    You can also see characters at the Character Dining locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort! Some of the restaurants currently offering Character Dining include Chef Mickey’s, Topolino’s Terrace, Hollywood and Vine, and Garden Grill Restaurant!
