    Are there any interactions with the characters yet?

    Howdy Jacey!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by and sharing your question with us!

    I love to get a big hug from Mickey Mouse each time I visit the Walt Disney World Resort!  The Walt Disney World Resort is currently working very hard to keep all guests safe by implementing minimal person-to-person contact and maintaining proper social distancing between all guests and Cast Members.  Due to these safety measures, guests are not currently able to get that big hug from Mickey Mouse but rest assured that you will interact with Mickey and his pals!  These interactions may look different, but we really had a blast with all the character interactions on our last trip.  We loved finding Mickey and his pals around every corner throughout all the theme parks!  You will be able to enjoy character cavalcades, princess processionals, characters traveling around in the coolest cars, characters cruising through the waterways on boats, and characters waving to guests at almost every advantage point!  With the crowds being much lower, characters can wave and interact with guests from a distance.  My family loved all the character interactions and the ability to see many characters that they had not seen in years!  Even though these character interactions may look a little different at this time, they are still unforgettable!

    I have some exciting news for you!  The Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be in full bloom during your visit!  This is an amazing festival full of fun for everyone!  I love all the beautiful topiary displays of some of my favorite characters, the unique outdoor kitchens serving us yummy cuisine and drinks, and the live entertainment!  This festival is so much fun, and I know you will enjoy the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival just as much as I do!

    Your vacation is “Just Around the Riverbend,” and I know you are ready to make unforgettable memories!  To stay up-to-date on everything scheduled to re-open, new attractions, new dining experience, and when you can hug Mickey Mouse again, check out the Disney Parks Blog!  The Disney Parks Blog is my go-to site to learn about everything to do and see in the weeks and months to come!

    If you have any more questions while planning your next vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort, please come back to planDisney, Jacey!  We look forward to helping you again!

    See Ya Real Soon,
