    Kira from MA Asked

    I am looking to book a vacation for early November. Will the parks be easing up restrictions by then? It’s my children’s first time so I want to be sure it’s great and that they can take pictures with characters. Thank you!

    Hello Kira and welcome to planDisney, we're so glad you stopped by!

    How delightful it is to hEar you're planning a November visit for your dear family to the most magical place on earth!  I have to say that November and the Holidays are my most favourite times of the yEar to vacation at Walt Disney World Resort, I love everything from the cinnamon-scented aromas to the twinkling Christmas decor - it's all just so magical during this special Yuletide season.

    I can just imagine how excited your Mouseketeers must be about their 1st ever visit to Walt Disney World Resort!  It really is an unforgettable experience to see the magic of Disney for the 1st through your child's eyes. This is why I can certainly empathise about Knowing Before you Visit the Disney Theme Parks with your family, and therefore it makes me so happy to share that Guests can still wave to all their favourite Disney characters as they appEar in various cavalcades & cruises such as -

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Entertainment: Shout ahoy! to Mickey, Minnie & pals on their flotillas as they cruise down the river at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
    Disney's Hollywood Studios Entertainment: Catch Mickey & friends, and Pixar pals in their own motorcades, plus join Disney Junior friends in Disney Junior Play & Dance.
    Epcot Entertainment: So much fun to see Princess Promenades & the Mickey & Friends World Tour!
    - Magic Kingdom Entertainment: Many different character cavalcades featuring Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Princesses, and even Miss Tinker Bell. 

    Plus Guests are able to enjoy the pixie-dusted experience of Character Dining at select Disney restaurants including the classic Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort!  And as face coverings are not currently required when actively eating or drinking, Chef Mickey's makes for a great spot to snap socially distanced selfies with the Big Cheese himself!

    I'm so looking forward to Returning to a World of Magic with my own family later on this yEar, and like you, I'm hoping that perhaps things may look a little differently than they do today.  It's true to say that none of us can honestly predict how long any restrictions or pauses will be in place during these unprecedented times.  However, it really is a great comfort to know Mickey is doing such an excellent job of taking care of the health and safety of both Guests and Cast Members alike whilst we are all dealing with a global pandemic. 

    And lastly, Kira, I thought you may also find these Incredible Tips to make it a Magical Visit to be a really useful planning resource for your November plans to spend time with your lovely family at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
