    When are magic hours coming back? When is the dessert fireworks party coming back? When are meet and greets coming back?

    Hi Jennifer!

    You’ve come to the right place with your questions. Here at planDisney, we are Disney fanatics and real Guests who love talking Disney and helping others plan their vacations! These are some great questions and I think I have some answers for you.

    Extra Magic Hours as we knew them will not be returning. But Hakuna Matata means no worries, Jennifer! There will be extra hours in the parks available for Guests staying at Disney Resort Collection Hotels coming back with a twist! Beginning with the 50th Anniversary Celebration in October of 2021, all four theme parks will be opening early every day for Guests of Disney Resort Collection Hotels! Also recently announced, theme parks will be open for extended evening hours on select nights for Guests staying at Disney Deluxe and Deluxe Villa Resorts.

    Jennifer, Mickey is truly a very good secret keeper and I wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t even tell Minnie when things are reopening! As of today, there have been no announcements as to when dessert parties or character meet and greets will return, and until the big cheese himself makes such an announcement, we simply don’t know. I can tell you that things are changing quickly and it seems that every week something new is coming back. Just last week Casey’s Corner in Magic Kingdom threw out the first pitch and is back serving hot dogs and my favorite french fries. This week the news was that all of the Disney Resort Collection Hotels now have scheduled reopening dates!

    When Mickey is ready to share information with us, the Disney Parks Blog is where that information can be found first. I recommend following them on social media or checking the page regularly for reopening updates. And please feel free to submit additional questions to us here on planDisney!

    Have a Magical Day!
