    Can you still meet Sofia the First in California Advanture?

    A royal welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Holly! It’s great to have you hEAR!

    Sofia the First has been one of my children’s favorite Characters for some time, too! We enjoyed meeting her in Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure Park last year, but it looks like she may have headed back to Enchancia for a while. Last spring, we had the pleasure of welcoming Fancy Nancy to Hollywood Land for some “magnifique” meet-and-greets! Plus, the friendliest bat around, Vampirina, has joined the Disney Junior Dance Party! My family loves watching her perform -- she even likes teaching us a special dance! This super fun dance party is the perfect way to shake the sillies out while singing along with favorite Disney Junior Characters, including Doc McStuffins, Timon, and even Mickey and Minnie Mouse! They make a special drive to the party from Hot Dog Hills… you won’t want to miss their epic race into Disney Theater! 

    I recommend downloading the Disneyland app so you can keep track of showtimes and Characters for the day. To find your favorite Characters, tap on the map at the top, then select “Characters” from the drop-down menu. Next, tap on “Show List” in the upper-right corner for a list of all Characters currently available for meet-and-greets. You’ll see the Character’s picture, name, and location.

    My children also love meeting Bo Peep over on Pixar Pier, near Toy Story Midway Mania! Some of their favorite attractions on Pixar Pier include Jessie’s Critter Carousel, Toy Story Midway Mania!, and Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind. 

    Lastly, I recommend staying tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for any updates regarding Sofia the First and her plans for returning to the parks in the future! 

    I hope this helps you plan some awesome Character Experiences at the Happiest Place on Earth! Please stop by with any additional questions you may have… I’m all EARs!

    Hope to see ya’ real soon!
