    Is Meet-and-Greet with Disney characters happening at Disney World yet? I read it restarted in Disneyland as of mid-April but I am not sure if there are any updates for Disney World. Thanks!

    Welcome to planDisney, Wendy.

    It’s a jungle out there, isn’t it? I’m so glad you followed Mowgli and Baloo on their adventures and found your way here to us at planDisney. We know the Bare Necessities when it comes to planning Walt Disney World Resort vacations and love to help fellow Guests plan their best Disney days. After all, that’s what Disney friends are for!

    Wendy, there are moments in life that stick with you, moments that are embedded in your memory as if they just happened yesterday. For me, watching my niece meet Mickey Mouse for the first time is one of these core memory moments. Her eyes lit up like the sun, and her face crinkled into a giant smile. She ran to him and reached out for the biggest hug and didn’t want to let go. It was pure magic, I tell you! It’s moments like this that make a Walt Disney World Resort vacation so special. Moments like these have been greatly missed for quite some time, but I am elated to report that traditional character greetings are currently being phased back in at The Most Magical Place on Earth. This means you should have the opportunity to curtsy with a Disney Princess, twirl with Minnie Mouse, hug Goofy, waddle with Donald Duck, get a character’s autograph, and more during your vacation. Experiences could vary from location to location as things are “phased back in,” but you will definitely get to see some of your favorite Disney pals along the way.

    One easy way to find Character Experiences nearby is through the interactive map on your My Disney Experience Mobile App. Just choose “Characters” from the drop-down menu in the top-middle to see a list of available character greetings. If you click on the name of a character from that list, it will display their greeting times and where to find them. Wendy, you might want to consider purchasing Memory Maker for your vacation so you can have unlimited downloads of the Disney PhotoPass pictures taken during these character greetings. I know you will want to look back on them later.

    If you have further questions, Wendy, don’t hesitate to stop by planDisney again. We’re all (elephant) EARs and happy to help!

    Forget about your worries and your strife,
