    Hello! Any news on when the rest of the character meet and greets will return at dining locations? Also will dining plans ever return?

    Hi Jonah, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for reaching out to us with your questions about Character Dining and the Disney Dining Plan.  My family and I love all things Disney Dining and we do tend to plan our visits around our favorite Dining Locations and we miss the Disney Dining Plans terribly! 

    As of right now, there is no date for when the Disney Dining Plans will be available for guests to enjoy.  If you have an existing reservation, if any plans are announced you will be able to add the Disney Dining Plan to your reservation should it meet the criteria.  

    As for Character Dining, there are several locations that have modified character interactions, including:

    We recently dined at Tusker House Restaurant and we enjoyed the experience very much.  While we weren't able to take traditional photos with the characters, my daughter enjoyed taking selfies with them and I also felt like we had more time to enjoy the experience.  Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog as well as the Official Walt Disney World Resort website for the most up to date information regarding new and returning experiences at Walt Disney World Resort.  

    I hope this information is useful, Jonah.  If you have any other questions, please come back and visit planDisney again.  We are always happy to help.
