    Are the night shows still going on at the parks? And the parades?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Denise!

    Planning a visit to Walt Disney World involves so many wonderful details, so it's good to keep an eye on the most recent offerings. Glad you asked!

    Walt Disney World is continuing its phased reopening of the parks and resorts, so Cast Members are closely following operational guidelines set forth by health authorities. This will enable Guests to enjoy a most magical vacation while still practicing physical distancing while visiting. 

    Currently, instead of the entertainment experiences and parades Guests have come to enjoy in years past (which make physical distancing difficult), Walt Disney Disney World is offering unexpected moments of magic throughout the parks. You'll find cavalcades of characters popping up throughout the day, each in a new and exciting setting. Keep your eyes open, too, for sightings of some fan favorites in locations typically considered off-limits. (My current favorite is Pooh in Magic Kingdom. So sweet!) These are sure to delight all who are lucky enough to catch them. 

    The post Returning to a World of Magic will give you a great overview of park specifics now. For more information on events and experiences, check out Enchanting Extras Collection: Know Before You Go. For those staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you'll find some very helpful information on Disney Resort Hotels: Know Before You Go also. There are even very special updates on dining, so take a look at Dining: Know Before You Go, too. 

    My family is anxiously awaiting our return "home" to enjoy some truly unique opportunities while they are available. I'm sure you'll find some new favorites, too!

    Of course, don't forget to download the very handy My Disney Experience mobile app so that you can keep an eye on current park hours and offerings,  your reservations in the Disney Park Pass system, dining reservations, and so much more!

    As you plan the practically perfect in every way day, Denise, be sure to send more questions our way. We love to help!
