    Allison from OH Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Will the parks still be operating at a reduced capacity in September 2021? Also, will there be character meet and greets?

    Welcome, Allison! 

    We are so happy that you brought your question to planDisney! You’ll be eating all of the Mickey-shaped treats and flying over Neverland before you can say, “Oh boy!” 

    We are not positive when Walt Disney World Resort theme parks will be operating at full capacity again, and highly recommend Guests to continue making their Disney Park Pass Reservations as this will ensure your entrance to the parks while they are still operating at a limited capacity. Be sure to visit the Disney Park Blog regularly to be up-to-date with the latest announcements surrounding park capacities!

    We are also unsure of when traditional Character Experiences will be offered again. To promote health and wellness, the personal, one-on-one Character Experiences we have grown to love have had to be modified. However, there are amazing Cavalcades parading down the theme park streets and you might just spot a Character or two while wandering the parks! (I was able to see Winnie the Pooh catching butterflies at EPCOT near The Land Pavilion during my last visit!) The Disney Parks Blog may have additional announcements about Character Experiences as you near your arrival date, Allison! 

    Another great way to see Characters is through dining experiences! Though traditional Character Dining Experiences look a little different, they are still a world of fun! I’d highly recommend a breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera, for the iconic Breakfast à la Art with Mickey & Friends! This exclusive breakfast at the rooftop restaurant at Disney’s Riviera Resort is one of my all-time favorites! Be sure to make a reservation 60 days prior to your arrival! 

    There’s a lot that goes into planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! If you have additional questions, Allison, we’d love to hear from you again at planDisney! 

    See ya real soon!
