    We are planning to visit in September of 2021 just curious if some of the limitations will be lifted by then? Like if Character meals will be reinstated like the character buffet breakfast with all of the Disney pals?

    Hi there Demaris! Welcome to planDisney. I'm so glad you stopped by to chat about your upcoming vacation. Before you know it the remaining months will turn into days, and your magical stay will be here! September is a wonderful time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort; crowd levels tend to be lower since school is back in session, and the Florida weather is still conducive to making a splash at the pools. Let's make your trip a memorable one.

    My family has an exciting, multi-generational visit planned for August 2021, so just like you I am waiting and watching to see what experiences will be available by the time we travel. I like to keep my eyes on the Disney Parks Blog for important breaking news and special announcements. My little Mouseketeers love to dine with their favorite Disney pals, and at this time we are looking forward to making reservations for several "meals with character." 

    Currently, modified character dining is available at the following locations: Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera at Disney's Riviera Resort, Hollywood & Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and the Garden Grill Restaurant in EPCOT. Some of my fellow panelists have recently dined at a few of these and unanimously praised their experiences. Sarah B especially enjoyed the "family style" food service and physically distant character interactions. She captured some adorable pictures of her little ones having fun with Minnie Mouse and friends!

    Demaris, as your visit approaches, I recommend checking the Dining: Know Before You Go information page to review the most current offerings. Remember to make reservations at your preferred restaurants beginning 60 days before your check-in date. I hope you have a fantastic vacation, and if there is anything else we at planDisney can do to make your stay even more memorable, come back and see us again. We're all ears!
