    Is it possible for my daughter to meet a Disney Imagineer during our visit to WDW? I see there used to be a dining option, but that was suspended. Are there any other options?

    Hey, howdy, hey Casey, and welcome to planDisney. I am so glad you asked this question because meeting an Imagineer is a lifelong dream for Disney fans of all ages. I remember visiting Disney Imagineering in California and marveling at the ideas and inventions our Imagineer guides showed us. 

    As of now, Walt Disney World Resort has temporarily closed the Dine with an Imagineer experience. There are opportunities that have popped up over the years that are both Disney events and private events but nothing is regularly scheduled. Should a Disney Imagineer experience pop up it will be announced on the Walt Disney World Resort website, Disney Parks Blog, and Disney Parks Instagram page so be sure to follow those daily. Your trip is in a few months and Walt Disney World Resort experiences are added often. In the meantime, check out this Journey into Imagineering, and be sure to follow the other links in the article.

    planDisney Pro Tip: I recommend you visit Guest Services to inquire if there is any "magic" that could be done for your daughter to meet a Disney Imagineer. You never know what is up their sleeves.

    Casey, I hope your New Year's Eve adventure helps you cross paths with a Disney Imagineer for your daughter. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
