Buzz Lightyear and Friends on Stage

    We are sailing aboard the Magic next month for its Eastbound Transatlantic cruise and I was wondering, under the current social distancing protocols during character interactions, will Mickey and Friends still sign autographs? How about crew pin exchanges?

    Ahoy there, Brad, and welcome aboard planDisney! I'm so glad you'll be embarking on a Transatlantic itinerary with your crew in just a few weeks!

    The Transatlantic itineraries are a definite bucket-list-worthy voyage, and I'm thrilled for you to experience everything that's included on a Disney Cruise Line vacation, from the exciting Ports of Call to my favorite part of Disney Cruise Line - sea days! 

    And you'll have plenty of them!

    As of this writing, neither autographs from characters nor pin trading are back on the agenda, Brad. While I'm sure that is probably a bit upsetting to hear, these things have a tendency to change like the tides. Still, though nothing official is scheduled at this moment, it never hurts to be prepared with a few pins to trade should your tide come in unexpectedly! After all, one of the best things about pin trading is how little space they take up when compared to other souvenirs.

    Looking at you, popcorn buckets...

    As always, I suggest keeping the Know Before You Go page bookmarked in your browser so you can check it regularly as your embarkation date approaches. This will also give you the latest information on health and safety protocols, as well as any indications that some of the yet-to-return activities are on the cusp of being included in your Disney Cruise Line Navigator app when you climb aboard! 

    I wish I'd had better news, Brad, but I hope with a little faith, trust, pixie dust - and a little extra packing space - you'll be prepared for no matter what materializes. Thank you so much for your question, and if you have any others that surface before you depart, please drop me another line here at planDisney! 

    Until then, may your anchor be tight and your compass true!
