    Are shows taking place and is character dining available?

    Brittany! Welcome to planDisney! We’re so happy you’re here! 

    It has felt like our world has gone Topsy Turvy, and we definitely miss the traditional shows and Character Dining experiences that usually reign the magical universe of Walt Disney World Resort! I’m looking forward to the day when entertainment at The Most Magical Place on Earth is a little less upsy-daisy... And it seems (with a few recent announcements) that we may be getting a little closer to more experiences joining the fun! 

    Check out the Entertainment page and the Attractions page for what’s currently available at Walt Disney World Resort, Brittany! Currently, my favorite little bursts of entertainment have been the Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along, the Affection Section, and For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration! These, paired with the Cavalcades parading down the theme park streets, have given me that little dose of live Disney magic that I always crave while vacationing! 

    Beat the drums and blow the trumpets because Festival of the Lion King is making its proud return this summer! We were so excited for this announcement as it gives us hope that there will be additional shows returning soon! Keep your eyes on the Disney Parks Blog for the most recent announcements surrounding the entertainment at Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Pour the wine and cut the cheese! If you’re looking for Character Dining Experiences, there are a few modified experiences that are sure to bring a smile to your face! Here it is, the moment you’ve been waiting for! Chef Mickey’s, Garden Grill Restaurant, Hollywood & Vine, and Topolino’s Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera, are all currently offering modified Character Dining Experiences. Though the Characters will not be coming directly to your table, they will be offering waves, blowing kisses, and interacting with your party at a safe distance! You may even have luck spotting a familiar Character or two at Be Our Guest Restaurant, Cinderella’s Royal Table, and other fan-favorites! 

    Be sure to secure Dining Reservations 60 days before your vacation, Brittany, to ensure your spot at these incredible eateries! 

    We hope your vacation is magical! If you have any additional questions, or if you’re in search of a little extra pixie dust, we’d love to hear from you again at planDisney!
