    Is Sophia the first going to be a character interaction again? We travel to Disney World next year?

    Greetings Gemma, I'm happy to wish you a most Royal welcome to planDisney!

    I can't believe it's now been over a decade since Sofia the First began visiting Walt Disney World Resort all the way from Enchancia to meet and greet with guests. I remember just how popular she and our other Disney Junior pals were on Disney Cruise Line, and even during some select dining experiences over at Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    At the current time, Sofia the First is not expected to be visiting Walt Disney World Resort to greet guests and Cast Members cannot say whether she'll be making any appearances in the future. (I wish I could channel Cedric the Sorcerer and conjure up a way to see into the future, but there's truly no way for anyone to say for sure beyond observing that as Sofia the First no longer has a backdrop nor meeting location, there's a lower likelihood that she'll be coming back.) Instead, Doc McStuffins continues to meet alongside Vampirina and Fancy Nancy, but if there are ever any announcements regarding the return of now-rare Character appearances for special events or celebrations I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog ahead of your visit!

    Offerings such as Character Appearances are always subject to change without prior notice, and sometimes these announcements may come as a surprise when a pal from the past makes a reappearance; often these are for limited-time engagements like select specially-ticketed events or quick runDisney surprises during a race. (I personally hope a certain leader of the Never Land Pirates might pop up one day!)

    Hope this helps, Gemma! Be sure to come back to planDisney again if you do ever hear of any inklings about our reigning Princess of Enchancia coming for a return visit and we'll be glad to look into it once more!

    Wishing you all the best on your future Princess quests,
