    I am taking my daughter to Disney world in May 2020, and I was wondering if you have a list of characters that we are able to meet? I know that Moana won't be there, and princess Sofia isn't there anymore

    Greetings, Brooke!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. One of my favorite parts of visiting Walt Disney World Resort is getting to interact with the Characters! There is someone for everyone - from Gaston to Goofy, Princess Jasmine to Chewy - everyone is accounted for!

    You are correct, Moana is currently on a wayfinding adventure, and Princess Sofia has to open court in Enchancia, but there are plenty of other friends to greet. You can find the list of Character Greetings online here or on your My Disney Experience app. I like to use the app real-time while we are in the Parks to find the closest Character encounters. Last time we were at Disney's Hollywood Studios, the app pointed us in the direction of warm hugs, and we "melted" with Olaf for about 15 minutes before other Guests arrived! So, keep an EAR out on your app; you never know when magic is just around the corner!

    Some greetings take FastPass+ reservations, so when planning your trip, check and see if an encounter is available. Also, if you have a favorite Disney Pal, I would suggest making a Character Dining Reservation. That way, you are assured one-on-one time with your VIP!

    Brooke, if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to come back. ChEARs to a magical vacation!
