    Hello, I have three very excited girls coming from the UK very soon. Can they get hugs and autographs over Easter?

    Hi Thomas!

    I'm so excited to hear that you are getting ready for a trip to Walt Disney World Resort and your Easter vacation is just around the corner! You and your girls will have a fantastic visit enjoying springtime at the "Most Magical Place on Earth!" Have you included a visit to the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival in your itinerary? It's the perfect way to experience the sights, sounds and tastes of the season during your trip.

    We just found out this week that based on the most recent health and safety guidance, Character Experiences will be returning to closer interactions. So beginning April 18, Guests will be able to get hugs and autographs from their favorite Disney Characters when visiting Character Experiences throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Keep in mind that this is a phased update, so these enhanced experiences will be available over the next several weeks and months. I recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as your trip approaches to stay updated on the experiences you will be able to enjoy. Hopefully, your girls will be able to get a hug from their favorite Disney Characters and Disney Princesses on the Monday after Easter!

    Since you are visiting Walt Disney World Resort with your own princesses, I definitely recommend that you include the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade in your "must-do" list. It's the perfect way to see a wide variety of Disney friends as they make their way through Magic Kingdom with beautiful dancers and amazing choreography! Since this parade is very popular, be sure to either grab a spot early or make a Lightning Lane reservation for the parade to get the best view.

    Let us know if you have additional questions as your trip approaches! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
