    Hi, I am visiting Disneyland, Orlando during mid of April 2022. Could you provide below details. 1. Are Characters still signing autograph books? If so, I can carry one 2. Are we allowed to carry water, snacks or food inside Disney parks?

    Hi Sangeetha,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for the questions! How exciting your vacation is very soon, you’re so close to the magic!

    When it comes to your first question, Disney Parks Blog recently announced that Disney Character Greetings will be returning this spring as soon as April 18th! This means that guests will be able to take pictures, hug the characters, and get autographs. This was some really exciting and welcoming news for Disney lovers everywhere! 

    As the article details, the character greetings will be beginning in phases around the Walt Disney World Resort. Stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog for further information on which sites might be available during your trip. You can also speak to a Guest Experience Cast Member once you’re in the Theme Parks if you have any questions, just look for the blue umbrellas! Pro Tip: use the My Disney Experience mobile app to navigate during your time in the Theme Parks.

    As for your second question, yes, guests are allowed to bring in food and drinks into the Theme Parks! Please note that all glass containers (with the exception of baby food) are not permitted in the Theme Parks, so you’ll want to make sure your food is stored properly. Growing up, we always brought in snacks and drinks just to keep us fueled throughout a busy day. Just make sure to save room for a fun treat like some popcorn or a Mickey Ice Cream sandwich! 

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your Walt Disney World vacation this month. If you have any other last minute planning or vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
