No Meet & Greets, But Disney Characters Still To Surprise Guests in Special Ways at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World is getting ready for the grand phased reopening on July 11. Disney previously shared there will be no character meet and greets, parades, or nighttime spectaculars. They have however updated their website to let guests know there are a few surprises to be expected!

According to Disney’s website:

Attractions and Entertainment: To accommodate physical distancing, some experiences will be temporarily paused when the parks initially reopen, including:

  • Parades and nighttime spectaculars
  • Character Greetings
  • Playgrounds

Our Characters will still be in the parks to entertain and delight our Guests. Additionally, you’ll be able to experience many favorite attractions and dozens of entertainment offerings.

From special cavalcades down the Magic Kingdom park parade route and friends sailing the waterways of Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park to processions along World Showcase promenade at EPCOT and motorcades on Hollywood Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, each area will come to life throughout the day. You never know when a party of your pals may come by, so be prepared for plenty of surprises! Note: Some experiences may be modified, limited in capacity and subject to availability or closure.
