Get ready for some Disney hellos and hugs because as early as April 18, Disney will start reintroducing traditional character greetings at Walt Disney World Resorts, as well as aboard their Disney Cruise Line and at Aulani Resort in Hawaii, according to the Official Disney Parks Blog. That means you’ll be able to hug Mickey Mouse, get an autograph from Mulan, and share a laugh with Goofy.

Let’s face it… it feels so good to be out and about again, enjoying so much of what makes life so positively amazing. In and around Osceola County we have so much to be a part of and enjoy, and of course that includes our world-class theme parks. From SeaWorld Orlando, to Universal Orlando Resort, Legoland, and of course, the Disney Parks there is much to enjoy, and it keeps on getting better and better.

So, with the recent trends Disney has made the call to bring back some of their most beloved magic, like character greetings, dining experiences, and much more!

“As part of the 50th Anniversary celebration at Walt Disney World, we’ve welcomed back shows such as “Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire” and “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular,” along with the Disney “Festival of Fantasy” Parade and new experiences like “Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade,” Disney also shared on its blog.
