Character greetings are back?

What about buffets? My friend has a Crystal Palace ADR and high hopes……

I saw that on TikTok. I’m thinking it means the old character meet and greets are coming back. Hopefully character meals will follow.

They are teasing an announcement that is per rumor coming tomorrow that normal character meet/greets will return in April

I hope the meals will come too but I didn’t hear/see anything about that yet.

In this video, Mickey appears to be inviting us in and telling us it’s okay to hug again.

How silly is it that I am verklempt??

As a school district administrator- I have rather strong feelings about TikToc. I have to get past that to even look at the video .

Ok I get that.

There’s lots of bad on TikTok but there are plenty of quite fine things too. This would be one of them.

Basically the video shows Mickey gesturing as if to invite you in. Then he wraps his arms around himself and hugs himself and then nods as if to say, “Yup! Gimme a hug!”

It’s being reported elsewhere. https://www.wdwmagic.com/attractions/town-square-exposition-hall/news/30mar2022-disney-preparing-for-the-imminent-return-of-non-distanced-character-meet-and-greets-at-walt-disney-world.htm
One person commented that there will be a Disney Parks Blog tomorrow with more information. There’s speculation that they return after Easter.

Just to clarify for me: I thought character greetings were already back but they just weren’t hugging / directly interacting? Like not just Mickey at Topolino’s but I thought you could wait to meet princesses in Fantasyland, etc. So this would just be a return to hugs and personal interaction, right?

I’m no fan of TikTok, either, BUT I’d be over the moon and back to have M&G back by June!!!

I have been hoping for this and for character meals as well! I booked a Trattoria Al Forno breakfast on our departure day, just in case the characters come back.

This makes me so happy! One of my 3yo has been talking about hugging Mickey and I’ve been putting off telling her she won’t be able to. It will be great if they’re back by our trip (last week of April :crossed_fingers::crossed_fingers:

I saw in multiple places on social media that there “should” be an announcement today that full character interactions are back on 4/18
