Disney World has seen many changes for its big 50th anniversary. And, one of the updates that many fans make is the modification of the return of characters who meet on November 19th!
However, these encounters will be a little different than before. Guests will be able to continue to have personal characters while taking photos with social distances. But the autographs and hugs won’t come back yet. I, to further show the difference between these and the encounters and greetings we used to know, Disney has changed their name.
According to the Disney website, the five modified meeting and greeting locations will actually be referred to as “sightings” of characters This is what you’ll see on Disney park maps and the My Disney Experience app starting November 12 as well.
We saw the change in the pages of Mickey Mouse at the City Square Theater…
… i Cinderella…
… i Tiana at Princess Fairytale Hall and Magic Kingdom.
In addition, the name change was also in the pages of Minnie Mouse and Red Carpet Dreams…
… i Disney Junior Pals at Animation Courtyard at Disney Studios in Hollywood.
So far, the confirmed characters that come together include:
- Disney Junior Pals at Animation Courtyard
- Minnie Mouse and Red Carpet Dreams
- Mickey Mouse at the Town Square Theater
- Cinderella and Elena at Princess Fairytale Hall
- Rapunzel and Tiana at Princess Fairytale Hall
We noticed it too Disney’s website for the location of Anna and Elsa (Royal Sommerhus) has been updated with the new “vision” language. However, Disney has not confirmed whether the two princesses will meet again soon at EPCOT.
Of course, we’ll keep you posted on when more characters return to greet Disney World guests. And in the meantime, stay tuned to All Ears for more information on the latest Disney news and entertainment.
