Character Meals at Walt Disney World Resorts to Continue (With Some Restrictions) Due to Coronavirus Concerns

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

While tomorrow marks the official closure of all Walt Disney World parks, the resort’s numerous hotels and restaurants are expected to remain open throughout the two-week period.

Character meets went on as normal in the parks today, but due to rising concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, character meals at resort restaurants will have new restrictions in place for the safety of guests and Cast Members.

At Storybook Dining in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Dopey might still visit your table, but don’t expect a photo session with Snow White or the Evil Queen while COVID-19 precautions are in place.

All face characters, including princesses, will no longer stop at tables, but instead roam the restaurant in order to keep some sort of distance from guests.

Non-face characters such as Mickey and Minnie (for example, at Chef Mickey’s or Daisy at Cape May Cafe) will continue to meet guests as normal until further notice.

These regulations may change as health advisories are updated with regards to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
