Walt Disney World Announces Character Processions Replacing Standard Entertainment Offerings

When Walt Disney World reopens next month, it will be without some of its most beloved elements: parades, nighttime spectaculars, and character meet and greets.

22 021720 DHS TSL Characters 1

Replacing meet-and-greets are character “processions,” which will allow guests to see characters without interacting with them one-on-one.

From Walt Disney World’s website:

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.

  1. I’m good with that, it’s always exciting seeing the characters walking about!

  2. no nighttime spectaculars!? no parades!? no meet and greets?! oh wow! looks like Walt Disney World will NEVER be the same! -_-*

  3. So they’re replacing parades and other events that would draw crowds with…parades and events that would draw crowds. LOGIC!
     

  4. I understand WHY they’re doing it, but I’ll return why those offerings are back in place. It just doesn’t seem like going to Disney with a face covering on all day and half the night seems like it would be fun. Plus, I’m pretty sure park prices are the same and all of the “fun” stuff (at least to me), is missing.
