PHOTOS, VIDEO: Mickey Mouse Meet and Greet Returns to Town Square Theater as ‘Character Sighting’ at Magic Kingdom

Traditional character meet-and-greets at Walt Disney World have been suspended since March 2020 due to COVID-19. Characters have been appearing outdoors in cavalcades and special distanced appearances, and indoors at select restaurants. Mickey Mouse is now the first character to return to his dedicated indoor meet-and-greet location for a character “sighting.”
