Give big character hugs

This is a tough change for cast members and guests alike: Costumed characters, including Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, all the princesses, and the rest of the Disney gang can no longer physically interact with guests, meaning no big bear hugs or even high fives. But all is not lost. With traditional parades and character greetings on hiatus to promote physical distancing among guests, says Disney, theme park character experiences have been reimagined in new and different ways, including cavalcades (mini surprise parades) down Main Street, at Magic Kingdom, to characters sailing down Discovery River at Animal Kingdom. So get ready to take a socially distanced selfie and snap your favorite character from afar. This is what it felt like to be at Disney world opening week.
