This is all well and good, but I sincerely hope they don’t think this will replace in-person character meet & greets! That’s what I keep waiting to hear about. I’m not interested in going back until I can get up close and personal with Mickey, Pooh bear and others. To me, it’s the characters that make the magic and seeing the interactions with everyone. That’s my favorite part of Disney!
