Since March 2020, the Disney Parks have looked quite different. As the Parks experienced an extended closure, many Guests wondered how the Disney magic would return. With many health and safety measures in place, the Parks did reopen. Over the past several months, the Disney Parks has gradually brought back our favorite Disney experiences.

When Disney recently announced the return of character meets, we learned of a few modifications. First, these would not be up close meets where you can get an autograph and hug them. Instead of calling this a character meet, Disney has changed all descriptions on the website to “sighting.”
