Disney’s newest cruise ship, the Disney Wish, promises all kinds of unique experiences for its passengers. You can visit a lounge that’s straight out of the Star Wars galaxy, take a ride on the first-ever Disney attraction at sea, and have your hair cut at a salon inspired by Tangled! It’s great to know what kinds of places you can visit on the ship, but what about the CHARACTERS you can meet?
There’s almost always something new to check out in Disney World!
Even if you went to Disney World a few weeks ago, odds are, something’s different from when you went! Disney is constantly pumping out new merchandise, food, and more, and it can get pretty hard to keep up! July just started, and there are tons of things coming to Disney World this month, so let’s go through 5 things that will be different!
Is it just us, or does it seem like Disney World is constantly changing?
Of course, that’s not always a bad thing. For example, Disney World recently welcomed back the reimagined Finding Nemo show, the Mickey and Minnie meet and greet at Adventurers Outpost, and the Hoop-De-Doo Musical Revue. But the fun doesn’t stop there, as we’re about to see many more changes around the parks. So, to prepare you for what July holds, we compiled a list of all the things you need to know if you’re visiting Disney World in July!
Disney recently announced the return of Star Wars Launch Bay character meet-and-greets in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and now we have a BIG update!
Beginning on July 17th, guests will once again be able to visit with Darth Vader, BB-8, and Chewbacca! Considering that it’s summer and the Star Wars Launch Bay has air conditioning, we anticipate some looooong lines for the return of these popular characters. But what if you had the option to skip the line??
Do you know what time it is?! We said: do you know what time it is?! No? Well, it’s time for you to sit down, put up those feet, and take a virtual trip to Disney with us for all of the latest news!
If you haven’t been keeping a close eye on Disney news lately, we have some BIG updates for you! We’re talking Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party news, the return of more character meet-and-greets, and so. much. more. So let’s get into our round-up of the biggest Disney news from this week!
Traditional meet and greets have returned to Disney World!
That’s right! You can now meet and greet — and HUG — many characters in the parks again. We’re also seeing more meet and greets return every day — most recently, Mickey and Minnie started greeting guests again at Adventurer’s Outpost in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Now, Minnie will be joining Mickey in another spot to greet guests!
Regular character meet and greets recently returned to Disney World, meaning you can hug your favorite characters again!
We’ve seen many of the meet and greets return, as well as a lot of character dining, but not everything has gone completely back to normal. We’ve also seen the return of parades alongside character cavalcades. In fact, a NEW character cavalcade debuted in Magic Kingdom earlier this year with a ton of fun and unique characters. And now, a VERY popular Disney character is going to join the cavalcade!
There is SO much to be excited about in Disney World right now!
Although summer crowds and heat advisories have arrived, plenty of fan-favorite entertainment options have returned to Disney World recently! We just saw the grand reopening of the reimagined Finding Nemo musical, meet-and-greets continue to return around the parks, plus Minnie Vans are officially coming back at the end of the month (even though they have already returned a bit early)! And today marks the official return of the Minnie and Mickey meet-and-greet at Adventurer’s Outpost in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but there’s another update you need to know about!
Character meet-and-greets have returned to “normal” in many spots around Disney World, but not all of them are back just yet.
There are some meet-and-greet locations and character dining restaurants that aren’t back yet, but as the days go by more and more things are changing in Disney World. Soon a character meet-and-greet spot will be back open in Disney’s Animal Kingdom and we’ve got the details right here!
