DISNEY lovers can reconnect with their favorite characters when hugs and meet and greets will return.
Hugs have been banned since Disney World reopened in 2020 following the first wave of the pandemic, and character encounters and greetings have all been socially distanced.
However, that is set to change as there are plans to relax Covid rules at the theme park and on US Disney cruises.
tiktok account @disneyparks shared a video yesterday of the rope separating guests from meeting Mickey being removed while Mickey was performing a hug action.
The video was captioned, “The Moment We’ve Been Waiting For.”
A date has not yet been announced for when hugs and meet and greets will return, however Walt Disney World news today speculated it could be around April 17th.
Sun Online Travel has been in touch Disney World for a comment.
Hugs have already returned to Disneyland Paris and meet and greets with characters will no longer need to be socially distanced starting tomorrow.
Disneyland Paris turns 30 this year and the birthday celebrations started earlier this month.
Before that, a new daytime show takes place every day newly renovated Sleeping Beauty Castle with more than 30 Disney characters and dancers on colorful floats.
Meanwhile, Mickey, Minnie, Donald and all their friends show off shiny new costumes created specifically for the milestone.
