VIDEO: See How Character Meet and Greets Have Changed With Shanghai Disney Reopening
Shanghai Disneyland reopened last night (May 11th for those in China). We are excited to see one Disney park reopening but at the same time, we know that some changes are going to be implemented to keep Guests and Cast Members safe. One of the big changes we will see is when it comes to entertainment options such as character meet and greets.
Twitter user @gourmetdyy has a video of how Cast Members are handling the character meet and greets. The characters still come out, but they are kept at a safe distance and just wave to the guests and pose for pictures.

In the first phase of Shanghai Disneyland’s reopening, Disney character meet and greet entertainment will be suspended as we currently know them.
This updated and temporary entertainment option at Shanghai Disneyland will not allow for one-on-one interaction or close-up photos. But, to me, something is better than nothing! I would love to see Mickey and Minnie waving at from 6 feet away at this point!
I think we will also see something similar at Walt Disney World and Disneyland when they reopen so Guests can safely see their favorite characters even if from a short distance at least in the first phase of reopening.
Disney has not confirmed these entertainment changes for Walt Disney World and/or Disneyland. But, it should be used as a guide as to what the domestic parks will look like once that reopens. And, remember, these experiences will come back when it is safe to do so!
