Walt Disney World reopened in July 2020 after the COVID-19 Pandemic closure with modifications to the entertainment offerings. Traditional entertainment, parades and character meet and greets are suspended. In their place are cavalcades and distanced character greetings. I have separate posts looking at the cavalcades and greetings at the Magic Kingdom as well as Disney’s Hollywood Studios, see links below. In addition to the parks some characters hit the road and were part of the Caravanning Round the World taking an RV to various Disney resorts to greet guests there. At Disney’s Animal Kingdom the characters cruised around the Discovery River on boats as part of a series of flotillas.
At EPCOT these experiences included individual character moments in Future World. As well as Character Cavalcades – Mickey and Friends World Tour & Princess Promenade that take place around World Showcase. Below are some pictures and a video clip taking a look at some of the experiences I encountered during my visit. These experiences do not have an announced/posted schedule.
First up, Winnie the Pooh waving to guests and posing for pictures between Imagination and the Land with a butterfly net.
Mickey and Friends World Tour – World Showcase: Mickey and Minnie Mouse circle World Showcase onboard this car waving to guests as they drive by.
