Disney World has officially reopened, and guests will be able to see some of their favorite characters again in the parks!
Although we might not be able to hug our friends when we see them, the Character Cavalcades showcase Disney characters as they wave to guests from floats, motorcades, trolleys, and more!
While the Character Cavalcades will be showing during different times, these are all the places you’ll be able to stop and smile at your friends when you’re back in the Most Magical Place on Earth.
The Royal Princess Processional will be happening multiple times throughout the day with the princesses like Cinderella, Aurora, Snow White, Belle, Ariel, and Jasmine on a castle float…
…as well as Rapunzel and Tiana following on a gazebo float.
Merida leads the way on her trusty steed Angus as the princesses make their way down Main Street.
The Mickey and Friends Cavalcade will also appear throughout the day as Mickey, Minnie, and their friends wear their 90th anniversary costumes during their trip down Magic Kingdom’s parade route.
Anastasia and Drizella can be spotted in Fantasyland from the balcony of Cinderella Castle…
…as well as different character appearances throughout the parks, like Stitch and Buzz in Tomorrowland and Jack Sparrow near Pirates of the Caribbean.
In Frontierland, we spotted Goofy’s Character Cavalcade…
…along with some Country Bears from up above!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Donald’s Dino Boat Bash will make its way from DinoLand U.S.A. to the Discovery River as Donald, Daisy, and Launchpad McQuack as they jam out on their party boat in Animal Kingdom. However, yesterday we spotted Chip, Dale, and Goofy instead!
You can also find Timon and Rafiki or Pocahontas and Meeko setting sail on the waterways on the Discovery River Character Cruise…
…with the Discovery Island Drummers keeping up that Disney energy on the shores of Animal Kingdom.
Additionally, Pocahontas and Meeko will occasionally make their way around the river!
You can spot Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, and Goofy again as they party over in EPCOT during the Mickey and Friends World Tour…
Goofy leads the way with Mickey and Minnie in tow!
…while Elsa and Anna lead a princess processional during the Frozen Promenade that will make its way around the entirety of the World Showcase.
We cannot get over how GORGEOUS Queen Anna’s royal carriage is with all tose ribbons and flowers!
The rest of the princesses were also out to greet everyone with smiles and happy hearts during the Princess Promenade…
…like Aurora, Snow White, Jasmine, and Belle!
Like the other cavalcades we’ve seen, this one will take place throughout the day!
If you’re filled with joy seeing your favorite characters in the parks, so is Joy herself as she twirls around in the grass in EPCOT!
We’re pretty sure that Joy and Molly have a lot in common since they’re so sweet and happy!
Pooh was also out in the courtyard on the hunt for butterflies…
…but he happened to find Molly instead! Don’t they just look like best pals?
If you wander over to the UK Pavilion, you can find two other friends in the gazebo in the garden. Throughout the day, Alice will make an appearance…
…along with Mary Poppins (who is sipping on some afternoon tea)!
Over at the Garden Grill, you can find one of the only character experiences in the parks! Chip and Dale are ready to make some laughs….
…while Mickey and Pluto look like absolute sweethearts! Guests visiting the restaurant will sit on one side of the seating area, while the other is blocked off for the characters only.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
The Pixar characters are out to play during the Pixar Pals Motorcade that will feature the Incredibles and Toy Story characters as they drive down Hollywood Boulevard. We couldn’t help but jam out as the Green Army Men drummed during their march…
…followed by Woody and Jessie (ready for a square dance probably)…
…and Buzz Lightyear in his “space cruiser.” We love you, Buzz!
Close by, the Incredibles are ready to leap into action as they greet guests in their super hero outfits!
And, you can even say hello to the woman behind those fabulous suits as Edna Mode rolls down Hollywood Boulevard. Do you think Edna would make us a new outfit to wear in the parks??
Sulley also seems very excited to welcome everyone (and he probably could fill some of those Monsters, Inc. canisters with our laughter during the parade)!
The Disney Junior Stars Motorcade will also join them with Fancy Nancy, Doc McStuffins, and Vampirina in colorful custom convertibles and high-energy music.
Vampirina looks about ready to take flight into the night (and we are kind of OBSESSED with her car)…
…while Doc McStuffins wants everyone to know that she can’t wait to take care of all your pets and plushes again!
Plus, you can even spot classic characters out during the Mickey and Friends Motorcade! Mickey is wearing a classic outfit as he chills out on the back of his FABULOUS car…
…followed by Minnie in her classic dress with a car decked out in polka dots, flowers, and lace (how fitting)!
You can even see friends like Pluto…
…and Chip and Dale along the way too as they welcome everyone back to Hollywood Studios!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will also be bringing rebels back to Batuu on platforms above the garage in the Black Spire Station or the Millennium Falcon’s spaceport.
You can find characters like Rey, Chewbacca, Vi Moradi, and others as they recruit visitors to join the Resistance.
Obviously, we’re sold on joining if it means we get to hang out with Chewie!
Plus, you can even join the Dark Side when you see Stormtroopers and Kylo Ren at the landing platform at Docking Bay 9 beneath the First Order’s TIE Echelon assault vehicle.
We’ll be taking you with us all week to check out all the motorcades, cavalcades, and more as we make our way through the parks during their re-openings!
