Although character meet and greets will not happen when Disneyland Resort and Disney California Adventure reopen, you will get to see characters in new and interesting ways.


There will be surprise appearances of characters on Disneyland’s Main Street, U.S.A., which could potentially be similar to the character cavalcades we’ve seen at Disney World. At Disney California Adventure’s Pixar Pier, Disney promises “playful interactions” with characters. Disney stated: “Beloved characters will pop up in new ways and sometimes in unexpected places as they remain mindful of physical distancing.”
