Disney World suspends all character meals for time being as they prepare for a park life with social distancing in place.
Character integrity is important to Disney and thus their face characters will not be wearing masks. Due to this change and the limited capacity for character meals, Disney World will suspend these experiences for the time being.
We don’t know more information at this time other than they won’t be available when the park first opens.
Disney World has also cancelled the offering of the Disney Dining Plan, which was a huge value for families that enjoy dining with characters.
Character dining has resumed in some capacity at Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, so we might see Walt Disney World resume a type of character dining experience as they figure out all the logistics.
