Hugs are back at Disney Parks

After two years of greeting from a distance, kids can hug Disney Parks characters again.

Mickey Mouse and Friends are resuming guest encounters at Disneyland, Walt Disney World Resorts and on Disney Cruise Lines this week, Walt Disney Co said in a blog post recently.

Although the parks reopened in Florida in July 2020 and in California in April 2021, the characters stayed away from fans rather than walking around for autographs and photos. As US states began lifting Covid-19 masking, testing and vaccination requirements, Disney said it would bring back in-person greetings, meals and other events in phases this spring.

Park revenue doubled in the first quarter from pandemic lows, according to Disney’s Feb. 9 earnings report. The company has also pledged to diversify its characters by pledging that half will come from underrepresented groups, starting this year.Bloomberg
