One of the more popular limited-time offerings at the Magic Kingdom since reopening has been the mini character cavalcades that allow guests to see their favorite characters from a distance. And now it looks like Disney's Hollywood Studios will be getting some of these special cavalcades, including the following: 

  • Mickey and Friends Motorcade highlights Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and their friends Chip ‘n’ Dale, accompanied by a bouncy musical score inspired by Disney cartoon shorts.
  • The Pixar Pals Motorcade takes the Incredibles, Woody, Buzz Lightyear and others down the avenue, waving to their fans to the beat of the Green Army Drum Corps.
  • The Disney Junior Stars Motorcade brings favorite TV friends Fancy Nancy, Doc McStuffins and Vampirina to Hollywood Boulevard. 

These unscheduled cavalcades will be unscheduled and happen intermittently throughout the day

Recently went to WDW and would NOT have gone if they had been at full capacity. In response to the people who say masks should be an individual choice, my mask protects you. Why should I not get the same protection from you? Also, to the person who stated only high priced resorts are open. Really? All Disney resorts are expensive. However, in August and September both, we stayed at Pop Century which is a Value resort.
