When Disney theme parks around the world reopened following their temporary COVID-19 closure, one of the biggest changes was how Guests could interact with beloved Disney Parks characters.
Around the world — from Shanghai Disneyland to Disneyland Paris to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida — there was no more hugging Mickey and Minnie and no more face character interactions at all in most cases.
Face characters, as many Disney Park goers know, are those who resemble human beings such as the Disney Princesses, Princes, and characters from live-action films like Mary Poppins.
Now, however, Tokyo Disneyland Guests have noticed that some face characters have returned to the parks — Mary Poppins, Bert, Princess Rapunzel, and Flynn Rider have all been spotted at Japan’s only Disney theme park!
Twitter user @donadona1204 shared these fun pictures of Bert and Mary Poppins interacting with Tokyo Disneyland visitors from a safe social distance.

There have been a few other face character appearances at Disney Parks recently, including various Princesses at Disney World. This is exciting news for those who are hoping to see more and more experiences return to Disney theme parks everywhere.
