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.

Instagram user @cocoa___alice also captured these amazing shots of Mary and Bert in the park as well.

Another Twitter user @disney_blue11 shared a brief video of Flynn and Rapunzel socializing with Guests in Tokyo Disneyland’s World Bazaar area.

Disney Parks Health and Safety Protocols

It is important to note that The Walt Disney Company is still keeping Guests’ and Cast Members’ safety in mind first and foremost, even as suspended experiences begin to return. All Disney properties are currently still operating at limited capacity with required face masks and temperature checks for all Guests.
