One of the best aspects about Walt Disney World, and any of the Disney Parks around the globe are the characters. When Guests come to Disney, they want to feel like they have been sucked into a world of fantasy, and for many, the best way to do this is to walk into the movies that they grew up watching.
Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, entertainment has been one of the slower things to return to the Parks, but luckily, we are starting to see more and more come back. Two of the best characters that Magic Kingdom Guests may sometimes experience are Anastasia and Drizella from Cinderella (1950). The two are often on a mic so that their interactions can be heard by all!
In the TikTok below, Keith Lapinig (@keithlapinig) posted a video of Anastasia and Drizella interacting with a family, and their chemistry is outstanding! We can see that from the posting date of this TikTok, the sisters were standing far apart due to social distancing protocols, but that did not stop their banter.
In the video, Anastasia is speaking with Guests who recount a story about how one child cried and got what they wanted. When Anastasia caught Drizella up on the situation, they both noted that it reminded them of someone specific, and in unison, the sisters shouted “Cinderella!”.
Take a look at the full video below:

Considering these interactions are all strictly improvised, the timing and unison displayed in the video is actually very impressive and made for a fantastic interaction with the Guests!
The sisters went on to talk about how Cinderella is teaching children to cry to get what they want, and both are very in character while they trash their step-sister. Anastasia and Drizella do not have set times to meet, but when they do come out, they are often found in Fantasyland behind the castle.
