Disney has today announced that two of the Magic kingdom's signature indoor meet-and-greet attractions will reopen, beginning with Ariel's Grotto in late January.

Ariel's Grotto in Fantasyland will reopen on January 22, 2023, followed by Enchanted Tales with Belle on February 19, 2023.

Both of the Fantasyland meet and greets did not reopen with the rest of the park following the COVID-19 closure, and are the last of the major character locations to reopen at Magic Kingdom.

Yes. Confirmed. They were also (semi-)regulars at DHS before the pandemic.

But the other M&Gs/sightings are here to stay correct? (Frozone, Edna, etc)

Kind of random but Mary Poppins was doing sighting in Hollywood Studios. She was behind the fence on Hollywood Blvd but thought it was random as I haven’t recalled seeing her out before at the studios

If only the incredibles characters met in, you know, their themed subland that just sits empty

As great as this is, and it really is awesome (if long overdue for this park), why are the Incredibles not in the mini-land built for them? That dead alley is just begging for some activation.
