Character Meet & Greets

Disney 'Four Parks - One World' Autograph Book
When it comes to Disney, one of the most exciting activities is the opportunity to meet your favorite Walt Disney characters from television and the movies. My sister and I always had a blast growing-up trying to get as many signatures and track down the hard-to-find characters. Character meet and greets also make for great photo opportunities not only for kids, but for the entire family. Growing-up, my family actually used a character photo with Buzz and Woody as our Christmas card photo one year! My wife and I really like the Disney 'Four Parks - One World' Autograph Book. While it does not have as many pages for character autographs as other books do, every other page has a photo sleeve, so you can inser the corresponding character photo next to the character's autograph. Don't forget to bring along a good pen or two (we recommend Sharpie markers). If you're worried about young children being afraid of the characters, we've had a number of friends who have said watching the Disney Planning DVD and talking about the characters as well as starting-off wiht the more human chraracter (e.g., princesses) helps the kids to warm-up to the idea of being near the characters. Also try turning it into a fun game for the family to try and collect as many signatures as possible - always worked for us!
