Many times I have mentioned that meeting characters is one of my favorite experiences at Disney World. For years I just met with characters and interacted with them. Then about a year ago I decided to start getting autographs from the characters. Since the parks are always getting new characters and sometimes retiring others I wanted a way to remember the moment with something other than a picture. Then I got thinking, What Will Disney Characters Autograph? I did some research and asked plenty of cast members and I am going to share with you lots of ideas so you can find the option that is perfect for your family!
What Will Disney Characters Autograph?
T-shirts, Sweatshirts, Jackets. You can’t be wearing the item but you can bring one. Make sure to also bring a piece of cardboard or a clipboard so the character has a something sturdy to sign on.
Disney Junior Encyclopedia of Animated Characters. Have the character sign on their page. you can have brand new characters sign in the back.
Plates. I did this plate for my birthday breakfast at Akershus!
Ornaments. I use see-through plastic ones.
Photo Frame Mats
Tree Skirts– This is a project I am working on. Once filled I am going to embroider over the signatures.
Halloween Candy Buckets- This is great for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, when there are more villains out.
A 3 ring Binder. Have the characters sign the outside and inside. Great for students and teachers!
Quilting squares- After the trip, combine the autograph squares with cute Disney material to make a blanket that will be cherished forever!
3×5 or 5×7 index cards to scrapbook with the photos. Characters who don’t sign autographs usually hand out cards.
Park Maps, especially the high-quality ones you order from Disney
Big Mickey Gloves, they have them available in the parks.
Aprons, blank light colored ones. I love this cute White Ruffled Apron from Flirty Aprons, it is perfect!
Handmade autograph Books
A baseball, basketball, soccer ball, football
Tips for Collecting Disney Character Autographs:
- Permanent markers work best on cloth, canvas, autograph books, and plastic. Easy to open clickable Sharpies are what the characters and their handlers prefer.
- For anything plastic like ornaments, lunchboxes, etc. cover the autograph with modpodge or clear nail polish to prevent it rubbing off.
- For plain white ceramics like plates and coffee cups (get from the Dollar Tree) bake at 350 degrees. Put the item in the oven before the preheat time and remove once completely cool.
