One of the MOST popular activities to do when you FINALLY get to meet your favorite character is getting their autograph! There are many popular and unique items you can have your fav sign, but one of the most popular is the autograph book sold by the Disney company.
There are many different themed books you can purchase. Princesses, destination specific, ie Walt Disney World or Disneyland, Minnie Mouse, just to name a few.
If you would like to have the purchase of your book done prior to arriving, you can purchase ahead of time via the shopDisney store. Ordering before your vacation, will leave you with one less thing that you will need to do before having fun on the day of arrival.
These can also be purchased them once you arrive in Disney at the resort store and at all the parks.
You can use any pen for the autograph books but it is easier to for the characters to use a thick/large pen. They do sell large pens for the autograph books. We find that a sharpie works best, but you will need to bring one from home as these are not sold in the parks.
If you’re surprising your kiddos with the Disney vacation, presenting them with their autograph book prior to leaving or as a gift is a great way to share the surprise! Imagine the excitement when your kids come into the room and there are a couple of autograph books and Mickey ear hats on the counter. Guess where we are going???? *cue the screams of excitement*
If you choose to wait to purchase AT the resort: Be sure to get one right away because you never know when you will need them!
If you use a sharpie for the character to sign with, bring different colored sharpies with you! As each character signs, give them a different color!
