Disney Character Meet and Greet – part 2
…………. continuing on from my first article about Disney Character Meet and Greets:
If your child wants to specifically meet one of the characters, you can call in at Guest Relations
in any of the parks or City Hall
at Magic Kingdom and ask them where this particular character will be appearing that day.
Ask the Cast Members
in the parks where and when your favourite characters will be appearing. They have a special telephone number which they will call for you to find out.
If you are visiting Animal Kingdom early in the morning, walk over to Camp Minnie-Mickey
as this is the least crowded place and time to meet your favourite characters. Everybody else will be heading over to the Safari ride or Expedition Everest.
So you’ve found the characters, what do you do now? If you know what time they will be appearing, try to arrive a little earlier
to avoid having to wait in a long line. Make sure your children have their autograph books open
and their pens at the ready
. Have your camera to hand so that you don’t have to ask the character to wait whilst you have to fish about in your rucksack. They won’t be too pleased with you and neither will all the other parents and children waiting in line.
A good tip, that was give to us by a cast member, is to put your name, address and telephone number at the front of the autograph book. We were told that numerous books were found throughout the park each day and that this was a good way of getting them back to their owners.
Some of the best photographs of our children meeting the characters haven’t involved everyone posing for the camera. Try and capture that special moment when your child stares up in wonder at their favourite character or when Mickey pats your child’s head or Minnie blows them a kiss.
The characters cannot hold your child whilst you take their photographs, so please don’t waste your time asking them. Due to their size it really wouldn’t be very practical for a character to be holding a six-month old baby or a struggling two-year old in case they dropped them! However, we have numerous photos where they have bent down or sat on the floor so that our children can sit on their laps.
