Disney Character Meet and Greet – part 3
……. . continuing on from my first and second articles regarding Disney Character Meet and Greets:
If you would like an item of clothing signed, please make sure that it is not being worn at the time. They will not sign it otherwise.
When the greeter tells you that Mickey will be right back, they really mean this. So please do not cause a fuss because you have been waiting 15 minutes or so. They will be straight back!
Unfortunately, if you ask for a picture with more than one character at one time, the answer will probably be no. The reason for this is that once someone asks this question everyone else in the near vicinity will want one.
Now for all you curious parents out there. Please do not ask the characters questions! They will not answer them. Neither will the greeters who accompany the characters throughout the parks. Young children do not realise that there is a person inside the costumes and it spoils the magic for them if adults are asking such questions as “Is it hot in there? ” I will attempt to answer the most commonly asked questions below:
Is it hot in there?
Yes, it is! Some guests are under the misconception that each character has their own personal air conditioning unit inside their costume, they really don’t. The characters will only appear for short times, twenty to forty-five minutes at the most. It all depends on the temperature for that day.
Is it heavy?
This of course depends on which character it is. The Beast from Beauty and the Beast has a huge costume which will weigh a lot heavier than say, Donald Duck who is a lot smaller. If it looks heavy, then it probably is!
Are you a boy or a girl in there?
Again, look at the size of the character. If it is Goofy it is more than likely to be male, Donald Duck a girl.
The most important thing when meeting the characters is to have fun.
What we used to do when our children were collecting autographs, was to make sure that each character signed on a clean page leaving the adjacent page empty. When we got home, with their help, we would stick the photograph of the same character on the opposite page. It was great fun to do on a rainy day and brought back lots of happy memories. It still does twenty years later!
