If you're heading down to Walt Disney World, especially with kids (or not...), I highly recommend picking up a Disney autograph book. These are a wonderful way to keep Disney memories after your trip is over.
One of the most fun parts of our trips is searching out some of our daughter's favorite characters, getting their autographs, and snapping pictures with them. The little ones love it. Adults do too, especially if you're going to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party or Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, where you can come across some characters you wouldn't normally see. Some Disney lovers go to these parties specifically to get these hard-to-get autographs.
There are different types of autographs books: A basic Autograph book which doesn't include photo sleeve pages for pictures (although I prefer the ones with the photo sleeves so that you can have the autograph on one side, and the picture on the other); the Disney Princess Autographs & Photographs Book which do include the photo sleeves for those treasured pictures; and yearly autograph books that come with a gel pen and also have the picture sleeve pages that I favor.
I've also recently come across the Guide to the Magic Deluxe Autograph & Sticker Book by Tim Foster, the founder of Celebrations Magazine (see my review of Celebrations Magazine dated January 25, 2015). This book is more than just an autograph book - it contains autograph tips, a character checklist, cast member autograph pages, character stickers, character fun facts, etc. It is a ton of fun, especially if your child really enjoys submersing herself/himself in Disney.
I highly recommend purchasing an autograph book for your trip - it makes the trip a lot more fun, and you'll love seeing the joy on your child's face when they get their favorite characters' autographs. The autographs are for your child, the memory of their joy is for you. It's a win-win.
Until next time, remember to keep the Mouse in your house.
