    Hello Allison! I just read your answer to a previous question regarding having characters sign a photo mat. What a great idea! Will they sign a mat as well as my two kids autograph books? Would love to steal the idea!

    Hi Emmalea,

    Thank you for your question.  Love the spelling of your name - cool!  I get excited when Guests share ideas and inspire others - that's one thing that makes the Disney family so special. I may just have to use that idea myself.

    There are no rules as to the number of autographs the characters will sign so I don't think it would be a problem. If your kids are old enough, let them be in charge of their own autograph books and have them open and ready with a pen for the characters to sign. That would free you up to be in charge of the photo mat which would make it more time efficient when its your turn with the characters.

    Once you've taken care of the "business" end of your meet and greet, you can then have fun taking photos.  If you have an additional pair of hands with you, have them make sure the cameras are ready. Don't forget to take photos while getting the autographs - these can turn out really cute.

    Oh - one other suggestion.  Put your kids' names on the outside and / or on the inside cover of their autograph books.  I've had a couple of really pixie dusted moments when some of the face characters (i.e., Princesses - yes my boys love the princesses - they have good taste you know) catch a glimpse of it and call them by name. The look on their faces is priceless.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
