    As of August 2022, have characters started signing autographs again? How many characters can we get autographs from?

    Hiya, Marrin! We are so happy you found your way to planDisney with your question. Oh boy, do I have some great news for you! Character Greetings are back in full swing at the Disneyland Resort, so get ready for some high-fives, hugs, and autographs with Mickey, Minnie, and all their friends!

    Collecting signatures is a time-honored tradition for any Mouseketeers (young and young at heart!) during a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! I'm so happy this is back. I have the best memories from my childhood interacting with characters in this way, and it's so fun seeing my kiddos have the same experience when we hit the parks. While most characters will offer autographs, you might want to check with their Cast Member friend before joining the queue to see if that's something they are offering that day. If this is a deal breaker, then you would save some time by skipping that particular meet-and-greet. 

    If meeting characters is a top priority, I would head into the Disneyland Mobile App on the morning of your park day. There is so much information here to help you plan, and there is a map that will identify which characters will be out and about and the times they are available for greetings. This will help you determine how many you can meet that day! Once you open the app, tap on the pinpoint icon along the bottom navigation bar. This will pull up the park map. At the top, click the arrow to view the drop-down menu and select "Characters". I prefer to view this as a list rather than as pinpoints on the map, so I like to select "Show List" in the top right-hand corner. Here, you will see the list of characters visiting Disneyland that day. If you tap into each, you can see their location and the times they are available for greetings. This is a great way to plan out your strategy for the day!

    Don't forget that if you have added Genie+ to your ticket, you will have the pixie-dusted perk of accessing unlimited digital downloads of all the Disney PhotoPass Photos taken that day. This is a great way to make those character interactions and memories last a lifetime! 

    Marrin, I hope this answered your question! Feel free to reach back out to us if you need any more information. We are always here for you at planDisney!

    Magic awaits!
