    I'm going to Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland with my family October 24th and I was wondering if the characters will be signing autographs? I want to make sure I don't buy custom autograph books and set the kids expectations too high.

    Hi there, Courtney! Thanks for returning to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with another great question!

    I am so thrilled that you will be attending Mickey's Halloween Party in just a few short weeks! Meeting characters is one of my daughter's favorite activities at the Disneyland Resort and we just love looking back on all her autographs after we return home. The majority of the characters that appear during Mickey's Halloween Party will sign autographs. These include Jack Skellington and Sally, the Evil Queen, Captain Hook, Dr. Facilier, Cruella, and, of course, Mickey and friends, all the princesses, and other favorites that you can normally meet. The only characters I've encountered (during Halloween Time and otherwise) that don't sign autographs are the characters from Star Wars, Cars characters, Nick Wilde, Judy Hopps, Sully, and Buzz Lightyear. There may be a few other villains that are just too dastardly to sign autographs, but usually a Cast Member will alert you to this while you wait so you can set expectations for your children.

    Another important thing to prepare your kids for is that some of these characters are true villains, so you might want to prepare them to meet some of these devilish foes before you visit. Give them some ideas to break the ice like complimenting The Evil Queen by telling her she is the fairest villain of all or giving Captain Hook your best, "Arrrgh!" My daughter actually thought it was fun to mimic the poses of the villains she met in the pictures we took, scowl and all.

    I hope you and your family have a ghoulishly great time at Mickey's Halloween Party!
