    I love meeting the characters at WDW, especially Goofy! I was wondering do you have any cool ideas on what to ask them to autograph? I will be 27 when I go to WDW next summer and want something fun and cool instead of just a autograph book. Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer -

    Lots of guests ask characters to sign unique items. I love seeing character autographs in unusual places!

    You should first know that characters will not sign anything that you're actually wearing. For example, they'll be happy to sign a shirt, but they won't do it if you're wearing the shirt. Also, if you want a character to sign a non-traditional item, you should be prepared to make this easy for the character. For example, if you want the character to sign on fabric, have a hard backing available for the character's pen to press against. An example of this might be having a hard book or clipboard on hand against which a character could sign a tee. Also think about whether you'll want the character to use any unique writing tools like fabric pens or Sharpies.

    Some items I've heard of the characters signing include:

    - Tee shirts
    - Baseball caps
    - Baseballs
    - Footballs
    - Ear hats (the light pink Minnie ones work well for this)
    - Photo frames or mattes
    - Quilt squares
    - Vinylmation figures
    - Plush toys
    - Calendars
    - Post cards
    - Pillow cases
    - Leggings
    - Shoes such as Toms or Keds
    - Canvas bags
    - Bike helmets
    - Plain phone or tablet cases

    Just use your imagination to think about what items are useful or important in your life and ask a character to sign that. You'll have a souvenir like no one else. How fun is that!

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions. We're happy to help.
