    When you meet characters is there anything special you can do... just to joke around with them? Such as bounce for Tigger, or crow for Peter Pan? Wierd question but I'm just giving it a shot :) THE MOM'S PANEL IS AWESOME!

    You can make your interaction with the characters as fun-filled as you want. We often try to make our character interaction a bit more personal. For example, there was a while there when my girls would their Minnie Mouse stuffed toy with them when we'd go to a Minnie Mouse character meal. We have photos of big Minnie holding mini Minnie. Very cute. We have bounced with Tigger and pretended to cry with Eeyore. Of course the princesses always love when girls are wearing matching costumes.

    Some of the most fun we've had is with Chip and Dale and my girls' missing teeth. At some point kids always have the chipmunk grin and the chipmunks seem to notice this often. We've asked various characters to teach us some of their signature moves. We've had Minnie teach us how she giggles (one hand over the lips) and asked the Fairy Godmother how she waves her wand.  We've asked Belle what her favorite book is and asked Cruella deVil what her favorite colors are.

    Really, anything thing you can do to engage the characters will get you a more memorable experience.

    I have to tell you what I'm dying to do ... I haven't seen Prince Charming in a while (well, my own personal Prince Charming is currently stuck in traffic on the George Washington bridge after a long day at the office, but you know that's not who I was talking about), but the next time I do, I'm gonna get that guy to try a shoe on me. Every secret Cinderella needs someone other than the clerk at Nordstroms to give her the Royal slipper treatment at least once in her life, don't you think? :-)
