    Was wondering the the new "Wacky" pens that they are selling on the Disney online store are big enough for the characters to be able to handle for autographs? Or will I need to look elsewhere? My daugher had a large pen from our last trip but it's lost.

    Hi James,

    I am thinking you are asking about the fun and colorful Kooky pens that my kids just love. The pens tend to be fat and stubby with a colorful nylon pom pom at the top of it and come in numerous Disney pal designs.

    This is just a guess but I would imagine most of the Disney pals would be able to use these pens to sign autographs. While they are short, they are quite fat and should be relatively easy to grab. The characters with large gloved hands mat have a hard time gripping the pen but often these pals come prepared and bring their own pens that are easier for them to hold. Personally we like to use fine Sharpie pens in various colors but I have seen a large variety of pens and markers handed to the characters and they always seem to be able to manage just fine.

    Have a great time and hope you get a ton of great autographs!
