    Hello! My 16 year old daughter is an artist and wants to draw certain characters that she wants to meet. Would the character actors be allowed to accept them?

    Hey there Thea, and welcome to planDisney. Your daughter sounds like a future Imagineer or artist with Disney Animation or Pixar. Please make sure she keeps her skills handy as those jobs are highly competitive and come with magical benefits.

    Disney Characters and Cast Members are not permitted to accept gifts of any kind as a safety precaution. I know these are special bespoke items that are drawn from her heart but there is a better way to give a gift that will help out the Character or Cast Member. This bit of pixie dust helps them soar to greater levels in the Company. When you submit a Cast Compliment through the My Disney Experience Mobile App it goes right to the department lead and in the case of Disney Disney Characters, directly to Mickey Mouse. Here is how to gift this magic:

    • Open the My Disney Experience Mobile App.
    • Click on the Feature Menu (☰) on the lower right.
    • When the next screen opens, scroll down past all the icons to the section where "Cast Compliment" is listed.
    • Tap on it and follow the prompts. Make sure to ask for the Cast Member's name and where they are from (found on their name tag).

    Thea, you know what would be truly enchanting? Your daughter should create a custom sketch autograph book for herself or a loved one by drawing the Disney Characters and having the characters sign the drawing. That would be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and a unique keepsake to cherish forever. I am here to help if you have any further questions. Please feel free to write me back directly.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
