Good news! Character hugs are back and we could not be more excited!
We can’t wait to hug Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, and all the princesses on our next Walt Disney World Vacation! One of our absolute favorite parts of Walt Disney World is giving hugs to our favorite characters.
Many people LOVE collecting autographs from Mickey and the gang, as well as any other character (Disney princesses, anyone?!) they happen to meet! All the characters do autographs, and kids have loved collecting them over the last 50 years.
If you have a younger child and this is their first time at Disney, autograph books are a great way to help break the ice when your child meets a character. Sometimes kids get nervous! Handing Elsa, Donald Duck, or Chewbacca an autograph book is an easy way for kids to interact with the characters.
We have rounded up some of our favorite Disney autograph books. We have also given you some other unique ideas to collect autographs with – we think you will love these!
