What Unique Things Can I Have Characters Autograph at the Disney Parks?



One of my favorite, and one of the most magical, parts of a Disney vacation is meeting your favorite characters from the screen in real life. Character photos and autographs are a great keepsake and something that you can look back when you’ve got a case of the Disney blues. The autograph books that you can buy at the parks and from the Disney Store are great, but if you want to bring home something more unique and special we have some ideas for you!

Here are 10 unique things to get autographed at the Parks or on your Disney Cruise:

  • Homemade Autograph Books – I know, this post is about things other than autograph books, but homemade autograph books are different than the standard ones that you can buy. Making your own autograph book offers you the chance to be able to get creative. Set your crafty side free and design something that is truly unique and that only you own.
  • Photo Mats – What a better way to display your autographs than along with a memorable photo from your trip!
  • Pillowcases – Not only are pillow cases light weight and easy to carry around the parks with you, but they are one of the last things that you see before you go to bed at night. An autographed pillowcase is sure to bring you sweet Disney dreams.
  • Books – Books like the Junior Encyclopedia of Animated Characters offer a unique opportunity for autograph seekers. Each character can sign the page that is all about them!
  • Collectibles – The definition of collectibles can be different for every person. It really depends on what you love! Do you collect Vinylmation? Have characters sign a blank one. Do you collect baseballs? I personally think that a Disney autographed baseball would look amazing on display. Talk about the ultimate World Series team!
  • Wall Letters – Available in lots of different mediums, wall letters are a great way to display character autographs. Purchase, or make, a letter that represents the family name or maybe even one for the first letter of each child’s names. When you get home from your trip display it proudly in your child’s room or for the family room in a living room or family room so that everyone can see it.
  • Ornaments – Flat wooden or felt ornaments would be best. Use one ornament per one or two characters and when it comes time to put up you Christmas tree each year you’ll look back and remember your Disney vacation.
  • Story BooksGolden Books or other thin and easily transportable story books provide a great place for autographs. To make it extra special only have the characters that are in, or related to, each story book sign that book.
  • Fabric Squares – Like pillowcases fabric squares are easy to transport and don’t take up a lot of space. The number of characters that sign each square is up to you and the size of the square. When you return home from your trip break out you crafty side and turn your squares into a quilt!
  • Photo Books – If you visit the parks a lot compile all of your past character photos and create a photo book with each character getting their own page. When you meet characters again have them sign their page!

  1. We had Mickey Mouse sign a Disney dollar on our last visit, the kids thought that was cool but the photographer told me that they have been told that if they see it being done to be sure to let people know if they have a character sign them they can not be spent in the park! We didn’t plan on spending it after it was signed if course but still good to know!
