By the reactions we were getting from the characters and Disney photographers there, this was a new idea that they hadn't seen before! Today I'm going to show you how to get your character meet & greet photos signed at Disney Parks!
Ken brought his tablet with him in our backpack (which has a special section for storing a tablet) and whenever we had the chance to meet a character, he would whip out his tablet to take the photo, then ask for a quick signature on the screen with his stylus, right on top of the photo we'd just taken!
Here's a photo of Rapunzel giving us her signature. She was pretty excited to see that we had a "magic mirror". :) I caught Katrina in the bottom of this photo, too. She had just finished getting Rapunzel's signature in her signature book and as you can see from her face, she's pretty thrilled about it! (You can see in the background that the photographer was so intrigued by what we were doing that he wanted to take a photo of it – and he wasn’t the only one who did that!)
Here's the photo we got of Mickey & Minnie with their signatures. I think they turned out so well and what a fun keepsake to have with their signatures right on the photo of them with our kids!
If you're going to try this, you'll want to be prepared by knowing how to take a quick photo with your tablet and then open it in a program that allows you to write with your stylus. These characters are in high demand, so there is usually a line of people just waiting to meet them and get their own photos, so it's nice if you can have things organized on your tablet, to avoid taking up a lot of extra time!
We first took the photo, then quickly opened it in a program called "SketchBook for Tablet" where they were able to sign it. We haven't seen a program yet that will let you take a picture and then edit it directly.
Here's a little collage of some of the photos we ended up with from our trip:
If you're headed to a Disney park, I hope you find this idea helpful! :) If you try it, I'd love for you to tag me on social media when you share your photo! (I'm @raisingmemories on twitter and instagram).
If you're not on your way to Disney just yet, but you know it's on your family's bucket list, then go ahead and pin this post for later! :)
