Fun with Disney Characters: What to Say at Meet n Greets

No matter your age – meeting the characters at Walt Disney World can be magical. It can be super fun to meet and collect autographs, but don’t be shy! Ask questions and often you can really get them to interact for a good time. I encourage my kids to do this all the time and I’ve tried some too! Everyone needs a little extra during a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth!
