Many of our touring plans do include character greeting time in their programs. Is there some way to find out in advance of my vacation what time the scheduled character greetings will happen?
Bear in mind that this is not an official Disney source and that the information is subject to change, but generally it is quite accurate. This site does not track spontaneous character greeting appearances. Will my child be afraid of the characters?
Most kids are unfazed by meeting Mickey and the gang, while others are reduced to a quivering ball of tears any time they get within 10 feet of a giant mouse. If you have some concern that your child might exhibit character fear behaviors, try finding a costumed character in your hometown perhaps at a birthday party or Chuck E.
Cheese type venue to practice with. I know my child is afraid of the characters. Should I cancel my trip? At no point will a character pop out of nowhere to surprise your child.
The characters tend to stay in a fixed location and are visible from quite a distance. Is there anything I can do if my child is afraid of the characters? Like I said, if you know you have a fearful child, you can simply stay away from the characters.
If you want to push the envelope a little, try taking baby steps toward character interaction. Perhaps ask the child to wave at the character from a distance, or stick with the somewhat less intimidating face characters rather than fur characters.
You will see lots of kids in the parks toting around autograph books.
When the kids meet characters, they hand them the autograph book and the character signs it. If you and your kids are content to skip this part of the process, then by all means do so. One bit of advice … if you do end up collecting character autographs, but sure to write your name and contact information in the front of the book. This will greatly facilitate the return process if you accidentally lose the book. Do I need a special pen to get an autograph from a character? The characters are often wearing bulky gloves which make gripping a delicate writing tool a bit of a challenge.
It can be helpful if you provide them with a somewhat chunky pen, maybe something along the lines of the basic elementary school Crayola marker. The characters will make do with whatever you have on hand — regular pen, pencil, crayon, — it all works. Some characters, notably Buzz Lightyear, will mark your autograph book with a special stamp rather than a signature. Not surprisingly, Lightning and Mater are in the non-autograph-signers club. How much do autograph books cost?
Where can I buy them? There are several styles of Disney autograph books for sale in the parks and resorts. Several versions of Disney autograph books are also sold on DisneyStore. That being said, there is absolutely no requirement that you use a Disney branded autograph book when you get signatures.
Do I have to get autographs in an autograph book? The characters will sign almost anything. You should know that characters will not sign any clothing while you are wearing it. Nor will they sign any part of a human body. If you will be asking characters to sign something non-traditional, be sure to give them a mechanism so they can do this easily.
For example, if you want a character to sign a tee shirt, bring a clipboard or piece of sturdy cardboard to provide a backing surface for them to lean on. Well, even Mickey needs a potty break from time to time. Look for semi-official looking people with blue shirts and walkie-talkies or headsets. Be aware that characters appearing outdoors on hot days will take much more frequent breaks than those hanging out in air-conditioned digs.
Are there PhotoPass photographers at the character greeting stations? Some, but by no means all, character greetings have a nearby PhotoPass photographer to capture your memories. They are totally used to doing this and are happy to help.
Do you have any tips for getting a good photo with a character?
Touring Plans contributor and all around photo god Tom Bricker has some great tips for getting better family photos in the Disney parks. Watch the position of the sun. Perhaps you can ask the character to pivot a bit for less glare. Or maybe save character photography or any human photography for times other than mid-day. Your flash will wash out your subject.
Figure out your camera settings and learn how to take a decent indoor picture without using the flash. It matters what you wear. Take a quick glance at the background of your shot. Is there a tree behind little Katie that makes her look like she has horns?
Can this be fixed quickly to make your overall photo more attractive? Can I take more than one photo with a character? Sure, but try to be as efficient as possible.
Meet Disney Pals at the Epcot Character Spot
However, there are some particular favorites that require the group pose plus an individual shot of just one of the girls with the character. Or imagine any other of a thousand unpleasant scenarios that might occur if characters held children.
Victor Estrada on Apr 9, 21 Yep, dissapointing not to see Incredibles 2 on that list. Cars had so many holes in the story it's not funny. It's ok, as long as you don't think about it too much. They have a petrol station, but there's still a diner? What do cars eat at a diner that they can't get at the fuel station? Maybe they eat humans?!?
Talking animals, talking fish, talking robots; all can live in their own world. But talking cars in their own world? Charles on Apr 9, 22 will 3D be the only way we'd be able to watch these films? But I agree with all of you that I don't see a sequel there. Not sure why it's so obvious to all of us that the Incredibles is primed for a sequel but CARS should stay a one-hit?
Holly on Apr 10, 24 Looks like quantity is winning out over quality at Pixar now that corporate whores Disney has taken over. They could do anything, set anywhere, starting any kind of characters and they do a thinly veiled "Incredible Journey" with Hannah Montana?
I dub thee money grubbing whores!
Nice once in a while but I don't need to spend the rest of my life looking like Elton John. Rich Yan on Apr 10, 25 Has anyone seen a picture from Tinkerbell?? It's Tinkerbell and four multiracial fairies with cat eyes? In funny ways, Pixar is like the dominant mate even though it was bought by Disney. I can only vouch for what they're doing because byit would be 10 to 11 years since the release of Toy Story 2 in theaters.
But please, read on. I want to make a comment in regard to the responses of Cars 2, as well as all other films listed in this article. CARS actually seemed too long, it was just several minutes too long. That aspect had the kids fall asleep. The content in the movie that had adults fall asleep was its cheesy "winning isn't everything" storyline.
Give people what they want, but give it to them in an unexpected way. We've just seen this theme and it always ends in a "wa-waaaa" tune. However, I can talk about a potential conflict given the fact that McQueen isn't cocky and over-confident anymore, which was a major important aspect that drove CARS.
What's his turn around this time? It led from the initial conflicts towards the character's inner crisis, bringing him to his lowest low, and to finally his degree change. What could possibly be done now? Hopefully it won't have anything to do with him and Sally getting married like Circle 7 and Disney had planned some time ago.
I also disagree with Pixar pumping out at least 1 film a year. You're just going to end up mass-producing stories that aren't strong or creative. I'm already cringing at the thought of The Bear and the Bow. It really reminds me of the latest Disney films. The "kingdom princess" story has been beaten to death, and I can personally never associate with any of those characters. Who lives like that? At least it won't be a musical I DO like Up's concept.
Hopefully the approach will be a hit instead of just 80 Days Around the World. Toy Story 3 seems like a hit and miss, and I know I'm sounding a little too judgmental already with the aforementioned comments but One thing's for sure. Dev on Apr 11, 27 This post is a very informative look at the upcoming Disney and Pixar schedule, and it caused me to reconsider the landscape of animation today. While it seems like every is looking for the next film to turn into a 3-D masterpiece, I feel what is really being lost in the shuffle is traditional 2-D animation.
Now that nearly every film being announced is being upgraded from computer generated images to 3-dimensional computer generated images, the idea of 2-D films of any type is not even spoken about. While I feel like this advent of 3-D technology can potential push the boundaries of film, it seems to me the technology is moving too fast and without consideration of the artistic consequences.
It seems like since the release of Shrek, studios have forgotten that a animated film cannot be successful if presented in the hand drawn style of classics like Beauty and the Beast and Lion King.
The animated landscape must remain diverse, or else it is bound to become stagnant and bland. While films like Shrek, the Toy Story films and Finding Nemo have made tremendous marks in both the box office and in cinema canon, I'm sure that are few film fans who have seen The Wild, Happily N'ever After and Open Season, let alone heard of them.
This new lush animation style has made every film visually stunning, complete with goofy animal characters and exotic locales, but simply place three random animals with celebrity voices and wacky adventure do not make a film. While the release of The Princess and the Frog is promising for traditional animation, it is the first of its type from Disney's Home on the Range.
The films continue to get flashier, but I fail to believe that they are getting better written, and I feel that while this schedule is promising, its ultimately more of the same. That was terrible character design for the Beast. His face would "melt" every time it was animated. Plus, who isn't sick of musicals and tacky story-lines that we can't associate ourselves with?
Dev on Apr 16, 29 Sounds like a bunch of lame sheep around here. Never Judge a book by its cover all you have is a title and a rough idea about the movie that can and will change. I like to find out for myself before casting doubt onto a studio that has done nothing but impress. As for the quaility vrs quantity thing. If you noticed most movies are being produced by a multitude of ppl. Who will no doubt be working with a team for that movie only.
It is possable to run multiple projects at once. Rocky on Apr 23, 30 Wooow I will wait that! Leallyandy on May 29, 31 I am disapointed.
Maybe I am old fashioned but to me Disney films have been great the way they were. I don't care for the whole 3 D bit. Seeing a 10 minute show is one things, but a whole movie? That's not for me. Last time I checked, that's a very successful theatrical run that does not include home video and all of the consumer products that have created a franchise. What is the new acre land they are creating? What is is expected to open? What is the scheduled date for Cars 2?
Disney has been a technology innovator in animation. The animation technology for Bambi, Snow White, etc. Next gen flat screen TVs will have 3-D capability without glasses. Disney has started a track record with successful 3-D movies. And how about the Hannah Montana 3-D concert movie? Anyway, a lot of numbers but Disney has 5 of the top 6 3-D movies in probably the past 30 years. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt that they may create yet another new theater experience!
Hope" Cars 2" going to Hollywood in Racers! Lightning McQueen will star cars meet ever lots! So Disney is probably telling them to make Cars 2 because it's probably the most popular with smaller children and will sell more at the ox office. Not to metion the merchendice sales! Last I heard Pixar was compleatly opposed to doing sequals. They were kind of pushing themselves with Toy Story 2. So it probably more of Disney wanting Cars 2 then Pixar actually wanting to.
Btw I totally agree to many 3-D movies, I think I'll just start bringing my own to theaters instead of wasting another pair of glasses. Or I'll just steal some nice ones from Toy Story Mania How many kids ages one to ten do you know that watch cars on a daily, yes daily basis.
In my extended family alone I know of at least eight kids that worship it. Dose it not come down to what your children enjoy ultimately. You will be there for the same reason I will be, to see your child happy. If you understood the context of the movie, you might of enjoyed it more.
Plus I am sure all of you hacks will be lined up to fork over hundreds of dollars to Disney just so your kids can go to the new Cars Land in California Adventure, even though you tools hate it so much.
Erik on Jun 26, 36 yes once again im thirty five years old and cars is one of my favorites. I am glad that they are making another one.
Not sure how they will do it but Im pretty sure it will be good. Amanda on Jul 1, 38 Wow so much hate for cars. But once i watched it on tv one day i realized it was not bad.
I would have to put it under nemo for the best pixar movie. Kids love it and i believe we forget that when it comes dwn to it that is the goal.
It was full of humor unlike wall-e that i really didnt laugh at. I think it was very well made with larry the cable guy as mater. It is one of the most loved by kids and i think we forget that is the main goal. Kids first, then teenagers, then anyone else. Kids want to laugh in movies and not just watch a movie about pollution and being active. I think pixar lost their way on walle by trying to teach more than entertain jason on Jul 2, 39 I really liked WALL-E, and I hope they make a sequal of that, because even though the story ended, I still wanted more.
And I am looking forward to all of the movies on the list, so stop being so critical. If you don't like to movies, then go make your own! Chris on Jul 4, 40 I am totally excited for all these Pixar films that are coming up in the following years. The one I am probably most excited about is Toy Story 3. I loved the first two films. I thought Cars was pretty good, so I am also looking forward to Cars 2 as well.
Newt looks good too. Edward on Jul 14, 41 Mr. I have never disliked one of their movies. Cars was pretty good too! I'm sorry that you grew up and refuse to watch a child aimed movie. If you don't like it, don't see it. Everyone else here must be on their period or something becuase you all can't stop complaining! There is no reason to be upset that Pixar is releasing more than one movie a year!
In fact we should be excited we get to see more of Pixar's work more often! The 2 movie out of those that intrigue me though are Up and Newt. Original and well they sound pretty awesome! I can't wait to see what the Russel kid will look like. Chubby little kids always make a movie funny and 2 Newts that have to mate? Who won't be laughing? I agree with you all though on the whole 3D thing.
I'm sick of being dizzy every time I wear those glasses for too long. Darn you Spy Kids 3!! Oh and some of those if not all of the Disney movies sound promising! Bolt is gonna be awesome! I saw a trailer for it and the little Hamster cracks me up! Try to look on the bright side of things people. Aaron on Jul 25, 43 I love disney and pixar movies so I am hoping that they are all good.
I am especially looking forward to Bolt and Toy Story 3. I think it is such a good idea that they are making so many movies in 3-D. I think that will just add to how wonderful pixar and disney are. They make it sooo much fun to wanna go and see all of these great movies. I honestly have never once hated a movie that pixar has made.
Cant wait to see what they will come up with for !!!! Pixar bought the rights a couple years ago. Andrew Stanton has confirmed that he is writing the script now, so I'm wondering when we will see more information about John Carter of Mars. Ceiver on Aug 2, 45 I am really excited to see all of the new Pixar films coming out. As a mother of two small children, I have to say I have watched Cars quite a bit.
I cannot fathom how all of you are griping about Cars 2. I love that movie, my children adore it, and I happen to think the "cheesy" message of winning isn't everything is a very valuable asset to teach our children these days.
For heavens sakes, Its a movie. You don't like, don't watch it! Jamie on Aug 2, 46 "I am really excited to see all of the new Pixar films coming out. Up looks just so effing awesome! Have you watched the Blue Ray? These stories are all basically the same old kids movie plots, some just more obvious than others I think perhaps a lot of adults like to say they like Pixar movies because of the quality of animation etc Although I wish they could ditch Larry the Cable guy I mean common, they're cars!
Who didn't play with them as a kid? Something that should be awesome to see is how these new PIXAR directors handle these upcoming films. I am really looking forward to the Princess and the Frog.
We need more quality 2D.
Disney Character Meet and Greet Tips | Walt Disney World
I loves the 3D eye candy. I'm surprised and excited to see that Toy Story 3 is being produced. I just saw a trailer for Bolt and I'll reserve judgement on the rest Newt, Elves, etc except for Cars 2. I agree with most of you that the original Cars stunk. Yes it was popular with the kids and can make a lot of money in merchandising, but is that a valid reason to churn out more crap?
In my eyes, Pixar loses integrity with that move. Like others, I would have liked to see an Incredibles sequel. I would even like to see a Nemo sequel how about Nemo 2: Blu-ray shold offer both versions on the same disk. And I think Pixar is loosing thier abilety to make them creativly because thier trying to make thier money now on mase producing them. And I think they can, now because they've already astablished them selfs as being good with the first several movies.
The first one was funny and with barelly no dialogue sent a beautiful message. The way Pixar represented robots was perfect using also plenty of the Line-Following Robot concept. Through the movie you can see how wall-e actions change few human routines till the end when they do something more than being unable. I liked too when at the end of the movie it's shown using ancient-style draws, pieces from the future since the human landing on earth.
On the other hand about Pixar mass production, I think now with Disney they got a bigger workhorse than before. As 2D movies are less demanded Disney shifted it's own personel to the production of 3D films. John on Oct 14, 56 I wonder if Pixar releasing 2 movies a year will degrade the quality of their work. If they start getting pushed by Disney to increase their movie output we will start seeing schlock instead of the great stories Pixar is known for.
