I quickly and instinctively developed a policy for getting my picture taken with the Disney characters. If they were in a full costume (i.e. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, etc.) I was all for it. But if they we a “human” character, I just took their picture from a distance, usually with some random child in it. Otherwise it just struck me as plain weird.
Next time I go to Disney, I will need to bring a child with me…even if I have to beg, borrow or steal one. Well maybe just beg or borrow. A child justifies so many things at Disney, and it would free the hubs from having to be in the pictures with me, or me having to be in a picture by myself—because that is totally awkward.
And while I’m still waiting for Marc to upload the rest of the pictures onto our Media PC from the iPad, here are some of the characters that I paparazzi’d.
Mary Poppins (I just love this costuming)
I swear I have Alice (from Alice in Wonderland) too, but she must not be downloaded yet. And then after realizing that hubs was not going to cooperate with the getting pictures with characters on a frequent basis, I also have a picture of Pluto and Daisy Duck somewhere.
Thank goodness for parades. The parades are the most efficient way of getting character photos. Just make sure you have your spot at least 45 minutes prior to the parade if you want a good spot—and people, make sure the spot is in the shade! Here are just a few of the many parade shots.
A few characters from the Animal Kingdom parade:

And last, but definitely not least (and definitely only a small percentage of the characters in the parade) the Magic Kingdom:
Until my next Disney post, see ya real soon!
