Silhouette cut-outs at MK

Has anyone ever had the silhouette cut-outs done on Main Street at MK?
I've often gone past the cart, wondering how good of job they do. One time I asked the price and it's cash only. I couldn't find any reviews. Thanks!

Hi! We went MK last Nov. and I had a silhouette done of my 3 kids. I thought it turned out wonderful. The man who cut it out has talent. The likeness to my kids is uncanny. I bought two oval frames that they had. I think I spent $42 altogether. It was cash only. I gave the 2nd frame to my mom and she loved it I am thinking of doing it again either this Nov. or the following year to see any differences in the kids. Thought this was a wonderful souvenier for the money

I have not had the silhouttes done at the MK, but a few years ago, the company my husband works for had a few of Disney's silhoutte cutters at their Family Day. We had them done there for both of our boys, and they were exact. They did them for free, I guess the company paid them for the day.

We did~

We had this done of my ds this past January. You get two pictures for the price of one. Like the pp we bought two frames and gave the pictures to our ds's two sets of grandparents as gifts. Wish we had kept one for ourselves. They were beautiful and you could tell who the picture was. It was also amazing to watch the artist free-hand the cuts. Well worth the price. I think we paid 12.00 for the two pictures and then $8.00 per frame.

I think the price may go up if you are doing a cut out of more then one person.

I had shilouttes done of my kids in Oct. They did a fabulous job. My little guy could barely sit still, and the likeness is still remarkable. I think I paid 38.00 or so for two shilouttes and two frames with two subjects. I kept one and gave the other to my MIL. Best souvineer ever.

Thanks all for the quick replies. Is a tip customary? And I mean as in cash, not a Hitchcock silhouette (which was quick work to find)! Although I am a huge fan of his movies.

We had it done for DD last April. She was asleep when we got there and I asked the artist if we should come back when she woke up. He said "No. Actually it will be better. She won't be distracted looking around at everything". The picture is one of my most cherished items from that trip!! It was crazy how much it looked like my daughter. Ringlets and all. I highly reccomend it!

we just got them a week ago and the guy did an amazing job. i could not believe how inexpensive they were... i believe we paid about $30 + tax for two kids... we got each done separately and framed, plus an additional unframed copy of each, all for that price total. i think if you get them unframed they are only about $7 each, which includes a free copy. very worth it.
