My daughter still talks about the time she danced with Prince Charming at 1900 Park Fare. She was wearing an Aurora dress. The part she talks about most is when she and Anastasia were chatting watching other girls dance with Prince Charming and they agreed only girls wearing pink should be able to dance with him.

Tiana talked to DD about DH being her frog bc he was wearing a green shirt. It was pretty funny.

The 1st time DD went to BBB, she met Mulan. I made some comment about DD having "big hair" and Mulan said "all princesses have big hair" without missing a beat.

But my favorite was when we were waiting for Beast and Belle played Duck, Duck Goose with the kids in line at Epcot. (They went to a nearby grassy area.) When we got up to the front of the line, to meet Beast later on, she introduced my daughter and told Beast that she was great at Duck Duck, Goose because she was a fast runner. Then she insisted on a family picture with all 3 of us and the 2 of them.

Ours was with Mulan. I asked her do to her warrior pose with my kids. And she got excited and said she would love too. She doesn't get to do it often. I told her my DH was in the airforce, she asked where he had been and complemented our kids for being so brave while dad is away. When we were getting ready to leave, she bowed at my DH and thanked him for his service....he saluted her for hers as well

One of our favorite character interactions was when DGD choose Princess Tiana gown for her BBB make over and one of the CM suggested we walk over to meet Princess Tiana. Princess Tiana made a great fuss over DGD. As we were waiting for breakfast at CRC, Princess Tiana told my DGD "Tag, you're it and when you see Cinderella, tell her I said 'tag! you're it!" When meeting Cinderella, my DGD couldn't wait to tell her "Tiana said to tell you, tag, you're it!" Cinderella exclaimed.... "She did did she? Well, when you see Aurora, you tell her I said 'tag, you're it!" Aurora smiled and said 'When you see Ariel, you tell her I said 'tag, you're it!" It was great fun!

I turned 50 shades of red and wanted to hide, but Chip/Dale interpreted the question exactly as DS intended. I appreciated the grace that Chip/Dale showed by taking that at face value.

I find it hard to believe the CM would be insulted but body language seldom lies.
I've done this each time we have met the Princesses with their Princes. I have many photos with each Princess but their Princes are rarely out. They never seem to mind. Maybe you caught Cinderella on a bad day

Peter Pan/Wendy- Peter Pan told us that he could sign his name in our autograph book because Wendy Lady taught him how to read and write

Ariel- Gave DS a kiss on his cheek and left lipstick. We told her that she was our favorite princess and she said, us red heads have to stick together.

After Ariel - Cinderella and Aurora both saw the lipstick on DS check and said that it will not do that he had lipstick from ariel and not them, so they both gave him kisses on his cheek too. But then Cinderella told DS not to show that to prince charming because he might get jealous.

At Epcot- DS was obsessed with this little mickey grabber thing he saw in a gift shop. He called it a snappy thing. When we saw Alice, he told her that he was on his way to go buy his snappy thing, and she was like, snappy thing, what is that? So he showed her with his hand how it grabs and picks up things. She then said she wanted a snappy thing cause that would be very useful if she returned to Wonderland.

All the non talking characters were super animated and we were able to totally understand what they were doing and saying just by their actions.
Buzz - DS asked him what one of the buttons on his suit does, so he gestured for DS to press it. DS pressed on it and Buzz froze still. HE stood super still like DS had just turned him off. Then Woody showed pointed to another button on Buzz and had DS press on that button, and then Buzz unfroze and came back to life. It was super cute.

When our daughter was 3 we took her to MNSSHP. She was dressed up as a robot dinosaur. She had a green dinosaur costume with light up eyes and other robot-y accessories.

Rapunzel notice her when we were in line to meet her and Flynn and declared that my daughter must be dressed up as Pascal. When we explained that she was a robot dinosaur, both Rapunzel and Flynn needed an explanation of what both robots and dinosaurs were. It was super cute.

For our photos with them, we all posed like we were roaring.

oh wait, I got the story wrong-DS asked Peter Pan where Jake was and Peter Pan said he was back in neverland at school. He pointed to Wendy and said that Wendy started a school in neverland for all the lost boys and the pirate kids and so Jake was at school. Then he told DS that even he had to go to the school and that is where he learned to read and write so he could sign autograph books.

THe next day at DHS, we saw Jake the Pirate. The first question DS asked Jake was, if he had a day off from school today. Jake at first was like, uh?, but just went with it, and started gesturing like a teacher at a board teaching something. It was pretty cute.

Love all these stories! My favorite character interaction, which we still talk about even though my girls were too young to remember it, is when my oldest tried to give her little sister away to Lilo. We were at DHS, when DD#1 was 2 1/2 and DD#2 was 7 months old. They had their picture taken with Lilo & Stitch, and Lilo was holding DD#2. When I stepped up to take her back, Lilo hugged her close and shook her head no. I turned to DD#1 and said "I think Lilo wants to keep Katie. Is that okay?" DD#1 just said yeah and started to walk back to her stroller, lol!

at CRT one night, we were the last family in a set to meet cinderella, and it was during the castle show/preceding wishes. while meeting cinderella, my nephew (3 at the time) was freaking out about the fireworks, shouting "big booms!" only it didn't sound like big booms, and his position by cinderella made it sound all the more inappropriate to anyone with grown ears.

she was really good though, and since we still had time to wait for our table and they hadn't brought in the next set of families, she came over and kept talking to him until we went up. by the time we got up to eat and meet the other princesses, wishes was going on, so we got "big booms!" again. the other princesses all said "oh, cinderella told us about you." it was just cute.

they really do have a good way of staying in character.

I think my favorite prince & princess interaction has to be when we went to the Christmas Party in 2012. Rapunzel & Flynn were amazing and I think we spent about ten minutes together as Flynn and I plotted to take over Snow White's Kingdom.

It all started with Rapunzel asking me where I was from and then Flynn was jealous I had a land named after me (Mary -- Maryland) so he decided he wanted Eugeneland and told Rapunzel she could have a corner of it and she just gave him this look so he quickly changed the subject by mentioning that Snow's Prince's Kingdom doesn't even have a name (Snow & her Prince were the couple right next to them and didn't have anyone with them). So then we decided that meant we could overthrow it and it kind of escalated from there.

They were hysterical and perfectly in character the whole time.

The characters are trained to handle those kinds of questions. most of them won't even bat an eyelash.

My niece met Cinderella once. The conversation went like:
Niece: Are you the REAL Cinderella?
Cinderella: Yes.
Niece: REALLY?
Cind: Yes!
Niece: Come here. I have to tell you something.
<Cinderella leans in close> My niece whispers:
Niece: The queen is BBBAAADDDDD!
Cinderella: Thank you for telling me! I'll be careful!

However, if you are ever in doubt, look at a couple of youtube videos of character interactions. Tink is very good with camera's (she looks inside the lens to see if she can see who you have trapped in there so she can wave to them).

Alice and Mad Hatter are a bit mavericks / troublemakers. Peter can be as well. They all have their own personalitities, but they are very good at dealing with young kids and keeping the magic. You'll be fine. Have no fear!
