    We are doing one day at Disneyland with our 20-month-old daughter next Thursday (the 26th of April). Since we only have the one day, we will want to use the morning hours to do rides etc without long waits. Given that, does anyone have suggestions for the best strategy to get her silhouette made on Main Street? (I’ve read there can be long lines as the day goes on.) Also - does anyone know when they typically open? I haven’t been able to find that info anywhere. Thanks!!

    Don't be put off by a line. They work very fast so the line doesn't take long.

    We had one cut on Saturday afternoon, the first day of Candlelight Processional (a very busy day!) last December and were in and out pretty quickly. Just be sure you do it. It's a great souvenir!

    Yeah, I had my kids done and they were not as busy and I had thought they would be. We were in and out really quickly. It is SUCH a cool thing to have. I'm so happy I did it :)

    Thanks all for the encouragement that the lines move quickly! We will definitely make this a priority.

    When we had it done for my daughter when she was 2 they had it cut before we were even able to let them know we wanted the silhouette of Mickey in it as well, took about 30 seconds and she was done. We ended up buying the first cut as well as the one with Mickey in it as they were so cute.

    If I remember correctly from this summer they didn't open until 11am, so it didn't interfere with our mornings at all!

    instead of a silhouette, our kids chose to get their pictures drawn. One got a characature and one got a portrait. We had them done in DCA, near Ariels Grotto area.

    We have done these the last two visits (and will get one in June, too). My only regret is that we didn't get one on every trip. They are amazing and it is crazy how much they look like our boys! We get them all in one frame, so the first has our oldest three and the second has all four.

    We usually end up getting them done sometime on a Friday afternoon and have never had to wait longer than about 10 minutes.
