Originally posted by sogger1 If you eat at a character Dinner at any resort, tell your kids to write down their name and address on a small piece of papaer and give it to the characters. Most likely the characters will send you an 8 by 11 REAL KODAK PHOTO of them, and they'll sign it too! My daughter Kristin got one. She recieved a picture of Chip and Dale fishing near Japan with the neatest clothes and backround!! They also signed it for her. This was a real picture! We still have ut. What a great keepsake
On my last trip I had a talking Austin Powers keychain on my bag(to make it easy to find).CM's in UK at Epcot made little jokes to me about it.(usually along the lines of Austin being on home turf ) If you have something like that take it
WONDERFUL THREAD! I have read EVERY entry and learned some that I didn't know. Every WDW trip is different. Took 8 trips before we discovered DQ. The bumper cars (ranger spin) on the top floor were my favorite there. Another little known area to visit is the ADVENTURER'S CLUB. It has a unique Disney-filled theme. If ya'll haven't been--make a trip!
I was on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride last Sept and discovered this by accident. Just before we went under one of the bridges, I kept my eye on a bald pirate who was close to the water, on the left side. I think he was singing the Yo Ho song, but I don't remember for sure. Just before our boat went under the bridge, he turned his head toward our boat and winked at me! Freaked me out because I totally didn't expect that. I turned to my mom and sis and said, "Did you just see that?" But by that time, our boat went under the little bridge and the bald pirate was impossible to see anymore.
Not sure if this has been said or not, but this is a really cool deal---- On the riverboat at Liberty Square in MK, get there a little before loading and ask the CM if you/your children can be the "Captain" for that trip. If no one else has asked, you get to go up to the "steering wheel" with the capain. The kids get to "Steer" the boat. (my kids thought they really were steering, and the captain was giving them hints about steering, turning and not crashing.) It was really neat. They rang the bell, too. Then, at the end of the ride, the children were given certificates saying they had been honorary captains of the riverboat.!!!!!!
