I recently posted about a great Walt Disney World money saving tip….. buying your autograph books ahead of time. I asked my readers to share the ones that they have made/bought.
These tips from from my reader Sam….
I wanted to share with you one of our autograph books. We have bought them at the Disney store, on ebay, and at the park itself.
1. Have the character sign on the right side and leave the left side open. When you get home, print your pics and attach the photo to the empty page across from each character’s signature. Not only do you have the autograph but also a photo of your child with the character. (pic attached)
– Keep in mind while in Epcot’s World Showcase you can get the workers at each Kidcot stop to sign & or stamp your autograph book. (pic attached)
2. My oldest son who was 11 this year felt he was too old for autograph books. However he found a baseball hat in one of the souvenir stores and had the characters sign his hat. They were more than happy to do it and it ended up looking really cool.
3. We have also used notebooks. My son used a Pirates mini notebook when we went in 2009. We had him write a little summary each day in the back of the notebook, and he got the autographs in the front.
4. If you have a car or aren’t staying on property some of the grocery stores, walmart and drug stores usually have Disney merchandise and more often than not it’s cheaper.
5. If the kids know you’re going the autograph book can be a good Easter basket filler, Stocking stuffer or birthday present. You can also ask grandparents or other relatives to gift the child one.
