Adults and Disney Characters
For a long time I thought I was the only adult without children who actually waited in line to take pictures with the characters. After many hours surfing the internet for Disney news I discovered there are in fact many adults without children who love the characters and will treat them like celebrities.
Since our big move to Florida I have not stood in line to have my picture taken with any characters, for two reasons, I have been having an absolutely fantastic time at the Sounds Like Summer concert series in Epcot and two, the lines are a lot longer than I remember.
Because I want to update my character photo collection I have decided to set aside at least one day a week at one park for a month and try to get as many character photos as I can. To inspire myself to stand in the long lines I have collected a few of my favorite photos with characters. I hope you find them as enjoyable as I do.
First up is my newest character photo taken at Norway's Akershus Royal Banquet Hall Princess Dinner:
We almost did not take this photo because we saw nothing but cute little girls dressed in their princess attire standing in line before us for their photos. We felt completely silly, soaked from rain but we have this photo in our Disney memory book. It is too bad that I did not bring my camera that day because all the princesses were there.
Besides the photo of Norwood and I with Belle I have not gotten a new photo with myself and a character since 2003!
Here are just a couple of my favorites from December 2003.
Me and Chip or is it Dale, I could never tell the difference.
And Rafaki and I in December 2003
Neither was a digital picture when they were taken and neither is of the greatest quality but they are Disney memories I will always cherish.
Have a Disney Day Everyone!
