Creative Ideas For Disney Autographs

September 2, 2019

No matter how old you get, meeting your favorite Disney character is one of the best parts of your Disney Vacation. And what better way to remember that interaction with their autographs.

After all, Disney characters have the ability to make you feel like a kid again. No wonder Peter Pan never wants to grow up. Being a kid is awesome!

Don’t get me wrong. I love autograph books. In fact, my kids made their own books for their very first trip to Walt Disney World.

But, they have a tendency to get ripped up or lost in bookshelves. They don’t get seen on a daily basis.

So, here are some alternatives to the Autograph Book that Disney Characters will be more than happy to sign for you.

Creative Ideas For Disney Autographs

Photo Mats

Having a signed Mat with a picture from your trip is the perfect way to see those Autographs on a daily basis.

Have a little one who loves princesses? Have them sign one mat and place a photo of your little one with her favorite princess in a frame.

Want to remember who you met at each Park? Separate the autographs with the characters you met at each Park.

The combinations are endless.

Autograph Plush

Companies actually make Character Plushes that are made specifically for for autographs.

As long as you purchase non-bleeding pens or markers, you will have an amazing souvenir that both adults and children would love to have.

The specific Plushes mentioned in this post are available in:

Disney books serve a dual purpose on Disney vacations. They give your child something to do while waiting in those long lines.

But, they also make for great way to get character autographs.

It’s a fact that characters love to look at books with their pictures in them! They can’t help reading about themselves and see how they are portrayed in the books.

As a bonus, this means that your child gets extra time with the characters.

A couple of adorable girls in front of us had their favorite books with them. Jasmine and Aladdin both looked through the books and loved signing their names next to their pictures.


I’ve seen bring a variety of items into the Parks to have characters autograph. And one of those items was a pillowcase.

I would use this for display purposes only. But, it’s a cute idea. Again, just be sure to use a fabric marker, so it won’t bleed and mess up your design.

As long as you are not wearing the clothing, Characters will have no problem signing your shirt, shoes, hat, or anything else you hand them.

My son likes showing off his autographed Mickey Mouse hat when he wear is.

Park Maps

Park maps are more than just a way to make it from Point A to Point B. It’s also a souvenir. But, it’s not just any souvenir. It’s a free souvenir.

You can do anything with them. We have made DIY magnets out of them. But, they would also serve as a great way to display your character autographs.

Who says that everything at Disney has to be expensive?



How cute would an ornament with a few of your favorite characters be?

These may not work for every Disney character, but non-fluffy characters would have no problem signing ornaments.

Just remember that glass is not allowed in the Disney Parks, so be sure to look for plastic, non-shattering ornaments if you decide to purchase them before your next trip.


Do you decorate your house in all things Disney?

Displaying a plate with Disney autographs on them are not only adorable, it’s something that you will be able to look at every day.

Again, Disney does state that glass containers (besides Baby Food Jars and perfume bottles) are prohibited from being brought into the Disney Parks. But, this is a great option for Disney Cruises.

You could also book a Character Dining Reservation outside of the Parks. Many of the best character restaurants are located within the Disney Resorts. is not authorized or endorsed by, or officially connected with The Walt Disney Company, or any of their affiliates.
