How do you interact with your favorite characters? Do you just walk up, give them your autograph book and smile for a picture? That's what most people do…and you are missing out on tons of fun!!
Our first dinner on our June trip was to 1900 Park Fare with Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine, Anastasia and Drizella.
Characters are my favorite and I always try to interact with the characters as much as possible! My son is getting more comfortable with them, so I wanted to get him in on the action. (Good and bad idea!!) We had a shirt made asking Drizella to marry him and he came armed with a Ring Pop to propose and a candy bracelet for Anastasia so she wouldn't be sad that her sister was getting all the attention!
Prince Charming, Cinderella and Lady Tremaine stopped by our table and were great! My husband made a comment about the size of Lady Tremaine's 'caboose' and she was not pleased and stormed off! Anastasia was next and we gave her the candy bracelet….she was OVERLY excited which scared the pixie dust right out of my son! He didn't expect her reaction to be as grand as it was but her reaction to getting the 'jewelry' was great! She teased Drizella (not knowing her lovely sister would be getting a ring and proposal!)
He was still a bit startled when Drizella came by and didn't want to show her his shirt (which was under a button down shirt). There were a few tears but she was great letting him know he planned this proposal perfectly! We did manage to get a great picture of the happy couple!
The photopass photographer was fabulous before and after dinner. Prior to dinner, we took our family picture and then pictures of my son with his shirt open. As soon as we walked out after dinner, the photographer asked my son how it went and if he was getting married. He saw the 'kiss' on his check and figured out she must has said yes so he took more picture of the future groom!
