A Mini “Tutorial”: Doing Character Meet and Greets … as an Adult!

By John Peters

Let’s face it, folks, if you’re spending your vacation at Walt Disney World without kids, you’re a big kid yourself!

My wife and I live in the Central Florida area, and we choose to spend every vacation at Disney!  It gives us a chance to escape the stress of the “real world” and just have fun.

As an adult couple touring the parks, we do things a little different than those “Commando Families” you hear about – in the parks from dawn ’til after Midnight.  We set a much slower pace.

We take time to see more shows, enjoy dining out more often, and even hit some of The World’s better lounges and bars.  However, one thing we still enjoy is meeting Disney’s characters!

Hey!  No matter how hot it is, who just cut you off in line, or if your Soarin’ FastPass+ didn’t work, you can’t meet Mickey Mouse and not come away happy!

If you’re like us, and decide to do character Meet and Greets as an adult, try to keep these guidelines in mind …

1. There will be children.  If misbehaving children or crying babies drive you nuts, maybe this isn’t the activity for you.

2. Don’t be rude … but, don’t be surprised if others are.  Sometimes, kids butt in front of you!

3. Remember to have fun!  Going to WDW is about escaping everyday stress, so, no matter what you face while you’re waiting to have your picture taken with Goofy, relax and enjoy yourself!
