Disneyland Autographs with Character Dining

When you’re short on time, the best way to get a ton of Disneyland autographs is to book a character meal. You’ll meet the most Disneyland characters at Minnie & Friends breakfast at Plaza Inn.

You’d easily spend triple the amount of time trying to track down these characters on their own. Cinderella Fairy Godmother costume.
