I wanted to share my review of Disney’s Contemporary Resort, new safety policies and procedures at the parks and resorts, dining procedures, and [...]

An Autograph-ed Book At every street cart, ride exit, and shop at any Disney Park, you will find the exclusive and official Autograph book, complete with matching pen.  The first time my daughter was old enough to appreciate getting the characters’ signatures, that’s exactly what we bought.  I even bought the one that had slots for 4x6 pictures so I could put her pictures with the characters in the book right next to their autographs (like I ever have pictures actually printed…).
