Did you know, if you ask (nicely), some of the face characters will let you record messages of them saying hello to your loved ones back home? We had no idea! Some of you may be reading this and are surprised that we (Felicia & Sean) just realized we could do this, or for some of you, like us, it may come as a really pleasant surprise.
Here’s how we found out: During our last trip, we got to hang out with two of the cutest little kids in the whole world (OK, we’re a little biased, but they are really cute), our niece (3.5 yrs. old) and nephew (5.5 yrs. old). They happened to be lucky enough to live within driving distance of Walt Disney World. Between visiting on a kid’s schedule, long lines, and the general business of the days in the parks, they never got to meet their favorite characters, Anna and Elsa (well, our niece’s favorite … our nephew says Frozen is for girls).
Later in the week, after they had returned home, we went back to the Magic Kingdom Park. That night, right after the fireworks, we headed toward Princess Fairytale Hall. While in line, we thought it would be so cool if Anna and Elsa could actually talk to our niece and nephew via video. We kind of laughed it off but then thought it couldn’t hurt to ask. The worse they can say is “no,” and if so, we would still have awesome photos and autographs to give them. When our turn came to visit Anna and Elsa, we asked the photographer if it would be possible to have them say a little hello. What resulted were two videos that made two special kids very, very happy!
Their mom said they were so excited the next morning when they had a special message from the Arendelle royal family waiting for them. To this day, both their parents say it’s the most-watched video they have. Who knew that 10 seconds could create such a lasting memory?
Have you ever asked a face character to record a video? If so, what character and what message did they have?
