    The Cast Member Autograph Book

    This isn't much of a game, but one cool thing that my family started several years ago that helps brighten someone's day is an autograph book for Cast Members. It's really fun to see their reactions when you walk up to them with a pen and say that you want their autograph...needless to say that's usually met with a few seconds of silence. Most of them are pretty flattered that you would ask, and its a really really cool way to meet people that love Disney as much as you do.

    Cool idea. That reminds me of something a CM friend of mine does. He takes an autograph book with him to work at Epcot. When he sees someone who embodied the magic, is about to have a meltdown or just seems interesting, he asks them to autograph his book.

    He has some of the best stories...sometimes, the little ones can barely sign their name and sometimes he gets something really clever. On the opposite page, he rights a bit about the circumstances, where the person is from, how old they are, etc.

    He says he loves the looks on their faces and the Guest often comments on how special this made them feel. I thought this was a very cool idea!

    Both autograph books sound like fun and both seem to help brighten the lives of both guests and those hard working CM's.

    That sound's loke a great idea. I'd love to see the expression on a CM's face. It must make their day.

    Oh my gosh! I've done that before! I went down around Christmas time and bought an autograph book! I didn't think about how there would be an extremely long line for characters, so I took my pictures with cast members I met and had them sign the book. You could tell this was a first for them. I like doing it that way anyway, the cast members have more personality than some of the characters. I'm planning to do this again when I go down in 3 days.

    Our 2 daughters just loved our waitress at Akershus! They had her sign their books and took pictures with her! She made their day! They talked about her as much as the princesses!!

    We do this. Donnie is in charge of the special book for CM's (non -character) that we really like or run into. We also have other guests that are just cool sign it also. Fun to do.
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    Jeanne, It's my buddy Travis T (I think you know him) who asks Guests to sign his book...at least he used to. I'm ashamed to admit, I haven't talked with him a quite a while.

    I was asked for my autograph twice when I worked at The Magic of Disney Animation. I was so excited and felt bad that my "autograph" was hideous lol. And then I bragged about it to the other Cast Members and they told me it was only because the guest probably thought I was an animator...and I was sad again
