Despite the fact that I am well into (further than I’d care to admit) adulthood, one of my favorite things about the Disney experience is meeting the costumed characters representing our favorite Disney “stars”.

“How does one collect characters?”, you may ask. Well, please don’t jump to any weird conclusions, you will not see us stuffing Mickey and friends into the back seat of our car. Our Disney obsession does not extend to mouse-napping!
“Character collecting” is simply a figure of speech, which means we will go out of our way to meet any characters we haven’t previously met, or to get a photo op with classic characters in a new outfit.
