Can I Have Your Autograph?
Disney parks maintain the illusion of magic through the stringent consistency they apply to everything, including the autographs signed by characters. If Minnie Mouse scribbled her name in your autograph book in California’s Disneyland, you could bet it will look exactly the same when you go to Walt Disney World in Florida.
Cast members who play a character are required to practice their character’s signatures over and over until they’ve mastered each stroke, and sometimes one cast member plays multiple characters, meaning they’ve got many signatures to perfect. It’s a good thing Disney characters aren’t real; otherwise, this would feel a little like committing fraud.
