Meet and Greet for guys!

My daughters made an interesting observation today! There isn’t much for guys to do in the way of meeting characters! I thought that was quite a statement from them! So, here are my thoughts on the subject…

Personally, I have no problem meeting The Princesses! But, I could see where some may have an issue with that. I would think it might be a bit of an attraction if the powers that be at Walt Disney World would maybe pair the Princesses up with the Princes. In today’s world, there are few positive role models for our boys to glean things like manors, courtesy, and chivalry! However, with every prince comes the opportunity to make an impression that could last a lifetime with our young men!

At this point, I would say that the characters that might draw the smaller boys would be Pooh and friends, Mickey Mouse, Pluto, and Goofy. I suppose The Pirates League could pull the men and boys in, but at nearly $30 each, it could be cost prohibitive! Woody can be found near Splash Mountain, along with Jessie.

Now, during Star Wars Weekends (SWW), there are special Meet and Greets at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that include Star Wars characters or Disney characters dressed in Star Wars garb. These are also for a price! You may also find the Disney Characters around various venues during SWW!

Even making The Beast more available might be considered an act of good faith from Disney in the attempt to make the parks more attractive to our boys! Why? In the end, he makes the right decision and chooses to sacrifice for what is important to him. A trait that, I believe, has been watered down in recent years.

So, what this all comes down to, is I think there needs to be more of a draw for our sons, of all ages, to Walt Disney World! I’d love to hear any ideas my readers might have! Please respond in the comments below!

Have a Blessed and Magical Easter, my friends!!

I am a Disney fanatic who can't get nearly enough time to be there! I am married to someone who isn't as into it as I am, but tolerates my "hobby". I live in Ohio, but would love to make the move to Orlando, if I would work either at Walt Disney World, or in some peripheral business serving the WDW area! I invite you to read, comment, and submit ideas anytime at Or, even better, send me a trip report to share with others! We all like to live through the experiences of others, help us stay connected to the magic! Thank you!!
