A Few Characters

I didn't have to knock over any little kids at all!

Aulani is a Disney resort – that’s why I’m talking about it here! But, unlike Disney World and Disneyland, there is not a theme park attached and the characters are few. There is a (very pricey!) character breakfast one can attend in one of the restaurants, but the characters will also hang out in certain areas, waiting to be noticed, posing for photos, and signing autograph books. At Aulani, there was Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy, as well as Stitch – all wearing “vacation” garb!

Now, it could have been the time of year – we were there in late January – but nobody really swarmed the characters. There was a really laid-back attitude toward them. Naturally, I decided to add to my autograph collection and get the elusive Mickey – so hard to get at the theme parks! I’m not a Stitch fan – never saw the movie – so I just went for the classics I didn’t have. Did I feel silly -as an adult – pursuing cartoon characters? No, I did not! I am Dizzy for Disney!

Donald looks pretty awesome in that hat!

Donald was hard to get in the theme parks also, but easy-peasy in Hawaii!
