Disney Vacation 2008: Animal Kingdom – autographs

Disney Tip: Character Autographsif you have small children a wonderful way to expand your experience, collect ephemera, and get some rest – is to purchase a character autograph book and stop at all of the character locations.  I found that my 9 year old son was just as excited about standing in line to collect an autograph as he was to stand in line for a ride.  It gave me a chance to slow down, and when we returned home I realized that I had some wonderful ephemera.

I used an Exacto knife to carefully cut the pages at the seam of the autograph book and then trimmed them using a paper cutter.  Notice on this page that I framed the autographs with the same frame I used for the pictures, cut with a specialized corner cutter.

In the top left hand corner is a photograph of a sign that I hand cut with sharp point scissors to create the title block for this page.  You will also notice in the right bottom corner of the left page a copper coin that says “Animal Kingdom” – this was from the souvenir store at the Disney Hotel and was part of a set of all of the park.  You will see more of these on future pages.

The background papers are from the Disney Scrapbook paper pack that I bought at the hotel souvenier store – I have not been able to find these anywhere else – so buy them while you are in the park.
