Wow! Great list!:+1:

Thank you

Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe? At park opening?

I had NO IDEA this one was a thing! My daughter LOVES Lady & the Tramp! Do they take it back and stamp w/ paw prints or something? We are not eating there this trip, can I walk in and hand it to someone at the host stand?

When is the best time to ask about this - right when you go in or is there a specific time? We have never in five trips done ETR and plan to this year!

Does it matter which station you get on the train?

You can just take the autograph book to tonys and they will take it back for you from what i hear. These are not things i can confirm just things i have heard or others sent me. We plan on trying them on our upcoming trip so for your other questions i can not really answer. I believe the christmas shop you mentioned is the correct one. Not sure on tiki room time or if the train station matters. Sorry i couldn’t be more helpful.

No worries, thank you so much for the wonderful suggestions!! When is your trip? I’d love to hear which of these you tried afterwards! We go Nov. 27.

We’ll be there in one week and it’s wheels up we’re disney bound. I’ll try to do a trip report and include what we do but it will take a little time. I work full time and chase around our one year old all the time too so I’m pretty busy. I’ll keep you posted. I also made lists for the other parks if you’re interested you can search for them on the forum. Again they are ones i can not confirm but plan on trying.

Awesome! Thanks again for the tips! :slight_smile:

What does “bring jewels to “grab” on 7 dwarfs mine train” mean? Pretend to grab some jewels along the way?

I think so! I was wondering too though. Sounds like a cute idea. :slight_smile:

Haven’t done it myself yet but from what i have heard you pick up some cheap fake gems/jewels from a craft store and take them with you. You hide them in your pocket and tell your child to try and grab some gems while riding and then you pull yours out of your pocket with out child seeing and say you grabbed them.

I found bag of fake gems and nuggets on Amazon that might serve for both the Philharmagic trick and the Seven Dwarves trick (Acrylic Pirate Treasure) but I have a sneaking suspicion that if I tell my kids I grabbed some jewels in the mine, they’d give me grief for “stealing” them.

Our little guy is only one so we probably will not be trying this trick this trip. At least you have honest kids worried about you stealing. Maybe say they fell into your lap or say your going to return them. Just some ideas.



Love this!!! Thank you!!!

We have done this. We didnt eat there. We gave them the autograph book and they took it and it returned with paw prints.
