How We Rocked Our Walt Disney World Selfie Challenge

There are a lot of Disney challenges that turn a day at the parks into a full on scavenger hunt. I’ve seen 4 parks/4 day challenges, Disney food challenges, roller coaster challenges, and so many more. On our most recent visit we decided to do a Walt Disney World Selfie Challenge.

My daughter had mentioned on the flight to Orlando that she wanted to do a selfie challenge with as many characters as she could during our VIP Walt Disney World trip. 

I thought this would be a fun idea to get the kids involved in meeting the characters and let them take the lead on our vacation. I love doing kid led activities at Walt Disney World, like the Wilderness Explorers Guide at Animal Kingdom, it really brings out the Disney Magic and you get to experience it all through your kids eyes. 

Walt Disney World Character Selfie Challenge Rules

The rules of the challenge were pretty basic- take as many selfies with a Disney character as possible. Looking back we could have elaborated on this and tried to expand on it, but we also had dining reservations and attractions to ride, so character selfies were our ultimate goal.

We had 2 full park days to fit in as many Walt Disney World character meet & greets as we could. We had a park hopper ticket and we were on a Private VIP tour. (This gave us a Fastpass advantage for the meet & greets but it didn’t give us access to more or extra characters.)

What started as a fun little game turned into us really working to get that character selfie. It was so much fun and I loved watching my kids enjoy all the Disney magic.

    This is such a fun idea! Now that we have annual passes and visit more often, my husband and I were recently discussing new things, like challenges, we could do to make each trip something fun and new. This selfie challenge is a perfect example of that! I’ll have to keep this in mind for our next trip. I love your photos, especially the one with Olaf!
