Just overall i have started to see the trend of Characters starting to loose their autographing power, for example we have seen at all of the Long Lost Friend Events, characters wont sign and they are given cards instead, as well as at the Unleash the Villians Event. Now i know that these measures were mainly to keep wait times down since they are special events.
However, Character meets such as wreck-it-ralph and vanellope, have also given autograph cards. Now i know that it is impossible for ralph to sign something, but i think it is very possible for vanellope to sign for both of them, much like how Mary Poppins or Bert will sign for any of their penguins when they are out.
And one more that comes to mind is Jack and Sally's new meet at WDW on main street, apparently they also have autograph cards..
So that leaves me with this question, Do you believe that this will be an eventual measure to cut back on training performers how to sign elaborate signatures in costume, and continue in generic, bulk, costco brand DisneyParks Magic?
