Are Kids Often Afraid of Disney Cruise Characters?

This really depends on your kid so it is very important to pay close attention to his or her body language, especially with very young children. Often, non-costumed characters such as the Disney princesses appear less threatening to kids so it is a good idea to open them up to the idea of interacting with strangers with these type of characters (e.g., Jasmine, Belle and Snow White). It is a good idea to hold your child's hand while approaching the character and stay close to him or her while meeting the costumed character for the first time. Pay attention to your child's reaction: Let go if he or she starts smiling or retreat if he or she starts pouting or crying. Don't force your child to interact with a character if he or she is not comfortable.
