Autographs or no autographs?

We have been there 4 times and have yet to get an autograph book. Two years ago my daughters wanted one and it was the 2nd to last day. I told them at this point, you already saw all the characters. This past year I figured they would each want one, and they never once mentioned getting one. We do get lots of photos with the characters!
We do the character meals, short lines and Disney Chase character greets. Other than that, we're not in a rush to see characters. After the first time, especially.
My sisters and I never did the autograph thing during any of the trips my mother took us. I have noticed though that the characters have signed autographs and rushed people along, whereas for my own children they actually spent more time with them and had more unique experiences.

My opinion: NO AUTOGRAPHS. If you go about collecting autographs, you're going to want to get into lots of lines to get MORE autographs. You are going to spend a crazy amount of time collecting signatures.

If you meet the characters just for the photo op, I think you'll find you only do the ones that you really want to - and you will save lots of frustration along the way. That, and a year later, you won't have this book of signatures that no one cares about...

My daughters will be 5 and 7 this year and we are doing the autographs again. Last year was the first time we did it an they loved it. Especially at the character meals.
My kids, (5 & 3) did it but I don't think they really looked at them afterwards. They had fun with them while we were there, they were super excited about meeting characters though. So it wasn't anything extra.
