Tips for Getting Rapunzel’s Autograph on a Frying Pan

The most-asked question we get is about the frying pan that we used for Rapunzel and Flynn Rider’s signatures at the Bon Voyage Breakfast at Disney World. In case you haven’t seen our video or post yet, we got Rapunzel and Flynn to autograph a small frying pan at the Bon Voyage Breakfast. It provided great interaction, a cute decoration for our kitchen, and a reminder of a wonderful memory.

Where did you get your frying pan? 

This is a very popular question. I actually received my frying pan for Christmas. Bear knew how much I wanted a frying pan for our upcoming trip and found a Reese’s (my favorite) gift set at Cracker Barrel that came with the frying pan.  They are also available on Amazon. Make sure you get the mini one. You don’t want to be carrying around a big one.

What kind of pen did you use for autographs?

We used a set of metallic permanent markers. It doesn’t matter which brand. The colors were more important to me so I found a set that had colors to match Rapunzel’s dress because I’m all matchy matchy like that. I found mine at Wal-Mart but you can also order a set from Amazon

How do you protect the frying pan from rusting?

To help keep the pan from rusting, you need to season it.  Just coat the entire pan (even the handle) in a thin coat of vegetable oil, then place it upside down in the oven at 350 degrees for one hour.  Give it ample time to cool after you turn your oven off, and take it out.  It should resist rust on its own from this point on. 
Will the autographs smear?

It has been three months since our trip and no smearing. Make sure it is completely dry after you get your autographs before it comes in contact with anything. When we got home, I wasn’t taking any chances so I sprayed the pan with a clear sealer to add extra protection.

I would suggest booking the Bon Voyage Breakfast. You can get both Rapunzel and Flynn’s autograph and you don’t have to carry a frying pan around the park.

For every little time and money, you can make your Disney experience that much more magical.

  • So is yours the 3.5″, 6.5″, or 8″ size? Just want to make sure I get one that’s big enough for the autographs to both fit and still be legible. I love this idea! Thinking about some other items to have autographed while we are on our next trip.

  • What size is your cast iron skillet? I want to get one that is big enough for the autographs so that when they sign them they have enough room so the autographs are not squashed and are still legible
