Quite A Character

So I'm sure everyone either has pictures of Disney characters or pictures with Disney characters. Can I see some?

Here's mine.

What is unique about this is that you seldom get more than 1 character in a particular pictures, especially if it's one of the Fab 5. I think they try to spread them out so that there's a chance that you'll buy one or more of the pictures. So having almost all of the Fab 5 in one picture (missing Donald) is something highly unusual.

This was taken during the Expedition Everest pin event, thus, the costumes of the characters.

What a great photo, Zapperz (by the way, voted for your tinkertoy photo over on WDWMagic!).

So sad that you're missing Donald, your favorite!

I like how Goofy's actually sitting how a dog would sit! Clever!

I'll go upload some of my character shots to photobucket to add them!

It's always fun to see Donald in his "The Three Caballeros" costume. This one was taken after one of Florida's infamous brief but powerful September rainstorms.

Does this qualify as a "character?"

Zapperz will be the definitive response on what a character is and isn't, but I think you're good to go. He's in the disney parks. he kind of signs autographs...

Darth Vader certainly qualifies as a "character". As along as it's a character that appears at a Disney theme park, or in a Disney movie, it counts! Smile

How do princess costumes always stay so perfect? They're being hugged by sticky kids all day and they leave looking just the same as they did when they came on stage??

Since we are allowing Darth, I thought I would include this photo. It is one of my favorites from the star wars weekends in 2008. (the kid is not mine, but he was so darn cute I had to get a picture.)

Nope. We were there on a normal, ordinary day. But then again, this was in 2003. I'm guessing that they are no longer around, especially nowadays when Disney is cutting back on costs. There's no reason to have a "generic" costumed characters these days when one is trying to save money.

Whoops! Haven't been to this thread in a while and now I'm smiling ear to ear! Those dinos in dino land are so funny. They make me crack up every time I see them.
