Before my first trip to DL I had no idea how much fun it would be to meet the characters i had known and loved my whole life. I swear I was more excited each time we spotted someone than the kids were :rotfl2:. I completely reverted to childhood which is what I love about anything Disney, it just makes you feel young again.

We pretty much managed to see all of our favourites last year but alas Mary Poppins was elusive. We had just come from New York and had seen Mary Poppins on Broadway so she was high on my DD's list. We only saw her the once and we quickly jumped in the horrendously long line content to wait things out, it would all be worth it. Unfortunately the family in front of us told us that the CM had said that they were the end of the line and to let everyone arriving from then on know that.

Sigh, we were disappointed and sad to never see her again. She will be definitely on our list of must sees next year at WDW.

With that said, we were still so thrilled to see so many wonderful characters and esp with the princesses, I was blown away with the detail in the costuming, so lovely. And actually was astounded at how much Cinderella and Snow White looked like the real thing.

Snow White ended up becoming my favourite, mainly because we met her at the Halloween party one evening and she was terribly sweet with the kids and then the following day we went for lunch at Ariel's Grotto and she immediately remembered meeting them and picked up the conversation where it left off the night before. That was like Pixie Dust to the children, and to me. I may or may not have gotten a little tear in my eye, although it could've been that damn pixie dust I'm talking about:lmao:.

Oh and Tinkerbell asking the kids about Australia and did they know Nemo and was Sydney Harbour really beautiful etc. I love how they totally stay in character, it makes the whole thing so much more fun.

I totally think that the characters were my favourite thing about DL, they really made the whole thing special.

Anyway, now I know how to share photos on here I wanted to share a couple of my favourites and encourage you all to share some of your faves, along with any stories that you remember that made your experience more memorable.

Here's my girl Snow. Excuse how awful I look, I had feet covered (and I mean covered) in blisters by now and brushing my hair and putting on makeup were down the list of priorities. I was all about popping some more ibuprofen 4 hourly LOL.

Isn't she pretty

The very handsome Captain Jack, I love how he stays in character and kind of acts like he's had a little too much rum :rotfl:

Sleeping Beauty was DH's fave, hmmm I didn't like her tan, I expect princesses to be fair, you know "fair maiden" :lmao:

OOOOOO....Mary Poppins! My girls and I saw her, by accident in Epcot. I was not aware that they had a Mary Poppins character walking around. We saw her as she was heading to come in for a break and my daughter asked if she would be back and she said yes. So we hung out until she did. My youngest ran to be the first in line...I could see her, but I don't run, so I tried walking quickly. Needless to say I was told by Mary herself that I should not have left her unattended. I would post a picture, but I don't know how. It was my favorite meet and greet and I was soooooo happy to have seen her.

Great pictures...I want to go back.....

I know exactly what you mean about meeting the characters.

We had been to Universal Studio's and DS wouldn't have a bar of Dora, we were very worried about his reaction at Disney.

As it stood the only characters he was scared of were his favourites, Woody and Jessie :rotfl:

He really took to Tigger and Pooh (or Boo as he calls him)

http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k18/becpee/IMG_0571.jpg

http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k18/becpee/IMG_0570-1.jpg

http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k18/becpee/IMG_0567.jpg

And he totally fell in love with Tinkerbell, people were waiting to meet her and he would not stop talking to her and hugging her :laughing: and Terrence was playing sad because DS wouldn't even look at him when he wouldn't stop looking at Tink :tinker:

http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k18/becpee/IMG_0710.jpg

http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k18/becpee/IMG_0711-1.jpg

DS4 with Fawn, I can't remember what he was telling her but she seems amazed..

http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k18/becpee/IMG_0706.jpg

And Cinderella, what 4 year old by does not fall in love with Cinderella?? I think he was gazing into her eyes....

http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k18/becpee/IMG_0588.jpg

Chip and Dale

http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k18/becpee/IMG_0688.jpg

Pluto (DS4 was hugging them all tight I think LOL)

http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k18/becpee/IMG_0686-1.jpg

And we were so lucky to meet Micky and Minnie on our last day!!

YAY!!!
I'm TOTALLY Character Obsessed too. I RUN when I see Stitch!! He always gets a big hug :goodvibes: So does Tigger. And Chip and Dale....
I MAINLY like the non face characters

THIS is why I love Character meals.
If you want Mary Poppins then you MUST go to 1900 Park Fare. That was SOOOO much fun. You get Alice, Mad Hatter, Mary Poppins, Winnie and Tigger!!!
I loved Alice and Hatter. They are so much fun.
I look like something resembling death warmed up in this for whatever reason...but this is the lady herself

Becpee - awwwwww, how sweet your little boy is. Nobody hugs like a 4 year old. I wish my kids weren't so big LOL. I love love love the ones with Tink, that is adorable, and the one with Cinderella, sigh how gorgeous.

Queenie, lots of amazing captures. You sure have met tons of characters and some different ones which is great. Some different ones will be my aim for the next trip and thanks for the advice on 1900 Park Fare, we may just have to do that one. Love the Lady Tremaine one, hilarious.

Keep sharing people, these are making my day.

Obviously you want a photo with the character but I often just end up taking a photo of the character myself.
Found some other's I love in my picasa from Tokyo.
You got quite a few different ones...

Thanks for posting everyone and keep them coming. I'm in bed with the laptop; so the pictures are really making my day.

I must get round to finding some from previous trips and posting.

We saw Mary Poppins and Alice at the UK pavillion at Epcot. They seem to be a regular fixture there.

Such rich colours!!!
That is one ORANGE Tigger :thumbsup2

I love the nose thing too.
Goofy, Pluto, Eeyore all do it.
Poor Goofy one time got jostled while signing so got some ink on his nose :hug:

Just remembered this one...
Stitch as I say is a favourite anyway...but he REALLY was very naughty on the cruise.
[even if you aren't a huge fan of him you HAVE to track him down and have a play. :yay:]

When we were up on deck 9 to get the other photo (previously posted) he was playing with 'buttons'. Stitch's head is metal...and magnetic (kinda explains a lot :lmao: ) and he had gotten hold of those 'best kept secret' DVC buttons. So as he arrived he was sticking them to his head :rotfl2:
At the same time he was also entangling himself in the pull out queue tape from a pole.
The poor 'minding' CM....poor girl... :rotfl2:

Then on Pirate night AGAIN he was playing with the queue tape. AND playing on the ground. Then he look up with this
'what? who me? I didn't do anything :goodvibes'

http://lh6.ggpht.com/_IsPC7aEru3U/S07nvl8J6oI/AAAAAAAAFiU/BiXgeR-8Fr8/s512/Pirate%20Stitch.jpg

And it would ALSO appeaer he has a crush on Ariel :scared1:

Hahahaha, he does look naughty. I've heard Goofy and Tigger can be very "playful" also but have yet to have the fun experience of that. I'm not sure I quite get the "stitch" thing but will seek him out next time to see if he can work his magic on me.

As for the colours of my images, I totally agree, they are "BRIGHT". This was very deliberate. I wanted our holiday pics, esp the Disney ones to have a "cartoon" quality about them, almost like they were a dream because (and don't laugh LOL) that whole trip for me was a dream come true. I wanted the colours to reflect that. Sounds corny but makes perfect sense to me. And you are right, that is one orange tigger :lmao:

Oh and I meant to say "what is up with the face of the fairy godmother". That is a tiny bit weird LOL. I would've prefered a proper "older" face. hahahaha

That's what they do at the Tokyo and Hong Kong because the CMs are all Asian. So they have face masks as well. My friend takes her kids to Tokyo Disney frequently and I always say those kids will get a real shock when they go to DL or WDW and see face characters who actually speak English :lol:.

This is true.
They DO have western CMs and they are all around but the fairy godmother is not a prominent enough figure to pay the extra wages for a western CM when they are just wandering.
There was an (I suspect Aussie) Indiana Jones Character you could meet and greet with.
All the princesses ARE proper face characters.
But yeah...a little weird I agree:lmao:

And I think that was a great decision about the photos! I really really love it! :thumbsup2 It works really well on your son's ear hat too!
I'm very jealous about Sully. I've NEVER found him at a meet and greet.

Sully was at the CA Halloween Party near the Monsters Inc ride at a little dance party that was being held there. My husband got all giggly when we found him because he loves Monsters Inc. I'm surprised he didn't go up for a hug himself LOL, it would've only have been his dislike of public displays that stopped him :rotfl2:.

That makes sense about the fairy godmother mask, I hadn't thought of that.

Oooh, I am loving all these photos! Ms Shuttergirl, do share your tips on how you took your photos. The colours are so vibrant!

And the children loved Stitch on the cruise as well. My daughter thought he was hilarious because he kept trying to "lick" her.

Shushh, it's not how I took the photos but more how I altered them in Photoshop afterwards. And if I told you how I did that "I'd have to kill ya" :rotfl2:. Trade secrets and all that.

Oh my goodness all of these photos are awesome. Shuttergirl I love the one of your DD dancing in the parade, sooooo fun. My girls got pulled into every single parade we watched :lmao: and I love my pics of them in the parades too.

I understand the reasoning behind having to have a mask on fairy godmother but I still think it looks freaky.

Anyways, I will see if I can figure out how to add pics and will put up some of my own.

P.S. I know this has nothing to do with anything really but Shuttergirl, you kids really do look like you, especially your son :thumbsup2

I love your shots from Aladdin!!!
How did you get such great photos without a flash!
Aladdin is the BEST in park show anywhere. The Genie is a genius. They were planning on ripping it out and replacing it with the travesty known as Toy Story the Musical but they have decided to keep it 'due to popular demand' :woohoo:

This is one of my favourite shots.
This was a lady on a MISSION!!!

Great photos!

I have to agree about Aladdin, it is a fantastic show! And that Genie, he is an absolute classic! The Tiger Woods drama was all the rage when we were there in December and he mentioned Tiger in the show, it was hilerious!

Queenie I love the Tokyo show images. Gorgeous. The costumes are totally beautiful.

Aladdin Photos - I just used my zoom lens, bumped up my ISO for some shutter speed and shot wide open and prayed for not too much camera shake :lmao:. I thought the Genie was hilarious too. We were there just after the Kayne West Taylor Swift stuff and he absolutely cracked me up. I love how he includes recent events into the show.

Here's some more for you and for aussietravellers....

What great photos!!!!

And they are the same actors (CM's) that we had in our show. I thought they would have a few different CM's who do it, but the show wasn't on every day when we were there so maybe they don't need too many.

But I loved seeing those photos Ms.Shuttergirl! Thank you for posting.

At Storytellers one morning at breakfast. We were the only people in the restaurant and the characters were at the door looking for people, it was so funny.

At Minnies breakfast at the Plaza, there were only about three tables in the restaurant so the characters were all hanging out beside our table fighting and dancing and clowning around, it was very entertaining!

Like most theatrical productions there is always an understudy.
As there are multiple shows more frequently there are multiple CMs.
From my multiple visits I have gathered there is one main genie who does most shows. His role is a true character role that requires great skill in delivery. I believe I have seen the same one every time.

There are definitely multiple Jasmine's, Aladdin's and Jafar's.
In your photos Ms Shuttergirl are of my preferred Aladdin and my less preferred Jasmine.
There is one Aladdin who I found very unconvincing. Ultimately the Genie makes the show but I found he detracted from the show.

Back to the photos...love them all. :thumbsup2

Aside - on the topic of the same cast.
The Cast I saw in Finding Nemo the Musical in December 07 was the same as in December 09.
Especially significant was Crush and Dory.
The voice of the guy doing Crush :worship: He is AMAZING!!!
