Kudos to Disney Bacon for the idea! This thread is a single, unified place for us to develop a list of all characters present in Disneyland attractions. These can be original characters or characters from films, but they must be manifested in ways that are at least semi-permanent. In other words, seasonal overlays are okay, but cast members who tend to play certain roles are not. (Nothing against CMs!)
If you think of any that are not on the list - and you should at first, at least, since I'm just adding a few examples for the time being - post them, and I'll edit them into this post. And if anyone's got a problem with the format, let me know. We'll try to get this set up in a way that works for everyone.
