    They need Wendy out. You rarely see her. Peter Pan is always out on his own.

    I see Tinkerbell WAY WAY WAY too much! Disney really over uses her! And BTW that's the reason you don't see Wendy. Tink finally killed her!

    Too much Burt and Mary Poppins.

    I miss the mice from Cinderella and where are the characters from all the movies like Gurgi? When was the last time you saw even a Wall-E cut out? Where are the stars of Treasure Planet, Black Cauldron, Atlantis, Tron, Ratatouille, Bambi, Fantasia, and other movies?

    Re: Characters at the parks?

    I think they should incorporate more of the PIXAR characters from the new films. Some might be difficult (Nemo, Cars) but unless there is a parade, you hardly see the PIXAR characters as much. And I think it is a mistake to try and separate the parks and characters at Disneyland-------DCA = Pixar Disneyland= classic characters. Althouth you will see Buzz Lightyear at the Magic Kingdom.
    WDW does a pretty good job of incorporating both.

    Re: Characters at the parks?

    There was a fantastic CM who used to play Alice in the early 2000's and occasionally I would also see her playing Wendy.

    She used to be really terrific friends with my 3 year-old daughter and would have terrific interactions with her regardless of which character she was playing.

    In all my dozens of visits to Disneyland I have never had any luck seeing Donald Duck. I don't know why he's been given such short shrift but it's very frustrating for those of us that are big Donald fans.

    Bear in mind my opinion is based on my experiences as an Annual Passholder from 2001-2006. I moved out of So Cal in 2006 so if things have changed since then let me know.

    The only time I've seen Donald are in parades. Once at Disneyworld I did see Donald out for a meet and great but the line was crazy long so I missed my chance.

    Donald was out last month when I was there here is that pic.

    As for me I would like to see more of the Princes and also Big Bad Wolf and the 3 Little Pigs. I've meet Big Bad a few years ago for Hollween but never the Pigs.

    Re: Characters at the parks?

    Thanks. Wow that's awesome. You're very lucky. I was there in April and although we had tons of Pluto, Goofy, Chip. Dale, Minnie and Mickey sightings there was no sign of Donald. Good to know it's not totally impossible. I'll keep trying and hoping.

    Maybe next time I'll make a few stops at the Info Booth by the Main Street hub to see if I can track him down.

    Anybody here ever get to meet & greet Pooh characters other than the usual three over by the exit of "Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh"? I once saw Piglet out doing meet and greets about five years ago but that was the only time I saw any Pooh character beyond Tigger, Eeyore and Pooh. My daughter would love to see Rabbtit, Owl and Kanga/Roo.

    I'd also love to see the Pinocchio characters. I used to see Stromboli over by Small World every once in a while but I never saw the other characters from that movie.
