    How Tall Are Typical Human AA's?

    Since the backdrops and props for many rides incorporate forced perspective to make things look bigger/closer/further away/etc, about how tall are typical human animatronics? I've noticed some of the pirates in the burning town scene seem pretty short. Some of the ghosts in HM seem pretty short too. And what about the three Indy AA's? Are they all the same height?

    Well, I can tell you that the Abraham Lincoln figure is "6 feet, 4 inches- nearly."

    They do seem...short, but as far as I can tell, the majority of the figures you see in Disneyland are close to life-size. If you run across photos of cast members posing with AAs at night or during refurbs, they're usually pretty similar in height, and the Jack Sparrow AAs don't look small next to the real Johnny Depp.

    Some are in proportion, but I've observed the scale to be a tad larger. I may be wrong.

    I've heard that when they mimic a real person, they do it to their exact physical size. When they are just doing characters, they make them the right size for the scene which from what I gather is 6', average human size unless they are doing minatures or something.

    The heavy gal in the Pirate's auction scene is approximately 5'2".

    I couldn't believe how tall the original Abe was on display at D23. If that's only 6'4", they did some serious forced perspective!
