    Has anyone else met this lovely woman on Buena Vista Street? :)

    I wish I knew what her name was But she was definitely a highlight of our trip last week, which is saying a lot since she is a non-Disney face character.

    We saw her walking onto Buena Vista Street for the first time, crouched down on the floor with her camera that she totes around, commenting on people who walked by as if they were the latest stars and she was expecting them to be there

    "good....good....oh, you're here, check....alright....very good....keep moving....nice....good shot...marvelous...."

    we laughed at that and kept walking.
    It was on the second day of our trip that we encountered her yet again on Buena Vista street but this time she was interacting more with guests. My boyfriend and I were wearing shirts that said our names. She ran up to us with her hand to her head and said

    "hello, hello, oh I'm getting a strong "g" vibe from you, oh you're name is....it is....GAB! And yours...it's with a "c" i'm getting a "c"....is it chuck?"
    my boyfriend: "nope"
    "no, no, of course it;s not, its;....CARL! yes, Carl, how lovely to meet you both!"

    she spent the next 5 minutes talking with us explaining how she is a psychic and also a photographer.

    We took a picture with her, and then she said "oh, you simply MUST have a picture of me taking a picture of you!"
    We were laughing so hard, but we took it. What a character. Kudos to whoever this woman was, I'm 99% sure she has broadway/acting training. We made sure to compliment her at the new guest services in DCA, because she really made our day

    Her name is Phiphi! My friends and I wanted to take a picture with Donna the Dog Lady and she hollered across the way to Phiphi and they had an amazing interaction while we watched them go at it. They planned a lunch date and took pictures with us. It was wonderful.

    She was great fun.
    She chased down a little girl and had her pose for her. She went on and on about how she must be a dancer because she posed just like one. Several guests had her autograph their books..

    I have enjoyed all the characters on BVS! They did a great job choosing the people to be cast as the characters, they are all very quick thinkers and very funny!

    We ran into her briefly on the 15th. I am just so glad that all of the characters have such vivid personalities, it really adds to the experience.

    The citizens of BVS are amazing! I shot some vidoe of two of them yesterday. And I am hoping to get the other two this week. THey are ownderful characters and totally immersive. You can ask them anything and they have a back story for it. I willl et you know when I'm done editing the videos.

    I love this! I will make sure to talk to her when I get to BVS (eventually).
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

    this actually isn't the same woman, as you can tell by the picture. But hopefully there are other actresses who play the role just as well!
