    That's certainly not reality.

    I think your gripe is that that Halloween party costs "40 bucks", but that's certainly not a charge just to see Roger. The party is so much more than that, and Roger just happened to be something they brought out for fun.

    It almost encourages Disney NOT to ever bring out any fun surprises because of gripes like yours. Much easier for them not to ever do anything fun or spontaneous so they don't have to listen to "pay 40 bucks to see a character" from you.
    While no one would attend the event for him...the fact they are bringing out a character who has nothing to do with Halloween and only in a paid event when say he could come out during Easter (or just normal days since has a ride)
    Since the only way to see him so far is at a 40 dollar event, makes me not that happy but little things like this just tease us Disney fans who don't want to support events like this and think Seeing Roger should come at a normal ticket price

    This isn't an accurate statement, by your own admission.

    As you stated, Roger Rabbit was there at Easter. And then he next appeared unannounced at the Halloween party. Easter was not a ticketed event...it was totally free. So, Roger is not brought out "only in a paid event".

    The fact is, Roger only makes extremely rare appearances. To my knowledge, he's appeared twice this year. That's hardly enough appearances to make any statements about how Disney's decided to use Roger...since it seems like he's more of a surprise extra than anything else. One time he was "Limited Time Magic" for Easter (free to everyone in the park) and the other time he was at the MNSSHP (but was not promoted or advertised that he would be there, so he was a surprise at the party).

    Now, let's look at the fact that Roger has "nothing to do with Halloween". If that's the new standard for who can and who cannot appear at the MNSSHP then a whole slew of characters shouldn't appear at the parties. What the heck does Alice and Snow White have to do with Halloween? What's Goofy have to do with Halloween? What about Mickey himself?

    At the MSSHP, some of the characters there are villains...and villains are just all lumped into Halloween because they are "evil", so even if they aren't a particularly scary villain they are still invited to the party. Then there are Disney characters who wear special Halloween colored outfits (like Mickey and Minnie do) to come to the party. But a lot of other random Disney characters are at the MNSSHP too...like Brer Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, Chip and Dale, etc. They just came to enjoy the party and have a good time.

    I'm delighted whenever Roger Rabbit is out in any of the parks. If he appears on a Tuesday, I'm not going to ask "What's Roger Rabbit got to do with Tuesdays?" or be upset that Roger didn't appear on Saturday instead, because Saturday was my birthday. I'm just going to be happy he made more than one appearance this year.

    Oh, and I would totally attend an event JUST for Roger Rabbit. In fact, if Disneyland held a big Roger Rabbit party and it was a ticketed event that featured guaranteed photo ops and other activities with Roger, Jessica, Baby Herman, Judge Doom, the Weasels and other characters from Who Framed Roger Rabbit I think I would happily splurge on a special trip out to California to attend that event. Even if it was just an evening with Roger himself, I'd still come. I happen to love that movie and this character and a special, ticketed event like that would be a marvelous treat.

    So that's at least one person who would attend an event just for Roger.

    There are not, nor have ever been rights issues. Roger is just one of hundreds of characters that once appeared who no longer do.

    And a walk around Toad existed in the 70s, I saw a picture once.

    Yes he apeared but I don't think you could take a picture with him....the fact is they push many characters out everyday like the Princesses but can't have Roger out more then two times a year?

    I'm paying 90 bucks to get into the parks...and think it would be nice to see Roger since he has his own ride...Disney does not have to do anything but I can say I don't like the way they hide characters when they have the means to have them out much more then they do

    Re: ATTENTION: Roger Rabbit Makes An Appearance At Mickey's Halloween Party!

    ORDDU: There was an article about Roger Rabbit's disappearance from the parks that was written by Al Lutz many years ago which--if memory serves--claimed that a feud between Michael Eisner and Steven Spielberg resulted in Roger's being pulled from the character meet and greet line-up. It had to do with bruised ego's and legal issues where Steven accused Michael of making decisions about Roger Rabbit without first consulting him. I don't recall the details but it did result in hurting fans of Roger Rabbit since they could no longer see him in the parks. It also meant the end to any plans for a sequel to the Roger Rabbit movie or any more shorts.

    I am going to dress my youngest son up as Roger Rabbit for Halloween. I don't have a lot to spend on costumes for my boys this year and I cannot sew to save my life. But I found him a pair of red overalls and he has a white shirt and white tennis shoes. We have white rabbit ears from some Easter pageant or something from years ago. I just need to get a blue and yellow bowtie and then find yellow gloves and get something to make a poof of orange hair between the rabbit ears and I will have a nice "Disney Bounding" Roger Rabbit outfit for my DS9. I'm pretty excited about it.

    I wish I had the body to play Jessica but I would look ridiculous trying because I am pretty overweight at the moment. My husband has a trench coat and a fedora hat so he can be Eddie Valiant and I think I might do a Betty Boop or something like that because I have a nice black dress and my sister can loan me a black curly wig. I saw a thing online about how to do body and face makeup like a black-and-white movie, so I might try that.

    Or I thought about wearing all yellow and doing some kind of checker pattern and going as Benny the cab, since he was friends with Roger and Eddie. My DS12 is too cool now to dress in a family costume and he's going to be something from Pacific Rim. His dad is handling that costume because I never saw that movie.

    I am sure you are beautiful and would make a wonderful Jessica Rabbit - but since your son is going to be Roger, that might be a little odd. Maybe you could be Roger's mom? You could do bunny ears, a red dress, and a blue and yellow hairbow, or something like that?

    Re: ATTENTION: Roger Rabbit Makes An Appearance At Mickey's Halloween Party!

    (de-lurk)

    It's great that they're bringing Roger out. I imagine that his absence is due to more than just rights issues; with the lack of any kind of a follow-up in 20 years (since that short from '93), I doubt he's a much-requested character on a daily basis. It's only us people who like rare stuff that would actually ask for him.

    I would love to see a thread (or some kind of database) where all the characters are listed that have appeared in costumed form at the parks. My grandma used to have a photo of herself at Anaheim with Prince John from the animated "Robin Hood"! Meanwhile, I've seen photos online of the Big Bad Wolf, of some female chipmunk from a Chip 'n' Dale cartoon, apparently (it wasn't Gadget from Rescue Rangers), and Goofy's son Max, among others.

    It would also be nice to have comparison photos, seeing the characters as they changed throughout the years (such as Pooh, who used to wear a honey pot on his head, but I think that's long since changed).

    Side note: I wonder how much cleaning Roger needed before they could bring him out? Yeah, he came out at Easter, too, but before that he probably sat on the shelf for 15 years or so.
