    Re: Disney Characters Getting OUT of Character?

    A few years ago my wife and I (no kids) were eating lunch at Ariel's Grotto where all the princesses come around to your table. I did get scolded by of the princesses for eating a salmon sandwich in front of Ariel. she told me "that eating fish in front of Ariel is just not right."

    When we were leaving Ariel's Grotto I stooped to talk to the Royal Page, after a moment I asked him if his title was the royal page, his reply was yes sir it is.

    I then asked him if a better title would be the ROYAL fu@@#** BOUNCER. HE TURNED AROUND FOR A MOMENT THEN LOOKED AT AND SAID. "why yes sir it would be the truth" he had a hard time not laughing, he then said in a very soft voice, this is the first time I have ever heard that one. I then thanked him and said have a very nice day.

    Yeah it's normal I had that happen to me before. Once with Aurora and the other with Suzy the Mouse from Cinderella. The CM didn't know how to work a ipad that this person had to take photos so Aurora step out from her spot to show the CM where to click the button at to take pictures. And with me I handed my cel phone to a CM and he didn't know how to work it so Suzy came over and show him how to work my phone. So yeah characters do know how to work a camera.

Last year, DL had 5 Mickeys meeting at once Toontown, Main St, NOS Bayou Bash, Jamboree, and BVS but at least you cant see more than one at a time.
    Would have been 8 since 4 Mickeys meet in Toontown.

    I've seen videos of them know what cameras are, and I suppose that would make sense, since they meet so many guests a day, so it's natural that one would have shown them what it was. But in these videos, they don't appear to know what YouTube is.

    I am fairly sure that you can see Mickey in the Soundsational Parade, and at the same time, he'd be doing Meet n Greet in his own house in Toontown. I haven't personally confirmed this, but logically speaking, pretty sure. (Disneyland, CA.)

At first my sister and myself thought it was someone who snuck the elaborate costume into the park and changed in the stall, but nope, we saw the same Belle a few minutes later in a meet and greet with a handler. While she never broke character it was shocking to see her in a guest bathroom. Talking to a friend who is a lead later, she confirmed that this was WAY out of allowed behavior and could result in termination for the "friend."

    Hopefully not too recent since the powers that be read this site...

    I think it depends on the CM's interpretation of the character. I've had some that are very appropriate for the time of the story that they are in while others will go out and openly mention like hashtags, social media, etc. to you and with the "social media inspired" merchandise that Disney has been releasing recently, I honestly would not be surprised if more CM's started catching on to it,

    Also, some character CM's are very up to date on what is going on in the Disney fan community as I met Ariel once wearing a D23 Convention lanyard and we had a pretty good chat about the convention and what was going on at this years convention.

    Re: Disney Characters Getting OUT of Character?

    I suppose the knowledge of technology depends on the character and how they are directed to handle it? I can't remember which thread it's in, but I remember someone talking to Captain America at the M&G, and saying that Captain was totally confused when the conversation was about texting and the Internet. Which makes sense since he's from the 40s and all.

    You'd think he'd be up to date now that he's in current times again...

    That's what I would think, though him being old fashioned was a running joke in the Avengers so I guess they could keep "running away" with it.

    I ask because when I worked at a show years ago, one of the actors worked out a signal with me that basically meant "please come and help/get me out of here now" when he was meeting people after the show. And he did invoke the signal once or twice when someone made him very uncomfortable, and I got to be the "bad guy" and tell the guest that he was needed backstage.
    I think if you're a face character you wouldn't need to do the signal, just tell the character host. The "signal" I see the fur characters do is cover their eye and raise their hand.

    Re: Disney Characters Getting OUT of Character?

    I went last year around the time before school started (best time to go) and I went to see Aladdin and Jasmine. I drew pictures for them and had them signed it and they decided to draw small pictures for me in my signature book. So Aladdin drew a lamp and Jasmine decided to draw Carpet. I couldn't see how she was drawing it, but at some point she turned to Aladdin and laughed, saying rather loudly, "I completely screwed that up!" in front of me and the line of people waiting to see them. I tried my best not to laugh. XD

I was wearing a necklace with pendant from a series called Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan while my friend was wearing a full metal alchemist pendant on her neck.
    Captain Hook took one look at each of us before pointing to my pendant giving a thumbs up then looking at her pendant and gave a thumbs down. This immediately had both of us cracking up at this gesture from the captain and it made quite the memory lol
    i was eating at the Plaza Inn once with a friend who was wearing a Dragonball Z shirt. Eeyore took one look at it and mimed the Kamehameha. we got a picture of him doing it, it's amazing.
