    Congratulations!
    Thanks

    In 1976 I was in Tomorrowland on Autopia that summer, but my shift included guest control for the parade. I met my suffragette through a friend in parades, where I started in Christmas of '74.

    Re: Stalking Characters/Cast Members at Disney?

    When I worked there we didn't have a lot of AP's, and there weren't even a lot of people on multi-day tickets, so I'd have my occasional stalker, but I never really had to worry about seeing them them after that one day. Usually it was a group of girls, often times pretty young (junior high or so). Sometimes all they really wanted was a free churro, but I did have a few who asked me to show them around the park after my shift was over. Most of the time I think that it was more about them wanting to tell their friends later on that they hit on "the churro guy". There were times when I was annoyed, but there was never a time where I felt uncomfortable.

    Poor Peter Pan always seems to have groups of teenage girls around him when he's out now, sometimes they seem to be as bad as the pirates chasing after him!

    I believe why they have a prince with a princess now when walking around, the princess to shoo off the creepy women, the prince to shoo off them creepy guys
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    I have a favorite dancer in Mickey and the Magical Map and sometimes I will watch the show a couple of times a day to see him dance. I don't think that would be considered stalking, but sometimes I do wish that the Mapmakers had a meet and greet so I could get a photo with him and tell him how much I appreciate his commitment to the role and his high energy.

    Ah yes, the Mad T Party band. They have a...how shall I say this...passionate fanbase.

    Having a favorite Cast Member is one thing. Needlessly devoting your park time to that one CM is another. For instance, my sister has some favorite Aladdins from DCA, and I've got some favorite Mapmakers as well, and a few favorite friends of face characters.

    It's fun to play "Are they here today?" as you're passing through or experiencing the attraction that CM is a part of, but if that becomes what your park time consists of, then... I really don't know what else to say.

    I didn't think so...but I'd imagine that is why they always have a CM escort close at hand. Someone here mentioned Esmeralda was harassed enough that the character was pulled, someone else mentioned a guest who tried to kiss Ariel, and I've heard of Jasmine being harassed, too. I was also told by a former face character that one of the reasons Ariel is never out as a mermaid is because of attempts to pull down her costume (although I know it's a body suit with shells, not a bra on its own, so they weren't successful). And there have been people posting here about trying to get the princesses to meet them after work...so there seems to be a lot of harassment leveled at both genders.

    I think the reason Ariel doesn't meet in fins is more a space issue than anything else. She would need her own dedicated meet and greet space, whereas with legs she can meet anywhere. She did also (and still does in Orlando and Tokyo) meet with only a bra on and no body suit. I don't think the Hunchback of Notre Dame was ever popular enough to have Esmeralda out, that is probably more of a reason why you don't see her. She still meets somewhat regularly in Paris and Tokyo.

    I'll dig out the old photo albums but I know I have a picture with Quasi himself from DCA early years (as well as Kronk and Kuzco). But I'll try to find the pictures with Ariel from when she had her own meet and greet location

    If you Google 'Ariel Disneyland' just about all of the photos that come up, that were taken in her old Grotto, have her in just a bra.

    Is it stalking if you show up at their house in the middle of the night asking for photos and an autograph?
    "You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    I have pictures of Ariel with just the shells and the body suite. The only time she had the body suite on was when it was cold out or the winter time. Here are some old photos with her.

    Just the shells.
