    Sven & Olaf in Disneyland?

    Apologies if this has been asked already or if the answer is generally common knowledge but are there currently meet and greet costumes for the Frozen characters Olaf and Sven?
    I have only seen Olaf in plastic form within the parks and Sven not at all. If they are around I would love to see pictures.
    Thanks

    There are no costumes for either right now.

    Thanks Ssaamm. Just like the merchandise that they cannot keep up with demand for, Disney seem to be missing a real opportunity here. I assume that the upcoming ice show will see both characters come to life....

    For Disney on Ice I presume they will, but that is run completely separate from the parks and they have a ton of costumes that will never appear in any park.

    Indeed but this is surely just another aspect of the curse of Disney's underestimation of Frozen's popularity. I would be very surprised if these characters haven't appeared in the parks by Thanksgiving....

    I doubt Sven will ever make it to the parks, I could see Olaf coming though. Kristoff recently debuted at WDW although he doesn't do meet and greets.

    I hope they do Kristoff for meet and Greet and hope it will not be for the Halloween parties cause that wouldn't be fair or right when alot of people like me can't go to these Halloween party events. Olaf I really can't see him beening a walk around character like some of the others. His shape is so different that he would look weird looking. Sven is another I can't see him as a walk around. I was just picturing in my mine how Horace Horescoller and Clarabell are and I just can't see Disney doing Sven in there verison wouldn't look right.

    If Sven came trotting out like one of those 2-person horse costumes... I would laaaaaaaaaaaaugh and laaaaaaaaaaaaaugh and laaaaaaaaaaaaaugh!

    I'm giggling right now just thinkin' about it.

    Brings up a good point.

    How many 2-person character outfits HAVE their been in Disneyland Character history? I mean full, capable of handling MnG duty costumes, not parade unit outfits.

    I'm drawing a blank. Anyone?

    *edit*

    For the moment I'm not including the distant remote rigs such as Lucky, I'm not sure they considered that rig ready for more than it got used for. Talking "Suit up, you're the back half" style two-person-physically-in-one-costume.

    Re: Sven & Olaf in Disneyland?

    To me Sven in a coustom is more like how we never have seen the likes of Lady,Tramp or Bambi in the park. It be to weird for them to be on two legs and not four. I still really get it with Pluto either I mean he is sopost to be a real dog on four legs but some how with Pluto Walt pold it off with him. But with the other 4 I message I can't seen them ever beening walk around characters.

    Re: Sven & Olaf in Disneyland?

    Some 4 legged Disney creatures have indeed appeared in DL.

    Adult Simba has been in at least a couple major Parades. And they did a great job with him.

    Pumbaa has also appeared in at least Parade of Dreams.

    Heck in 2 of the parades, there was a huge rhino, that took 2 people to "walk"

    Although less impressive, Rutt and Tuke made it to DL for it's 50th

    Maximus (Tangled) is in WDW's Magic Kingdom Parade (although a little stiff)

    I would love to see several of these characters have special photo ops, (like Bambi, Thumper, Pongo, Perdita, Dumbo and Timothy, etc.

    They could do it with puppets, aa's, and they could EASILY ADD MAGIC PHOTOS of ALL their Characters. It's beyond me why they haven't capitalized on that, yet.

    To me having puppet characters out isn't the same u have people that hold them with sticks. As for the likes of Simba to me he looks more like an AA then a walking character and that goes the same with Pumbaa. Thumper has been out. During Easter time by Thunder Range if you remember.

    You can "meet" Olaf in a Magic Shot taken by PhotoPass photographers.
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".
