    I am curious as to how you found out it was a Wonderbra, as opposed to any other type of bra...just how good of a glimpse did you get? And how did this situation happen?

    Re: Are Female masked- Characters all female and visa versa?

    My brother and I were once in the Animation building making voices for the Bambi cartoon when Minnie came up. Listening to my brother attempting to make the voice of Thumper is pretty funny... and Minnie had to choke back a laugh. It was no girly laugh either.

    No forgiveness required, I totally agree. Alices tend to be a little pudgy or not very cute. We are talking about a perky, petite, blond-haired, blue-eyed young girl. I don't know how Disney can screw that up but it's usually Ariel or Jasmine who are the good looking ones. It's probably because Ariel and Jasmine have to be half-naked whereas the more prudish Alice pretty much covers up from neck to knee. But regardless, they need to start hiring those types of blue-eyed blondes who make you feel all good inside when they smile at you (I'm talking non-sexually here). Guys you know, there's a type of blue-eyed blonds who could melt Antarctica with their warm smiles...and yet Disney can't seem to find even one of them to play Alice.

So, Minnie can be a boy, Donald can be a girl, etc.


    Hope this helped to clear up any confusion....
    I'm sorry you only added to the confusion....

    Mickey, Minnie, Donald and the whole gang are not characters, Donald is a real Duck, Mickey and Minnie are real mice and so on. how can you say they are played by someone.

    When I was at DL last Nov. I had lunch at Ariels Grotto, no one can tell me that the princesses there were not real. just for the record I am 51 years old and I know real princesses when I see them, and let me tell you they were real............

    Re: Are Female masked- Characters all female and visa versa?

    I was practically ran out of town on a rail when I suggested in a thread that when it came to face characters, DL vs WDW, DL was better. When I showed people pictures of my WDW trip, they flinched at some of the photos. Thats all I'm sayin`.
    It doesn't matter who is in the costume as long as they convey the magic and the fantasy. Although I do know for a fact that WDW has used men in female face character roles in the park parades. If you slap a wig, gown and some lipstick on a pretty boy, whose to know.
    And remember folks, this is show business and there are a lot of people living 'alternative lifestyles' and working throughout the parks who may be more than happy to fill the role.

    Well, all I know is that princesses must be a size 8 or 10. I know nothing about height requirements. It seems that most are taller than 5'1'' (maybe like 5'4'' ish...)

    In Fantasmic!, Maleficent is a male because the costume and everything is all very heavy.

    There is no way that the princesses are a size 8 or 10. I am a size 5 and most are way smaller than me. I would say most are about a size 3... or less for Jasmine and Ariel.

    Sorry that Alice is ugly. There is no cute in her at all. I've also have seen some not all but some Jasmine to be ugly to.

    Now this Snow White Yahoo! Photos - bluegenieace's Photos - Photo 37 she is a hotty. And yes that is me with her.

    Well now that you went and said that, I had to take down the link. But hey. Different strokes for different folks. I thought my Alice was cute as a bug.

    And your Snow White is ok too, but not NEAR as cute as my Alice. As of two weeks ago, ALL CM's are beautiful. :

    So, there is nothing to "blow the whistle" at. These tours are for guests 16 and up and are designed to show inner workings of the park.

    BTW: the characters we saw that were headless were Eyeore and Tigger. When they saw us they (intentionally) put one EACH OTHER'S head. Then they put on a little show for us.
    Disney would have never ever offered such tours in the past. Doing so is a short-sighted way to turn a quick profit.

    This is all very interesting. James B. Stewart had to get special permission to reveal in his 2005 book, DisneyWar, that Goofy was an actor in a costume, but at WDW they're giving out behind-the-scenes tours that show Eeyore and Tigger with their heads off! Weird.

    Re: Are Female masked- Characters all female and visa versa?

    not to ruin the "magic", but i for one know its truly body type and not gender. my boyfriends' sister was: buzz lightyear, eeyore, tigger, tweedle dee, pluto. so....as you can see - she's a girl and she played ALL "male" characters.

    its a nice thought though.
