Micoofy Duck here again. I haven't been logging on in quite awhile because I've been in WDW mode. But with a new year already in full swing I expect to be taking a trip to Disneyland sometime during November/December and possibly a late summer 2007 trip as well.
I've noticed there's been alot of buzz around this area of MiceChat regarding new additions to the parks and I'd like to take some of your focus onto a new topic of discussion.
In my last Disneyland trip back in July 2006 I had some trouble meeting characters because I chose NOT to wait in lines, you know, the kind that comes with summer crowds and all. I also was a first time visitor to the Disneyland Resort and tried to do everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, in a matter of four days.
By the way, four days isn't enough time to see and do everything. Now I know this very important fact. I did notice on my last morning of my four day stay at the Grand Californian Hotel that a family was checking in with the intention of staying 7 days at Disneyland. I was so jealous and wished I had planned a longer trip. Don't let ANYONE tell you that 7 days is too long for a Disneyland trip!
Anyways, in my next visit to the Disneyland Resort I plan on staying on property for an extended 6-7 day stay and WILL make time for character interactions.
My big request for all the chatters of MiceChat.com is to share their Disneyland Character interaction stories for everyone of interest. I'd hope that if I make time for Disneyland characters that my time with them will be well spent. WDW characters are an experience but I do hear that Disneyland tops WDW character interactions.
Now I'd like to find out from Disneyland visitors who go far more than I what a Disneyland character interaction is all about and what can come from meeting a Disney character inside Disneyland.
Photos are welcome! Hopefully many of story contributors can provide a visual aid for this post. ;o)
