    Talking Lucky Jack's Great Character Hunt

    Monday, May 2 I had an audition for the Dapper Dans. I took vacation time from work and flew down to Orlando from northeast Indiana. Cash is nearly non-existent, so luckily I had a few good things on my side: 1) a credit with AirTran, 2) as a former Disney Store CM I still had my comp park tickets, 3) I stayed at a friend's home who is a current CM at MK.

    I had a great audition! But unfortunately I didn't get cast. Look out Voices of Liberty, your next on my list!

    Since I've been to the WDW parks many times, I decided to do something different with my time, so I went searching for character meet and greets. I knew I had to see Town Square Theatre and Mickey's dressing room, but other than that, the rest of the time I would spend casually wandering the parks.

    The weather all week was absolutely beautiful, the crowds were average in size, and aside from my disappointment at not getting cast with Dapper Dans, I was enjoying the slow easy pace of wandering by myself.

    Here are some of my photos from my time at WDW parks:

    A nice CM sat me in the very first car behind the engine. All I can say is, I braved the train ride and I'll never go again!

    Re: Lucky Jack's Great Character Hunt

    I didn't find many characters in MK...odd. I didn't want to wait in the Princess line at Town Square Theater, I kept missing Capt Jack at POTC, and just had trouble finding anyone else...

    Time to hit some other parks and see who I can find...

    There seems to be an influx of people trying to upload their pics onto MC directly. No can do. You have to upload them into a photo hosting site like Photobucket, then post the links to the photos here.
