So Disney parks are particularly famous for being a place where you can see and meet your favourite Disney characters. They come in two types: costumed characters and face characters, and some appear frequently while others rarely.
But, has there been such thing as a Walter Disney face character? Browsing through some pictures I found this:
It is from the Share a Dream Come True parade at WDW circa 2003-4. I never saw this parade, and it is the first time -ever- I've seen someone playing the actual Walt Disney at the parks (apart from Tom Hanks for Savin Mr. Banks).
I've found other pictures of that opening float and it seems the animator is represented by a random male rather than a Walt Disney impersonator:
I am quite surprised and in my opinion it is a bit creepy/tacky to do this. Has anybody seen any other instances where a Walt face character is represented in Disney Parks?
