    Right now Disney is bringing out the "old characters" a different group per week. This week is was characters from Pinocchio... friends of ours are there and keep sending photos with the old ones. Too cool.

    I've never had anyone say anything rude while waiting for a character, but then we don't do that often. Mostly we just walk by. I am NOT a photo person so you couldn't pay me to stand still to take my picture.






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!

    Occasionally I will get my photo taken with a character, but usually it's push Caitlin forward. I would ignore the adults, just because they aren't young in their hearts, their loss!

    I do remember the bus Keith from about 2002 in Epcot, and they stopped EMH in favour of the characters in the resorts didn't they? Can't say we ever sought them out purposefully.

    definitely agree John!

    did they? I thought Extra magic hours came out to replace the extra character ops but I can't really remember I must admit

    we were at all star movies at christmas when the characters turned up and I must admit the atmosphere was really great

    I remember they had e-ride night at the magic kingdom if that's what you meant? Actually although it was a separately ticketed event, it did offer a very empty park. I think it was limited in terms of guests and was a lot less busy than emh

    I'm sure there was a huge hoop de do about the EMH being cancelled, it was in the slow time after 9/11. I do remember the eticket thing though. I think maybe EMH was called something else...early entry or something?

    Actually it was in June 2001, remember the disney club too

    Taken from another site

    Upon reading a little newsletter for the Disney Club, I noticed a blurb about Early Entry. It said that on select days, a caravan of characters would visit certain resorts. This was a compromise of some sorts for losing Early Entry days. Here's the article:

    "Disney's Character Caravan is one of WDW Resort's newest and most convenient ways to meet everybody's favorite pals. On certain mornings, wonderful Disney Characters appear at participating WDW Resort Hotels. The caravan is a memorible way to start the day as the characters give Guests a warm send off right to their resort.

    To give Guests a better chance to meet with Disney characters, this new kind of cherished memory replaces Early Disney Theme Park Entrance (Surprise Mornings) with brand new morning magic--bringing the characters everyone loves right to them.

    Disney's Character Caravan is exclusively for Guests at selected WDW Resort Hotels. . ."
