What new Character would you like to see at WDW?

Post by missynole » Sep Tue 08, 2009 7:32 am

Are there any "new" characters you would like to see brought back to the Theme Parks? Are there any "old" characters you haven't seen in years that you think would be fun to see again. For example, Dumbo used to come out at the Magic Kingdom and he was great. Also, Bernard and Bianca from The Rescuers. I used to love them as a little girl!

I don't know about any "new" characters, but I would LOVE to get a pic. with Jimney Cricket one of these visits. My friend got a pic. with him in Aug. '08 on Main St. I was so jealous, we've never even seen him!!! I also wish they would bring back Figgy and the Dreamfinder, we have a very old pic. with those two. Would love to see them make a comeback! DH has never seen them!

I pretty much have to agree 100% with you boilerbabe. We did manage to get a picture with Jimney on our visit in 2008. It was our last day so the smiles aren't that great. I definitely wish he was around the parks more. Also, I feel disney should bring back figment. He is a character that a lot of people really like. It's just a shame the attraction never has a wait.

Figment AND Dreamfinder should return to the parks. I loved Figment was he was just a puppet with Dreamfinder, but I even enjoyed the larger figment too.

I would also like to see Phineas & Ferb characters appear in the park sometime soon especially with the show being a big hit now on Disney XD.

Figment and Dreamfinder are right up there. I would love to see them come back!

If you want to see dreamfinder, just head to Disneyland Paris, he's there. He's the mayor of the western town inside the haunted mansion....sorry to hear about his head though

Hmm, would like to see more villains out or more/different dwarves out, basically have the characters out that they only really bring out at Halloween.

I would love to see the professor and captain from Treasure Planet. I think that was one of the most underrated Disney movies in recent history. My boys thought it was really cool!

The reason the attraction never has a wait because no one wants to ride that ride. It's a shame - the current Journey Into Your Imagination actually exhibits less imagination than its original incarnation. If they could overhaul the ride - bring back Dreamfinder - then maybe they could have Disney characters of Dreamfinder and Figment to greet people as they would enter to board the new and improved ride.

I'd like a whole town full of villains...a villain restaurant...maybe a villain hotel with themed rooms...nothing horrific, just villain fun...but what I would really like is Oogie at the Haunted Mansion for Halloween.

And maybe the Aristokittens...I have heard they are sometime out there, but I have never had a chance to meet them.

The Cheshire Cat gets my vote for Disneyworld. I've heard a rumor that he appears in Disneyland, but we won't make it out there anytime soon.

I agree about Dreamfinder & Figment, and I really like the idea of the Villains hotel. I'd also like to see Lewis and Wilbur from "Meet the Robinsons". Maybe they have been out, but I've never seen them. Loved that movie!

Jim and Silver from Treasure Planet, Milo and Kida from Atlantis cos both those films are generally ignored. Lion King characters.

I would love to see those characters. I never understood why Disney never marketed Treasure Planet better.

....and then he disappears.... then appears.... then disappears..... :mrgreen:

Sorry, I couldn't resist. LOL :lol: (don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm sure it's hard to pronounce.... :shock: )

Anyway, I'd also like to see practically the whole cast of characters from Meet the Robinsons. Awesome, totally under-appreciated movie, if you ask me. In fact, I don't understand why Disney hasn't yet created some kind of MTR attraction or ride. Baffles me....

Oh, and a few more of the cool characters from The Incredibles would be good, like Syndrome or Frozone. Heck, even Jack-Jack. He would make a good animatron, what with all the bursting into flame and stuff....
