Nice meeting you, BB Nathan! And, the important thing is not how many characters you've met, but that you're having fun doing it!

Hello everybody,

First of all, I'd like to say "Thank You" to two administors of Character Central website, which give us power to explore the world of hunting disney characters. It's my pleasure for meeting everybody here.

My name is Lawrence, live in Hong Kong. I've been a character hunter for 4 years. Hong Kong Disneyland brings me to the wonderful world of disney. However, due to the limited space of Hong Kong Disneyland, also a very very limited mumbers of Disney Characters in HKDL, I mainly rely on the special occasion of Hong Kong Disneyland. For example, Beauty & the Beast and other Prince in Chinese Valantine day , Pixar friends in summer events, magical moment in "VIP Star Guest" programme, and villians in Haunted Halloween etc.. However, it is still a big differences when compare with the friends here. For my limited experience in Hong Kong, I start to explore the other Disneylands since 2008. I will be in Florida in early April, which is my first visit in WDW.

Lastly, I'm so sorry for my poor standard of English~ Good luck for character hunt~

Hi all!

My name is Jelle, I'm from Belgium. My girlfriend and I visited Disneyland Paris several times, last year we've went to Walt Disney World. And now (June 3th - 5th) we're going to see how the original park looks like, as we're travelling through California.

As a huge characterfan I've always liked the blogs from Charactercentral. So now it was time to join! You can also find me as a moderator on cafemickey.com (a Dutch Disneyforum).

Hope to find a lot of characterinfo here and perhaps we'll meet in Paris one day. Our next trip to the French Magic Kingdom is from June 16th - 18th.

Greetings to you all!

Welcome, Jelle! I'm Loren and am annual passholder at the original Disneyland park in Anaheim, CA. I just wanted you to know that you're going to be coming at just the right time as Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, Ariel's Undersea Adventure, Goofy's Sky Scool and Paradise Gardens open on June 3. Also, by that time, our much anticipated Soundsational Parade will be hitting Disneyland Park. So, there will be much excitement.

Let me know if you have any questions about meeting characters at Disneyland. Unlike other parks, meeting characters can be a little sparse, but I generally write a weekly character update on the Disneyland Forum here at Character Central.

Greetings!

My name is Wade. I'm a corporate worker bee for a company based out of the Seattle area and recently discovered how much fun it is to track down characters. During a recent family reunion/vacation to WDW, we had a competition to see who could find the most. My team found 81 unique characters! Needless to say, I'm hooked.

We're actually heading out again in a couple weeks (May 5th through 10th) and will be hunting down several who eluded us in November. With any luck, we'll find some. In other words, I'm eager to see the trip report from Dan and Jon's most recent trip!

I'm really hoping to find Meeko, Brer Rabbit, and Snow White's Prince... not to mention dozens of others.

My name is Gordon and my avatar is of my cocker spaniel Tasha 2.0. I too have been a lifelong Disney fan.

I also have traveled our planet. I was a Pan Am steward for 12 years, travel industry executive, Caribbean wholesaler, and I am a partner with a global travel company. After winning "Best Travel Website" from a major US travel trade magazine in 1998, I began developing website for other travel companies. These have included American Express Travel, Delta Airlines, Disney Cruise Lines, and many travel agencies.

I have been disabled for over 15 years now, and have had the great pleasure of using two cocker spaniels as my service animals, both of whom have saved my life on several occasions. In October 1998 I was onboard the Disney Wonder on a back-to-back cruise with Tasha, she was the first to come aboard, and Mickey himself came to welcome us onboard, along with the Captain and several Disney executives. The inaugural cruise was so exciting for me, and Tasha was on her best behavior.

Tasha crossed the Rainbow bridge in 2009, Tasha 2.0 came into my life 6 weeks later. with Tasha's passing I wanted to do something to honor her commitment to her so I decided to create a web site – Mickey’s Fan Club. Mickey was my first cat ever, right after my Disney Cruise with Tasha we went into a local pet store, there was a cat adoption event and when I saw a kitten with a hidden Mickey I knew I had to have him. You can read more about all of my pets and more on my new website – http://MickeysFanClub.com

[font='Tahoma','sans-serif']I hope to see you all there soon![/font]

Hi Loren, thanks for your enthusiastic reply! We were already informed of the new openings in June, so we planned our 3 days of Disney Magic right around these days. Of course we could always use some tips and tricks for meeting the characters. Actually I have a few questions about the park and characters, perhaps we can email so that this topic doesn't get spammed . You always can send an email to voodoochild37@hotmail.com.

Question on Belleboy character rules: I usually take a vacation at Walt Disney World followed by a Disney Cruise. If I meet Mickey at the Magic Kingdon, then meet him again at Disney's Castaway Cay, is that one or two characters? How can Mickey be at the Kingdom and in the Bahamas at the same time?

Yeh, easy response! By our rules, it's still the same Character. Once you've Met Mickey, no matter how many times you Meet him or no matter in how many places you Meet him, he is still the same Mickey Mouse! So he only counts as one! Big Grin

And yes, Jon is spot-on - Mickey appearing to be in so many places at once is simply his incredible Magic deceiving you! Big Grin
