Flik is no longer meeting at Animal Kingdom and has been replaced by Russell and Dug from Up. While I am sad to see Flik leave at least they replaced him with two new characters who haven't been seen regularly at WDW in awhile.

Again, Clarice is a character you can regularly find at Disneyland Paris

Sad to say I have heard rumors of even more character changes at DAK... including the removal of Pocahontas and possibly several other characters (Jungle Book, Thumper/Miss Bunny)... haven't heard anything about them being replaced by other characters either Hopefully this doesn't come to pass or AK will be down to VERY few characters

DisneyMe is quite right, Clarice appears everyday currently.
She is part of the 20th anniversary celebrations and has a special wizard outfit!
In the past she appeared off and on - with persistence you could find her!

This is really shameful...Disney has so many characters to choose from...and if I am not mistaken Goofy is in four different places at once during some times of day in Animal Kingdom alone? Couldn't Flik have been kept and Goofy gotten some sort of break in exchange?

Guys i live in N.Y with this economy its not too easy for some people to get all that money to go to DLP.Thats like a dream maybe one day but shouldnt WDW see whats going on in all the other Disney Parks in the world.People like characters not the same boring fab 5 in all 4 parks at WDW everytime we spend our money to go down there.Theres 100 rare characters they could bring out one day in one of the parks thats all people ask.Even there parties they hardly ever mix it up its not a disney feeling down there lately for my family and I .

We totally know what you mean Mike! Disney doesn't come cheap, and all they seem to be doing lately is giving less, but for MORE money!
It is really annoying and sad!

It seems that Pocahontas will be staying ... however Miss Bunny and Thumper are leaving though ... I think it would be better if Miss Bunny left and Flower joined Thumper

Although Miss Bunny is cute, I agree with you, Flower would be a much better addition!

DAK is really coming across as the neglected child of the 4 WDW parks... The live animals are nice, but one could go to a zoo for that. There are only a handful of rides and a diminishing cast of characters to meet. When I made my first visit to DAK last October, meeting Pocahontas there was one of the major highlights on an otherwise uninspiring park visit.

I have to agree, DAK has become the 'well, do we want to go all the way over there or not bother' of the 4 parks when we visit, and I'm sad to say that all too often we don't bother which is a shame 'cause at the end of the day it is still a Disney park.

We hopped over briefly last spring and there was Thumper, Terk, Chipmunks, Meeko etc all taking part in a dance / games party which was fun except a lot of little kids we saw just wanted a hug or autograph and were almost being bumped out the way by dancing characters. Okay, so you can't please everyone, I know that but when there are less chars to interact with you're going to want to grab the ones you do see.

Anyway I digress, I have to admit I'm happy to see Russell and Dug but more chars would be lovely, there are so many to choose from that would suit. Didn't Gov. Ratcliffe use to be there as well? i seem to recall him strutting up and down scaring all the kids.

Although Miss Bunny is cute, I agree with you, Flower would be a much better addition!

YES!!!! =D

Philip please don't insult other members.

Mike, I do agree that WDW need to mix it up a bit. You may have noticed that from my blog posts from time to time LOL.
I know it doesn't necessarily help, but maybe if you can afford it you could visit DL one year? They have some slightly different characters (though not many I admit), and the parks there are fab too. Not as far as Paris ir the Asian resorts, but far enough to be different.
Believe me, we know how expensive Disney is. We are just in a fortunate position right now to be able to travel. It wasn't always the case, and I'm sure in the future there may come a time also when we can't do so much travelling.
I hope some day you get the opportunity!

Does Flower actually exist as a character? Is there a costume for her?

Or is this just fantasy? :0)

Flower does indeed exist, but has not been seen in many years.

There have been a number of characters that were out fairly regularly at AK that you couldn't normally find at the other parks in WDW and Flik was hard to find pretty much anywhere... why they feel like it is a good idea to get rid of a lot of them is beyond me. I am glad the Russel and Dug have been added but they have gotten rid of too many other characters... and I still dont understand why they have Goofy in two different locations.

The less characters there are out the less often we will go there... AK has a lot of great things (Safari, LotLK, Nemo, parade, etc) but after you have seen the two shows several times you dont need to see them every trip, there are only a few rides that are really great, and while I enjoy the safari it isn't something I feel I need to go on every trip or make a point of going to AK JUST for the safari. I love the parade but that is now 10 years old so I have seen that enough that I don't feel compeled to see it as much as possible anymore.
