Character News and Updates From Around the Web - Random Character appearances in DLP, The Platy-Bus Tour, Buffalo Bill Parade
DisneyDan  Thursday, July 14, 2011 2:42:18 PM

Hi all,

I discovered that this week for some reason the stars of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show at Disneyland Paris have been doing a parade through Disney Village at about 6pm every day. Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley and their friends have all been there daily, riding real horses through the streets of the Village. I found this picture, but I did see more from a contact that I cannot post here. I can only assume this is a marketing thing - one of several attempts recently to try to boost numbers at the ailing show. Jon and I both personally like the show, having seen it twice now, but it has been there for many years, and I am sure most people would love to see a new show. But of course as always, it comes down to money. And with the 20th fast approaching, I'm sure DLP have more important things to worry about than Buffalo Bill.

The Platy-Bus Tour that I mentioned earlier in the week has continued it's travels, but for some reason has started headed west, and missed the East Coast completely, with the exception of NYC where it launched. So far the regular line up looks like Phineas and Ferb, plus some performers, and I DID see pictures of Perry, but I think (and I could be wrong) that he was just for the NY launch. But we can hope he does make appearances elsewhere too. The official website still continues to be useless, but the official Times Square Flickr page uploaded some pictures which might give you an idea of what is involved.

Back in Paris, and this week has seen some interesting character appearances. Gaston, who normally is seen over in the Studios, was in Fantasyland; Clopin has been out a couple of times (which isn't altogether rare, but he doesn't normally get out as often as he has been his week); and the Princesses in Town Square (despite them having a proper photolocation in Fantasyland).

Of course, I'm not complaining about all the characters being everywhere, but I do wonder sometimes why certain characters show up in certain places!

Ok, that's all for now,
