I don't think so. This is Bowler Hat Guy:


This was taken at DCA, but he looked the same at MK. The PP probably saw one of the streetmosphere characters, but I'm not familiar with one that wears a bowler hat.

Our most obscure character meet was at the studios and it was Milo and the girl (can't remember her name) from Atlantis. It was in a shaded sitting area in front of the Sorceror's hat.

Red face Characters in obscurity!

I have many obscure favorites. I met 2 of the 3 Little Pigs (Fiddler Pig and Practical Pig) and I was shocked, as I never knew they were even meetable characters!



Other obscure favorites are Thumper, Hyacinth Hippo, Madame Upanova the Ostrich, The Snow White Queen as the witch, Goliath the Gargoyle, Pain, Panic, and Phoebus.

Princess Kida I am so jealous. I love Atlantis, I wish it had done better so those characters still made appearances.

For myself rares I've met:
Hercules
Megara
Brer Rabbit
King Louie

Talking Who was this character?

But I have no clue who he was!!! Big dark animal, maybe a cat, with a crown. I thought it was Prince John, but he didn't look like the picture on Meeko's site. Anyone know who he was? He made my day - but it happened so fast I couldn't get a picture.

Well, if you are truly bored, you can go to my site in my signature and scroll through every single character and see if this "dark animal" is there! All the pages link together, so if you go to a character's page, it's easy to click on "next character" and scroll through the whole list. No need to return to the main page over and over. And I am curious, as I am not sure who you are describing! Beast makes appearances in France, but he doesn't have a crown. Oh well - wonder who it was!

Several years I got to have my picture made with Clopin in a store in France. He's one of my favorite characters.

Launch Pad behind the Judges tent next to the train depot. DD4 wasn't too thrilled by him as you can tell, there were several other obscure characters there too but we left after him.

Hugs for Eeyore - great site!!! I looked through all your pics but didn't see my mystery character. I know Beast, it wasn't him. It seemed like he was from an old movie like Robin Hood. Maybe it was Prince John, but like I say I remember him darker than that.

Maybe I just imagined him ;-)

Hercules, Meg, and Governor Ratcliffe were probably the rarest for me.

Hollywood, 1939. Amidst the glitz and glitter...the Hollywood Tower Hotel was a star in its own right.

I was going to say Mulan but I see now that she isn't as rare as I'd thought. The only time I saw her was in China. She was standing by herself, no line, when a couple came up to her and asked her to take THEIR picture (without her) with China in the background. She, of course, was very nice and took the picture but my sister and I were horrified and we quickly ran up to get our picture with her. It's one of our favorite pictures; she was so great. The couple have thought that she was just a CM dressed in traditional chinese clothing?
