Question Characters with nicknames??

I wanted a list of nicknames of characters in Disneyland. I know about Spieling Peter, Huggy Pan and GrassHopper Hatter, but I wanted to know if there were any more. I might go to Disneyland in November so I would prefer if they still worked at the park. A list like this would be greatly appreciated:

Spieling Peter (No longer active)
Huggy Pan (No longer active)

Thank you!

Now I feel like I'm crazy!

Google "Spieling Peter" and you will see what I mean. He is the most famous of the nicknamed characters

Thank you! I already know about this specific Peter Pan, but I want to know about other characters, including Alice and the Mad Hatter.

Ok, I think I understand what you are getting at. Certain CMs with a particular personality. Other than Maynard, I've never heard of the others. But here's one Sherry discovered. I'll call him In Your Face Pluto!
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....2945179&page=2

Scroll down the page until you come to picture of Pluto in her face. I think that's one, I'd want to avoid.

I don't know if Maynard is still there. Oh, there is Chef Oscar who is an old time CM who comes out to visit with the guests at... Oh, I forget the name of the restaurant. Someone will know. The name just went out of my head. On Main Street.

Ok, Ok..... OK

Here is the origin. There is a large group of followers of the Face Character Cast Members at Disneyland on YouTube.

Many YouTube posts were by a Disneyland Cast Member, Brianna Garcia. She is a talented artist, but no longer works at Disneyland. Her YouTube videos had nicknames for the different castmembers she posted videos of. These names stuck, and others used the same nicknames in their videos.

Go to YouTube and search for "Hatters Disneyland" or "Alice Disneyland". There are videos showing the nicknames.
Links:
http://youtu.be/Ty0HbmUY8PE
http://youtu.be/ctBocE_X-8o

Basically, There is only one Alice, Cinderella, Mad Hatter, Snow White, Peter Pan, etc.
They may have slightly different personalities depending where and when you meet them.
Do not ask about or use a nickname, each is THE Alice, Tinkerbelle, etc
.

Hatter Nicknames: Reggie, Storyteller, Squishy, Psycho (My Favorite), Silver, Maddy, Grasshopper, Epic, Smokey, Sweet, ----- Hatter.

Alice Nicknames: Parade, Sassy, Babydoll, Cindy, Cheasire, Coral, Carebear, Demure, Repunzel (Before the Movie), Little, Harmonic, ----- Alice.

Most no longer work there. The ones still working at Disneyland include Storyteller Hatter and Demure Alice/Tinkerbell.

Speiling Peter was the most famous. In real life he is a talented Actor (If you see the current KAYAK TV ad, he is the one getting the Atomic Wedgie.
Last month Speiling Peter Pan married Carebear Wendy/Alice...

Currently nobody is naming them, including Brianna. The current most followed character is "Gingersnap" Alice/Wendy. She is actually featured on the offical Disneyland web site in several photos.


Here is a link where I ask her about the Photo...

Thanks 1951- I had never heard of such things until the OP brought it up. I've never really paid a lot of attention to characters.
