Much better to put the same characters in three different restaurants.

Encanto character dining would sell. They’re always late to the party.

About damn time. But knowing WDW we’re probably just gaining another Adventure Friend

Walt Disney World has posted a new casting call seeking Disney Character Look-alikes for the role of Luisa as depicted in the Walt Disney Animation Studios film Encanto.

They wouldn’t just randomly put them on the schedule with no announcement…you’ll know when/if they’re coming back otherwise.

Looks like July's Schedule is out.......No Trolley Dancers!! When are they supposed to Return??? Or were they cut at the last second like Castle Dreamlights??????

Walt Disney World has a new casting call out for a Bruno Character Look-ALike.

Not in a couple of decades, as far as I know. That ended with Walt Disney Entertainment's reorganization in 2001, or so I'm pretty sure. And they only had control of characters for maybe 10-20 years - before that they were separate as well (fairly sure, sources from the early decade or so of Disneyland are hard to find, and that even extends to opening years of MK).

No Clang Clang on Main Street yet..........Sigh! We know you can do this MK!!!!!!!
