Apologies....It's still wrong to charge extra for ANY debacle..:greedy:

Wrong thread this is about the DHS villain debacle, not the MNSSHP villain debacle.

I read a review from another place on this. It was NOT good. The man said that not only did he feel he "wasted" his money, but it took time away from riding the rides and trick or treating for candy and other fun. Won't be wasting money on it. Disney is getting ridiculous with the extra charge for everything.

All I'll say is he wasn't allowed to attend the evenings festivities. He was originally on the proposed list.

Lol yeah, that was probably my selfie collage. The guy is awesome, let me take a selfie with him real quick and then others lined up after. I had seen him at the 24 hr event getting his picture with Lotso and we thought he was fantastic! He should work for Disney, just show up as Stinky Pete everyday!

Tell him I saw some photos and he did an amazing job!

I've befriended a few in entertainment. I always let them reach out to me. If they dont, then thats how it is.

That was a very good friend of mine.

Was probably the same Stinky Pete that was at the 24 Hour Disney event. There was a guest dressed as him there that looked 100% authentic. We thought he worked for Disney.

I agree, but it does reach a point of being unhealthy. I see people going to see certain ones multiple times a week on social media, and I don't think it's their friends. The absolute craziest thing I saw once was in Tokyo. A twenty something girl grabbed Donald's arm and would not let go. Security had to escort them both off stage.

I kind of relate the thing about adults seeing characters to wrestling. Wrestling fans know it's scripted and storylines are fake. They still go and watch and enjoy it. It's not like the wrestler characters exist in real life. They enjoy seeing the wrestlers and/or meeting them at the airport *cough CM Punk cough*. Those fans still go and spend millions of dollars on entertainment even though they know it is not real. Disney character fans enjoy meeting the characters. I would say for most it is the memory of meeting a favorite from their favorite movie or meeting a character that is very hard to meet or see. If someone isn't to that, that is fine. Some are and find it to be fun almost like a scavenger hunt.

It was a guest. We saw him outside of Disney Jr, he was very convincing even more so in person.
