I agree with most of the sentiments here. . . I was excited for photopass day when I first heard about it when they started what two years back. Then I looked at the offerings this year and was bummed. We were already planning on going Saturday and might have turned it in to an overnight trip but the offerings just didn't appeal enough.

The fact that 90% of the set times aren’t published helps

Their enthusiasm and animation is incredible. I'm not sure if WDW just doesnt care or if it's too hot but over there their movements are very believable. The way they walk and wave to you. Over here it's the same "wave unenthusiastically, put hand over mouth to express laughter or surprise."

Tokyo character performers are on another level. It's incredible to watch.

Oh jeez forgot about that

After going to TDR, the entire m&g system at WDW sucks. I dont care to meet the characters but the enthusiasm there along with the interesting system really made me think I was meeting the 3 little pigs, and not Fred, the bored sweaty college kid.

Oh really?? Well then how do they stretch their fingers out so long genius?? That's what I THOUGHT

You don’t “train for Jafar”

There were more characters last year but I think the hours for each character were much less. This at least allows for a chance at meeting them if you're willing to wait in a long line. They also have people trained for Cruella and Jafar for the Halloween party so they may as well get some more use out of the costumes while they are out. Sadly we came home this year the day before this as I would have headed over to meet the jungle book characters. We didn't think it was worth sticking around longer just for this event.

Exactly.

By having a plethora of characters each and every day, throughout each day, in each park, the lines and "specialness" of the appearance would likely significantly lessen.

I only hold them accountable inasmuch they have yet to figure out a way to monetize the characters

Kman101Aug 19, 2018

OK. I blame both. You don't see how poor management has led to characters being so in-demand they don't even want to be bothered? Why is there insane lines? Because Pinocchio isn't regularly out. Like he was 10 years ago. Like Clarabelle and Horace were. Like Hook and Smee were. How can you not also hold management accountable? I know you seem to look down on the guests who visit WDW but the demand is there because whoever controls these things has created this problem. Not the guests. But they don't help, either.

There’s insane lines for Pinocchio today. I don’t blame management anymore I blame the guests
