Disney Character down. Guests tend not to hear that every day.
Walt Disney World Resort guests come from near and far to see spectacular Disney attractions, shows, lands, and Disney characters. Disney World is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Each Disney park explores different parts of the magic of Disney.
Guests waiting for character meet and greets can meet different Disney princesses such as Cinderella, Tiana, Ariel, Jasmine, Elsa, and many more. Other popular character meet and greets are Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Donald Duck, Figment, Goofy, and many more.
Disney World guests eagerly await their turn to meet beloved Disney characters to capture cherished moments with autographs and photographs. However, amid the pixie dust and fairy-tale ambiance, mishaps can and do occur, creating unforgettable and often humorous memories for both guests and cast members. Some basic mishaps that happen from time to time are a princess losing a shoe or a character falling down.
Disney World Guests have seen characters send the emergency signal in need of help during parades or when guests are causing issues. Some guests have tried to undress princesses or try and remove the head from Mickey Mouse or other beloved characters.
Disney just announced a brand new meet and greet character, which has taken the parks by storm. Figment will be meeting guests in the creation lab of Journey Into Imagination With Figment. September 11th is Figment’s second day on the job and fans have been waiting hours to meet this cute purple dragon. DrewDisneyDude shared a video of poor Figment taking a tumble before starting his meet and greet. When Figment fell Disney Cast Members came to assit him making sure he was alright. Guests have been waiting for four hours or longer to meet Figment. Last year Figment popcorn buckets had guests waiting for hours to snag one.
FIGMENT DOWN 😭
