Over the years, there have been many walk around characters who have come and gone at Walt Disney World. Among them is Roger Rabbit. From the late 1980s through the 1990s, Roger Rabbit could easily be found in multiple Disney parks. He was often seen with other Disney characters aboard a double decker bus at. Roger Rabbit could also be found at Disney-MGM Studios, as it was called at the time. Even my favorite Disney parade, SpectroMagic, had a place for Roger Rabbit!
Unfortunately, the Roger Rabbit walk around character at the parks didn’t last past the 1990s. He’s no longer appears at Epcot; in fact, Roger Rabbit can’t be found at any Walt Disney World park. When SpectroMagic returned to the Magic Kingdom in 2001, he had been replaced as the parade conductor by Genie from Aladdin. The only place I know of to find Roger Rabbit at Walt Disney World today is the giant figure pictured above which is located in the 1980s section of Disney’s Pop Century Resort.
I don’t know about you, but I think it’s about time Disney bring back Roger Rabbit. After all, the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit recently celebrated its 25th anniversary with a special blu-ray release. Sounds like a pretty good time to bring back this character at Walt Disney World, don’t you think? I would love to see Roger Rabbit in a parade. He was always so fun to watch in SpectroMagic back in the ’90s! Hollywood Studios also sounds like a great place for a Roger Rabbit appearance. Hopefully, Disney will bring Roger Rabbit back to the parks at some point.
