Family Fun Weekend Recap: Character Fan Day Weekend

This past weekend was the much-awaited Character Fan Day weekend. Park guests could take photos with many different Disney characters, most of them rarely seen in the park. Characters included the Seven Dwarfs, Daisy Duck, and Snow White with the Evil Queen. Pictured above is Pinocchio, who ran out to pose for a picture just for me!

Sketch artists were also there, sketching characters for guests. Unfortunately the line was too long for me to get one, but they were still a cool sight to see.

On Friday the event was a huge hit; I’m sure it was on Saturday as well. Rain ruined Sunday’s character day — the festival arena was actually closed off by Disneyland security for a period of time. (I’m not sure if they re-opened it.)

All of my photos below are from Friday, as Sunday was rained out. Unfortunately I was unable to get photos of all the characters, as they rotated after a period of time.

Esmeralda, Frollo and Clopin from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. I think I last saw them in the 90’s when they had a “Hunchback” show!

Pinocchio also kept a younger guest entertained by playing around the umbrellas. It was so adorable!
