Characters at Disneyland 1972
Out of all the theme parks in the world, Disneyland does best with walk around characters. The costumes are very nice and look like the chatacters. It seems there is always a line for the characters. The demand is so great, Disneyland finally created special lines and attractions for the most popular. If your young daughter is into the Princesses, you can take them to the Princess Fair in Fantasyland. If your young children are into Winnie the Pooh, the characters can be found in Critter Country. And of course Mickey's Toontown is a whole land devoted to the classic cartoon characters with Mickey's house a way to guarantee a good photo and meet and greet with Mickey. In 1972, the characters were not as popular and could be found on Main Street. The costumes do not appear to have changed much from this time period. I know there are still characters that come out on Main Street, in fact on my last trip I watched Alice, the Mad Hatter, and Pluto playing charades with a group of kids.
