  • GOOD face characters

    We've been debating about bad face characters, but what about GOOD face characters?

    IMHO, and I know littlecricket agrees with me, but I think the Alices are great at DL.

    Who do you think are good face characters?

    The Mary Poppins' are GREAT!

      Great face characters that I've seen:
      Tarzan, Mulan, Ariel, Princesses, Alice... Last several years, Mary Poppins has been very good.,
      Ice Queen (from Narnia)

      But over all (over the years that they've had the face character), I think it's Cindy (Cinderella).
      Most consistently the best.

      BTW. this is only DLR, for some reason the casting in WDW is pretty bad. esp. in comparison to DL.

          I think Princess Aurora's are about the best speacil this one. She looks lot like her.

            I submit this from our littlecricket:

            The chemistry between the gal she calls Rapunzel Alice and the man she dubs Epic Hatter is perfect.

              This is what I wrote in the other thread about what I look for in a good face character:
              Here's what I look for in a good face character: first they must actually look like the character they are portraying. If someone doesn't that is honestly not their fault, it's casting's fault for allowing this person to be in the park. Secondly, they must have specific character mannerisms down. Third, their voice should match their character (accent, tone, Snow White should have a soft & sweet voice, Maleficent should sound evil). Lastly they should be able to improv as their character. Add in normal character rules and guidelines and that is how I base a good or bad character.

              A person could be a dead ringer but have mannerisms and the voice be off. Unfortunately Disney doesn't give performers much time to learn it and perfect it. You get a day or two tops training on your specific face role and then you're on your own. Quite intimidating when you have guests surround you 360 degrees.
              I feel a lot of female face characters at DL are way too old for their role (esp Ariel, Wendy, Alice) or they look nothing like the character (Belle, Aurora, Cindy). This is not the fault of the performer. If they are too old management should take them out of the role. If they don't look like the character they should never have been cast. In my opinion, parade and Fantasmic! are the worst at keeping face character standards. I have also seen some wonderful performers and they have almost always been doing greetings in the park. Again, this is my opinion.

                    That video is adorable! Unfortunately, I don't see them very often in the park. I think Ariel is adorable and last time, I thought Jack Sparrow did a very good job.

                      I love that Alice. She is spot on with her voice. Littlecricket has several videos featuring her. I also love the one she calls the Carebear Alice. I met her when i was there. Also the Princess Aurora I met when I was there in December was amazing. She was so pretty and so much like the true Aurora.

                          BTW, according to littlecricket, the code names for those in the video I posted are Rapunzel Alice and Epic Hatter.

                              The wicked wicked evil Queen and Cruella DeVil are the best in the Park, consistently, IMO.
