...Really...? by SonicHearts ...Really...? by SonicHearts
"Go on! Chase after him!"
"Grab him, son!"
"You gotta chase after him! Tackle him!"

.........This seriously happened, yes. Sure, that last one was being sarcastic, but the dad really did jump at Mickey and swing his arm around him. Scared me, he did. I thought I'd have to jump someone ><
Really, what makes people think its okay to act in such a way towards characters? It especially happens when they are leaving on their break. THEY WILL BE BACK OUT IN LIKE FIVE MINUTES!! CHILL!!! NOT THE END OF THE WORLD!
It can seriously get SCARY when guest get nuts over a character walking away. Especially fuzzy characters. Since they can't talk, they can't keep telling them "Sorry, I have to go now. I'll be back out though!" And character host aren't always with them to say for them.
Please, be respectful and reasonable! These guys are in really hot suits out in the sun for nearly over half an hour. Let them go on their darn break! It wont harm your schedule any to wait a few minutes. If you want a picture so bad, you can wait.

The stories I've heard and the things I've seen.... My goodness, these are the reasons I'd wanna be a character host above the other jobs. I do get scared for these guys when crowds get wild. People are crazy. If you'd take the time to watch and observe what happens, it can make ya think twice about chasing after any character.

Anyways, my comments about the picture: its mostly a doodle above all else. I wanted to draw more things involving Mickey, and I thought why not an experience I've with the mouse? When this happened I was following behind him on the way to the doors so I could say goodbye. Same reaction on my face too, to what I was hearing and after Mickey was nearly knocked down by the surprise of someone grabbing him. I was just all -facepalm- why....
Mickey's face is all like "please don't let them be serious"
This is why I think they walk as fast as they can to the doors. I'm serious, some guest are crazy. I hang on Main Street for long periods of time and watch most of the sets. Not all of the guest are bad, don't get me wrong, but some are just.... unpleasant.
So, its a bit of something of a rant picture to how I see some guest. There's worse then this, but I wont get into that.

Well, there's no reason to be scared to hug Mickey XD He loves hugs, and is always willing to give one. It's just better to be polite, which is what I wish people at the park would be. Though, even with all the times I go up to him, I'm personally always worried I could be bothering him, even if I don't do much lol.
But yeah, thinking of things from their point of view, I'm not sure how I'd handle nearly being talked D:

and thank you~

Oh wow, the dad actually said that? <_<; wow, I mean, I know people get really excited over seeing their favorite Disney characters but I didn't know they TACKLED them. Well at least in this case, this dad did. Awww, I feel so bad for those characters, having to hug and and sign over-excited peoples books and deal with the drama. But I know they love to act as the characters. I just wish their job could be much easier. I wish I could live in Flordia and enjoy the Disney-ness too. T_T
