We never see the characters in our hotel anyway, we always want to get to EMH, the only hotel we meet characters in is DLH, and I would be surprised if they don't keep them there, but they will be much busier if so.

We didn't find POR or any of the WDW resorts any more Disneyish than the ones at DLP and they didn't have characters. I think it's only the value resorts in WDW that have obvious Disney theming, so in that respect DLP is no different to WDW. Can't speak for DL or Tokyo though.

Yes, I don't understand the idea that the hotels are 'not very Disney'. Most WDW hotels are not full of Mickey & co imagery - quite deliberately. Instead they are themed to different places or ideas. The SL is very similar to Wilderness Lodge in theming. The HNY looks very like the Swan & Dolphin (same architect) and the DLH is very similar to the Grand Floridian. Cheyenne doesn't have a WDW equivalent but the theming there is excellent.

To me the hotels are very Disney indeed!

However, I do think removing the characters is a bad move. For little ones or those with special needs it is a quieter, easier way to meet the characters.

We're going in October so will get the opportunity.

I have not been to the other parks. I just assumed they would be more Disney ish. The ones at Wdw look very Disney, well at least from the outside. I have chilled out a bit now lol.

I am still a bit sad they made the decision but I trust they know what they are doing.

It would be nice if the rest of the resorts followed DLP's lead and added characters to their hotels rather than taking them away from DLP.

A much better idea. The hotel meets are especially good for us with young kiddies who are afraid of the big characters in the park. They don't seem quite so scary for my wee boy in the hotel. Even at the meet Mickey Mouse he was petrified of mickey. It's all about the environment. Bad move disney. Very bad move.

This is too bad. I've some lovely memories of my daughter meeting Mickey etc in the hotels. In fact my sister used the opportunity to let my nephew, who is Autistic, meet the characters. It was just not going to happen in the park! Sometimes things don't change for the better
