Shameless Plug Saturday: Briberry

What makes Disney Parks unique is how much attention they put into even the smallest of details. This is especially true for their attractions, but it’s even true for something as minor as their costumed characters. They may be people in costume, but these actors remain so true to their characters that they make you believe they’re the real deal. You almost believe that you’re meeting the real Alice or Mad Hatter or Peter Pan and not somebody in a costume.

Being able to encounter and interact with these  characters is almost worth the price of admission itself. One could easily be entertained going around the park and filming them. In fact, that’s what this week’s Shameless Plug Saturday feature actually does.

The bribery YouTube channel showcases several videos of the Disneyland characters and their many antics, whether it’s the Mad Hatter and Alice playing pranks on the other Disney staff, the Tremaine Sisters looking for a Valentine’s Day date, or even the Grinch and Jack Skellington facing off against each other (from different parks) to see who is the real master of Christmas.

If I had to pick a personal favorite, it would be this video of Alice and the Mad Hatter commandeering a Storybook Canal Boat Tour. Say what you want about the Mad Hat’s jokes, but they’re far more tolerable and entertaining that those of the Jungle Cruise’s Skipper!
