Yet More Disney Characters Who Wear RED

© Copyright 2008 Tink *~*~*

IMG_0210-EPCOT-Donald-Duck-topiary 😀 Is there no end to the number of Disney characters who wear RED? Apparently not! I’ve already documented the phenomenon of Disney characters wearing red quite extensively. Then this evening, while drooling over some old photos from the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival from ‘way back in 2004, I found a couple more Disney characters wearing red, and then fast forwarded to October of that same year to find one more, just because I think three is a nice number of photos to include in any given post 😉 This is, of course, in honor of Ruby Tuesday, where once a week, our host Mary encourages us to post a little something to do with the color RED.

Here we see Donald Duck in topiary, his jaunty blue sailor hat and perky RED bow tie standing out from the ivy he’s made of. At his feet, some RED apples; behind him, the RED brick wall that separates The American Adventure pavilion from… um… what’s on the other side of that wall? Oh yeah, Japan! See, it’s been all the way since October since I was last there, and I’m forgetting it all – I need a fix! 😉 The trip report I wrote about this day indicates that I spent some time just hanging out at the American Adventure listening to music – the twin brother duo Nelson was there, playing their one pop hit plus all the classics made famous by their more-famous father, Ricky Nelson.

IMG_0240-MK-Parade-PinocchioNow we will fast-forward a few months to November 1st 2004. I was in the Magic Kingdom with Chez Bro and Da Fam (SIL and Nieceling) when the Share A Dream Come True parade came through. Many of the characters are presented inside these snow globes; I found myself hoping that these vehicles came equipped with air conditioning! I hear that it’s really quite hot and stuffy enough inside those costumes without the sun creating a hothouse effect inside the plastic bubble! Inside this particular bubble/snow globe is Pinocchio, who is wearing RED knee britches. If you look real close, you will see Jiminy Cricket hanging from the roof of the globe.

IMG_0070-DAK-Lilo-StitchLast shot – back in time we go to April 2004 again. Here are Lilo and Stitch, waiting to greet what was no doubt a LONG line of autograph-seekers. Stitch is not looking as good as I’ve seen him; that costume just doesn’t seem right to me, maybe a little too baggy, and the head is too small. Or something. There doesn’t look to be anything particularly RED about Stitch. However, the lovely Lilo is modeling a RED Hawaiian print, and has a RED hibiscus bloom adorning her hair. And for my great buddy Christene, both are wearing leis made of plumeria blossoms. While I concede that they are probably not contraband plumeria (and therefore, probably not especially thrilling to Christene, whose tastes run toward contraband), they plumeria none the less 😉

  1. Your Disneyland figures sure contains a lot of red.
    Donald Duck is my favorite. He’s bringing back sweet nostalgia from the innocent 50ies.
    The quality of your pictures is amazing.

  2. I love Lilo. Stitch’s head is too small. Looks funny. Again, so creative with the post. Wishing you were at Disney now getting your fix!

  3. Oh, it has been so long since I’ve been to Disney….our son is 25 and he was 8 when we were last there. Love the topiary!

  4. Donald Duck was always my favorite. He evokes all the trials and tribulations we all face ans gets mad about it, shakes it off and tries again. Chip and Dale were too hard on Donald, I think…

  5. Hey, this is a great story and photos – you might like our meme at Tell Me Thursday – you can make your WW really wordless and STILL tell the story! Give it a try!”
