    I think it depends on the character. When I see the characters, they will all usually pose. For example, when I saw Mickey in front of the castle during the old castle show (CSC) he got down on his knee and pretended to propose to me (I love that picture). I have a picture with Goofy of us dancing. And I have a picture with Pluto of us sitting on the ground. (I have more, but I'll start with these).

    Yes, other characters have adopted it. I think it helps give them a little life (not to mention balance!) not every character looks so hot on film just standing around straight up.

    Also, I wanted to say I couldn't agree more about the face-character auditions. NOT my finest hour. I especially loved the part that went like this:

    "Now talk to your neighbor (the sap in line next to you) and forget we are here..."
    *fifteen seconds later*
    "Okay, number 17, could you smile for us?"
    "Now, number 5, would you say 'hello',"
    *pause*
    "Alright, numbers 5, 18, and 23 please stay, everyone else, thanks for coming."
    *Two minutes later*
    "Oh! Number 23 we didn't realize from back there you have a facial mole, sorry about that. We apologize, you'll have to go. Thanks anyway."

    Grrrrrrrrr. SO very magical. (Not to mention the awful questionaire about tattoos, piercings, body weight and eye color).

    Certainly. Just try to stay away from the Chinese area at EPCOT. The evil wizard that lives under the gift shop has been seeking a green-eyed princess for two thousand years now (no worries, though. I bet guest relations has Kurt Russell on the hotline if you need rescued).
