    Disney stilt walkers utilize two types of stilts, one a "bouncy" stilt, that are shaped like the letter "C". This is what gives them bounce.

    The other type are the standard type. These have a big foot print, about as big as a normal human foot.

    and what is considered the "normal human foot??"
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. - Walt Disney

    No mater what type the are using. They stilt walkers are still amazing being able to walk around and interact all the while not tripping and falling. Hats, err Ears off to them.

    No, they do not have special stilts. They have special people who can actually walk on them. They are specially trained CM's
