    What are these people called?

    I saw these people several times during our last trip. One time this guy kept following me around, it was pretty funny.
    I just realized. I have no idea what they are called. Can anyone help? Is there a schedule for their appearances???

    That is Italy!! I think they might be called Harlequins but I'm not sure. I'm not basing it on anything. Just a guess...

    When i read about harlequins in Italy i began to think of the showcase players bc they do an improve theater that has been around since the renaissance and they didnt have much more than a cart and a few props. The main chracters that they use are the girl, the old man, and the harlequin. I dont know if anybody cared but its fun to know. (I was in a theater class and when they started talking about that i went crazy thinking about the ones in Disney)

    The living statutes at the French pavilion are gone, I think.

    I remember they were originally in France, but I've seen them in Italy too, but now that you mention it, I haven't seen them recently. I hope they return.

    The collective name for all of them is "Masquerade." Two friends of mine waaaaaaay back when they first premiered were cast as them. They really enjoyed it!
    Now is the time. Now is the best time. Now is the best time of your life. Life is a prize. Live every minute. Open your eyes and watch how you win it. Yesterdays memories may sparkle and gleam. Tomorrow is still but a dream! Remember the past, but live for today. The whole world is watching and your in the parade. There's so much to cheer for, be glad you're here for it's the best time of your life!

    The Vine lady was still in AK the last time I was there in Oct. She reminds me of the living statues. I'll have to look for the harlequins. I don't recalling seeing them. No matter how many times you go to WDW, there still are new things to see.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?
