Characters can be found at Disney Parks around the globe, signing autographs, posing for pictures and appearing in live stage-shows. Costumed versions of characters from Disney's Animated Features and shorts, TV shows, video games and rides have been appearing at Disneyland since the day it opened in 1955 and have subsequently become must-see attractions at Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disneyland, Dinseyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland and on the Disney Cruise Line. The characters are Disney Cast Members who are costumed and interact with guests to further enjoy their visit or vacation. The characters are broken down into two groups: Atmosphere Characters and Face Characters

Atmosphere Characters

Atmosphere Characters are the most common type of characters who cannot talk to guests, but most can communicate through actions. A host often accompanies them to help them to guide them around the park. Atmosphere Characters are either meetable or non-meetable.

Face Characters

These people wear costumes but interact with the guests via improv acting and theatrical expertise as part of their job. Like the Atmosphere Characters, they are assisted by a character host at all times. Noted examples include all of the Disney Princesses, Disney Fairies, Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland. An example of a change for the better came in the 1980s, when park executives decided to change the Mad Hatter from an atmosphere character into a face character so they be allowed to interact with guests.
