Walt Disney World Characters

Walt Disney World: ...doesn't everyone have a favourite?

Who's your favourite character when you visit wdw?
If you could be any Disney character who would you be? And I mean in the wdw parks, you have to wear the costume and hug kids and everything!
I have to admit, I've always thought I'd make a great Snow White, failing that Jesse from Toy Story would be cool!
Also I'd love to hear the experiences of any cast members who have worked with or as characters.

I wasn't concerned with or looking for the characters on the occasions I've visited Disney.

But my favorite characters include:

Jessica Rabbit
Jessie the Yodelin' Cowgirl
(sense a pattern here? :))

The Martians From the Claw Machine
Mike Wazowski

Personally, I can never get enough of Stitch!
Second is my lifetime favorite: Figment!
And for a princess, Aurora.

Aurora is a beautiful character. In the parks they should take that silly crown off her head.

My sympathetic favorite is the "lost princess" ... anyone remember Nancy?

Captain Hook is my favorite to meet. He always bows to the ladies, and even kisses their hand. He was also extremely proud of my husband for wearing a Captain Jack Sparrow hat. For our children...Donald Duck is a huge hit followed by Chip and Dale. Mike and Sully also did a great number with our oldest during a photo meet and greet. I could go on and on, so needless to say...We love them all.

Anyway, I also like the evil stepsisters found here:

Sorry..to me, Eeyore and Tigger don't count. They were pre-existing characters that Disney acquired rights to..:(

Wow, I didn't expect so many opinions!
My other halfs favourite characters are Hamm and Slinky Dog, but when I told him I'd never seen either in the parks he was a bit gutted! We have gone Toy Story 3 crazy!
Classic Disney character would have to be Goofy.

You know, Chip and Dale always crack me up.
