    I want them to bring back Tarzan in the parks. They get the hunkiest, muscle guys to play Tarzan. I love him!

      Tarzan would be good in the spring, summer and warm fall months since he will only have a loin cloth on or he must be inside during other times. It would be nice if they put him back in Swiss Family Treehouse and have the Meet and Greet there.

    GREAT job Disney! This was an amazing idea. I remember having my picture with robin hood in like 2000. It’s good to show today’s kids these characters

    Just left Epcot and saw Gideon the cat from Pinnochio, Max & Goofy, Jafar, King Louie & Baloo, and Brer Bear… They were only there for an hr and the section was closed the rest of the time we were there.

    I want all these characters: I’m very happy for the return of Clarabelle Cow, Horace Horsecollar, Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, and The Three Little Pigs.

    I want them to bring back Esmeralda, Quasimodo and Phoebus from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”, Hercules and Megara from “Hercules”, Tarzan and Jane from “Tarzan”, Milo and Kida from “Atlantis”.

    I also want Black Cauldron characters (Taran, Eilowny, Fflewddur Fflam, and Gurgi) and characters from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (Ichabod Crane, Katrina Van Tassel, Brom Bones and Headless Horseman)in the parks.
