Walt Disney World in Orlando has recently had to remove dozens of unauthorized costumed characters from its parks.

These characters have no correlation with the Disney brand and are found illegally posing with children and families who believe that the costumed individuals represent characters from Disney films.

Disney officials have found such unauthorized characters at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney's Hollywood Studios and have escorted them out peacefully.

For visitors, it's important to note that these individuals do not appear to be charging for photographs or acting with malice.

It appears that they enter the park with a full fare ticket and change into their costumes in restrooms.

Impersonators

As a general rule, if you are at Walt Disney World and you do not recognize a character, it is best not to approach him or her.

The impersonators create elaborate costumes, character backstories and even catch phrases.

Among the characters that have been removed from the park are Belgian peasant girls, fairies and woodland creatures.

More elaborate characters that have been found include Chompers the Iguana, King Stumpy the muskrat and a particularly troublesome possum that frequents Main Street U.S.A. A representative from Disney admits that upwards of 20 illegal characters are removed from Walt Disney World and Disney resorts each day.

Oftentimes these individuals return to the park just hours after exiting, but Disney is taking proactive measures to solve this growing issue.
