    Tinkerbell's New "Home" Info

    I got this from WDW News Today:

    According to the Orlando Sentinel:
    Walt Disney World is planning to add actresses playing Tinker Bell and her friends from an upcoming series of “Disney Fairies” movies - and might be creating a new attraction based on them.
    Disney held auditions last week for actresses to play the Disney Fairies characters in the parks, including Tinker Bell, Silvermist, Rosetta, Iridessa, and Fawn.

    In a prepared statement, a Disney spokeswoman explained: “Disney Imagineers are currently creating a special new home for Tink and her friends which promises to immerse guests in the world of Pixie Dust at Walt Disney World.

    Spokeswoman Andrea Finger would not elaborate about whether this meant the fairy characters will have their own attraction, nor did she specify which park they might appear in.

    Except for Tinker Bell, the characters are based on a new “Disney Fairies” entertainment franchise that the Walt Disney Co. has been developing in recent years through children’s books, Internet Web pages, games, toys, and a series of straight-to-DVD movies that will begin emerging this fall.
    There was even an official confirmation of this project in the August issue of the annual passholder publication, Mickey Monitor.

    I wonder if Tink's home will be in Camp Minnie Mickey at AK since Pocohontas is going to be gone?!

    Had to check this thread and make sure Adam wasn't airing my address or something, ha ha!

    I would love to see Tink and the other fairies in the park! I would wait in line for that one, for sure.

    Are they still doing the Tinker Bell meet and greet over where the sky ride use to be in the MK? Or is that already in place?
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    I think previously it was expected that that the Fairies would be over in Toontown, but it could easily have changed - it's been a while since I had first heard of them making casting calls, so it seems like the project has been moving pretty slowly.

    I don't recall a meet and greet...if you are talking about the Fantasyland end of the old Skyway, that's been a stoller parking area for quite a while...

    I had heard about the job posting for these characters a few days ago on a podcast. I'm psyched for this for one major reason... SCRAPBOOK!! I have all this great Tink scrapbook stuff but no photos to use it with. I'm a big Tink fan (oh man you should see my car) so I would venture a guess that I'll get all goofy and childlike if and when I met her and the other fairies.

    I thot they were going to be at the Studios. From what I understand they are redoing an area near the backstage tram tour with giant trees. I think that would make sense to draw more traffic into the Studios.

    JENN----Walmart has a TON of Tink purses and things on sell. And I just was at Joann's yesterday and they got in the cutest craft projects with the fairies on them for only $1.00 each. I got Meghyn a make and bake necklace. It actually came out pretty cute tho the ribbon that goes around your neck is REAAAAALLLLYYYYYY short. We'll have to replace that. lol
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    This would be really sweet. I'm sure lots of little girls would love it, and probably some big ones too LOL.

    I saw a photo of them and didn't save it. I am desperately trying to find it so I can post it here.

    I LOVE tink, and cannot wait to meet her in person. I just hope that shrinking down to fairy size doesn't hurt too much.
    Next trip, October 26, 2008! Woo hoo!

    I would think it'd be cool to put her in Fantasyland near the Peter Pan ride. No matter where she goes it'll be cool.
