Pixar Characters redrawn as Star Wars

I found these drawings of Pixar characters as Star Wars characters to be particularly fun. Disney does create new Star Wars themed Disney toys every year for Star Wars Weekends, so perhaps they’ll find some way to partner with this artist for his ideas.

So you want to be Mickey Mouse, eh?

Those of you who have ever considered being a costumed theme park character might want to read this story at the Orlando Sentinel first. You’ll probably have second thoughts. Costumed characters were back in the public eye after prosecutors recently found a Pennsylvania man guilty… Read More »So you want to be Mickey Mouse, eh?

Toon Quandry: Character Meet and Greet vs. Chance Encounters

Alain Littaye Andy De Maertelaere (Oops) of the MouseKingdom blog compares two type of character encounters and wants to know which you prefer: an orderly queue or the flash mob.

Tinker Bell and her Fairy friends coming soon to Disneyland and Magic Kingdom

Tinker Bell and her Pixie Hollow Fairies made a very brief appearance at a media event this morning. I was only able to get this poor shot.

Sorry about that. Hopefully, we’ll get a better view in the coming days.All I could think was “thank god they don’t have those freaky masks like the Fairies in ‘Light Magic’ did.” As you can see, this might become one of Daddy’s favorite attractions at the parks.

The five fairies are taken from the upcoming Tinker Bell Movie that will be released on DVD October 29th. Their names are:

  • Tinker Bell, a tinker fairy;
  • Fawn, an animal fairy;
  • Iridessa, a light fairy;
  • Rosetta, a garden fairy; and
  • Silvermist, a water fairy.

“Tinker Bell,” Disney’s most famous fairy and four of her best friends will debut in a meet-and-greet experience in Mickey’s Toontown Fair at Magic Kingdom.  The Pixie Hollow attraction is scheduled to open October 24th at Walt Disney World. Disneyland will get a slightly different version (it’s outdoor for one) that should open by early November.

The guest experience will be more than just the meet and greet. A magical forest will gradually shrink guests down to fairy size as they enter Pixie Hollow. As guests hear Tinker Bell speak for the first time, they also are sure to meet one or more of her fairy friends. Additionally there will be storytelling and other interactive experiences for guests.
