This week Disney Online invited a few Disneyland guests to the new Pixie Hollow attraction for an event celebrating the official launch of the Disney Fairies Pixie Hollow virtual world (www.PixieHollow.com). Teen celeb Debby Ryan, from Disney Channel’s Suite Life on Deck, was at the event and took a break from flying her fairy avatar around and playing games in the Pixie Hollow virtual world to sign autographs for excited fans.
Disney Fairies Pixie Hollow is an online virtual world where guests can create their own Fairy avatar to take flight alongside Tinker Bell and their Fairy friends. In the world, Fairies help bring about the change of seasons through meeting friends, playing games and collecting items in nature. It’s very easy to sign up and get going. It took me about 10 minutes to design my fairy and get going.

Disney Interactive Media = DIM. Sorry Disney, I couldn’t resist. They, of course, prefer the acronym DIMG, but that doesn’t sound out very well. DIG has been done and might have bad connotations at the Mouse House after that billion dollar debacle. So DIM it… Read More »Merger brings management changes to Disney Interactive Media Group (DIM)
