After Camp Minnie Mickey closed to make way for the tall blue people from the Worlds of Pandora, Pocahontas had been meeting guests on the walking trail behind the tree of life. It was a great spot, but hard to find for some guests. Now… Read More »Pocahontas moves meet and greet location at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
On Halloween, Disney released an official video of Mickey Mouse talking to guests at Town Square Theater. It appears that Disney is still testing this new form of interactivity, as guest-made videos are now starting to appear. It’s nice to see that Mickey’s interactions are still spot on even without the “filter” of the official parks blog; he barely misses a beat! Take a look for yourself:

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.
