Tinkerbell has been “shooting out of the castle” since opening day 1971!
I remember reading an acticle about the women hired to do it, she was from a circus family. That’s all I remember, I read it many years ago. Can’t remember where I saw the article.
ok so how the heck have you been missing this chris lol … I remember reading a story once about one of the "tinks’ having to be pushed every time.
raindrops I think the best place is in Fantasyland …but that is just my favorite … it’s like WDW resorts and rides …everyone has their own. a great place to see her come down right over you is the walk way to Tomorrowland, she glides right over your head.
Tink flew from the Matterhorn and past/behind the castle for a long time at DL and then they stopped it for years. She returned to her flight for the 50th celebration and I hope she stays. I’m glad they do it at MK too.
It WAS an attraction, it was called the Skyway and it sailed you across a thin wire from Tomorrowland to Fantasyland in little colorful buckets. :laugh: Close enough, right? hehe. Unfortunately it closed down quite a while ago.
all she did was wave to the crowd and fly off onto one of the buildings in the front of tommorland. to tell you the truth, i did not even see her appear. i caught her as she started to move. it was really neat to see… i watched the fireworks show from my room @ CR last october, and i did not see her. pretty neat stuff
Yes, except for nights they have hard ticket special events, which usually have their own fireworks displays.
Yes she does, I have video from one night where I just stayed on Tink all the way down the wire.
The best places to view any fireworks show in MK is in front of the castle. Anywhere that your view isn’t obstructed by trees or lamp posts. Anywhere up and down Main St. and the platform in the train station. You also have a really good view from the beach at the Poly, and you can even see Tink all the way from there. But whatever you do, you don’t want to get any closer to the castle than the middle of the hub, because the castle will start to block the fireworks. But you have to watch the show with the castle in front of you, because the show is designed with the castle to be the central point of focus.
