    Where's Tink!?

    Just watching Wishes now. Where the hell is Tink? There's so many moments which seem empty without that emotional high of seeing her fly from the turret. Such as, just before the characters say their wishes, and a major one (but might detract from the storyline) would be when Jiminy says "Oh look, it's the Blue Fairy!" If he said "Oh look, it's Tinker Bell!" then Tink comes down from the tallest tower, with the music and everything, it's just perfect...

    Watch it, see for yourself.
    In the mean time, I'll go back to festering in my anger.

    There is no Matterhorn for her to fly from and BTM is too far away. You'll have to be happy with her on the weathervane atop the Hotel.

    Sleeping Beauty's castle at DLP does have a line for Tink to fly on. And the castle is not as sort as in DL in CA, the castle is about the height of the Matterhorn.

    When I went to DLP Tink made a special appearance at the top of the castle but she didn't fly. It was part of the tree lighting ceremony during the holidays, it was pretty cool.

    Lucky for you... I know the answer to that question because i do visit more Disney parks than just frumpy WDW... right? So it's TDLFAN to rescue you yet again my dear briton, whip dole slurping boy.

    The reason why you do not see Tink fly in DLP's Wishes is because her flight cable is directly over the line of fire where pyro is shot from. At DLP, La Feux Clochette (what a stupid french name for Tinkerbell! Just as bad as Dingo and Tic et Tac. YUK!!) flies towards the side of the castle and over most buildings over on the east side of Fantasyland where her landing pad happens to be located. This happens to be way too close to the pyro. At WDW, Tink flies away from the castle and away from the pyro as she glides down over the hub towards Tomorrowland.. Of course... in the old DLP pyro show.. Tink did her ascent towards the castle and actually entered the castle's platform, where a door closed behind her and she was the safe and away from the pyro before it actually started. The same could be done for Wishes I presume, but the storyline of Wishes deals more with the Blue Fairy than Tink, reason why I feel Tink feels "forced to be there" and is irrelevant to the story of the show at WDW. Notice how Tink does her flight in the middle of Wishes and not before... The same can not be done at DLP without bringing the pyro to a hault. Comprende?

    It's not La Feux Clochette but La Fée Clochette, you're probably mixing "Les Feux de la Fée Clochette" (former pyro show at DLP) and La Fée Clochette (literally Little bell fairy).
    Need some french lessons TDLFAN ? I'll teach you how to say "clean this park!", or "empty this dustbin!".
    right?

    Who is Dingo?

    I know Tic et Tac are Chip and Dale.

    First you have to teach me Brit-speak... we don't say "dustbin" in the USA, so to me that means a bin or shelf that is in need of dusting dirt off...

    Actually Dingo is an old-fashioned french adjective that means... goofy.
    However, recently I noticed french kids use both Dingo and Goofy.
