Edit for clarification: in reference to "underbuilt" or "overbuilt" I am specifically referring to it's layout and current character roster. It is blended in extremely well. I am curious what the fans of Pixie Hollow, and the casual fans of Tink, think about the various friends that they meet.
When it comes to Pixie Hollow there is a bit of "chicken or egg first" theory going on. Obviously the meet n greet is to advertise both the movie and the Disney Fairy line. However Tink is also a very popular beloved character and people have been asking for her for years. The conclusion may be similar to Finding Nemo Subs, where Disney saw an opportunity to tie a franchise to something people already wanted.
Because I have kids, I have the Tinkerbell Movie. In my opinion it isn't bad... but that opinion is based on having watched it almost non stop for the past few weeks (it was a Christmas Present to Tinkmomma from the kids). However the movie also brought up an interesting point, and I was thinking about it today while standing in line.
A lot of kids who will be traveling to Disneyland and are fans of Tinkerbell would likely convince their parents to purchase the movie prior to their arrival. Diehard fans would even know the names of the various faries, each having their own favorite. So for them the Meet n Greet might actually be a disappointment... especially if they are a fan of Clank, Bobble, or Vidia who currently aren't even on the character meet roster. It also would have been an opportunity for an oversized AA of Cheese (an adorable mouse in the movie) to demonstrate that you have "shrunk down to size". To those fans the current offering may seem "under built".
To the casual tourist who is simply in the park and would like to meet Tink, the long line and additional faries may seem like overkill, and the impression would be that Pixie Hollow was overbuilt.
I'm curious what everyone on here thinks. I realize it was executed well, and from what I am told is above and beyond what is offered at WDW.
On a personal note it was fun to stop in and see everyone at the Meet today. I apologize I couldn't stay longer, Tinkmomma and the kids were in the Pixie Hollow queue. We had hoped to see Fawn, but she left shortly before we reached the front. Iridessa was our fairy, and I have to be honest it was the best experience we have had in the two times we have been to Pixie Hollow. She was so friendly with the kids, charming, and answered the excited questions of a 3 year old! So that explains what started the thread!
