    You'll sometimes see Tinkerbell fans there clapping for her as she makes her mad dash.
    I never knew this! Now I want to stake her out, haha.

    I think they're just aerial stunt gymnasts in general, whoever is the right size with the right qualifications and availability for the job. It used to be a woman, one woman, for a long time, but since her retirement and the retirement of her daughter (and I right on that one, Tiny Kline's daughter is also retired from Tink?), they have a set of multiple performers who do it.
    Since flying Tink is now a masked character, I expect the gender thing works in much the same way as atmosphere casting: whoever is the correct size and shape for the part and fits the costume can be cast as her if they have the correct abilities, and sex of the person doesn't matter. I'm quite sure the flying Tinks are all closely the same size (how big or small this is I have yet to witness, but I will know if I stake out her exit now! Haha).

    Just in case anyone was worried about me...I'm fine. The exorcism didn't work on me so I'm my old normal evil self still.

    Oh yeah...the closure was due to a power outage in that section of the park. Trust me I know. I'm the one who had to deal with all the angry guests who wanted to know why they couldn't just cross the ropes to go through the castle and why they had to go around the Matterhorn to Main Street or hop the train at Toon Town Station and get off at Main Street Station.

    ok, but it still doesn't explain the black curtain.

    Yeah we were waiting in line when the lights turned on in BTMR and 4 cast members raced down the part where the little houses are. Then the lights turned back off, then on, then off again. We waited for about 20 minutes and then they closed the ride. When we asked what happened...they said Routine Inspection....at 11 at night? I am sure.....and then they had that whole walkway blocked off as well.

    But the next morning it was up and running again....Who knows!!
