    With pixie dust, of course!

    Oh, and a happy thought, too.








    Really though, the mechanism is very similar to the one used for the magic carpet in the Aladdin show. There's a platform that runs back and forth over cables with more cables attached that tink hangs from that allow her to go up and down.

    Like others posters have said, Pixie dust and wings. I thought everyone knew that.

    That is kind of like asking how does Santa get into your house on Christmas....

    Faith, trust and a bit of Pixie dust.

    It would never be something like a cable mechanism strung between the Matterhorn and Snow White building. No, no. Never.

    Of course it isn't! Everyone knows that line doubles as the cable tv line and clothes line.

    Just remember without a well written Disney Villain, there would be no point in the Heroes and the Princesses. Have you hugged a Disney Villain today?

    The cable is really from the matterhorn to the Snow White building?? I woulda never guessed. From Tarzan's tree house it looks like it goes from the matterhorn to a really tall tree, or am i going blind again?

    does Tinker Bell create pixie dust?
    "Peter," she asked, trying to speak firmly, "what are your exact feelings to me?"
    "Those of a devoted son, Wendy."
    "I thought so," she said, and went and sat by herself at the extreme end of the room.

    Well when she gets shaken over Nana the Dog she spurts dust all over the place so I would think so.

    she could attract pixie dust that is already floating in the air though, like vases and antiques collect dust that's already in the air.
    "Peter," she asked, trying to speak firmly, "what are your exact feelings to me?"
    "Those of a devoted son, Wendy."
    "I thought so," she said, and went and sat by herself at the extreme end of the room.
