    New Tinkerbell Wires

    My partner and I were at the Park on Sunday and noticed 6 wires coming from the Matterhorn to the "landing tree". I am assuming these are going to be part of the 50th fireworks (Tinkerbell), but for the life of me, can't understand how this may work. Has anyone heard anything as to what is going to happen?

    Rumor is that she'll be doing a loop-the-loop.
    Wait, that was a Space Mountain rumor.

    Although I am not sure as to the exact operations of these wires, Ill use what I heard at the beginning of the whole 50th plans. Basically, the lines are different from the old tink lines in that instead of a plain zipline, the new lines are pulleys which will enable tink to do an assortment of arial acrobatics. If anybody knows more, Im really interested in how this will work.

    I thought they were going to shoot her out of a cannon?

    I heard they were going to catapult her with a trebuchet....

    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!

    I think they're going to try and make Tinkerbell fly more like the opening of the television show, where she flys left and right and up and down as oppose to just in a straight line.

    Wehn I was there with my son a week ago, I took a picture of the wires where they meet the support tree.



    There are six total wires. I noticed that a couple of the wires were red.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    NO GOATS!

    I'm sure Tink will look great, but those wires are starting to become an eye sore.

    I believe that the plan with the multiple cables was to enable her to go backwards as well as forwards instead of the one way trip...

    Well, it better look spectacular, because it's going to take a lot to balance out the eyesore that the wires are to Disneyland. I mean, if I wanted strands of telephone wire piercing my view of theme park sky, I could go over to DCA.


    This is from someone who's heart will melt if they really pull off Tinkerbell reenacting the opening of Wonderful World of Disney .... but those wires are just too ugly for the long daylight hours that they are going to detract from.
