    Question Anyone else notice Tink missing in the fireworks last night?

    I noticed there was a balloon tangled in her wires earlier that day. I thought they'd take it out before that night, but I guess they just cancelled her instead.

    I had heard that she got hit by a piece of pyro on Wed nights show.

    HOLY CRAP, that is SO SCARY.

    There was one night where something had gone wrong after she had come out of the Matterhorn (but wasn't lit up yet), and the spotlight went on her but she didn't move so they turned it off, and she just hung there by the Matterhorn without moving... All the kids sitting around me thought she was dead!

    But she ended up making it back into the mountain anyway... VERY scary job, though...

    And aren't there multiple Tinkerbells anyway? So if one is in a tragic firework accident, another one can take her place? ...Gosh, I make them seem so dispensable...

    I wonder how much she gets paid to do that...

    Re: Anyone else notice Tink missing in the fireworks last night?

    I wasn't there last night, but I've noticed her "missing" from the show at least a half a dozen times so far. But we have seen the fireworks quite a few times (like about 40!)

    I don't doubt that a balloon tangled in the wires would keep her from performing.

    Unlike some, Tink not being in the show doesn't "ruin my DL experience" for the rest of the night.

    Safety first!

    There was definitely a balloon caught in the wires directly over the Fantasyland Courtyard. I did briefly wonder how they were going to get it down before the fireworks, but my shift ended before I found out.

    There were also high winds last night that delayed the show... that probably had something to do w/ it.

    high winds will stop her from flying that is probably the reason!

    So which team got her.... I was rooting for the green team, if it was our bottlerocket we get a free pizza party. (Play on the old Tragedy in the Sky joke.)

    Are you asking for a 'wig', or a 'swig' ?

    I'm sure that 'Bubba' will be glad to slap ('n' tickle) a little fairy dust on your behind MG...
