    Tinker Bell's flight

    Could it ever be possible for the Magic Kingdom Tinker Bell to have the same flight system as the Disneyland Tinker Bell?

    No.


    There is no Matterhorn, so she should have to fly out of a low building from Tomorrowland and land in another low building in Liberty Square/Fantasyland. In the middle of this she would have to go up to reach the castle so it would be a bit of a height change mid-flight.

    I agree. The effect works best at DL, where Tink hover *over* the castle. At the MK, this would not make for a better Tink appearance, and if they did go for it, the castle's top would have to undergo major remodeling to accomodate the cable system. I don't think they are willing to spend money on those little things anymore.

    BTW... the same cable system from DL is also used at Universal Studios Japan, during their Peter Pan's Neverland show... where Peter and Wendy take to the sky and fly all over the stage, back and forth...etc etc.

    Not sure if a similar system would work at the MK either, but they should at least upgrade the Tink costume to one like DL has.

    If they changed Tink's flight route she wouldn't fly into the big padded mattress on top of the building in Tomorrowland. I'm sure Tink would be heartbroken by that!

    Wishes debuted four years ago. And the DL tink costume is far superior to the one used now at WDW. Tink's flight has always been a highlight for me at the MK but after seeing her at DL I think MK's could use the upgrade.
