Poor Tinker Bell. She keeps having to up and move, and now all her friends have left her behind.
But the good news is you can now use the FastPass+ system to see her.
Disney has opened its latest version of Tinker Bell's Magical Nook, now located through the Town Square Theater off Main Street, U.S.A. This is the same place where you can meet the talking Mickey Mouse and the former home to the Disney Princesses before they got their new digs in Fantasyland.
The updated meet-and-greet is now in what Disney is calling the Garden Theater, and will allow guests to meet the most famous of fairies, but alas, all of Tinker Bell's friends and frenemies have flown the coop.
"Tinker Bell’s fairy friends have returned to Pixie Hollow to prepare for the coming seasons and will no longer be making regular appearances at Magic Kingdom Park," said Shawn Slater, communications manager for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment on the Disney Parks Blog.
It's the fourth home for Tink since Disney introduced the Fairies-themed meet-and-greet Pixie Hollow in 2008. The first home was located in what was Mickey's Toontown Fair, which of course transformed into Storybook Circus as part of the New Fantasyland overhaul.
During construction, Tinker Bell and friends like Vidia, Rosetta and Terence, who are featured in the Fairies straight-to-DVD movies, migrated to a garden space at Epcot. More recently, you could find them at Tinker Bell’s Magical Nook in Adventureland back in the Magic Kingdom, and now Tinker Bell holds court near the front entrance of the park.
The backstory on the original nook is that the pixies brought a cutting from the Home Tree (from whence all fairy dust flows) and planted it in the Magic Kingdom.
It's the newest attraction Disney has added to the growing FastPass+ stable of options, so visitors can schedule their time with Tink as part of their three Fast Pass choices during their visit to the park.
