Tinkerbell's Autograph?

Has anyone ever heard of getting a Tinkerbell Autograph or character meeting with Tink? My DD is really starting to like Tink and my DS just got into autographs this last Nov when we were at WDW. I have been numerous times but have never seen Tink in person except on floats during parades etc. Thanks

I've never seen Tink out and aobut in the parks. If you are staying onsite the hotel might be able to get you an autographed picture. We got an autographed princess picture and a toystory one. They are black and white, with the characters standing in front of the castle.

On the WDW boards I remember seeing someone say that when they got an autograph from Wendy or Peter Pan, they asked where Tinkerbell was and when they got the autograph book back, it had Tinkerbell's marking too

BUT, we couldn't find Peter Pan or Wnedy on our last trip so couldn't test it out!

I heard a rumour (sorry, can't remember where) that they were going to start having Tink as a full-size character. I hope not, because that would take away the magic of it

There are alot of characters IMO that they kind of take the magic out of because they are not the size they should be...KWIM?

Well I know they have her full size on one of the floats for the parade of dreams. I know what you mean about taking away some of the magic. But I think I would rather see Tink then the mice from Cinderella

I have one really special autograph book that has Tinkerbell's autograph, but we didnt meet her. I worked with a lady whose daughter worked at Disneyword. When I told her about my daughter's trip she gave me an autograph book that had been signed by a ton of cool characters and were all addressed to my daughter! It is the coolest thing. I have it put away so she will have it when she is older. The autographs are really good, nicer than we have gotten at the parks and it is so fun to see them all.

She loves her book that she has of when she got to meet the characters for their autographs though. I enjoyed the artistry of the autographs in this one...and that they are addressed to her. I am sure when she is older she will like it too. Its funny to think of this one being done. All those characters sitting around at a party and passing the autograph book around.

Sorry, no Tink autograph here either, but....I have heard of a really cool thing to do. Get some glitter and while your little ones are looking for Tink, sprinkle it on their shoulders. Tell them you thought you saw her fly by. You can then glue the glitter in their book and they will always have a cool memory created by you.

Couldn't Tinkerbell sign the autograph book while your daughter is sleeping? You could tell her that Tinkerbell is busy protecting Peter Pan during the day and prefers to visit Disneyland at night. After she signs the book, she might even leave a little pixie dust on her pillow.

I have seen a Tinkerbell font on the internet. You could practice before you go.

As a sleazy guy, I don't mind seeing Tink in full size.

Ok, I am going to have a time out in the corner now.
