Two questions...
Why don't they have a "no facial hair" policy for Tinker Bill?
and...
What do you think he tells his friends he does for a living?

The person who originally posted that photo wrote that even though some people thought there appeared to be facial hair on the Tink, on his original photo it clearly is not and he actually posted another picture in the thread that showed what looks like facial hair is not. That picture is no longer available in the photo thread. Someone posted a link to the original photo thread earlier in this thread, so you can see what the person who took the pictures said about the pictures.

Disney is sooooo strict with employee image that I would highly doubt they would let a guy fly with facial hair....unless they were really strapped for a tink that night and maybe they figured probably no one would notice? I dunno, like I said Disney has OCD when it comes to employees' images.

I wonder about the stories people tell. Even though this gal worked at MK, who knows if she wasn't a receiver of the rumor mill there too??
We talked with a CM who told us that Tink was paid $400 an hour. I have no idea if it is true through.

It's said Tink gets 8 hours of pay each day she works. Let's suppose that she's actually on the clock for a half hour. If her pay rate was $25/hour, she'd get $200 for that half hour, essentially being paid at the rate of $400/hour. I doubt those are the actual figures, but that's probably what these folks mean; not that her actual hourly pay rate as it shows on her check is $400.

The thought of Tinker Bill rather frightens me.

It would take too long to type the entire article up, but if anyone used to subscribe to the now-extinct Disney Magazine, in the Fall 2004 issue (it has the Animated Movie Guide on the cover) there's an interesting 1-page article about Tiny Kline, who, at age 70, was Disneyland's first ever Tinker Bell.

Yeah, I was trying to see if I could find that on line someplace. It was an interesting article.

1. If Tink' is paid $500. per performance, it seems as if Disney could be strapped for a performer every now and then.
2. Those who reported facial hair on Tink', was that seen with the naked eye?
3. Some time back I read on these boards an account of a (guy) who turned down the face character position of Peter Pan because he would have to shave his chest.

No.
Someone took pictures of Tink's flight and posted them on a thread quite a while ago. When people saw the pictures, some posted on that thread that they thought it looked like Tink had facial hair. The OP of the pictures posted that the original photos did not show any facial hair. Someone posted copies of some of the pictures from that thread on this one.
