We did the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert party and she pretty much flew right over us. I would imagine that the path from the hub to Tomorrowland would provide a similar (and cheaper) view of her.

Thats where we were last year and it was a spectacular view of tink. The fireworks were good, but to really see the castle show (whatever its called now) you should be in the hub.

does she come at the beginning or the end. Last time we were there, we looked and looked and never saw her.

She flies closer to the beginning. I believe if winds are above a certain MPH, she does not fly.

Although you can see her flight from the party, there's no requirement to be at the Dessert Party to see Tink.
She can best be seen from the orange shaded area in or near the Hub on the map below,
or between Casey's and the Plaza restaurants (green shaded area.)

The bridge to Tomorowland, right in front of Walt's Rose Garden. Tink flew right over our heads (complete with a clear view of Tink's butt ) You'll know you are in the right spot when you see her guide line

Same view as the Desert Party, not crowded and free

When does she fly? Is it before or after the fireworks? The last time we were there it was raining so she didn't fly.

She flies after the light projection show on the castle and before Wishes begins.

Sorry, that's not correct. Tink flies during Wishes (conditions permitting), but within the first few minutes of its start.

Oh, sorry!

I thought she flew towards the beginning of wishes...like before the fireworks began.

My apologies

Happy taughts

Stand right under the cable so you can clap reeeeealy loud and maybe pixie dust will sprinkle on you. I still have some glowing in a jar next to my bag of marbles. No you can't see it. Get your own.
