    I think I'm going to audition. Here are the promo pictures/prototypes they've already hired and are basically what they'll be looking for from here on out:

    Sorry, can't paste the link because I'm new... just go to google and type in "jim hill fairies walk around" and you should get the picture of the 5 girls.

    Sigh.....I was really hoping they would re-think this and not do the fairy meet and greet. I know alot of people are excited to meet Tink, but I really think they should leave her the way she is. I just can't imagine a human ever being able to capture the magic of Tinkerbell and I just prefer to think of her as I always do....flitting around the parks spreading pixie dust. Oh well, the will of the people prevails!

    I am torn on this too... I saw a pic of a Tink from DL and I didn't think it looked right (on the parade float) but I do think if they found the perfect Tink it would be a good thing....they need to be picky and pay more than that lol

    My DD16 would be a perfect Tinkerbell! She's petite - 4'11", tiny features and sassy:rotfl2: She actually played Tinkerbell in her Dance recital. She was great and she loved all the little girls running up to her calling "Tinkerbell! Look it's Tinkerbell!!":lovestruc

    She keeps begging me to move to Florida.

    Hmm...wonder if WDW needs electricians (that's what DH is)?????????

    I'm torn. I'd love to do a meet and greet with Tink, but I also see this as being something they could do like Turtle Talk with Crush. Still the same Tink, but still mixing with people.

    I saw the same picture ... :scared:

    I also saw some other pictures of "proto-types" of the fairy characters.
    They were okay I guess, but there was no sparkle. To me they just looked like girls dressed up as fairies and weren't very Disney-like IMHO, in fact, I'd say they were rather generic looking even.

    If Disney HAS to do this :rolleyes: I wish they would do something really special, make it really magical experience, not just stick someone who is the right height in a Tinkerbell costume.
