Did Disney spoil this teens experience or did she just look too good?!

Wow! She did a great job on the costumes & my heart goes out to her, but if I was there w/ my kids I could see how they could be confused w/ the actual characters that Disney pays to work there. What do you think?

  • Yeah, they should make the policy more known. But, I do understand how they wouldn't want little kids going up to her.

  • Sorry, but you are too old to be crying about a costume.

  • If it's really that important to her to "be Tinkerbelle", then she needs to apply to the park for the job. Disney simply cannot have random people running around the park dressed as the characters they employ people to portray. Little kids run up to and hug, talk to those characters, have their picture taken with them, etc. all the time. Disney has a responsibility to make the park as safe as possible and part of that is to make sure that the only people portraying the characters are the ones they employ. I certainly wouldn't want to go to the park if random people were running around dressed as the different characters, that would be a tragedy waiting to happen.

  • I agree with pp she is too old to be crying over being Tinker Bell. Disney holds the right to that character and they even tried to make it right, but policy is policy.

  • Not surprising. They want the place to be magical. 18 freakin years old and crying that she didn't get to be Tinkerbell? OMG.

  • As I said in the other question, Disney was right. IMHO, it's line the opening act at a Bon Jovi concert singing "Living on a Prayer".
    And her dream??? Puh-leeeeeaaaaze! If that's her "dream", this girl needs a life. Seriously.Go dress like Tinkerbell at the mall, that's sure to get the attention she needs. Grow up, it's not a tragedy.

  • It doesn;t matter if they did or not. It would be irresponsible for Disney to have allowed her to enter dressed like that.
