Unfortunately, you can't wake up Tink anymore. I used to work in that shop and it's been gone now for over 3 years. They made it into a photo studio for the girls who get their hair done at the bibbidy boppity boutique. I am still upset that it's gone as it was the best shop to work in, and the most magical thing to help call Tink into the store! I will never forget the looks on guest's faces as Tink flew into the shop and waved to the guests!

It is true about not being able to wear a costume if you are an adult. Only kids can dress up if they buy a costume inside. However, it says adults can dress up on Halloween which is not true! We went and still couldn't get in until we changed.

Doublecinsco,

Adults can dress up for the special halloween parties they have. They are a lot of fun but cost extra! As a cast member I even had to pay, but I went twice!

I sent in a comment joking that the cats they release at night to catch mice might eat Mickey or Minnie mouse. I also suggested that I would like this article in a printer friendly format. And my comment was denied, because it was "off topic or disruptive." Definitely not either off topic or disruptive. It was both about the content of the article, and also a suggestion that this same article be formatted printer friendly. Maybe the reviewers are just upset that I keep asking for these "list" articles be put in printer friendly format. I've actually been amazed lately at some name calling comments that get through, and about this comment that didn't.

"Hidden Tunnels" are NOT in every branch of Walt Disney World. ...Only the Magic Kingdom.

The cats are actually not released every night. They are free to walk around the park all the time. Herding all the cats at the end of the night would be impossible. They simply do what cats do during the day; they find a quiet place to sleep. I have seen one or two hanging around the Hungry Bear Restaurant, but in addition to all the rodents they find, Disney keeps them well fed so they don't beg for food. The birds, on the other hand, are quite bold. Ever since Cinderella, they think they're people.
And yes, adults can wear costumes during the special Halloween parties which also has the best fireworks. Last year one of the nights of the parties was too windy to fire of the fireworks and because it's not safe to remove them from the tubes once loaded, the regular guests got a special treat the next night.
