Tinker Bell will be relocating to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and her other fairy friends will appear later in the Spring at Epcot.

Maybe she'll be in front of the hat, or possibly be the maiden voyage of the area thatll become the rumored Phineas and Ferb meet and greet. Though i think the most likely will be replacing lotso...

Isn't Tinker Bell about the size of your hand? How are they going to get the character that size to meet large-sized people?

well, I remember Tink & her other fairy friends were over in the vicinity of the butterfly habitat the past couple of years for Flower & Garden at EPCOT, so it would make sense that they will still be there in the Spring.

When Tinkerbell arrives on February at DHS, she will be meeting guests at Journey into Narnia building. Tinkerbell will meet guests either in the Prince Caspian meet n greet area or the outdoor meet area near the TSMM restrooms

Doesn't that kinda violate the whole "size" issue? After all, Tink is about the size of your hand. I really hope Disney reinstates the Pixie Hollow meet & greet when New Fantasyland opens up. Than again, Disney just isn't that very smart. :(

Given the time constraint, it does not appear to be an issue for Disney. After all, we see her during Wishes and in the parades and it's not explained the shrinking thing. I think Disney (or someone) use the size explanation as to why there wasn't a Tink meet-n-greet earlier more than anything.

I know they need to find a place for Tink to reside for the time being, but the Studios? AK seems like a much better fit for her and her friends. Heck, they could redo Rafiki's Planet Watch for her... ;)

To address the size issue, she could just, like, stand way far away ...

This is cool. I think kids love meeting Tinkerbell, and this will probably be one of the few spots to meet her since Toontown will be closing in Feb. for construction.

As far as the size constraint issues. I know some time ago Disney was very aware of her pint size and that's why she didn't used to appear in person (except for the distant flight off the Castle). I was told during a Behind the Scenes tour of MK by a CM who was trained to do Tink's signature that anyone who wanted an autograph from Tink, was told they she wasn't available but if they left their autograph book at Town Hall (Guest Services) she would sign when she got back and they could pick up the book a bit later. I guess, once the first Tink movie came out, Disney figured they would make her life sized. Not sure that I care either way.
