Guest Blogger Amy Bedore visits the new Pixie Hollow in the Magic Kingdom's Toontown Fair. She files this report and shares her photos.
I spent the afternoon (10/27/08) at the Magic Kingdom to see the new Pixie Hollow and Tinker Bell Meet and Greet.
I got to the park about 11am and took the Train from Main St to Toontown Fair . The Pixies are meeting in the Country Fair tent and have taken over the room where Goofy, Pluto and Donald used to meet guests.
The area is now half princess and half fairy. The princess line was over 60 minutes long at noon. The Fairies had a 90 minute wait time showing but it took about double that to get into the room with Tinker Bell and her Fairy Friends.
Once through the door you are led into a hallway where "pixie dust" and "fairies" are born. Everyone "shrinks" to be the same size as Tinker Bell (you are given a photopass card on a stretch cord similar to the food and wine gift card or Waterpark Photopass).
You wait in the hallway until you are led into Pixie Hollow, three groups are allowed in at a time.
Each fairy takes you to their station. They are true to character and very nice. They take photo's and sign autographs for everyone.
At that point you are shown out to the hall to "follow the magic" out to the park.
It was a great experience but the wait times will be long.
Those who may have mobility issues may find it to be difficult to wait that long. I use a cane or a scooter and it was too much for me but I didn't want to leave since I had already waited so long. 3 hours was way too long and for me I wouldn't have gone out of my way for this but since it is new I just had to see what it was like.
