    Anyone ever woken up Tinkerbell?
    It sounds like a very cool thing for the kids to do....would love to be in the shop when some one does it :p015:

    No, I've not done it, or been there when it has happened, but it would be SO cool to see! I have a couple of little relatives coming at Christmas time who I KNOW would love to see and most certainly do this.

    The trick will be getting them there that early and of course dealing with the masses of guests at that time of year!

    I have heard that some parents get very competitive about this and there is a virtual stampede to the store each morning to be the one whose kid gets to wake up Tinkerbell.

    I need to be there early to watch this running of the Tink attraction. :rofl:

    I think some folk book a breakfast at MK early so that they can be the first in line at the shop as it opens

    Well, that leaves us out then. I really dislike that sort of nonsense. :(

    You can see her in the dresser and watch her fly around the shop anytime of the day though. That's what we usually do.

    Oh yes, we've watched her fly around the shop. :yes: That in itself is fun! :yes: The girls will like that. I dread taking them into shops though. Those two can shop for the world! :eek:

    I'm trying to remember if one of our DGDs got to wake her or if we were just in there when it happened.

    Krista, that sparkle that goes on in the store on the wall, makes a little jngling noise ? Thats probably what it is , the child opens the drawer while the CM secretly hits the switch that makes her wake up . I've never been there to see her waken , but I imagine this is what it is . I've seen the drawer opened and turned on ... when off .
    I was going to suggest , if you book a breakfast for CP or CRT early enough, you may be able to get to the store before the park opens .
    Now, I want to do this . LOL

    You can look through the hole in the dresser anytime and see her. Then she flitters about the store.

    This shop was closed for a refurb when we were there last week. Not sure when it will reopen.
