Scheduled to open beginning April 1, we have your first look inside the room for the FASTPASS-enabled Magician Mickey Mouse meet and greet at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Tucked away inside Exposition Hall, Magician Mickey invites fans to meet him ‘backstage’ where he’ll have a few tricks of his own including interactive posters, more than likely in the same vein as the enchanted art found aboard the Disney Dream.

Earlier today, Tinker Bell was the latest celebrity to receive her very own star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California and stars not only lined the streets, but walked them as well to help Tink celebrate.

Guests included Walt Disney Imagineer and Disney Legend Alice Davis, Mae Whitman (voice of Tinker Bell), Raven Symone (voice of Iridessa), Pamela Adlon (voice of Vidia), Angela Bartys (voice of Fawn), Brad Raymond (director of Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue) and of course the Pixie Hollow fairies themselves.
In a nationwide effort to reduce energy consumption, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and The Advertising Council launched a new series of public service announcements (PSAs) designed to inspire today’s youth and their parents with ways to establish positive energy efficiency practices.
Energy use is on the rise around the world. By 2030, global energy demand is expected to increase 50 percent above 2005 levels, with electricity demand alone in the U.S. projected to rise 29 percent over the same period. Families can help reduce the demand, by using less and becoming more energy efficient. According to a national online survey of tweens ages 8-12 released by the Ad Council, 87 percent say that saving energy is important and 65 percent believe that saving energy on a daily basis is not hard.

The very special outdoor ‘picnic-in-the-park’ premiere of Disney’s Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue was screened for more than 1,000 families in the local Los Angeles area this past weekend. The event featured a dozen of L.A.’s most popular food trucks, including ‘Top Chef’ alum Brian Hill’s gourmet food truck, along with a bevy of activity stations for the kids – including face painting, Tink tattoos, coloring stations and Radio Disney, who emceed the event. All fairy attendees received Tinker Bell blankets, Tinker Bell glow sticks, Fairy wings and enjoyed many Fairy activities.
D23 is reporting that Tinker Bell will receive her very own star on the world famous Hollywood Walk of Fame on September 21.
Tink will be joining the likes of other ‘fictional’ Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Snow White, Winnie-the-Pooh and Kermit the Frog. Also to be found along the Walk of Fame are two stars for Walt Disney and a special, unprecedented star for Disneyland itself, awarded for its 50th anniversary.
We will publish additional information as it becomes available to us, but as for the star’s location, we are quite certain it will be the second star to the right of somewhere.
Apparently what we know of fairy lore stems from Lizzy’s time with Tinker Bell as we see in this new clip from the upcoming release Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue. After finding some comfort in Lizzy’s doll house, Tink helps Lizzy answer the ages-old question of where fairies come from. Despite that Lizzy is unable to understand Tink when she speaks, the two find a way to communicate and help Lizzy get started on her very own fairy journal.
In this new clip from Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue which comes to us courtesy of Walt Disney Studios New Zealand, Vidia has returned to Lizzy’s home with all of Tinker Bell’s Pixie Hollow friends who have come to rescue her. Releasing Tink from her prison won’t be an easy feat as Vidia explains, however, and it’s here that we learn that even Fawn has her limits.
Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue is available to own on Disney Blu-ray and DVD on September 21 and can be pre-ordered here. Make sure you keep up with all of our news on the newest Pixie Hollow classic by following this bookmark.
We have a couple of new clips from Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue to share with you, Pixie Hollow fans. In this first clip, provided to us by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, Disney Channel star Bridgit Mendler introduces the clip to us from the set of her new music video from the film, How to Believe.
In the clip, the Fairies are over on the Mainland changing the season when Tinker Bell and Vidia come across what looks to be the house of Tinker Bell’s dreams. Until, that is, it turns into a nightmare as Tink is trapped by a clumsy human.
