Pages of banter and speculation have arisen from the photo of the model of the new Fantasyland Fantasy Forest expansion at the Magic Kingdom ever since we first brought it to you (incidentally, you can see a close-up of the model’s Sleeping Beauty cottage in the spring 2010 issue of D23 magazine). Much of which has to do with the plans for Pixie Hollow, for which the model shows an attraction similar to a new one coming to Disney’s California Adventure, but some say said plans have since been scrapped in favor of a ‘next generation,’ interactive meet & greet with the Disney fairies.
One of a kind framed originals will be available. Both measure 18″ x 24″ unframed. Santa Hat Figment ($2100) is oil on canvas and Tink’s Christmas ($1600) is in watercolor.
Both will be also be available in a 95 piece limited edition giclyee for $350 for Figment and $400 for Tink. Open edition petite prints will also be made available.
Park admission will be required to attend the event.

While the Clumsies all clamored over the arrival of Princess Tiana at Walt Disney World, a little pixie dust fairy flew in under the radar and made a home for himself at Pixie Hollow in the Disneyland Resort. Visitors will also discover that Autumn has arrived and has magically transformed the world around them with the deep greens, crimsons, oranges, golds, and browns of harvest time.

In a step to help provide environmental awareness (and perhaps a tad of promotion), the United Nations named Tinker Bell the ‘Honorary Ambassador of Green’ early Sunday.
‘We’re delighted Tinker Bell has agreed to be our Honorary Ambassador of Green,’ said Kiyo Akasaka, Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information. ‘This beloved animated character can help us inspire kids and their parents to nurture nature and do what they can to take care of the environment.’
The Autumn Revelry is upon Pixie Hollow and it’s up to Tinker Bell to create the scepter used to replenish the pixie dust tree and keep Pixie Hollow going. But when things go wrong, she must venture out of Pixie Hollow on her own on a secret quest to right what has been wronged.
Will she soar? Or will Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure bite the pixie dust? Read our review to find out more.
