questions for disneyland in anaheim

I have a few questions for the people who know about Anaheim's Disneyland.

#1- Who is the person who plays Tinkerbell and flies across the sky during the firework show? If you can provide any more information along with the answer, I am very interested.

#2- A friend told me that when the submarines were open, real people used to be the mermaids, but this stopped when one woman died. I was wondering if there was any fact in this.

#3- Why is Sleeping Beauty's Castle walk way closed down?

#4- How does one get a job as one of the characters at Disneyland?

Thank you very much!

i dont know about any of them dying (though it sounds vaguely familar) but yes, there was mermaids there once. but i think it was before my time. i have a photo of them somewhere, but its not very good. its too bad, i'd love it if there were more mermaids there.
oookee :)

#1: absolutely no idea. Whoever she is, she is quite graceful :D

#2:I'm pretty sure that that's a rumor. You may wanna check around a bit more...but I think that they've always been fake. (plus, there are no reports of any such thing in the disney death count XP)

#3: I HAVE NO IDEA. I've always wanted to go on it (Sleeping beauty is my total favorite of all time) but I guess a lot of people just thought it wasn't interesting enough...or summat.

#4: I believe that there is an audition process. For a character job I think you have to sign up for an interveiw awhile in advance. It's a bit different than a regular CM interveiw.

Hope I helped XP

love love.

#1 and 2 I have no clue..But tinkerbell has a great landing. I got to watch her land in the small box near big thunder. #3 It may be closed for rehab. I know that the fantisy land was getting redone last summer. The King Aruthors "car-a-cell" was totally redone last summer when I worked there. And #4 Auditions and interviews. The audition is huge.. they have a dance studio in the back of the park they use for preformances and practices for paraides. The auditions are fun. you have to wear very well moving clothing and tennis shoes. Be ready to be loud outspoken and ready to preform.
No one died being a mermaid, their costumes were too heavy for them to swim though and they got really hot sitting out on those rocks - that's what I remember reading!!
#1- Who is the person who plays Tinkerbell and flies across the sky during the firework show? If you can provide any more information along with the answer, I am very interested.
Answer: I have no idea who she is. Sorry!
#2- A friend told me that when the submarines were open, real people used to be the mermaids, but this stopped when one woman died. I was wondering if there was any fact in this.
Answer: As far as I know, they were always real people.

#3- Why is Sleeping Beauty's Castle walk way closed down?
Answer: The walkway is closed for refurbishments to the whole castle in preparation for the 50th celebration in may. All I can say is- it's going to be awesome.

#4- How does one get a job as one of the characters at Disneyland?
Answer: There are auditions every few months, and the last one was august 5th. It's actually pretty difficult to become a character.
#2- Yes they were real people, but I dont believe that any of them died =/
#1 There are usually 2 or 3 different women who play Tinkerbell and they work different nights of the week.
Right now they are holding auditions for tinkerbell - apparently there are a shortage of them.
(I dont care if this was posted a long time ago, I have answers, buahahha)
2) Yes, there were real people playing mermaids; you can go here to see a picture/read some information. I don't know if they stopped that because of a death however.
3) It is closed due to fear of a terrorist attack. Not announced publicly but it's the safest thing to assume because the walkway is so narrow and hard to place security cameras for close moderation...
