    With the Matterhorn refurb construction, I wouldn't plan on seeing Tink fly for awhile.....

    Well I noticed that night when the fireworks just started that the space she comes out of in the Matterhorn wasn't even open so I'm guessing they knew she wouldn't be making her appearance that night since earlier on.

    There is a computer that controls all of Tink's flights during the fireworks shows. If there is any problem with the computer system, they will not have her for safety reasons. I am not certain, but winds would not cause them to just scrap Tink for that show. The entire show would be cancelled if the winds were high enough to affect Tink.

    Not directly, but it's what happens when she meets the wind with her costume and everything. They don't want to take a chance of her... erm... de-wiring.

    Can the winds cause malfuntion to the cord while she is going down?

    There were winds last night. I was actually surprised that there was a fireworks presentation because I've seen it cancelled for less.

    A worldwide shortage of pixie dust will do that sometimes.

They will not shoot the fireworks off the matterhorn or from the other side when winds are gusting at certain elevations and in certain directions, it happened to me twice. Also they will not let Tink fly if the winds at the level she is flying at are too high or swirly (sp). And sometimes they have to stop the show in the middle because they had waited for a window hoping they could do the show, go the window and then the winds kicked back up, thus the stopping you experienced before. Anyway, bottom line is they will cut portions of the show including Tink for safety issues while still presenting most of the show.
    Well Said, its all about the safety.

    I am just guessing but it either had to do with high winds or a malfunction with her flying mechanism.

    No Tinker Bell tonight during Remember... ?

    Tonight, there was no Tinker Bell during Remember... Is there a reason or has she been gone for a while? Last time I went was three weeks ago and she had flew down pretty fast IMO and the fireworks got cut in the middle right after the PotC sequence. Anyone know why she wasn't here tonight? Just a one time thing or is there a problem?
