Dingleberry Dickwad: Seraphym: FTA:   "I've always loved Disney, I've been to Disneyland Paris about six times..."

LOL, FAIL.  Seriously, she loves Disney so much that she's been 6 times to the smaller knock-off and apparently never to the actual Disney World that has 4 other massive parks connected to it and its own Disney city (complete with independent police, fire, utilities etc) around it?  Never mind the other smaller parks like World of Sports or the 2 massive water parks, or Downtown Disney, or... you get the idea.

I can get a flight in late September (to miss the crowds) right now from Bristol UK (closest major airport to where this bint lives) to Orlando for £500.  The Radisson 1 mile from Downtown Disney (½-mile further to the park roads) at 3½ stars is £50/night - she'd want 5 nights minimum to see at least Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and either Epcot or Animal Kingdom in their entirety, totaling £750 pre-taxes.  I have to imagine that she spent more than that for 6 trips to Paris.

"While her blossoming business is going well, she said it's not about making money."

That's good, because unless she has a license from Disney to represent characters from their copyright and IP (which I didn't see in the article), I'm envisioning a large lawsuit against her for royalty infringement.  Disney does not "look the other way" in this department - you don't acquire Marvel, ABC, ESPN, A&E, and LucasFilm by looking the other way on copyright and they have an established history of copyright/IP lawsuits.  They're actually an awesome company, but you gotta play by their rules.

/your parade, let me piss rain on it.

You'd likely be wrong. A train from London to Paris, that takes all of 2 1/2 hours costs 40 pounds one way. Makes a two way trip 80 pounds. Vastly cheaper than your 500 pound round trip right off the bat.


£80 * 6 = £480, which is slightly less than, not vastly cheaper than, £500.  That doesn't include hotels or European taxes.

Also, I was comparing from Bristol, nearest airport to where she lives as I understand, as I clearly stated.  Airfare from Heathrow to Orlando is £450 for the same dates I picked, less than those 6 hypothetical train trips, which by the way are 5 hours from Bristol to Paris.  There are enough British in Orlando all summer long that it can't be a difficult trip to fund (especially considering some of the chavs that show up).

For travelling 6 times to the knockoff and being "such a fan" she could have come at least once to the main park with the most to offer... it's principle.

/I'm sure Disney Paris is nice and all that, no expense spared etc., but never been to that one as I live next to the "real thing" anyway

Dingleberry Dickwad: LazyMedia: I would just like to point out that Tinkerbell is a jealous biatch from hell. Little girls should not emulate Tinker Bell; she's horrible.

The original Tinkerbell from Peter Pan is, sure. But in the last few years Disney has put out a number of direct to video Tinkerbell movies that deal with her and other fairies and Tink is no longer a psycho jealous biatch.

/what? My kid watches a lot of Disney channel.


Also, not just that, but also reasonably considered a STEM role-model for girls.  Tinkerbell loves building things - she's an engineer.  My five year-old often watches the Tinkerbell series and then goes off to play with her Goldie Blox sets, or LEGO.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict someone of enough authority at disney will intervene to prevent the normal loosing of the dogs of IP, and that this will be brought into the fold of official operations. She'll have some additional rules to follow, but otherwise will get to operate with legal blessings.

The important question here is: will she let Aladdin?

PleaseHamletDon'tHurtEm: LazyMedia: I would just like to point out that Tinkerbell is a jealous biatch from hell. Little girls should not emulate Tinker Bell; she's horrible.

This. She's got attempted murder to her credit, but you'd have to be one of the dozens of people anymore who've read the book to realize it.

Disney's continued savaging of the original Peter Pan IP gives me a sad.


Dude, in the Disney movie she told the Lost Boys that Peter ordered them to kill the Wendy Bird.

Dingleberry Dickwad: JustGetItRight: Dingleberry Dickwad: Tinkerbell movies that deal with her and other fairies and Tink is no longer a psycho jealous biatch

No, but she still has a terrible temper and displays both poor judgement and a lack of impulse control.

In Tinker Bell she stirs up the thistles and nearly keeps spring from coming.

In Lost Treasure she loses her temper and breaks the wand-thing, makes a trek to the wish mirror and then proceeds to again lose her temper and blow her only shot at restoring it.

In Great Fairy Rescue she refuses to listen to warnings and gets her pixie arse caught in a trap and locked up in a birdcage.

In Secret of the Wings she almost gets her sister killed, gets Pixie Hollow iced over, and manages to also break her wing.

In Pirate Fairy she happily helps Zarina engage in illegal and dangerous pixie dust experiments, eventually leading to Zarina's turn to piracy and eventual theft of the blue dust.

The girl simply can't control herself.  I'm expecting any day to see her knocked up and not knowing who da baby daddy is after a drunkenly pulling a train with Terrance, Clank, and Bobble.

/Why yes, I do have a young daughter.  How could you tell?

Well damn. You paid a hell of a lot more attention to those movies than I did.


No kidding. I usually just turn the sound down and keep fapping.

Well, they got part of it right then, I guess. The movie was so damn awkward I only watched the end to see how they managed it.

give me doughnuts: I wouldn't mind a visit from Tinkerbell.

Ditto. While she's freakishly small in the movies, she's always been one of my favorite Disney women.

/wish Gemma's Tinkerbell outfit had a shorter skirt

So she's like a cosplayer for hire basically?

//didn't read past the first paragraph or so of the article.
