  • Where can I meet tink and her friends 2/19/2010 thru 2/25/10?

  • Speaking of the Orange Bird!! Why not bring him back to Adventureland for the 40th! Speaking of Adventureland: Please give Jose at The Enchanted Tiki Room at MK Back his show!!!!! My family really wants to sing “Let’s All Sing Like The Birdies Sing!” Ill even volunteer to be a stand in for the Barker Bird if that would help! 🙂 Seriously, Jose and his flock are my favorite (and I am not joking either!) Disney characters…. Was true ever since I saw the show back in ’71/’72 at WDW! My parents said when I was told back then that we were going to go to WDW that I would yell “TIKI BIRDS!”, not Mickey, not Pirates, not any of that…. Even though I understand as an adult the Tech behind the show, in my Heart Jose is alive and is my friend.
