Tinkerbell Spreads Magic on Disney Cruise Line

| August 3, 2008

One of the things I love about Disney is that they continue to surprise me.  Sometimes in a good way and sometimes in a not-so-good-way.  It can be a new ride, show, attaction, restaurant, hotel room or a service they provide that I didn’t know existed.  This blog falls into that last category.

Sue Ellen, one of Dreams Unlimited Travel agents, just returned from a wonderful cruise on the Disney Wonder.  Sue Ellen has sailed on Disney Cruise Line more times than I can count and I know she loves it as much as any of her clients.

On this last cruise Sue Ellen did something that I had never heard of, which she shared with the rest of the Dreams Unlimited Travel family in email.  Sue Ellen has agreed to let me post her email word-for-word, including her pictures.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

I’m not sure how many of you know this, but if you lose a tooth on the cruise Tinkerbell will come to see you.

Trevor lost one of his bottom teeth during our cruise.  Here is what was in our cabin when we returned for bed in the evening (the pictures didn’t come out all that clear, but I think you can see it okay.)  It was a really cool thing to come back to, and Trevor was THRILLED.  He has told everyone that will listen that Tinkerbell came to see him instead of the tooth fairy, and left him money too!  It made our day.

It started with the pixie dust on our bed.

The pixie dust spilled out over onto the floor leading to Trevor’s bed.


Then there was the card and pixie dust on Trevor’s bed.

Then finally the card.  There was a picture of Tinkerbell, and the note (filled with pixie dust) says Trevor…I heard you lost your tooth!  Congratulations!  Tinkerbell

SPOILER ALERT:  It was absolutely amazing (we did sneak in first and put the money under the card, but I think if you give guest services the money they would make sure that was with the card too.) What I did was go to guest services on the ship after he lost the tooth and asked for an envelope to put it in.  She then asked all of the details, and voila…after dinner Tinkerbell had been in the cabin and left her card for Trevor.  It was an awesome thing and he was mesmerized.

    Thanks for sharing Sue Ellen. I’m glad Trevor really enjoyed it.

    Hey John. If I lose a tooth listening to a podcast do I get anything?

  • Cyrano

    I agree John there are times when it is the little things that Disney does which make the best memories.
    Thanks for sharing Sue Ellen :)

    Wow what a special memory that will be. Too bad my kids have already lost their baby teeth!

  • MenashaCorp

    How sweet! What is most endearing about this is it’s not something you “arranged.” To think that such attention to detail and magic still exists… Thanks for sharing!!

  • mommyceratops

    That is so cute!!
    My first thought was WHAT IS THAT ON THE BED!!
    Anyone want to knock my tooth out on the cruise?

  • atinkerbellmom

    Yes, she came to see my DD too on our March 1,st Magic Cruise. Was really special. DD got a certificate with twirls of Pixie Dust (glitter) on it… It was special. I heard that sometimes the kids get Disney Dollars as well, but we made sure she got a Lincoln instead of the standard Washington~helping out Tink. After all look at my screen name which I use on all my Disney Forums…. ((((HUGS)))))…

    How cool is that?!?!?! I love the little touches that Disney sometimes does. :)

    That is awesome! My daughter just started losing her teeth. Maybe she will have one fall out on the cruise in May. So cool


  • stinasmom

    Thanks for the story and pictures! My DS7 should be due to lose another tooth by then… it would be great to make this happen for him!

  • UrsulasShadow

    Soooo…..what happens if I lose my dentures???

  • Chickie

    That is very sweet!
    My dd lost a tooth at the airport in Orlando while we were waiting for our luggage. I got a Disney Dollar at the front desk of our hotel and put that under her pillow that night. I told her that when you are at Disneyworld, Tinkerbell plays tooth fairy and brings all the kids Disney Dollars! She was so surprised!
