Tinker Bell denied access into Magic Kingdom

Disney. The Magic Kingdom. No place on earth better suited to tug at the heart-strings, awaken old memories and bring out the kid in all of us. Especially if you’re a girl who has always dreamed of being a Disney princess.

So, when the chance came for fifteen-year-old April Spielman to finally visit the “happiest place on earth”, she made no haste.

She spent months making costumes for she and her boyfriend, Peter Pan for him, Tinker Bell for her, and spent hours perfecting her hair and makeup, just to make the occasion as perfect in reality as it was in her dreams.

The little girl inside her was living her dream. That is, until, she reached the entrance gate to Disney World.

Disney officials told her she couldn’t come inside until she took off the costume.

That’s right. Employees thought April looked so much like their own “official” Tinker Bell, they were afraid park-goers might confuse the two. Turns out there’s even a policy prohibiting adults from wearing costumes into the park.

The park gave her a t-shirt and made her change before entering, ruining her dream, she says, of finally being a real disney princess. So much for being the happiest place on earth.
