One time I was waiting in line with my young cousin to go see Tinkerbell. He was super excited - at the time Tinkerbell was one of his favorite characters. This was after they opened Pixie Hollow. Obviously, the line was super long. No one else in my family wanted to wait in line 45 minutes to see a character and thought he’d be too young to care, but I knew he wanted to see her so I volunteered.
As we were waiting he started to play with some other little kids in line while me and the parents and two young gentlemen who didn’t appear to have any children talked. As we moved we noticed a group of ducks waddling across the line (they lived in the little pond around Pixie Hollow). These were probably the bravest ducks I’ve ever seen - very used to people from living in the park so long.
The kids were very nice to the ducks, walking up just close enough to get a good look and then running away giggling whenever the ducks looked at them. The two gentlemen in line happened to have some bread and so gave each of the kids a piece. It was the fastest 45 minutes of my life watching these kids feed and play with these little ducks, we almost didn’t see the line move.
Eventually we did see Tinkerbell. She spent a good 5 or 10 minutes taking to my little cousin, looking at his pins, and taking pictures. At the end he gave her a peck on the cheek and a big hug - some of my favorite pictures from Disneyland are his visit with Tinkerbell.
