Dressing like Tinker Bell seems like a pretty fun way to make a living, but a former Disney World employee who had the job shares some of the downsides. Sarah Daniels is an actress who has played various characters at the Orlando theme park, including the famous fairy, and she reveals details about the concert on TikTok. And it seems that some men behaved badly with her even when they were on vacation with their families in “the happiest place on earth.”
Sarah was asked by a follower about being picked up by men while dressed as a character and she says it happened, but she is not sure if it was because of the costume. Thanks to TikTok, she said… “I feel like if guys are going to be scary and hit on you, they’re going to hit on you whether or not you’re a character,” she explains. And she describe some of the most offensive Disney men’s behavior. “There were many times, especially as Tinker Bell,” she says, “where I asked married men to hand me the keys to their hotel rooms and tell me where they were staying. “
But because she was in the Disney character, she was limited in how she could respond to these guys. In a follow-up video, Sarah explains how she handled these situations. “Usually if I had a problem I would pass it on to my character assistant because you’re not supposed to say ‘no’. You’re not supposed to say ‘no’ right away, ”she said. “As a ‘face character’, no is not part of your vocabulary.” So she would distract from the character attendant and they would “take care of the scary dads” for her.
