Gina showed me this T-shirt that she has from her time as Tinker Bell. She said that she was proud to work with her crew for over 21 years. Gina and her crew used to give each other end of the season gifts every year. One of her crew members designed this T-shirt for every one in 2004. Gina still takes it everywhere with her as she treks from state to state for her Disaster Recovery work.
Gina has a new podcast interview for 2020 coming in a few weeks. She will be recording this week with the Creating Geeks Podcast.

Elvis Meets Tinker Bell

Sometimes the Cast Members of Tinker Bell's team would surprise her by dressing up at the receiving end of her flight. On this particular night, they were dressed as Elvis. This was her favorite of their costumed appearances. In the background, you can see the mattress used for Tinker Bell to crash into.

Tinker Bell Has Flown Away

I am sorry to say that Gina can not make it to Mouse-Con now. Her work with FEMA has deployed her to the middle of the US to assist after a flood. She is very upset that she can't make it back to California to meet everyone at Mouse-Con this year, no one can stop Mother Nature. She has to go where she is needed. -Joshua Shaffer
