Tinker Bell's Mother's Day Fun Fact

Gina Rock, the longest flying Tinker Bell in Disneyland history, was pregnant with both of her children while flying across the castle for the fireworks show. She gave birth to her daughter in 1984 and then her son in 1987.

Because her doctor was concerned for her safety while being pregnant, he had Gina's mother go to the top of the Matterhorn to inspect the harness set up and fitting to approve it for flight. The doctor respected her opinion because she had worked with doctors for so many years. She said Gina would be safe to fly until she was 4 months along. Both times she was pregnant coincided with the downtime of the fireworks flight. With her second pregnancy, she got a doctors note to give the okay to Disney for her to fly. Disney didn't fly Tink in the winter time.
Gina said this was her favorite Disney magic, becoming a mother.
She flew from 1983-2005.
