WALT DISNEY WORLD, Fla. –
April Spielman wanted her boyfriend’s first trip to Walt Disney World to be memorable, so she planned to do something special — dress up like Tinkerbell.
“My makeup took two hours, my hair took another hour, and then I had to spray my body in glitter and paint my nails,” said Spielman, 15, who had purchased a Tinkerbell costume online.
Spielman said she and her boyfriend, who was dressed as Peter Pan, had no problem getting into Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park on Sunday. But when they tried to visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom later, Spielman said security officers stopped them at the front gate.
“They said I looked too good,” said Spielman, referring to how closely her costume resembled Disney’s official Tinkerbell theme park character who poses for photographs with visitors and signs autographs.
