Tiny Kline, at age 70, became the very first Tinkerbell at Disneyland. Suspended 146 feet up in the air, she glided down a long wire from the top of the Matterhorn to Sleeping Beauty’s castle at dusk to tap her wand and signal the explosion of fireworks. That tradition continues today, but with younger cast members.

We direct your attention high on the icy slopes of the Matterhorn, where Swiss mountain climbers occasionally can be seen. There are access doors for them to enter/exit safely.

Having real mountain climbers on the mountain is a tradition started by Walt Disney in 1959 when the attraction opened. Over the years, climbers going by the names Hans, Otto and Fritz took on the challenge of reaching the summit.
