Tinker Bell needs some pixie dust, also known as pepper spray
A former Disney employee has revealed that grown men used to chat her up while she was dressed in character, particularly as Peter Pan’s fairy guide Tinker Bell.
Sarah Daniels, or as she is known on TikTok @sarahdanielstv, is an ex-Disney princess who has now gone viral on the app for sharing the outright creepy behaviour of some visitors.

Daniels was replying to a comment that read: “So how many dudes hit on your BECAUSE you’re the character? As opposed to because you’re an attractive woman?”
Daniels wasted no time providing an honest answer: “I feel like if dudes are going to be creeps and hit on you, they’re going to hit on you whether or not you’re a character or not.”
If things couldn’t get any creepier than grown men hitting on an actress dressed as a fairy from a kids’ film, she continues.
“But there were many moments, especially as Tinker Bell, where I had married men hand me keys to their hotel room and tell me where they were staying.”
TikTok has been quick to call-out the creepy behaviour.
“These women are there to entertain the children, not to put up with greasy men trying it on with them,” wrote one user.
Another user was quick to say that Tinker Bell was his first crush but this comment did not sit well with others.
“Massive difference between having a crush and being a married man trying it on with a young woman in fancy dress, that s**t is predatory.”
“Yes, Tinkerbell! I was hit on so much as Tink,” wrote another person who you can assume has also played the fairy.
“Did they have separate hotel rooms from their families?” another asked.

In a separate video, Daniels says she is now faced with enormous amounts of men telling her it’s her fault for ‘sexualising Tinker Bell’.
