While Walt Disney World Resort may be the Most Magical Place on Earth, Disneyland Resort is undoubtedly the Happiest Place on Earth.
But even the original Disney Park makes some blunders from time to time.
If you’ve ever seen vintage Disneyland Park face characters, you’ve probably marveled at how creepy they look. The truth is, Walt Disney Imagineering has come a long way from plastic masks and doll clothes…or have they?
During the Disney100 celebration (commemorating 100 years of the Walt Disney Company), an all-new Disneyland fireworks show has debuted: Wondrous Journeys.
Wondrous Journeys celebrates all of the stories Walt Disney Animation Studios has told during its 100 years of service. During the Disneyland fireworks show, two characters fly over the Sleeping Beauty Castle in an impressive display of Walt Disney Imagineering.

One of the characters is Baymax from Big Hero 6 (2011). The robot companion flies overhead, fire shooting from his rocket feet. Baymax, who is already a fan-favorite character, is already feeling the love from Guests. However, the Blue Fairy is not being received well at all.
As the Blue Fairy flies overhead the Sleeping Beauty Castle, she resembles that of a stiff figure wearing doll clothes. However, one Guest’s zoomed-in photo reveals something even creepier: the mask the performer is wearing.
While Disney fans are loving the Big Hero 6 icon, the magical Blue Fairy from Pinocchio (1940) has not been received well at all.

This video shows the Blue Fairy in action as she flies over the Sleeping Beauty Castle. From afar, she doesn’t look bad at all. The moving wings are a tremendous effect, and it seems like the Blue Fairy has come to grant our wishes. However, Guests are having a hard time getting over the lifeless mask on the performer’s face.
What do you think? Is this a charming face character or the stuff of nightmares?
