Tinker Bell flying over the crowds of Magic Kingdom is undoubtedly one of the most magical moments you can see at Walt Disney World Resort.

Every night in Magic Kingdom, fans eagerly gather to watch the spectacular moment Tink takes flight. With the return of the nighttime spectacular Happily Ever After, fans are finally able to see everyone’s favorite fairy soar through the skies once again. For many fans, watching Tinkerbell fly from Cinderella Castle is the highlight of their entire Disney trip.

Now, Guests in Disneyland Resort are getting a flying show of their own. During the new nighttime spectacular Wondrous Journeys, fans get to see Baymax from the movie Big Hero 6 fly from Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Now that two Disney characters are taking to the skies, fans have begun to hypothesize other possible characters that could take flight. One Disney fan made a list that has gone viral for how hilarious it is.

“Three Disney Characters That Should Fly Instead of Tinker Bell”

TikToker Josh_Vaughan has gone viral after creating a hilarious list of Disney characters he would like to see fly over Disneyland. It is safe to say that this list is quite unconventional.

#1. Big Al 

Big Al is the loveable large gray bear who has become a Disney legend after appearing in the theme Park attraction, County Bear Jamboree. This character would look absolutely ridiculous flying over a crowd, but honestly, the image of it all happening is hilarious!

#2: Sonny Eclipse

The second proposed replacement is Sonny Eclipse, the audio-animatronic singer who is best known for rocking the Astro organ at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe. Sonny Eclipse is an iconic character known for cracking up Guests when he starts breaking down. There is no doubt that he would play an awesome DJ set up in the air.

#3: Grogu

Last but not least, this TikToker proposed Grogu. “Baby Yoday,” AKA Grogu, has completely taken over the internet for the last few years. This would make him a super popular and adorable option to take flight. The TikToker points out that this would be especially cool on May 4, Star Wars Day. The only issue I could foresee is that it would be hard to see him.
