The Sugar Plum Fairies first appeared during the Nutcracker Suite in Fantasia. They are small beautiful female fairy-like girls of different colors who are responsible for sublimating the nature, the night, in autumn and winter.
As dawn breaks over a meadow during the "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy," tiny fairies sprinkle drops of dew on every flower and stern.
In the final musical segment, "Waltz of the Flowers," autumn fairies color everything they touch brown and gold with their wands. Then the frost fairies arrive and everything becomes part of an icy, jewel-like pattern among falling snowflakes.
The Sugar Plum Fairies have their own spell card in Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom called "The Sugarplum Fairies' Dewdrop Spiderweb".
