Surely she'll know what to do. Mavis is happy to help, but her scheme doesn't exactly go as planned. Before long Wendy is racing around trying to save everyone at the hotel. In doing so she literally spreads herself too thin--attaching blobettes (mini versions of herself) to whomever she encounters.
