I'm having an ongoing debate with a couple of my friends about Corkscrew Hill, specifically, that guy who shrinks you down with fairy dust.
You meet a man in the preshows whose name is McTavish. You go back in time and also meet a character named Duncan. My friends think there is a single character named Duncan McTavish who you see in both the present and the past. I disagree. Here is a summary of the evidence on both sides:

They are the same character:
-Why else would you be given the first name of one character and the last of another? So you don't make the connection until the end when...
-Duncan transforms into McTavish. It's supposed to connect the preshow with the ride and give it a little twist at the end.
-Their appearances would agree with the idea that Duncan is a younger McTavish.

They are different characters:
-They have different voice actors, according to IMDB.
-McTavish's eyes are blue, whereas Duncan has green eyes.
-Duncan hates faries and suggests the whole box be sold to the witch. Why would McTavish send you to your doom after shrinking you down?
-At the end, just before Duncan transforms into McTavish his hatred of faries has vanished. My idea--McTavish disguises himself as Duncan (using magic) just before you see him at the end, in order to rescue you.

What are your thoughts?
This request isn't totally about the characters, but it somewhat is. I'd like for someone that is more familiar with the story to help me fill in the Wiki page.

You can get to the page here:

You can just fill out the story, or even include the question posed above in an informative way (i.e.: there are theories regarding the characters).

Thanks in advance. Let me know if you need any help.
