I posted this somewhere else but feel like its worth sharing my thoughts in the lounge. I know a lot of people are upset about the ticket issue and there are steps that Admin and others are doing to try and fix it the best way possible. No need to worry about the hotel guests who have not purchased tickets cause they are on hold for that reason and it still looks like tickets will possibly be released at a further date. There is absolutely no reason that you should be making this an issue of how long you have been in the lounge vs somebody else who joined two months ago. If a concert sells out should you get priority because you have been a fan longer? nobody including Admin would have ever thought that almost 300 tickets would be sold in just about 24 hours...Everything will get worked out and everybody will have fun weather its taking over the parks or hanging out in the hall ways I would not worry about it too much...its not like once you go behind the doors is gonna be No Doubt playing live or Erin singing Karaoke..I think its pretty cool that the app has gotten so big and that's due in part to most of your participation in the lounge, past meetups and people seeing the great bond and friendships that we have created with each other .Please don't gripe with admin or Shangz about this as nobody could have ever foreseen that this event would ever be so popular. Just this time last year we had our very first birthday and I think at the most we had was maybe 50 people..I cant begin to tell you how heartfelt I am over the app growing to what it has become. I really do look forward to constantly meeting new members of the community, making new friends and having a great time at the parks..Like I said, everything will work its self out and it will be a wonderful weekend that nobody will every forget.. with that being said, this past week has really been tough on a lot of people and I've been looking at stuff from a different preservative. I'm finding if it hard to complain these days about such petty crap when you've lost a friend in the past week and have another one battling cancer....sorry for the long rant...Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and look forward to seeing you at the parks....oh and I'm a banana TAAAKAAA

A personal favorite is the beautifully hand crafted music box
A fun video from 2013, the story behind the music box with Clopin, Figaro and the even watch the Tangled Tower being put into the Fantasy Faire:
Of course, no trip to the Fantasy Faire would be complete without a visit to the Royal Hall. Loved this artist rendition, that's just how my girls are when they enter the Hall. ::sigh::
Took this next part directly from Disney Parks Blog:
“After walking into our main entrance, you will first go through a garden-like setting before entering the reception hall,” said Michel Den Dulk, Creative Director of Fantasy Faire for Walt Disney Imagineering. “Once inside the Royal Hall, guests will discover a beautiful gothic interior with nice wallpaper, wall cresting, wood finishes and chandeliers.”
Passing through a series of spaces, including the Grand Hall, you’ll have the opportunity to meet as many as three Disney princesses, from classic stories such as “Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty.”
Dont forget to grab a sweet treat from Maurice's Treats! At the time, (isn't there more now?) the adorable cart featured 3 “Twists” and a new signature beverage: Boysen Apple Freeze.
In a tribute to the historic Carnation Plaza Gardens, a shield over the archway leading from Fantasy Faire to Rancho del Zocalo in Frontierland displays the letters “CPG.”
