Ok guys, I know I'm late but I would like to share with you guys my 2 day amazing b-day trip. My amazing husband Samtrooper made it all happen and I couldn't be any happier with how everything turned out. The first day we had breakfast at Ariel's Grotto, I got so many "Happy Birthday Princess" from all the Disney Princess, it made me smile for ever. Later on I met up with JenInWonderland (we have the same birthday and age, how rad!) For dinner time we went to Goofy's kitchen. It was so much fun, got to meet so many characters even Pocahontas! My fave was Snow White because we talked forever and just when I thought we were done, the waiters came out with a princess jewelry box cake and Snow White sang happy birthday to me as well. Later on at night we spent the rest of the night at ElecTRONica taking in everything as much as possible. We got coins from Flynn's Arcade as souvenirs, we had Glowjitos and Digitinis. We got our faces painted with glow in the dark paint and danced the night away. Day 2: Started off with breakfast with Minnie and Friends at the Plaza Inn, so much fun and the food was great! I spent most of the day at Tomorrowland and an amazing newlywed couple found me, wished me a happy birthday and gave me a Boba Fett vinyl, so awesome (I'm terrible and forgot names, please forgive me) Also I had In-Park RAKs and a lot of mouse waiters found me, yay! Afterwards we rode the monorail to dtd and we rode up in the front for the very first time, it was such an awesome experience (we even had to stop for a bit so some ducks could move) Visited Trader Sam's for the first time, had some drinks and appetizers, honestly best bar ever hands down! Later we had the Blue Bayou for dinner by the water, I had the surf and turf, so good. Also our waiter Tim was so awesome and of course I had another princess jewelry box cake coming, only this one was fancier, loved it. Before the night ended we went back to ElecTRONica to experience it for one last night, I even got a pic with Castor (Zuse), so rad! Also we ended the night with some Astro Blasters and the ride broke down, first time ever that happens to us. All in all, it was the best birthday I ever had, best time at Disneyland I ever had. My husband did an amazing job planning everything out. Also I want to thank everyone in Mouse Wait that wished me a happy birthday, you guys are awesome and you guys made my b-day extra special with just that. Sorry for the long post, toodles! :)

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.”
