# An official Evil Review of Cars land. Remember no other review is an Evil review, so listen up! To start is hard because this is one serious addition. There are three walkways to enter/exit Cars land. The main, the Bugs land, and the Wharf, which happens to be my favorite. Any entrance will do and I think it is nice to go down the main drag of route 66 the first time in tho. You get thrown right into the movie, full emulsion all the way, even down to how the asphalt looks freshly laid by Lightning. Filmore's is so cool with it's hippie design and was one my favorite non attraction ride buildings as was the fountain in front of the Cozy Cone Motel, although I foresee changes to the fountain because the wind seems to play havoc with it. Now for the meat of this sandwich! The attractions are awesome! Of course one stands above the rest and I think you know which one. Radiator Springs Racer is absolutely Fanfreakintastic! The results of the money spent on this is worth three fold. The journey they take you on, the animatronics, and the thrill of the race is one to be experienced over and over again. My sleeper award goes to Mater's Junkyard Jamboree. This ride looks deceivingly boring. Trust me, far from it. We had a blast on this and giggled like school children throughout the whole ride. A word of caution tho for those with mini MWers. The ride whips you very hard and you will crush your child. Finally Luigi's Flying Tires. I found this entertaining enough to want to ride it again when there is not much of a wait. We rode together and had no trouble figuring out the lean controls, so that made it fun for us. It could easily be frustrating for some and I have heard by word of mouth that those on the fluffy size might drag when riding together. All in all it is a neat concept and I am gladthat I had the chance to experience some Disney past I missed out getting to ride before. Cars land along with the new Buena Vista Street (No I didn't forget about it, I just didn't get to spend the time there I needed to give an honest review. ) are giving Disney California Adventure a great new identity and I think it gives it a great chance of becoming one of the most loved Disney theme parks. I know I can't wait to get back there. C you real soon!

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.”
