Hi Everyone!! This is a RAK of a different kind. Or maybe I should call it sharing my blessings or an SMB!! (sorry for posting so late, I know some of y'all were wondering when I would post!) I won the Disney raffle to get the wristband to buy the special cars type pins and pin sets for this friday, aug. 17. The artists will be there if you want This is a special edition pin event and Disney usually makes everyone wait in line and there is a mad crush of people all trying to buy just a few pins. this time Disney raffled off only a few entries (250) to be able to come buy the pins, and I won!!! And I want to share my blessings too!!! I am only buying a couple of pins so I thought why waste the chance to buy and to offer it to anyone from MW to buy the pins too, especially since they are limiting the sale so much and the pins are awesome! I think that Disney is trying to get regular collectors a chance to buy the pins. And I would like anyone that wants these pins to be able to get them if I can help. This is a link to the pins http://eventservices.disney.go.com/pintrading/event?id=6273. If you win the chance to buy any pins, I will have you paypal me the funds and then I will either mail them to you or meet you at the parks. I get to go to the event and buy one set each of the key set, the hood ornament set, the car show trophy set, and the hubcap spinner set. they are all limited editions of only 200 to 250 sets. price range from $65 to $95. then I can buy up to two each of the limited edition pins (l.e. of 500 only), Woody Car, Buzz Car, Hamm Car, Sully Car, Mike Wazouski Car, and Yeti car for 11.95 each. then for $12.95 each, I can buy two of the Jessica's Body Shop, Oswald's Filling Station, Dumbo's Car Wash, and Pixie Powder Coatings. (All L.E. of 500 only). I will end the contest on Tuesday night, and post those who get to buy on wednesday morning. I will dm you my info and you will need to paypal me the funds by thursday morning so in case of cancellations I can pick new winners. If you love pins, this is your chance to use my winning entry to buy some limited editions so I hope there are some of you out there who want these, thought I would try to share this if I could. They are only letting the general public buy what is left from the morning sale at 1pm and then all are gone. Please tell me which pin you want to buy, you can sign up for all of them and up to two each of individual pins, and one set of each set. I do not care how many you want to try for, I will put each name in the queue separately for each pin or set anyway. You must have been on mousewait for at least a month so I know who you are and hopefully you aren't going to sell them immediately on ebay. Iif you want to meet me at the event after 2pm friday in DD, I can give you your pins then or we can meet another day or I can mail them too!!! hope I explained this well and God bless to all of you!!!

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.”
