Jon Walmsley at Mad T Party and in the pirates band in NOS. Jon played Jason Walton in the old Walton's TV show back in the '70s/'80s. He obviously has had a lifetime love of music, as his character had a guitar in his hand on many episodes of The Walton's.
Please help me congratulate my very good friend IDVandalSkipperCM on her two year anniversary working for Mickey Mouse. She has been my favorite from the first day we worked together in 100 degree heat moving strollers for 8 hours. She is one of the hardest working, most knowledgeable CMs I know but even more, she brings the magic every day. Her work ethic and positive attitude makes her a joy for More...
Just had a great experience with a CM at Space Mt. One of our pictures was deleted because someone else in the car did something they shouldn't have done. CM Kimberlie got us back on the ride immediately & made sure we had our own car, just so we could have a picture. This is just one example of many we have had this week. The CMs at DL are the BEST! Thank you to ALL the wonderful CMs out there th More...
Since it’s now official that Cars Land and Buena Vista Street are now open, I can now post my review online.

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.”
