This was the last weekend to watch the fireworks from the Mark Twain since Fantasmic is coming back on Friday. I had never seen the show from up there so I had to give it a try. Not the greatest viewing area but it was fun. It was also an interesting place to shoot pictures of it. Looking forward to the return of Murphy!
A photo from last night's finale of the fireworks. It started to rain about midway through the show but we were lucky to be under the outdoor patio of Pizza Port and got this great view. the black spaces on the bottom are the Matterhorn on the left and the old rocket jets platform on the right.
Fireworks and the Mark Twain. It's one of those times when there are fireworks but no Fantasmic... which means an opportunity to watch the show with the Mark Twain on the water. There was something more peaceful about watching the show from ROA... less crowded, great reflections and it snows there just like Main Street and Small World. http://www.flickr.com/photos/cobbpr/
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.”
