As the day ends for me, I look at this view and simply feel so thankful for this app coming into existence 3 years ago. I wouldn't have the memories, the fun moments, the friendships, the best friends, nor the extra gigantic love I now I have for Disney! Thank you admin for dreaming of an app that brought sooooo much more!
Since I can't be there today I thought I'd wish MouseWait a very happy birthday with a collage of some of my favorite MW moments. Thank you Admin and everyone who has made this not just an app community but a true Disney family! I love you all, or well...most of you anyway. 😉 Thank you for being such an important part of my life!
Three years ago today MouseWait was approved by Apple and made its debut in the App Store! Several weeks before that, we went to Disneyland to test the app, and I remember sitting in the lobby of the Grand watching as the test wait times registered in the admin panel. I was somewhat surprised because after a year of struggling to build the app, it appeared to be ready for submission. I remember te More...

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.”
