Thanks to the "How to spot fake disney pins" I was able to catch this little beauty in my work traders. Other than the eyes, there is some bad bubbling/discoloration on the flower petals. I'm going to educate my cast about this stuff soon. :)
They got me. As you can see this seems like an obvious fake. The "Ebter" any time between is the giveaway. Anyways, what is the proper etiquette for getting rid of the fake pins. Turn in to city hall? Does DL care about fake pins and want to see what's out there? The terrible part is this pin was from a cast lanyard. BE CAREFUL PIN TRADERS.
Can you help me out Strawberry? Is this an authentic pin? My hearts saying no cause the coloring in the mouth is off and it feels extremely light in weight. I may still keep it because I'm trying to collect chip and dale. (hope this came out better)
#Pin Spotting- All of the following are fake pins. 1) this is from the 2012 DLR Hidden Mickey set. You can tell its fake because the lines are thick and the name "Sagittarius" is not written straight. 2) This Cruella Bowling pin is completely off colored (has more of green tone) compared to the artist rendering in our CM Pin book. 3) Mickey Sorcerer- Mickey's left eye is completely black.

A personal favorite is the beautifully hand crafted music box

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.”
