Tonight I wish I was sitting in New Orleans Square, over looking the Rivers of America, with a nice warm drink. It's one of my absolute favorite places to be at night, ether with good company or some alone time away from a busy life. It's such a beautiful and peaceful place to be, with the Mark Twain (I really love the boats and trains) and the lights reflecting off the water. With little to no crowds around...quite and peaceful. I'm always amazed at this place Walt built, such passion, imagination, love and detail. I love how the things I love the most aren't even about the characters, or the like. It's about the feeling you get when you walk through the gates. A feeling of hope, optimism and carefree fun! It feels like home. Every time I'm there I can't help but to pause and take it all in as if it were the first time. How lucky we are to have this all so close to us. A place we can go to recharge, make wonderful memories with friends and family....and the cares of the world just slip away. Tonight I wish I was sitting in New Orleans Square, sipping something warm overlooking....the magic!

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.”
