If you have not been to the Walt Disney Family Museum, now might be a good time to plan a trip! Today's Groupon for the Bay Area is half off tickets. They are $10. each with a limit of 4 per person. Expires June 30th, 2014 and they are not valid December 26-29th. Limited availability, so if interested, act quick! The museum is so well done and in a beautiful location as well. 10 bucks is a steal!
My dinner from Napa Rose earlier this evening. I started with the "Smiling Tiger Salad". Asian greens, Tempura Lobster and Spicy Beef with a Coconut-Lime Vinaigrette. I then had the Pan Roasted Diver Scallops with a side of Truffled Mac & Cheese. Finished the night with "The Best Hot Chocolate Ever". And boy, was it! The hot chocolate itself is quite a treat, but you also get homemade hazelnut and More...

Good evening fellow MW's! I'm finding myself replying more on posts so I thought I'd better introduce myself. My name is Teresa. I'm from Northern California, Napa to be exact. I downloaded MW years ago when it was pretty new. I had lots of technical difficulties with it so I pretty much gave up on it. 😱 Recently I've been following lots of MW's on Instagram so I thought I'd come back and give 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.”
