They are also awesome fishing birds. They are not rare to SoCal but we do not often see them at Disneyland. Besides Malard Ducks and coots one will occasionally see cormorants in the moat in front of the Castle.
This photo was taken a few weeks ago. But I will be back Sunday. Love the show. My lady friend and I have seen it together dozens of times. And my new annual pass starts tomorrow. Old one expires today :-)
Just a little not so secret tip. Instead of standing in the outside line. Try going into the little gathering area for the Enchanted Tiki Room. Unless they have changed things that line is almost always much shorter.
Get there first thing in the morning. Go up the stairs and wait for the train station door to open. Talk to the CM member. He will take your name and ask how many. There is only room for 16 total and some days it only takes passengers one time. Some days not at all and some days several. Going again tomorrow ( hopefully)
It's held at Fantasy Faire just to the left of the Castle before you enter Fantasy Land. This is the same structure that used to be the Carnation Pavilion. Big Band Swing dance is a tradition going back until at least the 90's at dL. Unfortunately it was suspended for at least 3 years while they worked on Fantasy Faire. Fortunately Disney brought it back at the first of Summer 2013. Been some quit 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.”
