I want to give a BIG thank you to Sr_Citizen_Space_Ranger for taking us to the Company D store. The kids and I had to much fun. We found some good bargains! Also my grandkids want to thank you again for all the special gifts you had for them. They were glad to spend time with you at DCA and DL. Mousewaiters are the best people to have as friends! The pic below is of me and my granddaughter Aurora More...
I want to congratulate our own MWr, Sr_Citizen_Space_Ranger on becoming a official CM at DCA! He will work in merchandising starting next month. Hope to see him and other MW CMs during my trip in October.
My sister just told me something interesting that happened to her at the GCH yesterday. She uses a wheelchair when she goes to DL otherwise she has her walker or cane to get around. When her and my nephew were going to the Whitewater Snacks in the GCH, she was told she could not go there with her wheelchair. When she asked the CM what if a person in a wheelchair wants to go there. The CM told her More...
My daughter bought this book at a used book sale. Has anyone read it? It looks interesting from what I've read on the jacket. What dark secrets did Walt Disney have? I'm going to keep an open mind as I read this.
Angels for Abby update: After getting the OK to travel from her doctor, Abby and her family headed down to DL yesterday. Today she is headed to the park, plus it's her birthday! She'll have a birthday lunch at Ariel's Grotto at 11:30. If any of you are going to the park and happen to see her, please wish her a Happy Birthday. I know that may be impossible with the crowds, but miracles can happen.
I cannot believe what just happened to my nephew's wife and son! While my nephew's wife and son were waiting for my nephew to return from getting a Dole Whip, some family (parents with two teenage sons) called my nephew's son a "big tard". Nate, my nephew's son has Asperger's and is big for his age. He is not a "big tard"! He's very sweet and smart, knows quite a lot about Star Wars. It's a good t More...
Another Angels for Abby update. The family will be at the park from Sunday, March 24 to Wednesday, Mar 28. They will be staying at the Paradise Pier and on Abby's birthday, March 24 she will be treated to lunch at Ariel's Grotto at 11:30. Some of you asked for an address to send her a RAK package before the family leaves for DL. The family's address is The Needham Family, P.O. Box 768, Kingsburg C More...
I just wanted to give you all an update on my previous post regarding the donation of funds to help send little Abby Grace to DL for her birthday this month. I just read that an anonymous donor gave the last bit of money to the family to complete the cost of the trip. Also, Abby has started a new regiment of chemo that also caused her to be hospitalized the other night with a fever. Test results s More...
I hope this is the place to post this. One of the teachers at the high school I used to teach at has a young daughter battling cancer. Abby is 5 years old and been fighting this disease for some time. The latest news showed the cancer is still there so she is going to have to undergo another round of chemo. Abby's birthday is coming up in March and her wish is to go back to Disneyland. Make a Wish More...
Does anyone know where the Disney Soda Shoppe is in Hollywood? Is it located by the El Capitan? My daughter and I are going to a Dodgers/Giants game on April 3rd and we'd like to stop there before going to the game.
I just read in The Fresno Bee entertainment section that tomorrow, Saturday, they ate having the 49ers Disney Daze Event, "Where Dreams are Relived" event in Oakhurst. One of the featured speakers is Don Ballard who has written 2 books on the Disneyland Hotel. They will also have Margaret Kerry, the model for Tinkerbelle.
Sr_Citizen_Space_Ranger has asked me to post this picture of a Disneyland RR ticket he found when going through his sister's belongings. Does anyone have an idea of when this may have been issued? I've never seen this type of ticket before.
Please send your thoughts and prayers to Sr_Citizen_Space_Ranger. I just received a text from him that his sister is terribly ill. He is on the way to the hospital to be with her. Please keep them in your thoughts. I just received another text from him and the prognosis is not good. She may not pull through.
Need help here. We have a date for when we will be going to DL. I know there is a MW rate we can get at the HOJO. How does it work? Do I have to call the place and ask for the rate? Plus any idea of what the price is? Anyone use the MW rate there. Thanks.
Just found out from Sr_citizen_space_ranger that the Disney Star Wars 2012 vinylmation collection will be available at D Street in DTD tomorrow. Mickey is Luke Skywalker, Minnie is Princess Leia. Someone posted a picture of the vinyls earlier.
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.”
