I'm a Disney fanatic. I first went to Disneyland in 1955. I have returned at least once a year every year since. I have stayed in the Disneyland Hotel and the Grand
Californian multiple times I have seen the changes to the parks and resorts.

I guess you call this a flashback Friday thought. It is not really far back it's just two years ago. One More Disney Day was The best day because it was 24 hours long. If everything was equal it would happen tomorrow again. Sadly, February 29 only comes once every four years. Let's hope they do it again.
Throwback Thursday. This was my mom and my brother when they came down to visit. The characters are from Afternoon Avenue. Of course you can't miss Dark Wing Duck. For the life of me I can't remember the Fox character with my mom. These pictures are from 1991. Is the first time I could drag my brother down to Star Tours.
I asked the girl taking the picture for us, "Do you know the model of this car?" "No," she answered. "I said an Snowsmobile." She laughed at least. The Midasgold family say, "Hi, all!" Say hi if you see us.
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.”
