FASTPASS Plus Experience
While at Walt Disney World last week, I was fortunate to participate in the new Fastpass+ system at Magic Kingdom. It was only the second day of the entire park changing to this new system and moving away from the paper system, like what Disneyland still has today.
Now, what I’m going to explain may vary and different from others becaus More...
Finding Nemo is NOT closing forever. Everyone is assuming that it is from something unofficial from another site.

On January 6, 2014, Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage will close for an extended refurbishment, to reopen in late 2014. During this time, the 5 million gallons of More...
Dear Sweet LaceySue.......You've touched all of us in one way or another. About an hour ago I leraned of your passing. I'm very sorry for all the pain you endured. It is a terrible loss for the MW Family. I will not dwell on the sadness that we all have. I choose to focus on the good that you gave to us. The amazing knowledgebase in your brain, the wacky sillyness you threw out there, the More...
We were saddened to hear that LaceySue passed away tonight. She was one of the original members of the Lounge and participated in the first highly publicized meetup in the early days of MouseWait. Her vast knowledge of Disneyland added credibility to the Lounge in it's infancy, and she was always the first to post breaking news. Our prayers and condolences go out to her family tonight. Please post More...

To: Instagram users. I was thinking of starting a MW collection of Disney photos! If you want to join in and help promote MW with me, just take any of your Disney photos with "@mousewait #mousewait". MW photogs are some of the best I know, so I know it'll get a lot of exposure!
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.”
