Long post alert!!! So I really wanted to post this the last couple of
days but was too tired to write a novel. So after this long weekend of
Run Disney events, I was at first annoyed and have been for some months
about the all of a sudden increased popularity of the Disney races and
how difficult it had become over the past 9 months to sign up for an
event but my annoyance turned to joy after More...

And now, here are 23 fun facts I discovered, paraphrased from Disney Trivia from the Vault: Secrets Revealed and Questions Answered.
1. Beauty and the Beast was not Disney’s first movie to be adapted into a stage production in Manhattan, but rather Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which held performances at Radio City Music Hall in late 1979.
2. The “10/6” listed on Mad Hatter’s hat refe More...

#24HourAllNighter Disneyland's Monstrous 24-Hour "All-Nighter" 5/24 6AM - 5/25 6AM. I'm not sure if there is an official thread for guests that are planning on attending the 24 Hour all-nighter at Disneyland. Although, I know many of you are plan on shying away from this event, which means you'll probably hit the parks during lower crowd levels. For those of us that are planning on attending, any More...
#tbt Throwback Thursday. Seemed like a good time to post this since the Mark Twain just came back. From 1961 when we were there. Taken from the shore of the path to what is now NOS, you can see in the background where Big Thunder is now. Notice the old time buildings. That was where the mule rides were. You can actually see some people riding up a path to the left of the buildings if you can zoom 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.”
