I live in Lancaster, CA. Mom of 4 beautiful children. We love Disneyland and everything Disney. I collect NBC, Chesire Cat and Haunted Mansion things. I love to spend my free time cross stitching the Thomas Kinkade Disney Dreams collection.
Had a wonderful 3 hours at DL today. When we first arrived we were given FPs to Soaring. Then we hit TOT and off to DL. We went on BTMR, Buzz and AstroBlasters. As our last ride we headed off to Space. On our way up the ramp we met some lovely MWers who added my family to their families FP. It was a wonderful day at DLR!!!
My hubby surprised the family yesterday with Premium APs. My kids were so excited. We told them we were going to the zoo. Once we passed the zoo my older kids started singing Disney songs. I told them "if you think you know where we're going don't say anything." Once we got off the freeway at Disney Drive they we're all smiling and saying "really? Really? You mean it?" It was so much fun. Thank yo 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.”
