The new Disney Visa Meet and Greet voucher (and rules) as of this month. You must redeem at Kingswell Camera on the same day that you took the picture. Not valid on any other photopass or ride pictures, non-transferable.
I knew that I had seen "Weekday Ping" dressed as Mulan before! I had to steal the left pic from another post (iamdugsmaster, maybe?) since I didn't see her last week, but the one on the right I took with her for Lunar New Year.
#WANTED! Last week I was able to take pictures with all of the 10 Long Lost Friends group, but somehow I missed getting a card from the Sleeping Beauty fairies. I've got extras of many of the others, if anyone has an extra to trade. Thanks!
An interesting thing I never noticed before, but learned from the Dave Smith presentation the other day...the Plaza Pavillion (now home to Jolly Holiday) has two completely different facades. The Main St. side is the white Victorian-ish part on the left and the Adventureland side on the right is part of what is now the Enchanted Tiki Room. Those trees in the middle help disguise the illusion.
The Ariel Undersea Adventure ride at WDW is virtually the same, down to the un-dole-whipped hair, but of course the exterior and queue are completely different. I didn't expect the mural to be different as well.
I don't really consider this a spoiler, as you can't tell very easily where each egg is located, but I'm going to post it in games anyway. ;p The most challenging eggs for me were the Hollywood Backlot and the Wharf.
#Tip: I've seen several posts about starting a pressed penny collection, and I thought I would offer a little friendly advice since I have some photo examples. First, choose only pre-1982 pennies. These are made of copper and when pressed, will not have other "silver" metals show through. The examples below are my own. The ones on the left were gathered at WDW last week, made from "good" penn More...
The line for the Princess Royal Walk is thiiiis long. If you want to meet the princes today, the line closes at 4:30 at the latest, no matter what. If the line reaches the "Brave" sign, it will close early. The next group of characters will not appear until 4:30.
My New Years loot! Calligraphy (supposedly it says "Good luck in the year of the snake" and my name, I haven't read Chinese in a long time), a zodiac caricature, lantern, and snake chain. Next year, I want red envelopes, but instead of money, they can put fast passes and arcade tokens in them. ;p
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.”
