Are you a D23 member? Come to the premier event of The Odd Life of Timothy Green at the El Capitan on August 6th! Here is the link to buy tickets for $5. Hurry! They will sell out!
Something a lot of people didn't see because they weren't patient.... On one of the walls leading to the entrance of the lounge there is a wall that every now and then will show a dim light and then Walts shadow will appear and turn right and left as if he is looking around. It was pretty cool. The CM who showed us said that she didn't know about it at first and when she saw it she jumped!
In 1901 they have a device that compresses a cyllinder of ice into a perfect sphere to chill your martini in the glass. The sphere has been put under so much pressure that it is NOT porous so it will not melt as fast and dilute your drink!
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.”
