You know you want a PEZ DISPENSER! :D. we're currently in DCA headed to get ToT fast passes. Happy hunting, MW!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful winter break and enjoying the winter wonderland :). I received two wonderful packages yesterday from MouseWaiters. This is one fantastic community of people. I don't know where to start because I was at a loss for words when I received them. I guess I can start with saying thank you DuckieFan2, Disneygirl19, Jon, and Sadie for preparing the individual stocking More...
Hey everyone! I hope everyone's enjoying their morning :). I finally received a package from one of our very own MWers today; WhatHappensInDisneyland sent one heck of a package, and to my surprise, it had a Star Wars Vinyl. That was quite the topper :). I got lots of goodies that are extremely convenient, and some delicious sweets to make me feel at home. She also packed up a Santa Hat with mouse More...
One month down, possibly 5 more to go! :D. Time is really starting to fly now that I have a daily routine of work then gym time. I had forgotten that I recorded the AP invitational Soundsational Parade on my phone before I left, and I watch that whenever I feel like I'm missing home too much. I'm glad I brought my phone out here :). Hope to see everyone soon :D
Hey MouseWait! I just want to wish everybody a happy Thanksgiving and hope you appreciate and make the best of the time you spend with your friends and loved ones. I just had my great big Thanksgiving dinner with my fellow Marines here. It was a bit saddening to me because I'm not back home with the ones I love, but I'm thankful to have a bunch of Marines with whom I can share the holiday. It wasn More...

Well, I guess you can call this a good find! I've never seen Dumbo before (gasp, I know) and as I was standing in line to pay for my groceries, I look to my left and spot this on the rack, so I picked it up. The lady was kind enough to let me have it for 19.99 :). Gotta love the Marine Corps Exchange :D! I have to mention the funny looks I got from Marines when I grabbed this movie lol.
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.”
