Due to a change in our finances (my hours got cut back to 3 hours a week), we have had to cancel our Disney trip for the end of this month :( We were planning on coming for my sons' birthdays (July 26th and Aug. 4th). Man, this sucks!! It has already been 2 years since our last visit!
My minis made these wooden toys last weekend at the Lowe's build and grow kids workshop. They are adorable! This weekend, the 22nd and 23rd, they have another free kids project. It is going to be a Monsters University treasure box! We can't wait!
We are planning a trip this fall with friends whom have never been! We are trying to decide between Halloween or after Thanksgiving. Thoughts anyone? Pros and Cons of either time would be very helpful. We have always gone in either late February or July.
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.”
