Ok, for anyone who has to drive more than 10 hours to make it to the park, when you get there do you maximize the experience by spending every last minute possible in the park or do you relax and just enjoy the fact you are there?
We just got 7 free airline tickets for use before the end of October! This just saved me so much money for our trip to DL that I can hardly believe it is real. I have the best brother in law in the world!
Planning the trip for October and just saw that Pirates will be closed for refurbishment... :(
That is my favorite ride. Do we still go or wait for next spring? The answer of course is go both times but the bank account disagrees.
Greatest Disneyland trip... Drove 11hours through the night, arrived as the gates opened and never left the park until midnight. Then crazy us drove most of the way back before stopping for sleep. Very sleepy but the best time we've ever had! Anyone else have a favorite adventure?
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.”
