I need some pixie dust from my MW friends. I'm here a the parks with my BFF and got a call from my brother saying my dad had a major heart attack this morning. Luckily he got to the hospital in time to have a stint put in and he should be okay. I can't go see him today because he is in ICU so I'm glad I can be at my happy place instead of home worrying.
Had a great weekend at the park! Met BaseballMickey CM, won a RAK from AgentTee, gave away a necklace RAK, met up with some great MWers, and got to spend the day with my brother and his family who were celebrating my nephew's 11th birthday. We didn't know they were at Disneyland - definitely Disney magic!
In park RAK! In support of our friends celebrating Gay Days, I have this necklace! I'm wearing a Cheshire Cat shirt and my son is wearing a striped shirt and a purple hat. In line for Haunted Mansion now. Come find us!
*Winner chosen by random number generator is... HappilyEverAfterZzz!!! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you would like this shipped or if you would like to meet in the park either Saturday or Sunday. Congratulations!
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.”
