My brother, CM_Oregonducksfan, said I should post this throwback photo even tho it's not Thursday. This pic is from April 2003 when I brought my daughters down to Disneyland for their first visit. Now this summer, I will have a new granddaughter to bring to Disneyland for her first visit and first pair of ears. My, where does the time go?
My daughter is reading EVERYTHING Disney prints because of the spelling errors, she just found this one. I'm sure someone has posted this before, but I'm proud of her for catching something I sure didn't!
Live: I love the new Carsland, it has freed up the line for one of my favorites! I aw so excited hen I saw the time on MouseWait I said loudly "OMG, Midway Mania is only 15 minutes!". My teenaged daughter says "shhhhhh mom, don't tell everyone or they will all go over there." I apologized, I just couldn't contain my excitement. 😃
Does anyone have this problem with your iPhone on Mousewait only this "done" box covers up part of my keyboard. I can't use symbols and some of my letters. It's so annoying. It only does it on MouseWait.
I love Disneyland! It's so magical and the Disney ImaginEars are always a step ahead of the "other" themeparks. Heck, they found a way to make it snow in Southern California. So my question to the ImaginEars is......"when will you find a way to air condition the outside?" now that would be cool!
I look forward to MouseWait Trivia every morning, however, I wish that when you got an answer wrong (which is most of the time) it would tell you the correct answer so that I could learn something new.
RAK for those who could not meet me in the parks. This RAK is for one of my woodburned trinket boxes. It's Donald and Daisey. Just say add me. This closes Thursday at 8pm Disneyland time and I will announce the winner next Friday at three pm Disneyland time.
OT, but had to share a laugh: MIDDLE AGE TEXTING CODES: ATD -at the doctor. BFF -best friend fell. BTW -bring the wheelchair. BYOT -bring your own teeth. FWIW - forgot where I was. GGPBL -gotta go, pacemaker battery low. GHA - got heartburn again. IMHO -is my hearing aid on? LMDO -laughing my dentures out. OMMR -on my massage recliner. ROFLACGU -rolling on floor laughing and can't get up. TTYL -ta More...
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.”
