Hi question: are Sundays at Downtown Disney busy? We are visiting from Texas and I leave to go back on Monday and would like to at least visit downtown since our flights cost a lot. Heavy crowds or not as crowded on Sundays? Thanks!
I was very excited to receive the 2013 Disney Dollar series in the mail today! I have all the years from 1987 till now (minus the years they didn't make them)! Sad I had to pay more than their value but since I'm no where close to D-land I'm thrilled!
So cool. My friend who's uncle is Kurt Russell, got a tour last night with her uncle of Walts apartment and was given the official pin for visiting the apartment! Never seen anyone post this pin before!!!
My friends daughter is in the new Cars Land commercial! In the picture she is the leader of the cars with the pigtails!! Hope this link works; If it doesn't work it called "Kids race power wheels to cars land"
My friends daughter is in the new Cars Land commercial! She is with the pig-tails and her name is Tigerlily!!! Such a cute commercial!
For my birthday today my husband purchased me this Andy Warhol Han Solo painting for me! I'm 1,370 miles away from my favorite place in the world but he made me smile this morning!! Wish I was at Disneyland celebrating my bday today :( but happy to be spending my day with my hubby!
Fun fact: "because of its cartoon nature, it was actually better when a window was cut wrong. At first it was difficult to get the workers to understand that. When they installed a door, they would ask 'do you want it to hang straight?' and our response would be , 'of course not. Crooked is more toony.'"
I'm in Austin tx and we are on tornado watch! It's so incredibly loud with the thunder, lightening and rain! Very scary! Thankful for MW- a small distraction! No sleep tonight! What is everyone else up to?
Fun fact: when the crystal ball was being designed for the Seance Room in HM, artist Leota Toombs (above pic) was asked to play the role of the head a a temporary stand-in during a test of it- but she did auh a great job that her temporary test became the final performance, and the character was named "Madame Leota" in her honor!
I dont know if this is good or bad but had my first Disneyland MW meet-up in my dreams last night! It was awkward! I posted a pic of where I was and instantly a MW friend approached me and had no clue what to say haha! Anyone else have MW meet-up's in their dreams?
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.”
