We were saddened to hear that LaceySue passed away tonight. She was one of the original members of the Lounge and participated in the first highly publicized meetup in the early days of MouseWait. Her vast knowledge of Disneyland added credibility to the Lounge in it's infancy, and she was always the first to post breaking news. Our prayers and condolences go out to her family tonight. Please post More...
After research, I've come up with this so far as a MW back story. Nobody knows who Erin is. Pirates will hit on your wife. Vampires are creepy. Dusty thinks he's awesome and is in a band. Coaster is number one. Did I get it right anything else big I missed? I don't know why I find this so interesting.

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.”
