Hey all! I'll be taking my first trip to WDW later this year and would love to get a little more educated on the parks before I go. So, does anyone here know of any good books written about WDW? My favorites on Disneyland are The Disneyland Encyclopedia by Chris Strodder and David Koenig's Mouse Tales and More Mouse Tales, so I'm looking for stuff kinda like that, not just like basic tourist info.

Live! So nice to be back! Nervous as heck because I'll be leaving halfway through the day to audition for the BFA program at Chapman University, but also happy because this is probably the best place to be to relieve stress!
Shout out to an awesome cast member, Moses who works at the Plaza Inn! He noticed that it was my best friends birthday and went out of his way to do all kinds of special things for her! We will be leaving a compliment shortly!
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.”
