I'm Melody. :) Disneyland is my happy place, where I can escape the real world of responsibility and chores, and just totally be the fun mom. My favorite Disney movie ever is Pete's Dragon (that should explain my username!)
I get a Disney date night with my husband tomorrow night (okay tonight)! We've been planning this for weeks and he even passed up Lakers tickets for me. Okay well he knew he'd be sleeping on the couch for a week if he flaked on me, but still. ;)
I had so much fun with my little girl yesterday. It was her first time dressing up and she felt so special getting so much attention and I loved seeing her face light up every time someone said "Hi Alice!" I wish I could freeze time forever so she would never grow up, never date, and never be too old to hold my hand. 💜

Have you guys seen this? It's a Verizon commercial comparing R2D2 to an LG phone. I just saw this for the first time tonight and it's so funny! (I'm sorry I couldn't embed the video, I'm on my phone.) http://tinyurl.com/6q5ggv8
I need an honest answer. If the next Disneyland 1/2 marathon is in September and I can now run about 3 miles w/o walking, how hard will it be to be able to run 13 miles in the next 7 months? I've been working out a lot and I've always wanted to run a 1/2, plus my birthday is the day before and it would be such an awesome accomplishment! I think signing up now will give me the kick in the pants to 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.”
