"Don't tell him, Carlos! Don't be cheeken!"
and the entire section they took out and replaced with Davy Jones (booo!!): " no fear have ye of evil curses says you. Arrghh. Properly warned ye be says I..."
I just love Pirates.
Ok, so now that I'm thinking about it... I won tickets for that media day right before the 50th anniversary celebration. When we were on POTC, there were a couple of imagineers on our boat talking about the ride. I think one may have been Marty Sklar, but that was before I really knew much about him.
They had it in august for quite a few years. I didn't understand why they would pick one of the hottest months to go dressed in heavy black clothes. My cousin said they probably did that to weed out the posers. Lol.
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.”
