I have the great honor of being chosen as a member of the Cast Choir for Candlelight this year. They had over 320 CMs audition and less than half were chosen. It will be December 7th and 8th, with two performances each night. It will take place on Main Street again this year. I'll try and keep everyone posted when I get more information. :) #Candlelight
So far my best moment while working for the mouse: I was standing at the gates trying to get my tablet to cooperate, and I was getting extremely frustrated. I wanted to just break down and cry (it started off as a REALLY bad day). All of the sudden, a little girl, no more than 2 years old, tugs on my pants and holds up her pink princess Disney autograph book at me, trying to ask if I could sign it 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.”
