No!! We don't even consider the time period. We go anytime after (not before) and have never had an odd look when it's 12 hrs later even. I can't imagine doing it differently with three kids. I was told once that they allow it knowing that rides close briefly all the time and they never know if you had returned but it was down.
Thanks for the info Lil. Who'sYourDaddy is my hubby's profile. My battery was out on my phone so that was me. My 6 year old will be so sad his favorite ride is closed...especially since we'll probably get military orders to move this summer. My 9 yr old will be thrilled about Indy though!
I haven't tried the sourdough bread. Cute snowman bread though. My must haves vary: Dolewhip, popcorn in souvenir bucket, peppermint chocolate cupcake at Jolly Roger, Hungry Bear chili burger, Mexican food at Rancho, hot chocolate on a cold night...list is too long and too many calories to even think about!
Congratulations!! We had our moment of finding out baby #3's gender at DL. Ultrasound tech wrote it down and put it in an envelope. We went to a shop on main street and asked them to read it without telling us and that we wanted either to buy a baby Mickey or Minnie without knowing which. Then we opened the bag and found out we were having our first girl by the castle...so exciting!! Lily is 13 mo More...
I use that website to decide on which days to go. I then follow Mousewait throughout the day in the park to determine how long the lines are while I'm there so I'm not crossing lands back and forth just to find a long line or that a ride is closed.
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.”
