**Closed for entries** In honor of *finally* opening my shop (it's a work in progress, link is on my profile)... ;) I'm doing my first online RAK!! One of my handmade coffee/tea cozies in your choice of available pattern - Star Wars (multiple options), Cars, Perry, Minnie & Mickey, etc. Open to all who have 27 points (DM), a simple add me will do, and you can add for others if you so desire :) Re More...
So, this isn't Disney related at all... But my San Diego based mortgage company is HIRING we are looking for a Customer Service agent as the current one will be getting a promotion (she just doesn't know it yet! I love being a part of the magic even if it isn't Disney magic). Anywho - I've been tasked with helping to find a new agent (again, so far four of us have gotten promoted within our compan More...
Our very own AvidDisneyThrifter220 and her man were spotted on LAWeekly looking mighty dapper! Check out the rest of the pics I'm sure there are more MouseWaiters abound :) http://tinyurl.com/au7gcb5 xo
We made it, lots of traffic from SD! And we found Mickey, we were back in the ranch and suddenly he appeared! p.s. This photo is for SUUZinOC, I know she hasn't been around in the lounge a lot lately, but this is for her ;) xo the panic hit me after the photo, which I was/am able to laugh at myself about, it all happened so quick!!
I did it!! The number one priority today was to get a photo with the Beast. What an amazing experience, I was nervous and scared but I am so proud of myself!! My phobia is still present, but challenging myself to face the fear while I'm at the happiest and safest place to do so really has helped. Thank you mousewait for letting me share these small victories with you! xo
Sara and I had heard rumor of the Main Street Barber Shop at Walt Disney World... This trip we turned rumor into reality! Barbara was amazing! She nailed the style Sara requested and was so much fun from start to finish! She made this a priceless memory for us and more than earned compliments at City Hall. They have special "first haircut" ears and certificates for little ones and she was telling More...
So we are back in CA - But I wanted to share a highlight of our trip: WDW Space Mountain with the lights ON!! If Space Mountain is down while you are there hop on the PeopleMover for an unforgettable ride! (p.s. I refuse to put my hands up at all on the WDW Space Mountain) xo
Came home from WDW to a package from my "secret valentine" lol :) thank you @mouseprincess for your amazing kindness! You brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my heart. I cant wait to put the Doombuggy sticker on one of our vehicles. xo
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.”
