#mwstoryHey all! So my Diz story started almost 47 years ago... Which means you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! Heehee! Anyhoo, my parents met at The Park in the late 1960s when they were both working there and ended up getting married, which is amazing when you consider that at that time they segregated the employees by gender and did not "allow" them to date ( ask me about my parents' cool More...
I wanted to post some if the things I will be bringing to the Mouse Wait Craft Fair next month... Wallets! I'll post more items here and on the event Facebook page. I have fabric in other characters I will be using as well.
Thanks everyone for responding yesterday! Here's a pic of the wishing well at closing last night... I dashed into the park before closing just to drop a penny in for my grandma who we laid to rest Monday. This was our special place for 45 years. And I noticed on the well that the park donates the coins to children's charities! Perfect!
Hey everyone! Disneyland was my special place with my grandma (pictured to the right when the park was 6 months old). We laid her to rest yesterday. :( Please, if you can, drop a penny into the Snow White wishing well by the castle this week in her memory. Her name is Rose. I will be there this evening to do the same. Thanks all you awesome MWers!!! -Tonya
Hi everyone, our first post here after lurking awhile! I wanted to hear how many of you had parents who worked at the Park back in the day? Both my parents worked here from the late 60s through the mid 70s. In fact, this is where they met! So I literally grew up in the Park.
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.”
