Hello friends! First just let me say thank you to everyone for the well wishes and pixie dust. We got lots of text calls and messages to check in. I'm home now a little later than expected due to some complications but all is well. I still have quite a bit of pain but I'm on the mend. I won't go into details about my stay in the hospital just that it was nothing life threatening and I'm going to b More...
Paging @dizneegrl! Your RAK arrived on a much needed day! Littlelost has been super sick and once I gave him his new toy (after I cut the tags off) he hasn't put it down. Thank you so much! And lostfella says thanks for the jelly bellies. I had one and he wolfed down the rest lol
In light of the news of Diane's passing today I'd like to share a story from my days as a CM. I was working at the main entrance one day doing the guest research grind and having an ok day. I stopped another guest and politely asked to scan her ticket. She obliged and handed it to me. I scanned it and noticed the back said "gold pass."

Paging PhilipRocks!! Your RAK arrived today! I can't tell you how excited I am. I read it to littlelost tonight before bed and he knocked right out. The notes on the package cracked us up. Thank you again! I plan on reading this to littlelost as well as any future siblings he might have :)
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.”

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.”
