Sweet Valentines date with my Valentine of 20 years tonight!! Being that it was just the two of us, we went slow, and took the time to admire some of the wonderful details. Loved spending a little extra time, like we used to do when we were dating, in NOS... 😊
Our daughter has her own "Disneyland Plaid Doggy" to escort her around the "hood" on Halloween! She came up with this costume for our dog Flynn all on her own! I think it's pretty stinkin' cute and clever! 😊 We also thought that of we couldn't find one, we wouldn't need a costume, he could just go as the dog from Pirates of the Caribbean! But this costume wins this year!! 😊
I just want to say that the Birthday Bash celebration last night was so awesome!! I loved talking with so many of you!! I thought La Brea Bakery was such a great location, and the staff there served our crowd beautifully! The planning team went above and beyond... There really aren't words to express our gratitude to all who helped make this event so fun and welcoming for everyone!! Once agai More...
Our server went to check if there was anyone to write on the plates... I wanted "Mother Daughter Weekend"... He said that there wasn't, but if we didn't mind waiting a few minutes longer, they would have someone up in the club write it special for us!! I love that he went the extra mile to have this special dessert made for my girlie!! 😊❤️
When I was here about a year ago with my older daughter for a mother daughter weekend, my daughter got to meet and take a pic with Bella Thorne... Now I am here today with our younger daughter, closing out our mother daughter weekend, and my girlie got to meet Olly Murs (sp??). Haha!! We didn't know who he was, but were told he is huge in the UK and opened for One Direction! Fun!! 😊👍
I'm so bummed that mine wasn't with this one, but going through a box of old letters and things from our dating days, I found Admin's first annual passport!! He said I could post a picture of it here! This is what they looked like back then. A printed photograph laminated right on to the pass!! And, it looks as if they cut them out by hand!! This was issued on 12/10/93!! We got them for Chri More...
20 years ago today, my sweet Prince Charming and I went on our first date! It was at Disneyland, of course!!! We spent the whole day together at the park... At the time there was just one park, and we parked our car where California Adventure now sits! I was wondering earlier, about why we don't have a single picture from that day... At first I was thinking that our phones must not have had c 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.”
