A couple of weeks ago I posted how my wife surprised me by buying me a annual pass because I will be working every month in LA. Well, tonight was my first night at the park. A little bittersweet since my wife and kids aren't with me but had a great time. Going back tomorrow night and Thursday ... hope to bump into any MW'ers at the park.
Just wanted to let my mousewait family how awesome my wife is. I live in Washington but will be traveling for the next year to LA each month for work. We've been joking about how hard it is to be so close to Dland and not go. Tonight, this was sitting on my pillow! I am still in shock!
Anyone on Mousewait frustrated with the two "special" lanes for 4 and 5 day pass holders? They move sooooo slowly. For those of you who haven't been here yet but have a 4 or 5 day pass be sure you are in the right line and have your ID ready!
Hell MouseWait family! Our countdown has begun to our November trip and we are so excited. I 've got a question: it seems that RSR ride broke down alot in the beginning but that it seems to be running better recently. Are people not mentioning the breakdowns as much or do they have the kinks worked out?
Well, it's high time I finally join and post something. I thought my wife and I were alone in our addiction to Dland but then I found this place and realized there's a bunch of crazy addicts out there! Thanks everyone for the great posts; looking forward to doing RAKs and I hope to see some of you in Nov.
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.”
