Welcome to the Fantasy Faire
Less than three weeks ago, we were taking a look at what was coming up with Disneyland's Fantasy Faire addition, and now, the whole thing is finished. Last Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders had the opportunity to preview this stunning extension of Fantasyland before it opened to the general public. So with my camera in tow, I sauntered over to the Happiest Place on Earth on Saturday to see the finishing touches.
Having spent several hours exploring every facet of this new area, I can confidently say that it will be a resounding success for the park. The architecture and theming is immaculate--a mixture of the charming village aesthetic of Fantasyland's dark ride facades and the regal ornamentation of Sleeping Beauty's Castle. Details abound everywhere, and--as we'll explore throughout the week--there are a lot of shows and activities packed into this small plot of land!
Everything about Fantasy Faire is beautiful, and both children and adults will find things to like here. It may not cater to the teenage demographic (at least the part that doesn't care about the Disney Princesses), but it's not designed to. And other than that, there really are things for people of all ages to enjoy. So scroll through the rest of these photos, and stay tuned for more updates the rest of this week!
