The entire Fantasy Faire area will be open from opening to closing, though.
Went to one of the AP previews of Fantasy Faire today and was fortunate enough to be able to see it just as the sun was setting and all the lights were coming on. I managed to snag a quick video and even caught the effects on Rapunzel's tower!
Gee, I haven't been in this thread for a while. What did I miss ;)
@Wow, thank you for posting! It's beautiful at night and I can't wait to see the glowing effect in person. Again, thank you!
Interesting, one minute Disney is being chastised for doing too much promotion of its "brand", now the problem is they sell stuff without "Disney related identification".
Believe me, if people actually bought watches, fine jewelry, antiques, brasseries, and all these other specialty items at the parks them Disney would sell them. Keep in mind they are not Amazon that can simply display photos of the item online and then drop ship it from the manufacturer. They have to buy, warehouse and display what they sell. No retail business does that for items that are slow sellers. Disney doesn't force anyone to buy anything. They carry, offer and sell what the vast majority of guests want to buy, even if that might be different from what you or I want.
Eisner thinks it's a place to duplicate Universal's "Ride the Movies" model, Iger thinks it's a product display mall for every brand the company can acquire, Disney Parks thinks it's a Disney Store, ODV thinks it's a county fair, TDA thinks its a WalMart with rides, and Imagineering thinks whatever management tells them to think. Like the blind men feeling the elephant, all of them are clueless what the soul of the beast really is.
Mr. Daps posted a video I wanted to share, another cute little entertainment detail. I really love this new area! They really went all out, filled it with stuff to do and see! I hope they add more stories, that would add amazing repeat ability to this area. And both stories are great for all ages!!
These videos are really cute. Thank you for sharing them. :)
Side note: I remember originally hearing that there was going to be a second Dole Whip stand in the PFF. Is that something that fell by the wayside or am I just missing it in the Maurice's Treats photos?
Disney park guests buy crap because that's what the park sells. If they sold unique attraction/park related merchandise, guests would buy that. Bus, as mentioned before, cheap generic glow-spinnie-thingie junk is more profitable for Disney.
Disneyland's merchandise took a nosedive in the 90's when Pressler's strategy reduced the quality of the park's merchandise in a similar manner. Cheap generic junk that had high return's to make Eisner happy.
This may have been brought up before, but does anyone else think the Tangled Tower would have been way cooler as a fountain or sorts?
