We have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to bring you “first looks” at different areas of Fantasyland. From Gaston in front of Gaston’s Tavern, to the sign in front of Be Our Guest Restaurant, we’ve found new details that we’ve enjoyed sharing with you. Today we’ll be taking a look at Maurice’s Cottage behind the walls of the new Fantasyland! A friend of ours was invited by a Cast Member to preview this location yesterday, including “Enchanted Tales with Belle“. He could either photograph or videotape at any given time, so we have photos of the outside and inside of Maurice’s Cottage, but only video of the experience within. In the future, we’ll have both covered fully! Cast members in their new costumes lined the walkways to Maurice’s Cottage (below, left). The cottage itself has been seen quite a bit online, and has a whimsical look to it (below, right). There is even a wishing well!

We celebrated the 57th birthday of Disneyland on a very rainy day at the park. Our tradition is to ride opening day Disneyland attractions, but some of them are outside, so we couldn’t really be too choosy!

Changes at the Magic Kingdom have been happening swiftly! We stopped by the Main Street Fire Station to pick up our Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom cards to play, and a new banner was out (below, left). We were happy to see the patches are now back inside of the Fire Station, we had been told weeks ago that that would happen (below, right).
