Fairy Tale Treasures Opens Its Doors at DisneylandPilar Clark
Why you ask?
Because Fairy Tale Treasures, one of the enchanting locations at Fantasy Faire in Disneyland, opens its doors March 12, and for a little girl who will be heading there for her first time this summer, I’m thinking she may set up camp.
The quaint little store, with its royal, old-world European charm and medieval ambiance is located between the Royal Theatre and the Royal Hall, and will be filled with costumes, accessories and endless storytelling, themed around Disney Princesses of course.
And, according to Disney Parks Blog, there’s a nutty little secret hidden in the shop.
An acorn hidden in the sign that hangs above the doorway is shaped like treasure chest and filled with baubles and beads.
Michel Den Dulk, Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering, masterminded the small detail after being “inspired by several of our classic fairy tale films like Cinderella’ and Sleeping Beauty,’ where woodland creatures, critters and birds interact with humans to help make clothes or help dress someone.
For those critters and creatures, our human valuables, such as gold, diamonds, crowns, etc., probably don’t mean much, but a beautiful shiny acorn on the other hand, does. So we tied in the theme of a squirrel adoring the acorn as a treasure, which is something that was fun to create and also ended up being an underlying motif in the shop.”
