Clopin’s Music Box Adds to Old-World Charm of Fantasy Faire at Disneyland Park

As we’ve learned already from Michel Den Dulk, Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering, the new Fantasy Faire at Disneyland park is designed to reflect the Gothic, Old-World feeling that guests experience in Fantasyland. In addition to the influence seen in the area’s architecture, Imagineers have imbued the entire area with the same Old-World charm through details like Clopin’s Music Box – an interactive element guests will discover at Fantasy Faire.

Clopin’s Music Box Adds to Old-World Charm of Fantasy Faire at Disneyland Park

“It’s really like a very big music box,” says Michel. “When guests peek inside the window, they will see a scene that has our main character, Clopin from Disney’s ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ inside.” By turning a crank on the front of the music box, guests will set the scene in motion to the tune of “Topsy Turvy.”

“The whole scene comes to life,” says Michel. “Clopin starts to dance, and Quasimodo will peak out of the bell tower on Notre Dame Cathedral … the sun will go down, and the moon will go up.”

Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more details on Fantasy Faire – and come see it for yourself when the new area opens at Disneyland park on March 12.


  • We always love seeing the Disney Designs and are wanting to build our own little slice of Disney. Are there any Disney Home plans based on some of the work in the parks like Prince Eric’s Castle?

  • What a nice surprise! “Hunchback” is one of my favorites so I’m so happy to see it find a home in the Parks.

  • Sounds cool. I look forward to visiting Disneyland again soon and seeing al the new stuff. But I wish we’d bring back Disney’s Hunchback of Notre Dame: A Musical Adventure! It was the best show we had. Or better yet, put that on Broadway! We had a stage show in Germany. Let’s bring it back to the states (and in English)!

  • I can’t wait to see it in person. 🙂
