Disney's Peter Pan takes flight for 4th annual Fairy Tales at Ford House

GROSSE POINTE SHORES, MI (WXYZ) -  Follow the second star on the right - and take it straight on to Neverland at Edsel & Eleanor Ford House.

For the fourth year, Ford House will be transformed into a magical place where families can enjoy a summer filled with events, programs and a fantastical exhibit all celebrating storytelling and fairy tales.  The theme for this year's festivities is Your Neverland Adventure, with a tribute to everyone's favorite eternal child: Peter Pan. 


At the centerpiece of the experience is an exhibit featuring the work of one of Walt Disney's most original, beloved and influential designers and art directors, Mary Blair.   Partnering with the Walt Disney Animation Research Library, Ford House will display nearly 40 images created by Blair for the 1953 classic Disney film Peter Pan.  In addition to her work on Peter Pan, Blair created character designs for the animated films Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland, as well as for Disney's iconic "It's a Small World" attraction and the 90-foot mosaic mural inside Disney's Contemporary Resort.

Kids of all ages can become part of the story in the exhibit by climbing inside a life-size lantern - just like Tinkerbell - for an illuminating photo opportunity.  Other activities, including a costume station and reading station, allow families to play and read together.
