Children's Fairyland is a storybook-themed amusement park on the shores of Lake Merritt. Have you ever been inside? Reporter Dalia Cuenca pulls back the curtain.

 

C.J. HIRSCHFIELD: Everyone over a certain age in Oakland on down has a magic key somewhere in their house, and it still works and it will always work. So that hasn't changed.

Children's Fairyland has an online auction taking place right now. ItsAnnual Gala Costume Party happens next week, on June 1.
