T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Spotlight On “Be Our Guest”

As you probably already know, last weekend the new Beauty And The Beast Live Action movie was released in theaters. I was lucky enough to get to go see it, and I loved it – the characters were amazing – especially the beast! The movie will bring about a whole new generation of Beauty And The Beast lovers – and Disney World is more than prepared for that! When they re-designed Fantasyland, they included a restaurant themed after the movie called “Be Our Guest” – and it is basically like walking into the movie! Check it out:

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a French-themed menu, featuring items like Croque Monsieur (grilled ham and cheese sandwich), Tuna Nicoise Salad, and of course – “The Grey Stuff” is offered on the dessert menu (try your hand at making your own Grey Stuff At Home!)

While it is labeled as a “Quick Service” Restaurant, I would recommend making a reservation if you’re planning to head here – as the lines can be insane, and it will only get busier with the release of the new movie! I can’t wait to try it out next time I’m in WDW!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Beauty And The Beast’s Live Action Remake Hits Theaters TODAY!

BB5

When Disney released the animated classic Beauty And The Beast back in 1991 (almost 26 years ago now!), they probably had no idea just how much of a true “classic” it would become. It made millions at the box office, and even won two Oscars (and was the first ever animated film to be nominated for Best Picture, too!)

I remember watching the VHS of this over and over and over (and listening to the soundtrack cassette tape over and over too!) – so the fact that Disney’s live action remake is releasing into theaters today has me more than just a little excited! Check out what’s in store for you when you head to the theater to see it:

What about you – are you headed to the theater this weekend to see it?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Disney Dooney & Bourke!

As a woman, I love me a good designer handbag. And even if you aren’t a purse fan, surely you can appreciate the time and talent that goes into creating an exquisite bag. Disney has had a partnership with the high-end Dooney & Bourke brand for years, and they have recently branched out with three BRAND NEW collections, check it out:
DBNew1
Beauty and the Beast was one of the first movies I remember going to see in the theater – and it is still just as magical today as the day it was released (almost 25 years ago!)
DBNew2
The “Tea Time” collection is my personal favorite – as I am a huge Alice In Wonderland fan (I even have a tattoo of a quote from the movie!), and I could watch it over and over again without getting bored of it
DBNew3
I love the design of the Dumbo series – almost like a chalkboard-ish type drawing, and the red accents are the perfect touch
These collections will be available via the “Shop Disney Parks” Mobile App – which I HIGHLY recommend you download if you’re a Disney fan like me – it gives you the opportunity to have merchandise that is normally only available in the Disney Parks shipped directly to your front door! Perfect for the Disney lover who isn’t able to spend as much time at WDW as they would like (like me, and every other Disney fanatic out there who wishes they could just live in Cinderella’s Castle!)
TGIF, and happy shopping!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Those Movies Are HOW Old?

I was reading recently on the Disney Parks Blog that the Lion King turned 21, and that Pocahontas turned 20 – hard to believe, as I remember when both of these first came out, and I remember going to see The Lion King in theaters!

Got me to thinking – how old are some of the other Animated Disney Classics?

SnowWhite

Snow White is the oldest – originally released in theaters in 1937

Cinderella

My absolute favorite Disney movie – Cinderella – first graced the big screen in 1950. Hard to believe that it was that long ago, isn’t it?

AliceInWonderland

Followed the next year by Alice In Wonderland in 1951

TheLittleMermaid

Jump ahead a little to this classic – released in 1989 – 26 years ago

Disney's Beauty and the Beast (1991)

This “Tale as old as time” came out in 1991

TheLionKing

In 1994 I was 10 – and vividly remember seeing this at the movies

Wreck-It-Ralph

2012 brought us the release of Wreck-It Ralph – which didn’t get much publicity as it should have in my opinion – I loved this movie!

INside Out

Disney’s newest movie was released just last week to rave reviews – will YOU be heading to see Inside Out?

These Disney Classics have stood the test of time, and I can’t wait to see what else they come up with!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Beast Invites You To “Try The Grey Stuff, It’s Delicious!”

Disney has put a lot of time and effort into the New Fantasyland refurbishment that has recently opened – and I must say, it was worth it! They did an amazing job creating new attractions and restaurants that come together in a way that really enriches the Guest experience

NewFantasyland

One of the most highly anticipated parts of this expansion has been the new Be Our Guest Restaurant – partly because it is the first ever restaurant in the Magic Kingdom to serve alcohol, but also because it is bringing us new cuisine in an amazing new setting – the Beast’s Castle!

beasts-castle

Dine in one of three rooms within the Castle, all of which feature beautiful details and artwork – and check out the Enchanted Rose in the spooky West Wing!

WestWing

Lunch is served as a counter service meal, meaning you wait in line and order your food from choices like a croque-monsieur sandiwch or salads and quiche

LunchMenu

Dinner is a sit down meal, featuring roasted meats and fish, as well as a healthy kids menu

DinnerMenu

As for the Grey Stuff – it’s actually a delicious cookies and cream flavored mousse, and what a cute and delicious way to end your meal here!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Attractions Means More Shopping at WDW!

I have mentioned some updates and details on the Fantasyland Expansion, and of course any time Disney opens a new ride or Park, they have to have tons of awesome merchandise to go along with it!

One of the movies being showcased in the new Fantasyland is The Little Mermaid (a personal favorite and a classic from my own childhood!), and so I can’t wait to purchase some of these goodies, including an actual dinglehopper!

Beauty And The Beast is now a huge focus of Fantasyland too, and these souvenir cups are great ways to bring a piece of the magic home with you (and to of course enjoy a delicious beverage in as well!)

 

I personally can’t wait to visit the new Fantasyland next September and see all the amazing changes that are being made! What about you – are you looking forward to checking it out?
