Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

 

Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, “Beauty and the Beast” is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.

In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland to save her friend the Mad Hatter. Directed by James Bobin, who brings a unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in “Alice in Wonderland,” the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll and produced by Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd and Tim Burton with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer. “Alice Through the Looking Glass” reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.

 

Alice Kingsleigh (Wasikowska) has spent the past three years sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland. Reuniting with her friends the White Rabbit, Absolem, the White Queen and the Cheshire Cat, Alice must save the Hatter and Underland itself, before time runs out. Presented in Digital 3D™, Real D 3D and IMAX® 3D, Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” opened in U.S. theaters on May 27, 2016.

Disney World On A Budget – Guest Post by Krystel Seijo

Three Money Saving Tips that will save you thousands off of your DISNEY VACATION

If you think the Disney Vacation you want is out of reach then think again.  This trip does not have to become a financial nightmare.  Use these tips to save money on your Disney Vacation.

Tip #1 – There is more than the theme parks.

I know most of you are visiting Walt Disney World for the major theme parks.  I don’t blame you…we all do.  Keep in mind that the 4 main Disney World theme parks are the most expensive thing to do at Disney but not the only thing to do.

If you didn’t know already, going to Disney World is tiring.  You almost need a vacation from that vacation.  It doesn’t have to be though and that can be an approach that is better for your pocket, family, and sanity.   Here are some things that are free, easy, and fun.

  1. Disney Springs (Disney’s dining, shopping, and entertainment district) – Take a stroll through Disney Springs and do some window shopping. It is a totally different ambiance during the day and at night.
  2. Resort Hopping – It is “adventure” like to go exploring other resorts. You can couple that with a meal at a resort restaurant.
  3. Disney’s Boardwalk 

Tip #2 – Luxury Accommodation 35% off

Welcome to saving at least 35% off your room rate at Disney World.

Disney Vacation Club (DVC) is Disney’s version of a timeshare. You can find out more about that here.

You can occasionally rent DVC points for a one time use either from an individual owner or a store/brokerage.

I just priced out what it would cost to rent points and stay at the Boardwalk Villas studio for one week.  Here is what it would look like:

This chart is from David’s Vacation Club Rentals which is a BBB Accredited company that helps connect DVC members, who are renting their points, with renters.

Here is what the price for the same room, same dates, looks like from Disney.

Disney is expensive enough on its own. This tip will help you get the most bang for your buck.  If you are interested in renting DVC points I suggest reading this article.

#3 – Getting Around

I do not suggest renting a vehicle while at WDW.  You don’t need it.  While this tip is not going to save you thousands of dollars, it will save you hundreds and even better, a ton of effort.

Take advantage of Disney’s free transportation systems.

Use these options in any combination and stop worrying about rental fees, liability, tolls, gas etc.

  1. Disney’s Magical Express – Airport (MCO) transportation
  2. Uber – a non-metered, inexpensive taxi service
  3. Disney’s Transportation System – Bus, water taxi, and/or monorail transportation throughout WDW

Thanks for tuning into and visiting Disneyways.  What tricks/tips do you use to save money on your Disney vacation?
