Walt Disney World, on its Facebook page, shared this adorable video of Mickey Mouse going to celebrate with his friends in front of Cinderella Castle. Super cute!



The Disney Parks Blog also has a fantastic blog post today listing several Mickey Mouse facts you probably didn’t know!

Wish upon a star for your birthday, Mickey!

I’ll say it again: happy birthday to Mickey Mouse and his main squeeze, Minnie!

‘Into the Woods’ Trailer Features Singing and Johnny Depp’s Face

When Disney released the teaser trailer for Into the Woods, fans were disappointed the teaser didn’t highlight the musical aspect of the movie, specifically: the characters singing.

Now, Disney has released the first official trailer for the movie. This trailer is just as spell-binding as the teaser – but even more so because this time, the key characters are singing.

And it’s simply beautiful.



I’m so excited to finally see Johnny Depp’s costume and make-up, and Streep’s final notes are…chilling. Still also in love with Streep’s make-up.

But to be honest, I’m in love with this whole movie, from the music to the gorgeous set.

There is a lot of star power behind this film. Couple that with Sondheim’s music, and you’ve got one heck of a movie. Disney isn’t risking anything by having Into the Woods open Christmas Day.

Just like with Les Miserables in 2012, the movie theaters will be packed.

Are you excited for Into the Woods? Which character is your favorite?

ttfn!

Fall Out Boy Releases New Single 'Immortals' for 'Big Hero 6'

Big Hero 6 opens on Friday, and Disney has been doing plenty of promotion for the movie. For the past few months, they have been doing a countdown to the premiere.




Disney also posted the music video for Fall Out Boy’s song “Immortals,” which will be featured in Big Hero 6.

Michelle (my roommate) and I watched the music video together and caught our reactions on film. Unfortunately, we thought the actual music video so…dull that we kind of began discussing other things.

But I think you’ll find our video humorous, nonetheless.



I am seeing Big Hero 6 on Sunday. I will definitely be writing a review for a blog post, with the possibility of filming a vlog review as well. Either way, tune in again very, very soon to hear/read my thoughts on Disney’s next feature film!

Are you going? Let me know in the comments below!

1000 Facebook Likes/Twitter Followers!

So something pretty darn fantastic happened to me yesterday evening.

I reached 1,000 likes on Facebook!

And probably a month or two ago, I reached 1,000 followers on Twitter!

In honor of both incredible milestones, I made a “live” video from last night while I waited for my Facebook likes to reach 1,000. It wasn’t posted live, but my reactions were all live reactions. Plus, I posted it basically right away, so it felt live, if you get my drift.

In short, watch it below:



Thank you to all of my 1,000 Facebook likes and 1,000 Twitter followers (both of which continue to climb daily), and I can’t wait for the next 1,000 to join us!

Special thanks to Dani MacInnes for being my 1000th like and Princess Laura (@DisneyRosary) for being my 1000th follower!

Reaction: jumping for joy!

BREAKING: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Fire!

Just today, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train caught on fire at Walt Disney World. Guests saw trees in the attraction on flame.



According to the local Fox channel in Florida, the fire was first reported at 10:20 p.m., and that witnesses reported it being out by 10:45.



A video posted by Lane the Wee One (@ferdalump) on


No exact causes have been given, but rumors say that fireworks are to blame.





Reedy Creek Fire Department responded to the fire, with fire trucks arriving at Magic Kingdom,



No injuries have been reported. All guests on board the Mine Train were evacuated when the fire started, and now the ride is closed.

See you all real soon.

***UPDATE***

There has been no structure collapse, and guests are now being allowed back into the queue.



And of course, there's a simple lesson to be learned from all of this:



***UPDATE***

Inside the Magic reports that firework fallout caused the fire.

Disney Villains are 'Counting Scars' for Halloween!

This being Halloween season, I figured it more than appropriate to share this recent Oh My Disney video, in which the Disney Villains sing a parody cover of OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars.”

In this version, some of your favorite villains lament how they just aren't as evil as Scar…therefore, they’ll be losing sleep as they continue to be “Counting Scars.”



I have no idea who performs in this, but their singing is fantastic!

And their costumes and make-up are absolutely spot on. Hades’ look is definitely my favorite, followed by a tie between Scar’s and Ursula’s looks.

Honestly, the shot of Hades and his hairspray is my absolute favorite...

I’m absolutely okay with Scar replacing Maleficent as the top villain, as he’s my second favorite (after her). Also, I love how the actor channeled his inner “Madness of King Scar”…brilliant.

Hope this helped you get into the Disney Halloween spirit!

ttfn!

(PS: Hi y’all! Don’t expect any more posts for awhile, as I’m super busy lately—it’s quite possibly I’ll be graduating in May! I hope to post something for Halloween, as it’s one of my favorite holidays and since I adore the Disney Villains.)

***UPDATE***

Since in this post, I spoke so much of the make-up...here's a behind the scenes time-lapse video showing the make-up process for Cruella De Vil.

Overall, the costume, make-up and hair designs in "Counting Scars" are fantasmic!

‘Pirates’ 5 to Film in Australia Starting Next Year

We recently had a “Pirates Weekend” in my dorm, during which we watched all four of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies (so yes – I finally watched the last three!).

Afterward, I got a little depressed when I remembered I would have to wait three more years for the next film, which comes out in 2017. Yes, I know I hate sequels, but I also love Captain Jack Sparrow.

Perhaps a little (too) obsessively.

Today, I discovered just where Pirates 5 will begin principal photography….the exotic island of Australia! Specifically: Queensland.

According to a press release from Walt Disney Studios, "the Australian government secured the film's location with a $21.6 million contribution, but estimates that the film will bring in $100 million in local revenue to Queensland while creating thousands of jobs" (Entertainment Weekly).

Jerry Bruckheimer returns to produce the film, which will be directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg.

Filming is scheduled to start early next year which means: where can I get a ticket to Australia?
