New Disney Movies for 2016 and Beyond!

maxresdefault

Disney has always a great movie line-up on the horizon and 2016 and 2017 are already shaping up to be perhaps the best two year’s ever. Some people are going to disagree because Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released in 2015 but let’s put that aside, for now, and look to the future (as only Star Wars would want you too!) In addition, there is more Star Wars to come so that helps all your Star Wars fans to look forward in anticipation.

happy they have finally made it happen. I am ready to laugh and be happy with Nemo and Dory again. Want to check out the trailer? Click Here.

2. Beauty and the Beast – This is a live action fantasy, musical film that stars Emma Watson (who does not love Hermione) as Belle and Ewan McGregor as Lumiere. This is done in a similar manner as Cinderella which was released in 2015.

3. Moana – Another princess movie! There can never be enough Disney princesses and Moana is joining the ranks. Want to see the voice of Moana being told she got the part? Cute youtube video Click here!

4. The Jungle Book – Another live action coming out in Spring of 2016 and has quite _1439777280the cast list including Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Bill Murray, Christopher Walken and Ben Kingsley to name a few. Neel Sethi who plays Mowgli and is a cutey! Want to see more info and a teaser then Click Here.

5. Alice: Through the Looking Glass – The sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in
Wonderland is coming soon. My favorite Mad Hatter is back and Johnny Depp I know will do the part justice. This is another live action movie and if anything the cinematography will be amazing.

 

So this is my Top 5 list and I would love to hear your thoughts and what you are looking forward to seeing?

 

1900 Park Fare Character Breakfast Review

IMG_0872

This was one of the few character meals on Disney property that I’ve not yet had the chance to do, so I was very excited to snag a last minute reservation for breakfast the night before.  I enjoyed this meal with just my 2-year-old daughter in tow, and we both absolutely loved this experience.  The food was very good, and the character experience was invaluable.  Characters that typically appear include Alice in Wonderland, The Mad Hatter, and Mary Poppins.  We were delighted to find Tigger & Winnie the Pooh in attendance on the morning we dined as well.

Breakfast selections for the older set were extensive and included a made-to-order omelet station, hand-carved meats (hickory smoked ham on this day), croissants, bagels and delicious spreads (salmon & dill, Boursin, and plain cream cheese), highly acclaimed strawberry soup (YUM!), fresh fruit, biscuits with gravy, sausage, and bacon.  Mickey waffles were there for the kiddos as well as after-breakfast treats.

Immediately upon being seated, a waitress came by offering pineapple/orange/guava juice, which I was thrilled to recognize as “POG” juice from ‘Ohana.  If you’ve never had this treat, be sure to put it on your must try list for your next trip!  We were quickly greeted by Tigger and Pooh in quick succession.  Tigger clowned around with my daughter for a few pictures and kissed her little head…very sweet.  Pooh was slightly less interactive, but we still managed a couple of good shots.

IMG_0863After we got our food, Mary Poppins came by and spent a good bit of time gushing over my daughter.  They were both wearing red & white and MP commented on my daughter’s great taste more than once.  Alice was next, followed by the ever funny Mad Hatter.  He took lots of time being silly and taking pictures with us.

All in all, this stands out as a new favorite character dining experience for us.  We will definitely return to 1900 Park Fare on our next trip to Disney!
