Can you believe it has been 20 years since Disney’s Pocahontas was released in theaters?  Makes me feel old!

Pocahontas has made the journey down river to the Discovery Island Character Landing at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where she has stepped ashore to meet friends old and new. You can find her there throughout the day, in a setting filled with details inspired by her adventures.

It’s always nice to see Disney celebrating milestones by adding new experiences, especially from classic film titles that are under-represented in the parks.

Are you interested in meeting Pocahontas at Animal Kingdom?  What’s your favorite character meet & greet spot?  Does the fact that Disney’s Pocahontas is celebrating 20 years make you feel old too?…

Going Solo in Disneyland Paris


Have any of you ever done Disney solo? This is a great article!-Mztress

Call me crazy, but I wanted to go to Disneyland Paris.  I’d been living in Paris for almost two months now, soaking up the city, and it seemed silly to deny myself this wish, especially when it was a convenient 45-minute metro ride away.  I had also made some friends so I shopped the invitation around, but unfortunately, no one was available to go.  Without even feeling the slightest twinge of disappointment, I thought, “Cool, I’ll take myself.”

The ease of this snap decision tipped me off that something was different.  Usually there would have been just a smidge of hesitation, but this time it was nowhere to be found.  It felt odd, and as a result, caused me to wonder if I ought to rethink my decision.  It was in that one moment of hesitation that my inner Mean Girl managed to wriggle out of whatever box I’d stuffed…

Charles Darwin Movie in the Works at Disney


I can not wait to hear what you all think about this one!-Mztress

Originally posted on Variety:

Disney has launched development on a Charles Darwin movie with Stephen Gaghan on board to direct from his own screenplay.

The studio acquired an untitled pitch from Gaghan, whose credits include writing the Oscar-winning “Traffic” and directing “Syriana” from his own script. Gaghan is in pre-production to direct Black Bear Pictures’ mining drama “Gold,” starring Matthew McConaughey.

Disney said the Darwin project is in early stages. Darwin, the English naturalist and geologist, established that all species of life have descended from common ancestors in his 1859 book “On the Origin of Species.”

Jeremy Thomas produced a Darwin movie, 2009’s “Creation,” starring real-life spouses Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany. That film, directed by Jon Amiel, focused on Darwin and his family as he struggled to finish “On the Origin of Species.”

The screenplay was written by John Collee based on the biography “Annie’s Box,” written by Randal Keynes, Darwin’s great-great grandson…

These Star Wars and Disney-themed bento boxes will put your lunchbox to shame


Pretty cute, don’t you think?-Mztress

And we thought our M&S salad was fancy.

But, that’s before we saw Mike Kravanis’ adorably intricate bento boxes.

Mike is a master of kyaraben – aka elaborate bento (Japan’s version of lunch boxes), where the food is arranged to look like popular cartoon characters and people from popular culture.

Think Alice in Wonderland’s White Rabbit fashioned out of sticky white rice, radish, and red peppers

We don’t know whether to eat them or hug them.

These edible works of art will put your packed lunch to shame.

Putting the bounce into your afternoon.

Bouncing around a lot lately! I feel like Tigger!

Pixar’s Inside Out Just Had a Record-breaking Weekend


Kind of figured this would be the case- you? Did you see it? Thoughts?-Mztress

Originally posted on TIME:

Inside Out’s opening weekend may not have been able to unseat Jurassic World, but the animated film from Walt Disney Company’s Pixar studio still posted a record box-office debut.

Inside Out brought in $91.1 million in U.S. ticket sales this past weekend, which gives it the highest-grossing opening ever for an original Pixar film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The only Pixar movie to score a bigger box-office opening was 2010’s Toy Story 3, a sequel that pulled in $110.3 million.

Released on Friday, Inside Out is a coming-of-age tale that follows five anthropomorphic emotions — Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Fear, and Anger — inside the mind of a young girl. The movie features the voices of comedians Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, and Bill Hader.

Jurassic World, another successful sequel, refused to be knocked from its perch atop the box-office rankings in its second week in theaters. The dinosaur thriller…

Exciting news!-Mztress

I haven’t had the chance to see Selma, but the few clips I’ve seen did look pretty amazing and did put the film high up on my watch list.  Another reason I’m stoked for this…
