This month in Disney history, “Beauty and the Beast” debuted in theaters, introducing us to a young, book-loving heroine named Belle.

In the film, Belle bravely sets off in the forest to find her father and agrees to take his place in captivity at Beast’s castle. Once there, her kindness wins over the castle’s enchanted inhabitants and eventually softens the heart of the Beast. In the end, Belle not only falls in love with Beast, but helps save him from the jealous wrath of Gaston.

Thanks to Kent Phillips for the great images.

Last week I was able to photograph the new nighttime lighting display in Tomorrowland that takes our guests to a galaxy far, far away during Season of the Force at Disneyland park in California. After you have taken in all the new Star Wars experiences, make sure you return after dark to see – or photograph – this impressive lighting extravaganza.

Good Morning from Rome with Adventures by Disney

posted on November 16th, 2015 by Amanda Adler, Public Relations Manager


Rome is far and away one of my favorite cities. It’s steeped in culture and history, and also filled with the vibrant bustling of progress. Scooters wiz by the Colosseum, and ancient ruins stand amongst thriving modern office buildings. It’s a place truly unlike any other.

This expansive morning shot of the city, highlighting the ancient Roman Forum in the foreground, was taken on the Adventures by Disney Italy vacation, and I think it truly captures the beauty of city at sunrise: Just before the commuters, cars and cacophony of sights and sounds descend upon the city.

Disney Parks After Dark: The Halloween Tree at Disneyland Park

posted on October 15th, 2015 by Paul Hiffmeyer, Chief Photographer for Public Relations, Disneyland Resort


If you are on your way to over to Haunted Mansion Holiday during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, take a few minutes to check out the Halloween Tree in Frontierland near the Golden Horseshoe Saloon. The tree was inspired by Ray Bradbury’s novel, “The Halloween Tree.” Click here to read Erin’s post for more detail about the story of the tree and its hand-painted jack-o-lanterns.

Disney Parks After Dark: Phantom Manor at Disneyland Park – Paris

posted on October 8th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager


This month in our “Disney Parks After Dark” series, we’ll be switching gears and showing you some of the spookiest places at Disney Parks – at night, of course!

Tonight’s photo was shot by Tom Bricker and was snapped at Disneyland Park (Paris).

This attraction debuted April 12, 1992, in Frontierland to feature a slightly different backstory than The Haunted Mansion here at Magic Kingdom Park. The attraction in France specifically focuses on the Ravenswood family, Western settlers who struck it rich during the gold rush and were later affected by a series of mysterious demises.
