Brochures for 2011 Disney Dining Plan at Walt Disney World Now Available; Signature Dining at Le Cellier Confirmed

Thanks to a tip from The Disney Food Blog, we have learned that the preliminary brochures for the 2011 Disney Dining Plan have become available on the official Walt Disney World site. The Disney Food Blog covers the plan in more detail, but the brochures do confirm that as of March 1, 2011, Le Cellier will become signature dining (requiring two table service credits per person) for dinner only. Joining the Hollywood Brown Derby as the only signature dining experiences in the parks themselves, this is the first return of 2-credit dining to Epcot in years, since Coral Reef was dropped down to one credit (along with a menu change reflecting the lower cost).

First Look: Helen Mirren, Russell Brand and Alfred Molina in Taymor’s ‘The Tempest’; New Stills from ‘Secretariat,’ ‘The Debt’

Walt Disney Studios and Miramax Films have just sent us some amazing new stills from some of their upcoming holiday releases which we have added to our existing galleries.

First up is The Tempest from famed director and Broadway wizard Julie Taymor. In her big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s mystical thriller The Tempest, Academy Award®–nominated Julie Taymor (“Across the Universe,” “Frida,” “Titus”) brings an original dynamic to the story by changing the gender of the sorcerer Prospero into the sorceress Prospera, portrayed by Oscar® winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen”). Prospera’s journey spirals through vengeance to forgiveness as she reigns over a magical island, cares for her young daughter, Miranda, and unleashes her powers against shipwrecked enemies in this exciting, masterly mix of romance, tragicomedy and the supernatural. The Tempest opens in limited release on December 10 and wide release one week later on December 17.
