Recently I had the opportunity to meet with Disney Store as part of the Disney Consumer Products holiday preview and get a first look at some of the new and exciting items coming this fall exclusively to Disney Store and DisneyStore.com. The two major franchises to expect more of in the holiday season at Disney Store are Disney Princesses and Disney/Pixar’s Cars 2, both of which will be offering some amazing limited edition items that any fan will be sure to appreciate.
Via its official blog, Disney Fairy Tale Weddings has previewed the latest addition to the family of wedding gowns by Alfred Angelo inspired by Disney Princesses, ‘Rapunzel.’
Recently, Alfred Angelo also debuted the Cinderella Platinum Anniversary wedding gown, in honor of Disney Fairy Tale Wedding’s twentieth anniversary.
This past weekend, several celebrity hair-stylists offered complimentary haircuts at the Bungalow Salon in West Hollywood, CA to benefit the Locks of Love charity in celebration of the Disney Blu-ray/DVD release of Tangled.
Locks of Love provides hair pieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long term medical hair loss in an effort to ‘return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss.’
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has graciously provided us with the following slideshow consisting of photos from the event:
Courtesy of our friends at Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, we are pleased to be able to offer one of our lucky readers a Tangled prize pack consisting of their very own copy of Tangled from Walt Disney Animation Studios on Disney Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack (note this is not the 3D edition) plus a do-it-yourself Tangled paper lantern kit and a Tangled tee (adult large) featuring Pascal (images coming soon).
In honor of the upcoming BD/DVD release of Walt Disney Animation Studios Tangled, available to own on March 29, 2011, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has offered up these clever little animated clips titled ‘Flynn’s Tangled Tales’ in which Flynn Rider takes a slightly skewed look at his personal history.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has offered up two sneak peeks at the upcoming BD/DVD release of Walt Disney Animation Studios Tangled, available to own on March 29, 2011.
The first peek includes one of two alternate storybook openings included on the home release, introduced by directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard. This particular opening is the second presented in the bonus features and represents a transitional version of the animated opening, although some of it is presented here in storyboard format.

When all is said and done, Walt Disney Studios racked up a total of thirteen nominations, the bulk of which were divided by Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
