Hey, DFB friends! It’s time for another round of what’s new at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Here at DFB, we know that our readers are usually big fans of Disney-themed or historically significant houses.
In the past, we’ve shared looks at storybook cottages, castles fit for a queen, and even a peek inside Disney CEO Bob Chapek’s own mansion. But today, we have some photos of an extra special house to share — a house that Walt Disney himself lived in!
Disney food has been evolving for as long as the Disney parks have been open.
Some classic restaurants have been closed down, other amazing new ones have popped up, and the menus at all of them are changing constantly. Only the most classic Disney World fans will remember the restaurant that housed the dish we’re making next, though!
What’s your favorite restaurant in ALL of Disney World?
Maybe it’s Chef Mickey’s because you remember eating there with your family years ago. Or, a place like Be Our Guest Restaurant could be at the top of your list because of the GORGEOUS theming there. But, did you know that Chef Mickey’s and Be Our Guest have both changed a LOT over the years? Did you also know that Cinderella’s Royal Table used to be named after a character from Sleeping Beauty?!

And, although the steam-blowing, horn-whistling trains are available for everyone to ride, there’s a passenger car that’s a bit of secret. Only a few lucky guests are able to ride the Lilly Belle — and we just happened to be one of them (which means YOU get to take a look inside, too)!
When Walt Disney envisioned Disneyland Park, one small component of that dream was a private escape within the Park where Walt and his beloved wife Lillian could entertain family, friends, dignitaries, and celebrities. The space wasn’t completed before his death, but the design persisted, and 21 Royal was born.
The space has been used for several different purposes — the Dream Suite, an Art Gallery, etc — previously. But since 2015, 21 Royal has been an exclusive space in the heart of New Orleans Square available for private dining events. [Read more…]
