    Disney has entered the competitive cosmetics market with a private label line of products available at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Beautifully Disney captures the glamour of some of Disney's most famous princesses and diva villains. With eye-shadow palettes, lip gloss, nail polish and accessories, the Beautifully Disney line has got you and your face covered.

    I found all of the new Beautifully Disney products to be exceptionally high quality. In particular, the eye-shadow palette performed very well, and it's actually at a lower price point than other well-known products from major brands.

    Effective tomorrow, the Disney Parks on both coasts will be adopting a new minimum age restriction for children to enter the parks alone. While the Disneyland Resort never had an official policy, the Walt Disney World Resort had a policy that was loosely followed but often varied from park to park.

    Going forward, Cast Members will not allow entrance to any guests who appear to be under 14 years of age without a guardian age 14 or over. Disney has noted that the official policy has not been introduced as a result of any particular incident.
