    If you were like most high school seniors, your days leading up to May or June, were filled with thoughts about two monumental events in your life, graduation and prom. For me, as soon as September came along and it was the start of senior year, I was busy every weekend trying to find that perfect dress to wear to prom. If you were like me, then the Blu-ray release of Disney's Prom will surely bring up those memories of that night.

    Welcome to the first installment of “Magic Off the Record”, a web series where I, a current (anonymous) Disneyland Resort Cast Member will share some of the stories and secrets that lie behind those “Cast Member Only” gates.

    It's abundantly clear that 3D technology is the big new thing and Disney has been giving some of its older titles the 3D treatment to engage audiences once again in the storied classics. Beauty and the Beast is perhaps the most recent addition right behind The Lion King which is also building up some promotional steam.


    We had the opportunity last weekend to be invited to the El Capitan to enjoy the Beauty and the Beast in glorious stereoscopic 3D (and even got a look at the Breakfast with Belle).
