Actress Ginnifer Goodwin Visits the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

How’s this for an unusual crossover? Actress Ginnifer Goodwin, currently starring in ABC’s hit TV series “Once Upon A TIme,” was recently in Orlando. While she was here, she took time out to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando.

On her show, Goodwin plays dual roles, one of which is Snow White.. Shhh! Nobody tell the Evil Queen where she is.

Lady Gaga vs the Evil Queen at Magic Kingdom

Following her amazing show in Orlando on Friday, Lady Gaga hit the theme parks yesterday (April 16).

While out and about, she ran into the Evil Queen from Snow White at the Magic Kingdom. Comparing snacks? Exchanging fashion tips? Who knows what these two divas talked about, but it doesn’t appear Gaga felt the need to watch her back.

New Round of Disney-Inspired Photos by Annie Leibovitz are Released

Ok, so these don’t specifically have to do with Orlando, but since they are part of a marketing plan to bring people to the Disney parks, I’m posting these new photos taken by acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz. They also star some famous faces in iconic Disney roles.

Enacting a scene from Snow White, Emmy award-winning actor Alec Baldwin and actress Olivia Wilde portray the evil queen and her mirror. The tagline reads, “Where magic speaks, even when you’re not the fairest of them all.”

Appearing as Beast is Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges, opposite another Oscar-winner, Penelope Cruz as Belle. The celebratory moment’s tagline reads, “Where a moment of beauty lasts forever.”

Finally, award-winning musician and actress Queen Latifah enacts her dark side as the Little Mermaid’s nemesis, the Sea Witch Ursula. Her tagline reads, “Where memories take hold and never let go.”

The portraits will appear as a special insert in the April issues of O — The Oprah Magazine, People en Español, Real Simple, Essence, and InStyle as well as the March 28 issue ofPeople.

I love this series of photos. What do you think of them?
