This majestic 14th century Scottish castle will be a dream vacation destination for a lucky traveler and 20 of his or her guests.

With excitement building for the live-action adaptation of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast®” featuring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, HomeAway® is teaming up with Disney to celebrate the film by giving one lucky winner and 20 of his or her chosen guests an unprecedented #HomeAwayCastle stay experience in Scotland this summer.

With its contest that launches in several countries today, the world leader in vacation rentals is offering the chance to make someone’s dream of living a real-life fairy tale come true. The prize package includes a five-night stay in a majestic 14th century castle located in Duns, Scotland and all travel arrangements for the winner and up to 20 of his or her favorite people.

The group will have the entire castle and its 1,200 acres to themselves to enjoy as they wish and can partake in a variety of activities ranging from archery to falconry. Or, they may prefer to dance, sing, read books, or perhaps even talk to the furniture and hope it will talk back, just like in the much-anticipated film.

“Our mission at HomeAway is to help families and groups make unforgettable vacation memories and to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Steve Stamstad, HomeAway’s global brand vice president. “Whether staying in one of our hundreds of castles spread across the world, or even in a simple beach bungalow, we provide more than two million unique places to stay and help travelers get HomeAway from it all.”

Travelers from the US as well as France, Germany and the UK can enter the #HomeAwayCastle prize drawing by visiting HomeAway.com/Disney until the competition closes on March 31, 2017.

HomeAway is also giving away a trip for four to the world premiere of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” in Hollywood on March 2, 2017, including roundtrip airfare, spending money and a three-night stay in a luxury HomeAway villa in Los Angeles.

Fine Art Photographer Gray Malin Debuts “The Red Carpet Series” with Minnie Mouse as Muse for #RockTheDots

Fine Art Photographer Gray Malin Debuts “The Red Carpet Series” with Minnie Mouse as Muse for #RockTheDots

Fine Art Photographer Gray Malin Debuts “The Red Carpet Series” with Minnie Mouse as Muse for #RockTheDots

Fine art photographer Gray Malin has released a new series inspired by the ultimate global style icon, Minnie Mouse, set within Hollywood’s iconic landscape – the red carpet. The series is a limited run release along with a piece of video art, a first-ever production for Malin. The release coincides with #RockTheDots an annual celebration of fashion muse Minnie Mouse and her signature polka dot style tied to National Polka Dot Day on January 22nd – and fittingly falls in the midst of Hollywood’s Award Season.

Malin released the new video art and ‘Leading Lady’ image celebrating Minnie Mouse via his Instagram account ahead of an event in Hollywood to unveil the full series: https://www.instagram.com/p/BPXe9xbF7ej/

Since her first on-screen appearance in “Steamboat Willie,” Minnie Mouse has made an undeniable impact on the entertainment and fashion industries. With Minnie serving as the muse, Malin, known for his unique aerial compositions, took inspiration from her Hollywood and fashion history to stage a photograph embracing these core tenets through a classically styled black tie affair atop a spectacular red carpet. Malin utilized white parasols to illustrate Minnie’s trademark polka dotted dress and give a nod to Hollywood glamour.

“Minnie Mouse has helped make polka dots famous all over the world, and I am continually inspired by her impact on fashion and pop culture,” said photographer Gray Malin. “Her red with white polka dot dress and the classic red carpet have always been symbolic of Hollywood to me. I consider Minnie one of Hollywood’s most iconic leading ladies, so the red carpet seemed like a fitting setting for a collection that celebrates her timeless style.”

The video piece showcases the movement that comprises the key stills of the series. Malin used his artistic eye to create a glamorous visual that highlights Minnie’s fun-loving personality and the glitz of Tinseltown from a whole new perspective.

Working with choreographer Mary John Frank, the carpet comes to life in a dance number driven by the opening and closing of the parasols, infusing movement into Minnie’s iconic polka dots. Sixty dancers glide across the red carpet, showcasing the hustle and bustle of awards season to the tune of original music, with the final frame including a star turn by entertainment’s leading lady herself – Minnie Mouse.

“Minnie Mouse has been captivating audiences, and inspiring artists and designers for decades,” said Josh Silverman, Executive Vice President, Global Licensing at Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “Gray Malin’s incredible ‘Red Carpet’ series, with Minnie as muse, is the perfect marriage of fashion, art and entertainment.”

Prints are available for purchase on the Gray Malin website: www.graymalin.com

Disney Ranked Most Intimate Brand among Millennials, According to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2017 Report

Disney ranked the most intimate brand among millennials, according to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2017 Report, which is the largest study of brands based on emotions. Brand intimacy is defined as a new paradigm that leverages and strengthens the emotional bonds between a person and a brand.

“Disney resonates with this age group because they grew up with the brand. It has kept up with their changing interests and now includes popular franchises like Star Wars and Marvel. Disney is also a mainstay for young families,” stated Mario Natarelli, MBLM’s managing partner. “Interestingly, five out of the top 10 brands for millennials are in the media & entertainment industry, which we believe reflects the prevailing mood of escapism and the need for respite.”

Following Disney, Amazon and Netflix ranked as the second and third most intimate brands for millennials. Comparatively, in MBLM’s 2015 report, Amazon placed first, followed by Apple and PlayStation.

The other brands that round out the top 10 are: Apple, Nintendo, Target, Chevrolet, Xbox, Google and YouTube.

The Brand Intimacy 2017 Report analyzes the responses of 6,000 consumers and 54,000 brand evaluations in the U.S., Mexico and UAE. The full report will be released on January 18, 2017.

Iron Man Experience, Disney Parks’ First-Ever Marvel-Themed Ride, Opens at Hong Kong Disneyland Today!

Iron Man Experience, Disney Parks' First-Ever Marvel-Themed Ride, Opens at Hong Kong Disneyland Today!

Iron Man Experience, Disney Parks’ First-Ever Marvel-Themed Ride, Opens at Hong Kong Disneyland Today!

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts and the Hong Kong Government celebrated the grand opening of Iron Man Experience, the first-ever Marvel-themed ride at a Disney park and the first Disney attraction to feature the city of Hong Kong as its story setting.

“We are always pushing the boundaries of creativity and innovation so that our guests can step into the magical worlds of their favorite stories and meet their most beloved characters,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “We’re thrilled to be adding the high-tech, action-packed universe of Marvel to Hong Kong Disneyland, and we’ll continue building on it as we move into the next phase of expansion.”

With the new addition of Iron Man Experience, Hong Kong Disneyland further strengthens its role as one of the premier tourist destinations in Asia and a key driver for Hong Kong’s competitiveness as a must-visit tourism destination in Greater China and Asian markets featuring a popular and iconic character beloved by Marvel fans in the region.

Anchoring a unique storyline, the eminent innovator and pioneer Tony Stark has selected Tomorrowland in Hong Kong Disneyland to host Stark Expo, where he will show off his latest high-tech creations in various exhibition halls – the Hall of Legacy, the Hall of Protection, the Hall of Energy and the Hall of Mobility. Guests will be among the first to explore Tony Stark’s latest innovations up close and fly in a gravity-defying Iron Wing flight vehicle in Iron Man Experience. He has also made Hong Kong the Asia headquarters of Stark Industries hereafter.

The new attraction takes guests on the epic adventure of a lifetime as they join Iron Man in a battle against Hydra across the city of Hong Kong. Guests will make their way to the Hong Kong Stark Tower powered by the arc reactor and whizz alongside Iron Man through streets that resemble those in West Kowloon and downtown, and fly over iconic Hong Kong landmarks like Tsing Ma Bridge, Victoria Harbour and the city’s pristine mountain ranges.

It’s an experience that will continue to broaden the overall appeal of Hong Kong Disneyland to everyone who visits the park.

The opening of Iron Man Experience continues a period of growth at Hong Kong Disneyland with more on the way in the months ahead. A third resort hotel, Disney Explorers Lodge, will open later in the first half of the year.

The resort recently celebrated its 10th Anniversary with brand-new popular experiences. Between 2011 and 2013, it launched three themed areas – Toy Story Land, Grizzly Gulch and Mystic Point, growing the size of the park by almost 25%.

The Walt Disney Company and the Hong Kong Government recently unveiled proposed plans for additional Marvel experiences at the park in the years ahead as part of an expansion that would include an all-new Frozen-themed land and a transformed Castle and Hub area, which, if approved, will take the very best of Disney and telling stories in new ways first in Hong Kong.
