Huma Abedin & Tony Goldwyn It Ain't the White House But We'll Take Disneyland!

3/20/2017 10:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0320-Huma-Abedin-Tony-Goldwyn-Disneyland-launch-2Huma Abedin's hanging out with the president -- not the one she was hoping to be with, but a day at Disneyland with Tony Goldwyn from "Scandal" is a damn good plan B.

Hillary Clinton's right-hand woman hit Disney with the TV prez, her son and one of his daughters. Tony got closer to Huma and HRC during the campaign.

He spoke at the DNC, and Hill and Huma visited the set of "Scandal" ... so yeah, he's a big supporter. Can't imagine what they talked about all day.

Your candidate just lost the election! What are you gonna do?

WE'RE GOING TO DISNEYLAND!!

'Beauty and the Beast's' Chip LeFou Was Always Gay ... Get Over It!

3/8/2017 7:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The guy who voiced the teacup in the OG "Beauty and the Beast" says a gay character in the new live-action flick is no big deal ... dude was always gay.

We got Bradley Pierce -- who played Chip in Disney's 1991 animated feature -- out at Craig's Tuesday night, and he told us anyone who thought Gaston's sidekick, LeFou, wasn't gay from the get-go is kidding themselves.

He also thinks it's hilarious that the people who are upset about LeFou have no problem with a woman falling in love with a buffalo.

'Beauty and the Beast' Won't Play in AL Theatre Due to Gay Character

3/3/2017 9:19 AM PST

0303-beauty-and-the-beast-drive-in-caneled-tmz-getty-2An Alabama theatre owner is banning "Beauty and the Beast" because he doesn't want to expose his customers to the new gay character in the film.

The owner of Henagar Drive-In Theatre says Disney's decision to add its first homosexual character was the last straw for him ... and says he refuses to "compromise on what the Bible teaches."

He added, "If we can not take our 11 year old grand daughter and 8 year old grandson to see a movie we have no business watching it. If I can't sit through a movie with God or Jesus sitting by me then we have no business showing it."

He says he only wants to show "wholesome movies" without sex, nudity, homosexuality or foul language.

EXCLUSIVE

1123-walt-disney-doc-launch-tmzMouse House fans will be able to get their hands on a rare piece of memorabilia when Walt Disney's last will and testament -- or the first draft, anyway -- auctions off for an estimated $60k!

The will was drafted in August 1941 and includes this interesting breakdown: half of his personal Disney stock was split between his 2 kids, and the other half he dropped in an "employees bonus pool." The doc isn't his final will ... Disney drafted 2 more before he died in 1966.

Profiles in History is unloading several other collector's items for animation fans, and conservative final bid estimates range from $12k up to $80k:

- Original "Peanuts" comic strips signed by Charles Schultz ($12,000)
- Wicked Queen art from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" ($15,000)
- Grinch and Max production cels from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" ($12,000)
- Walt Disney Legal License for Use of Walt Disney Inc. ($80,000)

There's a ton more available, including animation cels, when online and live bidding begins Dec. 9.

1118-ducktales-disneyThe makers of the "DuckTales" reboot are planning to solve mysteries and rewrite history once again ... and make fat stacks of cash while they're at it.

"DuckTales" filed trademark paperwork ... setting Disney up to produce themed kids' juices, soft drinks, toys, games, books and all other playthings. Translation -- expect to see the modern versions of Huey, Dewey and Louie on a crapload of merchandise very soon.

The reboot of the beloved '80s cartoon was announced last year and will debut in 2017.

Disney's 'Doc McStuffins' Never Fear ... Season 5 Is Here

11/16/2016 8:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1116-doc-mcstuffins-disney-01"Doc McStuffins" is here to stay for a few more years ... so all the parents and kids worrying about the show getting cut can take a deep sigh of relief. 

You'll remember back in June, Disney posted its renewal list and the popular show was missing ... so parents took to the web for a good old fashioned freak-out. However, we've learned season 5 has officially gotten the green light from network honchos.

The show features an African-American main character and has become a huge hit.

We're told season 5 won't officially hit the tube until 2018 ... so parents, get ready for some reruns until then. 

Cue that damn theme song ... 

Orlando Brown There's No 'That's So Raven' Spin-Off Without Me

10/30/2016 12:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"That's So Raven" star Orlando Brown says there's no real spin-off without him and the rest of the OG cast because it was the group dynamic that made the show a hit.

Raven-Symone announced Thursday she was leaving "The View" to helm part 2 of her ol' Disney series, but when we spoke to Brown on Friday he told us he still hadn't gotten a call about reprising his role.

Brown played Raven's BFF on the show, so fans think he'd naturally be a given for the spin-off, but there was beef between them earlier this year when Raven accused Brown of stealing her phone. 

Orlando brushed off the conflict and he's waiting for the call ...

Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani First Disneyland Trip Is Family Affair

10/13/2016 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

1012_blake_shelton_gwen_stefani-disneyland_tmz_wm_blurBlake Shelton ain't afraid to shake things up with Gwen Stefani, and he proved it by letting her take his Disneyland virginity.

Blake and Gwen were joined by her parents, 3 sons and a spooky Donald Duck at the Happiest Place on Earth. It's been a while since they were spotted together in public, but they're clearly still going strong. Even more noticeable is the giant "1st Visit!" pin on Blake, who turned 40 in June.

Gwen FaceTimed with him from the theme park last November, but that doesn't count. Our Disneyland sources tell us Blake thought twice before getting on Peter Pan's Flight.

Kiddie roller coasters are just not his thing -- not without whiskey or beer, we're guessing.

Disney World is making the monumental decision to shut its doors as Hurricane Matthew barrels into Florida ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the Orlando park will close down at 5 PM Thursday, but expects to open again Saturday morning. That's the plan ... but you gotta think that all depends on the damage.

Matthew's category 4 winds are expected to start tearing through South and Central Florida Thursday afternoon. Disney World has closed 3 previous times for hurricanes: once in 1999 (Floyd) and twice in 2004 (Frances and Jeanne).

Universal Orlando is also shutting down today, and also expects to find a way to open by Saturday.

Disney World Sued I Got Bit By A Snake In Your Pool Area!!!

9/13/2016 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0912-florida-disney-world-snakes-by-pool-GETTY-TMZ-01Disney has more than alligator problems ... it's being sued by a Pennsylvania man who claims his right hand is now partially paralyzed, the result of a venomous snake bite.

Michael Barth says back in July 2013, he was swimming at one of the Orlando resort pools when the snake appeared. He says there wasn't a Disney employee in sight, so he tried placing a towel over the snake so it wouldn't attack kids and adults who were at the pool.

Michael says the snake bit him on his right thumb, and he ended up in ICU for 5 days, pumped with 16 vials of anti-venom. He says he now suffers numbness and lost use in his right hand.

It's interesting ... after Lane Graves was killed by a gator, the Disney Resort posted warning signs, cautioning guests of alligators ... and snakes.
