Taylor, Taylor, let down your hair!

Donald Duck Makes Waves at Sea

A certain young wizard may soar on a Quidditch stick, but when it comes to sea legs, he's about to face some splashy competition from a high-flying old favorite.

Donald Duck, who turns 77 this year, has impressively gone high tech, starring in a new water ride aboard the upper reaches of the latest addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet, the 128,000-ton, 1,250-cabin Dream. After an invitation-only Port Canaveral, Fla., christening last week with Dreamgirls Oscar winner (and former Disney Cruise Line singer) Jennifer Hudson serving as the ship's official godmother, the luxury Dream leaves on her maiden voyage with the public Wednesday.

Only don't expect to play shuffleboard. Called the AquaDuck (as in aqueduct, get it?), the ship's exhilarating poolside flume ride shoots bathing-suited bravehearts through a 765-ft.-long pneumatic tube propelled by 10,000 gallons of gushing water per minute. Think Splash Mountain, only with faster twists and turns – and with you as the cascading log. Top speed: 20 feet per second.

Which Hollywood A-Listers Could Pull Off Disney Villains?

Which Hollywood A-Listers Could Pull Off Disney Villains?

Glenn Close was sheer evil perfection as the live-action version of Cruella De Vil in the 1996 remake of the Disney classic 101 Dalmatians. And while that creepy character sought to clothe herself in cuddly lap dogs, Sleeping Beauty's Maleficent takes it up a notch, cursing a baby to death by spinning wheel and turning into a dragon! She's so ominous, in fact, she may be the first Disney villain to get her own feature.

The Maleficent movie would, according to The Hollywood Reporter re-tell the 1959 fairy tale from the point of view of the self-proclaimed "Mistress of All Evil." Already rumored to be a front-runner for the delightfully devilish role: Angelina Jolie.

But wouldn't the equally gorgeous Catherine Zeta-Jones be able to bring to life her evil elegance? Her background is in theater and dancing after all. Another casting contender: Kim Cattrall, who has proven time after time she is equally bewitching and b----y!
