A few months back some friends of mine, thinking I may have the inside track, said, “Hey Lisa – Do you happen to know when Sleeping Beauty is going to be available on Blu-Ray and DVD?” My answer, “Well I don’t know for sure, but I would say about the same time that Maleficent is, after all that makes sense to me.” Guess what I was right! (It happens!) And, Sleeping Beauty is released Oct. 7, 2014! You can get it now an Amazon Prime, but after getting an advance look at the bonus features, I can tell you this is one Diamond Edition you won’t want to miss! Expect to see some amazing bonus features, including one starring Sarah Hyland, from Modern Family.
Disclosure: I was provided with an all expense paid trip to cover select Disney events. All other expenses incurred were my own. All opinions and experiences expressed are my own.
We arrived at the Walt Disney Estate where we were escorted to the screening room of the home! So exciting and who wouldn’t love the great big screen on which to get a sneak peek at the bonus features as well as to talk to David Jessen, Vice President of Content Enhancement for Disney. I admit after the sneak peak of Once Upon a Parade I couldn’t wait for my review copy to arrive so I could see the whole story. The kids LOVED it and watched it twice. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.)
We also had some time to talk to Sarah Hyland (ABC’s Modern Family), and found out some fun facts about this actress, who is a self-proclaimed Disney freak.
“I’m a Disney Freak, and a fan of Walt Disney himself. He made Disneyland and the whole Disney corporation because he wanted adults to remain children. He wanted people to enjoy a place with their children and feel young at heart. Being part of a classic such as Sleeping Beauty is awesome. . . I loved being there (Disneyland) for my 22nd birthday. The last time I was there I was about 8.”
See you don’t have to outgrow your love of Disney!
Sarah was told she could bring her own clothing to the test. Being a fan of the Renaissance Festival she actually brought what she wore to the festival to the test. They loved the outfit so much it’s what you now see her wearing as she plays the “peasant girl” in the bonus scene “Once Upon a Parade.”
Bonus Feature: Once Upon a Parade
A few more Bonus Features

It was an amazing adventure and I’m so grateful to the owners of the home for providing the backdrop for this timely inerview. Sarah was gracious and charming, warm and friendly. You too will love the bonus feature as much as we did. I’m so excited about the release I’m also sharing with you some fun stuff to do with your kids! Free Printables and Activities! It’s time for a fun filled Sleeping Beauty party!
