The Most Breathtaking Places in Disney’s Upcoming Films We Wish We Could Go To
These real-life places are the stuff of dreams
Watching a Disney film means two things: finally enjoying that long-awaited movie after obsessing over the trailer you watched on Facebook and then imagining you were actually part of the story.
Walt Disney himself said, “If you can dream it, you can do it,” and we definitely agree. We’ve put together a short list of places you could travel to based on the Disney movies that have yet to be released before the year ends. Why? So you can book your plane ticket after you watch these films!

It’s time to pack away those winter coats and move out of those Frozen igloos because our Disney princess Moana (out this November 2016!) will be setting sail to the sunny South Pacific! With its vibrant coral reefs, beautiful botanical gardens and lush mangrove forests, we are absolutely loving Fiji!
Fiji is home to mysterious chameleons, bat-faced monkeys, slippery sea snakes, lantern-bright jellyfish and bursting schools of confetti-colored tropical fish. We wish we were navigating the archipelago with our sun-kissed princess as she and the fearsome demigod Maui search the sea for a mystical island. And with Fiji having over three hundred islands, we can’t help but wonder if this well-kept secret does exist and is hidden somewhere in the region. Hopefully it comes with some unforgettable Lin-Manuel Miranda music.

After his hands were severely damaged in a car accident, Dr. Strange (November 2016) seeks to be healed by the Ancient One. And as Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) journeys to Tibet, we want to do the same! After all, there are so many things to do, like admire the majestic Potala Palace, visit the golden-roofed monasteries and take a relaxing boat ride on the picturesque Baksum Tso Lake *sigh*
It might not sound too thrilling for those who want to get their hearts racing, but keep in mind that the Tibetan people belong to one of the oldest civilizations on earth. Perhaps they’ve shared to one another all the secrets of the world—secrets that have to do with Dr. Strange’s power to manipulate the forces in the mirrors. Maybe a trip to Tibet will take us one step closer to unlocking the mysteries of our world. And even if it doesn’t, a hike up Mountain Everest will certainly make up for it.
Just because Star Wars: Rogue One (December 2016) happens in another galaxy doesn’t mean you can’t experience it here on planet earth. The sequel to the blockbuster The Force Awakens (2015) was shot in different locations, one of them being the all-time favorite city of tea and biscuits, double decker buses and crimson phone booths!
We know what you’re thinking. How could the Rebel Alliance and the entire Galactic Empire—along with a hundred Stormtroopers, a thousand droids and a zillion space ships—possibly fit into the sexy cosmopolitan? Director Gareth Edwards explained that the Canary Wharf tube station of London Underground was used for the action-packed chase scene. How cool is that? We’re hoping that we’ll catch a glimpse of Felicity Jones and Diego Luna (complete in battle gear) atop the London Eye, too.
