Beauty and
The Beast

A Pixar Animation Studios film
from 2006

The 1959 film based on the
story by Charles Perrault

This 1991 Oscar-winning film is
based on the 1740 French fairy tale
of the same name, by GabrielleSuzanne Barbot de Villeneuve

A talking hotshot race car
named Lightning McQueen
finds out - cue the feel good
subtext - that life is about the
journey, not the destination,
all against a road trip across a
refracted version of Route 66.

A beautiful princess named
Aurora was raised by three fairy
godmothers in the mythical
kingdom of Moors. Cursed by an
evil witch, she falls into a deathlike sleep at 16, with only the kiss
of a true love able to awaken her.

Before the days of online dating,
a bratty, self-obsessed prince is
cursed by a sorceress and turned
into a hairy beast, destined to stay
that way until he learns how to give
love and be loved in return. It takes
the spunky Belle to draw the coldhearted Beast out of his isolation.

U-Drop Inn, Shamrock, Texas

Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany

Riquewihr, France

Storied Route 66 morphs into
something perhaps even more
kitschy than the original in the Pixar
film Cars. The movie unspools
mostly in the town of Radiator
Springs, home to Ramone's House
of Body Art, which is patterned after
the U-Drop Inn, an Art Deco gas
station and cafe in the east Texas
Panhandle town of Shamrock. Built
in 1936, the funky neon lit complex
is home to a Cars Corner with
plenty of photo opps for kids of all
ages. It's now the Shamrock Visitor
Information Center.

This 19th-century Bavarian
beauty was designed by the
eccentric King Ludwig II, a royal
dreamer obsessed with medieval
legends and Wagner. The village
is an easy day trip from Munich,
with the castle accessible by
bus, horse drawn carriage or a
bracing walk. The exterior and
setting are the showstopper.
Even if you've never seen
Sleeping Beauty you'll recognize
the castle's silhouette - it's the
inspiration for the iconic Disney
brand at the start of every film.

Belle's home is based on
this gorgeous little medieval
village in the Alsace, with its
cobblestone streets, halftimbered houses, stone arches,
geranium-filled window boxes
and sidewalk cafes. Set in the
heart of Alsatian vineyards, the
burg shines with a once-upon-atimeliness that invites exploring
year round.
