Ten Second Tip: Passing the Time – Shakespeare

I thought that it could be fun to share some Disney or Orlando-area ways to pass the time while stuck at home. Many of these are geared towards children, but we’re Disney fans, and that makes us all kids at heart!

Now is the hour…not of your discontent, but to brush up on your Shakespeare! You can rent or buy full productions from Shakespeare’s Globe Theater in London here (prices are in pounds, not dollars). If you think that this tip has nothing to do with Disney, think again. The Lion King is based on Hamlet, and there are other nods to Shakespeare’s work in several movies and Disney shows. The Bard himself even makes an appearance in Pocahontas II: Journey to the New World. You can find him during the song What a Day in London.
