In the Book In the Movie
   It took the dwarves over a week from when they left Laketown until they found the secret entrance to the Lonely Mountain. It took the dwarves one day to get from Laketown to the mountain and find the secret entrance.
   Gandalf never goes to Dol Guldur. He infiltrates the Necromancer’s stronghold in Dol Guldur.
   The sealed barrels are collected a little ways downstream by river elves and lashed into rafts, which they then drive to Laketown. Bilbo hides on a corner of the raft. The open barrels are chased down river by orcs.
   The dwarves were taken to Beorn's house by Gandalf and introduced to Beorn one or two at a time. They were chased to Beorn's house by Beorn himself.
   While the dwarves were prisoners of the elves, Bilbo wore the ring the entire time. He frequently sneaked out of the palace. Bilbo stayed in the palace the entire time.
