2. B is for Belle
Belle’s name means beauty but she’d rather read than care about her looks any day. She’s independent and gets props for loving the Beast despite his looks. It goes without saying that I would kill for the library the Beast gives her, it’s incredible.
4. D is for Diamond Edition
Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and The Little Mermaid have all been released to Diamond Edition (which is a special Blu-ray/DVD combo pack). While it’s very exciting when we can go out and repurchase our favorite princess films, the panic that sets in when Disney threatens to return them to the vault is unexplainable.
5. E is for Enchanted
We can’t forget about Amy Adam’s Disney Princess moment! Enchanted is wonderful because it throws an animated princess into the harsh NYC reality. It was nice to see a Princess Gisele deal with what we deal with every day, aside from the ability to get rats and roaches to clean an apartment (but we’re not too jealous of that).
9. I is for Interactive
Interacting with the Disney Princesses at one of the parks is something you’ll never forget. It truly is like meeting a character out of your favorite movie! Belle told me we looked like sisters when I last met her, I can die happy.
14. N is for Never Give Up
The Disney Princesses have always demonstrated to never give up, whether it is on their dreams or love or the pursuit of freedom, they have stayed persistent. Disney Parks also hosts a Princess Run, a half marathon throughout the park, that let’s everyone be a princess for the day. Never give up is a strong theme accompanied by the princesses.
15. O is for On Ice
Let’s be real, who wouldn’t want to go to Disney on Ice? Last year’s show featured all of our favorite princesses and their heroes! Someone please get me some tickets to this magical event.
17. Q is for Queen
Without Queens there wouldn’t be Princesses! While many of the Disney Queens have passed away (or are pure evil) there are actually many kind ones! Check out Queen Elinor or Rapunzel’s mother for instance. Queen Clarion from the Pixie Hollow films is a fabulous Fairy Queen!
18. R is for Rapunzel
Rapunzel is one of my favorite Disney Princesses because she’s not your average girl. She’s a playful talented painter and singer. She admires the “floating lights” and doesn’t give up on her dream to find them, even if that means leaving her comfort zone.
19. S is for Snow White
Who’s the fairest of them all? The very first Disney Princess of course! This poison apple eating, dwarf loving lady has been portrayed by Ginnifer Goodwin on ABC’s Once Upon A Time and by Kristin Stewart in Snow White and The Huntsman. She’s pretty popular I’d say.
20. T is for Tiana
Princess Tiana is arguably the best role model for girls today. She’s the first African American Princess (go girl!) and she knows what it means to work hard. She’s very relatable; her movie’s message is that you need both love and a career to be happy/
21. U is for Unfortunate Events
It’s no secret that our Disney Princesses have all experienced some form of unfortunate event. However, following this our Princesses have risen above and beyond to learn an important life lesson. These unfortunate events are important!
23. W is for Wedding
The grand finale of most Disney Princess films is usually a spectacular wedding. There’s a reason couples get married at Disney people!
