9. How does he match up each character and photograph (like Ariel and this bedroom scene) so perfectly?

McNally played it coy and told BuzzFeed Life that "the ideas come to me in my sleep."

10. Although he's marvelous at creating these moments melding fantasy and reality, McNally said he has never been a huge Disney fan (sorry, Peter Pan).

"However, I grew up with two sisters, so I was exposed to a lot of these films. Sometimes unwillingly. I am seeing a therapist now."
