I met my husband because we both work at Disneyland and we are now expecting a baby. My whole life has been hoping for that Disney happy ending and I actually got to have it. Our favorite movie is Peter Pan and we go to meet him and Wendy as often as possible because they made our dreams come true. Disney magic IS real, whatever age you are, wherever you may come from.
“I relate to Jim from Treasure Planet so much because of my dad. I had watched him leave me and my family for a reason I still don’t know, and didn’t take it well. My grades dropped, I cared about almost nothing. But later after high school, I found my father figure. A man who’s now my step dad. It’s nice to have someone to call dad.”
I wish I could enjoy certain Disney media like Tangled or Goof Troop, but my former friend has made that impossible. She emotionally abused me for a long time, and now I can’t watch anything with themes of abuse without thinking of her. I hate that she’s ruined these for me
I can relate to the way Jasmine reacted when she thought she lost her mother’s bracelet. I have a necklace that contains some of my dad’s ashes that I wear every day to make myself feel safe and keep my dad close to me since he passed. I have panicked on more than one occasion when I thought I lost it. When we see her touch her wrist after she lost it, it reminded me of how I’m always touching my necklace.
I’m very happy that Esmeralda is generally considered the most beautiful Disney woman. I grew up with Ariel and Cinderella and was very insecure about my dark skin color. But seeing Esmeralda, seeing that every character in her movie found her to be so gorgeous, made me feel more beautiful myself.
After watching Cinderella, I love taking cloth scraps and making clothes for my small toys the way she made shirts for her mice friends.
Belle has been my favourite princess for as long as I can remember. I come from a small southern town with a poor literacy rate, so just knowing that someone, even an animated character, loved books as much as I do, it comforted me so much and still much. My favourite line in any Disney movie will always be, “I want adventure in the great wide somewhere…”
I’ve always been self-conscious about my body. My mom fat-shamed me a lot when I was a kid. I used to starve myself as well. I finally got the courage to buy an Ariel bikini at Hot Topic. I put it on and for the first time in a long time I felt beautiful.
Cinderella has been my favorite princess since I was a child. Im very similar to her. Kind to a fault and a dreamer but a bit of a pushover. Just like Cinderella was treated horribly, I too was treated horribly by my “friends” and was excluded and bullied by them. Even though I look back at what they did to me and sometimes feel bitter about it, Cinderella’s story has instead taught me to not let the cruelty of others turn me into a bitter and spiteful person. I’ve forgiven them
