I feel like if Disney made at least one or two villains “attractive,” it would make a difference. It would teach younger kids that not all pretty people are good in this world. Because of the fact that a lot of Disney villains are “not attractive,” it took me a long time as a child to realize that not everyone’s outer beauty matches what’s inside.
TRIGGER WARNING- ASSAULT: The part of the Aristocats where they drink the sleeping pill laced cream makes me angry. I was roofied while drinking a sweet cream beverage and that part reminds me of that terrible night.
Disney has been an integral part of me all my life. Disney had been there for me when my dad passed away and I couldn’t be more thankful. Its brought my family together when we argue and comforted us when we didn’t know we needed comforting. My sisters and I already have plans to visit the parks together when we have our own families.
Honestly, whenever I have an anxiety attack, listening to Vocaloid covers of Disney songs helps me calm down. Especially Kaito and Meiko’s cover of “Beauty and the Beast”! It’s fun to see two things I love (Vocaloid and Disney) combined
I just went to Disney World for the first time and I felt no sense of magic at all.
Inside Out hit harder home for me than I thought it would. My whole life I’d been subject to moving six times to all different states. I related so well to the feelings Riley had, and Disney explaining them more to me, even though I was an adult when the film came out, helped everything piece together and make more sense. I finally had some form of closure, and affirmation that it was okay to feel.
This is a big one!!
Aladdin or Frozen??

I actually really like dark imagery in cartoons, and one of the movie scenes that inspired that was the scene where Snow White is in the woods and running away from all the freaky things she’s imagining. I’d play out that scene along with the movie as a kid, and when I grew up it helped mold my rather morbid interest in scary animation.
