I know Disney had a character on the Spectrum with Isadora
Smackle in Girl Meets World, but that always felt more like an afterthought or
a retcon to me. I feel that Tilly from Big City Greens is autistic because I
can relate to her and the things she says and does. I’ve never seen a Disney
character like me before and it’s warmed my li’l autistic heart.
One RP blog on here interpreted Krei’s assistant as being autistic with selective mutism, and I really like that headcanon. I’m autistic and after years of physical abuse at the hands of my family, I developed selective mutism to cope. The idea that someone like me could go on to live a normal life is really nice, and now I always smile when I see her on screen, even though she’s only in a few scenes.
I love Disney so much and it’s always been a dream of mine to work there as a character performer, but I know it will never happen because I’m autistic and really not good at interacting and conversing with kids. I’m a professional actor, and I’ve played Mary Poppins, Cinderella, and Snow White onstage, where I don’t have to interact with my audience. But knowing I’ll never play those characters in the parks still breaks my heart.
When I was younger, I used to love the princesses on a quite romantic basis, but As autistic and young as I was back then, I didn’t understand the line between friendship and romance. Now that I know that I am Bi I understand my feelings for them a lot better
I’m autistic and I used to love going to Disney World (despite the loud noises and crowds) but lately I’ve been getting less and less able to deal with crowds and bad sensory experiences, due to that and my parents more or less getting divorced there I’m terrified I won’t enjoy going anymore.
“I am autistic and don’t like thunderstorms. Recently during a thunderstorm , I was thinking about Descendants 3 coming out next year. Uma’s song “ What’s my name” was in my head and calmed me down during the storm.”
“I see myself in Star-Lord a lot. I loved 80’s things and I also love music. So I see him as being autistic. I know he probably isn’t it but it comforts me and makes me feel less alone.”
“I have recently started to theorise that Elsa from Frozen is autistic like me. This idea thrills and excites me and I really hope it is true! If Disney would confirm it as true I’d be the happiest autistic girl in the world! Evidence is eg: She’s asexual and how she got sensory overload at her coronation (when she blasted ice everywhere), not to mention her black and white thinking that she must stay away from Anna to protect her. If Elsa was autistic I’d never worry about my autism again!”
