Watch This Dude Get Schooled In A Push-Up Contest Against Disney’s Gaston

For Disney World actors, there must be no character more fun to play than Gaston, the resident douchebag of "Beauty and the Beast." This guy must have felt especially smug when a Disney guest tried to call his bluff by challenging him to a push-up contest and got far more than he bargained for. A…

Disney Releases Official Trailer For “Cinderella”

I didn't even know this movie was happening until about five minutes ago, but now that I do know, I'm happy about it.

Disney Characters Dressed Up As Pop Stars Makes Me Smile

Most Disney fairytales take place in a land far, far away, where fame doesn't exist, Twitter is just a noise birds make and Lady Gaga is some royal who lives in a high castle beyond the hills. But thanks to DeviantArt artist Isaiah Stevens, now we can imagine what it's like for some of our…

Could Disney’s Next Princess Have Special Needs?

Many little kids, at one point or another, have wanted to be a Disney Princess. We grew up watching Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, Mulan and others teach us that it's okay to be brave, strong-willed, vulnerable and fiercely independent, and as the times have changed, the brand's Princesses have adapted to become more culturally diverse. But…

Happy Halloween, Here’s A Princess Jasmine Cat On A Magic Carpet Roomba!

The title says it all, doesn't it? Max-Arthur, our favorite Roomba-riding cat, is back to celebrate the season by parading around in "Aladdin" garb. I'm going to assume that the YouTube copyright police are the reason "A Whole New World" isn't playing in the background (I mean, why else!?), so go ahead and mute the…

What Disney Movies Taught Me About Being Gay

Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" is almost certainly a lesbian, according to stand-up comic James Adomian, who lovingly refers to the iconic Disney diva in a recent viral bit as a “big dyke with a butch haircut.” Adomian, who is openly gay, doesn’t believe that Ursula deserves the negative treatment she receives in the movie. “Every…

On Abuse & Seeing What We Don’t Want To See

Here are two things I never expected to be told in the same breath: "You’re so skinny! This will look cute on you," and "I’m pretty sure you’re lying about that time your dad molested you." Nine months ago, I confronted my father about sexually abusing me as a child. Since then, my communication with…

Dealbreaker: An Adult Who’s Obsessed With Disney

The day I realized that Kyle and I weren't going to get married was the day he told me how he'd always dreamed of honeymooning at Disneyland Paris. My family was into nature.

6 Things Nobody Tells You About Working At Disney World

Disney World is the happiest place on Earth, at least according to Disney's copyright lawyers. That description may fit pretty well for kids and a few adults, but working here is a different matter altogether. Don't get me wrong; it's still a Magic Kingdom. But Disney's "magic" is a multifaceted thing, just as liable to make…

If your life involves kids in any way, then you've probably had the "Frozen" soundtrack on constant repeat in the car, at home, on the computer, and even in your head. (Is "Let It Go" actually playing out loud right now, or does it just exist on permanent loop in your brain? You may never…
