6 Things Nobody Tells You About Working At Disney World

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 some dude barf on the teacup ride as it is to create precious childhood memories. Find out what you never knew about what goes on inside on Cracked…

This Guy Can Sing “Let It Go” In The Voice of 21 Different Disney Characters

The best "Let It Go" cover yet?

When 22-year-old Brian Hull heard about a gift card contest that asked competitors to contribute their own cover of the song  ”Let It Go” from “Frozen,” he got to work on recording one — in the voices of 21 different Disney and Pixar characters. The vocal performance major at Dallas Baptist University brings the voices of Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, Sebastian The Crab, Tigger, Goofy and many others with impersonations you have to hear to believe. It’s almost scary how many voices he can do in rapid succesion!  If this kid does not have a voiceover contact already, Disney doesn’t know what it’s doing.  [USA Today]

Parents Lip Sync “Frozen” Song Perfectly; Daughter Remains Unimpressed

Parents Lip Sync Song From Frozen; Daughter Is Unimpressed
Booooorrrrrrring!

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 know.) These parents used all those repeated listens of the song “Love Is An Open Door” to memorize every syllable of it, and filmed a video of themselves absolutely nailing a dramatic lip sync while driving around with their kids. The best part, though, is their daughter in the backseat, who is thoroughly unimpressed by her parents’ antics. She literally yawns throughout the entire performance, which, as you’ll realize when you hit play, is quite a feat. [YouTube]

 

Watch This: Disney Princesses Realize They Don’t Need A Man To Achieve Their Dreams

Disney Princesses Realize They Don't Need A Man
Why Does Every Princess Need To Have A Prince?

I think every feminist who grew up loving “The Little Mermaid” has that moment when it hits you: Ariel literally gave up her voice for a man. Then you start thinking about the gender dynamics in all your other favorite childhood movies, and pretty soon your Disney obsession has crashed down around you, a pile of misogynist, racist rubble where Cinderella’s gleaming castle used to be. This video asks a simple question: what if Disney princesses realized everything they gave up to snag their princes, and decided to be their own heroes instead? [YouTube]

Teen Petitions For The First Plus-Size Disney Princess

disney fairy godmother

Disney princesses are a very specific breed of (cartoon) women, something akin to a casting session for “The Bachelor.”  Tall, skinny, long-hair, conventionally beautiful. In other woods, despite the company’s attempt to diversify their movies in recent years, Disney princesses are not even remotely reflective of women in the real world.

High school junior Jewel Moore of Farmville, Virginia, is trying to change that. She is asking Disney, through a Change.org petition, to create the first-ever plus-size Disney princess.  Keep reading »

Disney Characters In Real Life
