Growing up I watched a lot of movies — Disney movies to be exact. From “Cinderella” to “Alice In Wonderland,” I watched them until my VHS player overheated. The thing about re-watching childhood movies today, though, is that you get a completely different experience. You notice things you didn’t as a preschooler. Some of these things… READ MORE »

Last semester I worked at Walt Disney World and encountered thousands of “guests” (as they are known in Disney-speak) a day. They came to Walt Disney World from all over the actual world, although they tended to be predominantly from the Western Hemisphere North America, Europe, or Brazil, and were all ages, races, and attitudes. Even… READ MORE »

When Jamie Blanke married her new husband Eric Chandler, they did it in style — Disney style.

But she didn’t stop at dyed red hair, a fish-netting veil and mermaid-style dress (all of… READ MORE »

Now that Disney has purchased LucasFilm, Princess Leia has got to get with the program on that whole Disney princess thing. Lucky for Leia, the other Disney princesses are all happy to teach her how to be a pretty, pretty princess and wait quietly by until her prince comes to save her. In song, of… READ MORE »

Merida, Disney Pixar’s first leading lady, was a popular costume for women this Halloween, according to Google. Between Merida, Kate Middleton, and the recent Snow White movies, we’ve had princesses on the brain this year.

“Disney is releasing a Latina princess soon, mija,” I declared to my daughter as we drove away from her school and on our way to pick up her dad. “Good!” she said firmly. But of course, I rarely let that be the end of any conversation. “Why good?” I probed.

What followed was… READ MORE »

I have an unreasonably difficult time separating gorgeous ginger Amy Adams from her Disney princess character in “Enchanted.” This is exactly what I imagine a princess would wear should she leave the castle to attend a small awards ceremony, because duh, princesses always wear floor-length Oscar de la Renta, even to fairly casual events. … READ MORE »

In the latest installment of fashion’s never-ending quest to butcher every chaste relic of childhood, Barneys New York has cast beloved Disney characters as this year’s subjects of their famed holiday campaign. They aren’t quite the precious figures you might recall; in fact, the luxury department store has given these familiar faces a bit of… READ MORE »

Artist Rodolfo Loaiza’s new show, “Disasterland,” features colorful paintings that throw out traditional Disney narratives and re-imagine them in ways that more accurately reflect the world we live in. For example, “heterosexual happy endings have been discarded; outdated,” and some popular heroes, princesses, and villains have been recast as same-sex lovers. Hercules and Aladdin make… READ MORE »

Nobody ever told us who designed Cinderella’s glass slipper, but if a contemporary version of the tale were to take place, Christian Louboutin would be a shoe-in for the job — so it’s only natural that Disney chose the French designer, known for his luxurious red-soled footwear, to create a modern-day take on the fateful… READ MORE »

“Disney Park Confessions” is a Tumblr blog documenting, well, confessions about Disney theme parks. When I first heard about it, I assumed there would be a lot of people admitting to doing naughty stuff in the Epcot bathrooms, but most of the confessions are a lot more innocent–and a lot weirder–than that.
