The Twisted Truth Behind 5 Of Your Favorite Disney Movies

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 are funny jokes but others are concepts that make you go WTF?!? Here are 5 Disney movies that have some pretty WTF moments… Read more…

Tokyo Disney Hosts Its First Same-Sex Wedding

“My partner Hiroko and I just held a gay wedding at the Tokyo Disney Resort. Even Mickey and Minnie are here to celebrate with us!”

Koyuki Higashi shared the above photo and the happy news of her wedding ceremony at the Tokyo Disney Resort in a tweet that has amassed nearly 7,000 retweets and sparked an article in The New York Times. While Mickey and Minnie blessed the couple, unfortunately the government doesn’t agree: gay marriage is not currently legal in Japan. Still, a huge congrats to Koyuki and Hiroko, and let’s hope it’s not too long before marriage equality is a reality around the world. [Twitter via NYT]

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 with all that diversity, patterns of people began to emerge. There is no better incubator for studying human behavior then shoving thousands of people into one surprisingly tiny space and making them wait for roller coasters, apparently.

And I’m not talking “people from Louisiana all have the same accent” patterns. I mean real, big, regardless-of-the-language barriers I often encountered patterns. Here was what I noticed about humans during my six months as a cast member … Keep reading »

This Disney-Obsessed Bride’s Family And Friends Must Really Like Her

When Jamie Blanke married her new husband Eric Chandler, they did it in style — Disney style. The bride, who was raised by two Disney fanatics, really wanted to be Princess Ariel (you know, the mermaid from”A Little Mermaid”). But she didn’t stop at dyed red hair, a fish-netting veil and mermaid-style dress (all of which she had, natch). Oh no, Jamie enlisted all of her bridesmaids and groomsmen to dress as Disney characters, too. So now, these poor bridesmaids are stuck with the pinnacle of unwearable bridesmaids dresses — a Disney princess bridesmaid dress. I mean, I guess there’s always Halloween. [The Knot]

I mean, good on Jamie for doing what she wanted for her wedding. Still, I can’t help but feel that this pales a bit in comparison to…  Keep reading »
