.... Or Are They? I keep hearing this massive distortion that Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora and sometimes others are "unrealistically perfect". Well first of all, they're not actually "perfect" but yes they strive for it and come pretty close. The number one reason? The earlier DPs were made in a time where families were still valued as well as good morals and they were on their best behavior in front of children, hoping that the kids would learn to embrace positive traits and reject negative traits so they would be more positive people. They cared more about well-roundedness, being modest...

I have been wanting to write this article since beginning but it took a lot more time to find that right kind of dresses for each princess. I love weddings, the festivity of it, the promises in it, the preparations for it. I'm kind of disappointed that Disney hasn't made it a ritual kind of a thing in its movies. Though I understand, different plots need different settings, but I'd still love to see more of Disney weddings especially in a romantic plot. I so wish especially Aurora's and Snow's wedding, with them finding their prince in the classic fairytale set-up.
Initially I had wanted to...

So I really, really, really love the Disney Princess dance sequences, particularly with the waltz, as I find it to be so sweepingly romantic! The animation of the dance, the way the dress twirls with the women, the romantic and powerful score in the background, the gorgeous scenery in the background and the usually gorgeous dress worn by the princess... I love everything about these sequences! That's not to mention the show of romantic love developing. I am very much an old soul so I really love the process of "courting" which often included the man taking the woman out to dance or dancing...

In lines with the amazing articles written by link,link & link, I wanted to make my own article about favorite things from DP films. Narrowing it all down was really hard for me so I decided to combine things into groupings so I could give overall things from the DP films. I hope you guys enjoy!

10. Animal Friends/Sidekicks:
I always thought that the DPs having animal friends was the cutest idea. I like the "unrealistic" elements of fairy tales because they're not supposed to be real, that's why they are "fairy tales". I always liked the idea of animal friends helping cook, clean, sew, etc....

To continue the Halloween theme, I thought it would be neat to picture each Disney Princess' favorite Halloween-themed activity. I'd love to hear what you guys think!

Prefer to stay indoors on Halloween:

Snow White: Passing Out Candy- I think Snow White look most forward to passing out candy to all of the spunky visiting children. I think the smile on their faces as she drops the candy in their little bags would make her very happy. I don't think she'd be much interested in any of the more scary elements of this holiday.


Cinderella: Making Costumes- Whether a costume for herself or all of...

Keeping along with my Halloween/Autumn-themed articles, I wanted to make a "DP Favorite Scary Movie" post! I LOVE to binge watch scary movies in the month of October; I suppose it's my way of celebrating the Halloween holiday since I don't do trick-or-treating or anything like that. I have heard plenty of complaints about children being on this site so for that reason I will only be providing films with a rating of "PG" or "PG-13" so that it is all content-friendly. (I even provided the rankings for each film along with the year since there was no "PG-13" rating pre 1984 [coincidentally!].)...

Last time I wrote this list Brave and Frozen hadn't been released so now I'll write this list with them included, hope you'll like it

12. Pocahontas

This scene is amazing to look at, no wonder many people loves this ending, but why is it then last on my list? While it's an amazing scene to look at it isn't a happy ending, normally I don't mind it, but Disney is known for making happy endings so honestly if this movie was made by another company and was live action I probably would love the ending more

11. Mulan

This ending starts off great with Mulan reuniting with her father and Shang...

So here is the Part 2 to my musical countdown: Scores. I love Disney music and I honestly love the scores over the songs. They have all of the "magic Disney" feel that I absolutely adore. Also, I love how the scores can provide a blend of the different songs from it's respective films as well as stir up all of the emotions and/or memories from it's respective scene(s). For those reasons, this list was much harder for me to make than Part 1: Songs, but I managed to finish! As I mentioned before, I cannot get enough from the musical team of Alan Menken and Howard...

As some of you might be able to tell, I have been in a very musical mood lately. Along those themes, I wanted to make 2 music countdowns: 1 for Songs and 1 for Scores. I love Disney's music, especially from the team of Alan Menken & Howard Ashman. I almost never like covers of DP songs by Disney Pop stars so unless otherwise mentioned, all versions here are the original ones from the film. Here are my rankings for favorite songs:

Honorary Mentions:
With A Smile & A Song - Snow White & The 7 Dwarfs (So positive and uplifting plus an excellent message.) "There's no use in grumbling...

I have recently learned that the red hair is a recessive gene and will eventually die out in centuries to come. To think of it, it is very sad as I absolutely love the fiery reds. So this article is inspired from this recent learning and to dedicate to my favourite hairstyle among all princesses.

13. Cinderella:
I hated putting her so down, especially she being my 3rd favourite princess. I hate the length of her hair, its like neither here nor there. I'd say, being a house maid, the pony with simple tie-band suited her purpose. I actually liked her cute little braids in the morning. But when...

Okay so I have read multiple places on here that "Ariel just left her family for some guy she barely knew" and variations thereof. I coincidentally enough just watched this film within the last month and remember it very freshly so I would like to contribute my opinion on this matter. First though, I would like to remind people: These Disney Princess films do not take place in a modern time and setting. Most of them take place over a 100 years ago and are during a time when most people were dead by 40 and half weren't even making it that long. To put it in perspective, the equivalent of a woman...

Props to link for posting the link When I came up with answers for the 2nd question, favorite music or songs, I really liked them so I wanted to share them as an article.

Snow White- All You Need Is Love by The Beatles: Simple tune with a heartfelt message and catchy melody. Reminds me a lot of "A Smile and a Song".
"All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need"

Aurora- Your Song by Elton John: A beautiful classic love song that I think is thematically close to Aurora's heart. (Once Upon A Dream: The gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam.)...

The Disney Princesses wear some of the cutest little outfits, both inside and outside of ceremonies and balls, so I wanted to do a fun and light-hearted ranking of all of their outfits! I already did a sort of "part 1" to this countdown with the non-ceremonial outfits/ball gowns ranked. Here I will be ranking the non-casual categories of outfits. I ranked them based on which I'd like to wear/own most:

Ceremonial (Non-Casual/Non-Ball Gown) Outfits:

10. Tiana's Green Dress:
(Top Right Picture) Probably my least favorite of Tiana's dresses. I don't like whatever's going on with the top half (the...

The Disney Princesses wear some of the cutest little outfits, both inside and outside of ceremonies and balls, so I wanted to do a fun and light-hearted ranking of all of their outfits! (I will be doing a second countdown with the ceremonial outfits and ball gowns ranked.) I ranked them based on which I'd like to wear most:

Peasant/Work Outfits:

7. Snow White's Brown "Servant's" Outfit:
For something that is made to look incredibly unflattering, it's actually not that bad. Aside from being torn and having different-colored patches, it's really just a plain dress.

6. Tiana's Blue Work Uniform:...

So I only wanted to include couples at the end of their original films so that is why there is no Pocahontas & Smith or Rolfe as well as no Anna & Hans.

10. Rapunzel & Eugene: I think this whole thing was such a big mistake. Eugene is a criminal on the run who just so happened to stumble upon Rapunzel's whereabouts who had been isolated. He was so selfish that he didn't even want to take her on this trip and was so cold that he actually took her to a bar full of criminals to scare her. In real life, this would have been immensely endangering for her. Luckily, she is so charming and...
