Frozen’s Hype Brings Others Down

The Frozen girls- Anna and Elsa- have moved into the Fairytale Hall of New Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom.  This means (hopefully) the end of the Daddy Dash/Frosen 5k, when guests would run to the Frozen Meet’n’Greet immediately after the drop.

However, the wait times have only slightly improved.  When the girls were back in EPCOT, it was a consistent 4 hour wait.  Check out this graph that gives estimated times based on previous days.  It seems that from opening to close, guests will have to wait roughly 3 hours to see the icy ladies, whereas the wait times for Cinderella and Rqapunzel never exceed 45 minutes.  Yet there is still hope for those who play it smart!

The benefit of the royal ladies being moved into Fairytale Hall is that you are now able to book a fastpass for the attraction through both the WDW website and the My Disney Experience app.  Thank goodness for fastpasses, this will automatically push you to the front of the line.  The best part?  Fastpass+ is available to any guest with a valid park ticket.

Of course, there is still Aurora there meeting! Don’t forget about her.  This picture looks so sad to me 😦

Well, hopefully the hype will die down soon.  But between the merchandising fiasco, Disney’s plans for Frozen on Broadway, and possibly a sequel, I doubt it will.

Disney Princess Redesigns

Suuuuuuuuuuch old news.  Oh well, get over it.  It’s still important.  These are the images that little girls (and boys!) will see and as we all know, media representation is very important.  In order of best to worst, I present the new princesses.

1. Tiana (The Princess and the Frog)

Just an addition of glitter.

2. Rapunzel (Tangled)

Luckily the newer princesses seemed to suffer the least.  She still looks dead inside to me.

3. Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)

Like her new hair, but the dress looks so much cheaper.  Why did they take out the seams on the bodice? Her face is all wrong too.

4. Belle (Beauty and the Beast)

I like the color change quite a lot.  The hair looks like a hot mess.

5. Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

This caused quite the uproar because her new dress is nowhere to be found in the movie.  To be fair, the dress is quite ugly and she seems to suffer from an excess of accessories.  I do like her neutral makeup tones and hair change.  To me, she looks more like the movie ariel in the redesign.

6. Snow White (Snow White and the Seven Dwarves)

Meh.  This modernized version takes out many details that I think are Snow’s defining characteristics.

7. Jasmine (Aladdin)

I hate this one.  They changed so much about Jasmine.  Why did they give her pink lipstick and hoop earrings?  They specifically made a choice to white wash Jasmine

cindy

8. Cinderella

I could scream.  Everything is different and about ten times uglier.  Her face doesn’t even resemble the original.  Cindy’s dress is not dark blue.  To top it off, the designer gave her a sock bun.  Staaaaaahp.

9. Mulan

What the hell is going on with that hair and hairpiece?

10. Pocahontas

Oh poor Pocahontas.  Her mother’s necklace is destroyed.  Her skin is lightened and she has feather earrings.  Her dress has beads and feathers.  Why did they take out the little Native culture that Pocahontas had?
