One month ago today on May 11 2013, Merida, the spirited, adventurous princess from Brave was inducted into the Princess Royal Court at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. The princesses featured in the Royal Court are chosen based on how well they fit into “The Princess Mythology”, rather than specific ties to actual ‘Royalty’.
The current line-up of Princesses in the Royal Court are:
It has been announced that Anna, from the Disney Animation Studios film Frozen, will officially join the Princess Royal Court in 2014. The film Frozen is set to hit theatres on November 27, 2013.
So who are the favorites in my house?
My daughter’s favorite princesses are Rapunzel, Jasmine, Belle, Ariel, Cinderella, Snow White and most recently Merida. Of course she has more than one favorite, but really, should any little girl have to choose just one princess? On our last trip to Disney she was all dressed up in her Merida costume and had so much fun interacting with the ‘very animated’ Merida, who was very playful and fun with the kids!
My son says his favorite princess is Merida because she is “so beautiful and brave”. Like my daughter, he also had fun interacting with Merida at Disney World and was beside himself with glee that she was acting silly with him (he was 4 at the time). His previous favorites include Belle, Snow White and Aurora, mostly due to the fact he received kisses from them at various character greetings in Disney World. He got to the point where he was expecting kisses and was disappointed if he didn’t get one!!
So we’ve shared our favorites. Who are your favorite Disney princesses and why?
