THE WORST PLACES TO GO DRESSED AS A DISNEY PRINCESS WHILE ON DISNEY PROPERTY

This is Disney, so you can be a princess anywhere, right? – well yes. But there are certain things that you may NOT want to do while dressed as a Disney Princess. Here are a few rules: 

  1. Do not jump in the adult or kiddie pool area while dressed as a Disney Princess.  Not only do most of the Resort Pools have rules as far as what you can wear while in the pool, but a pool will certainly damage your princess dress.  Disney Resort pools, especially in the kid areas, tend to have a lot of chlorine in the pool. Chlorine ruins clothing. Especially princess clothing. As a general rule: wear a bathing suit, goggles, and plenty of sunscreen.  Definitely DON’t skip a frolic in the pool just because you want to keep your princess dress on.

    Bathing suits do best in the water

    Make sure you have a towel
  2. Do Not go on Safari while dressed as a Disney Princess. Most of the safaris on Disney Property are sandy, dusty, and sometime muddy.  You do not need your princess gown getting damaged in any way, shape or form.  Unfortunately, Disney Cast Members will not hold up your princess train or long skirt for you, so plan accordingly.  What should you bring on safari? Long socks, comfy shoes, sunscreen, plenty of water, and a camera.

  3. Do not go on Splash Mountain, Kali River Rapids, or any other water ride while dressed as a Disney Princess (see #1 for advice on chlorinated water and princess attire).   While you are always not Guaranteed to get covered in water on some of these rides, you must assume that you will be and prepare accordingly. Which also means that you must secure your phone, wallet, and anything else that you may not want getting wet. (Most of these rides have lockers to lock your personal items away. But, if you take off your princess dress and put it in a locker, please be sure that you have on a bathing suit underneath). 

    You run the risk of getting wet at many Disney rides and play areas.
  4. Are you an adult? If so, then you MUST NOT wear any princess dress on Disney Park Property. Disney has official rules on this. They do not want people confusing you with actual cast members. You may do something called Disney Bounding. That will be explained another day.

    Do not pick up the phone and cancel your trip yet!
  5. Are you frustrated yet? Are you wondering why you should go to Disney at all if there are so many reasons NOT to wear your princess dress in certain places? Do not call your friends to cancel your trip! Here are some great ways to have fun in your princess attire while on Disney Property: 
  6. Cinderella came to Akershus

  •  Go to Akershus Castle, Cinderella’s Castle, and Be Our Guest Restaurant and dine with other royalty. At Be Our Guest Restaurant, you may not meet other princesses but you will surely have the chance to tame a wild beast.
  • All of the character meet and greets welcome guests dressed as princesses. You will surely be treated the way a princess deserves to be treated.  But be careful: If you choose to dress as a Disney Princess and meet another Disney Prince or Princess, they will surely ask questions about your character. 
  • Want to go to a regular restaurant dressed as a princess? Feel free! Also feel free go shopping. Everyone knows that princesses love to shop. 
  • No-one will stop you from sleeping in your princess dress instead of your pajamas but lay down carefully so as not to wrinkle anything. 
  • Do you want to go to the arcade dressed as a Disney Princess? Feel free. But bring a purse for $$ for the game room.  Most of the arcades have a machine that requires Disney guests to put $$ on a game card. 
 

WHAT IF ALL THE PRINCESSES HAD TO COMPETE FOR A FIGURE SKATING GOLD MEDAL? THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS OUTSIDE THE GLARE OF DISNEY’S MAIN STREET

I just had to stop Aurora from snipping off Rapunzel’s hair in her sleep. I told her it’s not worth it – that her fans would stay her fans, even without having magical hair. And then, while walking to the main kitchen of the castle, I had to tackle Cinderella, who was pounced in the shadows with her broom.  After questioning her, I found out she was trying to wack Belle on the knee with it so she wouldn’t be able to have her final dance with HER Beast.  She had told Mulan where Belle would be dancing that night, but Mulan refused to help.

These are the princesses outside of the limelight. They’re competitive, not all smiles.  Tiana has the castle exterminated because she never wants to see another frog but a certain lady likes to slip frogs in her bedroom closet.

Snow White sleeps with her bow and arrow under her pillow and Cinderella’s glass slippers are buried in the backyard in a location secret to even the prince because she is terrified that all of her magical splendor will disappear. Ariel often uses her swimming skills to jump into the castle moat and hides her friends’ crowns deep, where nobody else dares to dive.  Those who want their crowns back have to entice Pocahontas out there in her canoe, with an extra long hook to pull them out.

Trust noone.  Because while these girls have perfected their picture perfect Disney lifestyles, nothing is what it seems.

 

Absolutely nothing is what it seems.  I don’t know if Tonya Harding helped plan the famous attack that ruined her career or not. It doesn’t really matter to me at this point, the entire chain of events was an addictive disaster. I was a 13 year old glued to the television because I admired each and every one of those beautiful competitors.

Are the princes involved in any of these escapades too? Are we going to see a prince bash his head into the main gates of Disney’s Mine Train Ride in an idiotic attempt to escape without being caught?

We know absolutely nothing about the true personality behind Disney’s famous princes. They seem to be mostly in the shadows, so easily could be made to do whatever their heart’s desire desires. 

 The next time you visit Cinderella’s castle be sure to watch your back. These princesses sometimes forget that they are admired by most – and lose their cool  – and there are no longer any fairy godmothers to get them out of messes.

To answer my own question-  if they all had to compete for a gold medal it would be a nightmare for the US Figure Skating Team.  They are already so competitive as it is – plus as far as I know there is no Disney Princess that knows how to figure skate, right?
