Jess Salafia Ward
Jess is an Aussie, an attorney and a die-hard Disney fan. She grew up in a city not too far from P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney; and she still enjoys running around in Snow White pajamas and serenading her family members with Sleeping Beauty’s “Once Upon A Dream” (though, unlike Princess Aurora, she is not blessed with the gift of song). She became an Honorary Princess of the Magic Kingdom after her Flynn-Rider lookalike fiancé proposed at Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner at Walt Disney World in 2018. Jess is an Elvis-lover like Lilo, and is otherwise singing along to her Frozen, Moana and Coco soundtracks (anyone listening will wish Ursula would pay her a voice-taking visit). When she doesn't have her nose stuck in a book, Jess delights in writing for The Disney Blog and sharing with fellow fans all things Disney.

Unless you are a big Star Wars fan, Star Wars: Queen’s Peril probably won’t excite you. I, unfortunately, was wholly disappointed. After reading Queen’s Shadow last week (check out my review here), I had high hopes that the prequel would be even better. It wasn’t. Most of the book is… Read More »Book Review: Star Wars: Queen’s Peril Disappoints
All of this at-home time has me daydreaming (more than I usually do – possibly concerning, I know) about Disney princesses, what makes them tick and how they might respond in certain real-life situations. So, naturally I wondered: if Disney princesses had the benefit of… Read More »How would Disney Princesses spend their time during quarantine?
