Rapunzel officially crowned 10th Disney Princess

What a magical afternoon in London! Rapunzel was officially welcomed into the Disney Princess Court when she was crowned earlier today at Kensington Palace. Rapunzel’s Royal Celebration brought together all the Disney princesses, little princesses from around the world, and a few surprise celebrity guests.

Many people showed up for the free procession through Hyde Park.

I started the day off with a long ride on the tube, and as I got closer to the station, I could already tell that this was a popular event. I saw many families with little girls dressed as their favorite princesses, or wearing a Disney princess backpack or some other identifier. It felt like I was on a bus to Disney World! As I reached Hyde Park, I was blown away at how many people had turned up! There was a procession of all the princesses throughout the park that was free for the public to attend.

After the princesses processed through the park, they dismounted their carriages in front of Kensington Palace (at this point, you had to have an invitation to see the rest of the event.) Each princess was announced by name, but it was sometimes hard to hear because of how many little girls were screaming “Ariel! Ariel!” or “BELLE!!!” Ten lucky girls from around the world were picked to be paired with one of the princesses, and they got to present them with flowers and give them a hug, and be part of a group photo in front of the palace.

I started trying to do pictures and video, but I decided to focus on just video after Snow White came through. It was hard enough getting video of Maximus, who did make an appearance, than to juggle two cameras to also get pictures! Full video of the procession below the jump.

Rapunzel and Flynn Meet the iPad, Viral Video

I am very seldom disappointed by Disney walk-around characters at the meet and greets. They do such a good job maintaining character, handling the little challenges that come with interacting with all sorts of guests, and enduring extremes of heat and humidity often while wearing… Read More »Rapunzel and Flynn Meet the iPad, Viral Video

Disney Song Medley by Alan Menken

I love it whenever Disney releases a movie or DVD overseas. Because that usually means we get some great snip of footage, deleted scenes, or other performance we haven’t seen before. In this case it’s Tangled being released on DVD in the UK and the… Read More »Disney Song Medley by Alan Menken

Ceremony to add Rapunzel to Disney Princess Court

All this time I’ve been a Disney fan and I had no idea that there was an official ceremony for adding a princess to the Disney Princess Court. This October 2nd, for the first time an event called ‘Rapunzel’s royal celebration’ will take place at Kensington Palace in London, UK. Girls from across the globe & every Disney princess character will join the festivities. Well, I guess if Disney thinks it will sell more merchandise, then I’ll go along with it.
