I wish more people would realize that the audience determines the popularity of princesses & the merchandise they see. At Disney World, Frozen, Big Hero 6,Moana, Brave, etc all had the same amount of merchandise pre-release and very similar promotional events. Frozen was the one that blew up among children and adults. In Summer 2014, when I worked in the Magic Kingdom, the merchandise was EVERYWHERE and was constantly selling out to the point where parks had to limit 3 of one item to the customers. People waited as much as SIXTEEN HOURS (according to the attractions cast members) to meet Elsa & Anna during the event when MK was open for 24 hours. Originally, Elsa & Anna was just met at the Norway pavilion in Epcot but that QUICKLY changed due to demand. The crowds and sales determine what Disney focus on. Now that the Frozen hype has died down, stores previously filled with Frozen merch has been replaced by Elena merch. YOU determine what brands/titles Disney focuses on. Buy the merch, talk about the movie, request this and that, then your favorites will get more love from them.
Um so Aladdin was so charming today he made me forget I could speak. He called me his princess and I was totally speechless. He also wouldn’t let go of my hands the entire time. It didn’t hurt that he was totally handsome too. 😍
