I am a huge fan of Disney's Dream Big, Princess campaign. Every time I see the commercial on Disney Channel (check it out below) it makes my heart so full and happy. When my girls were very young, I was not crazy about the idea of calling my daughters princess, in fact I would say, "They're not princesses. They're little monsters." But, Disney has changed the tone of being a Princess, and I am on board. No longer do Princesses wait around for a Prince to kiss them or fall victim to a villain. Nope. Princesses take their lives into their own hands, accomplish goals that others wouldn't even dream of attempting, they save the day and save their families and proudly seek out adventures.
If you can dream it, you can do it. Which princess inspires you to follow your dreams?
If you have not been to the classic El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, it is a definite must. It is so much more than watching a movie, it is an experience. Disney Princesses as exemplified in the four films of DREAM BIG, PRINCESS at the ElCapitan Theatre inspire girls everywhere to dream, create and celebrate who they are by giving them the role models audiences all know and love. For every girl who dreams big, there’s a princess to show her it’s possible. A princess is someone who befriends the lonely, never gives up and explores new and exciting worlds. She sets an example for all girls to have the courage to make their dreams real, the strength to protect our planet and the wisdom to believe in themselves and what they can accomplish if they dare to dream big.
