Disenchanted! The Hilarious Hit Musical is returning to Orlando for shows at the Plaza Live! Orlando from April 11-20, 2017.
The original production offers an irreverent look at everyone’s favorite Princesses and storybook heroines…one that is definitely not for kids.
On a sunny Saturday (May 11), Disney welcomed Merida, from Disney?Pixar’s Academy Award winning film, “Brave,” into the Disney Princess royal court. She is the eleventh princess to be crowned.
With her mother, Queen Elinor, by her side, the ceremony took place at the Magic Kingdom in front of Cinderella Castle in conjunction with Mother’s Day festivities. Fellow Disney Princesses Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana and Rapunzel, were in attendance, as well.
The event was hosted by Olympic Gold Medal gymnast Gabby Douglas.
“I admire Merida for being determined and courageous as these are qualities that have had a big impact on my own life and helped me achieve my goals as an athlete,” said Douglas to the crowd. “And like Merida, I have a strong relationship with my mom, whose support and belief in me has helped me recognize my own inner princess qualities. It’s really special for us to be here and share in Merida’s celebration, especially on Mother’s Day weekend.”
