For Her Make-A-Wish, She Chose Disney World Over Her One Direction Crush So Her Family Could Experience It With Her

Daisy is a 7-year-old from Houston, who, according to E!, was diagnosed at birth with a form of Dwarfism called Achondroplasia and has had to deal with surgeries to her limbs, head and back ever since. These struggles led a nurse from Children’s Health in Dallas to nominate her for Make-A-Wish.

Daisy, a 7-year-old with Achondroplasia, was nominated for Make-A-Wish and said her wish was to go to Walt Disney World to meet her hero, Belle.

Daisy may be a tiny tot, but she’s got a big heart. Given the option between meeting her favorite One Direction singer and going to Disney World, she chose Disney so her entire family could enjoy this experience together.

After meeting and speaking with Daisy for a bit, Belle had the great idea of giving Daisy a personalized tour.

Literally can’t tell the difference, just two Disney princesses walking.

That’s when the tears came from everyone in a 20 foot radius.

The internet, being what it is, has a Twitter campaign going to get Louis Tomlinson from One Direction to meet Daisy.

We hope she gets her cake and gets to eat it too!

“Elena of Avalor” is coming to an end. The show offered people the first Latina Disney princess and that kind of representation is so vital and so important. Three seasons later, the show is coming to an end and the final show is going to change everything.

“Elena of Avalor” changed representation in Disney and it was a long time coming.

Elena gave Disney fans their first Latina Disney princess. For years, Disney was facing pressure to start to include more characters of color. “The Princess and The Frog” was Disney’s first answer to that call and “Elena of Avalor” came after. Finally seeing someone who represented Latinos was a reality.

The final season is going to be the longest so that Elena could get the finale she deserves.

“It has been a tremendous honor for me to bring Disney’s first Latina princess to the screen,” Gerber told The Hollywood Reporter. “Everyone involved with Elena of Avalor, from the creative team to the unbelievable cast and crew, felt the responsibility to get this right. We created the character of Elena with the hope that she would be a role model, not just for young Latina girls watching, but for all children to be able to see what a true leader looks like.”

This show was so impactful, far beyond just the children that watched it.

“From the beginning, Elena’s story arc has been that she would one day become queen,” Gerber told The Hollywood Reporter. “With the series finale, the creative team has been able to bring Elena’s story to the thrilling conclusion that we always envisioned. I can’t wait for viewers to see the final chapter in Elena’s epic adventure.”

Elena’s legacy within the Latino community is going to last forever, that’s for sure.

From all of the “Elena of Avalor” fans, thank you. This show gave us a chance to see our cultures reflected and celebrated with the Disney magic behind it. What a special moment in entertainment this is.

Get Ready To Bring Disney-Level Magic To Your Wedding

Most likely, your first brushes with wedding planning began with Disney movies. Long before the age of Pinterest, you also likely used the gowns worn by Ariel and Cinderella for your inspo. Welp, your wedding plans just got leveled up thanks to a new plan by Disney and it involves a whole heck of a lot of white lace and magic.

Over the weekend, the company behind some of the most romantic weddings in movie history announced they’re getting into the bridal business.

Pairing up with Allure Bridal, Disney is set to launch Disney Fairy Tale Weddings collection.

The collection is set to feature 16 different designs. All of which will be inspired by your favorite Disney princesses. Yep, including Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Jasmine, Cinderella, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Tiana, and Snow White.

If you didn’t already guess, Ariel’s gown is 100% mermaid-style.

In a statement to the brand’s homepage, Allure’s CEO called the new line “inspired.”

“So many brides grow up admiring their favorite Disney Princess characters and are inspired by their journeys, gowns and stories of the classic films,” Kelly Crum, Allure’s CEO announced in a statement shared on the brand’s website.

In a separate post of their own, Disney shared sketches of the designs for beloved princesses Ariel, Belle and Princess Tiana’s dresses.

According to the Allure announcement, the Disney-inspired wedding gown collection will be available sometime after April. Allure also plans to unveil the entire collection during New York Bridal Fashion Week. The brand plans to sell seven of the 16 gowns through Kleinfeld Bridal in New York and Toronto exclusively as part of the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Platinum Collection. For this line, dresses will be priced between $3,500 to $10,000. For the other dresses included in the collection, prices will range from $1,200 to $2,500 and will be available at select boutique stores across the country.

So it’s official, there will be quite a bit more Disney Latina princesses in the world!
