5 Worst Love Lessons From Disney Movies

Hey y'all! You all know that I love Disney (you can see the extent of how much I love Disney HERE), so when I saw that Seventeen wrote an on-line article about the worst Disney love lessons, I really wanted to take a peak. I did, and I totally agree about these. Check them out, what do you think? And are there any more that you can think of?

Let's go.

We know there are some great love lessons we can learn from our favorite Disney movies, but there are some pretty bad ones, too. Here are five times your fave fairytales got it all wrong. 

1. You have to trick a guy to fall in love with you. 
In the The Little Mermaid, Ursula may be the villain, but Ariel is the one who's willing to do anything to get Eric to fall in love with her, even if it means tricking him and leaving her family and friends behind to become a human. Sure, she almost lost everything, but in the end, she still left everyone who loved her behind and traded up for nice digs, a cute prince, and a killer pair of legs. 




2. You should sacrifice everything for love.
Pocahontas risked everything for a random guy she met in the woods, only for him to leave her to sail back home in the end. Moral of the story: When you’ve got great animal friends and a talking tree who has your back, you don't need to a guy, especially one who is scared to tell his friends about you. 




3. The perf guy will change your whole life. 
Instead of standing up to her step-mother and evil step-sisters, Cinderella slaved away while she waited for mice, a fairy godmother, and a prince to rescue her. Okay, cleaning up after your whole family sounds pretty miserable, but the prince wasn't exactly the ultimate catch. He danced with Cinderella all night and still couldn't remember what she looked like?! And who's to say if that glass slipper never popped off her step-sister's foot, he wouldn't have married her instead? Come on—a little bit of dirt doesn't completely change your face!  




4. You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince. 
Determined to start her own restaurant regardless of money issues or where she came from,  Tiana in the Princess and the Frog seemed like she was the first real power girl princess. But then she almost lost it all because someone told her if she kissed a frog, he’d turn into a prince and give her the money she needed for her business. She didn’t need a guy to save her, and seriously, can we lose that frog cliche already? Kissing a frog isn't the way to find a prince, and finding a prince won't solve all your problems. You don't need to wait for any guy to create your own amazing life!




5. You should lie around and wait for your true love to rescue you. 
Snow White was stuck in the woods living in fear, and the only thing that could save her was “true love” and a kiss from a special prince charming. Seriously? Couldn't she have started a new life somewhere far away from the evil queen? Or better yet, just not have taken food from a stranger?

Ok, now it's me again to say one last thing....

  1. Wow, I liked those bad themes! Okay, that totally wouldn't sound good out of context. And I love Disney, and I love the little mermaid and Pocahontas, but I feel a bit like they're overrated.... (Like frozen. Awesome, but not as much as everyone else obsessively claims)

  2. Some of them are good fiction stories and gives you a uplifting sense that dreams do come true... But when put it that way, it sounds creepy. LOL! What if the prince was angry with his girlfriend back at his kingdom and ended up finding Snow white? Or the prince from cinderella couldn't remember because he has ADD? **snicker :P that is why his dad the king wants him to marry. ROTFLOL!

    1. You're right, all of the Disney movies also have great, encouraging themes too :) I'm always curious about the backstories of movies too!! I mean, we really don't know too much about the princes.... Like what were their childhoods like?

    2. Oh yeah true! That would be so cool to see! :)

    3. I've always wondered why they don't have Disney Price movies?

    4. Oh yeah!! I never thought of that before. Hmm..

    5. I'm thinking of writing a series of fairytale retellings in the perspective of the princes.... What do you think of that idea?

    6. I think that is fantastic! Go for it! I can't wait to read it. I would love to see it from their point of view. GENIUS!

  3. These are so true! I've always thought that Snow White is a bit of an idiot -_-
    I have a Cinderella headcanon/story idea/novel premise where she's a pretty, sweet but slightly ditzy type who fangirls over the prince, and when she finally meets him he's a complete player who dances with her all night cause she's pretty, but TURNS OUT he actually has a girlfriend (well of course he does, he's a handsome prince!) who storms in on the ball ... and bad stuff happens. I don't know. Just a headcanon.

  7. Wow, I've never really thought of it like that! I suppose that although children wouldn't really notice small points like these, it could potentially be quite damaging if repeatedly told to them... interesting post!

  11. Just came across your blog and love it :) New follower!
    These points are so true, Also the fact that it's always about finding a man, thats why I liked Frozen because it was more about a different sisterly love :)
