The most magical place on earth, is also the most expensive place on earth...
I found a fantastic blog post that has a break down of the cost of a one day pass starting from 1971, however, the money was in dollars. Since I'm based in the UK, I thought I would convert it into pounds for my fellow UK readers.

Disney Princess fans are about to explode at the impending Wreck It Ralph movie (due November this year) as all Princesses unite.
Never before has this been seen, let alone pretty much all princesses are voiced by their original voice actresses. The only few who do not have the same voice actresses are Snow White, Cinderella and Aurora since unfortunately the original cast are no longer with us.
What is also pretty awesome is that Elsa, Anna and Moana are featured here too. These three are yet to be welcomed officially into the Disney Princess brand.
I cannot put it into words on how excited I am to see all Disney Princesses together in one universe!
I was worried however, with how Disney would redesign the classical princesses. Thankfully I find the designs to be very accurate and true to the classics. Here are the comparisons:
You can seen the close resemblance in design. The only major differences are the size of her eyes. As Disney animators believe the bigger the eyes, the bigger the cuteness factor. The other difference (if you're being really picky) is the tilted bow.
This one bothered me for quite some time as I couldn't figure out what was so different. Turns out it was her ears! She's never had them before in her ball gown!
This has to be one of my most favourite redesigns of the princesses for Wreck It Ralph! I cannot fault this at all.
Ariel's hair is spot on, besides her mermaid tail, her most distinctive feature is her beautiful red hair.
Now this one probably bothers me the most. Belle's neck is TOO skinny. What is that about?! In her original film, she has beautifully strong broad shoulders. Before becoming a princess she worked on a farm, she was accurately designed in the original, but this new design lets her down.
The only thing that shocked me about this was the pointedness of her nose compared to her age eyes, it's a rather alarming design. I think perhaps her eyes should be made a tad on the smaller side.
I think Pocahontas was well designed, considering in her original films she didn't have a nose.
Again, this is up there with my favourites with Aurora and Ariel. The accuracy of her face shape, eyes and hair is flawless.
Now I was never a big fan of the original movie, but I do love her new look. She has amazing dimples in the sides of her cheeks demonstrating such detail in her character.
What are your thoughts on the new designs for the Princesses?
This bracket game has caused a HUGE divide on the internet. Where we were asked, what is the best Disney movie of all time?
We all have our personal favourites, the one Disney movie you would watch over and over again as a kid and without realising it, your singing along. Whilst there are so many fantastic Disney and Pixar movies, narrowing your way down the list to find your ultimate movie can be challenging.
Here is what I ended up with as my ultimate favourite Disney movie...
I can honestly say, if anyone chooses a car movie over any other Pixar movies, I strongly disagree. Whilst I enjoyed Cars and Cars 3, Cars 2 was an abomination to the trilogy.
Let me know what is your Ultimate Disney movie!

Wreck it ralph 2: ralph breaks the internet
This retro gaming animation is back for a sequel in November 2018! With so much to look forward to with nostalgic characters and a great story line!
The nutcracker and the four relams
This feature film has snuck it's way into 2018 Disney releases. I'd not heard of this film until watching a trailer before a YouTube video. This movie looks so magical! It's due to make its debut in cinemas November 2018!
Mary poppins returns
This live action film has managed to unnoticeably slip its way into 2018. It is due to make its debut in December 2018.
I've always wanted to be turned into a Disney princess. So many birthdays ago, I asked my boyfriend if he'll find someone to turn me into one. Unfortunately, no luck. We look at hundreds of different artists who just didn't capture Disney's animation.
Finally, for my 22nd birthday I came across an artist who goes by myavatart. He does some fantastic work. His prices are reasonable, particularly for the level of quality and how quickly the drawing is completed. He offers unlimited changes to the drawing!
I had myself drawn as Ariel, Belle, Jasmine and Aurora.
As soon as Christmas comes around, I know exactly where I'm heading too!
