Do you remember a time when you thought of Disney solely as something relating to some movies you watched? No? I don’t either. Disney is something that has pretty much always been fairly omnipresent throughout most people’s childhoods, of course, but mostly in relation to movies, dolls, and, if you are lucky and have fun parents, a trip to Disney (either World or Land). But when one grows up, it becomes apparent that, not only does Disney not go away in adulthood, it somehow becomes even more apparent, thanks to nostalgia and cross-promotion. (Take, for example, this Beauty and the Beast-themed Le Creuset dish.)
But the most insidious domain for Disney-related material to infiltrate is relationships. I am all for letting people enjoy things, I suppose, but why must do it in a way that offends me personally? An old high school friend of mine recently proposed to his girlfriend (now his fiancée, I suppose) at Disney World, which is not necessarily a unique thing to do, I suppose, but is something that made me realize that there is a kind of person who might appreciate getting a proposal at Disney World, and I am not one of those people. Perhaps you can relate? If so, you will agree that these Disney-themed relationship goals are very bad! Check them out here:
1. So do you guys, just, like…wear this all day?
2. And this?
3. I appreciate the artistry and commitment here, but this cannot be comfortable!
4. Why are they…babies???
5. You don’t have to do this:
6. Or this:
7. Or this Snow White fanfic text???
8. This is a…weird standard to have, but okay!
11. No THANK YOU:
12. This is Disney WORLD, not Disney LAND. If you’re going to be corny, get it right!!
What do you think of these Disney relationship goals? Am I being “harsh” in my judgment? Let us know in the comments!
