Oh Tiana. What an awesome character she is! This gal is definiltey in my top favorite Disney princesses. Let me give a run-down on why Tiana is our spotlight this month for The Princess Purpose.

She knows that dreams require effort

Tiana is an ideal example of what it is to work hard. In order to reach her dreams of owning her own restaurant, she has the determination to save up money and is willing to sacrifice fun nights out with friends in order to reach her goals. This girl does not take handouts!

In her movie, Princess and the Frog, she’s told that wishing on stars isn’t enough; you have to work for your dreams. She wishes, she works, she sacrifices. And in the end, through all her hard work, she ultimately reaches her goals, and owns her own restaurant.

She’s a good role model for all ages

All the characteristics portrayed by Tiana in this film make her an excellent role model. She’s one of the most relatable Disney princesses for most viewers, and that’s mainly because she’s a realistic character. She has the doubt and struggle that dreamers come across. She experiences hard times, and through those times her actions show her true character: a hard-working, kind, and honest young woman who never gives up on her dreams. Her endearing personality, coupled with her realistic approach to life make her a wonderful role model for people of all ages and genders.

She Ends Up with the handsome Prince… with good reason

In many Disney princess love stories, the princess gives up her previous life to be with the prince (which I realize that some of these instances are the MUCH BETTER option, i.e. Cinderella). But in The Princess and the Frog, it was Prince Naveen who gave up his past life to be with Tiana, and he helps her achieve her dreams. She truly does get the best of both worlds!

Hiya pals! I’m Erica. And I am probably the most excited about this blog (okay, but really I’m so thrilled you’re here)! I’ve been thinking about starting something like this for a few years, because I just want to have a Disney love fest all the freaking time.

Growing up, my family wasn't too big on TV, since all we wanted to watch were Disney movies over and over again! It was always a treat when mom and dad would announce that we were going to Disneyland! We’d go for one day, one park only. Though this made each trip quick, it made each one so special. Before my DCP, I’d only been to Disneyland 5 times. All those vacations are treasured memories for me. I believe it’s because of this that going to a Disney park, even now after having gone many times, continues to be incredibly sweet to me.

I am huge lover of Disney films, yes as an adult without children of my own. I love them for their positive messages, their catchy music (oh, the music!!), their oh-so-quotable humor, and their amazing examples of good vs. evil.

Okay well “adventure is waiting.” See you out there!
