Since I was a little girl I have always been fascinated by Disney’s princesses. I grew up watching Cinderella on VHS and spent countless hours singing songs from each of the movies. Even last year as a senior in high school we went to Disney World for our band trip. Of course we had to dress up as each of the princesses and attend a character meal with them. However it was shocking to me to find out the history of each of the princesses. The fairytale, happy ending stories that I grew up with aren’t as glamorous as they might seem. Each story is taken from a grim and somewhat gruesome tale.
