    Just adding my thoughts. Belle's the best princess.

    Nope. To fit the theme, we should just see who's qualified by birth to decide which is the best princess.

    So you're saying we should be hoping for a live action Little Mermaid?

    Oh dear god, Jello, you bumped THIS THREAD. [face_laugh]

    I finally had one of Disneyland's Belles explain to me why she wasn't a princess.

    It's because you never see her marry the prince. That... well, makes sense, but is DUMB.

    That's right. I did. Because it's the best.

    And I guess there's a distinction with being a princess, and being a Disney Princess. Eilonwe is the former, but not the latter. Mulan is the latter but not the former. Cinderella is both.

    It's good to see you're healthily in touch with your other side, Jay.

    Look you have to know these things when you work at Disneyland. It's relevant.
