    I LOVE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST!! We went to go see it “on ice” in Chicago when I was younger, and got cute little cups with Chip on them.

    that cupcake looks delicious!

    I was at a restaurant the other day and they gave us a tea kettle that looked like the one from Beauty and the Beast. We could not remember the name of her!

    I saw Beauty and the Beast with my sister’s and aunt for my bachelorette party last spring! I loved it. By far my favorite movie growing up… I was Belle numerous years for Halloween, my mom made a “Belle” dress for me and everything!

    The grilled zucchini looks amazing!

    I remember absolutely loving The Little Mermaid when I was a kid, I think it came out when I was nine or so. I loved other Disney movies, too, like Aladdin and Lion King. I bet I would have enjoyed that show, and I KNOW I would have enjoyed that cupcake!

    The first time I saw Beauty and the Beast live on-stage, I was pretty much like a child ooh-ing and aah-ing from the audience. Totally classic.

    I love Beauty and the Beast! I saw a small production at a community theater and it was awesome, probably because the theater is well funded. I’d love to see the Broadway production. For me, it’s only second to Cinderella as far as Disney movies go. πŸ™‚

    I was also pretty obsessed with Beauty and the Beast as a little girl, mostly because she loved to read like I did – and she became a princess! I saw the musical several years ago on Broadway and though it was great. And if Lion King ever does come to your neck of the woods – see it! It’s absolutely amazing.

      Thanks for posting this. I’m the only one in my group of friends that can’t stand Disney, mainly for being overtly sexual and misogynistic. You should read the jezebel posts on the Disney Princesses, they’re fantastic.

      • Anne
        January 26, 2011

        Jezebel is one of my favorite sources for news dealing with women/gender/sex/sexuality/pop culture/etc. And the magazine/journal Bitch.

    • Courtney
      January 23, 2011

      Give me a break. They are fairytales, not something to base your life around. People need to stop taking everything so seriously and just enjoy life rather than overanalyzing every little thing. One major problem of our society is that we forgot how to relax and realize some things aren’t major social statements. You also need to remember the original stories these are based on were written hundreds of years ago and were meant to be slightly ironic and ridiculous.

      • RunningOnCoffee
        January 23, 2011

        Agreed. FAIRY tales are not REALITY.

        Otherwise, we better not let kids watch Pinocchio, or they might actually think their noses will grow when they lie! There are probably all kinds of other awful hidden messages in fairy tales like Hansel and Gretel, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, etc. too.

        Actually the first time I watched Pinocchio as a kid, I really did think my nose was going to grow if I lied. True story.

    • Meghann
      January 23, 2011

      It’s true – fairytales are not reality, but they’re still fun. If we take fairytales, princesses, pirates, ‘once upon a time..’ and everything else out of children’s lives what are they left with? It’s about imagination and embracing childhood.

    • Hatty
      January 23, 2011

      I’m sorry but i highly doubt a little kid has ever watched a Disney movie and gone away with the message “if you’re hot a man will save you”. To them it is all about imagination, magic, wonder and excitement. Like another commenter said, why is it we must over-analyse everything, is it really that hard to accept that maybe some things can just be a little bit of happiness and magic for a child.

    • Meredith
      January 23, 2011
