We all have one man to thank for all the magical Disney Princess inspired costumes, coloring books and puzzles that filled our childhood (or your children’s childhood if you happened to be a queen at during the 90’s), and his name is Andy Mooney! Andy started working for Disney in 1999 with the duty of improving consumer products. That same year Andy had the pleasure of attending a Disney On Ice show, when he noticed that girls dressed up as princesses surrounded him. At the time, these girls were sporting non-Disney, generic princess get-ups, which gave Andy the idea of the Disney Princess franchise.
Now, while dressing up in a Cinderella replica gown, slipping on some glass grippers and balancing a crown on our hair all day may have made you feel like a princess as a little girl, it is no secret that these same methods don’t work today.
