I don't know why. I have no true reason or rational. But, I am anti-Disney. Yes, I said it: I do not like Disney! Yes, we own Disney movies and I enjoy them, but beyond that, Disney annoys me. Maybe it is the Princess aspect that has my daughter wanting nothing but pink and nothing but a Punzle dress for her Birthday (which she won't be getting, because I refuse to buy it). I mean really, she is beautiful and a princess without some frilly junky dress. I made her a Princess dress for 1/2 the price Disney charges for the ones they sell that are itchy and poorly made. Maybe it is the fact that I vow to die having never been to DisneyWorld. It is just a huge money making mess that plays on people's desire to live out a movie at a huge cost! Maybe it is the fact that the name just adds $$$$ to cheaply made toys. I mean really, $10.97 for an all plastic Lightening McQueen car that is made in China. Walt Disney, congrats on the empire you have amassed, but know that I am fighting tooth and nail to not add my $$$ to your bank account! I would rather spend my $$$ buying toys and items that actually educate my children and don't have self-esteem side effects.
