Celebrating the Inner Princess in You with Fandango Family!
This is a sponsored post with Fandango Family. All thoughts and opinions are my very own.
Princesses have been in my home for well over 7 years. With my little princess who loves all things pink, mixed with a lot of sparkles, I’ve had my fair share of Disney princess obsession. My daughter loves her princesses. In her humble opinions, the more, the better.
During our visits to Disneyland, we’ve done what we can so that my daughter could meet and greet a Disney princess. When she was younger, her first love was Cinderella or Chalowa, as she would call her. We went through 2 Cinderella dresses and one pair of light-up high heels that she LOVED until she no longer fit into those plastic, sparkly slippers.

Cinderella was everything to her. We had birthday parties, halloween costumes and occasional playdays with other friends dressed as Cinderella. As the years went by, of course she met the other princesses and well, let’s just say there wasn’t a Disneyland trip in which she didn’t have on a princess costume. Princesses are very much part of my little girl’s life.
On March 13, 2015 a new version of Walt Disney’s classic Cinderella will be hitting theaters. I personally haven’t seen the movie, but you can check out the reviews on Fandango.
The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella into the family home. But when Ella’s father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella since she used to work in the cinders, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who abuse her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears as if her fortunes may be about to change when the palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming “Kit.” Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand as a kindly beggar woman steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella’s life forever.
