Disney Announces Special Princess Event

world princess week

Disney princesses are an iconic staple when it comes to the Walt Disney Company. They are present in plenty of Disney films, Disney musicals, and Disney Parks. However, with the constant introduction of new Disney or Pixar (or Marvel) characters to Disney culture, Disney princesses can sometimes seem to be taken for granted. Now, Disney princesses’ big chance to be the focus is back for 2022: it’s World Princess Week!

World Princess Week is coming up next week to finish off August, and just like last year in 2021, the special weeklong celebration will include plenty of bonus Disney princess experiences. In addition, Disney princesses will take turns being honored on specific weekdays with particularly limited-edition Disney Park treats or Ultimate Princess Celebration events.

Last year, the Disney princesses who were honored with special Disney Park days in World Princess Week were Tiana, Cinderella, Belle, Mulan, Ariel, Moana, Elsa, and Anna. This year, Raya from the 2021 movie Raya and the Last Dragon is officially becoming a Disney princess as well, so it seems likely that the Disney heroine will be one of the 2022 honorees since she is about to be an official Disney princess!

World Princess Week is part of Disney’s Ultimate Princess Celebration, which is (according to the Disney Parks Blog) “a global extravaganza across the Walt Disney Company that highlights the impact of Disney Princesses and the courage and kindness they inspire in fans all around the world.”

Courage and kindness are the main themes when it comes to Disney princesses these days, and Disney actually partnered with ELLE magazine last year for a special “courage and kindness” series that focused on celebrities with official Disney princess traits. The ELLE Disney princesses included Jane Fonda, Naomi Osaka, Misty Copeland, Eva Longoria, and Halima Aden (as well as many other celebrities or activists)!

Did you follow World Princess Week and the Ultimate Princess Celebration (and head to locations like Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Springs, Disneyland Paris Resort, Disneyland Resort, or Aulani Resort and Spa to enjoy some special Disney princess bonuses in each Disney Park) last summer? Are you planning on doing so again for this year’s Ultimate Princess Celebration?
