To highlight the entertaining, empowering, and inspiring princess characters kids around the world know and love, Disney is putting together an epic celebration. Disney’s Ultimate Princess Celebration is a yearlong, global event aimed at highlighting the importance of Disney princesses through music playlists, stories, TV specials, and more. Here’s how you can join in on the fun.
Listen To The Ultimate Princess Celebration Playlist
To really get into the princess spirit, Disney has put together a curated playlist of songs from the most iconic animated Disney films. Whether you’re a fan of the ‘90s movies like Mulan, or prefer some of the more modern films like Frozen, there is a song on this playlist for everyone in the family. (There are 59 songs in total.) If you’re really trying to keep your kids entertained, the playlist is nearly three hours long, which will make for the ultimate dance party.
Read The Disney Princess Stories For Free
From now until Aug. 31, you can download The Tales of Courage and Kindness story collection, which includes 14 brand new, inspiring stories, featuring the Disney princesses. This story collection is available to everyone, for free. And if you don’t have an e-reader, you can click through the individual stories, featuring characters like Pocahontas, Jasmine, Anna, Elsa, and Merida on the Disney Princess Stories website.
Watch The Ultimate Princess Celebration TV Special
The playlist and story collection will have to tide you over until Disney Princess Remixed — An Ultimate Princess Special airs on the Disney Channel and Disney+ this August, according to Good Morning America. The 30-minute long special will feature musical performances from some of Disney’s most talented stars, according to D23, and include a performance by Brandy of her brand new song, “Starting Now,” which also happens to be the official Ultimate Princess Celebration anthem.
Attend Disney Princess — The Concert
If you’ve missed concerts, then you’re in luck. The Disney princess songs are going on a nationwide tour, officially titled Disney Princess — the Concert, which kicks off on Nov. 1. The concert will star Tony nominees, Susan Egan and Laura Osnes, Grammy nominee Courtney Reed, and newcomer Aisha Jackson, who will all sing princess songs during a concert filled with story and animation.
Tour dates and ticket prices have not yet been announced, so keep an eye out for this information in the future.
Celebrate At The Disney Parks
But the celebration doesn’t stop here. If you’re going to any of the Disney parks across the world any time soon, then you’re in luck. Disneyland attendees will be able to ride on Snow White’s Enchanted Wish when the park opens back up on April 30, and Walt Disney World guests will be greeted by princesses at the Magic Kingdom in a regal procession.
Other Ways To Celebrate Princesses
In addition to all of these things, Disney will be releasing all new Disney princess products and toys, like dolls, to bring the celebration to life. Keep your eyes open for new Disney princess collaborations with brands like LEGO, Funko, Adidas, and Coach, according to Good Morning America.
Disney has also collaborated with Starlight Children’s Foundation to make hospital gowns and pants inspired by the super strong Disney princesses. These gowns and pants will be donated to pediatric facilities across the nation to instill courage in the wearers — just like the Disney princesses.
Of course, if this isn’t enough, you can always watch the movies from the Disney princess collection on Disney+.
