Disneyland's new Snow White ride criticized for including Prince Charming's 'non-consensual' kiss


The Snow White ride at Disneyland has received some controversy for depicting the scene where Prince Charming wakes up Snow White with a kiss.

Theme park reviewers Katie Dowd and Julie Tremaine addressed the issue in an article on SFGate, writing that the kiss is one "he gives to her without her consent, while she's asleep, which cannot possibly be true love if only one person knows it's happening. Haven't we already agreed that consent in early Disney movies is a major issue? That teaching kids that kissing, when it hasn't been established if both parties are willing to engage, is not okay?"

Yeah she’s 14 and he’s like 31, it’s super creepy. Plus I just really fucking hate this movie.
Yeah, the ages bothered me a lot more than the kiss. I always took the kiss to be a farewell kiss because everyone thought she was dead or in an irreversible coma. It wasn't meant to be sexual, more like a goodbye.

I loved that tumblr

i do not think there's anything behind these ages! i've never seen this anywhere before.
In the original Grimm fairy tale, Snow White is seven. Neither her age (nor the prince's) are specified in the Disney movie.
Just settling in for part 2 of the ontd Disneygate saga. Don’t mind me. 😌
Then the follow-up post to contradict everything.
suddenly the koons is 360.

I need to know how this MFer knew that a kiss would wake her up because like...if that was the magic, I would want someone to do it to wake me tf up too, but did he just ASSUME it would? Problematic
“Problematic” is really sending me 😂😂😂😂
I was literally a child last time I saw it, but from what I remember, he didn't know or assume, he was just giving her like a farewell kiss? he thought she was dead, right?
I haven't seen it in a long time either but yes I think that's what the situation was meant to be
Kissing a random corpse you found doesn't make it better.

...I've never seen the Disney movie, but iirc, in the Grimm fairytale version, true Snow White choked on a piece of poisoned apple and woke up when the prince asks the dwarves to be allowed to take the glass coffin with Snow White to his castle since he can't live without seeing her anymore, the coffin slips and falls, and the piece of apple lodged in her throat pops out. And then they get married and kill her stepmother at the festivities, as you do.

There was a CBS radio show in the forties called "This Is My Best." They did an adaptation of the Disney movie, and when the prince kisses Snow White at the end, he says he "found the antidote for the old witch's poison apple," which suggests he did know he had to kiss her to break the spell.

You can listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyoNVQR-HcI&ab_channel=DisneyVintage

lmao I've got to work, y'all have fun in here being mad at an amusement park ride!
I feel like the authors of the article know what they’re doing with this topic and how they’re writing about it lol
lol why do you think op posted it? for informative, nuanced discussion???

They’re probably a member on here. 😂
That wouldn’t surprise me. I’m pretty sure throughout the years a lot of people have promoed themselves on here acting like they’re someone else lol

ONTD, if your true love was in coma and only your kiss could wake them but they can't consent, would you leave them in that coma and move on to the next person?

Can you give someone CPR if they can't consent?
yes you can!
Yes you can leave that person in a coma and move on or yes you can give someone CPR without consenting?

True love is letting my soulmate drop dead because I respect him too much to make him kiss me. Sorry babe, love you, see you in hell. <3
i don't want to be mobbed by the internet so coma it is, sorry babes


If I was the one in the coma, literally any random person who's shown me 3 minutes of attention could wake me up tbh
A step in the right direction, but NOT enough. Hope they scrap this fairytale all together seeing as it glorifies “whiteness” to mean “beauty” and I hope they do the same for Sleeping Beauty.
*sigh*
lol I'm sitting here trying to write up a well thought out comment about how I get what they're saying but at the same time like this is a fairy tale idk I'm just gonna leave
Basically lol
lmao what is this from?

My roommate in college made us all watch Snow White bc it was her fave and watching it back I really didn't like it, particularly Snow White. Haven't seen it since though.
Even as a kid I found Snow White so boring lol. All I wanted was Ariel all the time.
Snow White was my favourite as a kid but not because of the story. There was something about her garish outfit that caught my eye and I also liked stories set in the forest. Stupid reasoning, yes, but such is the critical thought process of a four-year-old.

I always hated Snow White until I watched the Kristen Kreuk version
I saw SW when I was relatively older because it came out of the vault and I was completely underwhelmed. My mom had seen it when she was younger and on the rewatch even she was like “yeah, this was shit.”
last time i saw it, she felt so weird to me. like untethered to reality to the point that she was making me laugh. maybe i'll watch tonight
I’m tired and so bored 😒
I’d be pissed as hell if I woke up to some white man twice my age smooching on me while I was peacefully enjoying my sleep after having a healthy snack. Nigga leave me be!
like when Buffy told everyone she had been in heaven and was happy welp
I enjoy sleep far too much to be anything but upset with this story lol.
omg so I finally watched Buffy a few years ago with my husband (who had seen it a million times) and when they brought Buffy back I was like "wtf, what if she was having a great time in Heaven?"

In the original story wasn't the apple lodged in her throat and dislodged when the dwarves were carrying the casket? They should go with that. At least it has the lesson of teaching kids not to accept anything from strangers.
I’m sorry, I beg your pardon…👀😳
Just wait until you hear how Sleeping Beauty woke up in the original tale.

[Spoiler (click to open)]She gets r*ped by the prince, has his baby (somehow? while still in a coma), and the baby finds its way up to her finger and sucks the enchanted flax out, and she wakes up. And then marries her r*pist.

ya, you think that's bad? in the original beauty and the beast:

[Spoiler]belle was blonde and she wasn't kidnapped by the beast - she just went to the castle for an orgy with all the furniture. the beast thought she was pretty nice and she liked that he was rich so they got together. it's a really shameful story about compulsory monogamy

Well, supposedly in the original Cinderella story [Spoiler (click to open)]she had sex at the ball with the prince. And he goes around having sex with all of the women in the kingdom, until he finds "the right fit." That's why in some version it's a fur slipper, as a weird euphemism.

Close. In the original story, the prince (who hadn't met her before, unlike the Disney film) stumbles upon the glass coffin and the dwarves, and he thinks she is so beautiful that he begs to take the coffin to his castle so that he can 'honor and cherish her as his most loved one.' The dwarves finally agree because they see how earnest he is, and the prince's servants stumble as they carry the coffin and the apple piece dislodges. She asks where she is, the prince says she's with him, safe, he loves her, then the story points out "she loved him" and they go get married and have their wedding where they murder the evil queen with red hot iron shoes.

Tbh Disney substituting the wake-up kiss from the Grimm Sleeping Beauty for "prince thought this corpse was super pretty and wanted to take it home, then his servants tripped and oop popped out the apple piece" was the right way to go, in terms of making the tale more romantic and having a more dramatic "wake up" moment.

nnn op woke up and chose violence
ursula is my role model. a true bad bitch
