You're confused. Enraged. Devastated. Angry. You set everyone on fire around you. You want to hide in an evil shell of darknesss where everything is black and no one can touch you. Or ever hurt you. Though it sounds like a rape victim's story -- it's not. It's the storyline of Maleficent.
The word "princess" has evolved in the past few years. Characters are now depicted as capable and kind. There is a relatable, qualitative substance. They are less ethereal and more capable. The princesses of today are depicted with a breath of vibrant life as well as a happy ending.
While watching The Lion King recently, I couldn't help but think of Simon Sinek's quote, "There are leaders and then there those who lead." It's like the old leadership proverb, "He who thinks he leads, but has no followers, is merely taking a walk."
It's no surprise that the film can only be so bold. Which makes it all the more notable that, in one scene, the film is shockingly bold, in a way no Disney film has ever dared to be.
There's always something new cooking at Disney World. From new attractions and parades to improved smartphone apps and massive park expansions (and, yes, price increases), here's what to expect at Walt Disney World in 2014.
Remember: Disney is a giant playground. You can either play well with others or go home crying. Your choice.

I'm not going to apologize for laughing my ass off at Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West.
At the time of its release in 1940, one critic called Fantasia, the animated Disney film, "an ambitious orgy of color, sound, and imagination." More than just a motion picture masterpiece, it is a groundbreaking cinematic tone poem.
You already know that I love all of you deeply. What you also need to know is that the thought of taking all three of you and the stuff you require to live on a plane to a theme park vacation makes me physically ill.
When it comes to the Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, it's kind of a tradition that good enough isn't really good enough.
During my 20 years of work (fun) in the travel industry, I have sold travel to a broad spectrum of travelers and read evaluations from over 10,000 travelers. Am I qualified to predict the future? Not at all, but I will share my observations anyway.
She doesn't yet know about the enchanted world of Disney, but two months ago she saw Minnie Mouse. She sat propped in a little girl's room of a house we'd soon buy, looked at us cheerily with her wide eyes and happy grin.
