Honestly, I forgot this was a category. And there are so many Disney kisses, yet so little time! No time to address the important questions, like…
Since when is an under-developed character kissing a ‘dead’ girl completely acceptable?
Why does no one remember how desperate Ariel was?
Why is this still so cute…
…yet as an adult, this makes you want to cringe?
And, of course, what we were all thinking at the end of Beauty and the Beast…
But I digress.
FAVORITE DISNEY KISS
Honorable mention: Eugene Fitzherbert and Rapunzel
You remember the moment. We all thought he was dead, an entire college auditorium fell silent with tears, and several burly guys around us whispered, “But this is a Disney movie!”
And then sheer joy at Flynn/Eugene’s resurrection! And we were all rewarded with the couple’s long awaited,
But it’s not my favorite.
I realized, I love this kiss, by my favorite part of this scene is right here:
I don’t have a single snarky comment for that embrace. It’s sheer joy, relief, and love all wrapped into one. They’re just so happy he’s alive, the kiss is kind of an afterthought.
Favorite Kiss: Aladdin & Jasmine
This is the Disney kiss I watched over and over again as a kid. Obviously it made quite the impression on me.
I love how it’s really Carpet’s idea to make the new couple smooch.
The look of surprise on both Aladdin and Jasmine’s face, which fades from “Wait, what?!” into “Oh, nope, this is good, kissing is good. I can kiss more. “
Oh, and about those weird Disney kisses you forgot about…
Personal recommendation: If you decide to google “Disney kisses” for whatever purposes, don’t go past page two or three, lest you wander into dark alleys of the internet. *Shiver.*
