Disney’s Ladies in RED
Walt Disney World
Orlando, Florida

Rifling through my picture directories from the past 4 years or so, looking for suitable fodder for Ruby Tuesday (hosted at Work of the Poet by Mary/The Teach), I began to notice a pattern – Disney’s Ladies In RED!

First up is Disney’s most famous REDhead since carrot-topped Peter Pan – it’s Ariel, aka The Little Mermaid. Please notice that Ariel’s best friend, Sebastian the lobster, is also sportin’ da ruby hue.  😀   Photo taken at Disney-MGM Studios, oops I mean Disney’s Hollywood Studios – May 2005
  Here’s one of my favorites – it’s my girl Mulan, a true Disney hero, with her faithful guardian, Mushu. She’s BETTER than a Disney Princess; she saved all of China from the Huns! Someday, I will treat you all to my feminist rant in praise of Mulan’s shedding of the trappings of femininity. But not today. This was taken in EPCOT outside the China pavilion, which is pretty much entirely RED on the outside, February 2008.


It’s Minnie Mouse, all decked out for the Flower and Garden Festival, with Mickey by her side in equal RED splendor.  Now, you have to admit that they are both stylin’ to the max as topiaries! EPCOT, April 2004.


Here she is, the other strong female non-Princess Disney character. She’s Mary Poppins, and she’s practically perfect in every way, right down to her use of THE power color, RED! Taken during a parade at the Magic Kingdom, May 2005


“Shift yer cargo dearie, show them yer starboard side….”   It’s the very famous “We Wants The REDhead” from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in the Magic Kingdom.  Photo taken October 2005.

Well, there they are – my Disney Ladies in RED.   And there’s only one princess among them.  Hah!  I hope you enjoyed this Ruby Tuesday offering.  See ya real soon!

  1. What a great common thread to pull from all of these ladies! The Minnie and Mickey topiaries are gorgeous and I love that only one of the ladies is a princess!

  2. You have captured some of my daughter’s favorites…Ariel, Mulan and Mary Poppins! I finally convinced my daughter to watch Mary Poppins. What a spoonful of a great movie.
    Happy Ruby Tuesday.

  3. Loved this! I had an annual pass to Disney for about 25 years and this brings back tons of memories!

  4. Hmm you’re right. Doesn’t that mast head look remarkably male! Glad to see Mary Poppins in there [Oops my bias is showing.]

  5. I like the seemingly animated Mickey and Minnie topiaries. Are they dancing or is Mickey chasing Minnie??

  6. I love the Mickey and Minnie topiary best!!
    Great post! You’re going to New York on mid August?
    I”m going to London!

  7. OK – promise not to think poorly of me. Promise!?

    OK – the ‘we wants a red head’ shot went by me very quickly, I hit the scroll too fast, and as it went by I thought she was a real person! actually I thought she was a drag queen.

    The places my mind travels …

  8. Hmmm, to think Walt Disney was into ladies in red. Makes one wonder about all that stuff we’ve heard about how moralistic he was …


  9. These are all wonderful shots. I like the Mulan one too. But I like them all. Those bushes are pretty funny. Great shots all.

  10. Oh my Gosh, Tink! You’ve captured all the best RED stuff from Disney! Your photos are excellent! Happy Ruby Tuesday!

  11. Incredible!

    And just as I typed that, I thought of another ruby red lady…Mrs. Incredible! Although a Disney/Pixar character, she is a strong independant woman, for sure! 😉
