It’s true, if it wasn’t for Cinderella and The Little Mermaid, Disney would have been closed long time ago, Walt Disney put all his money on Cinderella, if it flopped in the box office it would have been the end of Disney, same goes with The Little Mermaid, both movies were a huge success, so huge that Cinderella helped Walt building Disneyland, and The Little Mermaid rose Disney from the Dark ages to the Renaissance.
EDIT : added Snow based on requests ;D
YES! This so much. Especially Snow though because I am so tired of hearing people talk about how she did nothing significant when there would be NO princesses without her! Sure, the ladies of the Renaissance have upped the standards for what it means to be part of the princess line up, but without Cindy and Snow there would be no standard to start with! (Same goes for Aurora, of course)— let’s never forget Walt’s Originals.
