You have everything you need for your Thanksgiving feast: the turkey, cranberries, and stuffing. Now to sit and figure out who to invite over for Thanksgiving! No task is greater than putting together the invite list for Thanksgiving dinner. Sure Grandma and Grandpa are on the list, but what if you had just enough room for one more guest? A special Disney guest, perhaps?
Mickey and Minnie would be delightful to break bread with, but I have a list here of not-so-delightful Disney guests. Take a look at 10 Disney characters you don’t want over for Thanksgiving dinner.
RSVP for one? 1 of 11
Think twice before inviting these guests over for Thanksgiving dinner!
Giselle: The fashionista 2 of 11
Oh Giselle, so sweet and so innocent. If you decide to invite Giselle to your Thanksgiving feast, please make sure you talk to her about bringing her own clothes from home. If you remember in the movie Enchanted, Giselle makes the dress she's wearing in the picture from her host's curtains. The last thing you need is to have "dress-like" holes in your curtains this coming Thursday. Right?
Baloo: The freeloader 3 of 11
Inviting Baloo from the movie The Jungle Book, is a big no-no! All he does is think about food. He won't think to help with the dishes or take the trash out. He just wants to kick back and enjoy the feast that is set before him. He's a loveable bear, but can be a bit of a freeloader!
Harris, Hubert and Hamish: The pranksters 4 of 11
With all the stress from cooking a turkey with all the fixings, can you imagine Harris, Hubert and Hamish (Merida's younger brothers), in your home? Creating havoc! Stealing the pumpkin pies or sweet yams! Or worst yet, tying your husband's leg to the table and then having the whole table flip over when he tries to walk away, like what happened in Brave! I get chills just thinking about it.
Fauna: The overachiever 5 of 11
Do you ask your family to help with the cooking by bringing their favorite dish? We do that. This year, I get to bring desserts, and I am bringing pies. Thankfully, I am not like Fauna, one of the fairy godmothers in Sleeping Beauty; Fauna tried baking a cake from scratch, and well, look at that thing. Worst of all? You'll be pressured to try a bite not to be rude! I have my own bit of magic when it comes to desserts; it's called driving to my favorite restaurant and buying my pies!
The Clown: The guest that’s had one too many 6 of 11
So, I'm not suggesting you actually invite a clown over for your Thanksgiving feast, but if for some reason you decide to, don't invite one of the clowns from the movie Dumbo. By the end of dinner, he'll be asking you to pour some wine or cider into one of his clown shoes. I think it's best to maybe pass.
Huey, Dewey and Louie: The complainers 7 of 11
If you think having your family over for Thanksgiving is bad enough, can you imagine these four at your dinner table? Donald's sour attitude is bad enough, but if he has to bring his rambunctious nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie to your home? Well, good luck!
Winnie the Pooh: The sweet tooth 8 of 11
If you're planning on baking or cooking anything with sweet, delicious honey, well, then I'm almost certain you don't want to invite Winnie the Pooh. Just when you think your guest are ready for dessert, you just might find him snug as a bug, eating your delicious honey-inspired treats. He'll be all up in your honey, honey!
Elizabeth Swan: Miss "Manners"? 9 of 11
Do you remember the scene in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, when Elizabeth Swan was trying to have a classy dinner in front of Captain Barbosa? She was so hungry at the time that she left all class at the doorstep and stuffed her face. Now, can you imagine that same scene in front of your mother-in-law and grandma?
Sleepy: The snorer 10 of 11
Imagine your family in the middle of passing the cranberry sauce and you hear snoring coming from the other end of your table! Yes, it's Sleepy, one of the dwarfs from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. He gets into a food coma before he even has a bite of the turkey -- no use in blaming the trypotophan! How many times do you think you'll have to wake him up before sending him back home to his cottage?
Evil Queen: The really bad cook 11 of 11
First of all, I don't know why you would even consider inviting the Evil Queen, from the movie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, to your Thanksgiving dinner. But, whatever floats your turkey, is fine with me. Just be weary iff she offers to bring an apple pie! Yikes!
