Celebrating a Disney Mother's Love

Where would we all be without our mothers’ love? Moms help guide us and teach us right from wrong. They are always there for us when we need some good advice or a warm hug. One day isn’t enough to pay tribute to our moms, so we’re celebrating all month long! We’ve seen so many good examples of a mother’s love in Disney movies and television shows over the years, we thought it would be fun to list some of our favorite Disney moms. Who do you think makes a great mom? Does your mother remind you of these moms?

Last Mother’s Day middle Disney Sister, Becky, was surprised by her son (and husband) with a family trip to Disneyland, her Happiest Place on Earth! Talk about celebrating a mother’s love!

This year for Mother’s Day all three Disney Sisters along with our mother were invited to the Disney Social Media Mom Celebration. One very special highlight of our week was attending Merida’s Royal Celebration. She was officially welcomed into the Disney Princess royal court when her proud mother Queen Elinor placed the crown on her head. What a magical mother-daughter moment indeed!

  • Kahara 2 of 25

    This mother lion raised the future King of the Jungle and taught him to be brave. Even though it took him awhile to face the truth, Simba had the courage to return to the pride lands and claim his place as King of the Jungle. What a proud mama she was,  and rightfully so! (The Lion King)

    Tale as old as time… This mom is extra sweet, no matter one lump or two.
