Brave’s Princess Merida Has Started Showing Up At Disney Theme Parks

It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

Ok, so we joke around here at The Mary Sue that I look like Merida from Disney-Pixar’s Brave but I’m bouncing up and down with glee now that I’ve see the women Disney has chosen to play her at their theme parks. Here’s a video of one of them filmed at Epcot Center but soon, she’ll head to the Magic Kingdom. According to Orlando’s Attractions Magazine, ” In a couple of weeks she’ll start appearing in the Fairytale Garden in Fantasyland, where guests will engage in archery lessons and other activities until it’s their turn to meet her. Joining Merida will be the three bear cubs from the film, who will also interact with guests.” Hit the jump for yet another castmember taking on Merida. The hair, my god, the hair!

They both look fantastic but I’m sure there will be much more Disney fine tuning before they get to the big park. Either way, I need my picture with one. Because I am obviously still five-years-old inside.
