What if Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Ariel, and Jasmine hung out in their own little girl group? The result would be the Disney Princess series, which brings the six heroines together for new learning adventures. In A Christmas of Enchantment, however, you don't get to watch the princesses in a fairy-tale holiday journey. You get to watch the princesses watch (make sense?) various stolen scenes from Beauty and the Beast: The Enchantment Christmas and Sleeping Beauty. (That scene where Aurora dances through the forest? They've Christmas-tized it by setting it to "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.") Throw in a couple classic cartoon shorts, a "Twelve Days of Christmas" sing-along, and bam! You've produced this DVD. If your child is in love with Disney princesses, best run out and buy the special edition of Cinderella instead of this re-packaged montage. - Ellen A. Kim.

The dvd opens with a beautiful grand entrance which the viewer is a part of. You take your seat in the grand theater and begin the journey with the Disney Princess' version of 12 Days of Christmas. You are then taken through several stories and songs in which the Princesses narrate, sprinkled with Old classic Disney Christmas cartoons. I did not find any of these cartoons inappropriate for my 5 year old. In fact, she watched them over and over again. It's sad to hear that the old cartoons are being labelled as filler or recycled material. Please remember that many of these Princesses are "old"! Disney tried to make it enjoyable for both the child and the parent, and the nostalgic cartoons were a great bonus.
One of my daughter's favorite parts of the dvd was the intermission. During the intermission, you are taken to a menu screen where you can choose a Princess to decorate a tree for. They give you choices for ornaments, tinsel and a tree topper based on the movie they appeared in. So not only are you decorating, but you are testing your Princess trivia skills. In the end, the trees glow and change color and the Princess whose tree was decorated sings a Christmas song for you.
The Princesses were very clearly a part of this dvd unlike what one reviewer says. They are the narrators and all of the games and activities are about them, and they do appear on the screen. Just watch the beginning of the dvd and you will see them in the grand theater as well as throughout the dvd itself. I am very disappointed that so many reviewers are being so hard on this dvd. My daughter and I both love it and have watched it over and over again. It will definitely be something that she will have a memory of watching each Christmas.
The "New Animation" is hard to explain, it's stiff, repetitive, and lifeless, although some of the cahracters original voices are here, others sound horrible, the voice of Snow White sounds like Fran Drescher with her nose welded shut and singing in a room full of helium. Meanwhile, the "New Songs" are played with scenes from each princesses movie.
Stories Include "the Steadfast Tin Soldier" - taken from Fantasia 2000
"Aurora's Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy"- which just uses Aurora's dancing from "Sleeping Beauty"- over and over and over-
"Belle's Enchanted Christmas" is justa condensed version of "Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas" but leaves out the villian, and most of the storyline.
"A Merry Mermaid Christmas" just has Ariel narrating "Ariel's Undersea Christmas"- which is a story that was available in a "Storybook with Tape" set in the early nineties-
The rest of the stories are either classic Diney cartoons, or music played out with scenes from Disney films.
It's sad that Disney would trade their integrity for a quick buck out of the pockets of little girls, Dinsey and Dinsey princess fans.
I would advise that if you HAVE to see this movie, borrow it from a friend, it;s not even worht the rental money. It's sad to see so many classic Dinsey characters cheapened by such a shotty release from a company that exudes creaticity and achievement. Unless you're a die hard Princess fan, or have to have every Disney DVD out there, don't even think about wasting the money, you'll only be hugely dissapointed.
