Disney Comes Out With a Line of Quinceañera Dresses

A quinceañera, sometimes called fiesta de quince años, fiesta de quinceañera, quince años or simply quince, is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday in parts of Latin America and elsewhere in communities of people from Latin America. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood.

And Disney has found a way to make mucho dinero off of the much celebrated occasion.

Disney  has come out with a line of quinceañera dresses inspired by Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Aurora, Snow White, and Tiana, with an additional dress that the company has named “La Corona De La Princesa” (The Princess’ Crown).  Most quiceañera gowns can be a little  bit gaudy, and Disney has definitely kept that tradition going with their Pocahontas and Snow White inspired dresses.

With prices ranging from $500 to close to $1,000, these dresses don’t come cheap. But anyone who’s been to a quinceañera knows that they can be the most elaborate parties ever and most parents, regardless of being rich or poor, spare no expense.  

Wepa. Disney. Get that money.

    It reminds me of the dresses on the UK TV show my big fat gipsy wedding.

    If my daughter ever wanted to wear such a dress I’d have no other choice but to disown her. Well I don’t have a daughter.

    This is just evil. Disney is the devil incarnate.

    I think it’s cute. Their target audience is 15-year-olds, what do you expect? Big, poofy and a bit too much is what 15 is all about! I don’t love Disney, necessarily, but they’re smart to pick up on this sales opportunity. Far be it for me to hate on a 15-year-old’s choice in quinceanera gowns. It’s supposed to be fun. And I know my 15-year-old self would have LOVED the opportunity to get dolled up in a big stupid dress and have a special party celebrating ME!

    Rock on, ladies. I’m not mad.

    Disney is trying to make that money. They know there’s a lot of new Hispanic people, so they’re trying to find more ways to get their money. Take a cheaply made dress, slap a “Disney” label on it, BAM $1000.

    Are these really that more expensive than the normal, non-Disney quinceañera dresses?

    Did Disney forget its own storylines? When the hell did Snow White and Pocahontas wear these colors?
