Vanessa Williams Meets Merida at Disneyland Park

posted on May 29th, 2012 by George Savvas, Public Relations Director, Disneyland Resort

To celebrate her daughter’s twelfth birthday, Vanessa Williams brought her and some friends to Disneyland park. It happened to be the very first day that Merida, the adventurous heroine from the upcoming Disney•Pixar film “Brave,” was greeting guests in Fantasyland. While her daughter was practicing archery at this delightful new location near “it’s a small world,” Vanessa posed with Merida for this fun photo.

Can you remember Vanessa’s connection to another Disney film featuring a brave heroine?

Vanessa sang a version of “Colors of The Wind” from Pocahontas. :)
