Today, for our continuing #DisneyKids series, I want you to meet an adorable little princess named Giselle. Giselle loves coming to Walt Disney World Resort, especially if it means she can wear one of her Disney Princess dresses or even other costumes like Tinker Bell from “Peter Pan,” or Russell from “Up.”

Giselle’s magical Disney Parks experiences began last year when she made her first visit at the age of 4, wearing a dress that her mom, Kristina, made for the occasion. According to Kristina, Giselle, who has Down Syndrome, comes alive with happiness when interacting with Disney characters – creating moments that Kristina loves capturing on camera. Each time they plan a return visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Kristina creates new costumes for photos and fun.

Kristina eventually posted a few photos online and the popularity of the images grew so much that Giselle’s Walt Disney World Resort photos became an internet sensation. These days, you can Giselle’s latest magical adventure on Facebook at “Giselle’s Garden.”

Here’s a video from Giselle’s most recent visit when the family visited some favorite characters, including Merida from Disney•Pixar’sBrave,” Anna and Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen,” and, of course, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.


  • Thank You Disney for recognizing what a special little girl Giselle is. I follow her FB page and enjoy seeing her smile and interact with the princesses. Her parents are amazing people and truly see her for the unique treasure she is. A lot of non Disney people do not understand the MAGIC that is Disney. It allows a little girl to escape the day to day and become a princess for a day. Our lives and our kids are not perfect… But finding the joy in the imperfections is the key…

  • I love seeing Giselle’s Disney adventures! She’s the best dressed princess on the planet!

  • Phenomenal video.
