8 Magical Disney Moments on <i>Once Upon a Time</i>

We were thrilled to see so many Disney moments on the Once Upon a Time season 4 premiere.  Not only did we finally get a glimpse of Anna, Elsa, and Krisotff, we were treated to some magical new Disney fairy tale moments featuring our favorite Storybrooke residents.

In honor of all this magical goodness, we've pulled together our 8 of our favorite Disney fairy tale moments from Once Upon a Time.


1) Prince Charming Awakens Snow White with True Love's Kiss

In the Once Upon a Time "Pilot," Prince Charming finds Snow White asleep in a glass casket, surrounded by her beloved dwarfs. True Love's kiss breaks the curse, just like in Walt Disney's 1937 groundbreaking film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.



2) Cinderella's Royal Wedding

In the season 1 episode "The Price of Gold," Cinderella and Prince Thomas share a fairytale wedding worthy of Disney's original Cinderella.



3) The Dwarfs Whistle "Heigh-Ho"

In the season 1 episode, "Dreamy," a new dwarf heads to the mines on his first day and learns to whistle while he works, just like the guys do in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.



4) Phillip and Aurora's Kiss Breaks the Sleeping Curse

In the season 2 episode "Broken," Prince Phillip kisses Aurora, breaking Maleficent's sleeping curse. It's a beautiful scene remniscent of Disney's 1959 animated gem, Sleeping Beauty.




5) Eric and Ariel's Romantic Dance

In the season 3 episode "Ariel," Snow White helps her mermaid friend Ariel attend her first royal ball — on land. Ariel spots Eric, the man she saved from the shipwreck, and the two share a wonderfully romantic dance worthy of Disney's The Little Mermaid.



6) Rumple and Belle's Beauty & the Beast Dance

In the season 4 episode "A Tale of Two Sisters, newlyweds Rumple and Belle celebrate their honeymoon by dancing to a song as old as time, just like the iconic moment in Disney's Beauty and the Beast.




7) "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall"

In the season 4 episode "A Tale of Two Sisters," Regina uses the magic words to destroy her enemy, just like the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.





8) Rumple Awakens the Sorcerer's Hat

In the season 4 episode, "A Tale of Two Sisters," Rumple uses the dagger to turn a mysterious box into the sorcerer's hat from Walt Disney's 194o animated masterpiece Fantasia. Careful, dearie...
