12 Ways Disney Movies Prepared You For Life In Your 20's

1. Sleeping Beauty

On apartment/dorm life: Your living space will be worse before it can get better--Even Aurora had to live in a cottage before she got her castle.

2. Snow White

On roommates: Living with others is hard, especially if those "others" are 7 men with a variety of sleeping, medical, and mood issues.

3. Finding Nemo

On the importance of family: Although you may think your parents' advice is ridiculous, they really do know best, and they will do anything (including swim the entire ocean) for you

4. Toy Story

On friendship: Make new friends, but keep the old--College brings tons of new friendships, but don't throw out your old ones for something newer and shinier.

5. Mulan

On adversity: Challenges are inevitable in the future, but you grow and flourish by overcoming them.

6. Lion King

On regret: Learn from the past, but don't let it stop you from moving forward in the future.

7. Cinderella

On curfews: Even if you have the freedom to stay out as long as you want and go wherever you want, remember nothing good happens after midnight.

8. Beauty and the Beast

On stereotypes: Don't be too quick to judge based on appearance and always look for the good in people.

9. Frozen

On relationships:Sisters will always have your back. You don't always have to wait around on a man to save you

10. Pocahontas

On acceptance: Pocahontas taught us to be open to and accepting of other cultures. "But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you'll learn things you never knew you never knew."

11. Monsters Inc.

On insecurity: Everyone has different talents. Don't be disheartened if it takes you a while to find yours.

12. The Little Mermaid

On the future: Always follow your dreams, no matter how impossible they may seem
