Whether you feel that stars are the great lion kings of the past looking down on us, balls of gas burning billions of miles away, or actually just fireflies, we can all agree that they make the nighttime sky magical. These sparkly dots shimmer and shine, bringing us feelings of hope and wonder as we gaze upon them. And when we see an especially bright celestial orb, we feel inspired to make a wish, just as some of our favorite Disney characters do! In honor of these diamonds in the sky, we’d like you to choose a Disney star to wish upon. Your choice will reflect the Disney quote you need to hear right now to help make your wish come true! Go ahead and give it a try:
Choose a Disney star or cluster of stars to wish upon:
You picked the evening star from The Princess and the Frog!
As you wish upon this evening star, remember that: “Fairy tales can come true. You gotta make ‘em happen. It all depends on you.” Like Tiana, we agree that dreams really do come true, but you can’t only wish upon a star. You also have to put in lots of hard work. Now go out there and achieve those dreams!
You picked the star from Pinocchio!
Star light, star bright, this is the quote you need tonight: “Always let your conscience be your guide.” Thanks, Blue Fairy. It’s a good idea to listen to what our instincts and moral compasses are telling us. And as Pinocchio found out, honesty is always the best policy.
You picked the star from Peter Pan!
From the second star to the right and straight on till morning, we bestow upon you these words from Peter Pan himself: “Now, think of the happiest things. It’s the same as having wings.” When you stay positive, magical things can happen!
You picked the stars from Fantasia!
Fantasia is a Disney classic, so we think you should hear a quote from Walt Disney himself: “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” Don’t just talk about your dreams, go out there and make them come true! You can make the impossible possible.
You picked the stars from The Lion King!
The kings of the past are looking down on you from the these stars, reminding you of Rafiki’s advice: “The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it or learn from it.” Also, “Asante sana squash banana!” Now go live your best life remembering to stay true to who you are!
You picked the stars from Aladdin!
Thanks to your shining, shimmering, and splendid choice in these stars, you need to hear the following wise words: “Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.” Truth.
You picked the stars from Frozen!
The stars from a Northern Lights-filled sky have brought you this quote from Olaf that we’re sure these love-expert trolls would totally agree with: “Love is putting someone else’s needs before yours.” Now go give someone a warm hug!
You picked the stars from Hercules!
May this heroic constellation remind you of Zeus’ words that: “A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.” Legendary advice from a legendary character.
You picked the stars from Beauty and the Beast!
From the tale as old as time, you need to hear this enchanting quote: “She warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.” Now go have adventures in the great wide somewhere, and remember not to judge a book by its cover!
You picked the stars from Moana!
These ancient stars are here to remind you of Gramma Tala’s lyrics from “Where You Are”: “You may hear a voice inside. And if the voice starts to whisper to follow the farthest star, Moana, that voice inside is who you are.” We heart Gramma Tala so much, and her words to Moana are words to live by. Listen to your instincts, and follow your own star!
You picked the stars from The Little Mermaid!
These stars above the sea would like to remind you that: “The seaweed is always greener in somebody else’s lake.” We can thank Sebastian for that pearl of wisdom. Try to see how green the seaweed is right where you are!
You picked the stars from Sleeping Beauty!
Aurora’s thoughts are just what you need right now: “They say if you dream a thing more than once, it’s sure to come true…” So keep on dreaming, visualize what you want, and stay focused on your goals!
You picked the star from The Rescuers!
We’ve come to the rescue with these hopeful words from Rufus the cat: “Faith is a bluebird you see from far. It’s for real and as sure as the first evening star. You can’t touch it, or buy it, or wrap it up tight, but it’s there just the same, making things turn out right.” It’s so good, we’re getting all the feels.
