15 Hidden Details You Might've Missed In "Disney’s Enchanted"

One really fun thing to do while watching a Disney movie is look for Easter eggs and Enchanted is filled with them! This film pays tribute to several Disney masterpieces, and practically every frame contains an easter egg. If you're a big Disney fan, you've probably seen them all, right? Let us investigate!

#1. "Enchanted" is the story of Giselle, a young woman from Andalasia who gets sucked into the "real" world.

Giselle, played by Amy Adams, begins the film in an animated kingdom called Andalasia, straight out of a Disney movie. She's rescued by a handsome prince, Edward (played by James Marsden). But before they can live happily ever after, Giselle is sent to our world by Edward's evil stepmother, Queen Narissa, played by Susan Sarandon.
When Giselle makes it to our world, she meets Robert (Patrick Dempsey), his daughter Morgan (Rachel Covey), and Robert's girlfriend Nancy (Idina Menzel). Giselle and Robert each teach the other about falling in love, happy endings, and letting magic into your life.

#2. Giselle constructs her dream man, just like Aurora does in "Sleeping Beauty."

It's also similar to how Ariel plays around with the statue of Eric in "The Little Mermaid." Queens of manifesting, to be sure.

#3. The opening scene of the storybook echoes Disney classics like "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" and "Cinderella."

But in a modern twist, this storybook is a pop-up.

#4. Queen Narissa, played by Susan Sarandon, opens her drapes exactly like the Evil Queen in "Snow White."

This won't be the last direct parallel to the Evil Queen.

#5. When the two are set to tie the knot, their wedding carriage is a nod to Cinderella and Prince Charming's carriage.

However, Giselle's wedding day doesn't go exactly as planned.

#6. Queen Narissa's evil-hag look is a clear copy of the Evil Queen's in "Snow White."

Right down to the perfectly placed teeth.

#7. When Giselle looks at the diamonds, it's a mirror of a famous shot of Dopey in "Snow White."

Giselle is using the diamonds as potential eyes for her fake prince, while it's just another day at work for Dopey.

#8. Patrick Dempsey's character Robert Philip is named after Prince Philip in "Sleeping Beauty."

He was the only Disney prince with a name — sorry "Snow White" and "Cinderella" — for 30 years, until "The Little Mermaid" came out in 1989.

#9. Giselle spots a billboard for the Palace Casino. It's modeled after Cinderella's castle.

Cinderella's castle is at Disney World. Sleeping Beauty's castle is at Disneyland.

#10. Edward puts a shoe on Nancy and it's a perfect fit, just like in "Cinderella."

It's not a glass slipper — it's just a clear pump that Giselle left behind by accident.

#11. Robert's girlfriend Nancy Tremaine is played by Idina Menzel. Her name is a reference to Lady Tremaine in "Cinderella."

Thankfully for Robert's daughter Morgan, Nancy isn't an evil stepmother.

Six years after the release of this movie, Menzel became a Disney princess in her own right, playing Elsa in "Frozen."

#12. After Edward saves Giselle, they ride off into the sunset, just like in the final scene of "Snow White."

Riding off into the sunset and towards happily ever after is a Disney staple.

#13. "Happy Working Song" is an obvious nod to "Whistle While You Work" from "Snow White" and "The Work Song" from Cinderella.

Giselle also gets some help from the local wildlife, much like Cinderella and Snow White do.

Who knew pigeons could be so helpful?
The pigeons help again by providing Giselle with a towel later, just like the bluebirds do in "Cinderella."

#15. Narissa's dragon form is directly inspired by Maleficent's in "Sleeping Beauty."

Both are skinny with purple accents, and they are born from fire.
