YMMV: Sofia the First
  • Incest Yay Shipping/Toy Ship: Sofia tends to be shipped with ether James or Amber.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Just the idea of summoning past Disney Princesses may seem familiar to some.
  • Jerkass Woobie:
    • Amber in the pilot movie.
    • Cedric in the TV show. Really doesn't help that Sofia is the only one who treats him with respect.
  • Periphery Demographic: A surprising number of viewers are much older than the regular Disney Junior crowd.
  • So Okay, It's Average: Many of the older set viewers admit it's a good cartoon, but could reach better levels if the writers didn't hold back so much.
  • Stop Helping Me!: When Sofia went hiking with her fellow buttercup scouts, King Roland was afraid she'd get hurt and ordered Baileywick to go along. Baileywick insisted in doing things for her, which made her lose several chances of earning merit badges. And she was just one away from winning a sunflower pin.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song:
    • "Rise and Shine" sounds very similar to "When Will My Life Begin" from Tangled on some notes.
    • The end of "A Little Bit of Food" has a few notes that sounds like the beginning of a Wheel of Fortune puzzle. Make of that what you will...
  • Uncanny Valley: The character designs can look a bit creepy at times.
    • In particular, the ones that try to look more realistic than stylized and cartoony... such as Meg and Peg in "The Buttercups".
  • Unfortunate Implications: Cinderella's song "True Sisters" implies that she blames herself for the abuse she endured from her stepfamily.
  • What an Idiot: Sure, Cedric, give Sofia a spell that will make everyone go to sleep in the ballroom while you're in there as well. What could possibly go wrong?
    • Also counts as Didn't Think This Through.
    • Even knowing the amulet curses users as punishment for bad deeds, Cedric isn't worried about it happening to him if he ever gets it.
