Go To

Disney Princess: Enchanted Journey is a Disney Princess Video Game, released on October 16th, 2007 for PlayStation 2, October 30th, 2007 for the Wii, and on November 27th, 2007 for the PC.

One day, a young girl discovers a pixie in a forest. The pixie leads her to an abandoned, beautiful castle, where she discovers the realms of the Disney Princesses—and also discovers that the realms are in danger due to mischievous creatures called Bogs, who are causing havoc in each of the lands and stealing their time, color, sound, and trust.

In order to become a true princess and save the kingdom of Gentlehaven, the girl must save the Disney worlds one by one with the help of her magic wand. With the power of the wand, she can turn the Bogs into butterflies and undo what their magic has done.

Featured princesses are Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Jasmine from Aladdin, Cinderella from Cinderella, and Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Belle from Beauty and the Beast is also seen in a bonus world unlocked with passwords, or after clearing the game.

Other games in the series include Disney Princess, Disney Princess: Magical Jewels and Disney Princess: My Fairytale Adventure.

This game contains examples of:

  • Action Girl: Your character singlehandedly saves the princess worlds with her magic wand.
  • All There in the Manual: The manual elaborates on the story and reveals the Big Bad, while the game doesn't tell you there is one until the final battle.
  • Always Night: Cinderella's world is stuck in time just before midnight.
  • Anime Hair: Zara's hair is styled into two points like princess hats, and those points have her hair spiraling to the top, where they taper off into two lengths of hair per point. It's easier to see than describe.
  • Big Bad: Zara, who commands the Bogs that have taken over the princess worlds.
  • Bleak Level: Cinderella's world has shades of this; it's Always Night, most of the colors are a muted blue, time is frozen everywhere, there's a creepy forest to traverse, you go to her old home, which is deserted, and at one point the Bogs freeze Cinderella herself, making it the only point where they directly attack a princess. The level even starts with the Bogs freezing Jaq and Gus.
  • Bonus Level: Belle's world is a short mini-game world accessed after the main story is complete, and beating it unlocks the Golden Set outfit.
  • Bright Castle: Gentlehaven Castle, which is abandoned due to a curse. After you beat the final boss, it's restored to its former glory.
  • Charged Attack: Holding down the magic button will let you cast a powerful area attack.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Fish Bogs are the only ones not to appear in the final battle.
  • Clock Tower: Chapter 3 of Cinderella's world revolves around fixing the clock tower to restore time.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Snow White's world revolves around color-changing puzzles, with red, blue, and green highlighted.
  • Coloring in the World: Snow White’s world is built around color which was removed and you have to return it back.
  • Cutscene Incompetence: In the final boss fight, your character just stands there in the cutscenes as the Bogs attack her.
  • Dark Action Girl: Zara commands the Bogs and possesses evil magic of her own.
  • Deliberately Monochrome: The Bogs drain color from Snow White's world, causing this.
  • Demoted to Extra: Belle and her world are only seen for a short game of tag accessed after the story is complete.
  • Disappears into Light: This happens after the final battle with Zara, where the player holds her hand and a flash of light covers the screen.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": The Pixie is only referred to as a Pixie and doesn't have a proper name.
  • Diegetic Character Creation: Your character arrives at the Gentlehaven castle entirely concealed under a cloak. Once inside, the pixie suggests changing her clothes. This leads to a customization sequence where you not only choose the little girl's clothes, but her general appearance.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: The game probably wasn't originally meant for more than one player, as most of the cutscenes only use Player 1's character while Player 2's character stands off to the side or is not used at all, generating this response.
  • Escort Mission: The player has to help Jaq and Gus in Cinderella's world, and Abu in Jasmine's world. Luckily, nothing bad can happen to them if the Bogs reach them.
  • Excessive Evil Eyeshadow: Zara wears excessive blue eyeshadow to accentuate her villainy.
  • Exposition Fairy: The pixie explains what's going on and often gives you advice.

  • Gold Makes Everything Shiny: The bonus outfits from Belle's world are shiny and golden, and once you complete the princess worlds, their outfits and portraits become golden as well.
  • The Goomba: Basic Bogs, who have no special attributes and are defeated very easily.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After you clear the game, the Bogs remaining in Belle's world have become friendly and play a game of tag.
  • High Collar of Doom: Seen on Zara, who wears a blue high collar.
  • Hub Level: Gentlehaven Castle is this, and the rooms with portals to the realms are "previews" to the realm they are going to.
  • If I Can't Have You…: Non-romantic example; this is Zara's motivation for being evil and attacking the princess worlds.
    If I can't be a princess why should anyone else get to be one?
  • Interface Screw: Paintbrush Bogs can make the entire screen monochrome, and Clockwork Bogs slow everything and turn the screen green.
