Growing up and watching Disney meant that we all dreamt about Peter Pan coming in through our bedroom windows and taking us on a magical adventure through the night. Or is that just me? I always waited up that little bit longer, just hoping that, one day, he and Wendy would ask me to come along with them. It was always disappointing to wake up in the morning with no recollection of a late-night adventure.
Instead of that, maybe I should have done what this illustrator has been doing for the past couple of years. Luigi Volo is a designer from Naples who spends his time photoshopping our favorite Disney characters into photographs. And the results will make your hearts melt.
Here are some of the best ones. And I've even thrown in some non-Disney characters just to spice things up a little. Have fun!
1. Light it up.
via: InstagramWe're going to start off with this one because it's iconic. Don't smoke, kids.
2. Caught on the line.
via: InstagramI bet that wasn't a very successful shopping trip.
3. Bonding with Baloo.
via: InstagramThere's nothing better than sending some quality time with your besties, is there?
4. Blue is so not your color.
via: InstagramI would have done a "Sleeping Beauty" and gone for a pink dress instead.
5. Hawaiian adventures.
via: InstagramCan someone pass me a flower garland, please?
6. Down days.
via: InstagramEveryone has those down days.
7. "You've got a little something..."

via: InstagramI could sure use Hank's help every morning.
14. Triple the love.
via: InstgramImagine being able to adopt these little babies? I'd definitely volunteer to have all three.
15. Not exactly "Dancing in the Rain..."
via: InstagramGhibli, you might need a slightly bigger umbrella...
16. Don't cut yourself.
via: InstagramI can't imagine what would happen if The Beast was nicked with that blade...
17. Unlikely raft.
via: InstagramThat looks pretty comfy, if I do say so myself.
18. "That doesn't look like me..."
via: InstagramImagine waking up and finding that you've turned into an animation? Yeah, it would have been cool if I was six years old, but now, no thank you!
19. Light up my world.
via: InstagramWe all need a little help once in a while...
20. Portrait mode.
via: InstagramUm... I don't think Ariel's going to be happy about this one...
21. "Play with me!"
via: InstagramI know it's not real but don't even start me on how cute this is!
22. It's Krusty.
via: InstagramLuigi just wanted his boat back...
23. Monday mornings.
via: InstagramThe struggle is definitely real.
24. Cat and mouse chase.

via: InstagramA classic.
28. "5 more minutes..."
via: InstagramIt doesn't look like Merlin's going to let you sleep this one out.
29. A Cinderalla Story (2019).
via: InstagramIf Cinderella was re-made, this is probably what the plotline would consist of. We stan.
30. "Can someone turn the heating on?"
via: InstagramThere are downsides of being friends with Olaf...
31. "Giddy up!"
via: InstagramAndy took Woody with him to camp this time, so Luigi jumped in as a replacement.
32. A crowd of admirers.
via: InstagramThe entire family turned up to watch Luigi as he works on his latest designs.
33. Tied up.
via: InstagramHaving long hair really comes in handy...
34. Prince and the Frog.
via: InstagramWe're all for supporting unlikely couples.
35. The Dog Filter.
via: InstagramI'm loving that expression, Jaffar, really brings out your eyes.
36. A casual day out.
via: InstagramWhen Mowgli asked to hang out, I didn't think he meant it literally...
37. Raymond's treat.
via: InstagramWhen the world turns away, Raymond's always got your back.
38. Bedtime stories.
via: InstagramI love how Mike and Sully are acting the scenes out. It really brings the story to life for Boo.
39. A whizz in the kitchen.

42. "Run for it!"
via: InstagramThose things are vicious!
43. The Tree Lady.

44. Hakuna Matata.

45. Orville's here!
via: InstagramI mean, the least Luigi could do is look happy about it!
46. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
via: InstagramThey seem to follow him around everywhere!
47. Down under.

48. "Surprise!"Um... I think you'll have to get yourself another cup of coffee...
49. "I've got you."
via: InstagramBaloo's always got you back.

54. Snapped up!
via: InstagramTick-Tock loves a good Italian snack...
55. "Draw me like one of your French girls..."
via: InstagramLet's hope this one turns out better than Ariel's picture.
via: InstagramYeah, I bet you thought having a monkey as a pet would be a good idea until you realized just how tiring they are. Abu is very cute though!
57. Energy boost.
via: InstagramI'm sure Luigi could do with a shot of Espresso right now.
58. "Where do you think you're running off to?"
via: InstagramMaleficent isn't done with you yet, Luigi.
59. Fleshing out some ideas.
via: InstagramPinnocio and the gang seem very impressed with your work. So are we!
60. The border.
via: InstagramTrue friendships don't depend on the borders that separate us. Whether it be a fence or artistic barriers, Luigi has proved that none of that matters!
