Just in case you're looking for a little royal #tbt to make you smile today, we're revisiting that time Princess Diana, Prince Harry and Prince William braved the Florida heat for a three-day trip to Disney World.

The early 90s were a tumultuous time for Princess Diana. 1992 saw Prince William's head injury, the death of Diana's father John Spencer from a heart attack and the passing of her longtime friend Adrian Ward-Jackson from an AIDs-related illness. The year also saw the release of the "Squidgygate" tapes, which includes an alleged phone conversation with James Gilbey, her separation from Prince Charles, while 1993 was filled the release of the "Camillagate" tapes.

Leading up to her retirement from public life, Princess Diana took then 11-year-old Prince William and 8-year-old Prince Harry for a fun-filled, dramatic-free vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth. Their August 1993 vacation did not include Prince Charles, but instead was joined by Di's closest friends Katie Menzies and Catherine Soames.

Diana reportedly rented out the entire 10th floor of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and later ventured out with her sons to the Magic Kingdom through "underground tunnels" with a private escort service. They eventually tested the theme park's famous rides, including Splash Mountain, Country Bear Jamboree and the Jungle Cruise.

Reported the Orlando Sentinel at the time of her visit, audiences lined up to catch a glimpse of the princess. ''One-hundred percent humidity and she still looks good,'' said one viewer. Others couldn't help but notice how relaxed Diana looked in the wake of her impending divorce and international media attention.

Photos show a smiling and ever-fashionable Princess of Wales sitting in the back row of the ride, while young Prince Harry and Prince William braved the front-row with a friend.

She "looked like a typical tourist walking around Disney World,'' reported the newspaper. ''She was relaxed.''
