I'm not sure if I have ever mentioned it here, but I am a HUGE Disney fan! In fact the very first movie that I saw in a movie theater (that I can remember!) was The Little Mermaid. I fell in love and never looked back. I had to watch everything Disney! I was relentless. When I was little you could always find me impatiently waiting to watch the Mickey Mouse Club on TV. Even the older black and white version!
Here we have a tribute to my 9th birthday. It was 1990. I'm sporting my
stylish Minnie Mouse shirt.
Oh my! Was I a dorky kid or what?! Who gives themselves bunny ears?? I should try to re-create this picture...but anyways. As I grew, my love for all things Disney grew. Anytime a Disney movie came out in theaters I had to go. Once I was old enough to go to Disneyland with just my friends, you bet I had a year pass with the least amount of black-out days!
Here we have myself and my best friend Jamie. It's 1995 and Toon Town was brand new!
Look how cute 'gansta' Eeka is! HA! Funny thing though, I did end up in Disney jail once, but we can talk about that another time! Moving on....
As you can imagine I love all things Disney and here is my list of my top 10 ALL TIME favorite Disney movies:
9. Lilo & Stitch
7. Beauty & The Beast
3. The Little Mermaid
That list is always changing I feel. And don't get me wrong I pretty much love them all! I know Star Wars is now apart of Disney now, but it will always be a separate category to me. Though it is very exciting to have two of my favorite fandoms merge.
My very first favorite Disney Princess was Ariel. We have a lot in common, except I'm not a mermaid, or a princess, or married to a prince...ha ha! Okay so maybe just the part about being raised by her dad and having a yearning to be in a world that is different from the one I was in. I never felt like I fit in. I still don't! I loved that she wasn't afraid to do what she needed to do to be with the one she was in love with, though as an adult when I look at it now, I'm like wow that's a weird story! I also read the original Hans Christian Andersen tale, and that's even worse!
Fast forward to today and Tangled has become my favorite! Moana is right behind. Rapunzel and I have so much in common! Except I wasn't kidnapped as a child, and I'm not a Princess, nor did I grow up in a tower! I did have a lizard as a pet, befriended a bunch of rough-ians, and been on more adventures than I can count! Unfortunately my hair does not have magical properties, though It's been many magical colors!
Here are some of my favorite Disney movie moments:
Do you love Disney? I would love to hear about it!
