I love all things Disney.
From the moment my grandma took me to see my first film- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs- I was hooked.
I know that it’s supposedly commercial, but I can’t help but get caught up in the hype. And I enjoy it.
I’ve been to the original Disneyland in Los Angeles 3 times and I am sure I will be visiting again. I would also love to go to Disney World in Florida and maybe Disneyland Paris too.
The old traditional Disney Princesses like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Belle from Beauty and the Beast hold special memories from my childhood.
Ariel, The Little Mermaid, was my favourite as I love the ocean and the thought of being able to live under the sea.
There have been a few additions since then of Jasmine from Aladdin, Pocahontas, Rapunzel from Tangled, Mulan and some weird frog princess who I’ve never heard of, but the concept is still there- perhaps in a new age inclusive kind of way.
Brave teaches little girls to be strong, independent and in control, and I can’t really argue with that message that’s for sure.
Micky Mouse is an institution that has grown and adapted over time to include more animals and better animation. And what child growing up in the 80’s can forget Bambi, Lady and the Tramp and Tinkerbell from Peter Pan?
I’ve recently been introduced to the new Disney Princess for younger girls- Sofia the First- and I must say I’m impressed. It’s not too repetitive or hard to watch as a lot of kids shows can be, and they have cleverly tied in cameos from the fully grown Disney Princesses. The good fairies from Sleeping Beauty- Flora, Fauna and Merryweather are also in the series.
A lot of the newer movies made in collaboration with Pixar, such as Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Up are quite good, with jokes for adults as well as kids. The only one I’m not sure of is Frozen, but everywhere you look there is another child in an Elsa dress so who I am to argue with popular opinion?
Disneyfy me up I say!
