Disney tag

As I was browsing through different blogs I came across a Disney tag on the lovely EarsAndDoleWhip’s blog. Now what blogger can resist a tag? Especially when it’s about the magic that is Disney!

  1. Favourite scene in a princess movie? This one has changed over the years, it used to be the Kiss the Girl scene in the Little Mermaid but now nothing will ever beat the lantern scene in Tangled, absolutely stunning animation
  2. Last Disney movie you watched? When I watch Disney films I usually have a binge and watch a few but I believe that the last one I watched was 101 Dalmatians or Lilo & Stitch
  3. Is your family Disney obsessed? I wouldn’t go as far as to say they don’t like Disney but lets just say I wear the ears in my family (if you pardon the pun)
  4. How many times have you visited the Parks? I have been to DisneyWorld once and DisneyLand about 3 times I believe but, if the saving goes to plan, I will hopefully be back in the parks next year.
  5. Which Park is your favourite? Out of the ones I have visited I believe that DisneyWorld is the best because it has more parks and therefore more places to experience the magic but I have heard California is meant to be great.
  6. Cinderella’s Castle or Sleeping Beauty’s Castle? I would have to go with Sleeping Beauty’s castle simply because it appears in my favourite opening Disney film sequence.
  7. Favourite animal-themed movie? If it counts then I would say the Winnie the Pooh movies because Eeyore is a favourite of mine but I also have a close connection to Dumbo because it is the first Disney film I ever remember watching. (and the lion king because the songs are unbeatable and lilo & stitch and there are just too many!)
  8. Would you get married/have your honeymoon in the Parks? Not that I wouldn’t do either but personally I would love my first experience of Disney, with my future husband, to be when I bring my children to the parks for the first time.
  9. If you could date one of the characters, who would it be and why? I have always had a crush on Prince Eric, call me what you want but he is dreamy and you cannot deny that!
  10. Favourite villain? This is a running thing in my family because when Ursula becomes human she is called Vanessa, which coincidently is my mums name so I think that, and her sass regarding body language, will always make Ursula my favourite villain.
  11. If you could have two characters from two different movies meet, who would they be and why? I would have Tiana from the princess and the frog meet up with Gaston because I feel like she would put him in his place
  12. Have you ever met any of the characters at the Parks? Even though I don’t explicitly remember meeting any characters as I was always really young when we went to the park I do have 2 full autograph books that evidence I did meet quite a few! You can be sure though that next time I go to the parks I will be meeting as many as I can again.
  13. Favourite live-action Disney movie? The live action jungle book is just simply beautiful but Mary Poppins will always be my favourite classic live action Disney film because Dick Van Dyke is just wonderful!
  14. Mickey or Minnie? Thats like asking tea or biscuits? Both are good on their own but only really work together!
  15. Which Disney movie is overrated?  Maybe its because I missed the opportunity to dress up like Elsa in my every day life (like I would as a child) but I do feel that Frozen was over-hyped slightly.
  16. Favourite Pixar movie? Up or Monsters Inc, both make me cry uncontrollably!
  17. Favourite sidekick? This is a tough one because there are so many good ones but I would say either the Genie from Aladdin or Maximus from Tangled.
  18. Favourite Disney movie and why? I am going to have to go with Hercules. It has catchy songs, a hilarious villain, a leading lady that can stand on her own 2 feet and a sassy goat…what more could you want!

So there we have it! I would love to know your answers so if you do the tag be sure to leave a link to it below. Time to go put on a Hercules and remember why I love it as much as I do!

Disney first-time bucket list

bucket listI would be lying to you if I said I have never been lucky enough to go to Disney World but what I will say is I have never wanted to go back so much in my life. Last time I went I was around 9 years old and even though I enjoyed it I don’t feel like I got the fullest Disney experience out of it. I may have gained a slight obsession with Disneyland since then and through countless blogs and vlogs have realised that there are so many aspects to it other than just the rides and meet-and-greets (even though they are still just as important). Therefore in preparation for the next time I am lucky enough to visit I have put together a list of all the must do things when in Disneyworld…

  1. TAKE A PHOTO IN FRONT OF ONE OF THE ICONIC LANDMARKS Disneyworld is made up of 4 main parks (Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios) which are hard to do all in one day so wherever you are take a photo in front of one of the main landmarks like Cinderella’s castle or the tree of life
  2. MEET A DISNEY PRINCESS Whichever princess you have decided is your favourite (mine is Rapunzel) try and get a photo with them! If you’re not a princess person that don’t be put off just trade out princess for whoever your favourite character may be.
  3. GO TO A CHARACTER MEAL This one I realise is quite an expensive option and often has to be booked in advance but what better way to interact and take photos with your favourite characters than over a delicious meal! Personally I want to go to The Crystal Palace to have breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and friends.
  4. TRADE A PIN Now pin trading is something that I didn’t even know existed last time I went to the park and in a way I can see why as some pins reach up to $60 when bought in the park. It is still however something that I really want to take part in and I think will be a great memory so an insider tip I have learnt is to go to your local disney store and buy a few pins from there initially that are cheaper and you can then trade when you’re in the park with other visitors and park employees.
  5. WATCH A SHOW OR THE FIREWORKS I think this one may be the most important for me as Disney is renowned for putting on a good show. Some of the most highly recommended were the Welcome Show, Fantasmic and the fireworks at either Epcot or the Magic Kingdom.
  6. TRY SOME EXCLUSIVE DISNEY TREATS This one all depends on your taste but I have heard that a dole whip is something you have to try! If you want to stay closer to your comfort zone why not try a tasty treat in the shape of Mickey mouse like a waffle.
  7. WATCH A PARADE This one speaks for itself really but what better way to see all of your favourite characters than have them float past you to the beat of a good-old Disney tune.
  8. RIDE IT’S A SMALL WORLD This one may just be on here for nostalgic reasons as I remember dragging my Grandma repeatedly on this ride but I think it has just become a classic part of Disneyworld!
  9. WATCH A MOVIE UNDER THE STARS I was debating wether or not to put this one in as I don’t think it is considered as one of the must-dos in Disneyworld. BUT the key reason why I imagine you want to go to Disneyworld is because you fell in love with the Disney films so what better to remind you of that than to watch a classic under the stars in the place where all the magic really does come to life.
  10. TAKE A FUNNY PHOTO ON A RIDE Whether you’re a thrill seeker and wants to take on the mighty Space Mountain or battling it out on Buzz Lightyear be sure to pull a funny pose for the camera to keep as a memory of your time there.

 

One last suggestion I have (that isn’t really a thing to do but more a thing to get) is to invest in the memory maker, all of your photos throughout your time at the park will be sent to you digitally which means you can enjoy your time completely knowing that all of your photos are taken care of.

Although it may be impossible to do all of these things in one visit it just gives you more of a reason to go back when you can

Let me know if you would like another one of these for each of the other Disney Parks 🙂
