Disney+ Marathon Day 7 | November 18

8:30am – Rise & shine! 🌞

9:30am – Breakfast + Hanging out in my brother’s room 🍳

2:40pm – Blogging + Now You See It 💻 

4:15pm – Bath + Now You See It 🛀 

The “final battle” between Danny & Max is unbelievably cheesy, leaning towards the bad side of the line. But, I still have a special place in my heart for this movie because the concept is cool, & I’ve been in love with Johnny Pacar since Junior High. 🎩

6pm – Blogging + The Princess and the Frog 💻 

I didn’t like this movie the 1st time around, but I’m giving it a 2nd chance because everyone else seems to like it. I really want to like it! 🐸

👁 Spotted: Two easter eggs! Right before the title appears, you can see a woman cleaning the Magic Carpet from Aladdin on her balcony. There is a float in the Mardi Gras parade near the end of the movie that resembles King Triton from The Little Mermaid. Why those two films?? All three have the same co-directors: John Musker & Ron Clements. 🎥🍿

Update: I am so confused. I didn’t love it the 1st time around because jazz music & New Orleans culture aren’t really my thing. This time around, none of those things bothered me in the slightest. I must’ve not been in the mood before because I’m definitely part of the fan club now. I even teared up during THAT scene! 💚

8pm – Blogging + That’s So Raven 💻 

S1E1 – Mother Dearest

Still know EVERY SINGLE LYRIC in the theme song. Classic! 🎵

S1E2 – Test of Friendship

I grew up with ICONIC trios on Disney Channel: Chelsea, Eddie, & Raven. Gordo, Lizzie, & Miranda. Huey, Dewey, & Louie. Joe, Kevin, & Nick. Kim, Ron, & Rufus. Lilly, Miley, & Oliver. Just to name a few! 🎉

S1E3 – Party Animal

At the end of the episode when the snake is in bed with Mr. & Mrs. Baxter, you can see Rondell Sheridan starting to smile. I love when actors break! 😆

S1E4 – Wake Up Victor

S1E5 – A Fish Called Raven

👁 Spotted: Spencer Redford from Pixel Perfect as an annoying school reporter


S1E6 – Smell of Victory

Final thoughts for the day: Since I got a late start, 2 movies & 6 episodes is pretty darn good. Especially when you throw in the time I devoted to emptying my DVR to make room for HALLMARK CHRISTMAS MOVIES. 🎄 Since today is day 7, let’s wrap up week 1 of my 30-day Disney+ marathon. The streaming service itself is still experiencing a few bugs. The controls are not always responsive on my iPad; sometime I have to shut down the app & restart it because the blue circle won’t stop spinning; & random things will happen every now & again like my watchlist having every movie & show appear twice. All that being said, I’ve been able to use the app every day for one week. My week 1 totals are 12 movies & 56 episodes. Can’t wait to dive into week 2. See you tomorrow! 👋

I will leave you with this sneak peek at the NEW Lizzie McGuire show:

My Disney & Pixar Bracket

It’s been awhile since we last talked so why not do something that will likely rip us apart. 😂 We are in the midst of March Madness so naturally a Disney bracket is making the rounds on social media. I have very strong opinions when it comes to all things Mickey Mouse, but it was extremely difficult to make these “life-altering” decisions. I felt like I was choosing between children. I allow me to walk you through each category so I can relive the pain.

Brave vs Up – This was hard because I really like both movies, but I had to listen to my wee Scottish heart. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇬🇧

Toy Story vs Toy Story 2 – I absolutely adore this entire trilogy so my answer to this category is WHY WOULD YOU MAKE ME CHOOSE?!? In the end, I went with Toy Story because it’s the classic that started it all.

Cars 3 vs Coco – I haven’t seen either, but I went with Cars 3 because it’s the only one I’m interested in.

The Good Dinosaur vs Toy Story 3The Good Dinosaur is good, but it never had a chance against Toy Story 3 which makes me weep with little more than a thought.

A Bug’s Life vs Ratatouille – This is another tough choice. I would drop everything & watch either right now. I ultimately went with A Bug’s Life because I’ve always loved the concept & characters . . . which is also true about Ratatouille. UGH!!

Inside Out vs Finding Nemo – Why has Pixar made so many great movies?? 😡 I chose Inside Out, but both reduce me to tears so it could be a different answer on a different day.

Cars vs Monsters, Inc.Cars is really good, but Monsters, Inc. is my favorite Pixar movie so this choice was easy.

The Incredibles vs Wall • E – I’ve never seen Wall • E so The Incredibles won by default, but I probably would’ve chosen it anyway.

Right side is complete! Moving on . . . to the left, to the left!! ⬅️ ⬅️ 😂

The Lion King vs TarzanI love The Lion King, but I chose Tarzan because it’s my favorite Disney movie. Duh!

Lilo & Stitch vs The Princess and the Frog – I chose Lilo & Stitch because it’s in my Disney top 10. Also, I’m not a big fan of The Princess And The Frog. Sorry (but not really).

Tangled vs Big Hero 6 – I’ve seen Big Hero 6 once, and it was okay but not very memorable. Tangled, however, is amazing. Flynn Rider has my heart. 💘

Frozen vs Moana – Frozen wins by default because *gasp* I haven’t seen Moana. 😭

Aladdin vs Hercules – My babies!! This category ripped my heart out of my chest, broke it, & stuffed it back into my body so I could relive the pain all over again. 💔 The only reason I was able to make a decision is because I have a set Disney trinity: Tarzan, Aladdin, & Hercules. That being said, Aladdin is pretty much interchangeable with Hercules.

The Little Mermaid vs Pocahontas – Ariel was one of my favorite princesses growing up but not so much anymore. These days Pocahontas is #3 behind Mulan & Jasmine therefore her movie wins this battle & my heart. 🍂 🍃 🍂 🍃 🍂 🍃

Mulan vs Zootopia – I love Zootopia, but as I’ve already mentioned Mulan is my favorite princess. 💚

Beauty & The Beast vs The Nightmare Before Christmas – I’ve tried to get into Nightmare Before Christmas, but it just isn’t happening. Beauty And The Beast will always hold a special place in my heart. 🌹

The time has come to choose between Tarzan, my favorite Disney movie, & Monsters Inc., my favorite Pixar film. I love both, but the choice is easy . . .

Disney Challenge

Disney Challenge Thumbnail

Me and my best friend Gabby did the Disney challenge featuring songs from “Frozen”, “Jungle Book”, “Lilo & Stitch”, “Lion King”, “Little Mermaid”, “Mulan”, “Pocahontas”, “Princess and the Frog”, “Shrek 2”, “Tangled”, and “Tarzan.”  Warning!  The following video features A LOT of dramatic lip synching and laughter.

If you would like to do this challenge, here are the rules:

1. At least two players are required plus someone to play the songs and keep score.  We did not have a third person so I used the Pandora app on my phone.  I put a towel over the top half of my phone where the songs were displayed and did the manual work myself (playing, pausing, etc).  Gabby kept score on her phone.

2. Each person has ten seconds to guess the title of a song (One Point) and what Disney movie it comes from (One Point).  After time is up, the other person can take a guess and try to steal the points.  Each round can earn a player 0, 1, or 2 points.

3.  The person with the most points at the end of the game wins.  Me and Gabby ended the game after ten songs.

I hope you enjoyed the video!  Film your own version.  It’s a lot of fun!!

Stay tuned for more posts coming soon.  Stay young at heart readers!  :)
