Disney+ Marathon Day 15 | November 26

10am – Rise & shine! 🌞

10:45am – Filming + The Parent Trap (1961) 📷 

👁 Spotted: Hayley Mills | She starred in 5 other Disney films: In Search of the Castaways, Pollyanna, Summer Magic, The Moon-Spinners ( a favorite of mine!), & . . .

1pm – Blogging + That Darn Cat! 💻 

🎞 This is it! Hayley Mills’ 6th Disney movie 🎞

👁 Spotted: Dean Jones | His other Disney projects are Blackbeard’s Ghost, Monkeys Go Home!, Snowball Express, The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit, The Love Bug franchise, The Million Dollar Duck, The Shaggy D.A., & The Ugly Dachshund

This was my 1st time watching this movie, & it was really cute. Not a new favorite, but I would watch it again. 😊

3:45pm – Blogging + The Parent Trap (1998) 💻 

👁 Spotted: Lindsay Lohan | She is in 4 other Disney movies: Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, Freaky Friday, Herbie Fully Loaded, & . . .

Fun Fact: Joanna Barnes played the twins’ dad’s fiancé Vicky in the 1961 version. In the 1998 version, Joanna returned as the fiancé Meredith’s mother; she tells the twins to call her Aunt Vicky. Get it?? 😉

Another Fun Fact: In the 1961 version, the twins do a duet of Let’s Get Together. In the 1998 version, Hallie hums it while walking toward the hotel elevator. 🎶

7:20pm – Filming + Get a Clue 📷 

🎞 This is it! Lindsay Lohan’s 5th Disney movie. 🎞

👁 Spotted: Brenda Song | She’s cameoed & starred in several other Disney projects: American Dragon: Jake Long, Amphibia, College Road Trip, Miles From Tomorrowland, Phil of the Future, Phineas & Ferb, Stuck in the Suburbs, That’s So Raven, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, The Suite Life on Deck, The Suite Life Movie, The Ultimate Christmas Present, & Wendy Wu; Homecoming Warrior.

Final thoughts for the day: If you asked me to pick my favorite version of The Parent Trap, I would have to unfriend you. I love both equally! I seriously can’t pick just one. 😭 It was fun spending the day with Hayley Mills & Lindsay Lohan. See you tomorrow for day 16! 👍

*Note: Yesterday was the end of week 2, but today is the true halfway point. 15 days down, 15 days to go! 📺

Disney+ Marathon Day 14 | November 25

11am – Rise & shine! 🌞

11:20am – Laundry 🧺

11:45am – Shower 🚿

12:20pm – Blogging + Home on the Range 💻 

👂 Heard: Estelle Harris as Audrey the Chicken | She also played Mrs. Potato Head in the Toy Story franchise, Mrs. Turtle on Mickey Mouse Works & House of Mouse, Muriel on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, and Old Lady Bear in Brother Bear. She cameoed on Dave the Barbarian, Disney’s Hercules: The Animated Series, Kim Possible, Phil of the Future, Sonny With a ChanceThe Proud Family, and Timon & Pumbaa.

👂 Heard: Dame Judi Dench as Mrs. Caloway | I’m mentioning her just because she’s a QUEEN, but for the sake of Disney connection continuity, she cameoed in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

👂 Heard: Jennifer Tilly as Grace | She also voiced Celia Mae in Monsters, Inc.

👂 Heard: Patrick Warburton as Patrick | He also voiced Kronk in Emperor’s New Groove, Emperor’s New School, & Kronk’s New Groove

👂 Heard: Steve Buscemi as Wesley | He also voiced Randall Boggs in Monsters, Inc & Monsters University.

I can see why this movie divided critics. It’s definitely not Disney’s best product, & the animation isn’t perfect. However, the characters are endearing, & the animation looked nice for most of the movie, like a Little Golden Book come to life. I also liked the music & loved hearing so many familiar voices. At the very least, it was a pleasant trip down memory lane. 💕 Call me crazy, but I would watch a TV show that revisited Patch of Heaven with Grace, Maggie,  Mrs. Caloway, & the rest of their animal friends. 🐓 🐄 🐐 🐎 🐖

5:30pm – Work 🛍

Final thoughts for the day: Unfortunately I didn’t have a great day. I dreaded work all morning & afternoon. I was nauseous during my entire shift  & felt like I could throw up at any moment. 🤢 I feel a little better now, but I’m exhausted & not looking forward to my workload tomorrow. Hopefully I can sneak in more Disney+ to make myself feel better! 🥰

*Note: I was too tired to remember & acknowledge the end of week 2 so  here’s a reminder. We’re doing great! 🎉

Disney+ Marathon Day 10 | November 21

8:40am – Rise & shine! 🌞

9:30am – Breakfast + The Little Mermaid series 🍳 

S1E1 – The Great Sebastian

👑 One princess . . .

👂 Heard: Jim Cummings as Emperor Sharga

10am – Blogging + The Little Mermaid series 💻 

S1E2 – Stormy

Um . . . I want to ride a purple seahorse! 💜

S1E3 – Urchin

👂 Heard: Jim Cummings as Crab Louie. If you haven’t already guessed, he’s Disney voice acting royalty. A few of his starring roles: Bonkers D. Bobcat, Darkwing Duck, Pete, Tigger, & Winnie the Pooh

11am – Blogging + Crikey! It’s the Irwins 💻 

GASP! I cheated on Disney Plus. 😂

6:15pm – Blogging + Mulan 💻 

👑 Two princesses . . .

Number one, Grandmother Fa might be my favorite Disney character of all time. She is HILARIOUS! “Great. She brings home a sword. If you ask me, she should’ve brought home a man.” 😂

Two, Mushu is the BEST! “Dishonor on you, dishonor on your cow . . .” 🐉

Three, Shan Yu is the most terrifying Disney villain. He burns villages full of men, women, & children to the ground. The first time I ever saw Mulan was on accident at a friend’s house. I caught a few seconds of Shan Yu onscreen & didn’t watch it again for years because I was SCARRED. 😭

Four, Li-Shang. No other words needed. 😍

Five, I’ll Make a Man Out of You continues to stand the test of time. What. A. Jam. 🎵

Six, Mulan kicks butt, takes names, & saves China. I’ll wait while you try to think of a superior warrior princess. 🇨🇳

Seven, this is one of my favorite quotes: “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.”

If you couldn’t already tell, this is my favorite Disney princess movie. 🇨🇳 🐉 🗡 👑

9:40pm – Blogging + Pocahontas 💻 

👑 Three princesses!!!

Mulan is the #1 Disney princess in my heart followed by Jasmine. Since I already watched Aladdin, I’m moving on to #3: Pocahontas! 🍁🍂🍃

Number one, the animation is breathtaking. The nature is so vibrant! 🌾🌊

Two, Meeko is always eating. That is a MOOD. 🍪

Three, Kocoum is a beautiful, animated man. I guarantee I’m not the only girl who’s had a crush on him. *sigh* 💕

Four, Jim Cummings is the singing voice for Chief Powhatan & Kekata. 🎤

Five, the frenemy relationship between Percy & Meeko is comedy gold. 😂

Six, this part makes me LOL:

*Meeko steals John’s compass*

John Smith: “Hey!”

Pocahontas: “Meeko! Come back here!”

John Smith: “Don’t worry! He can’t hurt it.”

*Meeko bangs the compass on a rock*

😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂

Seven, Flit is so stinkin’ adorable. 🥰 Is it unrealistic to see this movie & want to explore nature with a hummingbird & raccoon?? 😂

Eight, I’m VERY upset that Disney+ didn’t include If I Never Knew You. 😡 That is one of my favorite Disney songs! 🎶

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALY-NdKexs0

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW! This movie is amazing & still in my top 3 Disney princess movies. 👸🏻 I know there’s controversy about the historical inaccuracies, but I want to focus on the positive which is the message of love over prejudice. That is something all of us can support! ❤️

Final thoughts for the day: I’ve already said a lot about what I watched today so I’ll just sign off for the night. I hope you enjoyed Disney Princess Day because there will probably be a few more before this marathon is done. See you tomorrow for day 11! 👋

Disney+ Marathon Day 9 | November 20

9:45am – Rise & shine! 🌞

Woke up to the BEST NEWS EVER!!! 😱 🎉

Source: https://www.instagram.com/p/B5GBmHpj2-X/

10:20am – Breakfast + The Suite Life of Zack & Cody 🍳 

S1E1 – Hotel Hangout

👁 Spotted: Alyson Stoner! We’ve all envied her dance moves since the early 2000s. I still can’t move like her. 😂

11:20am – Editing a video 🎥

3:20pm – Dinner + The Suite Life of Zack & Cody 🍔 

S1E2 – The Fairest of Them All

👁 Spotted: Victoria Justice! Yes, it’s true. She was on both Disney Channel & Nickelodeon. GASP!

Another familiar Disney Channel face is Matt Winston; he played Hannah Montana’s fashion designer Fermaine. This time around, he was pageant host Tim.

5:15pm – Blogging + The Suite Life of Zack & Cody 💻 

S1E3 – Maddie Checks In

5:45pm – Blogging + Stuck in the Suburbs 💻 

This is my FAVORITE non-franchise Disney Channel original movie. It stars not only Brenda Song & Danielle Panabaker but also baby Taran Killam. Yes, THAT Taran Killam from Saturday Night Live. 😮

Fun Fact: Drew Seeley cameos as David, the hotel desk clerk. It is believed that he was Jordan Cahill’s singing voice. His voice was also used for Troy Bolton in High School Musical (only the 1st movie).

8pm – Blogging + Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior 💻 

If you haven’t already guessed, today is all about Disney Channel queen Brenda Song. 👑

Anyone else have a HUGE crush on Shin Koyamada back in the day?? Since we’re on the subject, I’ll also admit to crushin’ on Justin Chon. *sigh* 🥰

Even though this movie is about a Chinese family, I think it’s important to note that Brenda is Hmong & Thai; Justin is Korean; & Shin is Japanese. 🇨🇳 🇹🇭 🇰🇷 🇯🇵

Final thoughts for the day: Yes, I did spend my day off from work working. But, it was raining, & I was watching Disney+ so I can’t really complain. 😂 I didn’t watch as many Suite Life episodes as I wanted to so don’t be surprised if it pops up again. Stuck in the Suburbs transported me right back to middle school squealing over the latest popstar sensation. I mean, I still wish Jordan Cahill was real. 😍 Ending the day with Wendy Wu has me feeling like a kick-butt warrior who could go out right now & save the world. Show me a villain! 💥 I’m off from work again tomorrow so buckle up for day 10. I see a princess or two or three in my near future. 👸

Disney+ Marathon Day 8 | November 19

Welcome to week 2 of my 30-day Disney+ marathon! Grab your popcorn & settle in for more throwback favorites in the next 7 days. Feel free to interact in the comment section down below. I would love to hear what you’ve been watching on Disney’s new streaming service. 😊

10am – Rise & shine! 🌞

10:30am – Breakfast + Timon & Pumbaa 🍳 

S1E1 – Boara Boara / Saskatchewan Catch

🎵 IT’S OUR PROBLEM FREEEEE PHILOSOPHYYYYY! HAKUNA MATATA!! 🎶

This is a Disney Channel show that I vividly remember watching as a child. One of my favorites then & now!

S1E2 – Kenya Be My Friend? / Good Mousekeeping

👁 Spotted: Rafiki! 💕 Fun Fact: He was one of the first characters I met in Disneyland, my home Disney park.

11:30am – Getting ready for work + Timon & Pumbaa 💄 

Rewatched S1E1

Finished S1E2

1pm – Work 🛍

3:30pm – 15 minute break + Timon & Pumbaa ⏰ 

S1E3 – Brazil Nuts / South Sea Sick / The Lion Sleeps Tonight

6:20pm – Dinner + Timon & Pumbaa 🍲 

S1E3 continued!

7pm – Blogging + Timon & Pumbaa 💻 

S1E4 – Never Everglades / Cooked Goose

S1E5 – Yukon Con / Doubt of Africa

9:20pm – Blogging + The Lion King 💻 

Mufasa’s death still punches me in the gut. On top of that, Simba’s helpless little face & the way he snuggles up to his dad’s body. One of the SADDEST scenes in Disney history! 😭 💔

Final thoughts for the day: Even though my afternoon was spent at work, I had a blast hanging out in the African savanna the rest of the day. I always forget how much I love Timon & Pumbaa. They are hilarious! 😂 I’ve always felt this way, but it needs to be acknowledged that The Lion King has an AMAZING score & soundtrack. It blows my mind every time I watch the movie. So atmospheric! 🌍 I’m off work tomorrow, & it’s supposed to be cold & rainy so I have an ambitious schedule planned. Get excited! 😆

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

🎵 BOYZ! WE ARE THE BOYZ IN MOTION! WE GIVE YOU OUR DEVOTION! 🎶

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:

S1E1 – Meet the Curtis

S1E2 – Unification Day

I totally forgot Brenda Song was on this show! 🥰

S1E3 – Your Cheatin’ Heart

You know how the Diffys, a family from the 22nd century, use instamorph for disguises?? Today we have social media filters that change our faces. We’re still making our way through the 21st century. Mind blowing! 🤯

4pm – Blogging + Pixel Perfect 💻 

In this movie you will spot Raviv Ullman, a familiar face from Phil of the Future, & Tania Gunadi from Go Figure. Also, another awesome soundtrack! 😭💕

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmmfRnUMk4M

5:45pm – Blogging + Cow Belles 💻 

This movie stars Aly Michalka, another familiar face from Phil of the Future. She is joined by her sister AJ. Aly Michalka. AJ Michalka. Aly and AJ Michalka. Aly & AJ. YES, THAT ALY & AJ!! 🎤

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3_8Uutd584

Final thoughts for the day: I was supposed to end the day with a hot bath & Now You See It, another movie starring Aly Michalka. Unfortunately I got distracted with work, & now it’s 1am. I’m off to bed so I can wake up & head straight for Disney+. Tomorrow this marathon hits the one week mark. Hopefully you’re enjoying my blog posts every day! If you’re not, don’t tell me. 😉
