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 . . .

Happy Birthday Pixar! | Part 1

The official 30th birthday of Pixar was February 3rd, but the celebration is lasting all year long.  Let’s throw our own “party” readers.  I’m going to answer some Pixar-related questions.  Feel free to participate and leave your own answers in the comment section below. :)

– Favorite Movie –

(I’m counting both of these movies as one)  I have been touched emotionally by a lot of Pixar movies, the “Toy Story” series being at the top of the list.  However, there is something so unique and mesmerizing about the concept and execution of “Monsters Inc” and “Monsters University.”  Also, the relationship between Sully, Mike, & Boo never ceases to tug at my heartstrings.

Video Source: https://youtu.be/6tCxnHCqqxg

Video Source: https://youtu.be/xBzPioph8CI

– Favorite Character(s) –

Mike Wazowski is stubborn.  No matter how many times he gets knocked down and told no, he gets back up and finds a way.  Woody hates change, but once he lets you into his heart, he never lets go.  Mike is a fighter, and Woody is a friend; I’d like to think those two labels describe me as well. 💖

– Favorite Scene –

I just watched this scene on Youtube and cried.  It gets me every time!!  😭  I think this scene affects me so deeply because I said a final goodbye to childhood within the past 4 years.  My childhood wasn’t perfect, but I can say with confidence that I pushed my imagination to infinity and beyond. ;)  Some people may not understand, but it was very hard for me when I started giving away my movies and toys.  I cried giving away my “Blue’s Clues” movies, not because I wanted to keep them but rather I truly cherished every piece of knowledge I had gained through that TV program.  When I sold my barbies, I took the time to clean them up and make them look nice because they had given me so many adventures; I wanted the next child to have the same experiences.  I still feel stuck in a transition period.  I am constantly listening to old songs and drowning myself in nostalgia.  Never be embarrassed to step back in time in order to feel happy. :)

– Favorite Song –

No contest!  “Life is a Highway” from “Cars.”  I dare you to watch the movie and resist the urge to sing along. 🎶

“There’s no load I can’t hold
Road so rough this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Just tell ’em we’re survivors.”

DisneyBounding Into Autumn

(Image Source: https://katejohns619.wordpress.com/tag/pocahontas/)

What is it: Disney Parks do not allow visitors to wear costumes because they might be mistaken for cast members.  DisneyBound refers to the subtle replication of Disney characters and places using street clothes.  This way, no one gets in trouble, and everybody has fun.  :)

How Did it Start:  Leslie Kalbfleisch A.K.A. Leslie Kay has imitated characters using fashion from the time she was a child.  When she finally achieved her goal of visiting Disney World with her best friend, she created a Tumblr blog to document the trip.  She called it “DisneyBound” because she was literally “Disney-Bound.”  All she had to do was post a few Disney-themed outfits, and it took less than a month for Leslie to get national recognition.  DisneyBound has its own community as well as a clothing lines dedicated to making DisneyBounding easier.  The possibilities are endless!!  (Liddane)

Moving on to part 2 of this post, I want to show you seven DisneyBound looks.  These are outfits I created from my own closet, no purchases necessary.

All the outfits are featured in my “Autumn DisneyBound Lookbook” video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deEr9JoF3vI

Keep in mind this is my interpretation of seven Disney characters based on what was available in my wardrobe.  The ensembles are not perfect, but they capture the spirit of the characters.  DisneyBound is supposed to be fun, not difficult or stressful.

Once Upon a Disney

I promised you more Disney so prepare yourself for an avalanche of nothing but DISNEY.  These decisions were very, VERY difficult so please understand if I give more than one answer.

* * * NOTE: Press Command + to make the blog bigger, and click on each image to make it bigger. * * *

• Favorite Disney Park – Disneyland

I’m a loyal California girl. 🌞

• Favorite Disney Park Attraction – Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

This ride has just enough twists and turns to excite me but not scare me.  I am not ashamed to admit I am a wimp when it comes to roller coasters.

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVP82m5KdDY

• Favorite Moment/Experience at a Disney Park

I have numerous memories from visiting Disney parks over the past 10+ years, but there is no time like the first time.  I was eight years old, disney-obsessed, and way too excited to notice crowds and hurting feet.  No negatives, only positives.  I still have my autograph book and pictures from that trip.  Good times!

• Favorite Disney Channel Show – Lizzie McGuire

I am the brunette version of Lizzie.  One disaster after another. 😑

Do You Actually Remember Lizzie McGuire? – http://www.playbuzz.com/emilyg11/do-you-actually-remember-lizzie-mcguire

I answered 12/15 questions correctly.  Not bad!

Lizzie McGuire Episodes on Hulu: http://www.hulu.com/search?q=Lizzie+McGuire&type=episodes

• Favorite Animated Disney Channel Show – Kim Possible

Do you remember the Kim Possible clothing line??  I do!!  I went through a looong Kim Possible/spy phase.  It was fantastic. 😄

Kim Possible Episodes on Hulu: http://www.hulu.com/search?q=Kim+Possible&type=episodes

• Favorite Disney Channel Original Movie(s) – Stuck in the Suburbs, Cheetah Girls 12, and the High School Musical trilogy

Baby Taran Killam??  Yes please!!

Me and my friends used to pretend we were the Cheetah Girls; my identities were Chanel and Dorinda.  I still know most of the lyrics to their songs.  Cheetahlicious!!

I had a sleepover when HSM 2 premiered, and, when I hosted a sleepover for my dance school friends, we watched the trilogy.  We’re all in this together!

*Note: I know #3 isn’t a Disney Channel original movie, but I couldn’t mention one without the other two.

• Favorite Disney Princess Movie – Mulan & Aladdin

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJJog4BJrUw

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWLa6y7Z2TE

• Favorite Disney Princess(es) – Mulan & Jasmine

Mulan’s courage is something I admire and strive for.  Imagine that!  A cartoon character as a role model.  Jasmine is exotic and beautiful (yes, a cartoon character can be beautiful).  She longs to be independent, free from strict rules; I can relate to that as an artist.  Mulan is my favorite, but Jasmine is a close second because she was my favorite growing up.

• Favorite Disney Prince – Flynn Rider & Aladdin

Hypothetically, if I had to pick a Disney prince to marry, it would probably  be Flynn.  Why?  I am a serious person so I need someone to balance out my drama with humor.  Flynn is a funny guy, but he also has a good heart underneath all the capers and hijinks.

No matter what Aladdin wants, he always follows his heart and does the right thing.  For example, he steals bread to feed his empty stomach, but, after outrunning a group of soldiers, he decides to give the bread to two children digging in the trash for food.  He has three wishes, and he chooses to give Genie his freedom with the 3rd.

• Favorite Royal Disney Couple/Love Story – Beast/Prince Adam & Belle

Belle looks past Beast’s scary appearance and makes an effort to be his friend when no other human will.  Beautiful!

• Favorite Animated Disney Movie – Tarzan

The environment, story, and music blend together in sweet harmony.  There is never a moment when watching the movie is a bad idea.

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zc3MnoSS5Hw

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfciC33t3M0

Fun Fact: There was a TV show on Disney Channel called Legend of Tarzan.  Look it up on Youtube and enjoy!

*Note: My current top seven animated Disney movies are Tarzan, Hercules, Aladdin, Brother Bear, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mulan, and Lilo & Stitch.  This list is subject to change.  Yes, Mulan was ahead of Aladdin in the “Disney Princess Movie” category, but from a broader point of view Aladdin is in the lead.  I’m just now noticing six of my top seven movies have a male protagonist.  Interesting!

• Favorite Non-Royal Disney Couple/Love Story – Tarzan & Jane

They are basically the non-royal equivalent of Beast and Belle except Tarzan isn’t arrogant, and he remains a jungle man.  Adorable!

• Favorite Non-Princess Disney Character(s) – Megara & Esmeralda

Both are beautiful and sassy.  Need I say more?!  When I was little, I went through a gypsy phase.  I wore my Esmeralda skirt ALL the time, and, to top it off, I wore my Pocahontas shirt.  Disney fashion at its finest!

Favorite Non-Prince Disney Character – Stitch, Phil, & Phoebus

Stitch is quirky and adorable, and he feels like he doesn’t belong anywhere, which is something I feel on a daily basis.  Basically we’re long lost twins.  Phoebus is hysterical; he is Flynn Rider #2.  What can I say?  I like to laugh. 😂

• Favorite Talking Disney Sidekick(s) – Genie & Mushu

This category is hard to narrow down because some of the best Disney characters are sidekicks.  Genie is Robin Williams in cartoon form.  We’re not worthy of his genius!!  Mushu’s personality never ceases to make me cry from laughter, and I most definitely need Pegasus in my life.  I wouldn’t have to drive! 👍

• Favorite Non-Talking Disney Sidekick(s): Meeko, & Pegasus

I split the sidekick category because this decision felt like I was choosing my favorite child, and I had to make room for indecision.  ;)  I have ALWAYS loved Meeko & Pegasus.  Both of them are adorable, and they have some attitude.  Meeko is mischievous, and Pegasus is sassy.

• Favorite Disney Villain – Hades

Hades is a villain, but he’s also funny.  I’m not comparing the two, but he brings to mind a villainous version of Genie.  Maybe, maybe not.

• Animated Disney Character(s) I Am Most Like – Belle & Megara

I have fair skin, brown hair, and green eyes like Belle (green and hazel eyes are similar).  Also, I love reading.  I am quite sassy and stubborn; that’s where Megara fits into the puzzle.  It is 50/50.  Sugar & spice.  Call me Bellegara!!

• Least Favorite Character(s) From a Disney Movie – Francis from Swiss Family Robinson and Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

I mean no offense, but I am personally annoyed by these two characters, especially their voices.

 

• Favorite Soundtrack From An Animated Disney Movie – Tarzan & Brother Bear

Phil Collins is a musical genius!!  <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

• Favorite Song From An Animated Disney Movie – I See the Light

This song is lyrically touching and vocally stunning.  It also translates seamlessly into other languages.  To me, that is what makes it not just a good song but a great song.

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mayDR-PlXo

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEdfsxz274I

*Note: Some of my other favorite songs (in no particular order) include A Whole New World, God Bless the OutcastsGo the DistanceHawaiian Roller Coaster Ride, I’ll Make a Man Out of You, I Wont Say I’m in LoveLook Through My Eyes, and Two Worlds.  I’m not sure I could ever pick a definite top 3 or 5 or 10.  Way too hard a decision!

• Favorite Cover of a Song From an Animated Disney Movie – Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride by Jump  5

I blasted Jump 5 back in the day.  This song always puts a smile on my face and makes me want to dance.

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7wS3Pt7E68

• Favorite Pixar Movie(s) –  Monsters, Inc. series

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tCxnHCqqxg

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBzPioph8CI

I can’t explain exactly why these are my favorite Pixar movies.  All I can say is I love the concept and the heart of this series.  Fun Fact: I have stuffed animal versions of Mike and Sully from Monsters University on my bed.  That’s right!  Making my twenties awesome. 😉

• Favorite Pixar Character(s) – Mike Wasowski & Woody.

I love Woody’s loyalty and desire to preserve tradition.  I love that no matter how many times Mike gets criticized and knocked down, he gets back up and finds a way to succeed.  A friend and a fighter, two things I strive to be.

• Favorite Song From a Pixar Movie: Life is a Highway, Rascal Flatts

Every time I watch the movie, I can’t help singing out loud when this song plays.

🎶 Life’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind  🎶

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UdZIh8_xGc

• What Disney/Pixar Movie(s) Makes Me Cry Without Fail – Lilo & Stitch & Toy Story 3

Stitch feels like he does not belong anywhere.  Who hasn’t felt that way at some point in their life??

Throughout the entire movie, Andy is dealing with saying goodbye to childhood.  The story never ceases to make me cry because I am currently struggling with that very issue.

Honestly, I think every Disney movie has at least one part that makes me tear up.  When Bambi’s mother dies in Bambi.  When Sulley says goodbye to Boo in Monsters, Inc.  When Aladdin sets Genie free in Aladdin.  The ENTIRE The Fox and the Hound movie.  The ENTIRE Dumbo movie.  When Ariel says goodbye to her dad at the end of The Little Mermaid.  There are numerous other scenes that make me cry, too many to count.  Disney certainly knows how to tug at one’s heartstrings! 😭

• Favorite Live-Action Disney Movie(s) – Into the Woods, Pirates of the Caribbean Series, & The Moon-Spinners

The acting, music, and visuals in this film are a delight to experience from start to finish.  Absolute magic!

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Byk9Is3TjY

Dark, thrilling, and full of pirates.  What’s not to love?!

• Favorite Song From a Live-Action Disney Movie – Agony

AHEM……….

Please don’t judge me because I am totally judging myself right now.  It’s a good song!!  If you love showtunes and over-the-top drama, trust me and listen to the song.
