As far back as I can remember Disney Movies/TV has been a big part of my life. I guess that is where my love of Disney comes from. With the launch of Disney+ today, which will be like a blast from the past, I thought I would share some of my Disney filled Childhood with you.
🐘 My favorite Childhood Disney Channel Show was Dumbo’s Circus
🧜🏻♀️ First Disney Movie I remember seeing in the theater, The Little Mermaid
🧳☂️🎠🧹 I used to play Mary Poppins and Bed-knobs and Broomsticks
🐩 I loved 101 Dalmatians so much my first dog was a Dalmatian puppy.
🌷👑💋 My favorite Princess movie is Sleeping Beauty
❤️ I loved D2 The Mighty Ducks for the hot guys (especially the cowboy 🤠) (I thought Joshua Jackson was cool before Dawson’s Creek)
So far I’m not 100% thrilled, there are a few things missing I thought would be on here. (I think part of me was hoping Dumbo’s Circus would be on Disney+. But that’s not the only thing.)
🏈🎀 The five year old is playing football and the four year old is cheering so this past Saturday morning was spent in the blazing sun watching them.
🏁 I don’t follow NASCAR like I used to but I’m not going to lie when I saw the headline Dale Earnhardt Jr was in a plane crash my heart sunk. He was my first NASCAR love. I’m glad him and his family and crew all survived.
📺 I still can not get into this new BH90210. I was super excited for it and it had been a big let down to me.
🏰 I think we have created a Disney Monster. The other day we had some stuff for the kids so we put it in an old Disney Parks bag we had and as soon at the four year old saw it she asked if we went to Disney without her.
🌅 I purchased Where the Crawdads Sing, looked at it and decided it would be my vacation read when we go to the Outer Banks in October.
📚 I thought I was getting my reading groove back but not really. I think part of the problem is I have so many books I want to read I just can’t decide which direction to head.
📚 5 & 10 Reading Update: This past weekend was a little hard, for a change I was not the first one up and we had stuff going on each day. But I got my pages read. I’m really enjoying this. I am further in this book this way than I would be if I tried to just read it.
⚓️ A Disney Cruise with the kids might actually be on the horizon. I’m already thinking about their fish extender and door magnets!
📖 I usually enjoy reading on my Kindle but it seems right now I am on a kick where I only want to read actual books.
📔 Has anyone read Where the Crawdads Sing? I am hearing so many good things about this book, I might have to check it out.
🎃 I am not ready for all this Halloween stuff I am starting to see.
😭 My little man starts kindergarten tomorrow. I can’t handle this. He will be heading off to his first day with his Spider-Man backpack we got him.
I guess I am considered a Millennial and I do not have children of my own and I love Disney.
For those of you that follow Disney World on social media and the news you may know where I am going with this, for those of you who may not, here is a brief overview. There was recently a woman who had a rant on social media how childless millennials should not be allowed in the parks only families.
Almost all of my trips are childless, with the exception of my most recent. I know what it is like to be there with a tired hot cranky child. (Heck I even know what it’s like to be there with a tired hot cranky adult.). While the kids are not my own I love them like they are and it’s hard I get that. They want everything they see and they don’t understand having to wait in line. Plain and simple Disney is overwhelming to a child, and I get that. And I know as a parent you want you child to have a great time, especially with the prices you pay now days.
When we were there with kids I never once looked at those there without kids and wished I was them and when I am there without kids I never look at the families and wish they would have left their kids at home. Disney is for everyone from the very young to the old. And anyone that goes to Disney should know what they are getting into. I feel like I get more out of Disney now as an adult than I did as a kid. I think now we go more for the food but I love everything about it. I guess I am even worse because not only am I a childless millennial my adult only trips are with my baby boomer parents.
Yesterday I shared my Minnie Ear Obsession with you. Now I have a question for all my fellow Disney loving Minnie ear wearing fans. How do you pack your Minnie ears when traveling? I’ve had a few ideas but none have panned out so far. I don’t want to just “throw” them in a bag but I want them protected too.
