My Top 5 Disney Films

This week I thought it would be fun to share with you my favourite Disney movies and I chose my Top 5 which proved to be rather difficult but I feel I made some pretty good choices! 

Fantasia 
Although this isn't technically a film, Fantasia was the one thing I was obsessed with more than anything when I was a child. I watched it that much that my video broke and when I started earning my own money, it was one of the first things I bought for myself on DVD. I just love the way the animation was designed to fit the music, the imagination and stunning story lines. My favourite piece is The Pastoral Symphony which I'm sure many of you will recognise as the part with all the unicorns, fawns, centaurs and pegasus. The scenes from this section of Fantasia are what I imagine when I think of my happy place or when I attempt meditation. I adore all of the pastel colours, so magical!



101 Dalmations
This film is usually my go to if I'm ever ill…don't ask why it just cheers me up big time and I just love snuggling down to watch this with a hot chocolate. Perhaps it's because it's based in the UK and makes me feel at home and it's such a wintery movie which adds to the snuggly feel. It's also all about dogs so what's not to love? Cruella is a real demon along with Jasper and Horrace who are scary as hell yet hilarious and it's such a classic for all ages.



Robin Hood
As someone who was born and partly raised in the heart of Nottingham, Robin Hood will always have a special place in my life. I also cannot be the only person on planet Earth to find Disney's Robin Hood slightly attractive? For a fox I mean, come on - he's lovely! Maid Marian is so beautiful and the scene with Clucky the hen playing badminton tickles me every time. This is such a great watch for all ages and educational as well. Can we also take a moment to appreciate how hilarious Prince John is too? Between him and Sir Hiss, I can't decide which is funnier but they make a brilliant duo and I can't get enough of their priceless comedy.



Tangled
I remember the first time I saw Tangled and how much I loved it from the very start. I feel this was the start of Disney's new line of princesses - the ones who kicked ass and taught young girls that princess doesn't mean damsel in distress. There is no denying that Rapunzel is everything; clever, hilarious, beautiful, cute, daring and heroic, not to mention they also switched it up a bit with Flynn Rider from your typical Prince Charming! You have to admit, he's an exceedingly attractive Disney male and I fall in love with their relationship every time I watch this movie. Mother Gothel is terrifying, Pascal adorable, there is fantastic music throughout and it's a bloody good story line.



Pocahontas
Pocahontas was never a favourite Disney movie as a kid, but it sure did make it's way up there as I got older and understood that everything that is addressed within the film you simply cannot ignore. So many grown up topics are covered and to be honest it's way too grown up and I doubt Disney would get away with making this sort of content today, but it's such a brilliant movie and I feel everyone should watch it at least once. I love seeing John Smith's views of the world and values change once he meets Pocahontas. Miko is one of my all time favourite Disney characters too which is a bonus! I feel so at peace when I find myself submerged in the Pocahontas world and it contains so many life lessons.



Thanks for reading!

    1. I watch Fantasia all the time - definitely worth a watch! I think as an adult you can appreciate how they made the animation to fit the music whereas as a child, it's fun to watch with pretty music :) let me know what you think if you watch it! x x
