It’s obvious by now that I have a horrible time remembering and finding the time to do any kind of “____ Days-Long Challenge.” (See the Days of Thanks from November if you must… I got to day seven.)
So, since I stink so badly at finishing challenges, I’m going to finish up the 30 Day Disney challenge in this one post. No muss, no fuss, and I’ll keep the answers *gasp* short.
We left off on Day 21, “An Overrated Movie.” So now we move on to…
Day 22: An underrated movie.
Winner: Treasure Planet. If you haven’t seen this movie, WATCH IT. It is spectacular.
If you think it looks stupid because it’s sailing ships in space, you’re wrong.
Go back, read the original novel, and then watch the movie. It is an amazing adaption, especially how they re-made all of the characters while keeping true to the original story.
Day 23: A movie that makes you laugh.
Um… All of them? Nothing is popping immediately to mind…
I guess we will go with
Winner: Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.
So many gems of lines in that film. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, then clearly you’ve never been to Singapore.
Day 24: A movie that makes you cry.
Winner: Inside Out
I laughed. I cried (a lot). It moved me, Bob.
Day 25: Your favorite scene from your favorite movie.
Winner: The lantern scene from Tangled.
Followed by a close second with this moment:
Day 26: Saddest death.
I was about to say Kerchak in Tarzan. But it goes to…
Winner: Kala & Kerchak’s first baby gorilla.
You thought I’d pick Mufasa, didn’t you? And watching a beloved character become an orphan after seeing his parent die is sad.
What’s sadder is a baby being torn apart by a leopard and watching the baby’s helpless parents know they can’t stop it.
When you’re done with that visual, we move on to….
Day 27: Your favorite quote.
So, growing up my family spoke mostly in Disney quotes. This is probably due to watching SO many Disney movies with my sister, who has autism, and would watch one movie over and over again for a month.
Let me tell you: One month of any Disney movie is one too many if you don’t switch it up. I could probably write out the scores for several Disney films, part-for-part, with barely a flaw, just because I heard them from my room at the end of the hall SO MANY TIMES. (I consider it a gift. I can karaoke the crap out of Disney music.)
If you are a Trekki (sp?) who knows about the “When the walls fell” episode, that’s pretty much how my family appears to outsiders. I’ve known my husband for over six years now, and sometimes he still thinks I’m being rude or snarky when I’m actually quoting Scuttle, or Flounder, or Lumiere, etc.
It can make life really interesting.
Some family faves are:
“It was all ‘this is this, and that is that…'”
“It’s like he’s trying to speak to me! Look, you’re really cute…”
There are dozens of other family favorites, but I’m blanking. So in the interest of speed, I’ll pick a personal fave:
“All at once, everything looks different now that I see you.”
Day 28: Your favorite theme park.
Winner: Disney’s Animal Kingdom
I’m obligated to choose this one. It’s where I got engaged. 😀
Plus it’s usually the most peaceful park to visit. (hint, hint)
Day 29: Your favorite theme attraction.
Winner: Star Tours/Everest.
I can’t choose just one. They are SO different. Star Tours made me cry when my childhood dreams came true. Everest is one of my favorite coasters OF ALL TIME.
Day 30: Your favorite theme park show.
Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom.
Best show in the parks. Followed closely by Fantasmic. But the talent in Festival of the Lion King beats out everything else. I highly recommend it, especially if Be Prepared is one of your fave villain songs.
Or, as Prince James would say on Sofia the First:
BOOM GOES THE CANNON!
(We have a very Sofia friendly household.)
Hope you enjoyed the quickie-version of the challenge! Do you agree? Disagree? Have other “what are your fave” questions? Let me know!
