30 Day Challenge

My first ever Disney movie – 30 Day Disney Challenge: Day 15

How many of you remember the first movie you ever saw in theaters?  Anyone?

Well if you do, you are lucky.  Because I know which movie I first saw in theaters, and it was also my first Disney movie (that I know of, unless mom had me watch a Disney movie at home, before I was two, without my knowledge.  Sneaky.)

But though I know what my first Disney flick was, I don’t remember going to see it at all.  But since I trust my mother on this one, seeing as her mind was much more developed in 1992 than mine was, we’ll go with her memory banks.

First ever Disney movie: Aladdin

Apparently, my first Disney movie at 2 years old.
Apparently, my first Disney movie.

 According to reliable sources (aka mom & dad) my dad took me to see this, my first movie in a theater!

Come to think of it, maybe that’s why it’s still one of my favorites, and has my favorite Disney kiss, one of my favorite princesses…

Maybe why I have a thing for Disney thieves…

But I digress.

And I must give a nod to the first Disney movie I remember seeing in theaters, though of course by the time it came out, I was well into my career-level of Disney movie-watching, with dozens of rounds of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White under my belt.

There were a lot of runs for more popcorn when we went to see this, that much I remember.  And that’s about it, besides a vague recollection of sitting next to my mom and seeing lions and Zazu on the screen.

Zazu
Gee, I wonder where my lifelong love of snarkiness came from? *Bazinga*

Of course, I’ve now seen this movie around 100 times (thanks, little sister!) and know the music and words by heart–thank you Elton John!

(*cough*Of course this is only his second-best animated musical… Dreamworks’ El Dorado was amazing, *cough cough*)

What was your first Disney movie?  I’m always curious how some people got to adulthood, let alone ten, before ever seeing a Disney masterpiece.  Whether you were itty-bitty, or not-so itty-bitty, I’d love to know what your first Disney experience was!
