Quickie Post: Once Upon A Time

So I just finished the latest season of Once Upon a Time, and I have to say, it went far beyond my expectations.  I thought Frozen would be ridiculous, but it actually worked!  Ahh, the soothing feeling of epically-sized plot-holes being filled… Nothing soothes my geeky heart more.

I mean, talk about spot on casting.

Hans, we hate you.  But we love to hate you. So we hate it when you aren't there to hate...  What I'm trying to say is, it's good to see you again! Now go away.

Anna and Elsa looked pretty good, too!

Not every shot of them was as perfect as Hans, but they were darn good! Especially their habits.  Every time Anna rambled, it just made me happy.  Almost as happy as that perfect Elsa smile.

And of course, Kristoff.

If only the girls hadn't convinced you to chop off your hair for the wedding.  That's the reason I liked Sven a little better than you. Sven was perfect.

And I have to say, while I loved these moments…

Yay!  But this compromises morals... but they're so good together... but it's so wrong...  So this is what 'shipping' feels like...

…I am really happy that they forced Robin to do the right thing.

Also, new favorite side character.  Because dammit, Rumple, I despise you now.

I have to add that I love Regina, and it was heartwarming to see her happy for a little while.

Not to mention that hilarious drinking scene with Emma. I lol'd.

And last but not least, THIS.

CAPTAIN SWAN LIVES ON!
CAPTAIN SWAN LIVES ON!

I am so happy these two are still together!

(I mean, dear God, Belle, could you have cut it any closer?!?!?!  We Captain Swan shippers nearly died.)

 Killian has absolutely become my favorite character in the entire series.  I love his backstory. He is wonderfully complex, would do anything for Emma, and even got her father’s approval.

He is also one of the characters where, when he says something, I believe every word.  Definitely the best acting out of the cast, right above Rumple and Regina.

Now I can’t wait for next season!  I must say, I spied the perfect Cruella in the last episode.  I hope they do a lot with her.  (Though, isn’t she supposed to be from London? In our world/realm?)

The Sorcerer’s Hat is Gone!

Something big is going on in Hollywood Studios, and if you’re a serial Disney World guest, you probably already know what it is…

The Sorcerer Mickey hat is going away.

For a lot of people, including myself, that is the main icon they associate with Hollywood Studios, or at least the first big icon they notice when entering the park!  You see, the hat has not always been there, as some of us assumed.  (Oops.) Continue reading “The Sorcerer’s Hat is Gone!”

Is “Love is an Open Door” actually a villain Song?

I know.  You’re reading this and going “No!  I love that song!  It’s so sweet!”

Yes, yes it is… If you are thinking about Anna’s part.

Let’s think about Hans’ lines for a moment, shall we?

Oh Grumpy Cat, how right you are this time.
Oh Grumpy Cat, how right you are this time.

Anna sings: “All my life has been a series of doors in my face/and then suddenly, I bump into you!”

Hans: “I was thinking the same thing!  Cuz’ like, I’ve been searching my whole life to find my own place.

There.

Right there.  See it?

Anna is totally talking about how she has finally found someone to love her.

Hans keeps saying the word place.  Shall we look some more?

Hans-image-hans-36124511-640-360
At least he’s willing to sing and dance for the throne… I guess…

Anna: “But with you, I see your face, and it’s nothing like I’ve ever known before. Love is an open door!”

Hans: “But with you, I’ve found my place, and it’s nothing like I’ve ever known before.  Love is an open door!”

He doesn’t say anything particularly nice about Anna here, facially or otherwise.  He’s not unkind, but he just doesn’t mention her.  He’s still talking about his place.

Hans & Anna: “Say goodbye to the pain of the past!  We don’t have to feel it anymore.”

Hmm, the pain of loneliness from not finding your love, or the pain of knowing that 12 of your siblings would have to die in order for you to rule?  Hmm?  Which is it, Hans?!

Thank goodness he was thinking “sentences.”  Just in case that beginning ‘s’ slipped out, he was covered.

One last thing.  At the end they both sing “Life can be so much more with you!”  More like… being king?

To Hans, love is an open door… an open door to Arandelle’s throne room!

Really, you didn't even have to kill Anna… According to Once Upon a Time, Anna & Elsa's mother was heir to the throne, yet their father was still a king.  Hans, you selfish jerk.

***Afternote: I do love this song.  Even as a love song, it is super sweet and cute.  But the subtle hints are just wonderful little tidbits, kind of like Mother Gothel only saying “I love you most” to Rapunzel’s hair, not Rapunzel herself.***

Your thoughts?

(I need to credit some of these thoughts coming from my Photography friend from Disney Days, and her sister and fellow blogger, Further Into His Heart.)

Favorite Sidekick – 30 Day Disney Challenge: Day 7

I have to be honest, the first sidekicks I thought of are Dreamworks characters…

Because Tulio and Miguel act like the sidekicks.  It's really a serious story about the horse's journey.

Oops.

But I do have a favorite Disney sidekick duo, too!  So without further ado… Continue reading “Favorite Sidekick – 30 Day Disney Challenge: Day 7”

Quickie Post: Hot Cocoa

I can’t believe that we’re already in season four of Once Upon A Time, and there is something I hadn’t done until today:

Try hot cocoa with cinnamon sprinkled on top.

A faithful fan for four years, and I am ashamed to say the thought hadn’t occurred to me to try this foreign mix.

Finally, today, on a whim at a local Starbucks, I tried it.  And it’s delicious.

Thanks for the suggestion, Swan!
I don’t think I can go back to no cinnamon.
