#DMM – Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride

Disney Music Monday

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s #DisneyMusicMonday post!  I’m joined by my buddy Tim from Dad for Disney, and each Monday we bring you a special post that helps you get through the blahs that Monday’s can bring to us sometimes.  Well, I don’t want to brag, but I think I have got the PERFECT song to put a smile on your face.  I like this song so much that I’m actually putting two videos of the song in it — so go ahead, hit that play button twice, and enjoy!

I came across this gem from the Disney Modern Classics soundtrack that I bought on iTunes.  Of course, the song Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride is from Lilo & Stitch, and also Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch.  What I love about this song is the upbeat melody, the rhythm that just flows, and the feeling, despite just listening to the song, as if you have been transported out to Hawaii and are on that surfboard yourself!  I hope you enjoy these YouTube videos as much as I do — the first one is the original song as performed by Mark Kealiʻi Hoʻomalu and The Kamehameha Schools Children’s Chorus.

This next version of the song was performed by the band Jump 5 and is full of energy and pep.  Here is the video:

So tell me, which one did you like better? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by today on our #DisneyMusicMonday sing along!

51 Days: The Magic of Disney Animation

Disney Animation

The Magic of Disney Animation is our choice for #Day51 of our #DisneyWorldCountdown.

Today is #Day51 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown, and on this day, we are taking a look at an attraction called The Magic of Disney Animation.  Inside this attraction you will find many things to do, including some of the following:

  • Watch a show staring Mushu from the Disney movie Mulan and explore how characters are brought to life and drawn for a movie.
  • After the movie, you can visit the Animation Station, where you can draw a Disney character at the Animation Academy, create a soundtrack to a famous Disney scene at The Sound Stage, add color to a movie sequence at the Digital Ink and Pain area, figure out what character you would be by answering questions given to you by Lumiere, and look at some of the historic items on display in the Animation Gallery.
  • In addition, there are several meet and greet character greetings here, so look for more information when you arrive as to who will be there and when they will be appearing!
  • By the way, did you know that this same building was where Lilo & Stitch, Mulan, and Brother Bear were created?

To wrap it up, here are some pictures I’ve taken from inside the building.  I hope you enjoy them!

One of the artist’s work areas, this one was for Lynn Rippberger.

Part of the building housed the Ratatouille area back in 2008.

Last but certainly not least, look who Sophie had her picture with!
