Disney Music Monday – Tangled

Tangled

Rapunzel’s Tower from the movie Tangled.

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s #DisneyMusicMonday post.  We are joined by my co-host Tim from Dad for Disney.  Welcome Tim, and welcome to all of you that are stopping by to get a lift on this early Monday morning!  I hope that the song I’ve chosen gives you a smile and helps start your week off right!

As you can see, today I’m focusing on the Disney movie Tangled, which is one of my favorite movies.  There is a lot of great music associated with this film, and today I’m going to focus on the song “I’ve got a Dream” — the song performed inside of the Ugly Duckling!  Have a look at the YouTube video listed below, and enjoy!

Now please have a look at the rest of the entries, and thanks for stopping by!  If you have a blog and want to link up a post that fits our topic, please feel free to do so!  Have a great week, everyone!  Also, don’t forget to enter to win a copy of the book “A Christian’s Guide to Walt Disney World Resort” by Jeff Chaves!  The giveaway runs until Sunday, September 21st, at 11:59PM.  Good luck everyone, and thanks!

Do You Want To Build a Snowman?

Anna

The story of Anna in the Disney movie Frozen is, to me, one of love, fun, games, and then, sadness.  Once Anna was hurt by Elsa, all fun that Anna and Elsa had was immediately halted, and Anna grew up in a very lonely home.  Elsa did as well, of course, but we discussed her last week, so today, we are going to focus on Anna.

I absolutely love the way Disney worked all of the emotions into such a simple question “Do you want to build a snowman?”  In the beginning, that question signalled the start of fun for the girls.  Then, after the accident, that question was meant to illicit a return to the love they had when they were younger.  That continued until the day their parents died — and with that passing, instantly Anna and Elsa were thrown into the deep end of having to swim on their own.

Now, all of a sudden, the question “Do you want to build a snowman?” wasn’t about playing, or having fun, or anything like that.  Suddenly, in the blink of an eye, that question became about returning to the life they had before their parents died.  Suddenly, building a snowman was to return to the carefree days of their youth, about turning back the clock, the hands of time; building a snowman was about returning their parents to them.  That was, to me, the saddest part of the entire movie.

I think, in many ways, we all ask the question “Do you want to build a snowman?” of ourselves in times of sorrow; I know that when Cindy’s Uncle Bob passed away, some small part of me — the human side of me that wanted him back — wanted to build that snowman and bring Uncle Bob back, despite the fact that I knew he was in a far better place.

What life event have you had happen that you wanted to build a snowman and turn back the sands of time?  If you are comfortable sharing it, we would love to hear it.  Thank you for stopping by and reflecting with us on how we all try to build a snowman.

#DisneyTrivia: Welcome to Disney, Mr. Davis!

Marc Davis

Hello everyone, and welcome to Tiggerific Tuesday #DisneyTrivia segment, the weekly trivia segment that I host along with my good friends Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Jen from Disney Babies Blog, and Heidi from Heidi’s Head!  Even though today is not Tuesday, it’s Monday evening, we like to get a good start on our trivia for the week, so I hope you’ll forgive the faux paux!

Today is a very important day if you are a Disney History buff like I am!  Today, as you can see from the image, is the 78th anniversary of the hiring of Marc Davis!  Mr. Davis, as you may recall from my Disney Legends post about him, is one of Walt’s Nine Old Men, and was noted for such incredible attractions as Pirates of the Caribbean, among others!  I think it is safe to say that today was a very big day, not only in the life of Marc Davis, but also in the life of all of us that love to visit Disney parks around the world!  Here is the official text, as seen on This Day in Disney History:

December 2, 1935: Marc Davis begins working as an apprentice animator at the Walt Disney Studios. He is immediately thrown into 2 weeks of intense drawing classes – taught by the studio’s resident instructor Donald Graham. Davis will go on to become one of Walt’s “Nine Old Men” and create such memorable Disney characters as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Tinker Bell and Cruella de Vil! He will later become one of Walt’s original Imagineers and ultimately a Disney Legend.

Thank you for taking a trip down Disney history Lane with me, please go check out what Heidi, Jen, and Jodi have for us as well, and please add your own trivia posts into our list!
