Moments of #MyDisneyLife 11

When Disney got in touch and asked me to share with you moments of #MyDisneyLife I thought this is going to be so easy.  Everyone has a stand out Disney moment, right? Erm, wrong.  I have been mulling over this for days.  Days I tell you.  In the end, I had a revelation when talking to my husband.  This was proving so hard as I don’t have one Disney moment, no I have a lifetime of them.


Disney has been part of my life for as long as I can remember, it is woven into the threads.  My first trip to the cinema with my Dad was to see Dumbo.  I can clearly remember the pink elephants flying in the sequence when the champagne had been knocked into the water bucket.  Dumbo was also the first Disney movie that we had on home video too!

The first time I became scared at a movie was watching Fantasia, specifically the sorcerer’s apprentice scenes.  I remember being so frightened that the water wasn’t going to stop rising and Mickey would die.  Even now whenever I hear that piece of music by Johann WolfgangGoethe I am taken back to watching Mickey and those uncontrolled magic tricks.

In fact, there are almost too moments of #MyDisneyLife to mention once you start thinking about it and once you have children of your own those magical moments increase exponentially.

When Maxi was born we would sing “biberty-boberty-boo” to him.  He was our much-wanted baby who we felt had been delivered to us by our own fairy godmother and his nursery had pops of Winnie the pooh in there too!

Who hasn’t sang a “spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down” when giving your child medicine.

Disney became our family movies of choice, we introduced the boys to the classics that we had watched as children.  We used our children to watch the movies that missed out on like Toy Story and Monsters Inc.  We then watched as they became obsessed with Mater and Lightning McQueen from Cars.

When the boys were younger Disney junior filled our screen and now it is Disney HD that they watch.


Two years ago we went to Florida with my brother and his family and we had a wail of a time in DisneyLand, the happiest place on earth.   The thing about Disney is it branches generations.  It brings together grandparents and grandchildren.  When we watched Dumbo with my boys they never would have guessed that it was made in 1941.

So you can see it wasn’t going to be long before the Disney Life App was sitting on our iPads and other devices.

    Oh Fantasia also scared me too, but it was “The Rite of Spring” sequence that terrified me! We haven’t actually managed to show WB many of our favourite Disney Classics yet but he does love the more modern ones like Cars and Toy Story 🙂 I remember once talking about fairy tales in a German class and I mentioned that all kids should watch Disney films. The teacher questioned me, saying that they are very different to the original tales they are often based upon, but I think that misses the point – tales are meant to be retold, over and over and over again in ways that reach as many different people as possible, and you cannot question how many people Disney have inspired through the years, can you?

    Oh yes, I’m sure most can relate to a lifetime of Disney memories. We too love all the old movies as well as the new and every little girl at sometime has dreamed of being a Disney Princess.

    That’s the thing about such an immersive family company – you can’t just have one Disney memory – there’s so many! Great post, I enjoyed picturing you singing “biberty-boberty-boo”!!

    I love all things disney. My first film was Bambi and apparently I sobbed through it but I will always remember a trip to the cinema to see Jungle Book. I long to take mine to Disney World


    I hadn’t really thought about it, but Disney has been a big part of my life too. My first film at the cinema was Pinocchio. And now, my daughter is becoming rather obsessed by the Disney Princess thing…I like the way their films and messages evolve over the years.

    Lots of lovely Disney moments! I actually watched Dumbo the other week (on DisneyLife!!) and the pink elephant part is so weird and trippy!

    Ahh Jen such a lovely post and so many wonderful Disney moments. Florida must have been incredible, we hope to take POD there one day when she’s a bit bigger. She would go utterly bananas I’m sure. She’s a huge fan of Disney films so seeing the characters would be something else.
