Welcome to Day 30 of the 30 Day Disney Blogging Challenge! Thank you so much to everybody that has supported me and left kind comments. I had close to 1,500 views which has been so encouraging. I’m truly grateful to you all.
I thought the best way to end this challenge was to reflect on my favourite Disney Classic film of all time. This movie came out the year I was born (1989) and is also the first Disney cartoon I remember seeing. That makes it pretty special! I love all of the songs, the world, the story, the princess, the prince, the villain and the sidekicks. It’s a no-brainer for me. My heart will always belong to…
THE LITTLE MERMAID!
The Little Mermaid was written as a fairy-tale story by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen in 1836. It was adapted over a century later by Walt Disney. It tells the tale of Ariel, a restless 16 year old mermaid yearning to be a part of the human world…
We all know the plot to this movie so I’m not going to write it down. Instead, I would like to share my favourites within my favourite!
WHO IS MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER?
She’s sassy, she’s diabolical, she’s hilarious. If she wasn’t so evil, I would love Ursula as a friend. Can you imagine the shopping trips?
WHAT IS MY FAVOURITE SONG?
‘POOR UNFORTUNATE SOULS’
Click on my previous blog above to see why!
WHAT IS MY FAVOURITE PART?
WHEN VANESSA WALKS ALONG THE BEACH
Even though she is evil, it’s a magical moment. She’s like a Maiden in the Mist.
WHEN ARIEL SINGS ‘PART OF YOUR WORLD’
I couldn’t decide between these two scenes so I added them both! I am not ashamed to admit this is my favourite song to sing whilst driving/showering. Can you believe it was nearly cut?!
WHAT IS THE SADDEST PART?
WHEN KING TRITON DESTROYS ARIEL’S GROTTO
I always cry when I see Ariel sob on the rock. You can even see the remorse on King Triton’s face.
WHICH PART IS THE MOST ROMANTIC?
‘KISS THE GIRL’
This song is all about setting the romantic mood. Those willow trees!
WHAT IS MY FAVOURITE QUOTE?
“CHILDREN HAVE GOT TO BE FREE TO LIVE THEIR OWN LIVES…”
Such a wise little crab!
WHICH PART MAKES ME HAPPIEST?
WHEN ARIEL BECOMES A HUMAN FOR GOOD
I love her beautiful dress and the way she runs toward Prince Eric…
There you have it. The Little Mermaid is my favourite Disney Classic of all time. It’s practically perfect in every way.
What Disney Classic is your favourite? Why? I would love to hear all about it.
Beauty and the Beast
Thank you for everything. What an amazing 30 Day Blogging Challenge. There is nothing better than writing about a dear passion. Next year I will be doing another 30/31 Day Challenge (I have not yet decided which month) and the theme will be:
Stay tuned and I’ll see you tomorrow for my April Favourites of 2017.
Peace & Love xoxo
