A Basic Disney Tag

I did have a more serious, in-depth Disney discussion post planned for today but I still want to work on it a bit, so here, have a tag! It's been a while since I've posted any tags at all which is weird for me (this was the last one) and although I think I've obviously done this one in the past, it's deffo been a while. Here is a basic Disney tag!

1. Favourite Disney Film?
Well, let's just say that any so-called 'Disney fan' who can narrow down literally hundreds of movies from 1937 to present day and choose just one favourite, needs some kind of award.
As always my choices change each time I'm asked (the ones below will probably change by the time the post goes up) but as of now here are some -
Animated Classic - Brother Bear
Pixar - A Bugs Life
L/A pre-1959 - So Dear to My Heart 
L/A 1960-89 - Pollyanna
L/A 1990-2010 - Homeward Bound
L/A last 5 years - Tomorrowland

2. Favourite Animated Disney Character?
The one I have the most merch of is the one and only, main man Mickey but I also have adored Oswald for the past 9ish years.

3. Favourite Disney Princess?
Snow White!! It upsets me the amount of hate she gets because I think she's fantastic. As a child, I think it was Ariel as we were both red-heads. I also want to mention Princess Mia Thermopolis from the Princess Diaries as she is technically still a 'Disney Princess' just not an animated one. How couldn't anyone love her?!

4. Favourite Disney Side-kick?
Timothy Mouse, Jiminy Cricket and the White Rabbit from Wonderland. I love Timothy and Jiminy's roles in their title characters story and with the rabbit, I just relate to his frantic-ness he's a rabbit <3

5. Favourite Disney Song?
 I dunno if it's my all-time fave, but the one that is usually stuck in my head is Prince Ali! I also am a huge fan of Substitutiary Locomotion and A Spoon Full Of Sugar.

6. Which Disney character would be your best friend?
Whoever could put up with me! ha. Hmmm, Jack the Monkey from POTC? Or maybe Arlo from the Good Dinosaur. It'd most likely be the birds from Snow White though seeing as I have them tattooed on my chest and am already the biggest bird-nerd I know.

7. Who would be your Disney pet?
Flubber. lol! Tod from The Fox and the Hound though really. Not that I recommend foxes as pets in normal circumstances.

8. Have you ever been to Disneyland?
Nope! I'll never get to go probably because I don't fly anymore. I'm not too bothered as I love Disneyland Paris and my visits there are way more than satisfactory.  I'd love to go purely just to do the in Walts Footsteps tour but other than that I'm not super fussed!

9. Who is your Disney Alter Ego?
Ah, I'm not too sure with this one. You tell me!

10. Who is your favourite Disney villain?
Captain Hook! He's the least evil and he doesn't cause/wish harm to animals! His evil-ness is one of the most comical of all the villians. Plus...pirates...

11. Do you collect anything Disney wise?
Do I collect anything Disney wise?! Of course not!! I only have around 300 DVDs, 50 books and I have no idea how many soft toys. I also collect specific pins relating to my experiences - so what year I go to DLP, which hotel I stay at etc. There are a few (read: many) other bits all over the house from shoes and clothes to kitchen and homeware, stationary, artwork, photo frames, magnets..pretty much anything except vinyal figures/tsum tsums and collectable figures.
(You can check out my - now rather outdated -  My Disney Media Collection here!)

12. What Disney film would you star in if you could?
Pirates of the Carribean. Any of them! They are so fun and action packed, shooting them must be amazing. I'd do my own stunts too :P haha

13. How old were you when you watched your first Disney film?
Probably 0? I remember watching The Little Mermaid VHS' that had episodes of a show on and obviously The Lion King because I took my Simba teddy everywhere with me, but there were most certainly ones before.

14. What do you love about Disney?
How long do you have? That could be a post all of it's own...maybe it is...I can't remember. I don't want to go on too much really but the man, the company and the place are a gigantic part of my life. A light at the end of many a dark tunnel, a friend when I have none, inspiration and motivation to be the best person I can be and much, much more.
Have a peek at this post if you fancy - In Dedication To An Inspiration: Walt Disney

15. Who is your favourite Disney couple?
Walt and Lillian ;) Happy Birthday for yesterday Mr Dis <3

It was pretty fun re-answering these basic Disney questions, I hope you enjoyed it and maybe learnt something about me. If you've done this before pop me a link in the comments.
See allll my tag posts here!


  1. Loved reading this post Danielle, your love for Disney just shines through with each of these. I completely agree with your answer for the film you'd want to be in. POTC is loads of fun and I love the scenery in those films. I think Ariel is definitely one of my favourite princesses but I love Mulan too. Always enjoy these tag posts! - Tasha

    1. Ah thank you very much :)
      Yes I love Mulan and Pocahontas too! And Tiana!
