Happy 60th Birthday Disneyland!
In honor of Disneyland’s 60th birthday, Steffi and I created a questionnaire about our favorite Disney Animated features. The rules are: No repeats, no live action and gifs must be included! We hope you enjoy and thanks again, Disneyland, for being our home. 60 is going to be a good year.
On to the questionnaire!
Walt Era Favorite (1937-1970): The Jungle Book
I grew up watching this movie so many times with my brother. I watched this instead of Cinderella, Pinocchio, and Peter Pan; none of which I had seen up until 5 years ago. It’s no surprise then that me and Steffi bonded so hard over Wanna Be Like You on so many car rides.
Honorable mention: Mary Poppins (there’s animation in it :P)
Lost Years Favorite (1971-1988): Brave Little Toaster
Oh gosh it’s so close between Brave Little Toaster and The Rescuers; though Escape to Witch Mountain was certainly a gem, but that’s live action. I really don’t know which I watched more as a child. I’ll go with Brave Little Toaster. I loved the characters, except the air conditioner, and the premise was so imaginative.
Disney Revival Favorite: (1989-2000): Aladdin
This one changes a lot but, Aladdin. The Genie and the score just make it.
Obvious honorable mentions are obvious.
Present Disney Favorite: (2001-now): Wreck-It-Ralph
This is currently the last Disney movie to give me Disney feels. It was absolutely robbed of its Oscar that year.
Honorable mentions to Finding Nemo, Up, and Meet the Robinsons.
Favorite Animation: 3D digital
Specifically Wall-E. Just gorgeous.
Favorite Score: Tarzan
Hands down, Tarzan. SON OF MAN. Trash the Camp. Phil Collins.
Oops how did that get in there.
Honorable mention to Tangled. Kingdom dance gives me hope. I even made up a flag routine for it. Don’t judge me.
Favorite “Make ya’ laugh”: The Emperor’s New Groove
I watched this almost every day in the summer during middle school. I know the entire film by heart and yes, I will quote the entire thing while watching it. The comedic timing, I can’t deal.
There in no honorable mention.
Favorite “Make ya’ cry”: The Fox and the Hound
I avoided a lot of sad movies when I was younger. I didn’t even enjoy watching The Lion King. For some reason, I was okay with The Fox and the Hound. Maybe because of Big Mama. Or Dinky & Boomer. Or Squeaks.
Honorable mention to Toy Story 3.
Favorite Love Story: Wall-E & Eve
I have a hard time with taking this one too seriously. But no one can deny these two are the cutest.
Favorite Friendship: Marlin & Dory
I would seriously put Ralph & Vanellope here but I already used Wreck-It-Ralph. Top shelf!
But Marlin & Dory because there’s hilarious frustration, stupid sillyness, adventure, and love.
Major honorable mention to Baloo & Bagheera because that is Steffi & I. We almost named our blog after them. Almost.
Favorite Siblings: Lilo & Nani
They. Are. Perfect.
Favorite Pixar: Toy Story
Definitely a childhood fave and classic, there is truly no way I could put anything else in the top spot.
Honorable mentions to Up, Finding Nemo and A Bug’s Life.
Favorite Pixar Short: Geri’s Game
It’s hard to go with any other when Geri’s game exists.
Honorable mention to Partly Cloudy and For the Birds.
Favorite Disney Short: Feast
This one made Grayson tear up. Instant fave.
Most Quoteable: Hercules
There was a time when this was playing on repeat for 2 months in Steffi & I’s apartment. Needless to say we quote it all the time.
Disney Tattoo Ideas: Baby Simba
Me and Steffi had this great idea years ago and I still haven’t let it go.
