A real Disney Top 10
Wednesday, February 07, 2007
Steve’s top 10 list of Disney movies did prompt me to provide my input on this very important subject. I’ve included my top 11 since I really had problems narrowing the list this far. You will notice a couple of themes in the list – princesses and animals.

11. Finding Nemo (2003) – Who couldn’t love a movie about fish and the story behind the movie is really touching.

10. The Lion King (1994) – Another animal movie, this one makes me cry every time. But most Disney movies do.

9. Monsters Inc. (2001) – This movie is really fun.

8. 101 Dalmations (1961) – Here we go with the animals again.

7. The Aristocats (1970) – More animals – and Marie (the girl kitten) could be a princess.

6. Toy Story (1995) – This movie came out when I was still working for Sun Microsystems. Since they provided the computer equipment for producing the movie, and this was also back in the dot com heyday we had a huge party at work. So in addition to being a great movie, I got half a day off.

5. Mary Poppins (1964) – A Disney classic. I also love movies (or really anything) with costumes and dancing.

4. Lady and the Tramp (1955) – This time it’s puppy dogs with a great story.

3. Sleeping Beauty (1959) – Sleeping Beauty is one of my favorites. A classic princess movie and also ballet. Have I mentioned I have tickets to this ballet and it doesn’t look like Russian accreditation and travel will get in my way (not that this would stop me in the slightest). Yippee.

2. Peter Pan (1953) – One of my favorite characters Tinker Bell is in this one. You can’t help but love the pixie with the pout.

1. Cinderella (1950) – I love love love this movie. It’s the classic princess movie. I’m also a princess addict – I’ll admit that. My phone ringer is the Cinderella song, my Kleenex box at work has princesses on it, who knew there was so much princess stuff. I think everyone underestimates how hard it really is to be a princess.

Honorable Mention – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – an extraordinary effort for a princess to manage living with seven men.

    I love your list. You must be hoping for a little girl to pass on the princess love. I'm surprised Princess Diaries didn't make the list.
    I'll play along with you. Here's my Top 9 (in no order):
    Cars, Chicken Little, Flight of the Navigator, Monsters Inc, Mulan, Sky High, Beauty and the Beast, Princess Diaries, Cinderella.

    Princess Diaries (the first one, not the second) almost made the list. It actually took me a couple of days to come up with the final list since it was so hard to narrow them down.

    Hey I love your blog. Great sense of humor and lots of useful info on your blog as well. Great stuff. I really like all the inspirational quotes as well.

    On my adoption blog I have "Gratitude Fridays" every Friday. You may enjoy seeing that.

    Again, kudos on your great blog.

    I am glad your car seats arrived and that you like them. Note that the one I had for Stefanie cost $12.00 this one is a lot different and I know a lot safer. However think what it was like when parents just put the kid on the seat and drove off.
    Also Stefanie I liked your list of 10(11) favorite movies. I am learning a lot about both of you through your blog.
    My favorite movie is "Gone With The Wind" which is also the favorite movie of the majority of the people in my age group.
    Love, Mother
