Top 10 Disney Movies You Have Probably Loved All Through Adulthood

As a kid growing up, you wanted nothing more than to believe in fairytales and that all stories have happy endings. Unfortunately, you eventually learn that you may never meet your prince, the beast is still a beast, and that animals will never talk. These revelations may be sad, but Disney has always made sure to keep that little child alive in all of us. For nearly a century Disney has been making movies that anyone and everyone, from a child to an adult, can sit and enjoy and revel in the happily ever after’s.

My task for this article is to list the top 10, which is not an easy task so here goes:

1. "The Lion King"

This seems to be a big one to most people. Unfortunately, I have not seen it but maybe someday I’ll watch little Simba on his adventures.

2. "Cinderella"


Who doesn’t love Cinderella? From the wicked Step-Mother and Step-Sisters to the Fairy God Mother and even little Gus-Gus the chubby little mouse who was always falling behind. Its your classic rags to riches love story and I’m a sucker for a classic.

3. "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"

Snow White and Prince Charming

You can’t not like "Snow White." It was Disney’s first animated film and came out in 1937! The movie that gave “true loves kiss” it’s fame. The power of true loves kiss can break any spell and that it did when prince charming woke Snow White from her slumber.

4. "Fantasia"

Micky Mouse Fantasia

Okay, I’ll admit that still to this day I don’t know what this movie was all about, but I always enjoy it. Lots of music and lots of excitement, its hard not to enjoy.

5. "Frozen"

Ana and Elsa in Frozen

So, I have to throw so new school into this list. At first, I hadn’t this movie but then it grew on me and you can’t tell me that "Let it Go" and "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman" were not stuck in your head for weeks. As annoying as some aspects are it is really a cute movie.

6. "The Little Mermaid"

The Little Mermaid Ariel

When I was little my niece and I used to watch this movie, and the sequel, all the time. Ariel’s natural curiosity and then saving the boat crashed prince from drowning drew me in. Add in evil Ursula who wants Ariel’s beautiful voice and the funny little sea lobster Sebastian, and you have movie magic, well for an eight-year-old at least.

7. "Tangled"


The moment I saw this movie I fell in love with it. Then you have the ending when Flynn makes the ultimate sacrifice to save Rapunzel and it just melted my heart. As always, a happy ending with the bad guy, or rather girl, being defeated.

8. "Peter Pan"

Peter Pan

I feel like every kid wanted to be a lost boy at one point or another. No parents, no rules, no responsibilities, just freedom. Everyone wanted to fly with Peter with the help of pixie dust and everyone wanted to defeat that mean old Captain Hook who just couldn’t seem to catch that dang crocodile.

9. "Toy Story"

So technically this is Pixar, but since Disney owns Pixar we are going with it. If you didn’t like "Toy Story," then you just simply aren’t human. We all felt bad for Woody when Andy got Buzz, and then all felt bad for Jesse when she was just abandoned. These toys were ours as well as Andy’s growing. Although I feel like we all watched our toys a little more closely after watching this movie.

10. "The Princess and the Frog"

The Princess and the Frog

The first African-American "princess." All she wanted to do was own a restaurant to make her father proud but ended up a frog because she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. It wasn’t all bad though because she ended up falling in love and getting that restaurant and getting the happily ever after she never thought she would.

This list is all my own opinion and does not mean I don’t like all the other Disney movies. As you know there are so many movies I couldn’t possibly make an accurate list but never the less here is what I think. And just remember you are never too old for Disney. Let that inner child out to play every now and again.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
