Top 10 Disney Movies You Have Probably Loved All Through Adulthood

Top 10 Disney Movies You Have Probably Loved All Through Adulthood

The fairy tales we all grew up with.

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 Final Season of 'Game Of Thrones'

I'm excited and sad all at the same time.

***** SPOILER ALERT*****

Now that it's upon us I don't know if I'm ready.

Does everyone remember what happened last season or are you like me and doing the GOT binge before the series finale?

I just finished season 1 and I'm starting in season 2 because if I'm going to binge it I'm going to do it the right way it's going to be from the beginning, besides who gets tired of watching Joffrey die?

My burning question that I'm sure EVERYONE wants to know is who will be on the throne in the end? Will it be Daenerys or Jon? I have my speculations or who I would rather see win.

Jon should rule. He was born of Fire and Ice. His father being Rheagar Targaryen and his mother Lyanna Stark. Fire and Ice. Then again, there are the stories that were told to Cersei when she was a young girl by the witch that there would be a girl prettier than her to rule. Does that mean Dani (AKA Daenerys)?

Or will she rule beside Jon? Will the two of them be a couple and rule the Kingdoms together? I'm dying to know! But these two characters are not my only focus at the end of the Final Season.

Where will Bran wind up with his abilities? What about Arya? Will she remain in Winterfell to be Sansa's executioner? Will she leave and go to King's landing if Jon takes the throne?

My time with Game of Thrones has been brief because I came in late on the show, probably season 4, I'm not sure, but I've poured over so much research, reading through the wiki pages online to reading actual books printed after the series began. It's a vast and intriguing subject.

What am I going to with my life once the season ends? There will be a hole in my heart were GOT once was. The fans of this show no matter who they root for will be crying at the end because someone's favorite is more likely to die than to live through the whole show.

If I could choose to put anyone on the Throne it would be Jon. He is honest and just like Eddard Stark raised all his children to be. He would technically be the ruler that all the faithful Targaryen supporters have been looking for. A Dragon to sit on the throne again. but, so would Dani.

Some wonder if she would go mad like her father because she can learn that way in some of her rulings. Like at Veas Dothrak, she killed all the men and took the women for her followers. Was that really necessary? She's a strong woman like Cersei but when compared there is a huge line that divides the two.

Both are loved and hated but honestly, I don't think that either of them belongs on the Throne. As for the rest, I am looking forward to seeing the way that it plays out. I have heard a rumor that George R. R. Martin has given the answer to who sits on the Throne of Iron.

Games of Thrones will truly be mourned in my house after it ends but I'm excited, to say the least for the Final Season.
