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.

12 Signs You're Addicted To Grey's Anatomy


Oh, "Grey’s Anatomy." We have been through so much together. Through the years, we have taken on bombs, shooters, plane crashes, and everything in between. You have loyally stood by me even when I hated you for killing off my favorite characters, or making Merideth and Derek break up. I know that some people may read this and call me crazy, but the real Grey’s fandom can relate. We are the most dedicated group of people you will ever find, almost to the point of insanity…or definitely to the point of insanity. Thinking of diagnosing yourself with Grey's-o-mania? If you meet these 12 criteria, time to strap on your surgical mask and scrub in because you are addicted.

Disclaimer: Spoilers ahead!

1. It has made you want to become a surgeon.

You are lying if all of the drama and medical lingo hasn’t made you consider changing your major at least once.

2. It has also made you NOT want to become a surgeon.

...but then there is all of the blood and the long hours.

3. You compare every guy you meet to Derek Shepherd.

The biggest mystery in all of "Grey’s" is how Meredith took so long to put a ring on that?! I mean, c’mon girl.

4. Hearing the names “Lexie” or “George” may result in an emotional breakdown.

These deaths left us with an open wound that even Mark Sloan’s sutures couldn’t repair.

5. You feel personally attacked every time a character is killed off.

Please refer to #4.

6. You feel like you could actually perform neurosurgery.

I have watched Derek clip so many aneurisms, I could do it in my sleep. Hand me a scalpel and sign me up for a clinical trial, I am ready.

7. You even sat through the musical episode.

Owen Hunt singing around the OR? A little too awkward for most people.

8. Your iTunes library is filled with songs from the show.

“How To Save a Life” by The Fray brings on all kinds of new feels now.

9. The new interns have to prove themselves to you.

Every couple of seasons, they decide to throw us a new crop of interns. This fandom is just as tough as Dr. Bailey when we decide whether these characters have what it takes for "Grey’s Anatomy" though.

10. When a friend is sick, your first thought is to start chest compressions.

After 11 seasons, I am fully prepared for all medical situations. Push one of Epi! We need a crash cart!

11. You have an immediate bond with anyone who says they watch the show.

…Did we just become best friends?

12. You frequently ask yourself “what would Christina Yang do?”

No major decision should EVER be made without asking this first. Of all of the people who have left "Grey’s," her absence is the most strongly felt. No one can replace Christina Yang.

The Breath of Solitude

A Poem With A Prologue // Polar Viewpoints.



She smacks your parted lips,

sucking the dry,

open cracks to a seal.

Pumping energy into your chest

and sending a continuous shiver

from lung to navel.

You can't help but cough,

as your lungs tighten and twist.

Ringing the frosty sensation out –

slipping through your parted lips.

The same parted lips that

allowed her deliberate fingers

to crawl inside

where she can escape her own dimension

of solitude.

The Breath of Solitude

All I know

is solitude.

We chat

every day

in conversations that circulate

behind the backs

of the present.

Solitude grinds my coffee beans,

as we sit

with our legs crossed,

waiting for dawn

to explode over our opaque landscape.

Solitude runs my bath,


as the Sun crashes

against the diminishing horizon.

But none of this is reality.

I am above

the dimension of reality.

Not theoretically,

but physically.

I am only a tool

to be used in the dimension

of your reality.

Drifting in and out,

twirling through your negative space.

My only purpose

is found through your breath;

but what do I do

when you stop breathing?

I wait for your fingers,

less deliberate than mine,

but filled with that

that I lack.

I cannot see the blood

that sloshes through the veins

in your innocent hands.

The blood that energizes

those fingers

upon which I wait.

But I know

the blood is there.

It isn't

what you do.

It isn't

the way you move.

Simply put,

it is

the way

that you exist.

The sheer fact

that you have a bursting burgundy waterfall


not only through your fingers,

but engulfing all of you

in its rich,



The only waterfall

that I encompass

is the waterfall

that you imagine.

I have no blood;

I have no way to exist.

And so I

wait for your fingers,

less deliberate than mine,

but filled with that

that I lack.

I wait for your fingers

to filter the heat

to a state of regulation,

a state of production,

a state in which I can exist.

The peach fuzz

that sleeps on the bridge of your nose

begins to rise

when your fingers initiate the flame.

The temperature reacts,

as would my heartbeat,

if I had a bursting burgundy waterfall,

or some type of life source

inhabiting my chest cavity.

As the heat

starts to melt

my metaphorical skin,

I become reality.

I don't have a face to smile,

or eyes to produce tears.

But I have thoughts.

I have words to say,

I have feelings to express.

I still can only drift,

in and out,

twirling through your negative space,

but now spiraling

into your positive space,

as well.
