Things Millennials Who Are Slightly Obsessed With Disney Know

Things Millennials Who Are Slightly Obsessed With Disney Know

Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional~ Walt Disney

I'm just one of millions of millennials who grew up with Disney. I became passionate about Disney, as many of us do. Disneyland is like our home, we know that Disney owns Pixar -- so technically Pixar is Disney, we have a favorite prince and princess, and we can all pretty much agree that Snow White was pretty dumb and had annoying voice, and that there should be a ride in one of the parks based on The Emperor's New Groove. Most of us hate the new dresses. We know our secret facts about Disney and are proud. So, like they used to say... And now our feature presentation!

1. We've seen basically all the movies.

And if we haven't, we will watch immediately.

2. We rock at Disney Scene-It.

It puts our knowledge to the test, but it almost hurts you when someone gets an easy question wrong...

3. We can sing almost all the songs.

And we get really into it...

4. We all got an autograph book at Disneyland/world at least ONCE.

Even if it was when you were 5, you still got one.

5. Most girls dreamed of becoming a Disney princess at Disneyland/world.

The idea of becoming our favorite princess and being her all day, seemed like the most ideal job in the world -- until you learned about what it takes to become one.

6. We love the shorts.

The animated mini-shorts that is!

7. All long hair is either Ariel or Rapunzel hair.

And there is a difference!

8. Speaking of Ariel, we've all done this in the pool.

9. We know "Anastasia" isn't a Disney Movie.

It's still good, but not Disney, and we'll make sure to correct you.

10. We all slightly wanted to be a host of Disney 365.

Remember when Chester was a host?

11. Or be on Disney Channel in general.

We all practiced air drawing the mouse ears in the mirror.

12. We love looking for hidden Mickey's everywhere.

It's so awesome finding Mickey in movies, shows, the parks, etc.

13. Also things from one movie in another.

Find a stuffed Nemo in Monster's Inc. These are called Easter Eggs.

14. We know that certain Pixar movies didn't need a sequel...

Cars, we're looking at you.

15. But we also waited long for the ones that were needed.

The Incredibles 2, Finding Dory...these were much needed.

16. We love the classic Disney shows.

"Hannah Montana," "That's So Raven," "Phil of the Future," "Lizzie McGuire," "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody." We even miss the animated ones -- "Kim Possible," "Lilo and Stitch," "Recess."

17. And DCOMs...

"High School Musical," "Zenon," "Halloweentown," "The Cheetah Girls," "My Date with the President's Daughter," "The 13th Year," "Johnny Tsunami," "Cadet Kelly," and the list goes on... Good DCOM movies slow down after 2010.

18. We don't quite understand the appeal in the new shows...

They all have someone who's smart, who's sporty, who sings/dances/act- the shows are about the same...Also, why do they all wear heels and look super fashionable in high school? Gravity Falls was amazing, though.

19. We're still patiently waiting for these shows to appear on Netflix.

If they want their rating to skyrocket, this would be it... Just waiting for Disney to give the O-K.

20. We're still salty over the closing of the Tower of Terror.

Was that really necessary? RIP.

21. The Disney store is still a magical place to go into.

I might be one of the only adult customers in a store full of 6-year-olds, but I don't care.

22. We still get excited over new Disney movies.

Moana, here I come!

23. We know Disney does their research.

People like to think they whitewash, but most of the stories are based off old fairy tales. They make their race in accordance to the time and place of the story.

24. The original stories are much more gruesome.

They never turn out how they were originally told...

25. There's a bunch of hidden treasures in the parks.

More hidden Mickey's, hidden clubs...I've even heard that on the Mark Twain Riverboat, if you ask nicely they might let you steer the boat.

26. We know all the design secrets and behind the scenes makings of the movies.

Did you know they changed the animation system so they could make Rapunzel's hair? Or that they made each and every one of Sully's hairs in the second movie?

27. We dream of going to all the parks around the world.

I'm traveling around the world solely to go to the parks.

28. We can quote Disney lines easier than the things we learn in school.

We know the one-liners best, but know almost all the lines to our favorite movies.

29. Girls wish for Disney princess hair.

This hair is unnatural.

30. We need to be with someone who loves Disney as well.

We just need someone who we can geek out with.

31. Girls dream of having a guy look at them they way guys look at girls in the movie.

32. We know our love for the industry will never die.

We know we'll take our kids there, watch all the movies with them, and will want to grow old with someone like in UP.

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs to Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

Dance Marathon Helped Me Understand What It Is That I Stand For

What do you stand for?


The weekend of March 1, 2019, I stood for over 20 hours for the kids. Yep, I am not lying.

Dance Marathon at FSU is a 40-hour event split into two shifts of 20 hours. My freshman year, I earned sit times throughout the marathon, which I was incredibly thankful for, but this year was something totally different. I was on the internal team this year, which means, I worked behind the scenes of Dance Marathon since September. Since I was on the internal team, I did not get the opportunity to get the set times that I did the year prior. I was worried about this because I was not sure if I would be able to do it.

Spoiler Alert! I did it.

There were many times during the marathon where I thought that I could not stand much longer, but then some thoughts came into my mind. Who was I standing for? I was standing for the kids who had to get their leg amputated because they had osteosarcoma and could no longer stand on both legs. I was standing for the kids who are bound to their hospital beds right at this very moment because they are not strong enough to walk on their own. I was standing for the children who needed me to help them win their fight.

This is what kept me standing. This motivated me so much that I did not complain once because I knew who I was doing it for, and I was not going to let them down.

There were multiple people who kept complaining. Every word out of their mouth was about how their feet hurt, or how they were so tired. A large part of me wanted to turn to them and tell them, "Do you know how tired Grayson was when he had to have his many rounds of chemotherapy when he was just one-year-old?" I did not say that to them because I realized something. I knew what and who I was standing for, but maybe they didn't. My goal this year is to help all of those people understand WHY they are doing it.

20 hours on your feet may seem like a long time, but to watch $2,210,165.21 go up at the end, nothing compares.

Like the musical group Fun. once sang, "What do I stand? What do I stand for?" To that, I say, "I stand for the kids."
