Emily Does the Disney Tag!

Getting hugs from the sweetest mouse in the world.

Getting hugs from the sweetest mouse in the world.

If you know me, or have been following me for any amount of time, you know that saying I'm a massive Disney fan is the understatement of the century. Everything about it just makes me feel... at home. That's why I've taken this random tag from the interwebs (credit to whoever thought 'er up) and answered some questions. Forgive any errors, it's 3am.

1) Favorite Character

Peter Pan, I've read the book so many times I've lost count, nearly worn out the VHS, and used to leave notes for Peter at my window as a child.

2) Favorite Princess

Tiana! But I do love Mulan, Jasmine, and Ariel as well!

3) Favorite Heroine

I love, love, love Elizabeth Swann from the Pirates franchise. What a badass. Kida from Atlantis is up there as well.

4) Favorite Prince

Aladdin, all the way. But Eric is a total babe too.

5) Favorite Hero

I'm gonna go with Hercules on this one.

6) Favorite Animal

All of the Aristocats, Simba, and Lady. Oh shit, and Mr. Big from Zootopia.

7) Favorite Sidekick

Only number 7 and the questions are already killing me. Probably Pascal because I love chameleons (lizards in general), and he's freakin' adorable. Honorable mentions go to Genie, Mushu, and the dynamic duo that is Timon & Pumbaa.

8) Favorite Villain

Probably Hades -- I've never really felt a connection to any of the villains (that's a good thing, right?), but the god of the underworld got jokes. I also like Dr. Facilier. How about my least favourite villain though, huh? Nobody's asking, but that would Madam Mim. I know she's only in the movie for, like, 5 minutes, but to this day she still scares the shit out of me.

9) Favorite Original Character (Minnie, Mickey, Goofy, etc)

I guess Mickey, because he's the lil dude that started it all.

10) Favorite Love Song

"A Whole New World". I'm. Obsessed. Second place goes to, "You'll Be in My Heart". Third is “I See the Light”.

11) Favorite Song

Um, how dare you? There are so, so many, but I can't help but sing along AND feel inspired to work out when "I'll Make a Man Out of You" comes on, so for the sake of giving a solid answer, there ya go. If we’re being wishy-washy, I love the Tarzan soundtrack and the Princess and the Frog soundtrack.

12) Favorite Villain Song

"Mother Knows Best" or "Poor Unfortunate Souls".

13) Least Favorite Song

Honestly, I'm not a fan of any of the songs from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

14) Favorite Kiss

Tiana and Prince Naveen!!!

15) The First Movie You Saw

Not a clue, but if I were to take an educated guess I would assume my mom showed them to be in chronological order, so likely Snow White. If not, then probably The Artistocats.

16) Favorite Classic

If we're talkin' animated then obviously Peter Pan, if we're talkin' live action then Swiss Family Robinson.

17) Song that always gets stuck in your head

"How Far I'll Go" and "You're Welcome". Every. Single. Time.

18) Favorite Pixar Film

A Bug's Life!!!!!!!!!!!! I was the weird kid who had a crush on Flik.

19) Least Favorite Pixar Film

Wall-E. He's a lil cutie, but I couldn't finish it.

20) Favorite Sequel

The Lion King: Simba's Pride hands down.

21) Overrated Movie

I know I should say Frozen, but I'm saying Alice in Wonderland.

22) Underrated Movie

For this one, I was trying to think of films that it's impossible to find merch for, and I've noticed that they've started putting some of these characters on shirts, but I'd love to see more stuff with The Fox and the Hound.

23) Movie That Makes You Laugh

All of them?

24) Movie That Makes You Cry

Also all of them?

25) The Saddest Scene From Your Favorite Movie

The ending.

26) Saddest Death

Mufasa and Ray!

27) Favorite Quote

I'm not so much a fan of the movie (though I do love the actual place) but in The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Quasimodo says, "Today is a good day to try," and I think that's an excellent motto for anyone battling a mental illness.

28) Favorite Theme Park

I've only ever been to the OG Disneyland, but I honestly don't think any others could compare. It's where the magic all began.

29) Favorite Theme Attraction

Indiana Jones, Pirates, the Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, or Splash Mountain! In DCA, I love Grizzly River Run, Tower of Terror (RIP), and California Screamin' (RIP).

30) Favorite Theme Park Show

I love both the Paint the Night Parade and the Soundsational Parade. When my friend and I were in Disney for 2 weeks straight, we watched Paint the Night every. single. day. Still not sick of it. It also has my favourite Owl City song.
