FEATUREdisney princesses

EW has inspired me once again. Darren Franich wrote an article for the magazine, Entertainment Geekly: My Top 100 Disney Things, off the top of my head. In it he discusses how wntrached in our consciousness Disney is and lists the top 100 things that come to his head. Most importantly he stets up a challenge: Make your own Disney top 100.  His requierements: Without resorting to the internet, I tried to make a list of my Top 100 Disney Things: Official Disney-branded movies, TV shows, interactive experiences, whatever, all ranked in the chronological order that they popped into my mind. I am never one to back out of a Disney Challenge so here it goes! ( I made the top 100 list straight.. comentary came later 🙂 )  …FYI this has totally inspired me to do a Disney Songs posts which will come up soon

  51. Up Another Pixar makes me cry entry
  52. Bugs Life I have to be honest, i thought here of the animal kingdom little movie, and that’s how i remembered this movie.
  53. Monsters Inc.
  54. The Incredibles
  55. Cars
  56. Mulan Of the height of Disney’s movies, this was my least favorite!

  63. Alice in Wonderland 
  64. Newsies the movie… Total 80s guilty pleasure with Christian Bale that if you havent watched you should rent and do so!!!!!!
  65. …Newsies the musical Which just got made into a musical on Broadway last season and it is amazing! Love the songs
  66. Animal Kingdom
  67. Disneyland
  68. EuroDisney

  70. Peter Pan 
  71. Haunted Mansion 
  72. Bambi 
  73. The Paperman This was a Disney Animation short film that I have linked previously in this blog. It is beautiful.
  74. Robin Hood 
  75. Camp Rock  So my obsession with the Disney Channel started to come out with lots of entry. This was a pretty “campy” movie (no pun intended) with Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers. IT was a good follow up to the High School Musical franchise with good songs to boot.
  76. Even Stevens Classic 90s disney show, partner to Lizzie Mcguire.
  77. Lemonade Mouth Another entry, Another Disney Channel Made for TV Movie
  78. Jump In mmm …. another entry, Another Disney Channel Made for TV Movie
  79. Wizards of Waverly Place Disney Channel Show – its claim to fame is Sending Selena Gomez to stardom
  80. Sleeping Beauty So i had maleficent in the top 20 and sleeping beauty down here, guess i know where my allegiances lie in this movie. (side note, for those of you who watch Once Upon a Time, I think Sleeping Beauty could be one of the most irritating characters on the show. This list makes me think that it might be because I have always not loved her character!)
  81. Pirates of the Caribbean the ride… This is the classic and a wonderful song!
  82. … All the Pirates of the Caribbean movies But this has Johnny Depp so its hard to choose which one is better
  83. Fantasia Mickey at its finest! One of the most iconic images for me is the blue hat with the silver stars.
  84. Radio Rebel again,another entry, Another Disney Channel Made for TV Movie. I think this one came up because i saw a rerun of it in the Disney Channel 2 days ago.
  85. Alice Tea cups The ride at Magic Kingdom
  86. Mighty Ducks Movies All I know about Hockey i learned from the Mighty Ducks! (star alert… this is Joshua Jackson pre Dawsons Creek’s Pacey)
  87. Scrooge Mc duck
  88. Christmas Carol Mickey’s Christmas Carol is what I was thinking here, not the new movie with the creepy animation
  89. The Princess and the Frog This is a B- movie
  90. Lilo and Stitch Actually never watched this one, but that’s how good Disney marketing is that I know of movies I’ve never watched!
  91. Finding Nemo How is this so low!!!!! i love Nemo and Dory are a classic pair!
  92. Gummi Bears Not the edible kind, but the Disney channel show with the most infectious theme song ever. Total part of my childhood (song below as evidence)
  93. Soaring the Ride Random entry, but it popped up!
  94. Adventure Land
  95. Enchanted Tiki Room
  96. Downtown Disney It houses one of my favorite stores ever – the 25 days of Christmas
  97. On the Record Musical
  98. The Magic Kingdom Parade 
  99. Ratatouille Too low an entry, but it took a while to pop up! This is one of my favorite Pixar movies, and as I had stated in this blog before one of the Best Food Movies 
  100. The Aerosmith Rollercoaster at MGM

so does anybody else take the challenge?
