This weeks theme is Disney Firsts!
My First Disney Movie
I have no idea what my first Disney movie was! :P But after chatting to my mum, turns out it was Fantasia! I was around 4 years old at the time, my papa bought me Fantasia on vhs and my mum said it was probably too old for me ... but apparently I loved it! And I still do :) I'm sure everyone knows, but it's such a beautiful and original piece of Disney animation - one of the best! :)
I had to ask my mum about this too! My first Disney toy was a Mickey Mouse - I don't have it any more but she says it was real similar to this one I have now :)
First Disney Game
Aladdin was my first Disney video game! I had this on Super Nintendo!
This game is definitely childhood-defining for me :P It brings back so many happy memories! :) 'Inside the Genies Lamp' was definitely one of the best levels!
And there was also an adorable bonus level with Aladdin and Jasmine on the flying carpet with "A Whole New World" playing - Nintendo style! :P
In short ... you can tell I loved this game ... a lot! :P
First Disney Trip
This one is tricky ... my first trip to Disneyland Paris was during its opening year in 1992 when I was only 5 years old :) but to be honest, I don't remember much about it! There aren't that many photos or anything either :( Though I do have a keyring to prove I was there! :)
One thing I do remember quite well was the Main Street Electrical Parade!
The song still gives me goosebumps! And if I close my eyes ... I totally feel 5 again! ^.^ I remember gazing up at Pete's Dragon (which is maaassiiiive for a 5yo!) and being in absolute awe ... and then jumping when smoke blasted from his nostrils! I have some other vague memories from my first ever trip, but I wanna write about them in a future, more detailed post :)
Thanks for stopping by! :) Happy Thursday everyone!
