On Valentine’s Day my good friend Kirsty over at Cosmetics Beauty Rainbow took part in The Disney Tag, which I only just recently got a chance to read (due to being busy with life, etc) and I decided that today I would give it a go before I head to work. I’m not Disney obsessed, but I do love Disney films. They’re a great pick me up, and I do have my favourites. Of course, I also have a cupboard FULL of Disney mugs! But let’s face it, who doesn’t?
On with the tag!
1. Favourite Disney Film
Definitely Lady and The Tramp. It’s been a favourite since a young age and I don’t know if it’s due to my love for dogs, or because I am a romantic sucker at heart and felt for Lady and Tramp’s love. Either way, it is my favourite. Whenever The Disney Store bring out merchandise based off the film, I always usually pick it up. I currently have my eye on one of the mugs they have out… But MONEY. 😥
2. Favourite Disney Characters
Of course from my answer above, it’s Lady and Tramp. I love how sweet, innocent, and caring Lady is, but I also love how Tramp is the opposite, daring, playful, and a rebel. I used to be like Tramp growing up, and I guess as a child I could relate. BUT going away from Lady and Tramp, I also love Merida from Brave. She knows what she wants, and sure as hell goes for it! I love her as a Disney princess, but I especially love that she’s ginger, AND Scottish. 😛
3. Favourite Disney Princess
Although I just said how I like Merida, my favourite is Pocahontas. She was the first Disney princess that I was brought with as a child. My parents took me to watch it at the cinema, bought me the doll, bought me clothes with her on. I think you get the point! She’s beautiful, smart, caring, and doesn’t give a damn and does what she wants. I’d love to be like her, and I remember as a child wanting the same tattoo as her.
4. Favourite Disney Song
I don’t know if I have one to be honest… I would say Under The Sea because I always sing it in funny situations and add my own lyrics to it. I got really hyper whilst on holiday with my dad and sang something to do with it, but in a sarcastic, and piss taking manner, and it had my dad in stitches. The majority of Disney films I like usually don’t have singing in… So yeah. I don’t really have a favourite, sorry!
5. Which Disney Character would be your best friend?
Merida because I’ve always wanted to learn how to use a bow and arrow, so we could take horse rides into the woods, and she could teach me. 🙂 God I sound like a total loser!
6. Who would be your Disney pet?
Scamp because I would take him out on awesome “wild dog” adventures with Dane and he would love it! I’d also love to have Lucky too, as he’s my favourite puppy from 101 Dalmatians. He’s always getting into trouble, and so damn cute! Him and Scamp would get on really well I think.
7. Have you ever been to Disneyland?
NO! BUT I REALLY WANT TO! I remember talking about it with Dane when we first started going out, but due to money and such at the moment, I doubt that we’ll be able to go anytime soon. I want to go to the one in Paris, as well as the one in Japan. My friend Poppy makes me jealous whenever she goes to Disneyland. I want a pair of BB-8 ears to wear.
8. Who is your Disney alter ego?
I don’t know to be honest… I never really think of things like that! I would like to say my favourite Disney characters, as I find that the way they are reflects who I am a little. Lady is caring, Lucky always gets into trouble (not that I always get into trouble!), Tramp for being brave and adventurous, Pocahontas for being true, honest, and kind, and Merida for standing up for what she believes in, and taking risks.
9. Who is your favourite Disney villain?
Scar! He’s just so sassy and it makes me laugh so damn much! Same for Ursula as well really, she’s a real diva! “The little tramp!” Oh and I can’t forget Hades! He’s just one of the funniest Disney villains I’ve ever watched. In fact, he’s my favourite. If I could be a Disney villian, I’d want to be like him.
10. Which Disney film would you star in, if you could?
I’d want to be a toy in Toy Story, or some sort of Japanese princess. I don’t know what toy I would be… Maybe a plush fox or something? I don’t know.
11. How old were you when you watched your first Disney film?
Erm… I don’t actually know to be honest, probably two or three. It was probably one of the old classics like Pinocchio, or Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs. I do fondly remember as a child though asking my dad to draw pictures of my favourite characters as he was an amazing cartoon drawer. He draw me a picture of Lady, which I know is in the loft somewhere. I loved when my dad did things like that, it felt special and I always remember thinking, “I wish I could draw like daddy.”
12. What do you love about Disney?
I love how the stories are brought to life, and how the characters are all so relate-able in some way or another. I like how for example Inside Out recently touched on depression, that’s really good! I also like how UP did the same sort of thing with loss as well, and how it can affect someone.
13. Who is your favourite Disney couple?
Well, Lady and Tramp of course! Lady, a prim and proper pup from a good background, and Tramp, a womanising stray from a rough background. It’s one of those stories that just go to show that people can change, and that people also deserve a chance. I love that movie so damn much.
So that brings us to the end of this tag! It’s made me realise how much I love Lady and The Tramp to be honest… Even though I already kind of knew that already!
Thanks to Kirsty for taking part in this tag, so that I could! As usual I tag everyone who reads this post to give it a go themselves. Make sure to comment letting me know you’ve done it yourself so I can read it.
Until next time however, take care all and have a great weekend!
