Let’s Watch a Movie

It’s a sentence said so often in our house, particularly through the Winter when it’s cold, wet & grey outside. I’m sure most people have heard it said or said it themselves at least once in their lifetime. It’s tricky to choose a movie sometimes when there are 4 people with their own choices & opinions on what movie to watch. But more often than not you can bet on it that at least one Disney movie will be suggested. Often we will come back from our holiday and will want to binge watch as much Disney as possible, to just keep the magic feeling alive a little bit longer.

That’s when it starts to get easier, but we still ask ‘animated or live action?’ ‘Disney or Pixar?’. Some movies are all time favorites, like Toy Story, Wreck-It Ralph and Beauty & the Beast (both the animated & live action versions). Other movies are just fun to watch sometimes as a family, like Cars, Peter Pan or Descendants. One thing is for sure though, whichever movie gets chosen we know it’s going to be entertaining and fill us with the feeling of Disney magic for a few more hours.

We all settle down with a few crisps & sweets in our set of really cute Mickey popcorn buckets that we bought in Walt Disney World a few years ago. Then when we’re all comfortable we put the chosen movie on. You will usually find at least one of us singing along to any songs throughout the movie and then the songs get stuck in our heads for days afterwards.

Everyone I know in real life knows how much I love Disney and I do sometimes get asked what my favorite Disney movie is. Every time I get asked that question I find it so hard to answer because when a new movie comes out it obviously is at the forefront of my mind.Β  I think if I had to choose, I would have to go with Beauty and the Beast. Just don’t ask me if I prefer the animated or live action movie, because I really don’t think I would be able to answer that! Why this movie is my favorite is a story for another day πŸ™‚


I’d love to know about other people’s movie nights & what their favorite movie is if anybody would like to comment.

  1. My wife and I love Disney and we have two little girls to watch them with. My oldest daughter, Blair, watched Moana in theaters when it first came out. It’s always been one of our favorites. She’s now into Tangled and Wreck It Ralph

    1. The song in Moana will go down as an all time great, our daughters love it! Tangled is definitely up there as one of my favourites and Wreck It Ralph is one of my husband’s favourites. He’s always asking to watch it : )
