Disclosure: I am participating in a blog post campaign from One2One Network and Walt Disney Records. All opinions are my own.



One of the many perks of being a parent means you get to act like a kid again, whether it’s playing dress-up, building a fort, or having a tea party. It also means, you get to relive all your favorite Disney movies that you loved so much as a child.

As a child, I can remember watching my favorite Disney movies over and over again, memorizing every word, every song, every detail. Convinced the flowers would sing back, I’d lay by the garden singing “All in the Golden Afternoon” from Alice in Wonderland. Mary Poppins always reminded me that when I was sick, having to take medicine was just “A Spoonful of Sugar.” Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs literally taught me how to whistle by singing “Whistle While You Work.”

These and other Disney musical classics like Bambi’s “Little April Shower,” Cinderella’s “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes,” Peter Pan’s “You Can Fly! You Can Fly! You Can Fly!” Sleeping Beauty’s “Once Upon A Dream,” and 101 Dalmations’s “Cruella DeVil” all bring back fun and loving memories from my childhood. These songs and my other favorites like Jungle Book’s “The Bare Necessities,” The Aristocats’ “Ev’rybody Wants to be a Cat,” Robin Hood’s “Whistle Stop,” The Rescuers’ “Someone’s Waiting for You,” and The Fox and the Hound’s “Best of Friends,” have proved just how big of an impact they’ve had in my life.



I remember major events from my childhood from Disney’s songs. I can remember having to get my tonsils out and as they were waiting for my medication to kick in, asked me to sing a song. The Little Mermaid’s “Under the Sea” was the last song I sang before going under.

Sure as a parent, watching our children’s shows over and over again can get a bit rough, but not when it comes to Disney classics. It tends to be a role reversal in our home, with my children telling me it’s time to turn Aladdin, Lady and the Tramp, The Nightmare Before Christmas or Pocahontas off.

Remembering every word to these songs over 25 years later has allowed me to share and create new memories with my children. Now as they memorize these same songs, we’re able to not only sing together, but create memories that they’ll look back on. Having children of their own someday, they’ll be able to teach them the same great songs I taught them. Disney has not just made an impact on my family, but families everywhere. Families who create their own special memories.

Disney has helped to shape the world of movie music and is now giving everyone the chance to be a part of something magical. What better time than now, with the holiday season coming up, to own a piece of Disney music history with the Disney Classics Box Set!!!
