What’s Your Disney Moment?

My social networking sites are exploding with clips from Frozen – especially videos of the hit song, “Let It Go.” I’ve been steadily refraining from watching these tempting clips since I haven’t seen the movie yet – but dying to.
It seems to be a unanimous consensus that Frozen is as good as Beauty and the Beast and Lion King. Is that true? But particularly, “Let It Go” is evidently quite the showstopper, and from what I’ve read, people all over the world are affected by it.
It got me thinking about my most favorite Disney moments.
Being a Disnerd – did I make that up, or has it already been coined? – I had a plethora of such moments to sift through:
* Up‘s opening sequence.
* The ballroom scene in Beauty and the Beast.
* The last playtime scene or the incinerator scene in Toy Story 3.
* The first glimpse of the dwarves’ mine in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
* Getting the key upstairs in Cinderella.
* The last scene in Wreck-It Ralph.
But it all boils down to one all-time favorite scene in all Disney movies I’ve seen that I cherish the most:
The opening sequence of Toy Story.
Because those first few minutes tell you that the world may be a scary place, but when you’re home, everything is alright. When you go see Toy Story for the first time, you know it’s about toys coming to life, but for those first few minutes of the movie, you can sense that they’re real even before they come to their life.
It’s one of those things I can watch over and over and over and will never get bored of it.
When you put in Toy Story, everything becomes right in the world. And for 80 minutes, you’re safe.
