OK- we are so tardy to the party on this it’s ridiculous, but can we talk about Frozen? Cause we’re more than a little bit in love with this movie. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s about two sisters, or maybe it’s the fact that it features a singing snowman, but this movie struck a cord right from the very first time we saw it. Yes, we ended up seeing the 2-D, 3-D, and yes, even the sing-a-long version! And we’re not alone in our obsession- the movie just entered the billion dollar club. WOW. We’ve also been following all the “Let It Go” renditions that have been hitting the web. Here’s a few of our favorites.
It’s kind of embarrassing when you realize that a baby can sing “Let it Go” better than you can. But, little Ella knows what she’s doing. “LET IT DOE!”
This next version by Brian Hull is a delight. He sings the song while impersonating our favorite Disney characters- (Winnie the Pooh for the win!)
Our friend Amber was the first to share this cover with us. Alex Boye’s voice is stunning and aren’t we all looking for an excuse to dress up as Olaf?
Can we be honest? We actually prefer this version to the one Idina Menzel (we mean Adele Dazeem) sang at the Oscars. There’s just something about a triangle.
While we’re at it, how about the version that started it all.
This article from Buzzfeed: “The 16 Funniest YouTube Comments on Disney Movie Clips” gave us one of the best Disney-related laughs that we’ve had in awhile (yes, we have Disney-related laughs more often than you’d think). Heads up, the article has some swearing in it, but we find it beeping hysterical. Here’s a sampling of our favorites and might we add, they make some excellent points.
“Winds in the east, mist coming in.” Is anybody else as excited as we are over this Saving Mr. Banks trailer? Because it is seriously combining all of our favorite things in one place: Tom Hanks, check; Emma Thompson, check; Disneyland, check, check. Not only does it follow the development process behind one of our favorite movies, Mary Poppins, but it involves a trip to Disneyland with Walt himself. Plus, parts of the movie were actually filmed at the park! It’s coming out in December. Um, is it Christmas yet?
We would be remiss if we didn’t share what we found on the yahoo news feed yesterday because it is just too frickin’ cool for school. Artist Claire Hummel loves both Disney films and fashion. In particular, she has become fascinated by the idea of what Disney princesses would have worn if they had been styled according to the era in which their stories were set. She has drawn numerous Disney princesses (and villains) in the last couple of years & quite frankly, we are huge fans of her work.

Picture it: Disneyland, 1961, prom night. This next post combines so much vintage fabulousness that we can hardly contain ourselves. We spotted several of these shots at one of our favorite fashion blogs The Clothes Horse and we just couldn’t resist sharing them with you. In 1961, LIFE magazine followed one incredibly lucky graduating class as they spent their prom night at Disneyland. Photographer Ralph Crane captured these stunning images. Which just goes to show, the hairstyles may change, but Disneyland never goes out of style.
Teenagers will always be teenagers
This couple is just plain fabulous

We don’t know about you, but somebody get us a time machine!
If you’d like to view more images from this magical evening (and seriously, why wouldn’t you?) just check out this Buzz Feed article with the full spread of photos.
Did you see this recently on Buzz Feed? It’s all the Disney princesses with their real ages. That’s right people- Snow White is fourteen…four…teen! Geeeeeee. Awkward. Let’s just hope Prince Charming believes in long engagements.
Our awesome friend Amy sent this link to us and we are obsessed! Artist Philip Light is a genius. Here we have for you 3 of his “Sloth Princesses,” but to see the rest click here.
We are totally obsessed with this barber shop rendition of “Go the Distance” by Vocal Spectrum. It’s great from start to finish, but it hits the realm of pure music magic from 3 minutes on. Check it out & have a magical Monday!
