Midterm Stress Relief, Disney Style

I’m thankful for a childhood of playing outside with bare feet, swinging a little too high on the swing set, jumping off and getting a few bruises, playing hide and seek for hours and hours on end, and playing cards with candy as the wager. I love to reminisce about the funny, beautiful, and crazy years I spent living in a house with six siblings. Holidays or other big events where the whole family gets together, are perfect opportunities to pull out the photo albums and recall amazing and sometimes ugly memories.

After graduating high school and leaving home, you might see your “old friends” as I do every once in a while and the most automatic conversation that starts is the classic “remember when…” such as, “Do you remember eighth grade, when you jumped out of the window during English Class? Good times.” Family and friends are a great source for fond memories; however, when I’m alone and feeling reminiscent, I turn to original Disney Channel Movies. I dare you to look at the list I have accumulated below, and tell me that just looking at a few of the titles don’t make you grin from ear to ear. Oh, the memories.
