Good Morning!!!....afternoon. Happy Birthday mickeyat!! Pluto sure does make a mess of things, such a great dog. Our Hagrid is much like that, always getting into things. I think he was stung in the face twice before he learned not to mess with Spike. The Lion King is a tough one to chose a favorite part of because it is well rounded and well done. Most memorable for me, is one of the parts they chose for WOC, the stampede and the following scene when Simba discovers his dad...Pirates of the Caribbean films happen to be a personal favorite, however I was not fortunate enough to attend the world premier of any of them. :-( but I have them all on disc and am starting the marathon now :-) Cars 2 was not as exciting as the original for me. The discovery of the cast and Radiator Springs was just too good to follow. Although I did enjoy the phone conversation that got Lightning into the race.... and when Sally says Francesco Berrrnoulli. As always, this post rules, thank you miss! - GrumpyPirateDad  1936.2 #86 1:23PM

Agreed! Do you have a favorite part in either? - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 9:03AM
For the Lion King its always great to see Simba and Mufasa together! For Cars 2, I love seeing the "cars" versions of Tokyo and London plus my son loves the video for Collision of Worlds at the end. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:02PM
1st off, Happy Birthday, Mickeyat! πŸ˜ƒπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰2nd, I think The Lion King is in that "classics" category for me while I was a teenager. The movie is filled with amazing songs (no surprise with that team!) and my favorite song is 'Circle of Life'. I still cry when Mufasa is killed and love how you can see an amazing stage show based on the movie, too (like Beauty and the Beast). Thanks as always, Duchess! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ - GheeButtersnaps  377.6 #597 8:27AM

I loveeeeeee Lion King! My father took me when I was just a toddler to see it. I also love the broadway. I have seen it twice and I get chills every time they do the Swahili opening number so that my favorite part! I also love POTC and have the movie lines memorized. It's a great movie and jack sparrow is just... Sigh. Incredible! Great day for Disney movies! - missmimi90  2032.0 #76 8:47AM
