Disney’s Grown Up: Introductions

Today I’m introducing (yet another) new series of posts to this blog, “Disney’s Grown Up”. This series is a bit different from my other posts. It leans heavily on the “distractions” aspect of this blog and will consist of all my random thoughts about Disney movies, Disneyland, pretty much everything Disney. I’m a born-and-raised Californian who’s loved Disney her entire life and has a mind for creative writing and literary criticism, so these posts will be both passionate and a bit crazy.

My mom and I are proof that you’re never too old for some fun.

I call this series “Disney’s Grown Up” because the topics discussed won’t be your typical childhood Disney conversations. (It’s also named for one of my poems I shared back in May, “Wendy Darling’s Grown Up”.) This series will be for the intelligent, hardcore Disney fanatics.

From tips for exploring the parks to in-depth analyses of the latest movies, you’ll get a taste of the entire fandom from an adult’s perspective. Of course, I’m still going to be making “Let It Go” and “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman” jokes every now and then. It’s pretty much required. Nevertheless, the whole experience will be both fun and intellectually-stimulating.

Some of the topics you can look forward to are Emma Watson’s Beauty and the Beast and the French Revolution, Frozen from the perspective of someone with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and some of the lesser-known (and perhaps darker) history and rumors surrounding Walt Disney. Best of all, in late October/early November I’ll report to you the wonders that await at Disneyland during Halloween and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

I encourage all my fellow fanatics to send me their ideas for posts and their thoughts on the topics I discuss, both in the comments here and by email to thewritersscrapbin@gmail.com.

And if you’re looking to go to the Disneyland Resort but aren’t sure how to best enjoy the park, look up me up on Fiverr and I can help you navigate the wonderful (albeit stressful) experience.
