Not only are Disney films incredibly entertaining, they also have some important messages too. So, we asked some bloggers what their favourite Disney quotes were, and this is what they had to say.
“My favourite quote from a Disney film is from The Lion King. The above quote was said by Rafiki to Simba when Simba wanted to run away from his past, instead of face it. I love this quote, and find it truly inspiring because of its relevance to real life situations. People get hurt, and have past regrets, but instead of dwelling on the past, one could learn from it, which is exactly what Rafiki is referring to. There is no way to change the past, so instead of running away from it, why not learn from our mistakes and events that have hurt us, and turn it into something positive?”– Danielle Ogozaly, It’s A Great Blog After All
“I love this as it's from my favourite ever Disney song, as sung by Belle in Beauty & The Beast - I identify with the character Belle so much, being from somewhere so small but wanting to venture out to experience the rest of the world, I love her passion and the fact she doesn't care what others think of her.”– Kirstie Saunders, A Yellow Brick Blog
“This is such a cute scene from the movie, Lilo & Stitch - I just think it's such a lovely sentiment and I've even been thinking about getting the word Ohana as a tattoo!”– Kirstie Saunders
“Cinderella 2015 definitely made me cry more than once. I believe you should have the courage to stand up for what you believe in and I love this quote so much! Also being kind is one of the most important things in life, people will remember you for being kind.”– Kirstie Saunders
“This is my favourite quote by Walt Disney because it reminds me of all the times someone has told me I can't do something, or the times someone has looked at me like I'm mental when I've told them one of my goals, such as running a half marathon, working out every day for a month or blogging daily for a year. It reminds me of how the harder the goal is, the more satisfying it is to complete it.”– Corinne, Skinned Cartree
“My favourite Disney quote (super hard to choose just one) is from The Incredibles. I think those are wise words and excellent advice. When one focuses on what one could have, should have, or would have been in the past, it's impossible to be fully in the moment right now.
“One of the strongest recommendations I make to friends planning to buy Disney World tickets is to try their best to enjoy every moment to the fullest! Be present in the here and now! On a Disney vacation, there are magical details and wonderful things to see and experience all around you - don't miss out by letting worry steal your fun!”- Lisa Green, Living a Disney Life
“Growing up, my family moved many times. I lived in 5 different cities in 2 different states before I moved again to start college. When people would ask me where I was from, I didn't know what to say! I don't feel like I have a ‘hometown’. Since I moved to college 23 years ago, my parents have moved 8 more times. I don't really have a ‘home’ to go to when I take my family to visit my parents. There is no place that I consider ‘home’ because of all the moves. However, no matter what the physical address is at the time, whenever I walk into the house my parents are living in at the moment, I know I'm home because of their presence. ‘Home’ is not always an address, as Dory says in Finding Nemo. Many times its being comfortable and being loved by those around you. That's what I feel when I go home to visit my parents.”– Beth Green, A Disney Mom’s Thoughts
“Being a mom and a youth minister, I'm always telling my boys and my students to love others, similar to Olaf in Frozen. We never know what's going on inside a person's heart or inside their home. Everyone is dealing with something heavy. Some people just share what it is with others while some continue life like everything is great. We need to love everyone. This quote is the perfect definition of love – putting someone else's needs before yours.”– Beth Green
