Calling All Disney Lovers! {Netflix #StreamTeam}

Things sure have changed since I was a child! That fact is evident every single day that I spend with my four children. Their childhoods are so much different than my own childhood which was not all that long ago.

There is one thing, however, that remained the same. The magic of Disney! My childhood was full of Disney movies and Disney princesses. I knew all the movies by heart and ran around belting out the songs. The years flew by, but surprisingly, that aspect of my life hasn't changed one bit!

You see, I live with two adorable princesses...


...one amazing (Lion) King...


and another king who pulled the sword out of the stone and became the King of Moody Tweens Exasperated By Their Annoying Parents.


My days are full of princesses kissing frogs...


princesses escaping from behind locked doors to venture into the wild outdoors (shoes optional)...


magic carpet rides...


lion cubs growing up way too quickly because they just can't wait to be king...


sisterly squabbles and sisterly bonds (though not much snow these days)...


...and non-stop drama that leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat!


SO...have you heard the big news? Starting this month Netflix will become the exclusive US pay TV home of the latest films from Disney (and Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar)! Although you will already see some Disney titles on Netflix there are still more to come!

First up is the title I'm most excited about: On September 20th, Zootopia will be coming to Netflix! Will the next few days pass by s-l-o-w-l-y or will it be here in the blink of an eye? Since our family missed seeing this movie in the movie theater, we will be enjoying it during our next Family Movie Night! There's nothing better than curling up on the couch with popcorn and rootbeer floats and enjoying a Disney movie together!


As for some old Disney favorites already streaming on Netflix, we recently introduced our little tribe to Tarzan! They loved the characters as much as I did when I saw it as a teenager. They were extra excited when I pulled down a box stored in my closet and gave them some stuffed animals I had from the movie!


Another Disney favorite that we were eager to introduce our kids to was Robin Hood. This movie is a classic! It came out way before I was born but I still fell in love with the fox and the bear while learning the story of Robin Hood. Since it's an older movie I was worried that our kids would think it was old and boring but it captured their attention!

Robin Hood

It's not just us parents who introduce new movies! In the Spring, Dylan's class read Holes and he wanted to watch the movie after they were done reading the book.  Our entire family ended up enjoying the movie!


These are just a few of the Disney titles currently streaming on Netflix and there are plenty more to come! 

As a parent I've experienced the joy of watching my Disney favorites with my kids. I don't sing alone anymore. Now I have 4 sidekicks belting out Disney tunes along with me! No matter how much life changes the love for all things Disney stays strong through each generation!

Are you excited about this big news? Which Disney title are you hoping shows up on Netflix?
In addition to the Disney titles here's what's new on Netflix for Kids, Tweens, Teens and Families:

DISCLOSURE: I am a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam. I receive service and other promotional items in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.


  1. This post is awesome!!! I love Disney movies so much, so seeing your kiddos all dressed up in the costumes made my heart so happy. And your comments about Dylan cracked me up. I love Zootopia, but the black panther part scared Cam and now he doesn't want to watch it. I think I need to make him see it again and realize it's not that scary. :)

  2. I have been so excited for this! Although when I first heard I thought Netlix would play ALL the Disney movies so that was a bummer, but this is still very awesome! Robin Hood is one of my all time faves, I actually bought it on DVD for Brayden when he was 2. We will for sure be watching zootopia!

  3. So cool about Zootopia! And I love these pictures.

  4. That is such a cute idea. I hope I get creative like this when I become a mommy :)

  5. Girl, we have been WAITING for this and we will definitely be partaking! We love our Netflix!

  6. You have the cutest Disney cast of all time!
    And we are so thrilled about Disney coming to Netflix. I cannot wait to share some of my favorites with Marcus!!

  7. Love it and I love your sweet fam!

  8. Love all the pics!! Good job! (Dylan kills me!!lol!!)

  9. These pictures are so great! I love Disney movies of all kinds, they really are the best. :) And I laughed at you King of Moody Tweens description, hilarious. :D

  10. You have adorable Disney babies!!! I'm so excited for this! We don't have cable and love Disney! Can't wait to watch Zootopia!

  11. Such amazing photos. I adore all of them. My girls are going to FREAK out over Zootopia. They are obsessed and I haven't bought it yet.


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
