In 2020, the love for Disney is remaining strong as ever. For some, we know that film releases aren’t enough for those needing to satisfy those cravings! With recreations of old classics dominating cinemas and a plethora of Disney-related events and ranges, we’ll take a look at how to incorporate Disney magic into your everyday life.
You can have Disney guide you every step of the way through your daily routine — from the moment you wake up to the chirp of your Disney alarm clock, to when you snuggle into your Disney pillow to get a good night’s sleep. When the Walt Disney Company first opened its doors in 1923, it was a film house with one main aim: creating cartoons that would entertain and delight. Today however, Disney is so much more. Expanding from filmmaking, Disney opened its first theme park ‘Disney World’ in Orlando Florida, in 1971, and then it’s shop franchise the ‘Disney Store’ in California, 1987.
Disney products are available for just about everything. Spruce up your interior design with Disney printed fabric, designed for curtains, sofas, and armchairs. Make sure your workplace has some Disney touches by bringing your favourite Disney themed mug to the office. Think of a product you use on a daily basis, and I guarantee there’s a Disney version of it somewhere. You can even get Disney branded coffee and tea; they really have got all the essential bases covered!
Disney Themed Parties
Disney is useful in perking us up on those gloomy Mondays, but what about special occasions? Any party or event could be made a whole lot more magical with some Disney touches. Birthday cards are a great example — what better way to wish your loved one a happy birthday than with the face of their favourite Disney character? The ‘Disney Faces’ range from UK Greetings, a leading greeting card supplier, recently won the ‘Best Paper Products and Stationery’ prize at the Licensing Awards. The range is simple yet bold, perfectly encapsulating the essence of some beloved Disney characters. These cards provide a perfect way to commemorate a big day, or even a very happy un-birthday!
Make your birthday just as magical with a Disney themed birthday. Choose from a wide range of Disney themed balloons, party bags, invitations, and other goodies. Whether you go down the dainty Disney princess route, choose a superhero theme, or create a party around your favourite Pixar film, you can make sure it’s perfect. All you have to do is crank up the Disney music and make sure everyone gets the fancy-dress memo!
Get Disney inspiration from new blockbusters constantly breaking box-office records! The craze of reanimating our favourite Disney originals has many of us flocking to the cinema. The remake of The Lion King was a roaring success and Beauty and the Beast brought a tear to everyone’s eye. But, that’s not all! There are plenty of live action films to look forward to over the next few years, including:
- Mulan (release date 27th March 2020,
- Cruella (release date 28th May 2021)
- The Little Mermaid (release date TBC)
- The Sword in the Stone (release date TBC)
There’s a lot to look forward to in the cinematic world, hopefully these films will quench the appetite of even the most avid Disney fanatic.
Boost Your Mood
Everyone knows that music can make us feel better. Walt Disney famously said: “There’s a terrific power to music. You can run any of these pictures and they’d be dragging and boring, but the minute you put music behind them, they have life and vitality they don’t get any other way.” So, why not take his advice? Add vitality to your daily routine by compiling an uplifting Disney playlist.
Disney songs can be listened to in any setting — many of our favourite tunes have had chart-topping success. In 2013, Frozen’s epic song ‘Let It Go’ by Idina Menzel, reached number 11 in the UK charts and was loved by all. Elton John’s The Lion King smash hit ‘The Circle of Life’, was another favourite, also reaching number 11. In 2019, Zayn Malik and Zhavia Ward’s version of ‘A Whole New World’ (featured in the live action Aladdin) has been a particular favourite.
