So most of you know what a Disney fanatic that I am. My family pretty much lives and breathes all things Disney, when we are not planning our next visit to see our favorite mouse, you can find us cuddling up on the couch with an enormous bowl of popcorn watching Sleeping Beauty for the umpteenth time.
There is special magic in a Disney movie that allows us to escape reality for a few hours and have some much needed family time. Y’all can just imagine how excited I was when Disney released their 2015 schedule for this years’ magical movies. There are some great flicks here that I’m practically foaming at the mouth to see like Cinderella, Avengers; Age of Ultron and of course the highly anticipated Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. If you are just as excited as I am, check out this amazing line up of Disney movie magic:
