Tom Hanks as Walt Disney in Saving Mr Banks

Saving Mr. Banks is one movie I have been seriously counting the days for since I originally learned of it’s creation.  Now that Ashley is home from college she has offered to babysit for us so hubby and I can go after Christmas.  I love the above photo for a lot of reasons, one of which is that I recently had the chance to stand in front of that same Mickey face at Disneyland when visiting the Treasures of Asgard exhibit.

2013 Disney Movies

On New Year’s I posted a recap of my favorite Disney movies in 2012.  There were so many great ones!  Next year will be no different: the line-up of releases that fall under the Disney umbrella are spectacular!  As each movie gets closer I’ll have more updates for you about each and hopefully some reviews, too!

I honestly can’t pick which one I’m most excited about.  Monsters University, Iron Man 3, and Thor are probably my top choices: we love the Marvel franchise and Monsters, Inc. is one of my favorite Disney movies so I’m excited for this “prequel”.  But Saving Mr. Banks is high on my list, too, as I love Disney history and I’m interested in the story of how Mr. Walt Disney brought Mary Poppins to the big screen.

How do you choose just one??
