Well, everyone, we did it! Another year has gone by, and what a year for Disney fans! Between fan events like Star Wars Celebration and D23 Expo, plus new Walt Disney Studios, Disney•Pixar, Marvel Studios, and Star Wars movies, new attractions at Disney Parks, and our favorite ABC, Disney XD, and Disney Channel series, we have had non-stop Disney content in our lives and we wouldn’t have it any other way. To celebrate, we put together a list of our favorite Disney things in 2017. We warn you, this list includes all of the things, because everything is our favorite. For a quick recap, take a look at this video:
Now, let’s get into the details of 2017! Behold, your year of Disney in detail:
Beauty and the Beast
The tale as old as time enchanted us more than we can put into words. We also were obsessed with the song “Evermore” and put our thoughts and emotions into GIF form. Plus, we got to sit down with the cast, including Emma Watson (Belle) and Dan Stevens (Beast):
You can bring home your own copy of Beauty and the Beast here.
The Main Street Electrical Parade at Disneyland
Zootopia at the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards
Zootopia won the Golden Globe for Best Animated Picture and an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and we were so proud!
The Zootopia Big Donut Happened IRL
We think this picture, taken at Randy’s Donuts in Los Angeles, speaks for itself.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
We seriously can’t get enough Star-Lord and the team in our lives, and this movie was no exception. Find out which Guardians character you would be in a dance off! Plus, you can pick up your copy of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 here.
Disney’s Newsies the Broadway Musical
This was one of my favorite movie going experiences ever, because it felt like the original cast of Newsies on Broadway was performing live right in front of us. Get your copy of the movie here, and find out what your Newsies name is in the meantime!
Star Wars Celebration Orlando
We learned so many things at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, we couldn’t even handle it. The only way to put it: the Force was very, very strong … especially on Instagram. Make sure to catch Star Wars: The Last Jedi in theatres right now!
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Two words: Ghost. Sharks. Two more words: Captain. Barbossa. Both of them made us cry tears of joy. You can pick up your copy of the film here.
Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
We got to witness the opening day of Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World and it was truly groundbreaking. The cast of the film, including director James Cameron, were all present to experience the new land and attractions. While we were there, we learned a lot of things about the world of Pandora. And we stocked up on a ton of Pandora merch, obvi.
Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!
The ultimate Disney Fan event seriously made our year. Oh My Disney had a stage there, where we had tons of fun interviews and activities. And on the main stage were some of the best panels we’ve seen in our whole lives, including the Disney Parks panel, the Walt Disney Studios panel, and the Disney Legends ceremony (congrats to Oprah, Mark Hamill, Stan Lee, and more!) Make sure to catch Oprah in A Wrinkle in Time on March 9, 2018.
Once Upon A Time Musical Episode
We’re so obsessed with Once Upon A Time we hosted an Oh My Disney fan-attended panel with Ginny Goodwin (Snow), Josh Dallas (Charming), and co-creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, including a viewing of last season’s musical episode. Relive the Evil Queen’s song here:
