This Disney Classic has been celebrated with gusto this year! August 29, 2017, will mark a legendary mark to include one more Disney animation several generations have grown on – THE LION KING.
What Walt Disney himself always preached was that story is what makes it or breaks it. Every character in Disney’s movie has a backstory, a flavor and characteristics it is known to us. That is how we connect to each character, thus remembering it forever.

This year, my family has celebrated the Summer of amazing Disney releases. Enjoying an outdoorsy lifestyle in warm climate, we love watching our movies by the pool where we set up a mini projector; easy and very convenient.
