Happy Tuesday, my friends.  Last week, while fighting my post-Disney-meet blues, I began this new series–to see if you could get inside my Disney-obsessed mind and figure out what Disney reference I am thinking of when I go about my everyday life here in suburban New Jersey.

My first image was of that of a rose, found outside my house. And yes, for lack of any creative bone in my body at that moment, I had the obvious reaction: I was momentarily Belle, and I was gazing at the Beast’s rose.  Many of you saw the rose from my point of view, and congratulations to Diane J., who is the winner of this week’s mystery ticket for successfully reading my mind!

This week’s inspiration comes from my local library, a sanctuary where, like Belle, I can lose myself as I work on the blog.  The image comes from the amazing fireplace where I love to read during the winter.  The Disney reference, however, is within the image of the mural and not the fireplace itself.

There could be several Disney-related things that could have popped into my mind, but I will award randomly a mystery ticket each week to someone who correctly guesses what was the first Disney reference that popped into my mind when I saw the image. 

In the comments, please share what you think I was thinking,… and share what Disney reference pops into your mind when you see it!

    This mural reminds me a little of the background animations in ‘Mulan’. And I also briefly thought of ‘Fantasia’.

    I was thinking that this is what Simba sees when he wakes up from a nap and looks out over the savana. Please tell me that is what you saw too!

    The beginning of The Lion King popped into my head, so that will be my guess.

    The beginning of The Lion King, the Circle of Life scene. It looks like the water hole waking up and leaving the water to go to welcome Simba’s birth. I had the exact same thought when I looked at the mural as well.

    First thing that entered my mind was Mulan. I’m not sure why I have not watch the movie since it first came out on VHS all those many years ago.
