    Talking I Blame Disney

    I blame Disney for why I feel so old lately. Today I did some research and I figured out why!

    1) Finding Nemo came out 8 years ago.

    2) Toy Story, over 15 years ago.

    3) How about the Lion King? Yeah that was 17 years ago.

    4) Beauty and the Beast? Coming up on it's 20 year anniversary.

    5) The Little Mermaid? Well, it came out so long ago that it is closer to the moon landing than present day!

    To me it feels like these movies were all fairly recent. I remember them like it was yesterday. I hate being old. Darn you Disney for giving us films that linger in our memories so long!
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Re: I Blame Disney

    Wow, I am by no means old, (Haw haw!), but Finding Nemo came out that long ago? I remember watching that in theaters! That and Treasure Planet. The former is a great movie that I will love and treasure forever, and the latter is a fairly decent movie that I will watch only when there is nothing else to. Good day!

    At 33 I must be ancient then.

    It's the clips at the end of the Great Movie Ride that do it.... Top Gun, Platoon, Terminator, all in the early to mid 80's

    And the fact I was first in Disney World 20 years ago!!!

    This is one of the most clever threads I've seen in a long time!

    Thanks for the time warp.

    All I can say is WOW! I watched the Little Mermaid a few months ago and it feels just like a couple of years ago that it was out.
