Disney’s The Little Mermaid – Part of Our World!

My sister-in-law spent Thanksgiving Day laughing at me. I was talking about the fact that The Little Mermaid had been released by Disney on Blu-ray for the first time and how much I’ve always loved this film. I don’t think she probably would have laughed about that, but when I started singing ~Part of Your World~ she burst into a fit of giggles and said she couldn’t believe that I knew all of the words by heart!

~Up where they walk, up where they run/ Up where they stay all day in the sun/ Wanderin’ free – wish I could be/ Part of that world.~

And I do. But that’s with good reason. Why? Because The Little Mermaid is frickin’ AWESOME!

Now that Disney has released it on Blu-ray, I was excited to share it with the girls. Miss Nine has seen the movie before, but it was Little One’s first time. She’s been a fan of Ariel for a long time but she didn’t know it — like a lot of little girls, she’s a fan of the Disney Princesses and Ariel is one of them.

Since we were all feeling a bit yukky (and I didn’t want to venture out in the rain – I’m not a fan of this wet fall weather) we settled on a Saturday and watched The Little Mermaid together. I discovered that Miss Nine adores Sebastian (and with good reason – he’s one cool crab!) while I’m pretty partial to Flounder (he’s just a cute fish!) and Little One was — no surprised — mesmerized by Ariel.

If you don’t know the story of The Little Mermaid, Ariel is a mermaid who wants desperately to be human (and it certainly doesn’t hurt that she’s seen a handsome prince!). While her father doesn’t want her to pursue life above water, a nasty sea witch named Ursula makes a deal with Ariel. Little One was a bit scared of Ursula — which makes sense as she is one ugly sea witch — but she got over it quickly as she got more and more into the movie. How do things end for Ariel? I’m not telling you — you have to watch the film!

What I liked was the fact that there are some very cool extras. Carly Rae Jepsen singing ~Part of Your World~ was cool (and it gave me a chance to sing along again!) and the Crab-E-OKE Sing Along feature was hilarious!

Having watched a LOT of tv this year, and seen more movies than I can count, I can say without hesitation that seeing The Little Mermaid on Blu-ray has been my favourite viewing moment of 2013! This Disney film has stood the test of time and is a movie for all ages!

    This takes me back to when my girls were all little. My eldest must have watched this hundreds of times! She used to draw different scenes as well! Great movie!
