#18 - I Wanna Be Like You - The Jungle Book (Disney Blog Hop)

#18 - I Wanna Be Like You
It's Thursday, and that means it's Disney Blog Hop Day. So first of all I would like to say Hi to all the Hoppers out there and and welcome anyone visiting my blog for the first time!  Right now I am blogging my 25 favorite Disney Songs. Today is (obviously) #18. I love the movie Jungle Book, and I especially love the music from the movie.  King Louie is so funny to me, and he is obsessed with becoming a man, unfortunately Mowgli can't help him with the one thing he wants to know-how to make "Man's Red Fire."

But on to today's Disney Blog Hop's Theme, "Blog Inspiration." I would like to dedicate my song to the people who have inspired me to be a better blogger. Thank you all for making me want to be more like you and strive to be better.  On Tuesday when I first saw the theme of this week's Blog Hop the first person I thought of was Suzannah DiMarzio of Zannaland, her blog was the first one I really started following regularly.  She is a former cast member at Walt Disney World, a former and current Disney Mom's Panelist, has 5763 followers on Twitter, 889 "likes" on Facebook, 101 Followers on her blog. She is inspirational, and why would you not want to be like her?? But then I thought what about Babes in Disneyland's, Lisa Robertson? She inspired me to put my blog out there for other people to see for the first time. Before I joined my first Disney Blog Hop I think less than a dozen people, besides myself, had ever seen my blog. I am sure there are dozens of bloggers out there she has inspired and we all appreciate the opportunity she gives us each week to share our blog. She is an author, her book - "Babes in Disneyland" was recently published, and she has a very successful blog. Then there is the blogger Lisa mentioned herself,  Cooking With Mickey this blog is very unique. It has a huge following and I love reading about all the food at Disney World and it has helped me tremendously in choosing where I am eating during my upcoming vacation.

But in my heart I knew what I had to chose as my true inspiration.  Two blogs I found through the Disney Blog Hop.  The first blog that inspires me is Disney on Wheels - . Her blog is well thought out, she touches on a lot of Disney World restaurants and attractions and her blog tends to be fun and upbeat, and I would imagine her personality would be the same should I ever have the honor of meeting her in person. She is wonderful about posting regularly and has some great pictures on her blog. Make sure you check out her post "Disney in a Wheelchair: Still a Magical Experience" from January 25, 2011, I think you will be inspired too!

The second blogger who inspires me to be a better blogger is DIStherapy she is very new to the blogging and she is a physical therapist. Take a couple of minutes to read her post "A Tale of March Madness-How Basketball Rescued My Autistic Son" I promise you will never look at a nerf basketball the same way again. I would imagine we will see a lot of inspiring post come from D Marie in the future and I look forward to reading all of them! I look forward to seeing who inspires all of you!  Now I'm off to dance with King Louie and Mowgli! 



  1. Hi! I am a new follower of your site from the Blog Hop. I love this song! The Jungle Book is probably my husband's fave Disney movie and a few months ago my son was obsessed with it, so we heard this a lot!
    I loved hearing about your inspirations! Disney on Wheels is one of the first Disney blogs I started following (just started recently) and I love how she writes! She is definitely inspirational!

  2. Hi Amanda! I fell in love with this movie when my daughter was little (she's 23 now)!! Then I fell in love with it all over again when my son was born 10 years later. It's definitely a classic. Don't you just love Thurdsay Disney Blog Hops?

  3. This would easily be one of my top 25 Disney songs and I feel the same way about all the bloggers you mentioned. Happy hopping!

  4. Donna!
    You brought a tear to my eye. Imagine a blogger such as YOU mentioning the likes of ME... Imagine what the world would be like if it were full of DISney folks like Disney Donna Kay? XO :DM
