We all grew up watching (and listening to)
the wonderful world of Disney. It shaped our childhood, relationship ideals and, of course, our hoarding addictions if you were Little Mermaid-inclined.
But have you ever taken a walk down memory lane to revisit the classics? You really have to.
Things are different now — you're wiser, more experienced, and newly savvy to the story lines you're confronted with. Below are some of the most iconic Disney flicks (available on
worth a re-watch with a glass of wine now that you're a grown-up. Stan)
The Little Mermaid
You want thingamabobs? I'm sure you've got plenty after watching Ariel hoard her prized possessions in The Little Mermaid. Are you a bit of a pain in the butt to your parents? Rewatch and finally understand why you are the way you are, including but not limited to an attraction to dark-haired, blue-eyed men named Eric, also known as the hottest of all the Disney princess. Watch it

The Lion King
There's a reason The Lion King became a wildly popular Broadway musical and is getting a live action readaptation this year, and that's because it's the crème de la crème of Disney classics. "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" will forever give us all the feels. Watch it
2 / 6
Beauty and The Beast
There's something weirdly enjoyable about being able to dissect the story line of Beauty and The Beast as an adult. Whether you put it into Stockholm syndrome territory or not — a controversial topic best left to individual interpretation — it's worth revisiting to break down what might've otherwise been missed as a bright-eyed child. Watch it
3 / 6
Movies like Cinderella make us thankful for our own families, no matter how downright annoying they might be. To have siblings who constantly make you feel like dirt and a parent with no consideration for your feelings? We guess our bloodline isn't so bad, after all. Watch it
4 / 6
Watch Pocahontas as an adult and you'll instantly stop blaming things like long distance, timing or differing work schedules for why you can't make something work. If John Smith and Pocahontas could get over the hurdle of her father's disapproval and cultural expectations, we're sure you and your partner can get through those trivial matters you're facing. Watch it

How crazy is it that we thought all of life's problems could be solved if a man came to our rescue? Snow White, along with many of the other Disney classics (looking at you, Sleeping Beauty) are also worth a watch 20 years later. You're able to reflect on how much you've learned about relationships, and how much they differ from this early representation. Watch it
