My Thoughts:
Disney has brought so many classics into our lives... and Sleeping Beauty is definitely one of those classics. Growing up we watched Sleeping beauty often, as it was my mom's favorite Disney movie. It is filled with magic, adventure, danger, and love. It is one to share with your family over and over again.

My daughter had already seen Sleeping Beauty, but she was thrilled when this brand new Diamond Edition arrived so that we could add it to our movie collection. So over the weekend we all settled in for a family movie night featuring this film.

My daughter, of course, loves Aurora. But she also really enjoys the 3 fairies who watch over Aurora. My husband and I both favor Maleficent. She may be evil, but she is so good at being evil! She is filled with so much magic that you are just drawn into her character and personality. For my husband, she also brings all the action and excitement to an otherwise very romantic story.

My daughter met Aurora in Epcot this year and was totally star-struck!

This movie truly has something for everyone. It made everyone in our house happy, even my son who is only 22 months was fascinated by the dragon! It's a fun family movie night pick, and a Disney classic that will live on in the hearts of children and adults for generations to come. Don't miss your chance to capture this classic in this fantastic Diamond Edition with so many extras packed in!
