Best: Belle is my favourite. She didn't fall for love at first sight, turned down the sleazy "town-hunk," and loved to read. She had independence and a natural grace.
Worst: Not necessarily the worst hero, but I really disliked Fox and the Hound. What an immensely depressing story!! I've only watched it a few times in my life and have since avoided it, even thinking about the film makes me sad. Ugh.
I also never liked Peter Pan, I thought he was too irresponsible, and a little creepy.
Best: Ursula comes to mind..
Worst: Gaston, from Beauty and the Beast. He needs to get over himself.
Best: LOVE Pluto!
Worst: Tinkerbell. She's moody and manipulative, not pleasant company in my opinion.
Best: I can't really think of one that stands out, but I have an appreciation
for anything that's been hand drawn. CGI can be lovely too, like Finding Nemo.
Worst: Not sure about this one either. . .
Best: I really liked Snow White, Lion King, and Fantasia. There were also some old sing-alongs I had as a child, I don't remember the name of it but it started off with an owl teaching in a classroom.
Worst: Hmm..maybe Dumbo? I can't recall any songs from that movie sticking with me.

Best: Belle, by a landslide. She's independent, loves to read, and isn't easily swayed. What more could you want in a role model?
Worst: Ariel. She's selfish and very immature. What sane person would give away their voice, the one thing they were talented with, for a chance with a guy? Not to be snarky, but there are other fish in the sea. There's also a good reason why she dies in the original fairytale...
Best: Scar. His whole plan for convincing Simba that Mufasa's death was his fault for being down in the canyon is genius. Plus then he manages to ruin the Pride Lands by his own selfishness and he manages to turn his lackeys (the hyenas) against him. It reminds me a lot of what happened in Nazi Germany, further illustrated by the super-creepy "Be Prepared" scene with the hyenas goose-stepping.
Worst: Gaston. To me, he's no worse than a high school boy with an inflated ego.
Best: Timon and Pumbaa. They basically save Simba's life, and then when he needs their help, they're there for him unconditionally, which is pretty amazing considering they know they're off to fight animals that are their predators.
Worst: Nakoma. She's such a spoilsport, sometimes she almost drifts into villain territory, IMO. She also doesn't seem to know how to enjoy life and have fun. How Pocahontas puts up with her boringness, I have no idea.
I'm glad to see I'm not the only anti-Tinkerbell person! I'd explain why I don't like her, but it would involve a lot of choice words...
Best: Pocahontas. When I watch it, I want to visit Virginia, just to see if their leaves have a magical sparkle in them (but they never do!)
Worst: Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, Tarzan, any other movie where hand drawing and CGI aren't blended together well. Forte the organ is by the WORST CGI I've ever seen in a Disney movie, and I hate the scene in Tarzan where he's sliding on the trees. I'm sure that was impressive in 2000 (actually I remember liking it at the time) but now it just looks weird. Forte, on the other hand, never looked good.
Best: I honestly can't pick just one. It's a tie between Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas. Pocahontas was the very first CD I owned, so I listened to it obsessively growing up, but Beauty and the Beast was the first cassette tape I owned, so before I got a CD player, that was my jam. Now they're both so nostalgic to me, I can't pick a favorite!
Worst: 101 Dalmatians, which is just sad considering Roger's a musician.
No trips as of right now... but I've been promised that a trip will happen before December 2013!

I separated Disney and Pixar films with a semi-colon. I feel like they're sort of connected, but I nevertheless feel weird lumping them into the same category.
