What Disney Taught Us

It is impossible in these times not to be flooded with nostalgia. Childhood teaches us things which prove invaluable for adult life and of these mementos of youth, Disney teaches some less conventional but definitely memorable lessons.

Toy Story 3Turning into a llama is not the worst thing that could happen to you.


I’m not entirely sure how these lessons relate to our lives, but I’m sure at some point we will all thank Disney for their insight.
