Helps you forget your worries, if only 27 minutes., 21 August 2015
Author: OllieSuave-007 from California, USA

This is a direct-to-video special musical where you can read the on-screen lyrics and sing-along to some of your favorite Disney songs from various movies including The Jungle Book, The Mickey Mouse Club, Cinderella, Old Yeller, Figaro And Cleo, Winnie The Pooh, Dumbo, The Aristocats and Summer Magic. Just like the song The Bare Necessities, you can forget about your worries and enjoy the magic, nostalgia and music this video has to offer. I remember buying this video from the Disney Store when my mom and brother were visiting the mall and, when watching it, it brings back memories and warmth seeing clips from the movies and listening to the songs.

Some clips are from movies I haven't seen before at that time including Old Yeller and Aristocats, but the songs featured still made me enjoy the entertainment. It's a 27 min. program where you can just sit back, relax and enjoy to and, where you're up to it, sing along with.
