Hi, everyone! This month, I’m going to change things up a little. Instead of the Six Degrees of Disney Separation, this month’s DDL Riddle will be a simple Disney movie trivia question.
Since February is known for romance, this month’s Riddle will focus on a pair of famous sweethearts. Disney has many famous couples—Mickey and Minnie, Donald and Daisy, Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel and Flynn. But did you know that there is a real-life Hollywood couple who first met on the set of a Disney movie in 1968, years before they became romantically involved? In fact, one of them was only 14 years old at the time. 25 years later, this couple (who has never married) started dating and they’re still together today. It must’ve been fate that brought them together through Disney. Who are these Disney stars, and on what movie did they meet? This month’s winner will receive a prize from Brenda Valdez at www.justminnie.com.

In our family I’ve been homeschooling my children for four years. I started with Margeaux when she was of preschool age, and she has thrived with this educational style. Way back then we began learning the colors and shapes by studying Disney animation, carried on through Disney-centered phonics and math, and then we studied the countries represented in Epcot’s World Showcase. She currently devours advanced Disney-adopted literary classics like Alice in Wonderland and Mary Poppins even though she is in the first grade, so it is obvious she has been served well with our choice to homeschool. However, Miller has been struggling with his studies at home lately, and it has given me cause for concern.
