3. High School Musical
Because we’ve been asked to stop standing outside the gates one too many times.
And it goes with our bedroom.
And the moderate-to-good balancing. This is how she hits the high notes.
4. Princess: Enchanted Journey
Because of the possibilities.
And the nice beaver.
It must be great to work at Disney.
