National Speak Like a Whale Day by Josie Riviera



Today’s blog is a fun post!

My family and I love anything Disney, so when I realized that my blogging day was also the same day as Disney, Pixar, and the Disney Parks, #SpeakLikeaWhaleDay, well, I couldn’t resist!



June 11th is #Speak Like a Whale Day because Disney is celebrating the release of their newest film, Finding Dory.



As a writer, I’ve admired the well-thought out and hilarious characters in every Disney film. Genie, voiced by Robin Williams in Aladdin, is hilarious and loyal. And, the Siamese cats who frame Cocker Spaniels in Lady in the Tramp, especially when they sing, “We Are Siamese,” create a classic and witty scene.

And who hasn’t fallen in love with Dory, the “blue tang with the sunny personality” in the wonderful film, Finding Nemo? One of the more memorable scenes in that film is when Dory “discovers” her ability to talk like a whale. 

To quote American film director, Andrew Stanton: "So, in Finding Dory, we’ll meet a new character, Destiny, the whale shark, and we’ll also learn that Dory learned to speak whale from Destiny."

Adding to today’s fun, June11th is also “National Corn on the Cob Day.”
I’m including a bonus photo of my sister and I at the New York State Fair in our finest “Corn on the Cob attire!   :)



Can you share a silly or fun scene from your favorite Disney film?
Or, because its a bonus day, can you share your favorite recipe for corn on the cob?

Either way, leave a comment and one lucky winner will receive a free ebook copy of one of my sweet romances. The winner can select their choice of either I Love You More, A SnowyWhite Christmas, or Seeking Catherine. Winner will be announced June 12th.

  2. My daughter and I love Disney movies and it just so happen we had either just been to Disney or was going when Tarzan came out and we when to see it. In the beginning of the movie, you can hear what Tarzan is saying to the animals, but of course when he met Jane he can't understand her and she can't understand him. That this point, my daughter who mind you was not a child as she just had her 30th birthday turns to me and says why can't we understand what his saying? We could when he was talking to the animals! After trying not to laugh and not I suceeding, I lead over and explained to her. Oh! Was her respond. Then we were both laughting! Good memorie. Lots of good memories of Disney world.
