If you're on the east coast that's a little late unless you're already up in the middle of the night feeding a baby but if you're on the west coast that means you could be streaming before breakfast. The anticipation for this moment has been building for two years , and last month Disney finally rolled out a list of the TV shows and movies we can expect to find on the platform in one epic Twitter thread.
The list was released in chronological order, so the first program on the lineup is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , which originally released in The lineup also includes classics like Pinocchio, Bambi and Fantasia. While switcheroo films like The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday were revived during many of our childhoods, the platform will offer up the original versions of both movies. Are you more TV show fan than movie buff?
If so, you can binge shows like Boy Meets World and Smart Guy you know you loved these during your childhood! And not to worry: There's plenty of original programming to fall in love with as well—most notably, fresh takes on Lizzie McGuire and High School Musical.
Naturally, Twitter users are having a field day with this thread. One user added that we are "old enough to remember when Disney's home video strategy was to threaten consumers that their movies would be put away in a vault and if you didn't buy them RIGHT NOW you might never get to see them again. Are you as excited about this as we are?
We LOVE the thought of introducing our little ones to our nostalgic favorites while discovering some new amazing programming in the process! It has been updated. She's beautiful, successful and hilarious, and Ali Wong is also a regular mom. If you follow her on Instagram you'll know she doesn't subscribe to the idea of curating the grid with polished pictures.
Instead, Ali serves up as much realness on the 'gram as she does in her standup—and we love her for it. We love that she doesn't crop out the clutter and doesn't pretend that motherhood can't be super fun and super hard at the same time. When she admited the weekend can be super hard and that she was "grateful the weekend was over" and that work is her escape. It is okay if you feel like being home with your kids is sometimes harder work than actually being at work.
It probably is. One survey found moms log so many hours on childcare and housework that motherhood is like 2.
Our society can be really weird when it comes to motherhood. Throughout human history, parents have had help from community, but now the metaphorical village is hard to come by. That's why having a kid start pre-school, day care or elementary can feel like such a relief. When Ali Wong says she's ready to lie down and have "the teachers come off the bench" we totally get it.
We're grateful for our kids' teachers, too. It's nice to have some responsible adults backing you up. Sometimes a weekend with the kids feels like work and sometimes it feels like paradise.

Ali knows that both can be true. Motherhood is complicated. Sometimes we yearn to go back to work and sometimes we yearn to have more time off with the family. It's normal to want days like this one to never end but unfortunately they do. If this photo of Ali Wong sleeping beneath her sleeping baby wasn't already super relatable, the caption is.
Now we're humming Mariah Carey's iconic tune and nodding in agreement. And Ali's hashtag, blessedbutdone" is also super on point. You can love your kids dearly without wanting more. Sometimes a positive pregnancy test requires a happy dance. And sometimes when you're a mama who is feeling blessedbutdone like Ali, a negative test prompts a dance celebration. Flying with kids is tricky business, as Ali noted in the sarcastic caption of this photo. Introducing a newborn to an older sibling can be absolutely adorable, but little hands don't always know how to be gentle, as this picture shows.
Strollers are amazing, and forgetting one can ruin a shopping trip. That's why we totally understand why Ali hijacked a shopping cart from its store of origin to tour her kids around a strip mall for two hours. Who hasn't taken a cart from the department store and used it in the mall? Kids are heavy! We promise we'll return the cart when we're done!
