Peter Pan was the fourth section of this puzzle completed, and for me it was the most difficult. I was certain Fantasia would be the most challenging, but I was wrong. I'm sure others who have finished this puzzle have their own ideas on each section, but for me this section was the most difficult to get through.

I knew this section would be tough, which is why I chose to assemble it early on. Once I had all the "difficult" ones done, all that would be left are the brighter, more colorful sections. It was my way of trying to make sure I didn't get discouraged by the enormity of my task and keep myself motivated.

After the first few days I had assembled most of the film strip, the faces on Big Ben's tower, and all the characters. The colors of the characters were bright and easy to pick out and made an excellent starting point. This section is one of the corners of the puzzle so the filmstrip borders 2 sides; seeing all the scenes depicted in the strip was fun and in this section the scene shown as the main image is also shown in the filmstrip itself.

The stars here are bigger and brighter, but this is exactly the large scene I'm assembling! This didn't happen with any of the other sections, and I found it pretty interesting. It's also good for showing how detailed the filmstrip scenes are; each cell was made up of between 12-20 pieces and were all wonderful images from each movie.

This is after a few more days of work. Once I got the pixie dust going I was able to connect Wendy, John, Michael and Tinkerbell. It's always satisfying for me to get smaller sections connected to each other. Once I put Peter where he goes I was only missing one piece to get him connected to Wendy, and it fortunately had a bit of pixie dust too so I was able to find it quickly - the pixie dust was the key! Filling in the dark blue starry pieces between the filmstrip and the edges wasn't too bad, and luckily they were a different shade of blue than the rest of the puzzle. Now begins the hard part, the entire rest of the puzzle is made up of blue/dark blue/dark pieces - more than 2000 of them!

Amazingly, even assembling all that sky with different shades of blue didn't becoming too overwhelming or tedious for me. This section was very dark, so my apologies for the glare you're seeing in some of the pictures. All of them were taken at night after I was done working for the day; the artificial lights and the dark pieces didn't play well together.

And here it is, completed in 15 days! It was nice to have several large characters to assemble instead of one giant elephant. I was pretty darn proud of myself for sticking with it and assembling all of that dark sky - so much blue! 

I thought when I started this project that I would need to take breaks in between each section, maybe a week or two, to keep from being bored with it or becoming overwhelmed. I was completely wrong! As soon as I finished one I was raring to get going on the next one. Even though they were big and intimidating I loved every section, even the hard ones, and couldn't wait to see what challenges the next section would hold.

Up next to get us to the halfway point in this entire assembly - The Jungle Book, my favorite Disney movie!

Snow White - Snow White was begun on September 28, 2016 and completed on October 17, 2016. I almost wish I’d saved this one till nearer the end. I was overwhelmed when I first started and don’t know if I enjoyed it as much as I could have.

Fantasia - Fantasia was started on January 14, 2017 and completed on January 28, 2017. This section I was dreading the most and I was happy to be wrong about it – it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be! And if I want to I can assemble this one again because I have an extra section.

Cinderella - Cinderella was started on October 21, 2016 and completed on November 5, 2016. Ole Cindy here was a difficult section, but I got her done! The picture is quite dark and doesn’t do her justice, you’ll see when the entire puzzle is assembled.

Peter Pan - Peter Pan (the hardest section in my humble opinion) was started on November 22, 2016 and completed on December 5, 2016. that day. I think I’m proudest of this section as it was the most difficult for me.

The Jungle Book - The Jungle Book, my favorite Disney movie, got started on December 7, 2016 and was completed for the FIRST time on December 19, 2016. It was done for about 5 whole minutes before I tried to move the board to take a better picture and it all fell off. A horrible day. I assembled it for the SECOND time from December 20, 2016 to December 27, 2016. Click here for the post for that day. Thank goodness for digital cameras/pictures!

The Little Mermaid - The Little Mermaid was assembled from December 29, 2016 to January 11, 2017. This one was one of my favorite sections to assemble. It looks like all that blue would be difficult but I loved this section!
