Walt Disney has been making films since 1937, with every single one of them bringing magic into our cinemas, homes and lives. We all grew up with the stories, although can you believe I only saw Lion King for the first time in February? I still have a long way to go before I’ve experienced all of the Disney magic but I’ve made a small list of my favourite Disney films (so far!)
Let me know if I’ve missed yours out!
Favourite Disney Films
Our first dance at our wedding was to ‘You’ve got a friend in me’ so Toy Story would have to sit pretty high up in my list. It’s based around a friendly cowboy named Woody, who fights to remain the favourite toy when Andy is bought a Buzz Lightyear on his birthday.
There are three movies (I can’t wait until the 4th can you?) but the first will always be the best. I still like to think that when I’m at work all of my toys come alive and cause chaos around our flat. That’s the magic of Disney isn’t it?
The popular story of Repunzel trapped in a tower. It’s not a rescue mission as such, but she ends up in the arms of the smouldering Flynn Rider. Together they sing their way all the way back to the castle… sort of. Don’t forget the baddies along the way and the usual scary near death experience though (all accompanied by you guessed it! Singing!)
My favourite song is probably either “When Will My Life Begin?” or “I see the Light” although “I’ve got a dream” is slowly trying to squish it’s way in there.
Monsters Inc is based around a scream factory where Sully (aka Kitty) is one of their top scorers. He has a small green assistant who follows him round. The monsters collect the screams of human children to power the city but what happens when a little girl escapes into the monster world?

( Do you get it? If not I just look a little weird…)
Everyone’s had “You’re Welcome” stuck in their head since the film was released. But just in case you haven’t seen it yet, Moana is an adventurous teenager who sets out on a daring adventure to save her family and friends. She meets Maui, a demigod who guides her as they sail across the ocean and undo the mistakes that were made.
If you watch closely squirt from Finding Nemo makes a little appearance too!
Hands down my favourite Disney Movie. Young Carl and Ellie grow up planning their lives around adventure and the hope to travel to legendary Paradise Falls. After Ellie’s death, Carl is left to fulfil their dreams on his own by tying thousands of balloons to their house.
It’s an absolutely beautiful movie and the soundtrack is incredible. You’re really missing out if you haven’t seen it yet.
