I love watching Disney movies any time of year, but during the holidays is when I get to bust out the Disney Christmas movies! There are some good ones but here are my absolute favorites. I highly recommend you watch them if you’re looking for some good Christmas movies this season!
- The Muppet Christmas Carol
This is one of my favorite Christmas stories, and who better to tell it than the Muppets? (I’m a big Muppet fan). It’s got some great songs in it, and I love having Gonzo and Rizzo narrating for us.
- Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas
Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie, so I love that there’s something for Christmas time. It’s got an awesome voice cast, more great songs, and is actually one of the few animated sequels that isn’t awful. Plus, Belle’s holiday dress is so pretty.
- Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas
This one is actually a collection of holiday shorts featuring Mickey and friends. There’s one with Donald and his nephews wishing every day could be Christmas, Goofy convincing his son Max that Santa is real, and a re-telling of the Gift of the Magi with Mickey and Minnie. There’s also a sequel, Mickey’s Twice Once a Christmas, but I don’t enjoy that one nearly as much.
- The Santa Clause
This one was really popular when I was a kid, and while it spawned a couple of sequels they will never be as good as the original. Tim Allen involuntarily becoming Santa? Hilarious.
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
Is it a Halloween movie? A Christmas movie? I really feel like it could go either way, but it’s still an appropriate one for this time of year. A little creepy but strangely endearing.
One Disney Christmas movie that I haven’t seen but is on my list to watch this year is Prep and Landing! I’ve heard good things so I’m looking forward to borrowing it from the library.
What is your favorite Christmas movie?
