Disney+ has been an awesome thing to have in our lives right now. I have more free time to watch things, and there’s more content than ever I’m interested in! I’ve spent a lot of hours invested in some of the Disney documentaries and behind the scenes shows, but I’ve also really been enjoying many of their original TV shows. And of course watching plenty of favorite Disney films!
When I first started this blog post I was aiming for a list of 50. But as I kept exploring Disney+ and watching more and discovering more, I realized it had to be longer. So you get 100 things that are definitely worth checking out on Disney+! I’ve broken them down into categories so you can find a genre or topic that interests you and go from there.
