Top 10 Disney Movies

One of my new weekly amusements is listening to the nostalgia on the new podcast Mash the 90s. I know one of the guys who makes this podcast, so hearing memories from someone who grew up near where I grew up makes it even more radical. I was inspired by Mash the 90s to make a list of my top 10 all-time favorite Disney movies.

1. Beauty and the Beast 1991

2. Hocus Pocus 1993
witches of hocus pocus

3. Sleeping Beauty 1959

4. Hercules 1997
disney's hercules characters

5. Aladdin 1992
aladdin and jasmine

6. Tom and Huck 1995

7. Toy Story 1995
buzz and woody

8. Little Mermaid 1989
ariel and flounder

9. James and the Giant Peach 1996

10. Cinderella 1950
cinderella and fairy godmother

In the running:
- National Treasure 2004
- The Incredibles 2004
- Spirited Away 2001 - side note: I did not know this movie was Disney! I never saw this movie until 2006, when I was 19 years old. It's amazing.
- The Princess Diaries 2001
- Monsters, Inc. 2001
- Lion King 1994
- Pirates of the Caribbean 2003
- Pocahontas 1995
- Alice in Wonderland 1951
- Toy Story 2 1999
- Atlantis 2001


  1. Excellent films all...!! Almost all of those are very precious to me. Disney fanatic that I am, I don't know how I could ever narrow it all down! I do know that "Oliver & Company" and "Lady and the Tramp" would have to be somewhere near the top, though. ;D

  2. Your definition of "Disney movie" is pretty loose here. Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc, and The Incredibles were all created by Pixar, Spirited Away was produced by Studio Ghibli, and James and the Giant Peach was created through a joint venture with three different studios. Disney just distributed each of them; the company had no hand in actually making them.

  3. You are right, Charles. This should probably be "top Disney-marketed movies!" :)

  4. I think of most of those as Disney films anyway--especially the Pixar ones made since Disney acquired Pixar, and James and the Giant Peach, which was always advertised with the Disney name on my Disney videos...so that got kind of drilled into me, lol.


Comments are delightful - thanks for taking the time to write!
