As we inch closer to the holiday season, it is important to prepare accordingly. That includes checking off every one of our Top 10 Family-Friendly Disney Christmas Movies!
So, sit back, relax, and enjoy… because this Winter just got a whole lot more magical.
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas is kind of the one-stop-shop of Christmas films. Filled with merriment, this holiday favorite features Mickey, Minnie, and their friends as they reminisce about their most memorable moments together. Christmas moments, that is!
Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas
In this animated sequel, Santa Claus joins Mickey, Minnie, and the gang to learn about the true meaning of Christmas. This movie includes five animated shorts with scenes that perfectly encapsulate the season.
Mickey’s Christmas Carol
While we’re on a Mickey kick here, allow me to cast my vote for the most heartwarming holiday hit out there, Mickey’s Christmas Carol. This truncated version on the Dicken’s classic retells the iconic story using Disney characters, including Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and more! It’s warm, fuzzy, funny, and old fashioned in that Christmas-kinda-way.
The Muppet Christmas Carol
I can’t help it – I prefer my Dickson’s characters played animals and amphibians. The Muppets treat this reimagining with care and respect, pulling out all the tender moments… and double downing on all the funny. Here, we get to witness Kermit, Statler, Waldorf, and Fozzie play against Michael Caine’s Scrooge. In my humble opinion, Caine’s rendition of the infamous sourpuss is hands down the best out there.
The Santa Clause 3
Sure, sure, sure… The Santa Clause is a classic. But The Santa Clause 3 is by far the funniest of them all. If you’re looking for a good laugh this holiday season, you can’t do any better than Tim Allen and Martin Short.
Olaf’s Frozen Adventure
Follow Olaf and Sven as they travel throughout Arendelle to learn about holiday traditions to help Elsa and Anna. The entire cast make a triumphant return for this new adventure, which includes an array of new songs that rival anything from the original film. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself.
Beauty and the Beast: Enchanted Christmas
Who couldn’t use another dose of Belle and her enchanted friends? Especially when the cast is rounded out by Tim Curry, Paul Reubens, and Bernadette Peters! Full of holiday cheer and a grandiose score, this underrated sequel is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
Winnie the Pooh: Seasons of Giving
Join Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit and the rest of the gang as they come together to celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas! Sweet, innocent, and full of nostalgia, this seasonal special somehow slips through the radar. Well, not anymore!
I’ll Be Home for Christmas
Filled with hijinks and hilarity, this holiday comedy is surprisingly satifying. JTT plays a college student named Jake who is lured home for Christmas with the promise of an awfully nice sports car. How’s that for a present? Will he be able to snag the keys when troublemakers on the football team desert him in a Santa suit sans wallet? His promised Porsche isn’t the only thing he’ll have to worry about – looks like his main squeeze is cozying up to his rival as this holiday debacle unfolds.
Anna Kendrick stars as Santa’s daughter Noelle. When her brother Nick disappears after being appointed to the role of Santa, she goes on a mission to bring him back before the start of Christmas. You’ll also find a few fun on-screen appearances from Billy Eichner, Shirley MaClaine and Julie Hagerty! It’s silly, predictable, and exactly when the Holiday called for.
