Best Disney Animated Movies

The Top TenXW

1The Lion King

This movie is amazing! I have it at home and completely love it every time I watch it! This is definitely the movie I would recommend to anyone!

This movie is awesome in 4 directions animation, story, music, and sound effects (and it is epic) obvious my favorite Disney movie of all time

Let's see father killed raised by friends gets revenge an interesting plot with interesting characters and an amazing film

My chorus teacher let his 4-year-old daughter watch this and he told us, " I'm letting a 4 YEAR OLD watch a movie about betrayal, killing, and manipulation! Uh-Oh." - Tsunami66

Lion king people may say its mad old it came before the year 2000 well guess what it came out before the 2000 and its still the best movie they made

2Toy Story

OMG! This movie is the best! My 5 year old friend got me hooked. Now I watch it everyday I can! I even have the little toy peole form Toy Story. This movie is so awesome!
*Did you know the person who plays Ham (the piggy bank) has a part in every 'Disney Pixar Movie'*

Many people sadly think that this movie was a movie who did a revolution in the movies, but don't realize the fact that this movie isn't just that. I had seen several movies from Ghibli to pixar to disney, but this is the best in animated movie. What is good about the movie is that it is a movie for people who hates "friendship" or "love", and also for people who like that too. I am more for the "hate friendship theme in movies" side, but, it didn't bother me. This movie's entertainment is enough to forget the audience about the theme. This movie is plain genius. IF you don't think this movie is better than the third one(although the third one is a very great movie), I need to have a talk with you. The third will never go over the 1st or the 2nd.

I am in love with this movie. A great thing about it is that it even has good sequels. Sequels are never good! But the Toy Story ones are!

This is the greatest ever and never forgotten!

3Finding Nemo

This movie was well casted, musical score was beautiful and the storyline was never presented so well. I get emotional every time I watch!

this one's best for me. although it shares the same story line as lion king: father and son- story - this one lacks the music and wonderful soundtrack that completes a disney movie. the humor makes up for that loss, IMO.

Finding Nemo is the greatest animated movie of all time. You must be blind if you can't see that.

This movie is show us how big parents love is :')

This movie is, by far, the most awesome movie Disney has ever made! It's funny, romantic, adventurous: everything a movie needs!

"wow amazing movie... Hope someday I wish I could have a magic carpet to let me fly all over the world... And a magic lamp with genie inside to grant my wishes.. "

I love Aladdin. I can never pick my fav disney movie but this list has it right to be honest lol. Watching these movies bring me back to when I was little girl yet I am 20 yrs old and watch them all the time

One of my fave movies! I love the idea of magic and destiny. Go Aladdin!

5Beauty and the Beast

Belle is super Hot and I can say she is more than just a pretty face in this movie, she ventures out into the wilderness in search of her dad who is locked away in a castle. Belle goes through the harsh cold weather before reaching the castle, at the time she enters we see two comic reliefs. Lumiere and Cogsworth who kind of guide the girl to the tower, belle unknowingly follows a shining light to the top of some stairs and wonders who was walking here once she sees no one was there. In a split second you hear her dad in a chamber telling her she must go, but she disobeys and stays with her father until The Beast shows. The Beast thrusts her away from the chamber and Belle pleads the beast to let her father go but the horrid creature denies, Belle stands up to the beast and in a soft sweet voice says "take me instead." The Beast lowers his guard and asks her would she really do that, Belle says yes but the Beast says "you must stay here forever," belle replies "you have my word," Beast replies done unlocks the chamber lifts the old man by his claws to the castle entrance and tells the carriage "TAKE HIM TO THE VILLAGE."

No other Disney Princess is that Brave to give up their freedom for a loved one, most of them are usually selfish like Ariel or stupid like Aurora who touched the spinning wheel in Cinderella.
Another thing that was pretty shocking in this movie was Belles strength to pick up the Beast from the side of the ledge to save him from ultimate death.

Another hot person in this movie is Babette at the end of the movie, she is Lumieres love interest and I gotta give Lumieres and Prince Charming their props on the girls they have chosen.

Beauty and the beast is a movie that shows the core of a relationship and it's a true relationship is worth fighting for even to the death and I think that is one movie every boy and girl of all ages should watch.

I'm a 21 year old male and played the role as Beast in my school play so I know the deeper levels of each character. - Hollis33

I'm 21 and this movie has been my favorite since I first saw it when I was 2


This is the best Disney movie ever.I wonder why it Isn't number one

Mulan showed that being a woman does not mean you're incapable of doing things that society used to (and still does some places) consider "men things", suchs as fighting, making important decisions and speaking one minds up.

She is strong (mentally and physically), brave, intelligent and selfless, but still has her own flaws and is human. Perfect role model if you ask me!

I love this film it is best disney for me of all time! And I am part chinese so it means a lot to me so well done disney for making this film

I really like Mulan and the message it gives. She is probably on e of the greatest role modles for gilrs and women, out of movies of course. It also gives you a taste of what it was like for real women in ancient China. Great movie, but I am very surprised that it came in 5th place

Mulan is my all time favorite, lion king is second

Seriously... Up isn't on here? Not saying it needs to be first but top ten for sure.

What? Would think this would be in the top, around 8 or 7, that would make me feel nice. Though...17? This is all wrong. I think we should at least be ahead of Treasure Planet. Anyways, Up is my favorite movie from Disney, and one of my favorite ever. It's just amazing- SQUIRREL. - Miniman1676

This is the best animated film that's ever come out. Can't believe it isn't in the top 10. Come on people don't you like adventure, but I think if it would be in 3D than it would be even better because you feel like you could be there.

Definitely one of the most uplifting movies, despite the sad beginning.

Tangled is wihout doubt one of te SWEETEST movie I have ever watched in my life. I think there should be another series of Tangled, I'm looking foward to seeing Tangled 2! Go Disney! I love Eugene Fitzherbert <3:)

technically best movie ever made, and best voice match by mandy moore and zachary levi!

Funniest animated I ever seen

9The Little Mermaid

The most important Disney classic in my collection... It was my favorite from the first time I saw it and still is today!

The Little Mermaid has heart, soul, and great traditional hand-painted animation. It single-handedly saved the Walt Disney animation department.

On top of that, it feels like a real movie for adults and children. Not bad for a film made inside a bunch of mobile homes on Flower St.

I LOVE IT! Its my favorite movie of all times and always will be because it tells the life of a mermaid and the adventures she has while under water!

Such a gorgeous movie. The best music and lyrics of any cartoon. Watch it over and over and over again

10Toy Story 3

This is something else...
Greatest animated movie of all time... Hard to compete with it...
Very emotional, innovative, a different story line.. And fun story... Everyone's voices... Are awesome... They all created a masterpiece...
=COMPLETE MOVIE... Everyone can loved it... - hani_420

Heard of something called an "opinion", visitor? If they think it's the best you might as well let them like it. It's their own personal opinions. I like it myself. - smrpg1996

The best Toy Story ever made, and that means the best animation of all time!

I love this movie it has funny moments but I almost cried cause they were trying to get home and sometimes you have that feeling that they might die or not make it, but they made it, and I love all Toy Story movies cause they mean like you can do it and they push you to do your best its really nice. It has a very wonderful meaning to me that I truly understand.

The perfect ending for toy story trilogy!

The Newcomers

?Mulan II

Really I think this is the best fairy tale ever.1 she is showing that people can love who they want to love.2 it shows people can change a lot but you just have to live with it.3 she stands up to what she thinks in life should be.

The Contenders

11Monsters, Inc.

This should be number two. I remeber watching it. It was amazing! I went to disneyland and I was looking for something to take home. Then I saw Sully the stuffed animal I slept with it for a year. If you have not seen it yet then rent it or wait until Abc family shows it. Anyway it is worth the wait. IT IS AMAZING!

I might have a bit of a bias because this was the first movie I ever saw in a movie theater, however Monster's Inc. Is still probably my favorite Disney movie. It probably tied with Toy Story and Walle, but I think this should be higher up on this list. Sully is such a cute monster that you just want to hug and so his our secondary protagonist, Boo. It feels like your watching Sesame street but in a manner more oriented for both younger and older kids and even teenagers, such as me! Anyways you should definitely give this a shot. - Salsander

This movie was dubbed in Egyptian Arabic and was HILARIOUS... "mared washwshni" boo was the cutest kid ever!

I love this movie, especially the ending.

12The Incredibles

This movie is impressive, I can watch it every day and I would love to see a second part of it. I really think that it is appropriate to give to a child to watch, it make its view of the world different!

love it. wish I was violet. watched it a billion times. know every word by heart.

It was absolutely a fantastic movie. Really enjoyed watching it. One of my most favourite movies EVER!

I love this movie, and I love edna mode too.. She is so funny

Why in the world is this ranked 42?!?! This is seriously one of the best movies ever! (And I'm a teenager) I loved Elsa, I think she was definitely the best character. I loved how she was a good person overall but could be bad at times, like a normal person would. Not to mention that she's gorgeous. One of the prettiest Disney princesses so far. This movie had some amazing songs to. I honestly loved all of them. The cast was amazing and had great voices. It wasn't supur over romantic like a usual Disney movie. I loved how at the end Elsa was the act of true love and not Kristoff, I liked how they showed sisters and familial love. And Elsa's ice magic was was amazing. The animation was beautiful. The movie also has a lot of meaning if you really pay attention. Overall this is one of my all time favorite movies, not just Disney, all time! :$

This movie us number twelve, and this movie is overrated and boring you idiot.

WHY ON EARTH IS THIS 14? There are a BUNCH of morals and AMAZING relate-able characters. Olaf- Cute, charming, hilarious, super-natural and he has something to do with WINTER- MY FAVOURITE SEASON. Anna- Beautiful, bubbly, funny, determined and loyal. Elsa- Beautiful, Mature, powerful, reserved, not-idiotic, caring, compassionate and protective. Kristoff- hot, caring, likes-people-for-who-they-are and loyal. Sven- cute, funny, he-knows-best, fiercely loyal and friendly. This movie focuses on the relationship of SISTERS! So it's not your average Disney princess "I-am-going-to-wait-for-my-prince-on-a-white-horse". Girls have to do things for themselves. Plus (again) it's like winter! I love the magic of a snowy winter, even though it's in summer (watch the movie and you won't think I'm crazy)! I love Frozen, it's the reason I've dragged my family and friends out four times to see it (I would have seen it more, but no, they said we have seen it enough). The songs are AMAZING! And Let It Go is so inspirational! Took my breath away. Idina Menzel surely knows how to sing. Over all this movie captured my heart and made me completely hooked and obsessed! Please watch the film, and you will not regret it! By the way: Comes out this Monday in the UK, just saying'!

One of the best movies of all time! Should be up there with the lion king and the little mermaid. Beautiful, the characters are so relatable, the songs are amazing, the MANY morals are meaningful, it is modern, different, and kind of goes against everything Disney believes in. For example: love at first sight, (So Disney has been coming away from this for a while, but frozen has broken it off, with Elsa's famous "You can't marry a guy you just met" line. ), the guy saves the day in the end (which is what always happens, even if you don't see it at first. Just think about it for a moment... Okay, so you think the guy didn't save the day in the princess and the frog? Yes he did, because if he and tiana didn't fall in love, tiana would never had turned back into a human. And mulan? Well actually when the general guy spared her life, he also saved the story, so there. ) Okay anyways, in all Frozen is amazing, and people need to stop saying its lesbian because they are SISTERS! If you have a younger sister, hopefully you understand what I'm saying. There is a bold line between loving her like a sister and loving her like... that. And Frozen is clearly on the sister love side. So, one more thing about frozen being amazing: HAVE YOU SEEN ITS FAN BASE?!?!?! It is giant!

(Deep breath.) Okay, I'm done.

Guys? Really? No.13? This is the best movie ever! I love elsa... She's so beautiful. It should on number 1. This movie has so beautiful songs and best voice's ever.

I don't even like animated movies and this is one of my favorite movies of all time

I love WALLE Best movie everr! Its has so many good morals and ideas. It shows that we have to take care of our planet. All the while, it has a spin on a classic romance with some cute robots

My friend has a poodle who's name is Wall-E...
And truly, this movie was great. :-)

14?! Wall-E is should in top 10 at least!

15The Jungle Book

Classic on friendship, survival, being strong looking fear in the eye. How family is those who love you and take care of you!

Can't be beat. Its has such a good life lesson in it. Plus baloo is cool

Great Music, great characters, just an awesome movie all around.

16Wreck-It Ralph

Should be number one. First time I watched this I felt like I was living in the movie

Because of everyone who went in expecting an hour and a half game of "spot your favorite video game character" and got a movie with an actual plot, that's why this is ranked much lower than it should be.

When people get over the idea that every movie needs to be a cry-fest to be considered "great", when SJWs stop throwing "The Princess and the Frog" and "Mulan" in everyone's faces, yes and when people get over the fact that it wasn't two hours of old-school game cameos, then and only then will this movie be in its deserved spot.

Should be number 1 because of it's script.

The story of Cinderella teaches us something. It teaches that doing good for others will always result in good and the good people always suffers with trouble but at last the result comes for them is good. Some people make mistakes in learning the moral of Cinderella and it should be avoided. Come on only few people has the ability to understand the morals of the stories. It is true that Cinderella inspires us to look good things in others. It also gave the known proverb 'Rags to Riches'. Her sister did so bad with her but still Cinderella had helped her to get the man whom she loved. Someone says that cinderella sits and wishes fairy to come and help her but for their information let me tell that cinderella was only wishing for dreams to come true not for fairies to come. Cinderella's story also tells that dreams really do come true if you believe in them and it also teaches to be yourself and follow your heart. Have you all seen cinderella 1,2 and 3 movies you will understand by seeing them that cinderella is the best story of all and this is the story which every mother tells to her small daugter. And from there the small aged daughter always wishes just like cinderella did. I think that we all girls have cinderella in our heart.

Cinderella is not only a gorgeous piece of animation, but it also sends a gorgeous, inspirational message to children everywhere. Because of this movie, kids know that no matter where they are in their life, they can make a difference. That they can achieve a goal, that they can stand up for themselves, that dreams can come true!
Besides, "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo" is so catchy!

Cinderella exemplifies great morals. She is one of the few Disney protagonists who shows us that humility, resilience, and composure can be attained all at once. Her reactions to people who treated her poorly are incredible. She never once seeks vengeance because she is better than those who treat people poorly. Cinderella also never self-pities herself, but instead holds onto her dreams. Truly a beautiful role model for anyone on this planet. As she once said "Thank you, Thank you so much for everything".

So much better than suck-ass Lion King.

18Lilo & Stitch

I love this Movie! I've been watching this movie since I was 2 This movie definitely states the true meaning of Ohania (Family) And I love That Lilo is so Courageous and doesn't let anyone change who she is.

19The Fox and the Hound

If you are reading these comments, then believe everyone and me that this movie was amazing. I'm 14, and every time I watch it, I cry and cry. There's just something about it that makes it one of my most favorite disney movies. My other favorites are The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Aladdin, Mulan, and Pocohantas.

My name is Dustin Bible and this movie is my favorite of all time. It still makes me cry when I watch it. I named my dog Copper and my cat Todd. Yeah a guy can own a cat, it doesn't mean he is less of a man. It shows his sensitive side. So all you ladies out there just give me a call. That's Dustin Bible 276 495 1140

The saddest movie I have ever seen. Beautiful music too!

If only the world wouldn't get in the way,
If only people would just let you play.
They say you're both being fools.
You're breaking all the rules.
They can't understand
The magic of your wonderland.

20Big Hero 6

Words can't say how great is that movie, it has the best animation, the best (maybe predictable ) plot and also the characters are also relatable and cute as well (including Baymax). Besides that, the premise is amazingly sympathetic and the cinematography of this movie is one of the best in animation history. Totally one of Disney's best movies

This movies is unique. It is the first Disney movie where not one person has a love interest ( even in brave the parents did) and I thought they did a beautiful job with Hiro's character and I was glad he was the protagonist! It is also the few Disney movies where the main character turns into a villan! It's not as predictable as everyone thinks, because how many people thought Tadashi was Yokai? There was also some cliche's, but in it's defense it is a Disney movie, I think this is the best movie Disney ever created. Totally worthy of the top ten. - AnnaOfArendelle332

This can not be number 55! THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST ANIMATED MOVIE EVER! Not only does it send a good message and a caring character (Baymax), but it also has a REALLY cute main character (HIRO! ) (⌒▽⌒) - Lina1028

I love this movie! In my opinion, it's better than frozen. My dad saw it, and he actually liked it! And my mom didn't fall asleep while we were watching it in the theater! (she always falls asleep during a movie). This should be ranked higher!
