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

Do I even need to say why I adore this movie?

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'*

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!

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.

Creepiest movie, ever.

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

This is amazing because it has Robin Williams as the genie! Robin is very funny.

4Finding 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!

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

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 should be number 1

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 ...more - Hollis33

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


Beauty and the beast is the best movie ever!

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

A girl, thrown into a position that not only does everyone believe she doesn't belong in, but she herself thinks she could not bring honor to her family this way. A war, forcing her disabled father whom she loves, to be recruited and fight. This girl loves her father so much, she is willing to risk her life to keep him safe. One problem: girls aren't allowed to enter the war. When I first watched this movie, it made me laugh, cry, and cheer on Mulan as she broke down boundaries that divided men and woman, and basically won a war for her nation that forbade girls to do such things. While there is romance, it isn't "guys sees girl, guy falls for girl". In my opinion, Mulan is the best Disney princess, not because she fell in love with someone important, not because something wonderful happened to her. Its because something horrible happened to her, and she was strong enough to overcome it. And yet, no matter how amazing I try to make her, she's still human, she still has flaws. Also, ...more

Most amazing princess movie of all time

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

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.

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

There is something fabulous in this movie for everyone. It is the best

8Toy 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 Caterpillar room was creepy

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!

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!

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.

Makes me so happy every time I watch it.

10Monsters, 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!

Like Sully and Mike and think it is a good way to like monster (even though they aren't real)

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

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

A wonderful movie that anyone at any age or gender can watch, and most definitely enjoy. The animations are beautiful. I really love the story line too. Actually, I love everything about this movie. I've watched it countless times, and it never fails to make me feel light and happy. The movie pulls me into the story so much. I laugh, and the next moment I'm crying. Then I'm melting because it's all so cute and sweet. And the list goes on.

The voice actors were perfectly cast! Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi singing together was amazing. Oh, and have I mentioned Rapunzel and Eugene are so cute?! Every character in the story is unique in its own way. It brings back the original 'Disneyness'; innocent, pure, and sweet. 'Tangled' will definitely stay as my favorite movie for a very long time.

I love this movie so much

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!

Just three more years until the sequel is released! I don't care how old I'll be. I'm just Dying to see the sequel anyway

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.

Very good special effects, amazing music, good characters, and funny moments. Its like Disney/Pixar is actually rising from their downfall!

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! ...more

This movie made me feel like a child again. Few movies can do that.

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. :-)

I mean it's a little boring at times but also really sweet

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.

One of my absolute all time favorites

A fantastic movie about a man finding out who he is underneath prejudice and loneliness... Plus it has Phil Collins providing the score and Brian Blessed as Clayton, HELL YES
I would have chosen Aladdin for Robin Williams as Genie alone but Tarzan is just beautiful

I love the music in this movie. Phil Collins is awesome. I have the soundtrack and him and NSYNC are great when they sing together.

You can't watch this movie without feeling sincerely touched. Everything is so beautiful - from the plot to the characters to the music, it's al just perfect. It's a real shame that this movie isn't higher up on the list together with movies such as "The Lion King" and "Beauty and the Beast". To all of you out there who wants to be touched and see a awesome movie - WATCH TARZAN, now

A really underrated movie

Why was this movie not on the list until just now? I love love LOVE this movie! (Despite it differing from the actual ancient Greece mythology, but that's really besides the point. ) Prepare yourselves for a rant Here we go...
First, we have the handsome yet clueless and accident prone Hercules as the hero, and we have a Disney princess (Megara) who actually betrays her "prince" and then saves his life BEFORE dying (and coming back to life. ) Not to mention Hades (James Woods- he totally nailed the voice, ) is probably one of the cleverest, funniest villains I've ever seen.
Hades: How sentimental. You know, I haven't been this choked up since I got a hunk of moussaka caught in my throat.

This is a Disney Movie that makes me wish we where back in the time zone when Disney made movies like these again! Would watch it every night if I had the time to! 10 out of 10.

Words cannot describe this film... IT IS AWESOME! 'At least out loud, I won't say I'm in love.. ' This movie taught me to love... And to sing

I love this movie! I can't believe it has been forgotten.

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 ...more

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".

One of the best films ever made. Never ever ceases to amaze and warm your heart.

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

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!

I love this movie! To those of you saying it was predictable and filled with cliches...maybe so but really, what Disney movie hasn't fallen back on cliches? It's a funny, heart-felt movie packed with action and a fun lot of characters. And the animation is seriously gorgeous. There's something here for both children and adults.
