Top 10 Best Disney Movies

The Top TenXW

1The Lion King

Here's how I think this list should have been made (in MY OWN opinion):
1. The Lion King, hands down. Nothing can dethrone this.

2. Aladdin, obviously. Amazing plot, amazing villain, amazing Robin Williams, and no it's not just about him. This movie overall is one of the best, regardless.

3. Oliver & Company. Surprised? Well, hear me out. When talking about my FAVORITE Disney movie, this one takes it. When talking about what I believe to be the BEST, it lands itself here in my book. Why? Because compared to most other Disney movies, it has much more of a realistic feel to it. It also has really great morals, such as how you can find love and hope anywhere no matter what situation you're put through. If you haven't watched this movie, you need to. You'll get what I mean once you do.

4. 101 Dalmatians. Seriously, how can this one be so low on here? I find the plot of this to be one of the most intense and epic story lines in Disney history.

5. I'd say a ...more

Amazing. True, deep, and emotional. Storyline is such an important topic, and the movie deals with courage, death, grieving, friendship, and many other topics besides princess gets prince. Best ever. - davidthenurse

Ya... it is the best. It is basically just an animal version of Hamlet and with less death, but it's the most well told and memorable characters which is contested for that by the little Mermaid.

Also, why are their Pixar movies on this list... They are not Disney movie, they are just a sub-studio of the Disney license. - masongilbert74

Love the movie but not the best

No no no no no! This list is messed up... Frozen at 2!?!? That movie was good but there is plenty of more great Disney films! And Tim Burtons Alice in Wonderland... Really? What about the MORE FUN 1951 classic version?! And no Disney movies BEFORE Walt died!? REALLY! Somebody has to admit it and it might as well be me. THIS LIST IS TERRIBLE. - Disneylover1959

This and Mulan are the best Disney films (or even films) of all time! All the songs are the fantastic and it is unlike any other Disney film that there has been! I love frozen and everything but it in no way compares to films like Aladdin, Mulan etc.

How is this not #1? It has the most creative character of any Disney film, one of the most complex villains, and the setting and coloring of the movie is unique compared with other Disney movies

Are you kidding frozen SUCKS!

3The Fox and the Hound

A great movie!, one of my favorites! This movie gives a true message about friendship, and the entire movie was heartwarming. It's obvious that it deserve to be in the top 10.

I love this movie. It's very touching and pretty much made me cry... Should defiantly be above Frozen! =_=

I love this movie! Along with Lion King, this movie has a sad, yet intriguing and amazing plot.

I'm surprised but it is a good movie.

5Beauty and the Beast

A great film and my all time favourite. It teaches children that looks aren't everything and that's a good lesson for them to learn. Its amazing and just the best Disney film. It should be number 1

This is definitely my all time favourite. Beautiful, music is stunning, characters are great, villain is scary (even if everyone love you, Gaston, you are scary... ) Belle is so cool princess, bookworm, clever, kind etc. I can't tell how much I love this film. It's perfect.

On my all time favorite movies this ranks at #4 or #3 and I'm a guy considered a badass in school. by the way this is my brother's account. - evil7

I absolutely love this film

7The Aristocats

The Aristocats is a movie that fun and charming. It has great characters, songs, and story. My only downside is that Oliver & Company is the better of Disney's two cat movies. Other than that, this movie is excellent. It deserves it's spot at #7.

Cause everybody wants to be a cat.

The Aristocats is the best Disney film and the best animated film I have seen. It's even better than Frozen which is saying a lot.

Great movie! Loved it ever since I were a kid!

Loved that she wasn't made the typical damsel in distress. Made me wish I could go on an adventure some day with a frying pan, pet chameleon and magical hair that heals all wounds.

Hands down tangled is the best disney movie I have ever seen. Many movies came very close in my opinion but this one just touched me and never left.

I really like this movie. Highly recommended that you watch this movie.

I love any thing with rapunzel in it

9Finding Nemo

This Movie was well casted musical score was beautiful and the storyline was never present so well I Get emotional every time I Watch

This movie was 10% of my childhood. I was 10 when it came out.

Thanks Pixar. This movie has amazing characters (Nemo and Squirt are my favorite), Brilliant Animation (please keep up the good work Pixar), and an adventurous, amazing plot.

Entertaining, funny, touching! This movie is the most incredible movie you could ever watch! It never gets old!

This should be so much further up. How dare you put a story between a son and his father at eleventh!

This and all the other Pixar films are behind Frozen? I get why they are behind The Lion King, but other than technically not being native-Disney films, there is no reason they should be behind Frozen. Let's face it - Frozen is very overrated and has earned way too much appreciation that it's come to this.

This list is such a joke. Camp Rock in the top ten but Up, WallE, Finding Nemo, etc not even on this list? Give me a break - white_puma

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

It's a great movie

The Newcomers


My librarian is reading this bbok to me but I love it!

The Contenders

11Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 is one of my favorite movies! The saddest thing about it is that it didn't win Best Picture.

It's a good movie.

But if you are like me who grew up with Toy Story 1. You are going to find yourself crying like a baby over this one. (Even if you are a Male like me so beware. )

Rather dark, upsetting scenes and lots of Abandonment...

<:, (

The Best Toy Story ever made and that means the bets animation of all time

If Frozen ends up being #1 I think I will cry - MoldySock

12The Jungle Book

Why is The Jungle Book so low? It's the best Disney movie ever? With funny characters, great songs, inspiring dialogues and memorable moments. It should be at least in the top 10!

The Jungle Book is both beautiful and fun. It's songs, characters, and story are more memorable than any movie made since The Lion King. This should be #3 behind Bambi and Dumbo.

Definitely one of the most underrated Disney films! This should be at least in the top 10! It's that good! I love "Bare Necessities", "I wanna be like you", the villain Sher Kahn is awesome, and so is Baloo!

I never watched it in my life

V7 Comments

Bambi is the most beautiful movie ever made. It should be #2 after Dumbo. It teaches us the importance of nature and what happens when people don't put out fires. It was the first environmental movie ever made. Even Walt Disney himself considered this the best movie he ever made.

This film is beautiful. The animation spectacular, the voice acting is just spot on, I could go on! Why is it so damn underrated?!?! - MontyPython

I know right? This and The Fox and the Hound are my all time favorites! More people should see these movies! - Disney1994

Better than the lion king, frozen and all the Disney princess movies combined.

Very nice very very nice movie

14Big Hero 6

That ALL the comments here are saying how much better this is than "Frozen" and especially that "thank heavens I (and other Frozen Haters) are saved" one is why a lot of people think this only got popular because of Frozen Haters wanting the next Disney animated movie no matter what it was to dethrone "Frozen" and why there are few if any who actually truly like this movie on its own merits.

How is this at 54? This is the best Disney movie EVER. This movie makes Frozen look like crap. This is one of those movies I could watch every day until the day I die. This should be #1 for crying out loud!

The only reason why this isn't as popular is because they released Frozen earlier than this, with wild promotions flying here and there in your face - they totally forgot to promote Big Hero 6 with as much attention as they did with Frozen. Diverse characters, good plot and life lessons taught.

Ugh nothing personal, but seriously. No memorable characters, pretty shallow plot, obvious bad guy, resulting in not much of a twist ending, and that silly unrealistic Disney ending. Just, why.

Like any great piece of art Frozen has run it's course of popularity and now the people are growing tired of it. But let's be honest this is a movie people are still watching, will continue to watch, and will share with generations to come. It's strange to see a kids fantasy movie take the world by storm like this but hey when the Lion King came out it got the same kind of backlash after people got sick of seeing it everywhere. So it'll come back once the overmarketing goes down a little. We'll look at it as another great mark in Disney History, all the achievements they accomplished with the ice and snow actually led to the great effects of the Microbots in Big Hero Six, so why should I complain if it's everywhere. I'd rather have kids and adults everywhere obsessing over this than completely unoriginal and uninspired works that Hollywood likes to push on us. It's my favorite movie and will continue to be my favorite for years to come.

4# no no no! The only reason people like this sorry excuse for a movie is because of the stupid ice powers! Why is let it go so popular!? It's just another song! People sing it everywhere they go! I makes me want to stab somthing! Why does everyone like I mean LOVE Elsa! The only thing she did was freeze the kingdom, freeze Anna, then cry after realizing it was entirely her fault! ( which took her long enough) if this ever gets to 1# I will EXPLODE! I'll probably get a lot of hate from this but oh well - Thatgirl

Actually this used to be #2. So it's not going up. It's going down. On the other hand, Aladdin used to be #4 but is the new #2. Well back then Beauty and the Beast was three but at first swapped with Aladdin, then Aladdin swapped with Frozen, then Frozen swapped with Beauty and the Beast. So first it was 2 Frozen, 3 Beauty and the Beast, and 4 Aladdin, then it was 2 Frozen, 3 Aladdin, and 4 Beauty and the Beast, then it was 2 Aladdin, 3 Frozen, and 4 Beauty and the Beast, now it's 2 Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and 4 Frozen. Also look at The Fox and the Hound. It was at 10 first, but now it's 6. That might become the new #4! At least I certainly hope so. Then Frozen will be #5 and you can feel better (me too since I love The Fox and the Hound).

No you immature dumb stupid annoying people this should be off the list immediately like right now oh and also this movie doesn't deserve to be in the top 10 so shut up singing Let it go because you make me really sick it makes me feel like you don't even watch any movies you are just sitting in the living room waisting your time watching this AWFUL DIRTY CRAP!

Guys... Frozen is good but it's NOT an inspiring movie in my opinion

I can't stand this movie!

Even though it was sad when People were teasing Dumbo because of his huge ears, and his mother was locked up in a cage with a note saying "Mad Elephant", It was really good! It was my favorite hand drawn disney movie! I cannot believe they don't make movies like this anymore! They should've released Dumbo 2! It had funny parts like in the pyramid of pachyderms when the female elephants were falling a lot and sat on other elephant heads and faces. Overall It was perfect! Great plots, Great soundtrack (Especially When I see and Elephant Fly, Baby Mine, Pink Elephants on Parade, and Casey jr. This should be way higher on the list.

Dumbo should be in the Top 10. It's a beautiful story that shows how one can succeed in life despite hardships. Beautiful animation, story, beautiful songs, and an inspiring message are the reasons this movie is better than anything Disney has made since The Lion King. Forget Frozen. Forget Tangled. Forget about every Disney movie made since The Lion King. This should be #1.

Come on people, The Little Mermaid III is NOT better than Dumbo! This deserves so much higher than 51.

17Monsters, Inc.

Monsters, Inc at 41? This is where Frozen should be

Monsters inc should be higher. It's awesome!

(2001) John Goodman, Billy Crystal

Great movie. Should be higher on the list.

18The Hunchback of Notre Dame

While I can clearly see why it isn't number one as it is quite a bit of an acquired taste, I can't help but see this movie as my favorite. The story is interesting, the characters are some the most complex made by Disney, the songs are pretty much all on the scale of the big songs from other Disney movies (Circle of Life, Part of your World, A Whole New World, etc. ), the animation is some of the most refined the studio has ever created, and the voice acting is some of the most passion-filled I've ever heard (Just listen to the Quasimodo section of Out There and then try to tell me I'm wrong).

Shame it's so underrated. Dark as hell, though. Tony Jay and Tom Hulce were amazing in this and easily has the best songs, Bells of Notre Dame, Hellfire, Court of Miracles, and there's a Latin church choir for dramatic moments

This is my favorite, beauty and the beast after. though true, its an odd film, however contains some form of history (judgement etc) its passionate, and strong, gladly not as dark as very first written by victor Hugo. the voice acting is perfect, and it gives a good message, kind of the same as the beauty and the beast. I love the complicated and complex design of the characters, Esmeralda being a little cocky but also gentle and kind, and Quasimodo who snaps quickly if his emotions go crazy. I love this film, it under rated.

Very glad to see where Hunchback is on this list! Really made up for the mess that was Pocahontas the year before, and was the last great "Hoorah" of the Disney Renascence.

(Also, Frozen was a good movie, don't get me wrong, but it's placement is completely unjustified)

19The Rescuers

This is yet another beautiful Disney movie about friendship is courage. It's much more memorable than the likes Frozen, Aladdin, Mulan, or even Toy Story. This should be in the Top 10 after Beauty and the Beast.

This movie was my childhood, nothing beats the rescuers!

This should not be in the top 20

20Wreck-It Ralph

I over 100% want the sequel to be famous, 'because I know it will involve Mario! & he'll cast more lines than usual! I also hope that a Wreck-It-Ralph 3 will be famous & if it was, it'd have Mario in it! & besides, it is a very grand thing they put Aiai from Super Monkey Ball & Pac-Man (though I wanted his Pac-Man Party design) in the original (& only film so far) Wreck-It-Ralph!

Seriously, Wreck-It Ralph is so underrated. Easily Top 3.

I love this movie so much it has a great message! I always cry when you when wreck it Ralph falls!

I'm gonna wreck it
