Best Disney Animated Movies

The Top Ten

1 The 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

I love this movie. It is by far one of the best Disney movies. though the lion guard ruined this movie series.

2 Toy 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!

When you are a kid you like toys so a film based on it is awesome

3 Beauty 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

I LOVE BEAUTY AND THE BEST WHO EVER LOVES THIS BE MY GUEST BE MY GUEST THIS MOVIE ROCKS THIS WORLD! GO BEAUTY AND THE BEAST I LOVE IT SO MUCH AND I EVEN LOOK LIKE BEL AND MY MOM CALLS ME BELL I LOVE Disney MOVIES SO MUCH ONE OF THE BEST Disney PRINCESS MOVIES AL I NOW HAVE TO SAY IS awesome AND DOUBLE THUMBS UP!

This is my favorite Disney movie of all time! So when I was 2 my mom put the Beauty and the Beast movie on for me. I was terrified of it! The beast scared me to death! But then my grandma took me to see the new movie and I loved it. My mom has loved this movie since she saw it in the theater as an adult. And now this has just been the type of movie I can watch over and over and over again and never get tired of watching it. The plot to the movie is amazing about how its not about what is on the outside it is the inside that matters. This is just an amazing Disney movie and animation is so perfectly done. I just love Belle's personality and thoughtfulness to the beast. Plus, Gaston is just one of the best Disney villains and so is Lefou. This is the best Disney movie ever! Hands down!

4 Aladdin

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

Awful though genie is occasionally funny. - majormanafemale

5 Finding 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.

I have mixed feeling on this movie as an oceanainc enthusist. - majormanafemale

6 Mulan

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

7 Up

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

I loved this film

8 Tangled

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.

A very underrated movie that deserves more attention! Absolutely breathtaking!

9 Monsters, 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!

Meh boo is cute. - majormanafemale

10 The 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.

I love it so much I mean literally people what is not to love about the little mermaid it played such a important part in my childhood especially since I loved mermaids

The Contenders

11 Toy 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

Have you ever realized that there's no such thing as "right" and "wrong"?

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.

This is the best movie I have ever seen in my life! Because the strategy used in this movie is amazing. Very very nice movie.
HATS OFF to Mr. Lee Unkrich!
With this movie Disney Pixar has proved that it is the best company for animation movies.
With this movie I became fond of animation movies!
My favorite character is Woody because he never loses self- confidence and he never gives up on his friends!
I think this movie shall be kept in the first place!
I expect more FANTABULOUS animation movies like Toy Story 3 from Disney!
DISNEY- U R GREAT!

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

I love this movie so much and it never gets old.

13 The 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!

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

Awesome

14 Frozen

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! :$

You're probably some 11 year old that likes Frozen and that you're remarking that you're a teen. And no offense, but I think Elsa and Anna are the worst sisters of all time. - Fandom_Lover

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

Awesome music, awesome animation, awesome characters, and a really good message and humor! I'm so glad they FINALLY have a Disney princess that DOESN'T marry the first man she meets!

Best movies of all time and this is my first movie in animation I loved this movie... It is awesome

15 Wall-E

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. :-)

This movie made for real something with me. every time I saw Wall-E being sad, I could barely hold my tears.

16 Hercules

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

Although it differs from the Greek myths I enjoyed pretty much everything about the movie. Hercules went from zero to hero and was able to reunite with his birth parents but chose his own path with Meg in the end. And Megara's character was so different from the average 'damsel in distress.' She was sarcastic, witty and able to take care of herself. She may have been working with the baddies at the beginning but that was because of her sacrificing herself for her previous boyfriend. These characters had a lot of emotional depth. I really loved the soundtrack too. It probably has one of my favorite disney songs "Go The Distance." - NerdBunny

17 Lilo & 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.

I love this movie I grow up on it and it is just a good kids movie I now when I was a kid I wanted to watch this movie 24/7 and I never got tiered of it but my mom did so I had to watch more movies than just one so I went to peter pan and well fell in love with that one to so my mom just kept buying Disney movies tell I got about nine years old and I wanted horror movies. But I still watch Disney movies every day. They are just adicting.

BEST Disney MOVIE EVER! IT IS FUNNY, had sci-fi action and also very heart warming

I don't hate the movie I just hate way it makes me feel. Somethings are awesome and some are meh. And not enough nonnie - majormanafemale

18 Wreck-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.

As much as I love The Lion King, Wreck it Ralph would have to be my favourite Disney Movie. I can watch it over and over again in one sitting, and I never ever get bored of it.
It has a nice story, and I absolutely love all the characters. Fix-it Felix is my personal favourite.
I also think it has a great soundtrack, and the animation is amazing. - BlazikenOverlord

19 Tarzan

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

I love Tarzan more than Mowgli. A lovely film with revenge, action and romance. The best in the film is the wild fight between Tarzan and Sabor. And I also liked Sabor, because like Sher Khan in the Jungle Book, he also a cat to end anyone on his way.

20 Bambi

Can't believe bambi isn't up there in the top ten! It makes me cry, even at 16, and it is truly a disney classic. Love it.

Bambi is a animated classic. I don't think this movie is as viewed as it is respected cause it's old and cute but Bambi is easily one of Disney's best. It has such powerful atmosphere and you just get sucked into the environment. What I also love about this movie is that you can enjoy it more as an adult than a kid and it doesn't have any cliches. It doesn't even have a plot or story and focuses on the character. It's a coming of age story told brilliantly.

Love this movie! I'm 20 and it's one of my all time favorites

It's to simple. - majormanafemale
