Best Disney Animated Movies

Disney is a company that most people should know exists. It has created some of the greatest animated movies in history. From the first film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Disney has been in business since 1937. Here we will list the greatest Disney animated movies ever created.
The Top Ten
1 The Lion King The Lion King Product Image

This film really blew disney out of the water. I love this movie! I always think of it whenever I see anything related to Africa, and I just was blown away by how amazing it is.
I was a little nervous when I heard that a new lion king was being made, because the first one was truely spectacular! I sat down in the theatre, and quickly ate up my junior mints, and when the movie started, I was already blown away by the amazing animation! Just woah!
The new version was better than I thought, but wasn't even CLOSE to the heart, and spirit of the original. I'm glad they brought back the voice of Mufasa, because that was what made the lion king... well- the lion king!
This hamlet like story is so amazing on so many levels. This is my favorite Disney movie!
There is actually, one disney movie that stands back to back with the lion king, and that movie is the story of a girl who must find herself, who she really is inside. Her reflection. And that movie is called Mulan.

This is a great movie! There are Disney movies out there I like better, but there kinda old. And why the hell is Lady and the Tramp on this list?

Ok... my favorite character was baby simba like in the first few sceness... ADORABLE

This movie completly is the best disney movie ever and including the live action remake! Though in the live action, they ruined scars song which is the best disney villain song ever, doesn't matter...

The original is the best!

If you have never seen The Lion King, then you don't have a complete childhood. I remember watching this movie for the first time when I was six or seven, and it is still my favorite Disney movie. Why watch it? The animation is top notch, including the amazing CGI "wildebeest" moment, the characters develop in such incredible ways, there are truly memorable lessons, and the movie combines Shakespeare, the Bible, and African folk legends all to create a fun, emotional movie for adults and children. Oh yes, and the music, thanks to John Elton, is the best I've ever heard in an animated film, from the epic Circle of Life sequence to the hilarious Hakuna Matata. This movie is also the highest grossing animated film in history. The Lion King truly shows how important standing up for yourself, friends, and life are.

2 Toy Story Toy Story Product Image

I didn't know this list included Pixar, which for me as to be viewed as its own thing. But, nonetheless, I have to say that Toy Story is my favorite Disney animated movie and my favorite animated movie of all time. I love the chemistry between the characters Woody and Buzz and the cast of secondary characters are also very lovable, well-acted and well animated. Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are perfect as Woody and Buzz, respectively and their performance should not be overlooked just because its an animated movie. If in this list we were only talking about Disney animated features and not count the Pixar movies I would have to say that Fantasia was my favorite.

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.

Ah Toy story, the movie that made me purposely leave my toys out on the floor thinking they would come to life when I got back home. As with most good disney moves Toy Story promoted belief in the childlike mind of the viewer, expanding their horizon further

Why the heck does everybody think this movie is the best?! It is not! The second and third films of Toy Story are better than this one! This film sucks! When you watch this film it makes you lost and will not let you connect with the characters, that what I always feel by it! Toy story 2 was better, I connected with the characters perfectly. Toy story 3, even better.

3 Aladdin Aladdin Product Image

Aladdin is my number one movie I have loved it my whole life, my top ten disney movie's are...
#1 Aladdin,
#2 the little mermaid,
#3 wreck-it ralph,
#4 frozen,
#5 finding nemo,
#6 the emperor's new groove,
#7 mulan,
#8 the princess and the frog,
#9 toy story,
#10 lilo & stitch,
there are a lot of other great disney movies out there but this are my top ten.

my number one pick I love this movie the part with the magic carpet ride is the best part I would love a hot guy to come take me away on a magic carpet ride just the two of us.

Aladdin deserves to be number one. Every single song ("One Jump Ahead", "Friend Like Me", "Prince Ali" and "A Whole New World") is brilliant, the characters are beautiful and Robin Williams' charisma make the film classic Disney. Aladdin is a timeless piece, which can be watched again and again. I love it!

Toy Story before Aladdin? Really? Toy Story shouldn't even be in the top ten. The animation of Aladdin is far more superior, and the plot is also more interesting with better musical numbers. Robin Williams, may he rest in peace, was amazing in this film as well. Aladdin should be number one.

4 Beauty and the Beast Beauty and the Beast Product Image

This movie not only has wonderful music and but also the fantasy, characters, singing, and script. An all time greatest Disney story about that actually tells the whole story of how 2 learn to fall in love. For example Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Little Mermaid and Lion King and all the others is just love in the snap of a finger. It's #100 perfect legendary Disney movie all will love.

as belle being my favorite disney princess ever made, this is clearly the best disney movie ever made! I loved the songs the characters (except for gaston) I loved the love story, I loved the plot of the movie, etc! I just loved it!

Great in every aspect of animated film making. Beautifully animated, great score and songs, fantastic storytelling aspects that are much deeper than people give it credit for, especially when you realize Belle isn't the main character, the Beast is, it definitely becomes much more than just a love story, it becomes a redemptive story that asks the question 'what does it mean to be human? ' Not to mention a great cast of characters. None of them feel hokey or out of place (I'm looking at you Hunchback gargoyles). I know Lion King is always going to be the forerunner, and even I think that is my personal favorite, but when discerning the best as objectively and unbiased as I can I think Lion King lacks some of the deeper story elements that BatB has, which puts it over Lion King by just a touch.

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!

5 Finding Nemo Finding Nemo Product Image

This movie is garbage. Basically about a overprotective father who loses his annoying son Nemo. And dory is annoying annoying. All she does is forget. And this movie is scary. The Darla character is creepy and scared me and my kids. Nemo is just as bad as high school musical. I would recommend the lion king over this garbage

This is likE one of my favorite movies of all time-- some bits are funny and some sad. I like how the setting was based in Australia Because I have travelled to Australia and it is such a beautiful country. I didn't expect a Disney movie to be set in Australia. I recommend that you should vote for Finding Nemo!

When does Finding Dory comes out? This movie is awesome, and also helped me through my roughest times... This movies like this one, are one of the greatest and should be at least on top with next to Lion King.. It also helped Talia... Remember at your roughest times " Just keep swimming "...

Rest In Heaven, Princess

Finding nemo is an animation wonder! Such beauty and divine, and much work was put into this Jewel of animation! Such imagination was put into this piece of artwork! This is the center of animation! This is the heart and soul of crisp animation, of glorious plotting, and just good storytelling

6 Mulan Mulan Product Image

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

Love conquers all, but Mulan is the first Disney movie to show that romantic love is not the only kind of love to conquer all.

Mulan is more than just a girl dressing up as a man and do men's stuff; it is about what you are willing to do to save those you love - even if you are putting the family's reputation and honor as well as your own life at risk. In other words: Mulan is about Family Honor vs. Family Love.

Mulan is a fun and relatable heroine. She is nothing special and is not portrayed as such either. She does not get her man in the end by being a pushover - she gets him by being herself: a non-ladylike, strong and smart woman with a great deal of courage, bravery and sense of moral and justice.

I really loved Mulan, and still do. She has shown that, just because you're a female, you can still do things that a lot of people think are "male things". Basically, Disney's way of calling everyone who thinks only men are capable of certain things out. She was supposed to be a housewife, but she was a soldier to save her injured dad, loving someone so much that she broke and bended rules even when she, and everyone else, thought she wasn't good enough. She faked being a man, and every day she never knew if she would be discovered, and she was immensely brave. She knew what might have happened if she were discovered, but she still faked being a man. And she tried and tried and never gave up, but Disney also did a great job at showing that she still had flaws and that she was still human. Totally recommend it.

WOW I can't stress out how much I love Mulan! She's a great role model for girls all ages. Look at all the other Disney princesses, skinny, wearing pretty silk dresses, and showing NO heroism, whatsoever. Look at Mulan, wearing men's armor, fighting like a true warrior oh, and I forgot, SAVED ALL OF China AND PROVED GIRLS CAN DO MUCH MORE THAN LOOK PRETTY! Not to mention, those great funny moments, and the songs, especially the songs. I can't get the " Lets get down to business, and defeat... THE HANS" song out of my head! I've memorized the whole song laugh out loud. A movie that every girl ages 5-16 has to see.

7 Up Up Product Image

I am shocked that Up isn't even in the top 5! What on earth?! This movie is amazing! And beautiful! It portrays actual adventure and friendship! Especially adventure! If you are an adventure-lover like myself, vote for this movie! This movie's incredible! And I love the all music they offer there. Especially the theme song! Whenever I hear the theme song of this movie, I imagine balloons floating up in the blue clouded skies through the sunlight!

Up is my favourite disney pixar movie ever. I love the relationship between the characters, I also love the plot and how they need to find an adventure before reaching paradise. I wish they made a second one because if they did that would be the best thing in the world and in disney pixar history. I even have a little story line of my own if they ever want to create one. - Reign

Currently 11th on the list, the only way is 'Up' and that is were it should stay. The opening montage itself is a stand alone piece of magic, it's an animated classic, that not only entertains adults and children a like, but it doesn't allow adults to lose site of the child inside them, whilst also allowing children to engage in adult concerns, in a funny, poignant and engaging way. Surely Top 10 worthy.

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.

8 Monsters, Inc. Monsters, Inc. Product Image

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.

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!

That thing mad me laugh koloskie said I can't see hey I'm little then this big fat gray monster said you don't belong here and his eyes were adorable so he got an idea he saw this grenn thing this man was rolling so he went in to it. So this boy crossed the line then the big grenn Harry boy said mike koloskie that thing made me laugh real good yo people watch it, s so funny it mad me laugh untill I conundrum stop dang that thing was good best rver

I used to watch this everyday when I was younger and I'd always cry at the end for some reason. This movie holds so many great memories for me and even though Monster's University was okay, it will never measure up to this animated masterpiece.

9 Toy Story 3 Toy Story 3 Product Image

This should TOTALY be No. 1. Better than the first BY FAR! I don’t see all the fuss about lion king. It’s kinda overrated. It’s just Macbeth with lions...

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 my favorite movie daisy is my favorite character all world like this movie and woddy and space rock I don,t know the name is my best movie character maybe this movie got 100,000,000,000,000,000 this much money... I like this movie very much...bye...

Toy Story 3 is the 2nd best movie I've seen in 2010 (1. inception), this movie was also surprisingly dark, but I thought it was perfect for it's tone because the toy's are at their lowest in this film. This movie was a perfect conclusion that I actually don't want a Toy Story 4, because PIXAR was not what it used to be when Cars 2 came out, (I mean I loved Inside Out, and Finding Dory was good, but the rest is just.crud.)

10 Wreck-It Ralph Wreck-It Ralph Product Image

I agree that this deserves higher, but because the main character was a white male and another main character was not only a white male but a Southern-fried "good ol' boy", it doesn't have the support of the SJWs. Yes, there are also two female main characters who fit the "strong" bill but they're both white and one of them is also blond. SJWs are the only reason "The Princess and the Frog" and "Mulan" haven't otherwise faded into obscurity, and their praising of "Big Hero 6's" non-white leads caused that movie to instantly overshadow "Wreck-It Ralph".

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.

This movie wasn't all that great. I think that Brave did deserve the Oscar over this. Sorry. I mean don't get me wrong I enjoy this movie but the relationship between Ralph and Vanellope is so forced and it feels unnatural. I love the premise of the movie also. It all sadly doesn't score all that well with me.

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.

The Contenders
11 Tangled Tangled Product Image

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.

Finally another classic... such a beautiful world to be immersed into. Ultimately a relatable tale of a girl growing into a woman and finding herself, finding her place- in typical Disney style. The best recent animated film for sure, brings back memories of the other classics I loved seeing as a kid. Rapunzel is so cute and relatable!
- being a 21 year old this movie is for girls of all ages!

I'm a guy and I'm 19 years old. Yet, watching Tangled affected me like no film ever has before. It is without a doubt THE best film of all time and so definitely the best Disney film :) It's a technical masterpiece and an unbelievably romantic story. How can computer generated characters evoke such powerful feelings? When the movie was over I felt like I had fallen back into a world I no longer wanted to live in. There is just no contest in my opinion

Tangled is by far... My most favourite movie... The movie has comedy... What with eugene's disguise as flinn... And it is very very sad (I actually cried when I watched it for the first time... Super awesome movie), and it has romance, and rapunzel is very pretty too... And she's the lost princess and I dunno what all to say... I have watched this movie for like 60 times and mind my words, when I say 60, I mean sixty... ;p... Its just like BEST MOVIE EVERR... !

12 The Incredibles The Incredibles Product Image

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!

Part of the reason I love this movie is because my whole family really relates to it. This should be higher. It shows more serious topics (like suicide and genocide) and turns it into something fun and exciting!

Brad Bird really put a lot of effort on this film, and I like the fact that it's just a bit more mature and edgier than usual Disney fare.

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

13 The Little Mermaid The Little Mermaid Product Image

I've seen all the classic movies, and I absolutely love them all. but it was the little mermaid that really made me pay attention and grow to understand meanings within the movies themselves... not to mention that it is a CLASSIC movie... and it is even written that if it hadn't been for the success of the little mermaid during the era it came out, pretty much none of the other movies we all know and love would have even been made. it set up the potential and the inspiration for the disney renaissance that made so many amazing and memorable movies (I. e. , the lion king, beauty and the beast, aladdin, etc. ). it is and forever will be my most favorite and prized disney movie til the day I die!

This is a classic to me. It's all about a rebel trying to follow her dreams, and sticking it out even when things look hopeless. She rescues the prince three times as well, which is not half bad for a Disney Movie. The story also has strong metaphors regarding biracial love, and how it triumphs over bigotry and cultural differences. And on top of that the music and imagery are amazing. Who doesn't know Part of Your World or Under The Sea? Plus there are not many ginger heroes in fiction, so it was nice seeing a Disney Princess I could relate to visually.

My best animated movie with the songs "under the sea" and "kiss the girl". Still love it then,still love it now,will love it forever...

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.

14 Big Hero 6 Big Hero 6 Product Image

This movie to be honest made me cry definitely at the end where Baymax had to say good bye to Hiro which made my heart break. In my opinion this movie kind inspired me to choose a path in electronics because of all the tech that was in the movie and the possibilities that could happen in our daily lives. This movie definitely was a movie that had not only good graphics but also the story plot was amazing. I would definitely watch this movie again.

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.

Come on. It's Big Hero 6! Firstly, the plot wasn't some kind of sappy fairy tale. (Not that all animated Disney movies are like that, but most of them on this list are.) Second, the animations were pretty good. The characters were deep and well thought out. The climax was pretty interesting, and the twist added a lot to the story. (SPOILER ALERT: Dr. Callaghan is the guy in the mask.) Either way, I think Big Hero 6 should be higher on the list.

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

15 Zootopia

I love how this movie shows a PERFECT example of the real world. It deserves to be on the TOP of this list! It's amazing how someone could come up with such a story that best shows how the real world is today. It shows a perfect example of how fear could turn into racism. And I loved the plot too, how it's even a surprise villain! This movie so deserves an award. It's very colorful and entertaining, plus, we all love animals don't we? It also shows the great friendship between a bunny and a fox, and how the real world is like. How people are. How everything is made to be messy. How we can solve that. How we are all ONE. I love this movie, and I rate it 5 stars, 100% Amazing Animation too, and great music. Loved it.

So unique, DOES NOT deserve to be so low on the list!? I've honestly seen so many movies in the past, but never anything like this one. It gives so many great morals and messages on how the real world is, instead of some being some happy-go-lucky fantasy like all other Disney movies. This movie actually taught us that you'll need to work hard and overcome challenges in order to be who u want to be, but the most important part is to keep believing! I honestly loved the main characters of this movie, showed a great concept of the real world too, and how we should start loving each other instead of developing so much unnecessary fear, hatred and racism

NO SPOILERS
The Lion King and Zootopia are by far and wide the absolute best animated animal movies of all time. They are tied. While Lion King provides a breathtaking story with great animation by today's standards, Zootopia brought us a view of world politics with a seemingly innocent kids movie about a bunny following her dreams to become a police officer. The main theme is following your dreams while overcoming adversity. Combine the theme with sprinkles of intentional racism, and you get this. I usually wouldn't recommend racism, or any touchy subject, for a movie like this, but Zootopia does it so well, with the predator/prey aspect. The plot is developed really well, with an unexpected twist at the end, the animation is the best Disney CGI has been, dare I say better than Moana, and the characters, OH THE CHARACTERS, are written and voiced beautifully. Not the best Disney movie to get your kids introduced to (probably Frozen), but this is the best one.

In relation to modern-day issues of panic and prejudice, while learning the values of trust and tolerance, it's a timeless film with morals kids and parents alike can relate to. All supported by a cast of colorful, memorable characters and a memorable score combined a fast pace race to uncover a criminal conspiracy and funny bits of dialogue and humorous scenes along the way.

16 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Product Image

this is the best Disney film ever made I mean you have the iconic seven dwarfs who are all so humorous and you have iconic amazing songs. The Queen is easily the best Disney villain in history.

'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' (1937) remains the most impressive full-length animated film of all time, and no computers were used! In terms of dramatic story development, awesome animation and brilliant color, not to forget eight timeless songs, this movie ranks among the best motion pictures in the history of cinema. I'm always enthralled by the marvelous 'Silly Symphony' sequence; everything about it is superb! It's amazing how each of the seven dwarfs has his distinct personality, and also how endearing the animals are. Snow White herself captures our emotions; we love her innocence and fear for her life at the hands of the evil queen, her stepmother. When the dwarfs morn her lifeless preservation in a glass coffin, we empathize with them. It's incredible how the use of thousands of drawings are able to influence the viewer's mind and heart! A work of creative genius, this film is a gem for all ages. "Walt Disney's Folly" (as it was know) became the most successful animated ...more

Snow White incorporates most of the things that always admired about Disney. The first is the best in this case and it is hard to place it perhaps behind Beauty and the Beast as animation feature. There is absolutely nothing mismatch in the entire animation. Well done, the changes after are not as bad but serious Beauty and the Beast roasts me well nearly as fine.

It's very difficult to choose my favorite Disney movie. I love almost all Disney animations (with a rare exceptions). However, I chose Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs only for one reason: I love the dwarfs! Especially Dopey. He's so, so, so CUTE... Cutest Disney character EVER...

17 The Hunchback of Notre Dame The Hunchback of Notre Dame Product Image

Easily the best Disney film ever. The story, visuals, voices and the music is Disney at it's finest. People think it is inappropriate for children, no it is not. My parents let me watch it and I was two when it came out and my siblings and I loved it, we didn't even pick up on the dark themes as children and children don't notice or understand those elements at a young age, it is visually and musically entertaining and exciting. We did later on as we got older but it made us love the movie even more. The characters are so relatable and realistic, and the voices are perfect. Frollo is the best Disney villain ever and Esmeralda is the first true Disney feminist, she is smarter than Belle and braver than Mulan she is amazing. Disney needs to breathe life back into this movie and start promoting it again at all the theme parks and stores.

Often forgotten by most people who have watched it, but for me this movie stands out as one of the best. Ranked #3 on my favorite Disney movies (other than the Lion King and Fantasia) and Esmeralda is so beautiful, and kind. The Hunched back is sweet, and brave.

This is easily the most underrated Disney film to exist. While I'm not surprised that The Lion King is at the top of this list, this movie deserves more praise. Yes, it's dark. But it is potentially one of the most visually stunning and meaningful Disney movies ever. To add to that, the soundtrack is beautiful and Esmeralda is 100% the most underrated Disney heroine. She deserves more love. Frollo is probably the most realistic villain. It's too bad that people don't show this movie any love. It's one of my favourites.

Okay, maybe I like The Lion King more but it is already at number 1, it doesn't need help. This is easily my second favorite, and this one needs help. Maybe it does have some major flaws, yeah the gargoyles break the mood but everything else works extremely well. This feels like one of those dark plays based on classic books that are so popular nowadays. Combine that with Disney's best animation ever, and you got one heck of an animated feature.

18 Fantasia Fantasia Product Image

Yeah, the 'Concert Feature' gets my vote. I didn't even have to think about this one. If I had to pick one with a continuous narrative, it's probably 'Beauty and the Beast' or 'Hunchback', maybe 'Pinocchio'... But 'Fantasia' is simply my favorite Disney animated feature by far. Hell, it's my favorite animated movie of all time, and a top ten film of all time personally. A unique, ambitious film that I enjoy just as much on each viewing as the last, and I find something new to appreciate each time. I still smile at the humor and magic of 'Sorcerer's Apprentice', let my perception of survival be changed by the 'Rite of Spring', laugh raucously at the 'Dance of the Hours', and stare in awe at the 'Night on Bald Mountain'. It's an experience, a film like no other. Gets my vote for number one, unequivocally.

Fantasia is a masterpiece. The animation, as well as the score, is outstanding. This is Disney at its finest. You can tell that there is so much work and so much heart that goes into this film, and the final product is beautiful. Out of all of the amazing films Disney, as well as anyone else, has created, Fantasia is the most creative, awe-inspiring, and imaginative I've ever experienced!

#51? The most ridiculous placing I've ever seen on this lovely and phenomenal piece of art! So much passion put into this feature that it's arguably Walt Disney's greatest film he ever made! Though technically The Lion King is the studio's most inspiring, Fantasia should at least be in the Top 5.

Perhaps for some kids it can get a little boring since there's virtually no dialogue or linear story. That doesn't mean I didn't love it as a kid, I'll tell 'ya.

19 Wall-E Wall-E Product Image

This movie is an absolute classic. It forms an emotional relationship between two robots that can't even speak with flair, sends a great and massive message that is still relevant to this day, and has animation that not only holds up, but is actually still incredible watching in 2020. This is a timeless classic that is constructed so well and is something that animation companies in general lack.

This movie is great because it's funny and the characters are cute but the movie deals with a real life problem. Garbage and waste and if we don't do something about it, it will be too late.

An actual Disney/Pixar film that isn't about princesses, superheroes, cheesy kid-human characters and random songs popping out of nowhere. The plot is more understandable than most Pixar films. Look at monsters inc, the plot is where some monsters create energy made of screams... And then, plot twist, the leader of the co-operation is evil. The end. And it's my second best Pixar film, but Wall-E takes the top spot. A robot in a time-scarred Earth is sent to rebuild and clean Earth, and the humans are send aboard a space cruiser to survive, and Wall-E's home is a shipping container full of scrap. But then, a large rocket disturbs the peace. A large white and blue robot comes out named Eve (Wall-E pronounces it ever). They then stow away on the human colony ship, with an evil computer controlling its movements...

Better than any plot in an animated movie.

First off how is this not in the top 10 at minimum? Secondly, if you want this list to be about Disney animation, how can you not have the movie that focuses almost 100% on animation and very little on script to tell its story? By far one of Disney's greatest movies of all time. I believe it should be number five. Number one being Snow White because it’s what started it all. Number two being The Lion King because it’s what started Disney's new era in movies. Three should be Toy Story because of it being the first Disney-Pixar conglomerate and what I believe began Disney's third era in movie making. And then finally, you could argue that either Finding Nemo and Wall-E would be numbers four and five.

20 The Jungle Book The Jungle Book Product Image

I have loved the Jungle Book since I was a little kid. This deffinently should be in the top 10. Knock out some of the computer animated movies. Leave some with origianl type animation. It adds a lot of character to a movie to be hand drawn!

The only thing I don't like is the Hindu portrayed in this movie with the red dot between her eyes. She ugly and Hindu is evil I can't believe they put that in a Disney movie.

My favorite movie ever! I love all the characters. Baloo and shere khan are cool. This is my dad's favorite disney movie. my great uncle leo painted some jungle book drawings on my bedroom wall. His son jonothan helped.

An amazing movie, I love it to bits! Baloo is like my hero. I love the story behind it, it is about friendship, bravery, a boy finding his own identity and FUN! My childhood.

21 Frozen Frozen Product Image

Bad movie? Don't you dare call it bad when you got two singing angels in Anna and Elsa. I love Disney ladies who CAN sing.
Its Joeysworld

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! :$

I usually respect people's opinions, but this movie sucks. Seriously? This is OVERRATED. I don't think there is an age limit for watching animated movies... but Frozen should be censured because it was one of the most boring and childish movie I've ever watched. It sucks, get over it.

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 ...more

Elsa is pretty evil since she tried to kill someone, mainly her sister

While, the Lion King is a good movie it is FAR from being one of Disney's best. There are huge problems with it. Like the main character, who is the most boring and generic thing in the whole movie. When compared to Anna, the protagonist of Frozen, there's just no contest, Anna is much more entertaining. Another problem is the music, most of it sucks. Be prepared is great, and I like circle of life, but everything else is just annoying. Once again compared to Frozen there's just no contest Frozen wins by a landslide, every single song is amazing. One other huge flaw is the botched up message. So Simba learns to face his past, but when he does he starts to lose, and every thing he was taught before is suddenly working against him. Nobody even helps him or gets backs him up much until they find out he didn't kill his father. So I guess the moral is never take responsibility for what you've done, because nobody will help you unless it turns out you really didn't commit the crime. How is ...more

22 Tarzan Tarzan Product Image

Incredible movie,amazing soundtrack,awesome visuals,great plot,very exciting and touching,one moment you are laughing and moment you are crying a rollercoaster of feelings. Also has a very important message and did I mention the amazing soundtrack?

This is by far, the greatest animated movie I have ever experienced in cinemas. The way the music and animation is orchestrated is by far superior to any other movie there has been. I believe it's a massive shame how Disney has taken away the British elements of their movies as this brought a heart to the films and now the not only annoying American voice but one you cannot take to serious has destroyed the franchise. WHAT HAPPEND TO DISNEY?!

I could watch this movie over and over without it ever losing its impact on me, the emotions of this movie are so powerful, especially when guided by phil collins beautiful songs... I cry in only the first few mintes of tarzan, it brings me such a great feeling every time I watch it.
Not to mention, I love how Innocent and sweet tarzan and jane's relationship is, there characters are both so intriguing.
This is a beautiful, heart warming film...

My absolute favourite Disney movie, everyone can relate to it: whether it's family, relationships, commitment, love, growing up it has something for everyone! The storyline is brilliant and it has some of the most loveable characters (my favourite being Terk and Tantor. ) Phil Collins wrote the music for this movie which makes it even better, the lyrics are so beautiful and I can't see any other music that would fit in with Tarzan as well as Phil's does. Fab movie.

23 Inside Out

This movie was a masterpiece. It was so sad! Especially what happens to Bing Bong. The animation in this movie is top notch. I have never seen a movie with such vibrant colors that actually turns out good. The characters are very well-developed. I would of like to see more Disgust but that's alright. I think this movie is actually enjoyable for parents unlike a lot of other Disney movies.

(Warning my comment contains spoilers) I LOVE THIS MOVIE! It made me cry! Anger was by far my favorite character. And it had amazing animations. And her comes the spoiler... I can't believe that Bing Bong Dies! He turns into dust! He sacrifices for Joy! He was so funny and it made me cry when he died! And I turned around in the theater in that Scene and an old lady was balling!

Inside Out is the movie that made me lose faith in Pixar...They had a perfect track record up until this pile of crap came out. I hope Pixar can recover from this with another Cars movie and a sequel to The Incredibles. (Finding Dory wasn't enough)

I so much love this movie with Joy,Sadness,Anger,Fear and disgust in the head of Riley it's amazing the story is funny and we want to know more cause it's cute and the emotions are funny and are working so are when joy and sadness are not in Riley head my favorite characters is Joy and Disgust!

24 Alice in Wonderland Alice in Wonderland Product Image

I ADORE this movie for so many reasons
1. I was named after this movie
2. I love how imaginitive and wacky it is
3. Shows how important it is to dream
4. Watching it feels like the best dream ever
5. I love the Mad Hatter's Happy Unbirthday song
6. Perfect for all ages (including teens like me!)
Let's get this to number 1 people!

I just had to vote for this because it's an absolute classic, and I have a fascination with weird, trippy things. Oddly enough I never did drugs but I get my highs off of watching movies like this. Things in it don't make sense, it's very dream-like and surreal. I love it. Plus the Cheshire Cat is one of my favorite Disney characters of all time. I could watch this over and over and never get bored of it!

It is a world from the imagination of a child's heart. One of the more precious disney movies and always made me think and think. Maybe I will go paint some roses red... :) Alice is also a great main character with smarts, sweet and simply an innocent figure. I love how she wants these peculiar things such as a want for pictures in all her books and not words. I love " Alice in Wonderland"!

I just really enjoy how weird it was. The animation is beautiful. I'm just a sucker for colors. The characters are amazing too, who doesn't love the Cheshire cat. And it's surprisingly humorous if you catch the jokes. This, brother bear, and emperors new groove have got to be the most popular underrated Disney movies ever, and rightfully so.

25 Pinocchio Pinocchio Product Image

I will admit I did not vote for Pinocchio, but I still think this is a great Disney film. It will probably never get the recognition it deserves given the popularity of Disney's later movies, but Pinocchio is in my opinion the best animation seen in a Disney film, especially given the time period it was made. The story, although nonsensical at times with how naive Pinocchio was, really gets the morals of the story right in a frighteningly memorable way that really pushes this film into the discussion as one of Disney's best films. I would put it at least in the top 10, if not the top 5.

I can not believe this is so far down the list! I am 56 and enjoyed this immensely as a girl, but of course children now don't get to see this Disney film as much. They watch the computer generated ones.
It was a little 'dark' with naughty boys being turned into donkeys! But totally agree with the vote below and the drawings are exquisite. Back then they didn't have the technology that we have now and had to painstakingly draw every moment that we see. Agree the clock scene is fantastic and Jiminy Cricket was great sidekick and I liked him as much as Pinocchio!
Mind you I was scared of that Fox and Stromboli (the Puppet man) who put Pinocchio in a cage!
But the film has plenty of more positive moments too.

All you parents please buy this and encourage your kids to watch this great film!

Everyone will learn that lying really doesn't pay laugh out loud

This is the best of the early Disney movies. It's hand-drawn animation is so detailed and beautiful. The opening scenes with all the toys and clocks are just amazing. All the characters are great developed - even the cat Figaro and the fish Cleo. Jiminy Cricket is one of the best side-kicks ever to walk an animated movie. The story is emotional and has some valuable lessons to give. And the songs are great.
It absolutely deserves to be in the top ten!

That's ridiculous how movies like nemo and wall-e came before this. Greatest Disney movie of all time hands down. Wonderful story, characters, etc. Plus it's different, it teaches that good doesn't always prevail over evil. Not many movies let the bad guy get away and in this they did. This aughta move up about 43 spaces
