21 Cinderella

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".

love you

22 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

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.

This was Disney at it's best! It has one of the greatest stories in any Disney movie and features some of the best music. This should be in the top 5 at least.

This movie is so great, it's sad that's it's so underrated. The music is awesome.

This is a very heart touching action packed amazing movie it is also my favourite movie

23 Alice in Wonderland

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"!

Great movie! Really fantastic! Full of fantasies! I watched this movie a hundred times! It simply rocks! Should be in the top 10 not top 25! - Nanditha946

I love this movie more than I love my dad

24 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

It is really the best movie because it teaches you a lesson to not talk to stranger when you do not know what they are like from the inside and as well it was the best film made and the first Disney film as well I really like snow white as well it has so many features in it and it uses lots of creative things like the dwarfs and many other thing it is a really nice and imaginative film

It's the first Disney film ever made. How could it not be on the list. - 123klongike

This movie was the FIRST animated Disney feature! Therefore, its overall #1! And yes, being the first makes it the best!

I could watch it over and over again!

25 Pinocchio

I was suprised to see this so far down on the list. Seems like there are mostly young people voting in these polls. It's a very dark movie about morals, the underlaying message being do unto others as you want them to do to you. And I loved those clocks... gosh :p

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.

A classic moral tale which could teach young children of the day a worthwhile lesson

26 The Fox and the Hound

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

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

I really, really love this movie! It is very heartwarming, and teaches a beautiful moral! It teaches that even natural enemies can be best friends, and the movie is just so beautiful. On a scale of 1-10, I'd give it 109! It's just that good! It should be #4 behind Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King with Beauty and the Beast at 3, The Little Mermaid at 2, and The Lion King at #1 of course!

27 Toy Story 2

The more I analyze everything good about this film, the more I think that it may just not only be the best pixar and Disney animated film. But the best animated movie made. I know that's a bold statement but this film has great writing, characters, and storytelling. It's pretty much perfect. Not to mention it's the highest rated film on rotten tomatoes.

Place 56 are you kidding me!? This movie was my all-time favourite in my childhood! It deserves a much better rating.

Such as a good movie was laughing every 5 seconds! Love all the toy story movies but I felt this this personally was better than Toy Story 1!

I know that's your opinion but personally Toy Story 2 is my least favourite of the Toy Stories, though it is still awesome! - sryanbruen

Honestly a lot of movies on this second page would be on the first for me - Phillip873

28 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.

Zootopia has everything a great mystery, a great big friendship, and even a surprise villain. It is a very entertaining movie it should be in at least 2nd.

This is probably one of the best Disney films ever. Likable characters, great story, flawless animation and humor that's actually funny. I just hope it grosses more money than Frozen. Frozen is overrated and awful. Zootopia is much better.

This movie has a great story about race relations a corruption, with a great surprise villain, intense action scenes, and a well paced story that has great humor and heart.

29 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

I love deer go Bambi #1 WHOO!

30 Ratatouille

Its one of my favoutite cartoon I am 12 but I still watch it

Incredible movie that is great for adults as well as children. I could listen to Ego's monologue over and over again!

How can this movie be all the way down in 23. It is one of the best Disney movie that I have ever seen. It should be in the top 5 at the very least.

One of my favorites

31 Inside Out

(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!

Bing bong was so funny! Greatest Pixar movie ever! (And second saddest)

Why is this movie so low? THIS MOVIE ROCKS!

The most beautiful and emotional pixar movie ever

32 Pocahontas

This movie has it all: great songs, AMAZING animation, an inspirational message and one of the best female characters ever! Pocahontas teaches peace, co-existence and that girls can be brave, intelligent and make a different. Why is this so low?!?

The only Disney Princess not to get a happy ending. A beautiful message with great songs and wonderful animations. I wish this was higher as it shows little kids you don't always get the man of your dreams and peace is more important than love!

Best message of all the Disney movies! It teaches us that nature is how the world was meant to be! Mother natures intensions are the best intensions and peace and love can solve all problems. Truly insprirational and an absolute classic with breathtaking animations and songs. LOVE

Best Disney movie, tied with The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Both these movies have the best music, characters, and storylines. Everything about Pocahontas is beautiful and amazing.

33 Cars

I know, I know. How could I? Before I begin my rant, please listen. I love Disney and Pixar, and did, in fact, enjoy some more of them just as much. The Lion King, Wall-E, UP, and Finding Nemo were beautiful, and Wreck-It-Ralph was stunning. But I have my reasons, so please just hear me out.

Cars has to be my favourite Pixar movie. But please, before you burn me at the stake, hear me out.

Cars is the first movie I remember seeing in the theatre, so, naturally, it will always hold a special place in my heart, right next to Wonderwall and The Land Before Time. Even as a young, naive child, I appreciated the'shiny race cars' and music. (I do, however, love UP and Finding Nemo and Wall-E. A lot. My parents just didn't think I would love them as much. I grew up with dinosaurs and Cars.) Now, time to tackle my latest years.

In my elementary years, I loved Cars just about as much as I did my first time seeing it. Only this time, I could really appreciate the lesson. At ...more - UselessReptile

I don't understand how this isn't in the top ten! its the BEST MOVIE EVER!

How come this isn't 1st! It is totally the best movie ever! You people don't know what your missing! - Vampirebite801

I would say this is underrated but it got its own land at a Disney land park (California adventure). No this movie is not the best but it's not the worst. I just found it a little underrated. However cars 2 was a piece of garbage - Phillip873

34 The Emperor's New Groove

This is too funny! One of my favourite Disney movie!
Highly Recommended! You have to watch it!

How the hell is this so low?! This isn't just the best Disney movie but one of the best movies, it's just so funny!

This movie is one of the only animated movies that can make me laugh. #1

This movie is so funny seriously should be after Snow White and the seven dwarfs same with sleeping beauty

35 Peter Pan

The animation in PETER PAN is as lively as its energetic hero. The scenes set in Victorian London are beautiful, and the shift in perspective as the children round Big Ben and fly off to Neverland is sublimely vertiginous. Most children see Peter as that wonderful ideal, a child with the power to do whatever he pleases for as long as he pleases.

The story does have moments that are whimsical but also very odd: the nanny is a dog; the crocodile that ate Captain Hook's hand keeps following him for another taste; Peter loses his shadow; the Lost Boys have no parents, and unlike Peter, no special powers, fairy guardian, or unquenchable brio. Some children find this engaging, but a few find it troublesome, or worry about what happened to Peter's parents and whether he will be all right without them. They may also be sad that the story ends with Peter bringing the Darling children home and then going back to Neverland without them.

This movie is a touching movie about a boy who doesn't believe in growing who meets a girl and learns the meaning of it. Wendy who is a girls with many dreams is taken of to never land to learn that there is no growing there and has to decide whether to stay in never land and never grow or go back to her family and continue growing up into a wonderful lady.

Peter Pan is an inspirational film for anyone. The music is beautiful, as is the story and the characters. Disney is all about childhood and Peter Pan shares the message, there will always be a child inside of us. 10/10. A true classic.

This movie perfects fun and adventure. I deserves top 20, at least - Knucklewood

36 Lady and the Tramp

Beautiful, beautiful movie! It has music, emotion (one of the only Disney movies to almost make me cry), humor, and the animation quality is superb! I would recommend this movie to anyone yearning for a love story with a happy ending!

Taking dogs and giving them a special human quality that makes us all feel we are along for the ride. See characters that we can relate to as people we know, maybe even see ourselves. This movie is the REAL magic of Disney.

I so love Lady and the Tramp it is one of my favourite movies and I am 10 years old! I love the lion king as well because it is so moving. I love how this film shows that a posh dog can still like a scruffy dog.

Tramp - "Come on bitch, we've got the place to ourselves".
Love that line.

37 Sleeping Beauty

Best villain ever. Love ALL the fairies. Best animation, and best music -- from the Tchaikovsky ballet.

While not my favourite, I think of this film as a masterpiece when it comes to the animation. It's so detailed and beautiful, every frame should be framed. Besides the animation, there's much to like about Sleeping Beauty: The fairies do great as comic relief, the music is lovely and Maleficent is one of the most iconic villains of all time, Disney or not. The only problem I really have is the characters; Aurora and Philip. Aurora only gets 18 lines in the whole movie and Philip is rather boring, but at least he has a personality (looking at you, Prince Charming) and there's quite a lot of filler. I recommend watching it if you haven't already

When I were first watch this amazing movie I just love it and the prince is so handsome and I like Maleficent and Aurora I love how Maleficent movie does but I love sleeping beauty even it's so old it's like a masterpiece of a curse - BellaBeauty

I just have questions for all people in charge of Aurora - majormanafemale

38 Dumbo

.. The scene where dumbo meets his mother and she sings "baby mine"... Saddest thing I have ever seen in my life!

This movie might be short and simple, plus it tries not to be anything big, but it really works. It has really nice animation, a good Rudolph the red nose reindeer type story, memorable characters, nice songs, and some really tear jerking emotional scenes that work so well. This is the only movie I truly consider perfect, and it's my favorite movie of all time.

Dude when I was 5 that 'baby mine' song was the saddest song in my life. I mean Pokemon heroes was not sad but that song was so sad even sadder than Mighty Jo Young.

Adorable, emotional, gorgeous, and just dow right sweet and fun, Dumbo is a disney classic and my favorite movie

39 101 Dalmatians

One of the best animated movies of all time!

I love this movie so much when Disney released it on home video of 1961 I remember when this film came out in 1991 101 Dalmatians 1961 is the best Disney animated film that walt Disney produced in the past Disney did a good job of doing this movie in technicolor I like one hundred and one Dalmatians it is a wonderful amazing Disney classic

The greatest animated movie of all time! - panikkrazy

Love those cute little puppies. I HATE Cruella De Vil. She's awful

40 Fantasia

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.

I Loved this when I was younger.
Wish I still had it.

I need to watch this someday - Phillip873
