Top 10 Best Disney Movies

The Top Ten

1 The 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

Pixar is now a subsidiary of Disney so they own the copyrights to them. - orangemo8

Disney keeps saying it became worse and worse every time! LOOK! It's THE TOP ON THE LIST! It's THE BEST!

2 Aladdin

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

This should be first place

3 Beauty 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.

Gaston's not scary he's a pedophilic creep character, no offenses towards the actor. - Anonymousxcxc

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

This was always my favourite. - HaydenFullwright

4 Tangled

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.

5 Toy Story

This Movie is The Best my Brother got Me Hooked Now I Watch it Every Day I Can this Movie is So Awesome my Favorite Characters are Woody Buzz Lightyear Rex Mr Potato Head and Hamm I'm in Love with This Movie

This movie is not any good. The second and third movies of Toy Story are way much better than this one. This first film of Toy Story always make me lost and that is why I refuse to watch this first film. THIS FILM SUCKS!

I take back my vote for frozen. Although I love frozen I love love LOVE toy story. This is the best Disney movie ever. I really love the friendship that grows between buzz and woody. Plus the end was just flat out funny. The characters were all really funny.

This and Mulan is my all time favorite Disney movie. It is about beautiful friendship and the humour is hands down the best in the whole Disney universe. It is also a big part of my childhood and made me cry after the last movie which none of all Disney movies ever did.

6 The Fox and the Hound

This movie is the most wonderful thing I've ever seen. It's beautiful, charming, has a great moral, and is absolutely heartwarming! It features great role models, heck even Amos Slade (the closest this movie has to a villain) still has a heart that's touched by his two dogs, and he finally lets Tod live in the end, proving he's not completely heartless. The rest of the movie is even better. When it's not focused being utterly heartwarming, it's something hilarious. I'll give you an example. There's a subplot that involves the two birds Dinky and Boomer trying to catch a caterpillar and they fail in typical cartoon fashion. It goes back to heartwarming though when the caterpillar turns into a butterfly and it goes with the theme of the movie that you should respect nature. This movie is so good it even rivals Pixar's best movies like Toy Story and Finding Nemo!

Aladdin has great songs, and a nice story. But The Fox and the Hound? This is the most heartwarming, adorable, wonderful, beautiful, moving movie I have ever laid my eyes on. It's all about friendship despite differences, and it shows a friendship stronger and more powerful than death! Remember when Tod and Copper first meet? They play together all day, and become fast friends. Then Tod says that they'll be friends forever! It's such a touching scene! And then they play it again (as a voiceover) at the very end. Also if you listen closely, the final 30 seconds features a wistful, triumphant instrumental reprise of Goodbye May Seem Forever. Goodbye may seem forever, farewell is like the end, but in my heart's a memory, and there you'll always be. I cry every time I hear that! (both at the end and during the scene where it's first sung.) Bottom line this should be before Aladdin at #2, because only The Lion King can beat this.

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.

This movie is just plain wonderful! The plot is very sad, but in the most bittersweet and just plain beautiful way possible. I MEAN IT. Even at the saddest parts, it still never fails to move you. In fact, the very SADDEST scene of them all, is the most bittersweet and heartwarming part. Here it is:

Goodbye may seem forever
Farewell is like the end
But in my heart's a memory
And there you'll always be

HOW CAN YOU NOT BE TOUCHED BY THAT? It's the saddest scene, and DEFINITELY the most bittersweet, but she's saying that she will ALWAYS love him no matter what, even after she had to let him go. And on the other list of Saddest Disney Movies, this movie is #2 after Up, when it's arguably even sadder than Up. But it's also the most bittersweet Disney movie ever, because of that scene. Even if you listen closely in the last 30 seconds, you can hear it again if you listen closely enough. This time it's a wistful, triumphant instrumental reprise, and it goes EXACTLY ...more

7 Finding Nemo

Hands down. Finding Nemo and Lion King are just the best! Both were never done before and it was something completely new and fresh and I love it! Here's why:
Finding Nemo was unique because of the characters. I thought dory was brilliant! A character THAT likable, just wow mate. Even with her flaws, like her memory, were great and we're all part of her brilliant personality! Marlin. Oh man he was done great too. He I think is the character that the parents like and relate to. He had some great jokes in there and I saw all the parents laughing. And don't forget Nemo! I think all the kids liked this guy, or at least I did. His headstrong personality was matted over by his even sweeter traits making him very likable. And don't forget one of the most brilliant characters Disney has come up with... CRUSH! Yes, he only had a small part, but if define you was one of the best parts. I don't know if it's just me because I'm a typical Cali surfer, but this guy was great! Disney turned him ...more

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

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.

Dude. mr turtle is my father

8 Big Hero 6

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.

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!

Funniest Disney movie ever.

9 The Little Mermaid

This was my favourite film when I was little and I got bored and found the DVD the other day. Not gonna lie, I enjoyed it

I love the little mermaid it is a fun adventurous exiting movie for the whole family
To watch. It's funny and I love the characters.

GO LITTLE MERMAID!

I love this movie and the music great movie watch it so much god, I love this movie so cute!

This movie is really touching and emotional. It shows how sometimes you don't want what you have, and how there are better things out there. People say Ariel was ungrateful for what she had but it's not her fault she wants more out of life. And they say that she and Eric didn't have chemistry but they did after they bounded. And come on, how can you not love her song? (Part of Your World) It's such a beautiful song and it's so inspiring. Easily the best "I Want" song ever (along with If Only from Descendants).

10 Up

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

Most recent comment "This movies sucks." I don't care if you hate such an amazing movie but learn some English. The Lion King, Aladdin, Toy Story, and now Up all have hater trolls. Could they all be the same person? The Disney hater troll? - 445956

The Contenders

11 Mulan

The most progressive Disney film of all time. A sharp change from the previous standard, Mulan was the first Disney Princess who didn't need to wait on an man to lead her to happiness. It's classic song, "Reflection," encourages young viewers to look deep within oneself to find who they truly are, while the self-empowering, ironically titled, "Make a Man Out of You" teaches young girls that women have the power to achieve anything a man can, and even lead others to victory. This is definitely a top 10 Disney film.

Mulan is great movie (though I prefer Aladdin) top ten at least! I love frozen, but 2!?!? No way! Look at the best disney animated films list, the places are better in my opinion. - baconyum

This gets my vote for sure! Let's be honest here, the lesson/moral of this movie is absolutely amazing. There are actually a ton of life lessons that are important in this lovely movie. Such as stand up for what YOU believe in, be yourself, everything has its own time to happen/act, etc. PLUS, some parts of it actually happened for real. The main character is also a great role model. The plot is excellent and so is the animation. This NEEDS to be in the top 5 or even higher than that!

MYSTERIOUS AS THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON!

12 Wreck-It Ralph

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

Absolutely my favorite Disney movie. Great plot, great message (we should always be happy with who we are and never change ourselves), great characters and cameos (I love the Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario, and Pac Man references! ), and great humor. Instant classic and a great addition to Disney. Frozen, Toy Story, Big Hero 6, and The Incredibles were all great, but this one is my all time favorite.

This my favorite Disney movie ever. This was the time before Frozen came out. This movie had a important message. It was very creative in its own ways too. Everything was just perfect, and it had amazing animation too. Unlike the other movies, this really showed meaning to it. It doesn't matter if you are the "bad guy" or the "good guy," everyone can always share friendships together.

Probably the greatest underrated Disney film, in my opinion.

13 The Aristocats

Cause everybody wants to be a cat.

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.

AMAZING this film is funny, charming and very agreeable. It has fantastic songs and characters as soon as I set my eyes on the first scene I knew this was (in my opinion) the best film ever!

Underrated - PeeledBanana

14 Toy Story 3

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

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

Heck yeah, my favorite movie to date.

You are joking, aren't you? This is the best movie of Disney ever! This must be at the top! - Victoryboy

15 Frozen

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).

I can get why a lot of people like this movie, but it isn't as good as the real classics. A lot of people would rather be Elsa than Anna, but most of those people just want her fancy dress and ice powers over happiness and optimism. I feel like this movie is telling me that you have to be born special to have the adventure of a life time or know someone special, a lot of things discourage me this way but I guess I don't like this movie as much as others because of how much it discourages me. This movie is pretty cool, but it makes me sad because I'm just 12 and my mom is going to make me become a doctor when I grow up but I want to do something else with all of my heart, becoming an author and finally seeing my old friends that I haven't seen or talked to for a whole year. I just wish that there would be more movies that teach us that we should be who we are and and we don't have to be beautiful or born into something special.

Like the Movie not for Elsa, but the art style, and the environment. The character models looks a lot like in Tangled, just different shapes. The plot is alright, Disney could've came up With a far far better plot, than the plot that already is. But this made it to the top in global popularity, not because of Elsa, or the ice Powers. It's mostly because of the song Let It Go. It's not too bad of a song, in my opinion, having in mind, that it has been rated the best, non-Pixar song or whatever that Disney has ever made. But thinking of all the 'mistakes' that I could spy With my eye, it is in a way one of the laziest Movies Disney has ever made. They could really get their heads up a little more when they made this Movie. If they did, I think this would might be, the best animated Movie in existence. But honestly I like this Movie a lot. It's not like I want to watch it over and over, it's more like something With the characters in the Movie, that caught my eye. I can't really explain ...more

Ilike this very much mabuhay

16 Monsters, Inc.

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

Monsters inc should be higher. It's awesome!

This movie has been my favourite since I was 3 years old and now I'm 13 years old

Just a great film that brings out the best in all people :))) LOL

17 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

You watch it every day? Dang, I love the movie but I guess you're a bigger fan.

Great movie. Really captured the kid friendly super hero movie but also made it enjoyable for adults. The characters are interesting, and the story is new and compelling. 9/10

You know what, I really love the graphics and the super power effects that they put into this movie to make it stand out from the rest! I mean if I ever had to rate this movie, I would give it a 10, times 10, times 10...You get my point right!?

This is probably the best Pixar movie if not the best Disney movie

18 Pinocchio

This definitely one of Disney's best I mean look at the plot a man builds a wooden puppet and comes to life and if I remember correctly I think he wanted to be a real boy and he does in the end and yeah I think this is classic and its definitely one checking out wait a minute I think everyone has seen but for those who has not check out.

Its quite good, but I still can't watch this without that giant fox scaring the living daylights out of me.

Disney, you made an awesome second movie Bro. I am very happy to watch it when given the time. This Amazing Disney Timeless Second Classic should be much higher then 17.

The best Disney was when Walt Disney was in charge! This list was voted on by children based only on what they had seen growing up - nostalgia only. The real artistry was with WALT!

19 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

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

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).

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.

This movie is dark, but also sweet and emotional. It's also very well done and even comes from the famous novel of the same name.

20 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

This is a great movie. It is the very first one which makes it a timeless classic and sure Snow White was waiting around for Prince Charming to come and rescue her but she still put up with her step mother who hated her, tried to find the best in everyone and was kind and sweet and caring. This film also has one of the best scenes which is when she is running through the forest and the trees come to life. This used to scare the crap out of me when I was younger and I couldn't watch it but I watched it about a year or two ago and I was able to really see how detailed and amazing they made this scene. The dwarfs are also extremely funny, cute and loving characters. I love how this movie really shows a bond between a family because that is what Snow White and the dwarfs are. This film doesn't just focus on the prince and the Snow White, it has more focus on Snow Whites new bond and friendship with the dwarfs and how friends can come in all shapes and sizes - dizzyditz14

When I was around six I wanted this movie I got it for Christmas a couple days later I watched I was scared to death now I am eleven and I was bored it was rainy then I came upon this movie and I was like what the heck I put in in my movie player and was like wow this movie is amazing that is how I came to love this movie now it is my favorite Disney movie please vote for it to be in at least the top 15

I like snow white and seven dwarfs very much

It’s The first. And The animation is breath taking, so Real art.
Love to all fans Birger Simonsen, CPH.
