So grab the popcorn and get snuggled up on the couch because it’s Disney+ time!
As many of you know, Disney blessed us with a little Disney magic and released Frozen II early. So, of course, this is the first flick on our list!
Now is the PERFECT time to watch films like Ratatouille and Mulan.
Disney World’s new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure attraction is set to open in Epcot THIS SUMMER. So why not brush up on all your Ratatouille knowledge now?
It’s also a great time to watch the classic film Mulan! Disney is releasing a new live-action version of the film sometime soon. While it was set to be released on March 27th, it sadly has been postponed due to Coronavirus concerns. We will keep you posted on information as to when Disney plans to release the new film as soon as we know!
It may not be Christmas, but Noelle never fails to make us smile and laugh.
And even as grown adults, we are total fans of films like Descendents annnd Zombies.
Iconic Marathon Series
Looking for a few iconic series to binge-watch?
Now is a GREAT time to introduce your kiddos to all of the Star Wars films. And what better way to do that than with a Star Wars-thon?! Then, your entire family will be able to point out every little detail on Rise of the Resistance when your family visits Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge next!
Did you know that Disney owns The Simpsons?! Well, they do. And every episode is available on Disney+!!
If you’re looking for something a little more action-packed, grab the popcorn, and your kiddos fave superhero costumes and have Marvel movie marathon!
Another great one that might be fun is to have a National Treasure marathon. Did you know that National Treasure 3 is supposedly in the works?! I’m pretty pumped for it honestly!
You could also have a Toy Story marathon. Annnd if you feel like singing a few tunes, then a High School Musical marathon is a MUST!!
A Few to Get You Ready For When the Parks Re-Open
Disney World WILL re-open and now is the perfect time to be planning for your future vacays. A great way to do this is to watch all the Mickey Shorts so you’re ready to hang out at the Mickey Shorts Theatre or to hop on the NEW Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction in Hollywood Studios.
Watching Avengers films will get help get you prepared to join heroes and villains alike at the new Avengers Campus land opening on June 18th in Disney California Adventure.
And if you’re looking forward to the future of the Disney parks, then what better time to watch films like TRON and Guardians of the Galaxy. Disney is creating attractions based on both!
And as mentioned above, Ratatouille is another great one to watch to prepare for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.
Looking for something a bit more educational? There are a BUNCH of National Geographic documentaries available on Disney+ as well.
Are you hoping to learn about the history of the Disney Parks or Disney animation? Then we have a few shows for ya!
We’re re-watching The Imagineering Story. It not only helps us feel like we’re at the parks since they are closed for the time being, but we also learn something new about the ideas and the hard work that it took to create our favorite attractions every time we watch.
Waking Sleeping Beauty is a FASCINATING documentary about a dark time in Disney animation and the events leading up to the Disney Renaissance. The footage of the animators gives me chills and it’s so cool to see how the company created some of our most beloved films.
We also love to watch the classic Disney shorts. We love seeing how far the company has come and what’s better than hearing Walt voice Mickey?
