What are your top 5 Must Watch Disney Movies before Going to WDW?
This is going to be tough to narrow this to 5, but this should also help me with the DVDs I pack for our road trip to WDW in August...
#1- Peter Pan
#3- Mary Poppins
#4- Little Mermaid
#5- Alice in Wonderland
Honorable Mentions- Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, and our Winnie the Pooh sing a long.
*odd that Sleeping Beauty is probably my fave Disney movie, but it doesn't psych me up for a trip to WDW...not one little bit.:shrug:
1) Disneyland Sing a Long
2) Beauty and the Beast
3) Pirates of the Caribbean
5) Depends on where we are staying...ie Polynesian - Lilo and Stitch, Wildnerness Lodge - Brother Bear etc etc
1. Beauty and the Beast
2. The Little Mermaid
3. The Lion King
5. Princess and the Frog (Especially because we're staying at POFQ in August!!)
This might sound a little odd, but as much as I dig our collection of Disney movies (and I do plan on picking out a few for viewing on the way), what I would LOVE to watch on the way out there are the original MMouse and DDuck and Goofy shorts. I haven't really seen any (except for on Youtube and remixes on the Disney Channel) in years and would LOVE to not only watch these myself again, but share them with my children (and also DH, as he NEVER saw these as a kid... tragic, I know ). I'm sure there must be a way to purchase some on dvd, but haven't seen them in stores. Might have to check Amazon.
Speaking of spending money on a dvd (but we NEEDS it I tell you ), I keep finding ways to spend $$$ just getting ready for the trip, much less for the trip itself. I'm thinking I should probably be scared... be very scared. :lookaroun
But if I HAVE to pick out five then I would go with,
3) Snow White
4) Toy Story
5) Bug's Life (but since that will be closed maybe Finding Nemo?)
I'm 100% positive that the above list would change at least 20 times if that was all I could do (and I don't have those original shorts I NEED.... really I do). :animwink:
Our changes every year, based on what we haven't watched in a while. This past year we watched:
1. A Bug's Life
2. Jungle Book
3. Treasure Planet
5. Return to Neverland
When we stayed at Port Orleans we watched Princess & the Frog. When we stayed at the Poly, it was Lilo & Stitch. So it's everchanging.
This is basically my list right here
1. Lion King
2. Beauty and the Beast
3. Snow White
4. Finding Nemo
5. Toy Story
Picking just 5 movies is hard. But we do watch the planning DVD's in order before we go. That is a tradition.
Ahh! For sure! This is my childhood right here, love it!
My 5 to get pumped for a WDW trip would be (in no order)
1. Finding Nemo
2. Snow White
3. Lion King
4. The Little Mermaid
5. Toy Story .... 1, 2, & 3 :lol:
Although my family loves the Disney movies, we'd rather stick in one of our own Park videos to look at. Where we went, what we did, and the scenery is enough to get us 'in the mood' if we weren't already for our trip!
We dont watch Disney movies before we go but we do watch several of the vacation planning DVD's!!! Nearing our 60 day mark and I see a viewing in our weekend plans!!!
My 5 Disney movies would be
1.The Little Mermaid
2. Lion King
3. Beauty and the Beast
5. Finding Nemo
Oh, fine topid as I am in the midst of a Disney pre-trip movie watching marathon. I have a list to make sure I don't miss any "standards". But a top 5 you say? Well, in no particular order:
1. Snow White
3. Peter Pan
5. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
Of course Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and The Lion King will not be left unwatched.
Oh gee thats tough, we usually switch things up based on what we haven't seen in awhile but I would say the top ones are:
1. Beauty and the Beast.
3. Snow White
Again hard, we change them out but those seem to be my staples right now.
These are my 8 year old daughter's picks:
Cinderella, Toy Story, Fantasia, Snow White, Finding Nemo.
Old Disney Cartoons on You Tube for me. Raging from Oswald to the Mickey's in the 50's. Plus the vacation videos and anything on the travel channel.
