    For those curious, I've complied a list of 50 Disney and Pixar animated features ranked by Box Office gross adjusted into 2016 dollars (based on the rise in average ticket pice). These numbers are domestic only, excluding re-issues and do not show attendence, but it's interesting to look at none the less. Moana is still in release, but it's not likely to change its position on the chart.

    Also, if you're wondering where it would fit on this list, Who Framed Rogger Rabbit? would rank in between Up and Cars.

    That can partially be explained with 3D tickets. More people probably saw Little Mermaid in 1989 than Chicken Little in 2005.

    Here's a list of Disney theatrical re-issues from the 1980s to the early 1990s, again adjusted into 2016 figures. Note the placement of some of the titles and how much Snow White benefited from it's 50th Anniversary campagin in 1987. I don't have numbers for Robin Hood, Alice in Wonderland or Dumbo, unfortunately.
