One thing that I love about the Christmas season is that it gives me a reason to watch some of my favorite movies! Home Alone, Elf, and The Santa Clause were staples in my home while growing up. What are your favorite holiday movies?
Regardless of whether or not you have a Disney+ subscription, this list of Disney Christmas movies can help you enjoy spending time with your kids or family through classic holiday entertainment.
Does your family have any traditions related to holiday movies? Every year on Christmas Eve my family goes ice skating, gets dinner at a fun restaurant, and then comes home to watch “The Muppet Christmas Carol”. That movie and many other live action Christmas movies can be found on Disney+!
- The Muppet Christmas Carol
- The Santa Clause
- The Santa Clause 2
- The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause
- Babes in Toyland
- Home Alone
- Home Alone 2: Lost In New York
- Miracle on 34th Street
- While You Were Sleeping
- Good Luck Charlie, It’s Christmas!
- The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special
Want to feel like a kid again? Watch an animated movie! Something about the different animation designs and colors takes me back to when I was younger and almost makes me feel more creative. It seems like there aren’t quite as many animated Christmas movies on Disney+, but there are good ones nonetheless.
- The Polar Express
- A Christmas Carol
- Frozen 2
- Olaf’s Frozen Adventure
- Prep & Landing
- Mickey’s Christmas Carol
- Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas
- Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas
- The Lego Star Wars Holiday Special
- The Small One
All honesty, I haven’t seen all of these myself. Some I’ve heard about through other people and others are recommendations from the internet. My thought is that if you’re looking to branch out from the same 3 movies you watch every Christmas, maybe try one of these!
- Home Alone 3
- Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House
- Home Alone: The Holiday Heist
- Home Sweet Home Alone
- Ernest Saves Christmas
- A Very Merry Pooh Year
- Ice Princess
- Santa Buddies
- The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
- Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas
