(Our kids watch The Grinch, year round. Yes, it’s not Disney, but it’s a Christmas Time movie they can’t get enough of, so we will be sharing our favorites with links to grab them when you need them!
Just pick a movie to watch each night leading up to Christmas and you’ll have the best month-ish long movie marathon as a family.
1. Pluto’s Christmas Tree
You can find this and a few other classics in a bundle package on a dvd/blue ray option
- Celebrate the season withic holiday stories full of humor and heart! In "The Small One," a young boy discovers the true spirit of the season when he gives his beloved donkey to a very special passenger on a very special night. Then laughs light up the house when Pluto discovers Chip 'n' Dale living inside "Pluto's Christmas Tree." And in "Mickey's Christmas Carol," everybody's
2. Good Luck Charlie It’s Christmas
The movie synopsis (“The Duncans are separated after Teddy makes a decision to give up her seat.”) is kind of lack luster, but the reviews for this movie are great. So many families have chimmed in saying how they’ve added this to their Christmas movie traditions and watch it every year.
You can get this movie on Amazon Prime- rent or buy it options.
3. Olafs Frozen Adventure
Last year you could stream this on Disney+, but you never know if that’s going to be the same thing this year or not. it’s also a limited time streaming feature and if you have kids who LOVE anything Frozen, you may need this all year long.
Grab the Blueray option:
- Olaf's Frozen Adventure
And if your kids love anything Frozen, you can grab the book too. It would make a great Christmas present gift idea as well.
4. Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas
We do want to point out that a lot of the reviews of this movie claim how it’s a “dark” movie, saying that they made the Beast a little on the darker, scarier side. Most families recommended this for an older kids Christmas movie, not necessarily for the toddlers and younger kids.
They did get the original actors to voice the characters, which is nice to keep it the same as the original movie. We say this is great for older kids and parents who are looking for a little edgier Christmas movie, but it you’re only looking for warm and fuzzy Christmas movies, swap this one out for something else.
You can get this on Prime Video to buy it or you can grab the DVD below.
- Beauty And The Beast: Enchanted Christmas
5. The Ultimate Christmas Present
You can watch this movie on Prime Video – rental or buy it for forever (and it may be available on Disney+ in time? Keep an eye out)
The synopsis given on Prime Video is “Allie and Sam happen upon a weather-making machine left by Santa Claus.”.
We think it’s a cute movie and great to watch all year long too.
6. Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups
This is a cute kids movie that our family just loves to watch. You don’t even NEED to watch the first one yet, but you can if you want.
- Factory sealed DVD
Grab the first one if you like, it’s The Search For Santa Paws
7. The Santa Clause
This is an allllll time favorite of ours- again, one our kids watch allll year long. It did stream on Disney+ last year, so maybe it will again this year. We will have to wait and see. But you can get it for youselves on Prime Video. You can rent it or buy it there.
Also, you can grab the WHOLE 3 MOVIE collection on Blueray (which is what we did since the kiddos want to watch it all year!)
8. Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas
Well, guess what, this was on Disney+ last year and if it’s not this year, it’s okay because we bought it. You know why- our kids can’t stop watching this even if it’s not Christmas time and they love the next one too!
I can’t lie, we watch it with them even if it’s not Christmastime too. It’s too cute and it’s a little collection of short movies!

11. Babes in Toyland
This is a CLASSIC! This movie originally came out in 1961!
For those who may not have seen this 60 year old classic, here’s the editorial review “Enjoy a happy excursion into the world of Mother Goose in Walt Disney’s first musical production! All roads lead to magical, merry Toyland as Mary Contrary and Tom Piper prepare for their wedding! But villainous Barnaby wants Mary for himself, so he kidnaps Tom, setting off a series of comic chases, searches, and double-crosses! The “March Of The Wooden Soldiers” helps put Barnaby in his place, and ensures a “happily ever after” for Tom and Mary! This joyful musical fantasy is a delightful experience for the whole family!|This was the studio’s first live-action musical fantasy.”
12. Mickey’s Christmas Carol
Take a wild guess- do you think our kids LOVE this movie? You’re probably right, they do. They’re obsessed with Disney if you can’t tell by now and we love how these are all generally feel-good movies. Our kids especially love Mickey Mouse and his gang.

I know they streamed this on Disney+ last year because I remember watching it. I hadn’t seen it before and it was super cute.
