Top 10 Disney Movies *List 1

In light of a recent comment I decided to do another list for you guys! So Savage, this one is for you :)

Top 10 Animated Disney Movies to Watch with your Children

As a kid, I used to love watching Disney Movies, my niece and I used to watch several of them over and over and over. As an adult and a parent, I actually understood the movies a lot better watching them as a grown up. So anyways, I have compiled a list of the best Disney movies to watch with your children. Even though I disagree with Disney about some things (hidden messages in movies etc.- I will save that post for another day), these movies are classics none-the-less! I decided I'm going to do two lists of 10 movies because there is just so many classics that it is hard to choose and heck I'm not that busy today so might as well get my posts worth! No particular order as always, enjoy!

Tear Factor Scale: 1-10; 1 = 'not sad at all', 5 = 'I teared up a bit', 10 = 'I cried like a baby'

This Classic is based on a novel about two people who meet and fall in love. Their dogs, Pongo and Perdita, do the same. Perdita gets knocked up and gives birth to 101 puppies. Cruella De Vil has this sick obsession with the puppy skin/fur and wants to make them into coats.

  1. lol, How did she have 101 puppies? I love your analysis of these movies, might have to go back and watch some again.

  2. interesting post.. these were some of my favorites as a child

  3. O wow this place looks great. :D
    Also Nice List. :P

  4. Concerning your 101 dalmatians assessment, Perdita DID NOT actually give birth to 101 dalmations. She gave birth to 15 and then the rest were ones Cruella had gathered from pounds and other people that came along with the initial 15. The owners of Pongo and Perdita decided to keep them all in the end is all.

    Haha, can't believe I remember that.

  5. Big fan of Aladdin...surprised it's not on here.

  6. The Lion King scared me so much as a kid you have no idea.

    101 Dalmatians is easily my favorite from that list.

  7. Okay, first of all, I love your blog design, second, I LOVE disney movies! Its sad adults dont watch them anymore! lol My favorite would have to be Pocahontas. Following!
