20 Magical And Memorable Old Time Disney Animated Movies
Raphael Zanardo on Youtube.

Whether you are old or young, Disney has captivated the world with their enchanted and magical stories of love, wonder, family, and practically every other topic that makes you all mushy inside. Created in 1923, Disney Studios have been pumping out movies for as long as anyone could remember, and there are over hundreds of movies that they have produced and created.

However, one movie type that Disney is absolutely known for is their animated films. Of course, there are the newer ones that have grown men fawning more than their own daughters, but it is time to bring back the old favorites that no matter how much time passes, they will never get old.

Here is the top twenty oldies but goodies of Disney animated films in no particular order. (Trust me, it was not easy to pick just twenty!)

20. "The Aristocats"

This film follows the crazy and funny adventures of a cat named Duchess and three kittens who are left a fortune. However, it goes wrong when the butler wants it all for himself, and he abandons the cats in the countryside.

"Ladies don't start fights, but they can finish them!" - Marie from "The Aristocats"

19. "Fox & The Hound"

Who can ever forget this story about Copper and Todd the Fox? They were best friends when they were younger, but as they got older grew apart as Copper was trained to be a hunting dog. This is a sad but cute story that explores the complexity of friendship.

When two different dogs from two completely different backgrounds fall in love and share a spaghetti kiss. Can anyone say relationship goals?

And beyond those distant hills, who knows what wonderful experiences? And it's all ours for the taking, Pige. It's all ours." -Tramp From "Lady & The Tramp"

5. "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"

The classic tale of a princess who is the fairest of them all and lives with seven dwarfs. Let us not forget the poisonous apple involved.

"Oh! What a cute little chair. Why, there's seven little chairs, must be seven little children. And from the look of this table, seven untidy little children." - Snow White From "Snow White"

4. "Cinderella"

This film has it all: evil step-sisters, pumpkin carriages, mice that turn into horses, a prince, and you can't forget the glass slippers, as well as the significance of midnight.

3. "Aladdin"

The adventure of a street rat who finds a genie from a lamp who grants him three wishes.

"Thank you for choosing "Magic Carpet" for all your travel needs. Don't stand till the rug has come to a complete stop. Thank you. Goodbye, now. Goodbye. Goodbye, thank you. Goodbye." - The Genie From Aladdin.

2. "Beauty & The Beast"

Love knows no bounds in this Disney Classic.

“She warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.” – Narrator from "Beauty & The Beast"

1. "Sleeping Beauty"

Spolier alert: she must be awakened with a kiss from her true love.

"Maleficent doesn't know anything about love, or kindness, or the joy of helping others. You know, sometimes I don't think she's really very happy." - Fauna From "Sleeping Beauty."

Although there are many more movies that I would love to include on this list, I felt these movies were a great representation of all the old-time Disney classics we all know and love. Maybe If you haven't seen some of these, I inspired your new Netflix binge list!

Have a magical and Disney filled day!
