100 Of The Best Moments From My Favorite Disney Movies

Disney movies are a staple of any childhood. You can’t really grow up without having Disney in your life, in one form or another. They are the types of movies that can make you laugh, cry, and smile in just one hour or more. That is a feat most movies in general can’t really accomplish. No matter how old you get, they still remain a constant in your life and your heart. Some of the most memorable cry-worthy and smile-worthy moments of Disney have already been listed under “Heartwarming” and “TearJerker” on TVtropes. And some are memorable in my mind.
