Ten Movies on an Island: Disney

Yes, Disney is its own genre and an important part of Hollywood History! What would this world be like without their animated movies? Or their feel-good live action films? True, the Disney of today has its problems, but the Disney of Yore still retains it's magic after nearly 100 years.

Here are my top ten Classic Disney films, both animated and live-action:
1. Cinderella (1950)
2. Alice in Wonderland (1951)
3. Sleeping Beauty (1959)
4.  One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961)
5. The Parent Trap (1961) - Hayley Mills, Maureen O'Hara, Brian Keith
6. The Three Lives of Thomasina (1964) - Karen Dotrice, Matthew Garber
7. Mary Poppins (1964) - Julie Andrews & Dick Van Dyke
8. That Darn Cat! (1965) - Hayley Mills, Dean Jones
9. The Jungle Book (1967)
10. Robin Hood (1973)
Honorable Mentions: Peter Pan (1953), The Shaggy Dog (1959), The Absent-Minded Professor (1961), Son of Flubber (1963), The Ugly Dachshund (1966), & Blackbeard's Ghost (1968).

Are you a big Disney fan? What films are most magical to you? Do you know all the words to The Ballad of Davy Crockett? Lol ;) Here's a complete list to refresh your memory. (Btw, anyone have any thoughts on the upcoming Mary Poppins film? If it was anyone other than Emily Blunt I would be totally against it but I think she will make a fantastic Mary Poppins! If only the script is good...)

Tomorrow, my top ten (dramatic pause)
. . .


  1. I'm not a huge fan of Disney or animated movies, but "Cinderella" is definitely one of the loveliest films I've ever seen. I also really enjoyed "Mary Poppins." I'm very curious to see what your top 10 dramas are.

    1. I'm not a giant Disney fan like several of my friends or and I doubt I would have watched some of these if my sister didn't love them so much (she has down syndrome).

  2. I would take Cinderella but also take The Little mermaid, Sleeping beauty (1959), and of course Lady and the Tramp (1955) just adore that one!

    1. I've never been as fond of Lady and the Tramp because of the sad part at the pound. I've only seen The Little Mermaid twice (my mom didn't let us watch it when we were little because she doesn't have enough clothes on) but both times I enjoyed it :)
