Disney | 5 Favourite Films


Today I’m sharing 5 of my favourite Disney films. One of the things I’m really excited for when Aoife grows older is to show her some of my favourite Disney films and have a Disney film afternoon or weekend. There has always been 5 films that I have loved above all other Disney films. 
A list of my 5 favourite disney films

| Basil the Great Mouse Detective
A list of my 5 favourite disney films
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this film growing up. I love it to pieces. It’s one film that I can also quote word for word. Rattigan is also one of my favourite Disney villains because he’s so classy and sophisticated; although he is incredibly scary at the end of the film. I feel like this film is so underrated because I never hear it mentioned in anyone’s favourite Disney films. 

| Mulan

The soundtrack to Mulan is wonderful. The moment the music starts playing you can’t help but belt out ‘Let’s get down to business, to defeat the Huuunnns.’ What makes me love this film is Mulan’s character and the undying love she has for her father that she would dishonour her family to save him from going into the Chinese army. Lastly, you can’t mention Mulan without mentioning Mushu. I think he’s one of the most funny and memorable characters in any Disney film. 

| Oliver and Company

This is another film that I grew up watching with my sisters. When we used to choose a video (…video!!?!?!)  to put on before bed most times we would choose this one. The beginning is so upsetting when poor little Oliver is the only kitten who wasn’t homed. Dodger is such a cool character too. It’s cute how he takes Oliver under his wing. The film shows that it doesn’t matter how small you are, you can still be filled with a lot of love and courage. 

| The Aristocats
A list of my 5 favourite disney films
The Aristocats is an oldie, but it’s such a goodie. I’d love to own so much Marie merchandise. How smooth is Thomas O’Malley too?  It’s kind of a no-brainer that I love this film being a cat lover. I can feel how much it affects Madame Adelaide when she discovers her beloved cats are gone. I’ve felt it a few times in my life where my cats have gone missing and the despair you feel is immeasurable. One of my favourite songs from any Disney film is also Everybody wants to be a cat. 

| The Emperor’s New Groove
A list of my 5 favourite disney films
Another film I can quote all the way through. This film is definitely my type of humour. I love Yzma and Kronk go to Pacha’s home; so funny! How can you not love Kronk and his spinach puffs either? The message of this film is so poignant; the importance of being unselfish and also the importance of friendship and kindness. I’m also very much like Pacha because I believe that everyone has some good in them.  

Of course, there are so many other Disney films that I really enjoy; Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Frozen, Hercules to name a few, but these 5 will always be my favourites, not just because of the films themselves, but because of the memories that also come with them. 

What are some of your favourite Disney films?  Are there any Disney films you think are underrated or overrated?

  1. Old Disney films are the best! I never seen Basil the Great Mouse Detective before, at least I don't think I have? Possibly when I was little? But I've seen the rest and love them all! My favorite is The Aristocats! But I also Aladdin, Pocahontas, Big Hero Six and Tangeled. <3
