If you think that the House of Mouse has not produced the same number of Christmas classics as you think, the streaming service is full of festive delights. With Disney+, you’ll find everything from popular seasonal favorites to original originals to animated shorts. Like any other streaming service, however, the sheer quantity of content can mean there are plenty of coal lumps mixed in alongside the sleek new bikes.

We focused on full-length films and came up with the 15 top films that are sure to entertain the whole family after everyone sits on the sofa after a day full of fun and joy.
Best Christmas Movies on Disney+ in order of ranking
1. Alone (1990)
Disney recently launched its own remake of the popular home invasion series, Home Sweet Home Alone; however, this streaming platform is where you can watch the Macaulay Culkin iconic film (and its less-than-great sequels). It’s the most joyful and joyful film ever created!

2. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
In all the gloomy Halloween chaos, Danny Elfman’s first track is arguably the greatest All Hallows music ever composed. The macabre stop-motion fable has its Christmas spirit taken seriously, too. (‘What’s This’ should be given an inclusion on every festive soundtrack). Yes, the unprofessional elves of Halloween Town botch the big day by giving snakes and heads to unsuspecting youngsters, but it’s only the way you think about it that counts, isn’t it?
3. The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
It’s exactly what the title suggests in the timeless Charles Dickens story, as interpreted by Jim Henson’s felt children. While it was released during an incredible downtime for the Muppets, it’s one of the most entertaining renditions of the story. It’s due to the amazing Michael Caine – the lone person of the group as One of the Scroogiest Scrooges in the history of the humbug.
4. The Santa Clause (1994)
It’s like it could be a Cronenbergian body-horror feature. A gentle-mannered grump (Tim Allen) is a nefarious Santa who causes his death and can see himself growing weight and hair as he becomes the new leader of the North Pole against his will. However, The Christmas Clause is a 90s-era kid classic due to its large heart, its inherent humor, and general jollity. Don’t be distracted by the sequels that are made of lumps of coal.
5. Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Tim Burton’s personal tale does not shift into a festive mood until its third and final act, and yet the entire film reads like an eerie Christmas Eve tale set in a fireplace (it’s even told as such). Its themes about acceptance and love are timeless, and the images of Winona Ryder swaying around the ice-covered sculptures as Danny Elfman’s best score grows while Edward throws snowflake after snowflake is just as enthralling as any other film available this holiday season.
6. Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
The most cuddly of Christmas-themed films The original features Edmund Gwenn as Kris Kringle, who has to prove his authenticity as Santa Claus, Not least to a child (Natalie Wood) who has lost the value of Christmas. In addition, the more impressive remake from 1994 with Richard Attenborough in the red suit is now available to stream.
7. A Christmas Carol (2009)
While the film does take some liberties – we’re pretty certain Dickens did not ever write about shrunken Scrooge playing with an icicle, the technical master Robert Zemeckis’ motion capture animated spectacle is able to keep the essence of the original material intact. Jim Carrey capably pulls quadruple responsibility as the world’s most well-known criminal and all three ghosts from Christmas. The film is a stunner that isn’t afraid to show its true colors at the moment it’s the time for The Ghost of Christmas yet to come to carry out the world’s most successful shared straight’ program.
8. “The Preacher’s Wife” (1996)
Denzel Washington plays the Earthbound angel who helps an elderly New York preacher save his congregation. The Penny Marshall-directed film is filled with beautiful music performed by the megastar Whitney Houston, who anchors the story of faith and compassion while demonstrating the vocal skills that have made her an all-time classic.

9. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)
It’s perhaps more famous nowadays for the SNL’s classic ‘ Lazy Sunday’ skit (‘Pass the chronic – what? – the cles from Narnia’), but this Christmas-themed snowy treat that is based on the novel by CS Lewis is, in fact, it’s a world of fairytales. There’s the role of a Father Christmas as well as the White Witch, the latter performed by Tilda Swinton.
10. Lady and the Tramp (1955)
If we’re going to consider “Die” Hard as a Christmas film, then we’re taking into account the timeless love story of two dogs who learn the importance of being selfless and snuggling. Additionally, it opens with a lengthy Christmastime scene and concludes with a new litter of pups beneath the tree. This is to say: Yippie-kay-yay, Bella Notte.
