Psst: Did you know there are still Disney movies on Netflix? Despite the launch of Disney+, viewers can still stream some of Mickey's best flicks, TV shows and documentaries elsewhere. 

If you find yourself needing an extra dose of Disney magic, try your hand at a fun Disney quiz or two, sketch your favorite characters thanks to these free drawing classes and, to keep little tummies full, try a Disney recipe at home (we suggest the churros).

2. Miracle (2004)

When college hockey coach Herb Brooks is given an assignment in the big leagues—to coach the men's team in the Olympics—the odds are against him, especially considering the U.S.A. is to face the Soviet team. A must for all athletes, this patriotic film will give you a glimpse at Americans uniting. Rated PG. 


Tiana has big dreams down in the bayou: The New Orleans chick wants to be a restauranteur, but her ambitions are derailed when Prince Naveen shows up. (Or should we say hops up?) The prince is turned into a frog, and he is under the impression that a kiss from Tiana (who his mistakes for a princess) will break the curse. Well, unfortunately after one smooch, they're both frogs. Will someone be able to get these two out of this mess? Rated PG. 

Chicken Little has it rough. He's like the boy who cried wolf, except he claims that the sky is falling. Naturally, his neighbors aren't terribly thrilled with this accusation and therefore decide to part ways with the bird. He tries to win their approval by joining a town baseball game, but then discovers that the falling sky is actually a UFO. Will he be able to convince an already suspicious town that aliens are coming? Rated PG.

1. Pinocchio (1940)

Our band of film critics named Pinocchio the best animated film of all time, but you don’t need to be a historian to see why the tale of the little wooden boy seeking to become real is the high water mark for Disney. From the puppet’s ever-growing nose to the climax within a whale, the Blue Fairy to Jiminy Cricket singing ‘when you wish upon a star,’ nearly every minute is iconic and awe-inspiring. Rated G.
