Christmas Movies on Disney+

First up, the movies that make the season special. There are some underrated gems in the collection on Disney+ including I’ll Be Home for Christmas starring teen heartthrobs Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Jessica Biel. Then there is Noelle the Disney+ original movie starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader, which doesn’t quite live up to the names on the billing but is still a delightful film to enjoy on a cold night.

From the Muppets to Kevin McCallister to 34th Street to rival Christmas singing groups, there are dozens of movies available on Disney+ this season. Here are the best of the best to curate the perfect list of films to watch all month long or stream during gatherings with your friends and family.

Some things you might want to know before checking out:

  • Snowglobe stars Christina Milian who is transported to a town called Snow Globe where her choices are making a negative impact on the town, until she changes her ways!
  • The Ultimate Christmas Present is about a magic weather machine that falls into the wrong hands of two 13-year olds in Los Angeles. What could possibly go wrong?
  • The two Mickey specials are genuinely charming. I speak from experience as a person who was forced to watch them on repeat with many young children.
  • The Mistle-Tones is about the Snow Belles versus the Mistle-Tones at a Christmas Eve sing-off. Need I say more?
  • Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas is a straight to VHS classic told by Mrs. Potts (Angela Lansbury returns!) and starring the voice cast of Jerry Orbach, Bernadette Peters Haley Joel Osment and Tim Curry.

Christmas TV on Disney+

Darkwing Duck christmas episode

Before binge-watching ruined the anticipation around holiday themed episodes (nothing like watching a Christmas episode of Netflix’s GLOW in the heat of July), series would sometimes deliver one or two episodes with a holiday flare.

Darkwing Duck season 1, episode 41, “It’s a Wonderful Leaf”
Lizzie Maguire season 2, episode 20, “Xtreme Xmas”
That’s So Raven season 1, episode 19, “Escape Clause”
Boy Meets World season 1, episode 10, “Santa’s Little Helper”
Boy Meets World season 4, episode 11, “Easy Street”
Boy Meets World season 5, episode 11, “A Very Topanga Christmas”
Boy Meets World season 6, episode 11, “Santa’s Little Helpers”
Kim Possible season 2, episode 15, “A Very Possible Christmas”
The Suite Life of Zach and Cody season 1, episode 21, “Christmas at the Tipton”
Hannah Montana season 3, episode 5, “Killing Me Softly With His Height”
Hannah Montana season 4, episode 5, “It’s the End of Jake as We Know It”
Even Stevens season 1, episode 15, “Heck of a Hanukkah”
The Muppets season 1, episode 10, “Single All the Way”

Some things you might want to know before checking out:

  • The Even Stevens episode tells the story of Louis ruining all the Hanukkah gifts.
  • I thought there were more Disney Channel Original Series episodes, but alas, here we are! Boy Meets World takes the cake for the most.
  • The Darkwing Duck episode was on a VHS with a special called “Have Yourself a Goofy Little Christmas” and it was fantastic.
  • The Muppets should have run for eight seasons, but at least there was a holiday episode!

Disney Parks Content

Celebrations at Disney are great if you are into that sort of thing. While I’m all for getting a button as I walk through the gates, I relish watching other people go ALL OUT to celebrate their wedding at the Happiest Place on Earth. Additionally, I have watched the Halloween to Christmas timelapse decorating video on YouTube so many times I’ve lost count. Did you know there is a SPECIAL on Disney+ narrated by Whoopi Goldberg?

Disney Fairytale Weddings: Holiday Magic
Decorating Disney: Holiday Magic

If content that blurs the line between holiday and vaguely connected to the holiday season or contains one scene of snow, you can always check out Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas. Or, if you’re like me and have been watching holiday movies on Hallmark Channel since October 25, there is still plenty of new content headed there throughout the month of December.

All of these titles are available now with a Disney+ subscription.
