Our Favorite Christmas Movies on Disney+

These classics are perfect for your next family movie night! Make a cup of cocoa, grab a blanket, and press 'play' for the ultimate family movie night.

'A Christmas Carol'

This animated Disney movie is based on a classic story by Charles Dickens. When holiday grump Ebenezer Scrooge (voiced by Jim Carrey) is visited by the ghost of his deceased business partner, he is warned that three spirits will come to him that night. As the spirits take him through scenes from his past, present, and future, Scrooge must confront the consequences of his actions and consider making a change before it’s too late.

'Home Alone'

It wouldn’t be Christmas without Home Alone playing on repeat. After his family mistakenly leaves him behind on a trip to Paris, 8-year-old Kevin McCallister has the whole house to himself. However, when he discovers that two men plan to rob the home, it’s up to Kevin to keep the house and all their belongings safe. 

'I'll Be Home for Christmas'

College student Jake is convinced to travel home for Christmas dinner when his estranged father promises to gift him with a classic Porsche. But when Jake’s rival takes his I.D. and money—leaving him stranded in the California desert—he must find a way to make it from sunny Los Angeles home to New York.


This new original movie from Disney+ stars Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader, and follows the story of Kris Kringle’s two children as they try to fill their father’s shoes. Though Nick is expected to take over the family business upon his father's retirement, he begins to crack under the pressure. When he skips town, it’s up to Noelle to find him and save Christmas.

'The Nightmare Before Christmas'

This film by Tim Burton is the perfect fusion of Halloween and Christmas. When Halloweentown’s pumpkin king Jack Skellington becomes bored with frightening people in the real world, he discovers a portal to Christmastown. Delighted by the town and the holiday he's never celebrated before, Jack decides to take over Christmas and wreak havoc on the rest of the world.

'The Santa Clause'

In this comical Christmas movie, a divorced father accidentally causes Santa Claus to fall from his rooftop and he must take over as the new Santa. While he initially thinks the experience was a dream, over the next several months, he grows a white beard and gains a plump belly. Not only does he have to learn the ropes of becoming Kris Kringle, but he also must fight for custody of his young son.
