Disney + what to watch: I hope if you are reading this you are geeking out as much as we are over here at DisneyDreamCo about Disney +. The list of new shows, old favorites movies, and fan favorites is almost too long to scroll through.
I am going to run down a list of some favorites and things we are looking forward to in our house. So many choices, what will you watch first?
Let’s start with some favorites in our house that you may have overlooked. For a point of reference, we have two boys in the Drennon household aged 8 and 6 years old.
- Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
This old classic is really mindboggling. Set in England during World War II this movie has everything my kids love: Magic, mystery, army men and cartoons. The special effects in this movie were award-winning at the time and some of them really still impress me today.
- Swiss Family Robinson
I loved this movie as a kid and now my kids love it too. They also love climbing up and down the steps of the Swiss Family treehouse in the Magic Kingdom. So please don’t knock it down just quite yet. This movie may not be politically correct (PETA may have a field day) But we really enjoy the fun and whimsy this movie displays.
- Meet the Robinsons
This super underrated cartoon from 2007. Follows the Robinson family on some fun and zany adventures. This is a heartwarming story with a wonderful lesson about being yourself and finding your people.
- The Sword and in the Stone
This classic tale of good vs. evil. The battles between Merlin and Mad Madam Mim are epic. My kids enjoy this classic cartoon as well as any modern story.
- The Parent Trap ( 1961)
This one is for me. I loved this movie as a kid and I love it now. This tale of separated sisters is better in the original version, in my opinion. I love the mischief and the music and the mayhem.
- The Mandolorian
We are huge Star Wars Fans in our house. My kids were Mandolirians for Halloween. ( Nope, no one knew who they were!) We are hoping this new live-action show is not too dark for them. We will gladly vet this one before showing the kids!
