    Exclamation Disney Movies

    What movies should I rent to prepare my family for the Disney Trip? Swiss Family Robinson (if I'm lucky to find it...) and what other movies? Any suggestions? I've never seen Swiss Family Robinson (where can I get a summary of it so if we can't find it at least we'll konw what it's about...) what other movies?

    Song of the South (IF you can find it), The Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Dumbo, etc. There are tons of movies that have attractions, meet and greets, or other thing that throw reference to the movie.
    See YOU at Disney World,

    I'd go for some "clasics" that will involve rides you can see while there-Snow White (for the Snow White ride), Cinderella (the castle!) and of course Toy Story 1 and 2 for the Buzz Lightyear ride.

    There are many more but I was thinking of older ones that maybe your family had not seen in a while.
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    I agree that watching any Disney movies will be good. (Though I highly recomend Aladdin and the sequels (and the tv series, for that matter ) - I know everyone is shocked )

    All the people will look up and shout: "Save us!" and I'll whisper...'no'.

    Who watches the watchmen?

    I would say don't show them Pirates of the Caribbean of The Haunted Mansion if this is their first visit. They should know that for once there are movies based on rides, and after they ride they can expierence the movies and see the similarities. If it's not their first visit, I say show 'em!

    I agree about rentingthe classics. So many people (adults and children alike) have never seen Snow White, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, and so many of Mickey's early films. It gives a better appreciation of the attractions, songs and even architecture.

    Don't forget The Little Mermaid. If your children are quite young they may have never seen it! I forget sometimes how long that movie has been around until I start reminiscing about how my daughter climbed screaming into my lap at the theater when Ursula was on the screen. She was 2 then. She is almost 19 now.
