Let’s celebrate Christmas in July! Rather than force upon you our favorite fruitcake recipes, the WDW Radio Blog Team would like to share something that can be enjoyed by all ages and at any time of the year. So gather the family and make a bowl of popcorn because we’re sharing our favorite Walt Disney Pictures holiday films.
I always enjoy the concept behind The Santa Clause — and Bernard, the head elf, is awesome. I also need to give a shout-out to Mickey’s Christmas Carol because of Mickey and Dickens.
Mickey’s Christmas Carol. A tradition that began in the days of Michael Eisner’s A Disney Special introductions, this Mickey-fied adaptation continues to be a staple at our house. (Also, a special shout-out to Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too, which always paired with Mickey’s Christmas Carol for TV airings.)
The Santa Clause, Mickey’s Christmas Carol, and The Muppet Christmas Carol are all must watch films during December. Also, Prep & Landing is underrated (in my opinion).
The Santa Clause and The Santa Clause 2 because they’re funny — and I like Tim Allen!
Mickey’s Christmas Carol has been an annual family tradition since I was born. My siblings and I have never known a Christmas without this animated classic. Honorable mention also goes out to Toy Story That Time Forgot.
The Santa Clause and The Santa Clause 2 never get old, and I like the fact that the same actors are in all of them for continuity. I also like Mickey’s Christmas Carol, because it’s Mickey!
We love to watch Prep & Landing and Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas. We only watch these movies during December and will decorate/wrap presents while watching. It’s a tradition my husband and I look forward to.
We love Prep & Landing and The Santa Clause movies. I agree with Erin — we watch during December and wrap presents while watching!
My favorite always will be Babes in Toyland, which is a Christmas musical based on the operetta by Victor Herbert. Do you remember the marching toy soldiers in the Walt Disney World Christmas parade? They made their film debut in Babes in Toyland.
What’s your favorite Walt Disney Pictures holiday favorite?
