The Fox and The Hound 4 of 11
The Fox and the Hound is on my top 10 list of favorite Disney movies. Ever. What I really love about this film is the message of friendship. As the mom of a special needs kid - inclusion and acceptance is important. I think this movie really embraces that. It's a valuable lesson for kids to learn. And a great reminder for adults.
Oliver and Company 5 of 11
As a native New Yorker, Oliver & Company has a special place in my heart. Inspired by a classic Dickens novel and music by Billy Joel - what is not to love? Oliver & Company will have you and the kids up and dancing in no time.
White Fang 6 of 11
Based on an American classic novel, this movie could be the introduction to American literature. Sometimes for kids to appreciate a good book or writer, they need to see the movie first. This could be the perfect introduction.
Underdog 7 of 11
Who doesn't want to root for the underdog? This Disney film lets your kid do just that!
The Shaggy Dog 8 of 11
What I love about being a mom is introducing my son to the movies I watched growing up. The Shaggy Dog is one of those films.
Bolt 9 of 11
Action, adventure, laughs and cute furry pets - Bolt has it all!
Frankenweenie 10 of 11
If you're a sci-fan dog lover, this is the movie to watch. You won't have to wait for Halloween either, this is a family fun movie for any time of year.
Old Yeller 11 of 11
When I was a girl, my dad always talked about Old Yeller. It was one of his favorite movies growing up and one of the only ones that make him cry. I think that's why I love this movie. Because I know it's important to my dad. That's the power of movies. They last for generations. Share this Disney family classic with yours.
