There’s no better time than Christmas to sit down with the family and watch a fantastic festive Disney film. Disney has produced a variety of seasonal movies over the years featuring many of the famous characters that can be seen by guests on Disneyland Paris holidays. Here’s a list of the best Disney films to snuggle up to and watch over the Christmas season:

The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
Following the story ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens, ‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’ is a fun and witty production that remains faithful to the original text. The film follows the famous story of Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine) who is more interested in making money than enjoying any Christmas celebrations.

The Santa Claus (1994)
Making his feature film debut, Tim Allen starred in this feel-good movie that the whole family is sure to love. In ‘The Santa Claus’, the life of Scott Calvin (played by Allen) is transformed when he and his son Charlie witness Santa fall off the roof of their house. With drama, fantasy and lots of laughs, Scott unwittingly assumes the role of Santa, complete with beard and belly, as he struggles to prepare for Christmas.

Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas (1997)
Taking place within the timeline of the original movie, ‘Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas’ is a wonderful Christmas movie for children. The film sees the Beast forbid Christmas until Belle and some of the other characters, that can be seen at Eurodisney Paris, convince him that it is a good holiday after all.

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas (1999)
No Christmas movie collection would be complete without an appearance from Mickey Mouse, so ‘Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas’ is perfect for the whole family. Featuring Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, Donald Duck and many more, the film has three separate segments that are equally as entertaining and is the perfect film to watch on Christmas Eve.
