Disney has built up a huge collection of all types of movies over the decades; out of this, animated movies attract millions of people worldwide. Even though it’s hard to rank the Disney animated films, and not just because there are so many of them, but some of them are worth watching, which can make your day.

10. Moana (2016)
Moana is a beautiful movie with great songs and a strong female lead character. The story of the film seems fresh and thrilling as if the plot was innovative, which follows the classic “quest” type story of a girl growing up feeling, she’s destined for more than her quiet life and eventually finding, she’s the chosen one to go on a mission to save the world, but how it gets there is awe-inspiring. You might predict the end, but it will not happen because it has a creative end like other recent anime movies.
Moana may not be comparable with some of the great movies described in the list; it’s still a genuinely good Disney Animated movie. The movie has a fantastic soundtrack, mind-blowing characters, outstanding animation with crystal-clear attention to detail, great messages.
9. Mulan (1998)
Mulan is one of the greatest Disney movies of all time. The movie has the best Disney female characters ever made in the Disney world. Although the story is simple but the villain is very effective, Shan Yu. He has no special power or know the magic, but he is an excellent villain.
When Mulan finds the doll, it seems like Shan Yu left no one living, which makes him so effective as a villain and shows how truly human he is. Even though his character is not deeply developed, but they showed enough as a great villain, in short, which is definitely worth watching. If you haven’t seen it, then do so; you won’t regret it.
8. Big Hero 6 (2014)
Big Hero 6 is among the best Disney animated movies. This movie is made for all ages. The characters are intense, and we can feel like we are also part of the beautiful story. If you like Marvel movies, then you will definitely love this movie.
The movie’s main character is Hiro, his friends, Nerds, and a health care prototype robot, Baymax; they are in the city full of technology. The name of that futuristic city is San Fransokyo. This thriller movie has many elements like action, comedy, and drama. The center attraction of the movie is the robot, Baymax.
He steals the show in all scenes, whether it is his introduction or his care for Hiro and Company. The Villain is quite advance and best in his job. You will see one of the best action scenes, and the film is very educational as well, especially for the children. A strong lesson is there in this film; the friends are the life.
7. Spirited Away (2002)
Spirited Away is one of the top 10 best Disney animated movies. The movie is for adults and children; the movie has many levels, such as social commentary on Japan, a homage to ancient Japanese/Russian mythology.
The lead character in a movie is a young girl named Chihiro, and her parents stumble across an abandoned `amusement park‘ which will turn out in a mysterious bathhouse for the spirit world, where her parents become pigs. The girl started the mission to turn her parents into human again. In this mission, she meets many strange and exotic creatures abiding there, some of them help her, and some don’t. The story is unique and unpredictable; you should definitely watch it once.
6. Tangled (2010)
If I have to describe this movie in one word, it would be “Masterpiece,” this movie is up to the Mark on all levels. The animation, characters, background, all these things are fantastic. You will surprise to look at all of the little details in the movie.
Even though the story is simple, but it’s beautifully illustrated. The princess name Rapunzel is the main character who can heal and keep people young in her hair, but if she cut her hair, she will lose that superpower. One day the princess was kidnapped by an older woman. Now I don’t like to ruin it by giving you more spoiler, but it’s interesting to know who kidnapped her? Why she kidnapped? And how she run out from there? The storyline of the movie is quite interesting and entertaining.

Frozen has everything like realistic character, great screenplay, awesome visuals, heart-melting story, and fantastic music, making it one of the classic movies, not Disney but among the best classic movies. The story is based on Han Christian Andersen’s story “The Snow Queen.“
The film is about two sisters the older sister becomes Queen, who hides his problem that she has magical power with this; she can make things frozen and create snow. I wouldn’t say I like to give you more spoiler about this great movie, but the story becomes more interesting.

Not only this, but the movie succeeds in the box office also with $1.280 billion revenue worldwide.
4. Aladdin (1992)
Aladdin is one of the most well-known Disney movies globally; it’s not surprising that Aladdin became the highest-grossing film of 1992, with a domestic total of $217 million and $504 million worldwide.
The story is about a scrappy “street rat” turned prince who is taken from One Thousand and One Nights (well known as Arabian Nights in English) and was originally pitched in 1988 by Ashman. The story is great with high pace; you will never feel bore while watching this film. The movie is for everyone; you can watch it with your family.
3. Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Beauty and the Beast is the only animated film to get the best picture nomination, and the reason is a stunning work of art. Beauty and the Beast is strengthened by its fantastic animation, amazing voice acting, and Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s music, which has since become some of Disney’s most iconic.
The old story of a young girl finding the true beauty within a beast is captured very well. It can be told anyway, but Disney really makes it the best. The animation is still beautiful even now when they have higher technology. There is no further explanation needed; it’s a must-watch movie for all.
2. Zootopia (2016)
Zootopia is a 3D top-notch animation Disney movie produced by Walt Disney. The movie is co-directed by Byron Howard & Rich Moore; the duo put up an intriguing world on the screen with fresh and quality content with a deep sense of familiarity.
As the name suggest, Zootopia the forest or big city we can say in which all animal live. There are a vast number of characters on the screen, including the largest elephant to shrew. The main character is rabbit named Judy Hopps, who wants to become the police. But the problem is that the citizens are not only rabbit.
Not going in the further story, it is interesting to know if she succeeds in it or not. Suppose she succeeds how she finishes the mission in the forest with many big animals such a Rhinoceros, Lions, and many more. The movie gives a strong message in the end; you can’t afford to miss such a fantastic story.
1. The Lion King (1994)
The first spot on this list goes to The Lion King. The story is inspired by Willam Shakespeare’s Hamlet with fabulous animation with an all-star cast of voices. This is a film which can entertain everyone, young or old. The songs and music of the moves are also incredible.
The main character is Simba, who is a newborn cub of King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi. The story represents the journey of Simba on a love and friendship which will lead him to his own place. Uncle of the Simba, Scar is angry because of Simba’s broth; he will not be the king, so he talks about the elephant graveyard, a hazardous place.
Even the king had forbidden Simba to go there; he goes there with his best friend Nala, where they met Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed, 3 hyenas who try to kill them. I wouldn’t say I like to give you a spoiler, but the story is fascinating. The villain is also one of Disney’s most monstrous. When it comes to movies, everyone has their own taste and preferences, but some movies are for everyone. This is the list of that kind of movie which will surely entertain you.
