Which ones do they NEED to watch?

Hi!
I'm taking my 2 daughters, 5 and 2 to WDW next January. Which movies should they see so that they are familiar and identify with the rides/characters?
They are already very familiar with pooh, Minnie and Mickey, tinkerbell. My daughter still thinks most Disney movies are scary and won't watch them. Tips? Suggestions?!

Any movies where there are direct references in the parks would be a good place to start.

You can meet characters from:
Aladdin
Cinderella
Beauty and the Beast
Sleeping Beauty
Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs
Rapunzel
The Princess and the Frog
Mulan
Alice in Wonderland
Peter Pan (and any of the newer Tinkerbell movies)
The Lion King
Up
Pocahontas

There are several Sing Along Songs movies that show kids interacting with the characters at WDW & DL. Those are great to show kids before going because they show them the characters relative sizes in comparison to real kids. They may not be your standard Disney movies, but they really help with that first trip for little ones. Like this: http://www.amazon.com/Sing-Along-Son.../dp/B0009X75W4

OP I'm working on the same thing with my nearly 5-year-old! She likes the idea of a princess but finds most of the movies too scary. She liked the Aristocats. She LOVES Toy Story. She got through Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast but has no interest in watching them again. Watching this thread with interest!
