Movies to watch before disney(older)

I wanted to show my kids some movies that relate to the attractions and was trying to get suggestions. I know all the recent ones, cars, princesses,etc. I am not looking for those.

I am looking for ones kids these days may not be familiar with. I thought of tom sawyer (for ts island). and steamboat willie. What else?

My kids weren't really familiar with Mary Poppins or Alice in Wonderland, they just didn't get into them, but they love them now that they are back from seeing the "real" person. LOL

I guess I am lucky to be old enough to have seen Song of The South at the drive-in when I was young. I still remember a lot of it. Disney has appearently determined it would be in poor taste to allow it to be shown now. I still love the songs.

You did not say how old your kids are but if they are old enough to "get" them make sure they have seen Indiana Jones and Honey I shrunk the kids. I really think my kids enjoyed those shows more because they had seen the movies.

My kids LOVE Swiss Family Robinson. That's a must-see if you're going to their treehouse.

I guess reading the stories about Uncle Remus isn't the same without the catchy music is it?

Again, depending on how old they are, Pirates of the Caribbean! Yo ho, yo ho! Peter Pan. The new Alice in Wonderland movie comes out before too long. I can't wait to see that!

It comes out the day we are at disney! I like the one that was on tv back in 1985. I was 5 then so I guess it has sentimental value to me. I haven't cared for the other ones I have seen. I am just not excited about he new one.
