Which movies to see before visiting WDW?

What Disney movies would you consider 'must-see' for a 6 year-old girl before a trip to the World? Thanks!

I would let her watch any movies that have rides/shows associated with them (if you plan on riding them). Especially the rides that have story lines in them, so that she will recognize familiar scenes.

For example:
1. Peter Pan
2. Snow White (avoid this ride if she scares easily)
3. The little mermaid if you are going to the show.
4. Lilo and Stitch
5. Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day
6. Lion King
7. Beauty and the Beast
8. Finding Nemo

Of course, she may be too young for the Pirates movies and Haunted Mansion, but those rides were around before the movie and I loved them at six.

Yup..That's true. It's the most appropriate list for her. I must say she will surely watch The Lion King. It's an amazing movie. I really like this movie..!!

Pocahontas

Aladdin
Cinderella
Mulan
Snow White
Sleeping Beauty
Beauty and the Beast
Lilo and Stitch
and look for some of the compilations at you library for shorts featuring the fab 4 as well as Chip and Dale
