If you are heading to Disneyland Paris this year, then it goes without saying that you are probably well versed in lots of Disney movies. The likes of Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella may be in your movie collection, like ours. Not just for the little ones, but for the grown ups to enjoy too. *Yes, I’ll be watching Beauty and the Beast for the billionth time tonight! #NeverTooOld
Disneyland Paris cleverly features and also throws references to so many of the wonderful classics just like The Sword in the Stone!
But there are a few stand out must-see Disney movies that I wish we had watched before going in February as they are featured rides in the parks. And if you know the movies, it’s going to make the rides that bit extra sparkly and fun.
Here’s our top 12 must-see Disney movies before going to Disneyland Paris.
