‘Annie’ (1999 adaptation)
Watch “Annie” on Disney Plus
While the original version of “Annie” may not be a Christmas movie, the 1999 edition follows everyone’s favorite redheaded orphan as she spends Christmas in Oliver Warbucks’ luxury mansion. I grew up watching this version of “Annie,” so I’m a bit biased, but dare I say it’s better than the original. Plus, this version features plenty of musical theatre stars, including Audra McDonald, Alan Cumming, Kristin Chenoweth, Victor Garber, and Kathy Bates.
‘The Santa Clause’
Watch “The Santa Clause” on Disney Plus
Have you ever wondered what life would be like if your dad turned into Santa? “The Santa Clause” has your answer. Just like “Home Alone,” Disney Plus also features “Santa Clause 2” and “Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause,” creating the perfect movie marathon.
Watch “Frozen” on Disney Plus
Contrary to Elsa’s belief, the cold definitely bothered me anyway. However, “Frozen” is a heartwarming family film to remedy even the coldest of days. When Elsa’s powers unintentionally freeze the city of Arendelle, she and her sister Anna strive to save the city from an endless winter.
‘Miracle on 34th Street’
Watch “Miracle on 34th Street” on Disney Plus

Watch “The Mistle-Tones” on Disney Plus
Christmas movies are fun in any capacity, but especially so when Christmas music is involved! Watch along as two Christmas singing groups compete in a sing-off.
‘Mickey’s Christmas Carol’
Watch “Mickey’s Christmas Carol” on Disney Plus
It’s hard to be a Scrooge while watching anything that Mickey’s involved in. This version of “A Christmas Carol” sticks to the usual storyline, but the Disney twist makes it both fun and family-friendly.
”Twas the Night’
Watch “‘Twas the Night” on Disney Plus
Disney Channel original movies are at the heart of Disney Plus nostalgia. Such is the case with “‘Twas the Night,” which profiles a boy and his uncle as they try to assume Santa’s role on Christmas Eve.

‘The Muppet Christmas Carol’
Watch “The Muppet Christmas Carol” on Disney Plus
“The Muppet Movie” was a favorite of mine growing up, so I was thrilled to see the Christmas iteration available on Disney Plus. Similar to Mickey’s take on the classic, this movie takes the same plot as the original version of “A Christmas Carol,” but Kermit and Miss Piggy add a bit of extra fun.
‘Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas’
Watch “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas” on Disney Plus
Nothing brings the holiday joy quite like Mickey, Minnie, and the whole Disney gang. Watch them reminisce on their favorite Christmas stories in “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas.” The sequel, “Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas” is also available for the whole family to enjoy.
