Okay, I wanted to bump this thread up for other people…and then I realized I AM SUCH AN IDIOT. :hmmm

I was only thinking older Disney movies, and I completely forgot my favorite live-action Disney movie of all time! (I saw it 5 times in the theater!)

#1 Pirates of the Caribbean!!! :smiley:

Now that I got that out of my system…


Oh my…how could I forget that one!! Thats my favorite, too…so I have changed my post as well!!

I also LOVE the Parent Trap (both versions, but esp the original!!)


Gosh, top five might be a stretch for me…I’m an animated chick!

  1. Mary Poppins, baby!!:smiley:
  2. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (can’t it be on both lists?) :cry:
  3. The Parent Trap (original!)
  4. The Three Lives of Thomasina (I couldn’t sleep one night, it was the only thing on!)

Well…I didn’t reach five… but I’ve got some that I WANT to see and haven’t yet! Song of the South (nigh impossible to buy, though) and 20K Leagues Under the Sea…I’m very curious, that’s all!


This is much harder than the animated choices!

  1. Pirates!
  2. Songs of the South
  3. Homeward Bound (makes me cry every single time!)
  4. The baseball on that came out a few years ago…can’t think of the name.

  2. Swiss Family Robinson
  3. The Duke
  4. Original Freaky Friday Haven’t seen the new one( YET)
  5. Bedknobs and Broomsticks
    Tom and Huck
    Hocus Pocus
    and on…
    and on…

Here is a great site to refresh your memories on Disney films… after I looked I realized I had MANY favorites! LOL


Anyone know if The adventures of Spin and Marty was a Disney film and if there is a sequel? Seems to me it was???

Pete’s Dragon and The Apple Dumpling Gang movies. All seen at the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Show when I was little.

Rented Pete’s Dragon once for my older boys and they didn’t like it. Phewy on them.


  1. Pirates of course!!
  2. The Three Musketeers
  3. Homeward Bound
  4. The Mighty Ducks
  5. TRON

And I thought comparing Disneyland and Walt Disney World was tough! Well, here goes my top 10 (too many for just five):

  1. The Absent Minded Professor
  2. Pirates of the Caribbean
  3. The Shaggy Dog
  4. The Rocketeer
  5. The Parent Trap (new)
  6. Haunted Mansion
  7. Follow Me Boys!
  8. The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh (I think was made for TV, though…)
  9. Flubber (Robin Williams)
  10. Tower of Terror (made for Disney Channel)

I left out some of my faves - Mary Poppins, Bedknobs & Broomsticks and Pete’s Dragon, since they mixed animation with live action.



In no particular order (except the first two)

  1. Song of the South
  2. Pete’s Dragon
    Apple Dumpling Gang Series
    No Deposit No Return
    Mary Poppins
    Bedknobs and Broomsticks
    The Parent Trap (old)
    Herbie Series
    North Ave. Irregulars
    Haunted Mansion
    and every other Disney non-animated movie not mentioned, 'cause I love ’ em all. :mickey:



WOW! This is just too hard… I love all the movies listed, but I can’t believe this one has not made the list yet…

Remember the Titans!

This is one of the best movies of our time!


Oh, Yeah, I forgot that one and they play bits of it at all the Titans games. Man, Brer Rabbit is going to smack me for that. She is a BIG Titans fan and a Jr. Titan Cheerleader and friends with several of their cheerleaders. OUCH!!! Mom’s gonna get it for that one.


There are so many to choose from but here’s my top 5.

  1. Any of the Love Bug movies

  2. The Absent-Minded Professor

  3. The Parent Trap (original)

  4. Bon Voyage

  5. Freaky Friday (both but I like the original better)

Thinking of these makes me want to go and rent these. I like the newer non-animated movies but something about the older ones just seems to me to be more enjoyable. :smile:


Oh, Yeah, I forgot Freaky Friday. I love Jodie Foster in that movie. She was classic.
