Up (2009) 

This heartfelt, hilarious, and exciting film is a perfect classic Disney movie for family night. When Carl Fredricksen’s lifelong partner, Ellie, passes away, he decides to fulfill her wishes of moving their home to Paradise Falls, a location in South America the couple was strongly fascinated by. Carl embarks on his journey with the assistance of many helium balloons, and, much to his dismay, Russell is an eight-year-old wilderness explorer. The film is nothing short of exhilarating as along the way, Carl and Russell encounter a dog with an English translating collar and a gigantic abnormal bird. Embark on the mismatched crew’s adventure to find out if they fulfill Ellie’s wish by watching Up today.  

Beauty and the Beast (1991) 

The title says it all in this 1990s classic. Beautiful Belle finds her father locked in a castle dungeon belonging to the town’s Beast after he becomes lost in the forest. To release her father, she must trade herself, which results in a romantic connection between Belle and the Beast. Previous to the Beast being, well, a beast, he was once a prince who had a spell cast on him, and that can only become undone when he learns to love or be loved by another. With Belle’s lover Gaston in the way, events take a turn for the worst, but this classic romantic love story certainly does have a happy ending, that’s for sure.  

Finding Nemo (2003) 

Finding Nemo puts into perspective how wide and open the deep sea really is. The film is full of suspense, as young Nemo, a Clownfish, is captured by scuba divers on his first school day. His father, Marlin, embarks on a journey to find him and picks up the iconic blue tang fish, Dory, on the way. The pair must “just keep swimming” as they go to extreme lengths to find young Nemo, meeting many unique and charismatic characters along the way. That keeps the journey highly entertaining, for the audience, we mean, certainly not panicked Marlin or ditsy Dory, making it one of the best classic Disney movies for a night in with the family. You can watch it on your laptop.

The Lion King (1994) 

When a young lion, Simba, is born in the Pride Lands of Africa, his father, Mufasa, demonstrates him to Pride Rock, showing the animals their new future leader. Unhappy with this, Mufasa’s estranged, villain brother Scar attempts to get rid of them both, which would make him the new leader. His plot sort of goes to plan as he kills Mufasa and claims that it was Simba’s fault. He then forces Simba to flee, telling him to never come back, as he takes over Pride Rock. In a new carefree life, where “Hakuna Matata” is the only motto to go by, Simba decides it is only right to return home to fight for what is his.
