As the song goes, it's the most wonderful time of the year. For a lot of people, that means it's also the coziest time of the year. There’s no need to venture out into the snow for holiday parties when there are plenty of ways to celebrate right at home. The cold weather and dark nights are the perfect elements to create a perfect holiday movie night in, especially when there are a bunch of holiday movies on Disney+ that can give you plenty of holiday magic from the comfort of your own home.

At this point, Disney pretty much has the market cornered on magic. So if you're looking for some holiday magic this season, Disney's streaming service Disney+ is the perfect place to look.

Whether you're looking for a holiday romance, a nostalgia-tinged comedy, or some family fun, this list of movies on Disney+ covers all the possibilities for holiday movie magic. So grab a cozy blanket, your favorite holiday snack, and maybe even a pair of festive Mickey Mouse ears, and get in the Disney holiday spirit.

1. Home Alone


This 1990 classic just doesn't get old. If you want to keep the mischievous fun going with Macaulay Culkin's Kevin McCallister, you can also watch the sequel on Disney+.

2. Noelle

This Disney+ original premiered last year and is already a holiday classic. Anna Kendrick stars as Santa Claus' daughter, who learns how to harness her own holiday magic.

3. Snowglobe

Christina Milian stars in this movie as a woman who discovers a literally perfect winter wonderland. But, she needs to work to keep the holiday wonder alive.

4. Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas

If you want to spend the holidays with Mickey, Minnie, and all the other classic Disney characters, then this is the pick for you. In this special, Mickey and his friends go on a bunch of holiday-themed adventures that'll warm your heart.

5. The Mistle-Tones


The Mistle-Tones originally aired on ABC Family and is full of fun musical moments. In this movie, rival music groups compete in a very sparkly and bright Christmas Eve sing-off.

6. Full-Court Miracle

No Disney+ list would be complete without at least one Disney Channel Original Movie. This one brings a little Hanukkah representation to the list as well, with a group of young Jewish basketballers channeling the story of Hanukkah to help them become champions.

7. The Santa Clause

Tim Allen stars as none other than Santa Claus himself in this modern classic. When his divorced dad character discovers Santa fell off his sled, he needs to take over as jolly old St. Nick.

8. The Nightmare Before Christmas

For years, families everywhere have debated whether this is actually a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie. But the truth is, it’s so good, it can be an every-holiday movie.

9. Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

There’s something so sweet about seeing how Belle and the Beast celebrate Christmas together, and I would love nothing more than an entire series of holiday movies starring all the classic Disney movie characters.

10. Frozen


Speaking of Disney movies, Frozen definitely deserves a place in your cozy rotation. While not explicitly a holiday movie, almost every frame of this movie showcases a winter wonderland that will immediately make you want to snuggle up and sing along to the iconic score.

11. Jingle All the Way

Enjoy a little ‘90s throwback with this Christmas comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad as two dads who are desperate to get their kids the season’s most popular toy.

12. Home Sweet Home Alone

The Christmas classic gets a refresh with this newest installment in the Home Alone franchise. Come for the wild hijinks, stay for the heartwarming holiday moments.
