Saving Mr. Banks tells the untold, true backstory of how Disney's classic Mary Poppins made it to the big screen. Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L.

  4. The Little Mermaid turned it all around for Disney! Remember the trilogy, Mermaid, Aladdin, Lion King. I love Toy Story, too. It's hard to choose.

  6. The Lion King. Not even a competition compared to the others. Combine and amazing concept, beautiful visuals, Hans Zimmer producing the score and Elton John as lyricist, it really does not get any better than that.

  7. hehe, it was Beauty and the Beast partly because I loved the music and partly because it was the only Disney VHS I owned (it was a hand-me-down), and so I watched it over and over. My girlfriend still teases me about it. :)
