Disney’s new streaming service made its launch right before the holiday season and they made sure to include amazing (and classic) Christmas movies so you and your family can get into the holiday spirit.

Let’s take a look at the best Christmas movies now streaming on Disney+:

The Santa Clause

Starring Tim Allen, Wendy Crewson, Judge Reinhold, Eric Lloyd, Larry Brandenburg, and David Krumholtz, this Christmas movie brings joy to families everywhere year after year.

Scott Calvin, a divorced dad who currently has custody of his son, Charlie, on Christmas Eve, accidentally kills a man who was on his roof (and also wearing a Santa suit). Scott and Charlie are then magically transported to the North Pole, where one of Santa’s elves informs Scott that he must take Santa’s place before the next Christmas arrives.
Needless to say, Scott thinks he is dreaming all of this up, but over time, he starts to gain some of the most iconic Santa traits. So, maybe that night at the North Pole wasn’t a dream and maybe, just maybe, Scott has a lot of work to do before the next Christmas.

The Santa Clause 2

The entire Santa Clause trilogy is actually available to stream on Disney+, but personally, I am not a fan of The Santa Clause 3. The Santa Clause 2, however, is a great sequel and is 100% worth watching with the family.

This Christmas sequel follows the story of Tim Allen’s Scott Calvin as he is now taking on his role as Santa Claus. He is finally accepting who he is before he realizes, in order to remain Santa Claus, he must find a Mrs. Claus.

We also follow Charlie as he is now a bit older and unfortunately, becomes a troublemaker, as he struggles with the fact and the reality that his father is Santa.

Who doesn’t love a classic? The Oscar-winning film follows the story of an old man, who goes by the name of Kris Kringle, and fills in for an intoxicated Santa in Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day parade.
Kringle becomes a hit and soon starts to surprise customers and employees by claiming that he is the real Santa Claus, which soon leads to a court case to determine his mental health and his authenticity.

Anna Kendrick plays the daughter of Kris Kringle who is full of Christmas spirit in this Disney+ Original film. But it isn’t always holiday fun as she soon wishes that she could do something “important” like her brother Nick, who was told would take over from their father this Christmas.

You and your family can join Mickey and the rest of the gang for a series of hilarious and heartwarming shorts and stories in Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas. This is a must watch in my household every year!
