Get ready for Christmas with Disney+ when it launches on November 12th. Here are 25 Disney+ Christmas movies and shows to watch starting on day one!
Goodbye October and hello Christmas! In my house, it’s Christmas for the entire months of November and December, save for Thanksgiving Day and I am ready.
I’m not at all sorry either. I mean Thanksgiving doesn’t even have songs. What’s a girl to do? Especially when she already saw Frozen 2 in the theater and just wants to stay home.
Plus, there are so many things to do and see and eat and watch during the holidays, you really need the full two months. If you’ve been listening to my podcast (Now Streaming Disney Plus), you know Patty and I are counting the days to the November 12th launch so we can see all the original Disney Plus shows and movies.
If you haven’t, come on over and join the fun! You can subscribe to Now Streaming Disney Plus in your favorite podcast app or listen right here on this site.
November 12th is especially exciting for my Christmas-loving friends because Disney+ will have not one, but 25 Christmas movies available to watch on day one! Possibly more. Have you subscribed yet?
I went through the list of more than 800 day one titles to find the Christmas movies and shows. So grab your hot cocoa and your snuggie because it’s movie time!
25 Disney+ Christmas Movies and Shows to Watch on Day One
There are a few older movies, some fun shows and even a brand new Disney+ Christmas original on the list. Something for everyone. I even included a couple of my favorites to watch during the season that may not be official Christmas movies at all. Fight me.
I won’t chat about every movie but I wanted to start with Noelle because it’s a brand new Disney+ original and I am here for it! Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader are so fun to watch and I think they will play great off one an other as siblings.
Read the synopsis below and check out my Noelle review here!
In Disney+’s holiday comedy “Noelle,” Kris Kringle’s daughter is full of Christmas spirit and holiday fun, but wishes she could do something “important” like her beloved brother Nick, who will take over for their father this Christmas. When Nick is about to crumble like a gingerbread cookie from all the pressure, Noelle suggests he take a break and get away…but when he doesn’t return, Noelle must find her brother and bring him back in time to save Christmas.
