When you combine my love of Christmas with my love of Disney, you have a very merry Shenanigans over here!

If you know anything about this blog, it’s that Disney is a huge focus.

Trips to the Disney parks, runDisney race weekends, Mickey ears, Disney souvenirs… I love it all!

But Disneyland at Christmas is pretty much my favorite.

Since I can’t always get to the Disney parks at Christmas time (hey, Texas is just as good, right, fam?) I do love celebrating the season at home with this ultimate list of Disney movies.

Hey- you do what you gotta do!

The Merriest List of Disney Christmas Movies

You’ll find many of these Disney Christmas movies on the Disney Channel or other locations, but I’ve included Amazon affiliate links if you need to rent or buy in order to watch.

Be sure to give Netflix, Amazon Prime, or your cable on demand a scan before you plunk down money for these.

Have yourself a Merry little Disney Christmas this year!


Running a 5K at Disneyland might be a dream for some; but not everyone wants to run! How about a 5K on rides? Here are the attractions you'll need to experience to complete YOUR Disneyland (ride only) 5K.

I can’t be HERE so I’ll settle for a two-month long Disney Christmas movie marathon instead!
