Whether you were born in 1940 or 2000, the chances are high that many of your best childhood memories include watching a favorite Disney movie. In fact, ever since the first feature film, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” was released in 1937, children from across the globe became infatuated with Disney’s magic. It is not only children that love Disney movies, however. Innumerable adults also find solace in these memorable movies, and will even list anything theme-related at the top of their Christmas and birthday wish lists. Although it may seem difficult at first to come up with the perfect gift for a Disney movie fan, a few basic guidelines will soon earn you the title of most conscientious gift-giver around.
Everyone loves a nostalgic Disney movie
In an age where movie streaming and downloads have taken the place of VHS tapes and DVDs, not many gifts will impress a Disney movie fan as much as a selection of some of the most memorable Disney movies of all time. Mickey classics such as “Fantasia,” “Fun and Fancy Free,” and “The Prince and the Pauper” will all make a welcome addition to any movie collection. Other animated titles that will evoke a healthy dose of nostalgia include “The Fox and the Hound,” “The Rescuers,” “The Aristocats,” and “The Jungle Book.” Although Disney might be best known for some of the most unforgettable animated movies in history, there are many superb live-action films that are also worth rewatching. They include “Mary Poppins,” “Flight of the Navigator,” “The Parent Trap,” and “Bedknobs and Broomsticks.”
