The time of year has come when the house is filled with family, cousins, uncles and grandparents gather to eat and dine around a big table with only food, drinks and lots of love. And in the midst of all this chaos, there is time and space to watch a good movie together.


Christmas is an ideal time to watch movies surrounded by those who love us the most. Christmas movies are a tradition as old as eating polvorones. What would Christmas be without Bruce Willis and his Die Hard on TV?

That’s why today we bring you a compilation of the best Christmas movies to watch that Disney+ has in its huge catalog. As you will see, you will have to choose, as watching them all will be impossible… or not.

The best Christmas movies you can watch on Disney+

Christmas Special: Guardians of the Galaxy

This special is a rare bird, but it’s worth seeing the Guardians of the Galaxy more Christmassy and cheerful than you can imagine, without missing their traditional mix of cakes, shots, and action. It’s different and original. Give it a chance.

Nightmare Before Christmas

If you can’t choose between Christmas and Halloween as your favorite holiday, then Nightmare Before Christmas could be the festive movie of your dreams.

In the purest Tim Burton style, this spooky stop-motion classic follows the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, Jack Skellington, who accidentally stumbles upon Christmas Town. Overwhelmed by the Christmas spirit, the skeleton goes ahead with big plans that… well… don’t go as planned.


The Santa Clauses

Tim Allen plays a divorced father who, after accidentally killing Santa Claus, is magically forced to become his successor. While reluctantly learning to be the best Santa Claus possible, he also learns to be a better man.

You can really watch any of the productions in the saga, as they have been making Christmas movies and series with Santa Claus as the protagonist for 20 years.


There are few phenomena in the modern era as puzzling as the universal impact that Frozen has on children. If you want to know what all the fuss is about and you’re ready for your kids to start singing “Let It Go” for the rest of eternity, Disney+ has the solution.

Animated success takes a refreshing twist on the Disney princess formula, prioritizing themes of sisterhood and purpose over the search for “true love’s kiss”.

Home Alone

Although it seems like Kevin McAllister always gets left behind somewhere, Home Alone is a family classic that is far from being forgotten by movie lovers.

Created by John Hughes and starring Macaulay Culkin, the movie revolves around Kevin, the youngest of five siblings, who is accidentally left home alone when his family goes on Christmas vacation. When his seemingly empty house is besieged by burglars, Kevin realizes that being without his family is not what it seems.



Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader play Noelle and Nick Kringle, the children of Kris Kringle. But as the next in line to take on their father’s role as Santa Claus, Nick quickly finds himself crumbling under pressure and when he unexpectedly disappears, it’s up to Noelle to find her brother and save Christmas.

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas

Mickey and the gang welcome us to a night of Christmas stories where they share a collection of old and new tales. Ideal for those with children at home.

From “A Very Goofy Christmas” to a new twist on Disney’s “The Gift of the Magi”, this anthology film offers a lot of variety in its stories and cast, with beloved characters like Goofy, Donald, and more.

What a Christmas Eve

Dashing Through the Snow, as it is originally called, is a heartwarming comedy about an Atlanta social worker who embarks on an unexpected Christmas Eve journey with his estranged daughter to help her remember the joy and magic of the holidays.

Eddie Garrick (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) is a kind-hearted man who has turned his back on Christmas due to a traumatic experience in his childhood.

At the request of his estranged wife, Allison Garrick, Eddie takes his 9-year-old daughter, Charlotte, to work with him on Christmas Eve, where they meet a mysterious man in a red suit named Nick.


A Father in Trouble

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in Jingle All the Way as a last-minute shopper desperately searching for his son’s Christmas gift. What is he looking for? The most popular action figure of the year – Turbo Man – to give it to his son. Naturally, it’s all craziness and outrageous situations.
