List RulesVote up the best Disney musical movies.

Walt Disney is probably one of the first film companies that come to mind when you think about musicals. This Disney musical list has both animated and live-action musicals. Several of their classics are animated musicals that blend singing and storytelling to captivate audiences. Disney’s musical repertoire would not be the same with such musicals as Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Annie, and Newsies. But are they the top musical movies that Disney has to offer?

You will also find famous actors such as Anna Kendrick, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, a more in the live-action musical, Into the Woods.

Which of these popular Disney musicals do you love? Vote up all Disney musicals that are your favorites and have lots of singing, then vote down the movies that you didn’t like. Don't see your favorite Disney musical? Feel free to add it to the list and check back to see how other users rank your additions.
