It’s time to determine the best Walt Disney sports movies. Whatever the sport, Disney's probably made a movie about it, from bobsledding to horse racing. Disney has a pretty sizable backlog of often inspirational and comedic sports films, which you can stream across platforms when you bundle your Disney+ subscription. A lot of these movies are classics such as The Mighty Ducks, Cool Runnings and Angels in the Outfield. But are they the top sports films that Disney has to offer? You’ll also find famous actors like Denzel Washington in the Disney football movie Remember the Titans. Dennis Quaid and Jon Hamm have both starred in Disney baseball movies. All of which were inspired by true stories. Rest assured, there are Disney movies for every type of sports fan out there.

Which of these Disney sports films do you love? Vote up all your favorites and vote down the movies that didn’t have you cheering in the stands. Also, be sure to check back for new Disney sports films as they are released.
