If you're subscribing to the Disney+ streaming service and are trying to decide what to watch, you're in luck! We've compiled this list of the best movies coming to Disney Plus. The announcement of this new service was greeted with great enthusiasm. Disney has an extraordinary library of its own titles, going back decades. They also own Marvel, LucasFilm, Pixar, and the Muppets, so that gives them access to an even larger library of beloved titles. All in all, if you've ever asked yourself "what's on Disney+?" There will be something available for just about anyone who even remotely likes movies.

In selecting the best Disney Plus movies, we have attempted to stick with those that most fans are excited about. Both animated and live-action features have made the list along with Disney+ exclusives. Some of the movies, like Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs and Mary Poppins, are older classics. Others - like Inside Out, Frozen, and Guardians of the Galaxy - are more recent favorites. There are also some outstanding documentaries to stream, including the Oscar-winning Free Solo.

Vote up the movies you're most excited to watch on Disney+ from the list below, regardless of genre. Don't see your favorite movie that's available on Disney Plus? Be sure to add it so others can vote on it.
