Right behind Marvel and Pixar, the Easter egg king of Hollywood movie making is most certainly Disney. The animators work on these films for years at a time, and like to sneak in little jokes and references for fans to discover for years to come. People scour these movies with a fine tooth comb, looking for any clever Disney Easter eggs and hidden nods that throw back to Disney’s storied history. This list includes all kinds of fun facts and little details you might not have noticed in Disney’s animated classics.

Disney has been planting Easter eggs (by hand and frame by frame, back in the day) since before the term was even relevant. From Genie's many, many references to other classic Disney movies in Aladdin, to the many Lady and the Tramp nods in 101 Dalmatians, Easter eggs in Disney movies are everywhere, if you're only paying attention!

This list contains Easter eggs from classic Disney animated films (all pre-1995). So, whether it's Sebastian showing up in Aladdin, Bambi's mother being resurrected and appearing in flashback in a few films, or Goofy, Mickey and Donald popping up in the strangest of places, these are the best Easter eggs in classic Disney Films!

Upvote the most interesting and surprising classic Disney movie Easter eggs below and don't worry, there's an entire list of Easter eggs from modern Disney movies and all those hidden Mickeys, too!
