List Rules Only Disney movies! Anything else is not allowed. Pixar movies that were also somehow Disney affiliated may be counted too.

There may be countless classic Disney movies, but many of their films in the 2000's have been long forgotten due to their unfortunate loss in the box office, which didn't necessarily reflect the quality of their respective stories. If the story telling abilities of these movies didn't captivate your soul, the music in some of these forgotten flicks should have to some extent.
