Best Disney Movies For 5 Year Olds

You might be tired of watching Encanto or Frozen for the 1,000th time, and you’re ready to branch out.

Perhaps you even feel like your child has “aged out” of preschool shows. With SO many choices on Disney+, we’ve sifted through to find the best Disney movies for your 5-year-old.

Before choosing a new movie to introduce to your child, you’ll want to consider whether they’ll be comfortable watching it. Every child is different, and while some may be ready with movies with more intense “villain” scenes or complicated storylines, others may not.
We suggest you do some research ahead of time to review exactly what sort of scenes are included in the film and whether they touch on something that may make your child uncomfortable. And it is always recommended to watch movies with your child — especially the first time — to talk through anything they don’t understand.
This list includes a variety of different types of movies to compliment whatever your child is interested in, be that sports, animals, princesses — basically anything Disney has covered! There’s a bit of variety in maturity here, so you can tailor your watch list to what you think your kid would love best.
