One part of the holiday season that I looked forward to the most as a child and I still treasure today are watching “Christmas Specials”. My father used to record Christmas themed programs onto VHS tapes (sometimes he even tried to edit the commercials out). We would enjoy those tapes throughout the month of December into January. DVDs, BlueRays, DVRs, and streaming content to our mobile devices, have made these programs more readily available today.
Although not all of my favorites are by Disney, here are the DWDads – Top 5 Disney Christmas movies:
1) Mickey’s Christmas Carol – (1983) as part of Mickey’s Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mickey Mouse – Currently steaming on Netflix; Airing December 18 @ 7:30PM on ABC Family
2) A Muppet Chrismas Carol – Airing Friday December 6 @ 6:30PM on ABC Family
3) The Santa Clause Series – Parts 1, 2 & 3 – Airing multiple times in December on ABC Family including all three starting @ 6:00PM on December 21st;
4) A Christmas Carol (2009) Available on DVD @ Amazon for under $10
5) Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas (1999) – Currently Steaming on Netflix
