Cold and rainy days are for wrapping yourself in a blanket and becoming a sofa burrito, don’t you think?

Instead of just becoming one with your couch, have your friends and family join you in these seven Disney+ movies. These Christmas-themed or magical-themed movies may give you the extra warmth and comfort you need during this cold weather.

1. The Guardians Of The Galaxy: Holiday Special (2022)

This isn’t exactly a movie, but it will be a great Christmas viewing while we wait for the third installment of Guardians Of The Galaxy, which comes out next year. Or you can also do a recap of Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014) and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017).

On a mission to make Christmas unforgettable for Quill, the Guardians head to Earth in search of the perfect present.

2. Frustrated (2022)

The highly anticipated sequel to 2007’s Bewitched with Amy Adams reprising her role as Giselle? Yes please! Read our review here.

It has been fifteen years since Giselle and Robert have been married, but Giselle has grown disillusioned with life in the city. They decide to move their growing family to the sleepy suburban community of Monroeville in search of a more fanciful life–unfortunately, it wasn’t the quick fix she had hoped for.

Suburbia has a whole new set of rules and a local queen bee, Malvina Monroe, who makes Gisele feel more out of place than ever. Frustrated that it wasn’t easy to find her happiness afterwards, she turns to the magic of Andalusia for help, accidentally turning the entire town into a true fairy tale, putting her family’s future happiness in jeopardy.

Now, Giselle is in a race against time to reverse the spell and determine what happily ever after really means for her and her family.

3. Home Alone (1990)

What is Christmas without the classics? You can even host a movie marathon with Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, Home Alone 3, and Home Alone 4.

Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister became the man of the house, overnight! Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off for the Christmas holidays, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the holidays. But he does not decorate the halls with tinsel and solemnity. Two bumbling burglars try to break in, and Kevin rigs a bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them in!

4. Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas (1999)

Need something to keep the kids entertained? Get Mickey and his friends to help! You can even follow up with Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas (2004).

Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy and Pluto come together to reminisce about love, magic and surprises in three wonder-filled stories of Christmas past. In the wonderful tradition of Disney stories, Minnie and Mickey remember the year they both gave up the most important thing to them for the other, making for an unforgettable birthday.

Goofy and Max retell the events of when they went through a series of funny but disruptive events of the season… until a visit from the real Santa made it the most magical holiday. Reflecting on the time they wished it was Christmas every day, Donald’s nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie remember that their dream turned into a comical disaster, eventually teaching them what true holiday spirit is.

5. Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas (2011)

If this 24-minute TV special wasn’t enough, (re)watch the series Ice Age: Ice Age (2002), Ice Age: The Meltdown (2006), Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs (2009), Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) and Ice Age: Collision Course (2016).

When Sid accidentally ruins one of Manny’s Christmas traditions, he’s told he’ll now be on Santa’s naughty list. To plead his case directly to Santa Claus himself, Sid heads to the North Pole with Crash, Eddie, and the Peaches.

6. The Night Before Christmas (1993)

Let Tim Burton give you a funky birthday! Your kids can also enjoy this singing version.

Get into an unusual world full of magic and wonders, where every holiday has its own land. This is the heartfelt tale of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown and all things that go bump in the night. Bored of the same old tricks and tricks, he longs for something else, and soon stumbles upon the glorious magic of Christmas Town. When Jack decides to bring this holiday cheer back to Halloween Town, his dream of filling Santa’s shoes is unraveled, and it’s up to Sally, the doll who loves him, to put things together again.

7. Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

How about a magical Christmas this year? Watch Mary Poppins make the impossible possible and reignite the joy of being a child. You can also pick up the 1964 original or the sing-along version.

Magic returns in this re-imagined Disney classic as Mary Poppins helps the Banks family remember the joy of what it’s like to be a kid. Along with her friend Jack the Lamp, the fun returns to the streets of London in celebration that anything is possible…even the impossible!
