Aladdin has a special place in my heart. I also love all Pixar movies but I don’t consider their movies to be children movies.

Ahhh, I love going through the list of movies I’ve rated on Netflix. Fluther questions that give me a reason to do so make me happy. :D

I give films a five-star rating on Netflix when I can watch them over and over and over and over like a four-year-old without ever getting sick of them. Here are the ones I consider kid movies:
– Alice in Wonderland
– The Brave Little Toaster
– The Emperor’s New Groove
– The Great Mouse Detective
– Lady and the Tramp
– The Last Unicorn
– The Lion King
– The Nightmare Before Christmas
– Pete’s Dragon
– Robin Hood
– Spirited Away
– The Sword in the Stone
