Holiday Movies on Disney+

Our Top Pick 

Home Alone (1990)

With so many great holiday movies included in the Disney Plus subscription, it’s hard to pick just one. But, hands down, one of the best holiday movies on Disney Plus (and arguably the best in general) is Home Alone. Macaulay Culkin stars as 8-year-old Kevin McCallister who is accidentally left at home while the rest of his family travels to Paris. Kevin defends his home from two burglars (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) while his mother (Catherine O'Hara of Schitt’s Creek) attempts to get back to Kevin in the Chicago suburbs.

There’s not much left to say about this holiday classic that hasn’t been said already. It’s a Wonderful Life is a timeless reminder of gratitude and self-worth. George Bailey (James Stewart) gives up his dreams of traveling the world to stay back in the small town of Bedford Falls to help his family and friends. Just when he thinks about giving up, he’s visited by his guardian angel, Clarence, who shows George how different life would be for his family and town if he was never born.
