    I want to show my kids some Disney movies to get them in the mood for our vacation. Which movies would be the best for them to understand the things they'll see at the parks?

    Great idea Rebecca! Our mini van entertainment system plays Disney movies all the way to Walt Disney World to help prime our children for the theme parks.

    Watch The Lion King to help build excitement about two of Disney's Animal Kingdom's attractions- Kilimanjaro Safaris and the Festival of the Lion King. Enjoy Finding Nemo the movie and then enjoy Finding Nemo- the Musical at this park. Future World in Epcot also has a Finding Nemo attraction. 

    The Magic Kingdom is chock full of movie related attractions. Watch at least one PIrate of the Caribbean flicks since Jack Sparrow and the Black Pearl appear in the ride. Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh, Snow
     White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, and Dumbo are all found in Fantasyland attractions. The Haunted Mansion attraction is much better than The Haunted Mansion movie so you might want to skip this Eddie Murphy film.

    Heading to Disney's Hollywood Studios? Disney Jr., Cars, and Toy Story will psych you up for this theme park. Also consider such non Disney classics such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones to better enjoy Star Tours and the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular.

    Consider finding some classic Disney cartoons to enjoy so your children will have a better appreciation of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto. 

    Hope you have time to watch even half of these entertaining videos. Enjoy your magical vacation!
