Right in the heart of Disneyland park lies Fantasyland, the fairytale village that brings to life the wonder and magic of some of our favorite Walt Disney Animation Studios classic films. We can start with the icon of the park, Sleeping Beauty Castle, and then work our way through Pinocchio’s Daring Journey and Peter Pan’s Flight for some whimsical, classic animation.

What films or shows on Disney+ remind you of Disneyland park?


  • Please add my “vote” (if you are counting them) to Dustin and Deb’s. I, too, would love to see the Samantha Brown shows from Disney Parks and hotels, as well as shows from “The Wonderful World of Color” and Walt’s early “Disneyland” shows. Like Deb’s family, my siblings and I watched WWC every Sunday night.

    Fantastic memories. As most Disney-related memories are.

  • While Disneyland is closed, what a GREAT time to reimagine parking. That’s my only complaint when it comes to the park experience.

    Stay safe and happy. God bless Walt!

  • I just signed up for Disney+ and have been watching non-stop. I did a full 2 -3 days of Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings. I love Disney Insiders as well. I love seeing all the parks and locations that I didn’t know existed. I love Disney so much! Haven’t been to a Disney Park in about 7 years. I have been trying to round up the troops to go but with schedules plus complaints about it being too expensive, to no avail. I always say with proper expense planning, it is possible. At this point, I am ready to go alone. Does anyone know anyone that was gone by themselves and not been miserable about to? Thoughts?

  • Yes Deb! That is an amazing idea!! Please Disney…make it happen it would mean the world. We could all use a little extra magic these days. Wonderful World of Disney<3

  • Yes, I agree with Deb. It would be so nice to see the Wonderful World of Disney tv shows from my childhood on Disney +.

  • @Deb WOW! GREAT IDEA! I grew up scampering to the television on Sunday evenings. We’d rush home from visiting our grandparents and make it home just in time!
    The Wonderful World of Disney! <3!

  • You know what i would love the MOST? The wonderful world of color and Disneyland episodes. I was so sure they wold put these on Disney+. Sunday night was family night in my house as a kid. We lay on the floor infront of the TV. And watched the Wonderful World of Disney…i could use that right now

  • I keep an up-to-date spreadsheet of movies/shorts that relate to anything featured in the 4 Disney World parks. It’s QUITE extensive and doesn’t even include the resorts or Disney Springs.

  • I miss Disneyland so much! I have been watching Disney+ everyday while I am home, but I can’t wait for the Disney Parks to open back up.

  • There are travel specials about the Disney parks, most recently I recall some on The Travel Channel. Samantha Brown also has had Disney parks and hotels-related shows. Could those and other similar Disney-centric shows be put on Disney+ also? They are a smash hit with our family, undoubtedly many other Disney families, it would be great to have access to these from Disney!
