Best Disney Plus Originals
Disney+ has launched several originals from series to films. Here are our top picks.
Diary of a Future President
Diary of a Future President explores the origin of a future president. This family comedy follows Elena's journey through the ups and downs of middle school, which set her on the path to becoming the president of the United States.
Although the main focus is on a 12 year-old girl, both of my children enjoy the show. It's full of laughs and heart-warming moments that are perfect for family time or you need to go watch something because you're driving me insane time.
Stargirl is based on the New York Times' best-selling young adult novel about an unassuming high schooler who finds himself inexplicably drawn to the free-spirited new girl, whose unconventional ways change how they see themselves and their world. Leo Borlock is an average student that has always been content flying under the radar.
But all that changes when he meets Stargirl Caraway, a confident and colorful new student who stands out in a crowd. She is kind, finds magic in the mundane, and touches the lives of others with the simplest of gestures.
High School Musical The Musical The Series
Once a Wildcat always a Wildcat. I am not ashamed to admit I like this series as much as my kids, if not more because I'm an OG Wildcat.
Lady and the Tramp
The classic is brought to life in this live-action re-imagination. If The Lion King turned you off with it's super realistic (read: lack of) expressions don't worry. Lady and the Tramp is more like Air Bud.
Togo is the untold story of the dog who led the 1925 serum run. He was considered by most to be too small and weak to lead such an intense race but he did it. Although Balto gets all the glory, it was actually Togo who did most of the run, over 300 miles while Balto only did about 30 miles.
Timmy Failure Mistakes Were Made
Based on the best-selling book of the same name, Timmy Failure follows the adventures of deadpan Timmy and his 1,500 pound partner, a polar bear named Total. Together they solve mysteries for their Portland deceptive agency, Total Failure Inc.
Disney Plus Educational Series
Who said you can't learn anything from watching TV? Ok, Boomer there is a lot of educational content on Disney+. My husband and I couldn't believe some of things we learned by watching Jeff Goldblum's curiosity in ordinary life. Did you know there are shoe cons where people buy shoes for more than the cost of a fully-loaded SUV? Mind blowing.
The World According to Jeff Goldblum
Jeff Goldblum learning about things we probably haven't thought twice about such as the allure of BBQ and a good pair of jeans. As random as it seems, this show is addicting and fun to watch.
This competition series featuring teams of young builders who are tasked with designing, building, and testing unique creations. Each episode has a new challenge. The end results are awesome.
The Imagineering Story
The DisNerd in me absolutely loved this series. I have my fingers crossed they will make more. If you want to learn the history of the Disney Company and see behind the scenes into the magic of everything they do, this is the show for you.
National Geographic Shows & Disneynature Films
Take a deeper look into our world from animals and plants to habitats and beyond. The nature nerd in me loves having all this content right at my beck and call.
90s Disney Channel Classics on Disney Plus
I'm not going to explain any of these because they are classics and you should know them all by heart. If you can't sing the Kim Possible theme song then we cannot be friends.

Whew, these suggestions were a tough list to come by. After all we each have our favorites and there are so many more I didn't even get a chance to list. If I did this post would be longer than it already is!
Frozen and Frozen 2
Personally, I like the second one better than the first. Plus I don't find Into the Unknown to be an obnoxious ear worm like Let it Go. Hey Elsa agrees, just look at the Frozen 2 Easter Eggs if you don't believe me.
The Lion King
aka the greatest animated movie of all time. I will hear no arguments.

Marvel Movies on Disney Plus
I own all the Marvel movies but laziness can win out and I don't want to get up to find the blu-ray yah know? Not only can I relive my favorite moments, Captain America Elevator Fight Scene hello, but I can watch special featurettes not available on the discs.
Are you emotionally ready to return to Endgame? No lie I still feel so many things when the “Portals” scene/music plays. Cap ready to stand and fight alone, everyone coming back, and AVENGERS ASSEMBLE! Ah such an amazing moment. And yes I'm still salty about all the award season snubs.
