Movies to Prep for Walt Disney World

One piece of advice I always give my clients before they leave for a magical vacation to Walt Disney World is to prep by having family movie nights!

As adults, most of us grew up watching all of the Disney classics, but sometimes, we forget to pass that magic on to our children. Before embarking on a trip to the World, this is a great way to combine some family time with background to some of the major attractions. So, in no particular order, here is a list of 20 movies, along with the ride that they go along with! Unless otherwise notes, the attractions are in Magic Kingdom.
