Top 10 Best Disney Easter Movies on Disney+ Plus 2024

This Easter, whether you’re settling in at home or hopping on a video call with your family there will surely be a little time in between cooking and Easter Egg hunting to watch a family favorite. We’ve rounded up the Best Disney Easter Movies you can find on Disney Plus! 

We like to incorporate favorite Disney Plus movies and TV episodes into every holiday. Because at one point in between all the running around like a crazy person, cooking, baking, spending time with family, and activities, we’ll need a break. Usually, our breaks include some kind of special tea or coffee, a snack, and a show to help us decompress. Whether this little show happens in the afternoon or evening doesn’t matter. Either way, you’re sure to get your springtime fun, a couple of Easter movie lessons, and a little much-needed break for you and the family. If you don’t have Disney Plus or are debating, be sure to read our Is Disney Plus Worth It? post. Here’s our lineup of shows to add to your Disney Easter Watchlist on Disney Plus. 

Watch The Wonderful Spring of Mickey Mouse | Full Movie | Disney+

The Wonderful Springtime of Mickey Mouse ( 2022)

We absolutely love the Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse and the Mickey Shorts series that came before this new season. Now, we’re even getting seasonal mash-ups as part of the Disney fun. We already had Mickey Mouse specials on both our Best Halloween Shows on Disney Plus and Best Christmas Shows on Disney Plus. And now the newest Wonderful Springtime of Mickey Mouse is perfect for Eater! With our favorite friends taking to the garden, planting flowers, and finding love, this show features three mini-stories and is perfect to put on while you’re preparing your Easter breakfast. 

Springtime with Roo ( 2004)

If you’re a Winnie the Pooh fan, Springtime with Roo should be part of your Disney Plus Easter Movies lineup! It’s no surprise that Rabbit has very organized plans for spring that include lots (and lots) of cleaning! Unfortunately not all his friends are as excited about cleaning and were just hoping for fun! A springtime movie with loads of lessons, this one is a great film for kids and grown-ups, showing us the importance of play even during the busiest of times. 

Burrow by SparkShorts ( 2020)

We love the SparkShorts and Burrow is so much fun! In this Oscar-nominated Pixar SparkShort, a young rabbit embarks on a journey to dig the burrow of her dreams, despite not having a clue what she’s doing. Rather than reveal to her neighbors her imperfections, she digs herself deeper and deeper into trouble. The fact that it has a bunny makes it Easter enough for us. But, what we most like about this cute cartoon is that it’s about beginning again. Which is exactly what Easter and Springtime are all about. As with all shorts, there is no dialogue which makes watching the story so much more important. This story is about a bunny who learns that starting over doesn’t happen alone. 

Disney’s Silly Symphony: The Goddess of Spring ( 1934)

Disney Plus Easter Movies and shows all include a slew of springtime rituals, and this vintage classic follows goddess Persephone. Telling the story of as she awakens the world with springtime and tries to outrun the god of the Underworld, set on making her his wife. This cartoon is a classic Silly Symphony, complete with music and scenes set in the opera style. And sharing classic myths and legends in the original Disney style of the 1930s.

Ice Age: The Great Egg Scapade (2016)

If your family is a fan of the Ice Age movies, then this one should be on your watchlist. The gang gets together again in this movie in search of a lost egg. A harried prehistoric bird mother entrusts her precious, soon-to-hatch egg to Sid. When she recommends him to her neighbors, business booms at his new egg-sitting service. However, dastardly pirate bunny, Squint, who is seeking revenge on the herd, steals, camouflages and hides all the eggs. Once again, with Squint’s twin brother assisting, Manny, Diego and the rest of the gang come to the rescue and take off on a daring mission that turns into the world’s first Easter egg hunt. With zany characters, a little revenge plot, and the start of a new Easter tradition, this one is perfect if you’re looking for something to keep the kiddies occupied while you finish cooking the dinner! 

Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe (2005)

Disney Movies for Easter come in all shapes and sizes. While not specifically Easter, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe is a classic much like Sound of Music that always just shows up this time of year. Mainly for its Christian symbolism in the form of Aslan, this movie helps resets our spirit and has a lot of links to the actual bible stories. Thankfully, Disney Plus has this series on the platform. We love this movie both at Christmas and Easter for that epic feeling of new beginnings. Just what we need this time of year. 

Sound of Music Easter Movies on Disney

The Sound of Music (1965)

A musical classic starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, this classic film was typically shown at Easter on television in the good old days. The story follows the Van Trapp family in the midst of WW2. Nun turned governess turned mother and wife, Julie Andrews plays Maria. As she breathes new life into the family and home of the Van Trapp family, she also gives them the tool they need to escape under cover from the Nazis- music. Sound of Music inspires with beautiful songs, the power of family, and doing what’s right, even when it’s difficult. Based on a true story, this film shares such a great message any time of year. One of our favorite Disney Plus Easter Movies. 

Who Framed Roger Rabbit ( 1988)

This classic animated and live action feature from the 80’s features Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd and Kathleen Turner as Jessica Rabbit herself. While a little heavy for the kids, this mashup of a human detective investigating the murder of Marvin Acme in Toontown, may be just what you need to add a little lightness to the season. With scandal after scandal and a sinister Judge Doom to blame, this film is a classic, and available on Disney+ Plus.

Tinkerbell ( 2008)

Sharing the origin story of Tinkerbell herself, this Disney animated film is perfect if you’re ready to dust off the snow of the winter months and head into springtime. With fun fairies, beautiful flowers and a little mystery, we love watching all the Tink movies in the spring months. 

Alice in Wonderland ( 1951)

While everyone else is watching Bambi for Easter, we opt for something a little more cheery, if not curious. Alice in Wonderful comes complete with fun garden friends and flowers, and a bunch of questions that may never become answered. Entering the topsy turvy world of Wonderland, you can head to teatime with the White Rabbit and the March Hare. We think this Disney Easter movie is perfect for any golden afternoon.

Easter Movies on Disney Plus with the Easter Bunny

Rise of the Guardians ( 2012)

By far one of our favorite Easter films, Rise of the Guardians, combines all our favorite holiday characters. Including the Easter Bunny himself! This is a story about believing. Believing in yourself and something bigger than yourself. All of which is needed to combat the forces of darkness. Another great film, with a little lesson perfect for this time of year! 

The Prince of Egypt ( 1998)

It’s true that this family Easter movie is NOT on Disney Plus, but you can watch it free on Peacock. By far one of the best movies for children that actually shares the bible stories, this is well worth the watch. The Dreamworks animation in this film is spectacular. If you’re looking for something with some meat on it for the holiday, The Prince of Egypt tells the story of Moses. A perfect way to begin the Easter season. 

It’s the Easter Beagle Charlie Brown ( 1974)

Easter Parade ( 1948)

A nightclub performer hires a naive chorus girl to become his new dance partner to make his former partner jealous and to prove he can make any partner a star. But of course, this causes a bit of a love tringle, culminating in a proposal at the Easter Parade.

Complete with springtime rituals and misunderstandings, this film is a fun one to help kickstart the season.
