Oh these are fantastic choices! I can’t wait for Dory!!
Such good picks! We love all of those movies and have watched them numerous times :)
Surfs Up was a favorite for a lONG time in our house. It was very funny and had a great story
I never thought about linking The Little Mermaid to Finding Dory. I can see that – both under the sea movies by Disney!
I cannot wait for Finding Dory to come out this summer. We definitely will be watching these movies too to get ready :)
Hands down my favorite movie is Little Mermaid. I’m going to have to go watch it again after seeing this.
Just saw an ad for this tonight! Can’t wait to see it.
My girls love Ice Age. I don’t think they’ve watched Surf’s Up. I bet they would love it!
We just watched Happy Feet again the other night. Your selections are fantastic, and I think they’ll tide us over until Finding Dory is released. We’re looking forward to it. Thanks for the suggestions.
So many great and fun movies! My kids love some of these and so do I. I can’t wait to see Finding Dory! It looks so much fun.
Shark Tale and Surfs Up are two of our favorites. We could watch them over and over. I recommend them!
The Little Mernaid is my top pick.
Such big names in the animated movies. It’s fun to pick them out when you’re watching.
These are all such fun picks. However, The Little Mermaid will always be my favorite animated film :)
These are all so good! We can’t wait to see finding Dory in it’s entirety soon!
I’ve seen all of the other movies, but sadly have not seen Finding Dory yet. This will be something we will see this summer for sure.
I’ve seen all of them, and loved them. I’m really looking forward to Finding Dory. She was such a great character in the first film.
These are great movies. I loved Happy Feet. I am so excited for Finding Dory to come out.
Nice list! I’m a huge fan of Ice Age and it’s definitely up there with the best. Most people like me can’t get enough of CG fun movies like these so we tend to look for more.
I had the great pleasure of seeing 30 minutes of Dory ahead of time, and I haven’t ever seen anything like it. Pixar really knows how to tell a story and tug on your heartstrings!
These are all nice selections.
My husband and I actually watched “Happy Feet” on our second date because he knew I liked penguins.
I love all of these movies and I can’t wait for the Finding Dory to hit the theater. I and my wife enjoy the Finding Nemo and we share it to our kiddo too and surely this part two will be awesome too!
I love all of these Disney movies. I am super excited to see Finding Dory. I know it is going to be so cute and fun.
It will be a lot of fun seeing that character return. She was great in Finding Nemo.
Ariel. Period. That’s all. The song “Under the Sea” from that movie is my cell phone ringtone. Not even joking!
These are a great list of movies to watch for sure, I still cannot wait to watch Finding Dory!
I love so many of those movies!! I could watch them over and over…and I have. You are never too old to enjoy a good animated film.
These are all cute movies. I need to watch these again with my niece and nephew. They will enjoy them.
These are some really fun ones. I haven’t seen Happy Feet yet but I bet I’d enjoy it.
I LOVE Ice Age. It’s one of my very favorites!
Ice Age and Shark Tale are two of my favorite family films of all time! Who am I kidding. I love all of these!
I’m so glad you included The Little Mermaid. I love Finding Dory and the other computer animated films, but sometimes old school animation is nice.
Happy Feet is one of my all time favorites. It’s such a cute movie.
