I think we all want look for ways to carry the magic of our Disney trips over into our every day lives at home, or to find a way to get ourselves excited for an upcoming trip.  I like to research and learn more about the history of Disney as well as the attractions – sometimes it’s a lot of technical information and other times it’s a lot of fun.  The Great Movie Ride is one of the fun ones.  What better way to add to the anticipation of your trip then watching some or all of the movies you’ll see in the attraction?

I’ve compiled a list of movies from the ride, as well as from the finale, including some that used to be in the finale.  Of course, not all of the movies are appropriate for everyone in your family – I have to admit there are a few I won’t be watching but Chris and I are having fun crossing off the ones we’ve seen!
