I like a lot of them, Lion King and Toy Story are probably my favorite animated ones. The best movie they made was Cool Runnings. Haven't seen Finding Nemo yet but I want to see it. Never heard of Fern Gully.

Cool Runnings is a good one. Was there a Disney tie-in with Tron? I liked the animation on Beauty and the Beast and Fantasia 2000: The flamingos with the yo-yo still has me laughing!
When I was in college, the only cinema in town (3 screens!) was showing Lion King and Angles in the Outfield as a double feature. I went and so did several other people and their children. We all sat through Lion King (yes, it was good) and sat through Angles also. I won't give away the ending, but everyone in the theater was applauding, screaming and I think there was even a high-five! As we were walking out, some people waiting to see Lion King asked if we really were applauding the movie. Yes, the ending was that good.

Good grief. "Cool Runnings" and "The Black Hole"????
I am old enough to remember "old Disney." That is not a knock against the more recent Disney fare, much of which is fantatsic, i.e., "Beauty and the Beast," "Toy Story" and "TS 2."
But the apex of "old Disney" and my favorite: "Mary Poppins." This film was a star-making turn for Julie Andrews, who won the Best Actress Oscar(R) for the role. And the supporting performances by Dick Van Dyke, and the wonderful Brit actor who played the father Mr. Banks (his name escapes me, but he was also in "Bednobs & Broomsticks) and others were memorable. Recall also the fusion of animation and live action in "Mary Poppins." The music was also wonderful, winning additional Oscars(R).
