Cuddle Up with Disney This Weekend

As the temperature falls and wintery evenings come upon us, leaving the dorm after nightfall seems like an impossible task. Take shelter in the confines of your dorm and discover an underappreciated cuddling resource: the Children & Family Movies section of Netflix. While you will have to scroll through the newest flicks (nothing good came to Disney Channel after you were a child, of course), you will eventually find the perfect blast from the past for your night. Grab a cuddle buddy and walk down memory lane with these ten classic Disney picks.

Aristocats 

This one is truly a childhood classic, and nothing says cuddling quite like baby cats.

Dumbo

If you are not a cat person, you can get the cuteness factor of baby animals with Dumbo. Few things in life are as sweet as a mother elephant giving her baby a bath.

The Emperor’s New Groove

What is funnier than an egocentric llama? Sit down for a night of laughs with this hysterical comedy.

High School Musical

This movie may change the mood of your night when you abandon cuddling in favor of dancing. If you are not ready to embrace your inner Troy and Gabriella, you can belt out the lyrics from bed instead. High School Musical 2 is also available if you crave more vocal exercise. We'd recommend subbing out a romantic partner for your roommate on this one.

Lilo & Stitch 

“Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.” Can you think of a better line for cuddling? Your heart will be as warm and cozy as your bed during this adorable movie.

Air Bud

Need a break from the gym? Abandon the Plex and live vicariously through the original Air Bud. (Just be aware that watching this athletic golden retriever may make you feel inadequate.)

Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade 

If you did not grow up watching Recess after school, did you really grow up at all? Although this show was essential for learning the hierarchy of the playground, it is as funny today as it was back in the day.

Robin Hood 

This Disney movie makes it impossible to imagine Robin Hood as anything other than a red-haired fox.

The Fox and the Hound 

Nothing is more heartwarming than an interspecies friendship. This movie is perfect for a night spent snuggling with your best friend.

These and many more cuddle-worthy movies are all available on the Children & Family Movies section of Netflix. Instead of braving the cold this weekend, curl up in bed with popcorn and your favorite childhood films.
