About This Quiz

Disney has produced some of the best films and some of the worst flops of all time. The studio has become such a household name that people can identify its works from a mile away. The word "Disney" is on the lips of nearly every child under the age of 10, and it doesn't look like the studio's reach is going to stop ... ever. 

No matter what age you are, you most likely grew up anticipating new Disney movies and watching all of the classics. No doubt, you had your favorites at different stages of your life, and no doubt, the DVDs and VHS tapes were worn out by the time you moved on to the next one. 

If you're a true Disney fan, you probably know that there are more than 700 Disney films out there (when you include all of the acquisitions Disney made over the years), and of these films, you can probably spot your favorite few. Among others, you may be able to name a few main characters here and there, and there are others you probably wouldn't even recognize as Disney films. 

If you think you're a Disney expert or just a huge fan of the production company, let's see if you have what it takes to complete these 40 Disney movie titles without any hints. 

"Toy Story" (1995) was Disney's first completely computer generated movie. Amazingly, the hit film still holds up today, giving modern audiences the entertainment they deserve. The fourth movie in the franchise was released in 2019.

When it came to parent death, Disney rarely held back – let's take a moment for Bambi's mom. The parent death in "The Lion King" (1994) was one of the most memorable out there, and we are all still a little traumatized by it.

"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937) was Disney's groundbreaking hit and the first full length animated feature ever created and shown in theaters. It changed the way we look at animation and storytelling.

Disney made a lot of live-action films, but hands down the most popular live-action children's film it created was "Mary Poppins" (1964). This film had magic, singing and even a few little animated moments.

A Disney movie with parent death and aliens was a new one to all of us. "Lilo & Stitch" (2002) gave us everything we were looking for: things weren't perfect in her family, but love was all that mattered.

In "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1996), claiming sanctuary meant something, but when the bell ringer meets a beautiful woman, what is he to do? You'll have to watch the movie to find out what happens to Quasimodo.

Sixteen-year-old Ariel wants nothing more than to run away from her father, who rules an undersea kingdom. Sounds like a pretty terrible life she had ... also sounds like she's just the same as every other 16-year-old in the world.

"Beauty and the Beast" (1991) stunned audiences with its amazing visuals and dynamic characters. While there are plenty of plot holes – like, how did no one see a giant castle in the woods? – we still love the film.

If you watch "The Sword in the Stone" (1963) for anything, it should be for the bumbling, fun loving Merlin character. While the movie may not be historically accurate, it's nice to see Disney give the Middle Ages a try.

If you love dogs, Disney helps you get inside of the head of one in this classic from 1961. "101 Dalmatians" is all about domestic dogs trying to escape the clutches of a cruel antagonist who wants to turn them into a coat.

There is nothing like Disney taking you on a 75-minute trip through the darker corners of imagination and exploring what happens when the Queen of Hearts shows up. For 1951, this film stunned audiences with visuals.

If you don't remember "The Emperor's New Groove" (2000), you've probably never seen it. This movie with memorable characters and fun action scenes is sure to delight all audiences. It isn't just about changing, it is about friendship.

The "Finding Nemo" franchise also gave us the fan favorite "Finding Dory" (2016). These two perfect movies show what it's like to live under the ocean and make friends, but they also teach us about the importance of family.

"Monsters, Inc." (2001) gave us a new understanding of the monsters in our closets and under our beds. You see, they had to scare us, because they needed our fear to run their electrical grid ... thank goodness they learn that our laughter is better.

What happens when you have a family of people with superpowers? They save the world, of course. "The Incredibles" (2004) showed us what happens when the government gets involved with special people.

Funny enough, the fox character in "Robin Hood" (1973) doesn't even wear a hood. That's okay – Disney took our favorite story and made all of the characters animals, which is double the fun.

When two unlikely friends find themselves at odds with one another, what is bound to happen? Well, you're going to cry ... that's what. Did you think that all Disney movies have a happy ending?

Disney's "Oliver & Company" (1988) shows what happens when an orphan kitten is set free on the streets. This musical features some of the most interesting songs that the Disney Corporation has ever produced.

If you want to see Emilio Estevez have a mental breakdown and quack at his boss, this is the movie for you. "The Mighty Ducks" (1992) was a sensation for those in the Midwest and around the world.

"Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey" (1993) is simply a movie about two dogs and a cat roaming around in the wild (well, a forest preserve, but it works). Their lips don't move (which is for the best), but they communicate with each other.

In the 1990s, there was nothing like having a main character with a best friend that was half dog, half wolf. "Iron Will" (1994) gave us just that, as well as a contest and some high stakes prize money.

This movie was a little intense for 1989. "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" has a battle scene between a scorpion and an ant, and children are put in some pretty intense situations, but at least they get to eat an oatmeal cream pie.

"Return to Oz" (1985) may have been the most terrifying movie ever created. There were random chopped off heads and desperately frightening creatures and characters – good and bad. It was the stuff nightmares are made of.

In 2016, the darkness of Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter character returned in yet another installment of the "Alice in Wonderland" franchise. This darkness attracts older audiences and frightens little children.

When it comes to anthropomorphizing animals, Disney seems to have it down. The dogs in "Lady and the Tramp" (1955) are fun to watch and cheer on as they take on the worst of the worst (and share spaghetti).

What do you get when you have a boy who refuses to grow up and a jealous little fairy? One of the best Disney movies of all time. "Peter Pan" (1953) showed us what it would be like to have magical powers and play for your entire life.

Though there was a live action version of "The Jungle Book" that came out in the 1990s and another in 2016, most audiences and Disney fans remember the full length animated version that was released in 1967. Walt Disney himself was involved in this version of Rudyard Kipling's tale, although he died during production.

This 2013 derivative of "The Wizard of Oz" gave us some insight into the corruption of government. With a sleight of hand, one man convinces people that he's a wizard and makes one witch really angry.

What do you do when you want to escape Napoleon's crazy reign? Hop on a boat. That's what the Robinson family does in this 1960 film ... but their boat is shipwrecked, and they find themselves living on a deserted island.

Any child who was born before 1990 knows what happens to Old Yeller at the end of this 1957 movie. If you don't know what happens, just make sure to bring an extra box of tissues, because things get crazy.

Disney has always had a way of adapting books and stories to the big screen, and "Treasure Island" (1950) is no exception. The book was written by Robert Louis Stevenson and published in 1883. This film has pirates, a child and a lot of action.

If you found out that you had a long lost twin, do you think you'd try to get your parents back together? While these days people might look down on the fact that parents split children like assets in a divorce, it was totally cool when this movie came out in 1961, with Hayley Mills. The Lindsay Lohan version was released in 1998.

"Inside Out" (2015) is all about the different personality traits that live within us and what happens when those traits become shuffled and get lost. It is a pretty direct metaphor for how depression can affect even young children.

"A Kid in King Arthur's Court" (1995) may hold the title for the weirdest Disney plot ever created ... or at least the most far-fetched plot. It's about a kid who goes back in time and finds himself in the Middle Ages.

"Christopher Robin" (2018) shows us the importance of keeping your childlike wonder with you at all times. While the main character of the movie knows that Pooh is real, he tries very hard to stop others from finding out.

"Born in China" (2016) is a Disney documentary film about what it's like to live in a forest of bamboo. The endangered giant panda is the star as we learn about the ins and outs of living in the wild with these magnificent creatures.

"A Bug's Life" (1998) is all about what happens when an ant colony stops paying off a mob boss of a grasshopper. An ant named Flik is sent to save the colony (as he is the one who accidentally destroyed the food that would have paid off the grasshopper).

When it comes to bonding with your son, Goofy needs a little help. "A Goofy Movie" (1995) is all about what happens when a son is too cool to hang out with his dad, but they have to go on a fishing trip anyway.

It took over two years to film this nature documentary about lions that live in the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The film doesn't just follow lions; it also records the lives of cheetahs.

The 1990s had loads of films about deadbeat dads ignoring their children. "Angels in the Outfield" (1994) is one of these stories. Our young hero prays that the Angels win, so his dad will hang out with him more. Definitely a sad premise.
