The holiday season is nostalgic for a lot of people. We remember getting up at 6 AM as kids and waking our parents up to see what Santa brought us. While a lot has changed throughout the years, one thing remains the same: The Christmas movies from our childhood will never be beat. Lucky for us, Disney+ Christmas movies will take us right back to our youth. 

Disney+ really surprised us all when they launched, and there were a ton of Christmas movies we totally forgot about.

Netflix is known for its original holiday movies, but Disney+ really comes through with the classics.

These 6 movies below will make you want to cancel all your plans this week, call your friends, and have a marathon. 

The Santa Clause

Rating: 74% on Rotten Tomatoes 

The Santa Clause is a movie that most of us know and love. Starring Tim Allen, it revolves around a divorced dad who has his son for the holidays, and not everything is going to plan. 

When Santa falls off the roof of their house, he puts on the suit and is crowned the next Mr. Clause. The rest of the movie is Tim Allen's character, Scott Calvin, trying to figure out if everything he thought was fake is actually real. 

Disney+ also has The Santa Clause 2 and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause. 

The Ultimate Christmas Present

Rating: 5.9/10 on IMDb

If you were a huge Disney Channel fan as a child, then you most likely will remember this movie. Starring Brenda Song and Hailee Hirsch, The Ultimate Christmas Present is about two young girls who find a weather machine and use it to make a snow day... in Los Angeles. 

However, little did they know they stole the weather machine from Santa Clause himself, and of course, nothing goes right. 

It's a very lighthearted movie from 2000, but if you're in for a cheesy movie, click play on Disney+. 

I'll Be Home for Christmas

Rating: 23% on Rotten Tomatoes

This 1998 film is a classic, and it's partly because teen heartthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas takes the lead. In I'll Be Home for Christmas, his character Jake Wilkinson is attending college far away from home.

He hasn't been back home since his mother died and in order to get him home for the holidays, his father bribes him with a fancy car if he's home by a certain time. 

His girlfriend, played by Jessica Biel, agrees to ride with him all the way to New York. However, it definitely doesn't go to plan. 

Home Alone

Rating: 65% on Rotten Tomatoes

Home Alone can most likely go down as one of the most popular Christmas movies of all time. While it only has a 65% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it's a classic that stretched into three movies with only two starring Macaulay Culkin. 

Home Alone is about an 8-year-old boy who is accidentally left at home over the holidays. Kevin, who is played by Culkin, must protect his home from burglars while his family tries to get home to him as soon as possible.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Rating: 95% on Rotten Tomatoes

As one of Tim Burton's most popular movies, The Nightmare Before Christmas is the perfect movie for those who love Christmas and Halloween equally. 

Jack Skellington, who is the leader of Halloween Town, wants a new tradition. He opens a portal to Christmas Town, something he's never heard of before. However, when he tells his town about the idea, they all hate it. 

It's a great movie to watch if you're looking for something that's not cheesy, and that will keep you interesting the whole way through. 

Miracle on 34th Street

Rating: 59% on Rotten Tomatoes

Starring Matilda Mara Wilson, this remake of the 1947 movie Miracle on 34th Street is definitely a classic. When Santa is fired from a department store during the holidays, the special events director must find a replacement ASAP. 

Every kid believes this new Santa is the real deal, except for one little girl named Susan. The whole movie is surrounded by Santa, who now goes by Kris Kringle, trying to prove to Susan that her wishes will come true.
