If you were one of the over 10 million people who subscribed to Disney+ on the first day of its launch, then you've probably been endlessly scrolling through the available shows and movies for the past two days. There's a lot of content on the new streaming platform and on the first day, people on Twitter were so overwhelmed with their options, they didn't know what to watch first. We've mostly been talking about things people are most excited about like Lizzie McGuire and Boys Meets WorldBut there are also so many movies on Disney+ that you probably didn't realize are now available to watch anytime.

Here are seven films to put on your Disney+ must-watch list.

Freaky Friday

This 2003 film starring Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis is an absolute classic. When the mother and daughter accidentally switch bodies, they both generally hate the experience and get into all sorts of shenanigans. The 1977 movie it's based on and the 2018 remake, both with the same name, are on Disney+ too. 

Avatar

This 2009 James Cameron film about Pandora was a huge hit when it came out a decade ago. People instantly fell in love with the lead characters played by Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington. You can now satisfy your love for the film and watch it whenever you want on Disney+.

The Game Plan

Dwayne Johnson is seriously one of the best actors in Hollywood, and it's even better that he's part Canadian too. Johnson stars opposite Madison Pettis in this 2007 movie where his character discovers he has a young daughter he had no idea about. 

Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

Lindsay Lohan absolutely slays in Disney films, especially in this 2004 classic. You may not be surprised this film is on Disney+, but you might've forgotten about it in the excitement over all the other content. Lohan's character faces the challenge of having to fight from attention for her family. And if this film wasn't part of your childhood, it can become part of your adulthood thanks to Disney+

10 Things I Hate About You

This 1999 film is such a classic, there are still screenshots from it floating around on Twitter today. It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Julia Stiles, and the late Heath Ledger, and is definitely one of the best rom-coms. Check out a famous quote from the film below. 

The Parent Trap

By now it probably seems like Linsday Lohan is the Disney movie queen and honestly, she kind of is. Lohan plays double duty as a pair of twins in this 1998 classic, and she did such a good job, she had so many kids convinced she actually had a twin. And Disney+ also has the original 1961 film it was based on, too.

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

Even though this 1989 film came out a little before our time, it still holds a place in the heart of many 90s kids. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is a classic movie about a scientist who accidentally shrinks his kids to the size of a bug. And Disney+ also has the two sequels to this movie, Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves and Honey, I Blew Up the Kid.
