We’ve got 40+ Ways To Bring Disney Into Your Christmas season! Kick back with some Mickey Mouse hot chocolate and scroll this this list, as we take you through the movies, books, decorations, crafts, baking, ornaments, and clothes you need to have the most Disney Christmas ever!
Disney Christmas Movie Essentials
We’ll start with the essential Disney Christmas movies you need to have in your collection!
We’ve got to start with the Mouse himself. Mickey’s Christmas Carol is the quintessential combination of Mickey and the holiday season.
Nightmare Before Christmas is an amazing holiday crossover that has won the hearts of many Disney fans. While you’ll occasionally find people who don’t love (or haven’t seen) it, these characters command the longest lines at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for a reason.
Growing up, I adored The Muppet Christmas Carol. It’s a bit of a “deep pull” for this list, but the Muppets are a part of the Disney family, and their Christmas Carol is a fantastic film.
The Santa Clause is one of our favorite Christmas movies. It’s an instant classic, led by a great performance from Buzz Lightyear himself, Tim Allen. The sequels aren’t as good as the original, but we make it a point to catch these every holiday season.
Frozen isn’t technically a holiday film, but c’mon. It’s got snow and it’s one of the best movies Disney has produced in recent memory. It’s worth a watch during the holiday season.
Disney Christmas In The Kitchen
Living Locurto has a recipe for Mickey & Minnie Christmas (Oreo) cookies. This recipe is especially great as they’re “no bake” cookies.
Two Sisters Crafting has a recipe for Mickey Mouse Santa Hat cupcakes!
Disney Family has a stellar recipe for really cool Jack Skellington as Sandy Claws cookies!
Ottawa Mommy Club brings Mickey and Minnie Christmas to the “cake ball” trend with this recipe.
Throw On Your Disney Finest
Like any Disney experience, your Disney holiday should come with throwing out your finest pieces of Disney clothing!
Ugly sweaters are a must have for any fun family Christmas. Grab one with Mickey Mouse on it!
Stitch is a fan-favorite for a reason. Bring him into your holiday festivities with this Santa Stitch sweater!
For women looking to bring Minnie into a cozy Christmas outfit, this sweater is the way to go.
Nightmare Before Christmas fans will love this Jack Skellington ugly sweater.
We wouldn’t leave the little ones out. This Santa Mickey pajama set is great for kids to wear as the run down the stairs to their gifts under the tree!
Decorating Your Disney Tree
People love, love, LOVE their Disney ornaments. These things are everywhere, but here are some to consider.
This is a cute one with Chip and Dale dated to 2018 and with the added flare of the “Mouse Ears” everyone loves.
This is a standard set to consider if you’d like a few Disney Christmas classics at a decent price.
This is a great standard option for lovers of
Even the Guardians of the Galaxy are getting in on this holiday season.
I just love this one. It’s another hybrid that combines Cinderella Castle with Mickey Ears. This one just screams “I love Disney parks!” while it hangs on your tree.
Fun With the Family — Holiday Disney Crafts
Over at Honey & Lime, you can get free Disney Christmas coloring pages.
Overstuffed has 7 DIY Mickey ornaments. These are perfect for those looking to save some money and spend some quality holiday time together.
Dolled Up Design has some very cute DIY Minnie and Mickey stockings.
These are a really cute (and cheap) idea from Sand and Snow. All you need is some paper and scissors, and you can put together your own Disney holiday decoration in the form of paper snowflakes.
Deck The Halls — Disney Holiday Decorations
This is a little much, but it’s also a really cool option if you’re into it. It’s a tabletop tree absolutely packed with Disney characters.
Have you heard? WALT LOVED TRAINS! This is a really cute way to bring Disney into the perfect holiday living room. Who doesn’t love a good train?
There are a couple ways to make a Disney holiday wreath, but if you want the maximum amount of Disney flare, you might decide to grab this “Magical” Christmas wreath.
“Disney Village” items are a cool way to theme your surfaces into Disney spaces. This ski chalet scream "Disney Christmas” in red and green glory!
Again, Frozen isn’t a “holiday” movie per se, but this is a beautiful addition to the Disney Village collection.
I like this one for having a sort of classical vibe. Santa has a more classic look, and he’s just sitting with Mickey and Minnie. This has that nice, old, cozy Christmas sort of vibe.
Reading Near The Fire — Disney Holiday Books
More Nightmare Before Christmas! This pop-up book is a new way to experience the holiday classic.
This big, beautiful collection of 18 Disney Holiday tales is a perfect fit for a spot on your shelf.
This is a good companion to the Storybook Collection, and it’s a really fun way to countdown to Christmas!

This is a great collection of Disney Holiday recipes, great for any family that loves holiday treats!
And Everything Else!
We’ve linked to a selection of Disney Christmas cards from Shutterfly.
This is an AWESOME family activity. We love things that bring Disney, the holidays, and the family together.
We close with two Mickey and Minnie stockings. These are a great option if you decide the “DIY” stocking craft isn’t for you.
