“Here is the world of imagination, hopes, and dreams. In this timeless land of enchantment, the age of chivalry, magic, and make-believe are reborn – and fairy tales come true. Fantasyland is dedicated to the young-in-heart, to those who that when you wish upon a star, your dreams come true.”Walt Disney

I like to believe everybody feels exactly how Steve Martin, an American actor, believes when he says, “I find animated films very touching. They reach an audience that’s hard to get with a live-action film”

Have we not loved our childhood for beautifully animated films, fairytale stories of Peter Pan and folklores from Panchtantra? They define the very stark instances that make us who we are as we grow up. The values and moral education we receive from them are something we hold onto forever. 

Here is a recollection of those memories as we mark down some of the best lessons we received from Disney’s Best Animated Films
