What To Watch on Disney+

As soon as Disney+ was released in the UK, we signed up to it, all seven children are huge Disney fans and I think the fact Mandalorian was showing was a big factor for the boys and my husband!

Trying to find something for all nine of us to watch can be a little tricky, but Disney+ has so much choice, it’s easy to find a  ovie or TV show that will keep everyone happy.

So, if you are already signed up to Disney+ here is what you can watch over the festive season. If you haven’t signed up yet, this HUGE list may help you decide….

Nick is training to be Santa, but is failing miserably. When Nick is about to crumble like a gingerbread cookie from all the pressure, Noelle suggests he take a break and get away to clear his head…but when he doesn’t return, Noelle must find her brother and bring him back in time to save Christmas.
