Overwhelmed by the hundreds of movies available to stream on Disney Plus? We’ve got you covered with a 90s nostalgia fix.

With the recent launch of Disney Plus, there are even more streaming options than ever before, and we’re not just talking about the ever-growing number of platforms here. Disney’s new service alone has a movie collection so large, it can be almost impossible to figure out what to watch next.

While many viewers are excited to watch their favorite Marvel or Star Wars films again, there are probably just as many that are in the mood for something different. In this era of reboots and remakes, it’s clear that a lot of us just want to take a trip back in time to our childhoods and snuggle up with old favorites. But even trying to come up with a list of old favorites on Disney Plus is difficult at best.

There’s just too much good content to watch, dating all the way back to 1937! So, rather than try to attack the entirety of Disney Plus, let’s narrow things down a bit and take a look at the decade that brought us Beanie Babies, grunge music, The Rachel, and so much more.

In no particular order (because, yes, even this was hard to narrow down), we present our 10 best ’90s movies to watch on Disney Plus.

10. Home Alone

Home Alone is not only a must watch for Disney Plus—it’s also a film that definitely needs to be on everyone’s Christmas viewing list.

What it’s about: Kevin McAllister (Macaulay Culkin) thinks he’s going to have a terrible holiday with his family. His parents won’t let him watch the (fake) ganster movie, Angels with Filthy Souls; his older siblings are constantly picking on him; and the night before catching a plane to France, he’s forced to share a bed with his cousin Fuller, who’s known for wetting it.

Kevin just wishes his whole family would disappear…and that’s exactly what happens: He’s left behind when the rest of his extended family just barely catches their flight to France for a Christmas vacation. As if finding a way to take care of himself while everyone’s away isn’t difficult enough for the eight-year-old, Kevin also has to protect himself and his home from the Wet Bandits, who are robbing empty houses while other wealthy families are away for the holidays.

Why you should stream it on Disney Plus: There’s just something special about Home Alone, from the way that it addresses the old “be careful what you wish for” idiom to the concept that kids could be heroes without having superpowers. All Kevin did to keep his home safe was put his perfectly normal—if, at times, overactive—imagination to good use. And while he certainly hurt the burglars with all of his booby traps, Home Alone somehow managed to keep all of the attacks fun instead of scary or violent.

Disney Plus has announced that it’s going to reboot Kevin’s story, so watching Home Alone (and even Home Alone 2: Lost in New York) on Disney Plus will get you ready for whenever those plans come to fruition.
