What are some of the movies which would be good for your children to see before going to WDW (so they better understand rides or characters they will see walking around?) to enhance their experience?

My kids are 6 and 8 - We watch movies and enjoy them.

 

Toy Story

Finding Nemo

I don't think  anything is a must see. We don't watch a lot of television here and the kids haven't seen many of the Disney Movies.

Of course they still know who the characters are through books and toys.

 I agree with this. My DD is 2 and doesn't watch tv. However, there isn't a Disney character she can't name, including Figment and other obscure characters. Between all her Disney toys and books, her collection is bigger than the list of every Disney animation ever made!

There is a video/DVD out that is a Sing-A-Long through Disneyland.  It has a group of kids singing classic Disney tunes as they go through the park/on the rides.   I know you are going to World, but Magic Kinddom and Disneyland share lots of the same big rides.  I made my kids/nieces watch all summer long before we took off in August.  It really got us pumped to get to the park!  Have fun!  We have to sit Disney out this year :(   Stupid Economy!

 the sing a longs are awesome......the one mentioned here is in disneyland - but gives a good overview of a disney park.

they also have a campling disney sing a long one and a beach one and one that is just the animal kingdom and a hallowen one too........they are super cute and show a lot of the parks.

If you have Netflix look for the Disney parks shows they have on there. You can also YouTube the different rides.

As far as movies go we love all the Disney movies. Well most of them anyway.
