25 of the Best Musicals on Disney+

There’s something about a good musical that can lift my spirits, and now’s the time I need it! Plus there’s something about a good musical during the holidays.

Classics like Annie, Babes in Toyland, Mary Poppins, and The Sound of Music are from my childhood. 

Newsies was a staple for me in college, plus you get a bonus Christian Bale. You can also get a Broadway Musical for free on TV – Newsies: The Broadway Musical. I watched this live, and I loved it! I still prefer Newsies the movie, but you can watch both and compare.

Musicals to Watch on Disney Plus for Teens and Tweens

I have 5 daughters ranging from ages 15 to 7. I asked them what their favorite Disney Channel musicals were, and the ones they recommend are Camp Rock, Descendants, and Lemonade Mouth. Those are for the older ones who remember Disney Channel stars like Bridgit Mendler and The Jonas Brothers.

There are also new additions like a Disney Plus original – Stargirl – starring Grace VanderWaal. Another great one is High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Season one is over, but Season 2 is supposed to premiere later this year. My family and I even got to visit the set by accident.

Hamilton is obviously a fan favorite, but it may not be kid friendly. You can read my Hamilton Parents Guide to find out whether it’s ok for your kids.

Also, all my girls loved a show called Violetta. It’s in Spanish, but there are subtitles or you can change the audio to a different language. It’s about kids who go to a performing arts school and the music is pretty good. 

For younger kids, mine love Disney movies like Moana and Tangled. The music is incredible, and we also have the soundtracks. Of course, you have fan favorites like Frozen and Frozen 2.

So get ready to find some new favorite musicals on Disney Plus and sing all through the house! What are you currently watching?
