Everyone has one: a Disney film that's so intertwined with their childhood, even thinking about it makes you feel like you're six years old again. Perhaps you've always said "no worries" to The Lion King. Maybe you've never had a friend like Aladdin. Or, you could've learned that it's better down where it's wetter thanks to The Little Mermaid.

Whether one of the aforementioned flicks is your favourite Mouse House movie — or even if you prefer Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty or Peter Pan — you'll find plenty to get nostalgic over at Dendy Coorparoo's next festival. Yes, with a name like Disney Classics Festival, it's pretty self-explanatory. Also on the bill: The Jungle Book, Lady and the Tramp, The Emperor's New Groove, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

While some of these movies have been remade in live-action or using photorealistic CGI in recent years, this fest — which runs from Saturday, June 26–Sunday, July 11 — is all about the original animated flicks.

And, like all of Dendy Coorparoo's festivals, different movies screen on different dates — and multiple times — so checking out the session listing is the best way to schedule your viewing.
