Disney movies in order of historical setting

(Excludes most of the package films. Some films, eg The Lion King, are impossible to pin down exactly and some, like Aladdin and Treasure Planet, are anachronistic, so these are estimations. A few have been split into 2 if there is more than one time period in the movie, and sequels have been put together.)

  • I see the list is missing a lot of titles and understandably per the note at the end of the article. I find this time line interesting and a lot of time went into figuring these fun facts out. As a Disney fan including trivia is was certainly cool.

    Some easy ones that I thought would have been in the list:
    Mary Poppins is from late 1800’s to early 1900’s,
    Ratatouille I would have thought was set in the 1980’s-2000, and
    Finding Nemo easily in the 1990’s to 2000 call be added.

    I know many of us could help give guesses for the next run of this list. Very cool and thanks for sharing.
