Disney movies are always reliable at making us smile and laugh and cry. They become instant classics and tell us unique, inspiring, and sometimes irrational stories, but they always offer us a piece of magic. Here’s advice from 15 of the best Disney movies of all time.

1. The Lion King

You can honor someone’s memory by doing something greater than yourself.

2. Beauty and the Beast

Beauty is only skin deep so don’t judge a book by its cover. But read, read a lot.

3. Aladdin

Your background shouldn’t determine your future (& everyone’s life would be better with a friend like Genie).

4. Frozen

Love comes in different forms…and the love between sisters is like nothing else!

Sidenote: don’t agree to marry someone you just met.

8. Toy Story

The unknown scares us and makes us uncomfortable, but conquering that insecurity is what will bring you to great opportunities in life. Teamwork is key and will take you to infinity and beyond. (Cliché, but true.)

9. Mulan

Don’t be afraid to break tradition. Mulan showed everyone that heroes are often formed by breaking the mold and pushing your limits. It also helps to be really good at impersonations.

Honesty is the best policy. Listen to your conscience, aka your gut.

11. Dumbo

12. Alice in Wonderland

Reality is what you make it, and nobody can control your imagination. Also, don’t eat strange foods or drinks.

15. Lilo and Stitch

Family is everything, and sometimes you get to choose who becomes a part of your clan (adoption, marriage, friendship, etc.). In this case, unlikely friendships result in adorable dance moves.
