With many families staying indoors more than ever before, there’s never been a better time to take advantage of the many streaming services available to us. Netflix certainly reigns supreme, but a new addition to the market is already quickly becoming a fan favourite.

A recent report by Digital TV Research revealed that following the global coronavirus pandemic, Disney+ will soon overtake Amazon Prime as the second-biggest streaming service. Ideal for those looking to enjoy a dose of nostalgic fun or to share an action-packed evening with one of their latest superhero releases, it’s no wonder that the streaming service is quickly becoming a top contender for at-home entertainment. 

While there are hundreds of films to choose from on Disney+, only a few have made it to the top of Canadians’ streaming lists. Using search information from Google search data, a recent study by Parkdean Resorts also revealed the most-searched-for Disney films across the globe based on annual searches last year.

According to the study, the top pick among Canadians might surprise you, as more than 861,000 searches for the 1961 classic “101 Dalmatians” appeared across the country last year. Compared to other nations like the US and Australia’s top pick, “Frozen,” and the UK’s favourite, “Avatar,” Canada’s top Disney movie is a delightful throwback choice. 

Along with “101 Dalmations,” the study also revealed Canadians’ top 10 favourite Disney movies based on their annual search queries. Take a look at the full list below, and let us know in the comments if your favourite made the cut.
