The following is a list of the animated films that were either entirely produced in-house by Walt Disney Productions prior to 1986, or were produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, formerly known as Walt Disney Feature Animation, after 1986.

For advertising purposes, The Walt Disney Company began to affix numbers to each of the films in the late 1980s. Through this method, they could proclaim the film to be "Disney’s X full-length animated film." When the numbering system was introduced, the group of films included became collectively known as the "Disney Animation Canon." The term "canon" was used to indicate that the films were all of a similar medium and caliber, although they didn't have any other continuity, such as story or characters. Many film historians and animation fans refer to them as Disney "classics" or Disney "features."
