As the world becomes ever faster, smarter, digital, and hectic, you might be missing simpler and slower times — and movies are one of the best ways to indulge in nostalgia. We might not all have a DeLorean time machine to bring us back to the past, but watching Tron, Star Wars, The Princess Diaries, or 10 Things I Hate About You can be a soothing trip down memory lane. 

If you’re wondering where you can find these exact throwback movie picks, though, Disney+ has them all — and then some. The streaming service, which recently added The Princess Bride to its roster (with some help from its original stars), has hundreds of movies from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and ’00s that you can watch.
