2014 summer family moviesDisney

It's hard to believe that after one of the coldest winters on record, we're finally headed toward the busiest movie season of the year. As favorite "Frozen" character Olaf sings, "Bees'll buzz, kids blow dandelion fuzz, And I'll do whatever snow does In summer." And we cannot wait for the snow (albeit not adorable talking snowmen) to be but a distant memory and for the high season of popcorn flicks and beach trips to properly begin.

This summer promises to be a busy one for movie-going families. There's an impressive mix of superhero flicks, animated adventures, sports dramas, and YA adaptations that should keep even the pickiest of families entertained. So get your calendars ready and start marking the release dates of the following family friendly titles.
