-The main title and finale/Bippity Boppity Boo [Cinderella]...the main theme...I recall for a good reason. Within the film, they're less utilised than the other examples, they're used for the part where the song goes frantic at the very end and it's fun to listen to the difference between that and later use.
Yes, those are all great, and they are also used when Cinderella is crying in the garden and the fairy godmother appears, and when she's reminiscing about her time at the ball after midnight.

-While not exactly the same since the chorus sounds different to the one used throughout the 50s, Bambi kickstarted the whole thing with Love is a Song/Little April Showers to great effect, and is just as memorable for it.
OMG YES!!!!! Bambi's choral music is I think also used throughout the whole film, it's one of the reasons I love it.
Hm, for one of my things, I'm going to say some things I think people noticed before, but oh well...the way Cinderella and the mice have some peaceful moments in the morning before the stepsisters get up, and the way the pumpkin scared and almost attacked the animals in "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!", and the way the magic swirls and melts and rains down around Cinderella in her transformation while the magic on her arms and the halo around her head float upward. The way the Duke rushes to put the slipper on her, then slows down as it fits her perfectly, and it shines rays of light just as the wedding bells dissolve in, so you can barely see it, but it's there.
When Ariel huffs and vibrates her lips just like Max does, it is for me her best moment and the one where I really thought she was funny and I really liked her.
I particularly like when Ariel steps into the light for the first time after she's gotten legs. It's when Eric sees her for the first time in something other than tarp. I don't know why and it's really short.. but I've always loved it.
Yup me too!
Cody sleeping under his clothes in The Rescuers Down Under and his mom waking him up and he gets up so fast and skips breakfast to take care of the eagle.
How Belle exploring the Prince's room, and then seeing the Prince in the end, are some of the best moments to me. I mean, here we actually get to see and wonder about who this guy was. If only we had known more about him than he's kind deep down? Perhaps here are the clues, like books torn. The most magical part of the film for me is exploring the West Wing. Hm, Cinderella's prince was probably supposed to be mysterious too.
Beauty and the Beast was one of my favourite films and the things I specifically liked were:
1. The colors and overall look. It looked very filmish, and had a certain magical, authentic look.
It is unfortunate, because I agree with you the film looked better before, but the filmakers truthfully always intended the film to have brighter colors, they didn't know how the film would look when it wasn't on their CAPS computers where they colored it. So they have made it look more how they wanted.
I will admit they should make a verison available that has how the colors were back when they first made it and mistakenly made it darker than they wanted.
Also, the other things you mentioned, they should be fixed back to normal, that's true, but you can watch almost all those original things if you select the original theatrical version.
