Saving Mr. Banks is rated PG-13, although it has been rated "G" in at least one Canadian province. There are some potentially frightening scenes for children, including one where a young child wakes up in the middle of the night and has to stop a parent from doing something rash. Ginty's father is shown under the effects of alcohol several times, and she seems him cough up blood while he is sick. Walt Disney smokes, and there are some mild expletives.
