Our topic this week: Top 10 Songs/Music in the Disney Parks!

Some songs are stuck in your head all day. Some you don’t even realize are playing all around you. This week our intrepid panel of Disney parents have compiled our Top 10 musical experiences in the Disney parks.

With the holidays swirling all around us, we’re only 8 people strong this week – but it’s a mighty 8!

We came up with over 35 different musical pieces. We had 18 in the Magic Kingdom, 8 at Disneyland/California Adventure, 4 each in Epcot and Hollywood Studios and 2 in Animal Kingdom.

The nominees are songs in rides, background music and some are entire shows. You will be AMAZED at the ONLY song on the list to be nominated on EVERY ballot!

What made our Top 10? Let’s find out!

Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me)

Before Rise of the Resistance showed up, Pirates of the Caribbean was the most immersive attraction at the parks. It’s still one of the very best and the soundtrack matches it!


Some heartbreakers didn’t make the list like the Electric Light Parade, Illuminations, Harambe drums, Let it Go or the new Galaxy’s Edge soundtrack. But they just couldn’t crack the top 10!


What song do you love in the parks? Is Small World still stuck in your head now? Share your thoughts (or anger, if it IS still stuck in your head) in the comments below or on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

Thanks for reading and always remember – DADventure is out there!

Cheers,
