Ultimate Disney Road Trip Playlist for your Disney Vacation
1. “A Whole New World” – “Aladdin” Let yourself embark on a whole new world at Disney. This song can get you in the mood to leave all the stress behind.
2. ” Stranger Like Me” – “Tarzan” This song can remind you that your kids can teach you things too. Be open to seeing things through their eyes.
3. “How Far I’ll Go” – “Moana” How far will you go to live your dream and fulfill your calling? Perfect song for that trip to Port Canaveral for your next Disney Cruise!
4. “Circle Of Life” – “The Lion King” Who doesn’t love the image of Simba learning about the circle of life from his father? What will your kids learn from you?
5. “Kiss The Girl” – “The Little Mermaid” This has got to be a crowd pleaser for all. And if you can sneak a kiss in from your honey than it’s even better.
6. “Once Upon A Dream” – “Sleeping Beauty” This is a total classic Disney song but it has stood up to the test of time. Every trip to Disney reminds me that this life was once a dream.
7. “Under The Sea” – “The Little Mermaid” Another great Disney song for your next Disney Cruise trip or just because you like to sing “We got no troubles. Life is the bubbles.”
8. “Friend Like Me” – “Aladdin” Want your kids to be more friends than just siblings. Play this song and remind them that they will never have a friend like their brother or sister.
9. “Be Our Guest” – “Beauty and the Beast” Polish up your french with this fun, upbeat Disney song. Want a snack? “Try the grey stuff. It’s delicious.”
10. “Hakuna Matata” – “The Lion King” I mean there may be no better anthem for your next Disney vacation. “No worries for the rest of your life”…or at least for the duration of your Disney vacation.
11.” I’ve Got A Dream” – “Tangled” Use this song as a jumping off point to talk about what dreams you had as a kid or what dreams your kids have for when they are adults. Everyone has a dream!
12. “Out There” – “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” Since we will be heading to Disneyland Paris on our next Disney vacation, we are binging on the “Hunchback” movies. This song reminds me that there is a whole wide world out there to explore.
13. “Let it Go” – “Frozen” Ok. Enough time has past so you can listen to this song again without cringing. It really is a fantastic song and has to go on this Disney road trip playlist. Let it all go.
14. “You’re Welcome” – “Moana” Make sure your kids say thank you for this amazing Disney vacation you put together for them.
15. “A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes” – “Cinderella” This song is near and dear to my heart because my grandmother used to hum this song as she cooked or cleaned around the house. I didn’t know what song it was until I heard it at Disney World years later. It still makes me feel all warm and nostalgic.
Here are the best music apps for your car to play all this great music!
16. “You Can Fly! You Can Fly! You Can Fly!” – “Peter Pan” Remind your kids, and yourselves, that you can do anything you want to do…even fly.
17. “Try Everything” – “Zootopia” Yes! Try everything on your Disney vacation and in life. (Can I say this enough?)
18. “What’s My Name” – “Descendants 2” Let Uma get your pulse racing as you sing along to this Disney Channel original song. Find your inner hip hop queen and jam along when you add this to your Disney road trip playlist.
19. “Rotten to the Core” – “Descendants” While none of your kids are rotten to the core (of course), this is a fun song to sing along to and pretend to be bad to the bone.
20. “We Are All In This Together” – “High School Musical” This could be your family Disney vacation theme song because come heck or high water or 90-minute wait time, we are all in this together.
