The best music in Walt Disney World and where to hear it

Not only is Walt Disney World full of your favourite characters and rides to keep you screaming or entertained there is also wonderful music to hear wherever you go. The music becomes a part of your holiday as much as the rides and if you ever hear the music when you’re not in WDW you’re instantly transported back. Some of my favourite music isn't even in a ride, and below I'm listing some of the best music in Walt Disney World, and where you can hear it.


The ambience music in Epcot is brilliant. The Hubby and I sing it (or hum it) all the time when we're at home and it makes us smile every time. Walking around Epcot, near the fountains, and hearing that music brightens my day. It brings back memories of previous visits, it makes me remember how Hubby and I laugh together at home, and best of all when I'm hearing it for real it means I'm in Epcot! But that’s not the only brilliant music to be heard in Epcot - we’re just getting started.

Journey into Imagination with Figment

The song played in the Journey into Imagination ride transports me back to when my boys were very young. Both of them know all the words to the song and have for many years. They always sing along when we go on the ride and it helps me remember when they were babies and loved that little purple dragon. I will be so sad if they ever get rid of Journey into Imagination because it's become a wonderful, magical place for me - it captures the feelings I had when my boys were young.

Journey into Imagination in Epcot, Walt Disney World has some of the best music.

Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros

For years now the boat ride in Mexico has been a place my boys come alive. The song, sung in part by Donald Duck, is one they sing along to and get very animated when doing so. Even now, with a 9 year old and a 14 year old, both my boys sing along. I think the Three Caballeros is their favourite song from Walt Disney World, and it’s one we have on an album we downloaded because we love the Walt Disney World music so much!

Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.

Pablo Casals


I loved the old music on the Soarin’ ride and I’m hoping they’ve included it in the updated version. Whenever we're listening to our favourite Disney music album Four Parks, One World, and the Soarin' music comes on it's like a video starts playing in my mind and I remember the entire ride. Flying over the sea, smelling oranges as you fly over the groves, it's amazing.

British Revolution

One of my favourite forms of evening entertainment, British Revolution play music live in the UK pavilion. The best bit though is that if you're of a certain age you'll know all the songs and can sing along, and even dance (!) while enjoying the wonderful fish and chips from the Yorkshire Fish Shop.

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.

Magic Kingdom Good Morning Show

Just before the park opens Mickey and the gang arrive on the train but not before the people of Main Street put on a show just for you. They sing good morning and dance and wave while you smile at them all. It’s a brilliant way to start the day and it never fails to make me smile.

Haunted Mansion

The music in the Haunted Mansion is brilliant, and it's another one my boys enjoy singing along to. Stepping onto that ride the music starts and my boys immediately smile, yell "yay!", and start singing. It's an amazing feeling to see your children enjoy the music as well as the ride, especially when they're both at that teenage/tweenage stages. I love the song and always look forward to seeing the singing heads towards the end of the ride.

Hollywood Studios - Fantasmic!

Just before we went on holiday a few months ago I heard the music for Fantasmic and that video in my head started playing again. If you've ever seen Fantasmic you'll know what I mean when I say I saw Mickey dancing and waving his arms around (all in my head) and remembered every part of the show as the music continued. If you have never seen Fantasmic you really should - it is one of the best entertainment shows in Walt Disney World!
