Top 5 Disney Sing-Along Movies

Frozen joined the ranks of the best Disney sing-along movies, in the tradition of Rocky Horror Picture ShowSound of Music, and even “Once More with Feeling,” the Buffy the Vampire Slayer all-singing episode. If you’ve never attended a sing-along movie it is exactly what you’re picturing. The entire audience joins in singing the songs with the movie characters. Sometimes they even say the lines along with them.

The weekend haul for Frozen was over $9 million, allowing the animated musical to take second place at the box office for the weekend. The soundtrack for Frozen is wonderful, with “Let It Go,” sung by the character Elsa, being the proverbial cherry on top.

The Frozen sing-along got me thinking about other Disney sing-along movies that would be perfect for belting the best tunes, and just plain having fun. Here are my top 5 Disney sing-along movies. (Below the video. Enjoy!)


The Little Mermaid

Not only was The Little Mermaid the first animated feature in recent history to take the Disney musicals to a Broadway level, but also has particularly memorable and catchy songs. The Little Mermaid won two Oscars and two Golden Globes for original score and for the song “Under the Sea,” easily the most memorable song.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast won not only Oscars and Golden Globes for the score and the original song “Beauty and the Beast,” it also took home the Golden Globe trophy for Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical. The music from Beauty and the Beast is also Broadway peformance-worthy, which is why it landed on stage on the Great White Way. You may not know all the words to my favorite song, “Belle,” but I defy you to find anyone on this planet who doesn’t know the first few measures of “Be Our Guest,” thanks to the movie and all of the commercials that have used that song as a jingle.

The Lion King

Here’s another Disney animated movie that includes a song that nearly the entire world knows–“Hakuna Matata.” Once that song gets in your head it’s nearly impossible to get it out. The Lion King won Oscars and Golden Globes for the score and the original song “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.” Another memorable song, “Circle of Life,” also works well for sing-alongs, especially for people looking to really belt one out.

Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins is one of my all-time, favorite movie musicals. The movie won five Oscars, including Best Score and Original Song, “Chim Chim Cher-ee.” Nearly every song in this film is so well-known that you do not have to be an avid fan to sing-along. From “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” to “Spoonful of Sugar” to “Let’s Go Fly a Kite,” all of them are fun and memorable.

Peter Pan

I used to have a 45 record, and accompanying booklet, that contained all the songs from Peter Pan. I played it over and over, so I am very biased in choosing this movie musical for this list. Regardless, Peter Pan is full of beautiful, memorable songs that go well with group sing-alongs. The most memorable song may be “Never Smile at a Crocodile.” Hopefully audiences would overlook the political incorrectness of “What Makes a Red Man Red,” because as a song (don’t kill me) it has a great beat.

    You know what my favorite is? The Jungle Book. A lot of the other Disney movies seem very “musical” musical to me, like “Oklahoma” musical. But the Jungle Book always seemed like very straight-ahead pop music, and now it’s forty years later so it seems very classic. I still find myself singing “I wanna Be Like You” and “The Bear Necessities.”
