Disney Playlists for Your Listening Pleasure

Disney has always appreciated the power of music.

Music is a fundamental component of each land and attraction in the Disney parks. Movies and live theater utilize music to sway our emotions in a way that the spoken word simply cannot do.

Think about your favorite attraction. Now, imagine experiencing that attraction without any music. Can you imagine the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction without the music? Likely not!

“Music gives a soul to the Universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”


I love listening to all kinds of music (okay, maybe not heavy metal), including music from Disney parks, Disney movies, and Broadway shows!

I’ve always loved creating playlists. Remember cassette mix tapes? I used to listen to the radio and wait for my songs to play, then I’d hurry and press the record button on my jambox. Later, I graduated to making CD mixes. My family received so many CD gifts from me over the years!

These days, we can create playlists in different online music platforms. I first created Disney playlists when I started using iTunes. Now, I use Spotify to save my playlists and to discover new music. Spotify is free to use if you don’t mind the ads occasionally playing between songs. If you don’t want any ads, you can subscribe to Spotify’s premium service.

Regardless of which option you prefer, you can enjoy my Disney playlists that I’ve compiled for free! All my playlists (including travel themes, moods, and more) are listed on my Spotify profile.

Disney Parks

You’ll find a playlist for each of the four Walt Disney World parks and one playlist (so far) for Disneyland Resort. I love to listen to these playlists when I’m dreaming about my next trip to Disney or when I’m doing some serious Disney trip planning!

Disney Resorts

I had so much fun finding songs for my playlist inspired by Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.

Disney’s Port Orleans and Riverside Resorts play wonderful jazz and other music. Check out this fun playlist!

Disney Cruises

I love sailing on a Disney cruise! I’ve experienced cruises on each Disney ship, to the Bahamas and the Caribbean. I’ve sailed out of Port Canaveral, Miami, and New Orleans. For themed cruises, I’ve enjoyed Very Merrytime cruises and a Marvel Day at Sea cruise. So of course, I made playlists for various types of Disney cruises!

Disney Entertainment

Disney on Broadway showcases some of my favorite music by incredibly talented performers.

Disney Movie Tunes include the classics as well as newer songs in Disney movies.

Here’s How to Use Spotify…

When you open Spotify, you can create your free account (or upgrade to premium). Then, make sure to click the Follow button on the selected playlist so that the playlist is saved in your menu on the left for easy access each time you open Spotify.

I’ll continue to update these Disney playlists with new music. If you follow the playlists, you’ll automatically have access to any new songs I add. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about how to use Spotify.

Thanks for connecting with me!
