20 Disney Songs in Spanish That Will Have You Singing Como Niña Again

It’s tough to escape the magic of Disney. Whether you watched on TV, DVD, at the movie theater or even on VHS tape, we all remember singing along to Disney tunes. Songs like “Under The Sea” and “A Whole New World” claimed a big part of our childhood. Chances are if you grew up in the U.S., you haven’t been touched by the magic of these songs in Spanish. Scroll below and thank us later because you’re about to be blown away.

Aladdin: “Un mundo ideal”

Jazmin and Aladdin singing while floating on a magic carpet. My 10-year-old self is wishing a prince would climb up my window and kidnap me.

The Lion King: “Hakuna Matata”

Before yoga, meditation, Buddhism and all the “new era” practices hit us,  there were Timón, Pumbaa and of course future king Simba teaching us about a worry-less life.

Toy Story 3: “Hay un amigo en mí’

Is there anything greater than the voice of Spaniard Javier Fernandez-Peña as Buz in “Toy Story 3”? ¡Olé!

Pocahontas: “Colores en el viento”

We should all listen to this song very carefully. Then maybe, just maybe, the world would be a better place.

Hercules: “De cero a héroe”

For everyone who’s ever felt like they’re worthless, comes the story of the underdog who isn’t really an underdog because he’s really a God. Listen to this tune and be inspired.

The Junge Book: “Quiero ser como tú”

I wanted to have straight hair my entire childhood. Actually, I wanted to have light skin and blue eyes too. Later I discovered being me, in all my uniqueness was pretty awesome. If you can’t relate to the lyrics of “The Jungle Book,” at least the awesome dancing jungle animals will have you shaking your head.

Mary Poppins: “Supercalifragilisticoespialidoso”

One of the biggest challenges of my childhood was trying to sing along to this song. One of the biggest challenges I face now is trying to keep up in Spanish. 

The Little Mermaid: “Bajo del mar”

The second a Latino kid wanted to ditch Sunday misa to join the other kids at a basketball game, mami was right there to remind them there was “nada bueno afuera”. If only she had done it in a voice as tropical as Sebastian the crab.

Beauty And The Beast: “Bella y Bestia son”

The movie’s message on looking beyond the surface and accepting someone despite their exterior went on to become one of the most romantic Disney movies.

Mulan: “Mi Reflejo”

Some of us do remember this song because of Christina Aguilera. She sang the English-language version and months later when the Spanish-language version was released it started popping up on radio stations. Who wouldn’t have a Christina Aguiler song on repeat?

Frozen:“Libre soy”

You better believe the Spanish theme song to “Frozen” was just as popular as the English version.

101 Dalmations: “Cruela de Vil”

If a character from Disney animated films succeeded in implanting terror in children, especially those who loved animals, it was Ms. De Vil, but who could deny her catchy theme song.

Hercules: “No diré que es amor”

If this song had existed at the time of my primer amor, it would have been in repeat mode nonstop. Now, who composes these “children” songs?

Dumbo: “Nunca vi un elefante volar”

Video credit: Ernesto Lagos/ YouTube

A friendly reminder: almost everything is impossible until someone makes it possible. That’s a lesson we learned from Dumbo as kids and from this song.

Tangled: “Mi vida empieza así”

Video credit: Disney Channel LA/ YouTube

Danna Paola voices the Spanish-language version of this “Tangled” theme and reminds us to make the most of our current situation.

Sleeping Beauty: “Eres tú el Príncipe Azul”

Video credit: Disney Junior LA/ YouTube

My first notion of Prince Charming was delivered by Sleeping Beauty’s own singing fella. Never mind as I grew up I ended up kissing many sapos instead.

The Little Mermaid: “Bésala”

Video credit: Qarols7/ YouTube

Sticking to the kissing theme, ¡Ay! The excitement of the first kiss and everything that can go wrong. Nonetheless, this is an iconic tune and dare we say even cuter in español.

Aladdin: “Un amigo fiel”

Video credit: Disney Canta Con Nosotros/ YouTube

We all had two wishes: to have friends for life and to find a magic lamp that granted us many wishes. O por lo menos uno.

Peter Pan: “Volarás, volarás”

Video credit: DisneyMusic 1992/ YouTube

All you needed to be happy when you were a kid was a great imagination. Did you not fly with Peter Pan and Wendy to Neverland?

The Lion King: Ciclo Sin Fin

Video credit: Ultimate Productions/ YouTube

Inevitably listening to this intro will transport us to the wisdom of Rafiki, the baboon and the cycle of life.

❤️ The Very First Latina Disney Princess Might Be Coming To The Big Screen — And This Megastar Could Have A Role In Its Creation

If you’re the kind of gal who grew up admiring Disney Princesses like Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas and Belle, and in your adult years have put your little loved ones onto Moana and Tiana, rejoice, because our very own Latina Princess might soon be accompanying our fave cartoon royalty on the big screen.

Last March, Disney Animated Studios announced four films coming out in the next four years, including “Frozen 2.” There haven’t been any clues on the additional three films, until now.

According to Page Six, one of the films could center on a Latina princess, and Lin-Manuel Miranda might have a role in creating the star.

“He is talking to Disney about a sequel to Moana, but the movie would be about a Latina princess,” Luis Miranda, the Hamilton creator’s dad, told Page Six.

Disney reps didn’t get back to the outlet with more deets, particularly clarifying if the princess will make her appearance in a Moana sequel or if Miranda would be working with the studio for a second time by co-writing the first Latina Princess film.

Miranda has collaborated with the animation studio in the past, working on Moana and composing the music for the film.

While the Latinx community welcomed its very first Disney Princess in 2016, by way of the courageous Elena of Avalor, we have yet to have Latina royalty on the big screen, and girls of color around the country are ecstatic about the prospect.

Since Miranda is allegedly currently only in talks with Disney, it’s doubtful we’ll get a glimpse of the new princess anytime soon — but, really, can we just get a confirmation? We’re ready to celebrate with a marathon of all our fave Disney Princess movies.
