Scroll below and thank us later because you’re about to be blown away.

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.

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

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?

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”

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”

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”

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”

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”

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

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