We participated in the We Love Disney album review program as a member of One2One Network. We were provided an album to review but all opinions are our own.
Disney music is timeless. It’s the songs we remember listening to when we were little. These are the songs our kids fell in love with. It’s the music we sing along to while strolling through the parks. It’s the music that will live on for generations to come.
The music that we all know an love is about to be introduced to a whole new generation with the release of “We Love Disney”. This collection contains updated and re-imagined versions of your favorite Disney songs. The hottest pop, R&B, rock and country artists put a modern spin on some beloved classics. We had the opportunity to preview a copy of the album. It’s now available in stores and for digital download. Here’s what we thought.

What I loved the most about We Love Disney is that it included beloved classics and newer Disney hits. “The Rainbow Connection” sung on the album by Gwen Stefani makes me wax nostalgic for my childhood days watching “The Muppet Movie” on the big screen.
Each rendition puts a new and different spin on the cover. Turning “Let it Go” into a country song created a totally different song. We have heard that song a million times in our house, but for some reason, that version made us feel like we were hearing it for the first time. The totally rocked-out version of “I Wan’na Be Like You (The Monkey Song)” by Fall Out Boy is my favorite song. Had people not known it was a song from the classic “The Jungle Book”, it could easily be a hit on the radio.
The album culminates with a beautiful rendition of “It’s a Small World” sung by various artists. We could easily see this album be part of our road trip playlist and become a family favorite.
