Music Mondays: “A Kiss Goodnight”


When the DISNEYLAND accountants questioned why the park spent so much money on nightly fireworks that most guests would likely never miss, Walt Disney would mention that he saw the fireworks as a ‘kiss goodnight’ to his guests that would make them want to return in the future. 



When DISNEYLAND celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2015, it commissioned a new song from Richard Sherman who, as part of the famed Sherman Brothers, wrote many of Disney’s most beloved songs. To honor the occasion, he wrote A Kiss Goodnight-

To the land of imagination,
There’s a wondrous magical door.
No one knows where the door is hidden,
Yet we’ve all been there before.

For within every heart lies a secret
That reveals a mystery.
And the secret is this, 
Just a gentle kiss is the key.

A kiss goodnight
Is the doorway to Dreamland.
A kiss goodnight
Is where memories begin.

Just close your eyes,
And you’ll see where your fantasies dwell.
To your surprise, 
What a fabulous tale they tell.

A kiss goodnight
Is the start of a journey
To deep in your heart,
Where your memories shine.

Oh, the joy and the wonder you feel on a magical flight
Begins with a kiss goodnight.

A kiss goodnight
Is the doorway to Dreamland.
A kiss goodnight
Is where memories begin.

Just close your eyes,
And you’ll see where your fantasies dwell.
To your surprise, 
What a fabulous tale they tell.

A kiss goodnight
Is the start of a journey
To deep in your heart,
Where your memories shine.

Oh, the joy and the wonder you feel on a magical flight
Begins with a kiss goodnight.
It begins with a kiss goodnight!
