Music Mondays: "When You Wish Upon A Star"

If there's one song that is most associated with Disney, it's the classic When You Wish Upon a Star from Walt Disney's masterpiece Pinocchio. Performed by Jiminy Cricket at the beginning of the movie, the song perfectly encapsulates the dreams and magic that people love about Disney.

Written by Leigh Harline and Ned Washington, the song has been recognized as one of the greatest in history. It has become a Christmas standard in Scandinavian countries, where the star is considered to be the star of Bethlehem.

The song is used throughout the Disney empire and is played on a continuous loop as guests walk through Sleeping Beauty Castle- a fitting song for Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom.

When you wish upon a star 
Makes no difference who you are 
Anything your heart desires 
Will come to you 
If your heart is in your dream 
No request is too extreme 
When you wish upon a star 
As dreamers do 
Fate is kind 
She brings to those to love 
The sweet fulfillment of 
Their secret longing 
Like a bolt out of the blue 
Fate steps in and sees you through 
When you wish upon a star 
Your dreams come true
