About This Quiz

Be our guest! We want to know if you really sing along to Disney songs or if you're a lip-sync artist!

Do you know classics like “When You Wish Upon a Star?” Can you “Let It Go” with the best of them? Will you be able to rise to the challenge with a few songs from some of the less popular animated films like “Zero to Hero?” Do you really know Disney songs or do you just think you know what they are saying? This quiz will distinguish Disney experts from Disney wannabes.

Disney might be known as the “House of Mouse,” but from Mickey Mouse’s very first appearance in Steamboat Willie, music has been a part of their films. Steamboat Willie revolutionized animated features by adding synchronized sound, using a click track. This put it above the other animated features, such as Dinner Time (released by Paul Terry), which had sound but was frequently off in the synchronization. The Disney brothers had little experience with music, but they incorporated the Disney Film Recording Company, Limited in 1929, although most of Disney’s music was licensed to other companies. By 1949, with the release of the Cinderella soundtrack, Disney began making its way into mainstream music. It continues today with the Disney Music Group (founded in 1956).
