Music Monday: Make Your (Running) Dreams Come True

Ready to race like a princess! (Photo by Laura Doss)


We may be adults now (whether we like it or not), but our favorite Disney characters will always hold a special place in our hearts. Whether it was waking up to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings, singing along to The Lion King soundtrack or re-watching Toy Story until we’d memorized every line, our animated childhood friends always gave us an extra boost of excitement, and we're not ashamed to say they still tug at our heart strings. I'm headed off to the land where dreams come true this weekend to race my fifth half-marathon, the Disney Wine and Dine through Disney World! To channel that childhood energy, I've added these top Disney tunes to my race-day playlist. Download them yourself and enjoy a blast of nostalgia - and maybe a little fairy dust.

Now you tell us: What are some of your favorite Disney songs?
