Dapper Dans Sing Special Spooky Songs for Halloween Time at Disneyland Park

posted on October 21st, 2011 by Shannon Swanson, Public Relations Manager, Disneyland Resort

Jack Skellington may have taken over the Haunted Mansion and turned it into Haunted Mansion Holiday but you can still hear “Grim Grinning Ghosts (The Screaming Song)” in its entirety on Main Street, U.S.A. The not-so-scary but very Dapper Dans sing a special set during Halloween Time at Disneyland park including this creepy classic created by Disney Legends X Atencio and Buddy Baker.

Other songs with spirit in the set include: “Candy Crony Baby (Coney Island Baby),” “This Is Halloween,” “Main Street Trick or Treat (Sidewalks of New York),” “Cruella De Ville,” “Let’s Go Trick or Treating (Let Me Call You Sweetheart),” “Way Down Upon the Lovely Graveyard (Way Down Upon the Suwannee River),” “Good Ol’ Halloween Time (Good Ol’ Summer Time).”

What’s your favorite spooky song?

The best Disney song performed by the best theme park singers in front of my favorite attraction. It doesn’t get much better than that!

WOW, that might just beat the original from the ride. I don’t usually stop and watch the Dans, but I will next time for sure. Impressive guys.

My husband and I were at Disneyland this past weekend and got to hear the Dapper Dans sing just outside the Firehouse. We really enjoyed their performance!
