#VoicesFromHome: Dapper Dans Share Disney Magic, Take Requests

Thomas Smith

by , Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

With their happy harmonizing, the Dapper Dans are an iconic part of the Main Street, U.S.A., experience at Disneyland Resort.  Today, in a first-of-its-kind performance, the famed Dapper Dans are using their #VoicesFromHome to share a touch of Disney magic with everyone at home.

From Burbank, California to Houston Texas, the Disneyland Dapper Dans jumped online at home to sing one of their all-time favorite songs “When You Wish Upon A Star.”  The song is just one of many others from a Dapper Dans song list that includes the popular “Grim Grinning Ghosts” and “When I See An Elephant Fly.” 

Vote and let us know what you’d like to hear as the Dapper Dans use their #VoicesFromHome to bring Main Street U.S.A. into your home.  

And be sure to keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for more #DisneyCastLife stories like this as Disney cast members continue to share Disney magic in the future.

  • Brilliant. I too, am crying happy and sad tears. The happy tears come from the beauty of your voices. Missing Disneyland and all the cast after visiting and wanting to be there is one thing, but missing you and not knowing when we can all visit again is where the sadness comes in.
    Thank you and I look forward to the next song.

  • My wife is an Opera singer and has sung as the featured soloist for Symphony Orchestras and in many professional theater productions, but, if you want to see her light up and grin like a little girl, ask her about the time she got to sing the counterpoint to “Lida Rose/Will I Ever Tell You”with the Dapper Dans on Main Street. Thanks for making the Magic happen!

  • I am Crying.. Happy “I miss Disneyland tears”
    . Truly needed this. I always stop to listen to you guys. You are a blessing. Thank you!!

  • i’m not crying your crying.

  • I heard a story from the Disney+ Imagineering series, that after the earthquake of 2011, Disneyland Tokyo had to close it gates. When the gates were opened again, the guest that came in cried happy tears. In a world a Doubts and Fears, I too will cry happy tears when I once again walk in the gates of Disneyland.

  • Tears to my eyes !😊. You ALL need to be on. Disney’s 2nd sing along. !!!! Someone needs to make it happen 🎉😊

  • Bravo! I’m in tears but I can’t stop smiling ❤️

  • Thanks, Guys. I needed that!

  • I cry every time I watch this! Thank you so much for bringing this into our homes when we can’t be there to see you in person!

  • So many wonderful memories, Main Street, Barbershop, family, friends, and acquaintances, though brief, warm and friendly. The spirit of Disney shining today to remind us each and every one to do likewise. Thank you.

  • Mother and son trips to Disney were frequent during my son’s childhood. We danced to “When You Wish Upon A Star” at his wedding. Your rendition was beautiful…and I’ve listened multiple times. Makes my day. Thank you!

  • Absolutely wonderful. I can hardly wait for you guys to perform the next song!

  • Thank you so much for When You Wish Upon a Star. It makes me miss the Park that much more. Please sing the Disney Medley next. My family and I miss the Dapper Dans and Disneyland.

  • Thank you so much for this! I cannot wait to hear more.

  • My family has watched and rewatched the Dapper Dans-Voices from home! Thank you for bringing us some Magic!

  • I really love this, and already shared it once. I would love to hear anything the Dapper Dans would love to sing. They always bring me back to Main Street USA. Missing my happy place right now!

  • I work from home and start out every day listening to this. Can’t wait for the next one!

  • Anyway you guys can sing “Wishes”? We are all wishing that the everyone stays healthy & the parks re-open soon!

  • Please do this with Voices of Liberty from Epcot!!

  • That was amazing. Greetings from Queensland, Australia – stay safe everyone.

  • Thank you for this! What a touch of magic. I’d love to hear the Disney Medley next :).

  • Would love to hear,”On the Front Porch” in 4 part harmony. A favorite!!!

  • Loved it. Thanks for a bit of Disney magic and pixie dust. Can’t wait for the next one!

  • This made me cry. Hard to believe it can bring such emotion in a difficult time. Love this and sending a huge thank you for it!!

  • Haha, got it to work! I accidentally clicked “Grim Grinning Ghosts,” which is fine too, since I am a big Haunted Mansion fan.

    Here’s hoping for getting back to life as we knew it some day and many happy trips to Disney parks for all.

  • This is just wonderful!!

    I agree with Nancy’s choices!!

    Also a little Zippity Do Dah would not hurt.

    Hello to the Dapper Dan in Houston (my neck of the woods/although I got stuck in AZ when this hit)

    Cannot figure out how to vote/will try twitter.

    “Disney Medley” sounds marvelous.

  • Thank you so much played it at hospital where I work and everyone stopped to sing along thanks for helping us nurses through this hard time.

  • Thank you so much, you all have such beautiful voices. Please would you consider adding King of the swingers to your voting list as my 15 month old granddaughter dances to it all the time! We hope to visit Disneyland in Florida again when the earth recovers ❤️❤️❤️

  • This was wonderful!! Thank you sooo much! I needed a little Disney magic. Please do more, any of the songs voted for or any others they sing would be welcome.

  • Thank you so much. I was having such a down day and that was so up lifting. Looking forward to more.

  • Thank you so much for posting your wonderful voices! My daughter will be celebrating her 35th birthday March 30 and all she wanted was to be able to celebrate her big day at the Magic Kingdom. She had to cancel reservations and hope for another time to visit. Would it be possible to sing “Happy Birthday” to Emily? That would make her the happiest on her big day.
    Thank you !
    Her Mom,
    Becky

  • That’s the best thing that has happened to me all week! Thanks for that uplifting song! That’s true Disney magic… and it’s reaching around the world. Greetings from Germany…
    I hope for more inspiring songs… and till then I watch the video and listen to the song over and over…

  • Oh wow! That made me cry! So beautiful. I love the Dapper Dans. Main Street USA certainly wouldn’t be the same without them. I have a trip planned for September and I can’t wait to get back to Walt Disney World. @Thomas Smith, would sure love to see Jim on the piano while we’re all at home waiting this this out. Thank you Dapper Dans!!

  • What a wonderful surprise! Thank you for this. Beautiful, beautiful voices!

  • Amazing, sounded great. What an excellent idea and way to bring some Disney Magic at a very challenging time for everyone!

  • My absolute favorite song is, “Walkin’ Down the Middle of Main Street U.S.A.” I would love, love, love to hear this song!!!

  • Oh my heart <3 please, just sing anything! We love our Dapper Dans, and this brought a happy tear to my eye!

  • I love the Dapper Dans! So good to hear them even if we can’t be live at the park.

  • I loved this and am so looking forward to hearing more. I will appreciate anything you choose to sing!

  • “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” reminds me of my grandma and is my favorite song to hear the Dapper Dans sing!

  • Would love to hear “live the magic” from the 60th celebration <3

  • So homesick for Disneyland and your voices and songs are superb.

  • Just loved this! We make sure to see the Dapper Dans every time we go to Disneyland. They truly make the experience magical!

    I would like to request “A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow” and “Feed the Birds” please. 😊

  • Thank you so much. Enjoyed this very much. Any chance you could get The Voices of Liberty together also?

  • This was so wonderful! As I’m missing Disney now, that was a good reminder of Disney magic.
