Beginning today, Apple Music* has launched the main theme song, “Magic Happens,” as well as a “Magic Happens” playlist full of favorite Disney songs that inspired the new parade at Disneyland park. The playlist features 19 songs, beginning with the high-energy “Magic Happens” song, which was co-composed by singer-songwriter, Todrick Hall. Other favorite tunes are from classic tales, including “Cinderella” and “The Princess and the Frog,” to more recent stories, including “Frozen 2,” “Coco,” “Moana” and more.

For those who don’t already have an Apple Music subscription, eligible new users can sign up for a free three-month trial and enjoy full-length versions of these and other favorite Disney songs, along with the more than 35 official Disney Parks playlists offered on the platform.

The all-new “Magic Happens” parade recently debuted at Disneyland park and quickly became a fan favorite. In case you missed it, check out a virtual viewing of “Magic Happens” here on Disney Parks Blog, and also learn more about creating the catchy music for the parade from Todrick Hall, himself!

Now go ahead and belt it out! Here are the lyrics to the “Magic Happens” theme song to help. Enjoy!

This is the anthem, here’s what you came for
This is the moment magic was made for
Come one, come all…let’s light up the sky now
You feel the magic happening right now
(now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now!)

Calling all dreamers, time to let your mind run free
To believe in make believe, to be who you wanna be
Calling all dreamers, a celebration in the street
And the sights you’re gonna see are far beyond your wildest dreams cuz

You don’t need wings to take flight
Magic don’t stop…at midnight
So hold on tight, enjoy the ride

Cuz you can reach for the stars in broad daylight
Heart, there’s a spark you just can’t fight
When you wish you may and wish you might, then
Magic Happens!

Dreams were made to make come true
Waiting for someone like you
Just a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo and
Magic Happens!

That’s when (that’s when)
Magic (Magic)
Happens (Happens) Woah!
That’s when (that’s when)
Magic (Magic)
Happens (Happens) Woah!

A simple wish, it just takes
A true love’s kiss and spells break
A shooting star to catch your eye and…

You don’t need wings to take flight
Magic don’t stop…at midnight
So hold on tight, enjoy the ride

Cuz you can reach for the stars in broad daylight
Heart, there’s a spark you just can’t fight
When you wish you may and wish you might, then
Magic Happens!

Dreams were made to make come true
Waiting for someone like you
Just a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo and
Magic Happens!

That’s when (that’s when)
Magic (Magic)
Happens (Happens) Woah!
That’s when (that’s when)
Magic (Magic)
Happens (Happens) Woah!

  • I would like to purchase the ENTIRE Magic Happens parade songs. My 2 year old niece loves the one that says “if you just believe.” We watch the Magic Happens parade at bedtime when she spends the night. She watches it to the end and then will go to sleep with no problem. 😴🙂

  • I would love to buy the ENTIRE Magic Happens parade songs, especially the one that says “if you just believe.” My niece who is 2 loves that song. When she spends the night with me, we watch the Magic Happens parade on Youtube before bedtime.

  • So excited you released the first half of the parade! Add my vote to those who need the closing song as well. A full soundtrack during these crazy times would be fantastic and a real Disney wish come true! I cannot wait to see this parade in person!

  • You all got it half right! I think everyone is wanting the ENTIRE parade song to be released including the updated animated film songs for the parade. Thank you for this though! It will hold us over in the meantime.

  • I love the parade and the music! Just bought the Magic Happens song but it doesn’t have the last song of the parade 😢 Please put that song out too! 🙏🏻

  • I love this song! I just bought it, only I’m sad that they don’t have the second song as well from the end of the parade. “Come, come with all your dreams are out there waiting to be chased…” Please add that one as well <3

  • Yay finally you are putting Disneyland music up. Please put other like Fantasmic! 2.0 and Paint the night 🙂
