(Music begins with fanfare.)

NARRATOR
And they all lived happily ever after. Each of us has a dream, a heart’s desire. It calls to us. And when we’re brave enough to listen, and bold enough to pursue, that dream will lead us on a journey to discover who we’re meant to be. All we have to do is look inside our hearts and unlock the magic within.

MALE VOCALIST (JORDAN FISHER)
Ready to begin?
Let the wonder take hold.

FEMALE VOCALIST (ANGIE KEILHAU)
Feel it draw you in.
Watch the moment unfold.

BOTH
Spark a dream that we’re meant to follow,
Setting out for a new tomorrow.

MALE VOCALIST
Every step we take
Brings a new hope, a new day.

FEMALE VOCALIST
Every choice we make
Helps us find our own way.

BOTH
Every wish finally put into motion,
Diving in with our hearts wide open.

FEMALE VOCALIST
The story comes alive,

MALE VOCALIST
(When we look inside.)

FEMALE VOCALIST
A new adventure there in your eyes.

MALE VOCALIST
(There in your eyes.)

BOTH
It’s just beginning.
Feel your heart beat faster.
Reach out and find your
Happily ever after!

FEMALE VOCALIST
Find your happily ever after.

(Music shifts to “Down in New Orleans [Prologue]” and a shooting star flies past the castle.)

TIANA
The evening star is shining bright,
So make a wish and hold on tight.
There’s magic in the air tonight,
And anything can happen.

(Music shifts to “When You Wish Upon a Star” fanfare. Music shifts to “Part of Your World.” Music shifts to “Out There.”)

QUASIMODO
Out there, strolling by the Seine.
Taste a morning out there, like ordinary men
Who freely walk about there,
Just one day, and then I swear
I’ll be content with my share.

Won’t resent, won’t despair.
Old and bent, I won’t care.
I’ll have spent one day out there!

(Music shifts to “Touch the Sky.”)

MERIDA
Your destiny lies within you. You just have to be brave enough to see it. And then your journey begins!

I will read every story,
Take hold of my own dream.
Be as strong as the seas are stormy,
And proud as an eagle’s scream.

I will ride, I will fly, 
Chase the wind and touch the sky!
I will fly.
Chase the wind and touch the sky.

CHORUS
(Na na na na,
Na na na na,
La na na na,
Na na na)

MERIDA
Chase the wind and touch the sky!

(Music shifts to “How Far I’ll Go.”)

MOANA
Every turn I take, every trail I track,
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know, where I can not go, where I long to be.

See the light as it shines on the sea? It’s blinding.
But no one knows how deep it goes.
And it seems like it’s calling out to me, so come find me!
And let me know, what’s beyond that line, will I cross that line?

The line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me.
And no one knows, how far it goes.
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me,
One day I’ll know, how far I’ll go!

(Music shifts to Aladdin underscore.)

ALADDIN
Trust me, having a best friend by your side opens up a whole new world of possibilities!

(Music shifts to “Friend Like Me.”)

CHORUS
Oh, whoa…
Oh, my…
Oh, yeah…

(Music shifts to “Trashing the Camp”)

CHORUS
Zabwe dap, zooboo doop, zabwe dap, zooboo doo dap ‘n dee yap.
Zabwe dap, zooboo doop, zabwe dap, zooboo doo ‘n dee dee yoop.
Zabwe dap, zooboo doop, zabwe dap, buh kah, buh kah, buh kah, buh kah!
Dwee yap, dwee yoo.

And when you’re outside, looking in,
Who’s there to open the door?

BASS SOLOIST
That’s what friends are for!

(Music shifts back to “Friend Like Me.”)

CHORUS
Mister Aladdin, sir,
Have a wish or two or three.
I’m on the job, you big nabob,

GENIE
You ain’t never had a friend,
Never had a friend.
You ain’t never had a friend,
Never had a friend.

GENIE AND CHORUS
You ain’t never had a
Friend like me!

GENIE
Ya ha ha, ha ha ha,
You ain’t never had a friend like me!

(Music shifts to “Love Is an Open Door”)

OLAF
Some people are worth melting for. (Sigh.)

FEMALE SOLOIST 1
Say goodbye

FEMALE SOLOIST 2
Say goodbye

To the pain of the past.
We don’t have to feel it anymore.

FEMALE SOLOIST 1
Love is an open door,
Love is an open door.

Love is an open door.

(Music shifts to “You’ll Be in My Heart.”)

MALE SOLOIST
You’ll be in my heart,
No matter what they say.
You’ll be here in my heart,
Always.

(Music fanfare. Music shifts to “I See the Light.”)

RAPUNZEL AND FLYNN RIDER
And at last I see the light,

FLYNN RIDER
And it’s like the fog has lifted.

RAPUNZEL AND FLYNN RIDER
And at last I see the light,

RAPUNZEL
And it’s like the sky is new.

RAPUNZEL AND FLYNN RIDER
And it’s warm and real and bright,
And the world has somehow shifted.
All at once, everything is different,
Now that I see you.

Look inside yourself. You are more than what you have become. Remember who you are. Remember. Remember.

FEMALE SOLOIST
I have often dreamed of a far off place,
Where a hero’s welcome would be waiting for me.

MALE SOLOIST
Where the crowds would cheer
When they see my face.

BOTH
And a voice keeps saying,
“This is where I’m meant to be.”

CHORUS
I will beat the odds,
I can go the distance!
I will face the world,
Fearless, proud, and strong.

I will please the gods,
I can go the distance!
‘Til I find my hero’s welcome,
Right where I belong.

(Music shifts back to “Happily Ever After” theme.)

The losses and all the glories.

We live every day.
Just look up and reach to the sky.

You can fly!

Happily ever after!
