My grandfather was very dear to me, and he was one of the original Imagineers for Disney parks. I would love to incorporate a Disney song or instrumental as an ode to him for our triumphant walk back up the aisle after our vows. Any ideas?

Ohh I like this! So cute! I am a Disney geek! REALLY, I LOVE Disney. Give me a few to actually THINK about this one and I will so get back to you. Even I was thinking about using Disney songs in my wedding because I am such a Disney lover! I will so get back to you on this one. Let my mind think about this one for a while!

I would use something from the Fantasia (sp?) sound track. I haven’t seen the movie in years, but I remember it had some really great music.

What about the music that was in Cinderella after they got married? I think you’d probably have to play recorded music, because as I recall (I haven’t seen that movie in years) you would need an orchestra with percussion and stuff. I think there are clanging bells or something.
When you wish upon a star.
Can you feel the love tonight?

What about A Whole New World from Aladdin? That seems fitting to have just gotten married!

I love the instrumental version of “Wish Upon a Star” and it’s a classic Disney song. Although not wedding-ish I LOVE Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Da!!

What about “Once Upon a Dream” from “Sleeping Beauty”. Most of the score was based on Tchaikovsky’s “Sleeping Beauty” ballet so it is classical too–it is beautiful!

I love the song Cinderella sings when she wakes up in the more. Umm… A dream is a wish your heart makes. Or the one when she is at the ball, so this is love.

I agree with Albee and also like Once Upon a Dream from Sleeping Beauty. Other suggestions are A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes from Cinderella or When You Wish Upon a Star from Pinnochio.

Have you checked these out?
I didn’t actually find the album I was looking for for you though… a few years ago, when I lived in Southern California and had a regular pass to Disneyland, I was told that (online only) you could buy a ‘Disneyland Park Soundtrack’ – all of the instrumental version/medleys that they play around the park. I can’t seem to find it now though; it could be not for sale anymore. :/

All fabulous suggestions, ladies! I’m actually now thinking of using Once Upon a Dream or Wish Upon a Star as our first dance (I forgot how warm and fuzzy they make you feel!) and maybe Zip-Ee-Di-Doo-Dah as our ceremony exit I’ve been checkin’ out youtube for some refreshing of my memory for these songs, and its nice to be reminded of how magical these movies are. I think my grandfather would be very proud. Thanks for the help, gang!

@daydreamwanderer: Crazy! I’ll ask my grandmother about it. Disney used to send my grandparents lots of goodies over the years since he retired from imagineering. Maybe they threw in a CD amidst the other fun stuff they got.

I-Tunes also has a Disney wedding album. Some of them are just tracks that are more just instrumental or tones down some for wedding style. If that makes sense!

@ ALBee – It wasn’t just based on Stravinsky’s music, it was outright stolen from him, as was his music from “Rite of Spring” that Disney used in Fantasia. (sorry, I’m in grad school for music and we just had a lecture on Disney’s disrespect for international copyrights!)
Still gorgeous music, and what a fairytale start to walk down the aisle to!
