But out of the array of songs put forth by brilliant minds like Elton John, Alan Menken, and Phil Collins, there are some that really stand the test of time, or stand-alone as some of the most romantic Disney songs to date. Some could even be considered the best option for a Disney Wedding Song. So, without further ado, here’s our list of the top 5 Disney love songs!

Romantic Disney Song #5: “Love,” Robin Hood (1973)

With rumors of a live-action reboot surrounding the original Disney-style telling of Robin Hood and his band of merry men, we couldn’t turn a deaf ear to the song, “Love” which highlights Robin’s strong feelings for Lady Marian. Penned by George Bruns and Floyd Huddleston, the song was actually vocalized by Huddleston’s wife.

Romantic Disney Song #4: “A Whole New World,” Aladdin (1992)

Easily one of the more recognized songs on this list, “A Whole New World,” trascends its debut film, Aladdin. As do many Disney love songs, such as “Beauty and the Beast,” sung by Angela Lansbury, “A Whole New World” screams Disney. Written by Tim Rice and performed by Brad Kane and Lea Salonga, this epic Disney anthem is the epitome of romance.

Romantic Disney Song #3: “Beauty and the Beast,” Beauty and the Beast (1991)

Much like “A Whole New World,” “Beauty and the Beast,” a featured track from the 1991 film of the same name, is an epic tale that encapsulates the changing of hearts. While Lansbury belts out the gorgeous tune, which was written by Howard Ashman and Alen Menken, Belle and the Beast finally turn the corner to love, making it a perfect song for Valentine’s Day or that special first dance after saying, “I do.”

Romantic Disney Song #2: “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” The Lion King (1994)

Finding a song more iconic than this Elton John classic will be a tough task, although we do have one opinion that slightly beats out this amazing tune. Accompanied by other fabulous hits, and much like other songs on this list, “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” also expands far beyond its feature film, becoming as a cemented reminder of Disney overall.

Romantic Disney Song #1: “I See the Light,” Tangled (2010)

Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi in the same song? Yes, please! That’s exactly what we got in 2010, when Rapunzel and Flynn Rider finally turned the corner to love on that tiny boat during the lantern festival. The song, also featured at Walt Disney World in Magic Kingdom’s nighttime spectacular “Happily Ever After,” is all about falling in love and learning that life has way more to offer when you find that perfect someone to spend it with!
