  • and as an added note, this was the song from Hong Kong Disneyland’s Happily Ever After Celebration. It is the same song obviously it will be tweaked a bit and composed different than an Asian pop version but just from hearing the preview the parks blog dropped last week you can hear a lot of the same lyrics.
