“A Whole New World” by Brad Kane & Lea Salonga (Aladdin)

When I think of Disney, I can’t help but think of this Aladdin classic. “A Whole New World” features vocal interplay between the titular Aladdin and his love interest Jasmine while on a magic carpet ride.

There are different ways of playing this song, but generally, you will need to be able to play at least six chords to do it right, which can make it a bit of a challenge.

The good news is that the song is a ballad and is therefore quite slow. This makes chord changes easier to execute.

“Let It Go” by Idina Menzel (Frozen) With Tabs

This Frozen earworm spread like wildfire upon the release of the film in 2013, and even I’d heard it long before ever seeing the movie!

You only need four chords to play “Let It Go,” but if you want to be able to follow along with all the changes, you’ll need to pick up a few more.

Either way, I can almost certainly promise that you’ll have an easier time learning to play this song than singing it. That’s a whole other matter.

“How Far I’ll Go” by Auli’i Cravalho (Moana)

You’ll remember this tune from Moana where the titular character feels the call to the ocean, despite her father’s wishes.

As with all songs, there are easier and harder ways to play this, but you can play most of “How Far I’ll Go” with just five or six chords.

The song is perfect for the ukulele, given its references to water, sea, island, and so on.

“Kiss The Girl” by Samuel Wright (The Little Mermaid)

The Little Mermaid is classic Disney with some unforgettable songs. “Kiss The Girl” is a slower, easy song with just four chords.

This is yet another song that sounds perfect on the ukulele because of its themes. If you don’t know island strumming technique, it’s good to learn, as it works perfectly for this song.

Check out the video tutorial for a great, simple version.

“You’re Welcome” by Dwayne Johnson (Moana)

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson performs “You’re Welcome” in the unforgettable Moana, and as it turns out, he may not be half bad as a vocalist.

You can play most of the song with just four chords, although you might need to pick up a few more for the intro and verses.

For the most part, though, this is a simple pop song (almost like The Animals’ “House of the Rising Sun”). Refer to the video for a great play-through.

“Part Of Your World” by Jodi Benson (The Little Mermaid)

“Part Of Your World” is another memorable number from The Little Mermaid.

Learning to play it might prove a bit of a project, mainly because the song has a lot of chord changes (usually one change per bar).

If you stick with it, it will be worth the effort though!

“Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride” by Mark Keali’i Ho’omalu (Lilo & Stitch)

Another perfect tune for the ukulele, “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride” only requires four simple chords to play.

The video below is more of a play-through than a tutorial, but if you already know your ukulele basics, this song shouldn’t prove much of a challenge. You should be able to start playing along with it in no time at all.

“I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” by Jason Weaver (The Lion King)

The Lion King is known for its upbeat, impossibly catchy tunes, and “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” is no exception.

Although this is an upbeat song, many of the chords last for multiple measures, making the changes a little easier to get through.

My tip would be to start slow, and gradually build up your speed (a proven method for beginner practice).

“Un Poco Loco” by Anthony Gonzalez & Gale Garcia Bernal (Coco) – One Of The Best Disney Ukulele Chords

For the most part, “Un Poco Loco” is just three chords, making it a simplistic song. There is a key change, though, so that means having to learn a few extra chords.

You should be able to get a simple arrangement of “Un Poco Loco” up and running without too much trouble, but for an extra challenge, try learning the video version.

“Ma Belle Evangeline” by Jim Cummings (The Princess and the Frog)

If you’re looking for a nice, slow number to get started with, “Ma Belle Evangeline” is a good tune to try. But fair warning – despite it being a mid-tempo song, it has a lot of chord changes.

If you’re trying the tab version, then be sure to work on that finicky transition from C to G#7 to G7. That’s probably the trickiest part overall, and once you get a hang of that, you should be off to the races.

“Not In Nottingham” by Roger Miller (Robin Hood)

Who doesn’t love the classic Robin Hood?

“Not In Nottingham,” fundamentally, is an easy song. It’s basically three chords with two variations.

But if you want to develop your picking and strumming technique, you should try the video version too.

“Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” by Kristen Bell, Agatha Lee Monn & Katie Lopez (Frozen)

With simple chords (just five) and a simple strumming pattern, “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” is perfect for the beginner. Besides, it’s a really fun song!

The Frozen soundtrack is quite irresistible, this song included.

“Can You Feel The Love Tonight” by Joseph Williams (The Lion King)

Elton John’s brilliantly written “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” is the song that immortalized The Lion King. John’s contributions to the movie are quite noteworthy to say the least.

This is basically a slow-paced ballad, but it does feature a lot of chords (partly because of the modulation), so stay patient with it as you’re working through it.

The video version shows you how to play the melody, which can also be a lot of fun.

“Baby Mine” by Betty Noyes (Dumbo)

This song from Dumbo acts as the perfect lullaby, so if you’re a parent with young children and you play a bit of uke, this is a good one to add to your repertoire.

The video tutorial shows you three different ways you can play “Baby Mine.” It’s worth learning all three because it’s great practice!

“Remember Me” by Gael Garcia Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Anthony Gonzalez & Ana Ofelia Murguia (Coco)

“Remember Me” is an expertly written ballad from Coco.

But don’t let its slow tempo deceive you, there are several interesting chord changes in this song, and they may take a few tries to get right.

The video tutorial that follows explains it all quite nicely.

“Circle Of Life” by Carmen Twillie & Lebo M. (The Lion King)

Disney songs ukulele chords

“Circle Of Life” is a great, dramatic, heartfelt song for helping you develop a steady strum. Most of the chords aren’t that difficult, so that allows you to focus on your strumming hand technique. As well, the chord changes tend to happen slowly. This also helps.

“Strangers Like Me” by Phil Collins (Tarzan)

If you’d like to play along with Phil Collins’ original “Strangers Like Me,” it would be a good idea to invest in a capo. That said, you can get the basic structure and practice it without.

This is an upbeat song, so if the chord changes prove a challenge, slow it down and work it up to speed before trying to play along.

“You’ve Got A Friend In Me” by Randy Newman (Toy Story)

Randy Newman is a songwriting genius, and his brilliance is on full display in “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” from Toy Story.

This song has a bit of a jazzy flavor to it, which means it’s not exactly beginner friendly. But if you feel comfortable with strumming a variety of chords already, this one should not prove too much a challenge.

“Colors Of The Wind” by Vanessa Williams (Pocahontas)

“Colors Of The Wind” from Pocahontas is a song about the beauty and majesty of the earth.

There are quite a few chords to this song, but if you’re determined to learn it, you should be able to pick it up.

“When You Wish Upon A Star” by Cliff Edwards & Eddie Carroll (Pinocchio)

“When You Wish Upon A Star” from Pinocchio is a classic, beautiful, jazzy tune. It’s got quite a few chord changes, though, so if you’re not used to changing chords every half measure or so, be patient with yourself as you attempt to figure this one out.

The video tutorial below is quite masterful in its delivery.

“Hakuna Matata” by Nathan Lane, Ernie Sabella, Jason Weaver & Joseph Williams (The Lion King)

If you’re going to be learning tunes from The Lion King anyway, you may as well give the fun, happy go lucky, and upbeat “Hakuna Matata” a try.

Although you will need six chords to play this song, fortunately, they’re all quite simple. Just watch out for the fast tempo, and you should be fine.

“Love Is An Open Door” by Kristen Bell & Santino Fontana (Frozen)

The whimsical “Love Is An Open Door” is catchy and fun. But because of the modulation, it can be a tricky one to pick up. Basically, it means being able to play a lot of chords and feeling comfortable switching between them.

“The Bare Necessities” by Phil Harris, Bruce Reitherman & Sebastian Cabot (The Jungle Book)

“The Bare Necessities” is an irresistible pop song with jazzy icing.

For the most part, it’s not that hard, but there are some fast chord changes, so watch out for those.

As always, practice slowly, and gradually bring it up to speed.

“Go The Distance” by Roger Bart (Hercules)

“Go The Distance” is a staple from Disney’s 1997 animated film Hercules. It’s an inspirational, heroic sounding tune that you can learn to play with just five chords.

The video version is a little on the upbeat side, and it’s okay to start this one off slow, as it’s meant to be an emotional tune.

“Someday My Prince Will Come” by Adriana Caselotti (Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs)

“Someday My Prince Will Come” is all about how Snow White wishes to be reunited with her true love and is from the Disney classic Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.

This is one of those songs that can be played quite simply or adapted to more challenging versions.

I recommend starting off with learning the chords, of course, but the video version includes the chords and melody, and is quite breathtaking. Something to aspire to, no doubt.

“Under The Sea” by Samuel E. Wright (The Little Mermaid) – Easy Disney Ukulele Song Chords

To me, “Under The Sea” is a must-have for your repertoire. It’s catchy, clever, easy to sing along to, and a lot of fun to play.

The chords to this song are quite easy, but if you follow the strumming patterns in the video, you might find yourself working out the kinks for a while.

For a bit of instant gratification, though, you could always learn just the chorus.

“A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes” by Ilene Woods (Cinderella)

There are dozens of great Disney songs that are easy to learn for beginners, but we simply couldn’t conclude this list without mentioning the 1950 classic Cinderella.

“A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes” is a breathtaking tune with jazzy chords. For that reason, it might take a while to learn, but I promise it’s worth it. That also makes it the perfect song to end this list with.

Check out the video version for inspiration.
