PureDWTS Season 20, Week 5 – Disney Week Song Predictions 2.0

And Disney week is upon us once again 🙂 Since so many of us (myself included) are chomping at the bit to start speculating about what we might hear, I thought we’d resurrect the season 18 Disney week song prediction post to start the discussion!

First, a little bit of intel: allegedly, there have been some issues with song clearance, AGAIN – which is no surprise, considering there were clearance issues with some of the season 18 Disney week songs (“Be Our Guest” got approved in the nick of time; “Hakuna Matata”, however, did not) and Disney is notorious for closely guarding their copyrights.  Knowing that – I would not be at all surprised if some of the season 18 Disney week songs got reused.  Disappointing? Maybe. Avoidable? Doubt it.  Also, knowing this show’s penchant for reusing songs, I would not be surprised to see if some other Disney songs used before on other seasons of the show crop up again. So to start the predicting off, here’s a recap of the songs we saw during the last Disney week, and songs we’ve seen on the show before – then I’ll share my Disney week wishlist, and you guys can share yours 🙂

Songs used in season 18’s Disney Week:

“Friend Like Me” from Aladdin  (Drew & Cheryl’s quickstep – also used as Shawn & Mark’s quickstep in season 8)

“Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid (Candace & Mark’s samba)

“I Wan’na Be Like You” from The Jungle Book (Meryl & Maks’ samba – also used as Jack & Cheryl’s samba trio in season 17)

“So This is Love” from Cinderella (Amy & Derek’s waltz – also used as Sabrina & Louis’ waltz in season 15)

“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from Mary Poppins (Charlie & Sharna’s jazz)

“Cruella De Vil” from 101 Dalmations (NeNe & Tony’s foxtrot)
