50 Easy Disney Ukulele Songs

Everyone loves Disney songs, don’t they? They’re the perfect combination of heartfelt emotion and whimsy. From old-school cool Snow White to the instantly classic Frozen, Disney movies always have the perfect tune for bringing you up when you’re feeling down.

And that’s what makes Disney a fantastic partner for the ukulele. Ukes have that playful sense of fun as well as that sweet, charming sound we know and love in Disney. So, here are some easy Disney ukulele songs to bring a little cheer to the world.


50 Easy Disney Ukulele Songs

1 How Far I’ll Go

The sound of the islands…

Any list of Disney ukulele songs has to include this modern hit. From the 2016 movie Moana, “How Far I’ll Go” is a stirring, soulful tune about a brave young girl finding her true path. And what’s more, that girl comes from Polynesia, the spiritual home of the ukulele.

There are six chords used in this song. And good news. They’re all extremely straightforward to play. The strumming pattern is simple, too, with just a couple of basic tempo changes.

Island vibes…

And to get that sound of Hawaii, you’ll need a uke made right there on one of the islands. This Lanikai ukulele is a fabulous option. With a stunning mahogany body and gentle nylon strings, it brings the gorgeous, tropical sound that this song needs. 

Just lie back, relax, and let the music transport you to beautiful Kauna ‘Oa beach. Preferably with a Mai Tai, of course.

2 I Wanna Be Like You

Monkeying around…

Time for a faster beat now. This up-tempo number from The Jungle Book has a real kick to it. Add a touch of jazz to your repertoire with this swinging sound.

There are seven chords in this song, but could easily be played with six if you don’t fancy trying that slightly trickier Dm7. The strumming pattern is quick, but don’t worry. It’s also fairly simple. It only contains one or two quick changes, making it a great Disney song for ukulele beginners who are looking to level up.

Pick me up

As we all know, fast strumming can be pretty tough on the fingertips. That’s where an awesome pick comes in handy. These leather picks by Lohanu are a great choice. Their soft material avoids creating the harsh sound that some plastics picks can produce.

3 Kiss the Girl

Pucker up…

Love is in the air with this ditty from 1989’s The Little Mermaid. Originally sung by a neurotic crab, “Kiss the girl” is ideal for players looking to bring a touch of romance to their life. Hey, it worked for Ariel.

You only need to know four chords for this song. They are F, G, G7, and everyone’s favorite easy chord, C. The strumming is pretty painless, too, using a basic up-down pattern. If you’re just starting on your ukulele journey, then this could be a fantastic song, to begin with. It is certainly one of the easiest Disney songs to play on the ukulele.

Beginner’s luck

If you are a newcomer to the world’s coolest instrument, you’ll need a bit of help with some of the basics. A ukulele chords poster like this one is a helpful way to give your brain a nudge when you haven’t quite remembered all the finger positions yet. Bright and colorful, it’s big enough that all it takes is a glance to see the chord you need.

4 The Bare Necessities

Bare your soul…

Another song from The Jungle Book. This iconic track is one of the most well-loved Disney songs around. It’s an upbeat little tune and one that’s a whole lot of fun to play. As a result, it’s a fun Disney ukulele song to play.

This one has a fairly fast strumming pattern. But, it’s a steady rhythm, with no difficult surprises. It has seven chords, so there’s a bit to remember, but it shouldn’t be too taxing. Plus, most of those chords are 7ths, which are usually fairly uncomplicated.

Keep the tune

It’s easy to slip out of tune when playing the ukulele. A bum note can make even a happy little Disney song sound bad. To avoid that, every ukulele player needs an accurate tuner.

This Snark SN6X Clip-On Tuner is practically perfect in every way. It sits unobtrusively on the end of the instrument and is highly accurate to boot. And best of all, it won’t break the bank.

5 Can You Feel the Love Tonight?

And finally…

We couldn’t end a list of easy Disney ukulele songs without including one from The Lion King. After all, it’s been one of the most popular Disney movies ever since its release back in 1994. And the songs are the main reason for that.

“Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” became an instant classic. It’s two basic progressions of just six chords repeated for each verse and chorus, so it’s pretty simple to remember. 

Want to make it harder?

You can include extra chords, too. And it sounds awesome when it is played with a fingerpicking style. Learn the basics first, then up your game by complicating things a bit.

Do it by the book…

This song, and more, can be found right here in this Disney songbook. Containing a whopping 50 songs, it’s suitable for any level and includes tunes from each Disney generation. There’s something for everyone.
