Show stop:Edit

Walt Disney: "To all who come to this happy place - Welcome!"
Welcome to our family time
Welcome to our brotherly time
(Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay)
We're happy giving and taking to the friends we're making
There's nothing we won't do
Welcome to our family time
(You've got a friend in me, You've got a friend in me)
Welcome to our happy to be time
This is our festival you know and best of all
We're here to share it all
Remembering good times together
With someone dear to your heart
Finding love, planning a future
Telling stories and laughing with friends
Precious moments you'll never forget
This has to be the most beautiful the most peaceful place
I've ever been to
(Can you feel the love tonight?)
It's nothing like I've ever seen before
Welcome to our family time
(And at last I see the light)
Welcome to our brotherly time
We're happy giving and taking to the friends we're making
There's nothing we won't do
Welcome to our family time
(For the first time in forever, Nothing's in my way!)
Welcome to our happy to be time
This is our festival you know and best of all
We're here to share it
We're here to share it
We're here to share it
We're here to share it all!
