Ultimate Disney Song Bracket - Quarterfinals


Guys, I'm not upset with you. I'm just disappointed.

I believed you'd all do the right thing and keep voting for "Part of Your World" at least until the final four. I was wrong, and now here we are with eight songs remaining and none of them are "Part of Your World." I don't want to be part of this world.

But the bracket must go on, with the regional finals. Voting for this round will be open for 36 hours (rather than the 18 hours of the previous rounds), so vote early and often.

On to the matchups...

Pre-1960 Region


"Heigh-Ho" (from "Snow White")


vs.

"When You Wish Upon a Star" (from "Pinocchio")


I'm legitimately stunned that "Heigh-Ho" has made it this far, but it's much more of a pleasantly stunned. But if we're being honest here, this is where the run ends. "When You Wish Upon a Star" is coming off its "closest" call so far -- an 89-11 destruction of "Once Upon a Dream." I think we've established a new favorite for the entire bracket.




1960-1989 Region


"Kiss the Girl" (from "The Little Mermaid")


vs.

"Under the Sea" (from "the Little Mermaid")


Ugh, whatever... I can't even with you guys...

At least a song from "The Little Mermaid" will advance to the final four. It just won't be the right one.




1990s Region


"A Whole New World" (from "Aladdin")


vs.

"Hakuna Matata" (from "The Lion King")


I've seen multiple tweets from people rooting for "A Whole New World" to win the whole thing and with "Part of Your World" out, I might be on their side now. But "The Lion King" has been a powerhouse in this bracket and it wouldn't be a surprise to see a song from that movie win again.




2000-Pres. Region


"Let It Go" (from "Frozen")


vs.

"Do You Want to Build a Snowman" (from "Frozen")


All of the matchups for "Let It Go" have been closer than expected - though none of them have truly been close. This could be its biggest challenge yet, as it faces another powerhouse song from the same movie.
