Orchestrated by McNeely and David Slonaker, McNeely conducted the music which is filled with sweeping melodies and a lot of energy to it. A choir was used later in the week, giving the music that special Disney touch.

Matt Walker (Senior VP of Post Production Music) and Brett Swain (VP of Post Production Music) were also on hand to lend opinion and suggestions. In the back of the booth were music editor Dominic Certo and ProTools Recordist Larry Mah.
