The Dapper Dans, Musical Harmony Masters of Disneyland


Disneyland continues their semi-regular series of “Every Role a Starring Role” highlighting different positions throughout the resort. This latest video features the sweet barbershop quartet harmonies of the Dapper Dans, one of Disneyland’s longest running entertainment options.

In this video Jim Campbell shares what its like to bring magic to guests through song:

The Dapper Dans have been performing at Disneyland since 1959. There are also similarly named groups at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando and at Hong Kong Disneyland.

I usually stop and listen for at least song or two whenever they’re performing. One of my favorite ways to soak up a little of the magic. Have you ever seen the Dapper Dans perform? Do you have a favorite song that they sing?

  1. i just joined the Barbershop Harmony Society this past July, but I’ve been a fan of barbershop Harmony for some time. Perhaps some day I’ll have the privilege of singing a tag or two with the Dapper Dans (of course, their baritone would have to take a break). Who knows? After all, it is where dreams come true!

  2. This year at WDW, on our 40th wedding anniversary date, my husband, Jim Weldon
    was able to sing a tag with the Dapper Dans. It made this barbershopper wife’s day
    complete. Ever so gracious and kind they all were! A real Disney memory maker!

  3. In the mid-sixties, my early days in the SPEBSQSA, when we went to Disneyland, it was always fun to step into the Dapper Dans and sing a couple. The guys were in the Society and were competing in their own quartets in the FWD.
