Kraft Family Reunion 25th Anniversary Record

In 1980, Kraft Foods ran a "Family Reunion" promotion to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Disneyland. One of their commemorative items was a 12 song vinyl LP record. Six classic Disney films were represented (two songs from each). Snow White was included.

Disneyland Record Label Number: 3516.  Manufactured in 1979.
Ⓒ MCMLXXIX Walt Disney Productions
Disneyland/Vista Records Burbank Calif. 91521
Printed in U.S.A.



Side A
  • Heigh-Ho
  • Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee
  • Bella Notte
  • Oo-De-Lally
  • I'm Late
  • The Unbirthday Song
Side B
  • Whistle While You Work
  • The Phony King Of England
  • You Can Fly! You Can Fly! You Can Fly!
  • Following The Leader
  • He's A Tramp
  • When You Wish Upon A Star




Stapled in the fold of the album is a 12-page full-color "sing-along" book with illustrations and lyrics for each song.




An interesting thing to note is that Whistle While You Work is only a minute and a half in length, much shorter than in the Snow White film. The instrumental middle of the song was cut.




Special thanks to Kevin Hicks for sharing these images and info from his collection.

  1. Gee! That rabbit, on the last illustration, helping Snow with a dustpan is NOT a Disney rabbit, at least not from SW the film! An intruder of some sort! ;-) It is sad in a way to notice that some of the artwork - then & today - is not of the high level of quality that Disney is known for ... even today, even though Consumer Products does a good job, most of the time.

    1. The rabbit certainly looks like he's a 1970s creation; definitely not 1937.
