I like them all but if I had to choose I would go for Robert and Richard Sherman.They worked on many films not just Disney films like Chitty chitty Bang Bang

Whoever did tarzan!

Pretty sure that was Phil Collins.

I definitely go for the Shermans. 'Feed The Birds' must be the most poignant Disney tune ever.

The Sherman Brothers

Alan Menken; The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast have two of the best Disney soundtracks of all time.

The Sherman Brothers.

When someone else can come up with some truly iconic tunes such as "it's a small world", Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow, The Enchanted Tiki Room and all of Mary Poppins, let me know.

Agreed!
