  • This is the first duet sung by a Disney Princess and Prince, the second would be "Once Upon a Dream" from Sleeping Beauty, and the third would be "A Whole New World" from Aladdin.
  • The original concept for this song and a deleted song, "Dancing on a Cloud" was for Cinderella and Prince Charming to, seemingly, be dancing in the clouds, lost in each others eyes. This was changed to the current concept, since it added to the realism.
