At the Gala,[4][5] or The Gala Song,[6] is a song from The Best Night Ever, and a sound-alike for Stephen Sondheim's "Ever After" and the title song from the musical Into the Woods.

Production and re-use

Two months before the episode, Daniel Ingram revealed in an interview that his favorite song had not aired yet and was an "epic" song with 20-person choir and a solo part for every pony.[7] The 20-person choir was directed by Monique Creber, the mother of Michelle Creber (voice of Apple Bloom), and the choir parts were recorded at Bryan Adams' Warehouse Studio in Vancouver.[8]

The song has been released as a sing-a-long on the DVD My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Season One Disc 4. Music from this song is used on the Hub Network's Royal Wedding site's Main Menu as well as in their games Rarity's Bridal Boutique and DJ Pinkie Pie. As with the Hush Now Lullaby and You Got to Share, You Got to Care, the MP3 file used by the DJ game classifies the music as belonging to the blues genre.[9] The song is also included in the My Little Pony Live Show.

It is the first track on the Songs of Friendship and Magic soundtrack album, under the title At the Gala Song. It also serves as the fourth track of side B on the vinyl album Magical Friendship Tour, as well as the ninth track of the My Little Pony 2015 Convention Collection. In the album version of the song, Twilight's line "I can't believe we're finally here!", etc. has been re-recorded.


All the main characters dancing.

Twilight Sparkle: I can't believe we're finally here. With all that we've imagined, the reality of this night is sure to make this... The Best Night Ever!
[Twilight Sparkle]

At the Gala
At the Gala
In the garden
I'm going to see them all
All the creatures
I'll befriend them at the Gala
At the Gala
All the birdies
And the critters
They will love me big and small
We'll become good friends forever
Right here at the Gala!
All our dreams will come true
Right here at the Gala
At the Gala
At the Gala (It's amazing)
I will sell them (Better hurry)
All my appletastic treats (Yummy yummy)
Hungry ponies (They'll be snacking)
They will buy them (Bring your money)
Caramel apples, apple sweets (Gimme some)
And I'll earn a lot of money
for the Apple family!
All our dreams and our hopes from now until hereafter
All that we've been wishing for will happen at the Gala
At the Gala
At the Gala
All the royals
They will meet fair Rarity
They will see I'm just as regal at the Gala
At the Gala
I will find him
My Prince Charming
And how gallant he will be
He will treat me like a lady
Tonight at the Gala!
This is what we've waited for to have the best night ever
Each of us will live our dreams
Tonight at the Gala
At the Gala
[Rainbow Dash]
Been dreamin'
I've been waitin'
To fly with those great ponies
The Wonderbolts, their daring tricks
Spinning 'round and having kicks
Perform for crowds of thousands
They'll shower us with diamonds
The Wonderbolts will see me right here at the Gala!
All we've longed for
All we've dreamed
Our happy ever after
Finally will all come true
Right here at the Grand Gala
At the Gala
[Pinkie Pie]
I am here at the Grand Gala
For it is the best party
But the one thing it was missing was a pony named Pinkie
For I am the best at parties, all the ponies will agree
Ponies playing
Ponies dancing
With me at the Grand Gala!
Happiness and laughter at the Gala
At the Gala
[Twilight Sparkle]
At the Gala (At the Gala)
With the Princess (With the Princess)
Is where I'm going to be (She will be)
We will talk all about magic and what I've learned and seen (She will see)
It is going to be so special
As she takes time just for me (This will be the best night ever!)
Into the Gala we must go
We're ready now, we're all aglow
Into the Gala, let's go in and have the best night ever
Into the Gala, now's the time
We're ready and we look divine!
