"You've Got a Friend in Me" is approximately four minutes and sixteen seconds in Kingdom Hearts III. The piece has a time signature of 4/4, and a tempo of 126 beats per measure.

Instrumentation includes a full string section—violins, violas, cellos, and basses—along with clarinets, oboes, muted trumpets, trombones, piano, flutes, a triangle, and snare drums, and cymbals. A piano and flute duo perform the first and second verse in addition to the bridge, while the third verse replaces the flute with a violin. Snaps are also heard during the second verse of the song.

At its core, this rendition is an instrumental version of "You've Got a Friend in Me" from the original Toy Story movie. The rendition's instrumentation is fairly faithful to the original, replacing an electric guitar and tuba bass line with a plucked double bass and removing the original's hints of guitar, and still retains the relaxed, friendly, and almost nostalgic nature of the original track.
