    So can anyone who's visited give us some details? I've been told a few things and I have lots of questions:

    1)Apparently there's a new version of Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow playing in the Main St. Loop. What an inspired idea! Though main St. if obviously very nostalgic, it represents a time when the US was looking forward, on the cusp of many new developments. Does anyone know anything more about the loop? I'm assuming that it uses a lot of the now standard Main St loops from DLP, DL, and MK. Is there by chance a day and evening loop?

    2)What plays outside the park, at the Main Entrance or on that long approach pathway?

    3)Is there area music for Fantasyland? I assume that the Carousel provides a good deal of it? Were we all right in assuming that the reason DL's carousel music was recently redone is because new music was written for HKDL? What about unique areas like Fantasy Garden's? Seems this little area is too well planned and too pretty to just edit together a bunch of exising soundtrack cuts. It really seems like it could use a new loop.

    4)Were any familiar pieces heard in Adventurland? It seems so much like Animal Kingdom in some respects especially with the heavier influence of Lion King and Tarzan, I wonder if there might be areas that use DAK music? Is the music around Tarzan's Treehouse the same as what DL uses?

    5) I've been told that TL uses the loop from WDW, but am unsure whether it actually is the WDW version or the nearly identical DL version which has the Monorail song in there. What's the music like on Space Mountain? They have an onboard Soundtrack too right? Anything like ours? Any music in the queue?

    I guess that's it for right now....

    Does anyone know when their official CD is coming out? Track listing? I'd LOVE to hear the original song, "Join the Magic" from "Disney On Parade".

    Have a great day,

    Off the top of my head...

    I don't believe GBBT plays on the Main St. loop. There are a couple of places it plays "near" Main Street:
    - inside the Corner Cafe, which has a ragtime-y piano-y sort of loop, and
    - along the Fantasyland end of the parade route, which has a separate loop from that of the rest of Fantasyland (not really on Main Street at all, but that "zone" borders the Castle end of the hub)
    I didn't hear it in the Main Street-proper loop, though. Didn't hear any difference between day and evening. Best I could tell, it was a mix of things from the existing loops, as you describe.

    Same stuff at both of those locations--tunes from the "classic" animated films. They do cut out every so often around the Main Entrance/fountain area for a small musical fountain show.

    The Carousel is a lot of it (and it is a one-r Carousel there, unlike the others). I'll be honest, I didn't pay enough attention/have enough time to see if it's a new carousel loop or not. Other loops in Fantasyland...Pooh area has one, Clopin's Festival of Foods has one which it shares with the adjacent bathrooms, there is one along the end of the parade route (as I mentioned above)...that's all I remember right now.

    Tarzan's Treehouse music is identical to DL, as far as I could tell, including the homage to the Swisskapolka in the campsite area. I really don't remember a lot of music in Adventureland at all, now that I think about it. There's a small 'streetmosphere' parade that uses the Jammin' Jungle music from DAK.

    I never heard the Monorail Song, which doesn't mean it was there or not, just that it never was playing when I was in Tomorrowland listening. Uhh...Space Mountain...for some reason, I'm blanking on what was there. Sorry.

    I didn't really have enough time to properly "geek out" over the music, so I know I didn't answer very many questions very well...hope this helps at least a little bit. Anyone else, please chime in!
