    Just so there is documentation in the archives, set forth below is the track list of the EPCOT 25th Anniversary BGM. The loop was used as the entrance BGM for the day, played before the rededication ceremony, and was played throughout the park after Illuminations. My induction recording is up on Rodentsections. C33 made the track listing below.


    Energy (Epcot Entrance Music)
    We've Just Begun to Dream
    Illuminations 25A - We've Just Begun to Dream
    New Horizons
    Tomorrow's Child
    One Little Spark
    The Living Seas Main Theme
    Energy (You Make the World Go 'Round)
    Magic Journeys
    World of Motion - Future City
    It's Fun to Be Free
    Makin' Memories
    Kitchen Kabaret Medley
    Listen to the Land (The Land Exterior Area Music Version)
    Listen to the Land (Attraction Version)
    Splashtacular
    Surprise in the Skies
    Horizons - Space
    Universe of Energy
    Celebrate the Future Hand in Hand

    EDIT: The BGM that plays in the exhibit is different from the tracklist above. Perhaps the content is the same, but the track order is different. While an induction recording does not appear possible, I'll at least try and determine if there is different content between the loops.

    Those Splashtacular tracks were the first thing I heard going to the park on October 1. I was very surprised that they were playing them. Then I heard Space from Horizons, the original Energy entrance track & We've Just Begun To Dream, I was in shock for the next couple of hours. All the fans and the retro music... it was really amazing. I honestly wasn't expecting them to play anything special at all.

    Splashtacular / It's Magical: What came first Epcot or Tokyo, don't know, but I do remember in the 90s looking for that weird robot dinosaur behind the bushes after the show.

    Tokyo's 10th anniversary was in 1993. Epcot's splashtacular is listed as coming out 1993 on one site but I have no idea.

    And I get the feeling they write major show songs with both English and Japanese lyrics too.. But the thing is this show in Tokyo was entirely in english. Song lyrics, character dialogue, everything. So it's not like they made a japanese version and then epcot's was the backup english version.

    The biggest thing that makes me think it was made for tokyo is the fight with the dragon. Fantasmic had just come out the year before and it seems like Tokyo's idea to make a show with mickey fighting the dragon there, and that this was the original intent for the show. But I dunno. :)

    Actually, I really don't know which came first. I always assumed that Tokyo's did, since it seemed like it arrived in early (April) 1993. "Splashtacular", I thought, came out later, and was even playing in 1994. I wonder if the parks collaborated on this, and wrote it intentionally for both. Other than "One Man's Dream", it's the only show I can think of that played TDL and US parks at the same time. Well, maybe "Cinderellabration" in 2005...for about a minute...

    Hello All:

    I was wondering if anyone has compiled a track list for the EPCOT Center Anniversary Exhibit? I have viewed a couple videos, so I can identify some tracks:

    in the following order:

    Magic Journeys (Entrance Area Version)
    Energy (You Make the World Go 'Round)
    One Little Spark

    and at some other point in the loop and also in the following order:

    New Horizons
    Kitchen Kabaret Medley

    Any information that can satisfy my curiousity will be appreciated!

    I can think of one person that may have done it. I'll check and let you know.

    I looked for ways to do a recording, but the speakers are way out of reach.

    Interesting that the music is in a different order there. I don't think there was anything really exclusive played in the loop though.

    01. Energy (Entrance Area Music)
    02. Listen to the Land
    03. Space
    04. It's Fun to Be Free (Soft Shoe / Roaring 20s Medley)
    05. Magic Journeys (Entrance Area Music)
    06. Energy (You Make the World Go 'Round)
    07. One Little Spark
    08. New Horizons
    09. Kitchen Kabaret Medley
    10. Universe of Energy
    11. Makin' Memories
    12. Golden Dreams (Entrance Area Music)
