    I just need some clarification on Disneyland's Fantasyland Band Organ loop.

    I know it plays at King Arthur's Carousel and Dumbo, but does it also play anywhere else in Fantasyland? I've heard people say it's the loop for all of Fantasyland, but I honestly don't ever remember hearing it outside of those two attractions I mentioned. I don't think I've ever heard any kind of overall loop for DL's Fantasyland, but I could be wrong. All I remember is hearing each attractions' queue loop as you approached...and since they are all pretty close together it does make it seem like there is music going constantly.

    Can anybody clear this up?

    Thanks

    DL's Fantasyland doesn't really have one Area Loop. As you enter the Castly "When you Wish Upon a Star" plays. Then as you approach the Carousel, it's music is heard. Peter Pan's Flight is the easiest to hear queue music outside of the queue but doesn't really go too far. In that general vicinity you're still pretty much hearing the Carousel. The Fantasyland Band Organ is behind Dumbo which is between the Carousel and Storybookland. For as loud as it plays (they say on a quiet day you would be able to hear it a mile away) it's relatively isolated to the area around Dumbo. The Village Haus Restaurant to the right of Dumbo has music which pretty much dominates that area (bathrooms, outdoor dining, Stromboli's Wagon, etc..). Then to the other side: Mr Toad's Queue music only plays on the inside so isn't really audible from the outdoor queue. Alice and the Mad Tea Party music seem to vy for attention on the pathway between the two but it's surprisingly easy to seperate them in their respective queues. I only notice the Storybookland Loop once I round the Lighthouse to the left, before that all I hear is Mad Tea Party. Then as you approch Small World you hear the Clock Ticking and ultimately the Small World Area Loop, but not till you really get close. It's not played from any of the Pathway Speakers as you approach.

    Actually rereading your post, the King Arthur's Carousel and the Fantasyland Band Organ are two seperate Loops. I know that nowadays the Carousel uses a prerecorded track (don't know if perhaps it was created with the Band Organ) but I believe that the Dumbo Band Organ is actually playing.
