    The pre-show loop runs approximately 30 minutes (28:57 on the night I recorded it). The playlist below is the "normal" track listing which can be extended, by including additional songs, on those nights technical difficulties arise. In addition, while I have noted in which songs the pre-show announcements were made based on my recording, this can vary from night to night. All current pre-show announcements are made by a male announcer.

    EDIT: I happened to record the Peace on Earth tag ending last weekend and noticed Safety Announcement #2 was being done by the female narrator again. I don't know why, or how often this happens, since all the announcements were switched to the male announcer sometime in January. The more you pay attention to the audio around WDW, the more weird things you encounter.
