    Hey, guys!

    Has anyone ever heard the song, ?Join the Party?? It?s composed by Gordon Goodwin and was used for Tokyo Disneyland?s 20th Anniversary. It was the opener for Mickey?s Gift of Dreams (as heard on the 20th Anniversary BEST ALBUM). It?s a great tune but most of the words are in Japanese. Some of the words are-

    Join the party,
    A birthday party
    A celebration for twenty years of fun!
    ??????
    ??????
    At Tokyo Disneyland!
    At TOKYO DISNEYLAND!!

    Does anyone know if there is another version or if it has been used for WDW or DL? Thanks!

    Have a great day,
    -Rick

    "Join the Party" is awesome. I love it.
    Besides the stage show, I think it work well as a parade theme song.

    I don't think it's been used in any of the other parks yet, but I agree, it's a nice song.

    I do know that it was used during Tokyo Disneyland's Countdown Parade 2004, but I can't remember if the lyrics were in English or Japanese.

    Another good song is "Thank You All From Tokyo Disneyland" The lyrics are in Japanese, but the melody, and harmonies sound great. It's probably the best sounding the Japanese "Kids of the Kingdom" or whatever they're called have ever sounded.

    Hi WishesFan,

    I'd love to get you a copy, however, it was never released on CD. I was able to listen to the music for the parade by watching my old video tapes. I wish there was a release. :(
