    Just read this at laughingplace.com.

    BGM For the Land Pavilion
    We've been told that starting today, The Land Pavilion at Epcot will have background music instead of the nature sounds that have been a part of it since the Pavilion's re-opening in April.

    Wonder what it will be.

    That would involve going to Epcot during a holiday week.

    Ew .

    I happened to be at Epcot on June 30, and I can confirm there is BGM in the Land pavillion again...all I can say for sure is it's not the old loop that played before the refurbishment. It sounded more orchestral...a friend of mine who heard it yesterday morning said it sounds more like the score to Soarin'...but she also thought it might be an arrangement of 'Listen to the Land,' which would be neat if it's true. But other than that all I can say is that BGM is indeed there again.

    I was just there this past week, and I can also confirm a new loop. It seemed to me like it had a flying theme to go along with Soarin'. These were the tunes that my wife and I could pick out:

    Theme from Pearl Harbor
    Flying Theme form ET
    Themes from Soarin and Soarin Queue Music.

    Hopefully someone else can fill in the blanks. As you might imagine, it was a bit loud in the Land Pavillion this past week. :)

    Hi.Thanks for posting this.Music with a "flying" theme makes sense since the pavilion was redesigned to resemble an airport terminal.Sorry to see the old loop go.

    The Land now revolves around Soarin and Epcot continues to get less unique all the time.

    I really miss the old loop as well, but on the other hand, the new loop sounds pretty cool. I wonder how long it will be until it turns up on the internet?

    ET and Pearl Harbor have *NOTHING* to do with the themes behind the Land: food production and man's cooperation with nature.

    Then again, it fits with the rest of the new pavilion. Because the new food court doesn't fit, either. ::) :-[ ::)

    I definitely agree about the food court. I don't like it at all. Also, I don't like it that when you enter The Land Pavillion now, the CM's standing at the entrance always say, "Soarin' is to the left on the first level." It is as if nothing else in the pavillion matters.

    However, on the bright side of things, Listen to the Land was still fairly busy when I was there last week.

    Sad when Epcot imitates DCA. Not only do they copy on of the attraction but they make the mistake of letting an attraction dictate the theme of the land, instead of the land(pavillion) dictating the theme of the attraction.

    Anything else would've meant spending more money on the attraction, silly. Why change an established attraction to fit a land (like TDS is doing with its version of Tower of Terror) when you came spend far less by changing a pavillion in the name of "refurb for your future enjoyment?"

    I can understand it and still not like it right?

    Actually though it's not necessary. They can easily have Soarin' in the Land pavillion without forcing the rest of the theme to become an airport. The idea of putting Soarin' there is not an unnatural extension of the Land theme (not quite agricultural but "nature" oriented perhaps). So that's fine. But to put it in for those reasons and then say "Well if this is going to work we're gonna have to retheme everything else" is just silly cause now it doesn't work. Yes the pavillion probably needed an update visually. Just seems like they chose the wrong one.

    Has anyone seen a track listing or a recording of the new loop yet?

    I'm really curious as to what is on it.
