Hey guys. So I found this forum a few weeks ago while working on a personal project of mine, something that I've been inspired to do for several months given how much I enjoy the Adventure Tower lobby music at The Disneyland Resort. That inspiration is The Disneyland Hotel Project. The concept of this project is simple: 1. Decode the playlist for each of The Disneyland Hotel's three towers (Adventure Tower, Frontier Tower, Fantasy Tower) song by song. 2. Download or rip the tracks accordingly, then compile and group them. 3. Create album art and share with the Disney fan community. Pretty simple right? Well, that's what I thought at first. I figured I'd head over on a Saturday, park at the Downtown Disney lot because I certainly wouldn't need more than the three free hours, then head back home a champion. Unfortunately, it didn't work out that way and it really is unfortunate because its generated a lot more work for me. Here's basically how my Saturday went down: I cruised into the Adventure Tower prepared for my easiest playlist capture yet. I came prepared, in that I had recently purchased the soundtrack to The Jungle Book and already knew that at the very least the tower included the track(s) "Overture" and/or "Jungle Beat." Its the very chill instrumental theme from the beginning of the film. I guess having just returned from Hawaii helped my motivation too as I love all things tiki and safari. This goes without saying that I'm obsessed with Trader Sam's. Anyway, my plan was to use both Shazam and Soundhound to capture any tracks I was unfamiliar with. But, as I stated above, it didn't work out that way. A lot of the results from those apps were completely inaccurate, or too generic. "Epilogue," for example, can be one of thousands of song titles. Shazam credited it as being from the soundtrack to I Am Legend, but that clearly wasn't correct. Fortunately some data in the identification led me to the correct track from Disney's film Dinosaur. With a lot of digging around and deciphering from YouTube and my own Disney knowledge, was able to get a list that's maybe 70-75% complete. I was not pleased at all with having any number of incomplete tracks, but time was ticking faster than I anticipated and I would somehow make do. Hoping to have similar "passing grade" luck with the next tower, I headed over to the Frontier Tower. I couldn't pick out a single western track that I heard and lasted maybe 10 minutes there, and then in my frustration headed over to the Fantasy Tower. The whole process should have been much easier than this! I had resolved to simply ask a desk attendant if they had access to a physical list, and after some waiting was told that it was the Imagineers who put together the list to begin with. Fortunately, the Fantasy Tower music is much more recognizable than the Frontier Tower and includes much of the fairytale genre. Shazam was giving me results and could pick up a lot of tracks - stuff that is easily recognizable. The only trick is that Disney loves to have various compilations, rerecordings, and new recordings of classic tracks...and there are dozens of albums they could be hiding on. Its here that I desperately Google searched to see if somebody else had already done the work. [topic=4817]The closest I got was this outdated thread[/topic]. The thread however includes out of date listings. I had been in the tower for roughly an hour when I gave up and started to walk downstairs to the main lobby when I heard "A Cottage in the Woods," which was the first track I heard when I started. My loop was complete, yet the track listing was incomplete. My trip was bittersweet with a lot of bitter. Luckily, last night boosted my confidence tremendously as I took all my notes and started completing my playlists. Between "Capture Saturday" and last night I ordered most of the classic soundtracks (pre-1970 with the exception of The Black Cauldron) and familiarized myself with the tracks. I sat down with my laptop, my lists, iTunes, Shazam, Soundhound, YouTube, and Google and now can say I also have a 70-80% complete playlist for the Fantasy Tower too. With another trip and 1 more night at the laptop, I can quite possibly jump to 90-100% completion of Adventure and Fantasy Towers! So I come here to see if there is any interest out there for what I'm doing? I would definitely love to share my progress and results if there is the interest, and it seems like this is the place to be if I have any trouble identifying and locating tracks. I plan on another trip to the park this weekend to record audio of anything Shazam won't pick up again so I can do some track comparisons with iTunes. Sorry for the gigantic post! This will all be on my blog in the near future.
