    Forgive me if this has come up before and I missed it - there were quite a few post I didn't get to read before the old board went down.

    While looking for the new soundtracks out today, I stumbled across the Theme Park Sing-Along on CD!

    At first, I thought it was the same thing I already had, especially since the package had a cassette visible.

    But looking more closely at the packaging, I noticed it said "Sing-Along CD" !!!!

    So, the quest to get Randy's highly acclaimed Theme-Park Sing-Along on CD has finally been realized!!!

    The copyright says "2002" so this obviously came out fairly recently.

    The package includes a 9-track CD (identical to the original Sing Along cassette released a few years back), a book with pictures and lyrics, and a bonus cassette featuring the exact same program as the CD (I guess for people without CD players OR for people who DO have CD players but have tape decks in their car, etc.)

    I was very excited to see this and I would like to thank WDR for releasing it on CD. Now I can finally listen to "Let's All Sing Like The Birdies Sing" in my car!!!

    The tracks:

    "It's A Small World" (newer DL Paris/Disneyland version)
    "Yo-Ho (A Pirates Life For Me)"
    "Grim Grinning Ghosts"
    "Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah"
    "Bear Band Seranade"
    "There's A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow"
    "The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room"
    "Let's All Sing Like The Birdies Sing"
    "Casey Junior"

    Well that explains why this title came up when I was doing a search on Disney CDs the other day on a web site. I can't even remember what site it was -- Amazon, CDnow, or something else but when it said CD instead of cassette I thought for sure it was a mistake. Especially since they didn't have a corresponding picture to show. I'm glad to hear I was wrong. I'll have to pick this one up since I can't find my cassette copy anywhere.

    Thank you, David--we found the CD within the last few months, and I was wondering where the "It's a Small World" track was from! It's just over 7 minutes long, and unfortunately there is no documentation about the sources of the tracks--so this version of "Small World" is from the attraction in both DL Paris and Disneyland??? Michael.

    I've seen the tape around, but never really wanted to buy it . . . now that it is out on CD that makes it interesting. Are the Tracks different from those on the various Offical Albums?

    THANKS!

    The new It's a Small World tracks were recorded for the attraction's Disneyland Paris debut. A decision was then made to install them in Disneyland's attraction as well that same year, in addtion to repainting the facade in multicolor pastel hues similar to that of the Paris and Tokyo Magic Kingdoms.

    Several other features originally designed for the Euro Disney park were incorporated into the other parks that same year. Musical examples include the current Main St. music loops at both DL/WDW and several tracks played at either the entrance loops of both parks and/or at the Space Mountain Concourse in DL such as the Timekeeper theme and the Phantom Manor instrumental version of Grim Grinning Ghosts.

    The new design of Dumbo's Flying Elephants was originally conceived for DLP. However, the original unit being built for Paris was installed at Disneyland after an accident occurred on the attraction at the Anaheim park. A new unit was then constructed and installed in time for the opening of Euro Disney. A third unit was then built for WDW's MK, albiet w/o the water beneath it. I don't know whether or not a fourth unit was built for TDL.

    The design of Disneyland's New Tomorrowland is reminescient of Discoveryland, since they had both been in development since the mid-80's, the most obvious example being the Astro Orbiter (Orbitron) attraction (WDW's attraction is a derivative of this design as well). The audio system installed in the rocket cars on DL's Space Mountain and since used on both Rock'N'Roller Coasters originally debuted at DLP's Space Mountain.

    The Coca-Cola Refreshment Corner on WDW's Main St. was redone as Casey's Corner several years ago ala DLP. The silhouetted swordfights in the village scene of DL's Pirates of the Caribbean were originally designed for DLP's version.

    I have yet to visit DLP, but I'm sure those of you who have may have noticed other features originally designed for the Paris park incorporated into the other MKs. I have never visited TDL either, so maybe those of you who have could tell us whether or not some, if any of these changes have been made there as well.

    I'm sure there are others that I've noticed before but just can't remember right now.
