    I spent some time at Typhoon Lagoon this morning/afternoon.

    Right at 9:00 AM, when the park opened, I speed-walked to a speaker location near the extreme left edge of the [post="26530"]Surf Pool[/post] that I had scoped out during a previous visit. A few short minutes later my digital recorder was hooked up and doing its thing.

    I had no clue how long I was going to be stuck there. Two, four, six hours? How ever long it would turn out to be, I had resigned myself to total boredom. Fortunately, a group of about 25 extremely fit Brazilian girls decided to set up camp right next to me, so I had something to keep me occupied. Man, they're making those bikini bottoms awfully small these days! :eek:

    The first song to pass through my recorder was Jimmy Buffett's When Salome Plays the Drum. About 3.5 hours, and 50 Brazilian butt cheeks later, I heard Salome playing her drum again. Phasers on stun! This boy is done!

    Or so I thought...

    As I was walking out of the park, I heard the Beach Boys coming out of a speaker on my left, but it wasn't one of the songs I had recorded earlier. Not more than a dozen feet away, I heard big band music coming out of a speaker on my right. Wait a minute! There sure as heck wasn't any big band out there by the Surf Pool. Confused, I walked a few more feet down the exit path, and all I could hear was steel drums. What the heck was going on?!

    It was time to turn right back around and figure out where this stuff was coming from and why.

    It turns out the Beach Boys are what's playing inside of the gift shop, [post="26531"]Singapore Sal's[/post]. There are two accessable speakers located outside of the shop, including the one on the entrance/exit path.

    In the back of the park, I discoverd that they're playing sea shanties at [post="26532"]Typhoon Tilly's[/post], one of the food and beverage locations. There are accessable speakers near the dining tables. The shanties can also be heard near the Shark Reef entrance.

    When I made it all the way around to the front of the park again, passing up Ketchakiddee Creek, I finally found my big band music. It's playing around [post="26533"]Leaning Palms[/post], which is the other food and beverage location. I believe there is at least one accessable speaker in the area. If not, there is the lone big band speaker on the entrance/exit path.

    Finally, at the [post="26528"]Entrance[/post] to the park, both outside and inside the gates, they're playing steel drums.

    All told, that's five separate area music loops.

    I guess I'll be going back again, and again, and again. Hopefully, the Brazilian girls will be back, too! ;)

    Re: Typhoon Tilly's Area Music

    This one will be interesting to hear. Perhaps it includes some of the tracks I need to complete the Columbia Harbor House area music, or includes music from the Liberty Square area music during the Pirate & Princess party.

    The "multiple posts" are placeholders for what will soon be playlists.

    You're really out on a limb with your comparison, Bill.

    Bill, if you're not interested, don't read, it's that simple.

    So is that the loop that keeps playing, and after Hour Four, it starts all over again, or does it continue?

    It works the same as any other loop. It takes 3 hours, 27 minutes, and 16 seconds to play all 86 songs. The park is open from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM during the summer. If you are there from open to close, you will hear some of the songs as many as four times each. If, for example, The Little Old Lady (From Pasadena) comes on at 9:00:00 AM, it will be back at 12:27:16 PM, 3:54:32 PM, and 7:21:48 PM.

    There is no way for me to know where the loop actually "begins." Hour One, Two, Three, Four is just my way of separating the playlist into something more manageable for identifiying unknown tracks.

    If I were at Typhoon Lagoon very early in the morning, and I heard the steel drums come on outside the entrance at 7:57 AM, and I could assume that the Surf Pool music came on at the exact same moment (it is possible - there is commercial show equipment capable of controlling dozens and even hundreds of loops simultaneously), once I was able to get inside the park, I could note what song was playing at the Surf Pool, and I could extrapolate backward to determine what actually came on at 7:57 AM.

    As it is a "loop," though, it doesn't really matter all that much where it "begins" and "ends."

    For those of us who normally don't collect surf music, will all of the tracks in the playlist be available for purchase?

    Oh, yes, everything is available on CD. You will have to buy some of it through places like the Amazon Marketplace, or on eBay, but it's still very easy to find. Some of the tracks can be downloaded from the iTMS.
