    Randy,

    I was wondering why is the album being held up?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I don?t really know what you mean. The albums haven?t been held up. They?re out and several people have already picked a few copies up.

    If you mean the delay from the street date to the time they appeared on the shelves, I did forewarn people in this post ?




    When the albums make it to the stores is up to the parks.

    But I believe that the albums are available now.

    Randy

    Randy really has no control on what the parks do with the OA's. WDR and the "Disney Parks" are totally separate entities, and if a release date is posted, don't take that as gospel that the parks will stick to that. This is true of retail in general. People have been complaining that the parks have been very lax about when and where they finally release the CD's, but we have to remember that to them, this is not a big deal. There is a general street date, but the CD's are just another line of merch to fill the shelves. They aren't meant to be a release event or anything like that. In fact, it seem some places are waiting for older stock to move first before putting out the new ones. The CD is just like another plush or T-shirt, so they don't make a big deal about a new one being availible. Of course we think differently! :)

    And yes, both the DL and WDW albums are availible now, so there shouldn't be any more issues...unless they manage to sell out or something.

    Well, the tracklist hasn't been posted fully, but Randy posted the new tracks. Basically, the CD is the same as the previous OA (the "Remember the Moments" one), but there are two new tracks, and a few missing ones.

    LOL, yeah...my problem is not looking hard enough, I guess. Sorry, Almandot! :)

    Oh, and can I plead "insanity" like they do in court? I mean Bill can vouch for me...

    I have been trying to find the album on Property and spoke to a woman in mail order who stated that it was now being held at the warehouse and there is no new ship date and she could not let me know when it would be avalible except this system says Late May. If you go anywhere on Property you cant find it.

    Oliveirach is correct. The WDW warehouse has approximately 3,500 copies on hand, with an order for another 3,500 copies already placed, but there are 0 (zero, zip, zilch, nada) available for purchase anywhere on property. No one has an explanation. :mad:

    The original poster in this thread was talking about the DL one I believe which is available still as far as I know.

    But it's really weird to me how this along with the Event Party cd were released and then out of supply at WDW :p It's like they keep shortchanging what the initial interest will be.

    Wow, sorry guys. If that's the case, I don't know what to tell you. People do have the CDs, both Disneyland's and Walt Disney World's, and I've seen posted images of both covers as well as descriptions and critiques of the contents. I wish I had an answer for you, but unfortunately I don't.

    Wow, I am really glad I read this forum one night from the Internet cafe in Disney Quest about a week before the release date. That gave me a heads-up that World of Disney had them out a week early, and I immediately bought one.
    I haven't seen them anywhere else except World of Disney, and have not seen them there from the official release date until I left town last weekend.

    Considering I live in Florida "seasonally", just left, and won't be back until
    the fall, it looks like I would have missed getting the album for awhile if it wasn't for the tips on this board, so thanks for the heads up :)

    This is my co-favorite WDW OA, along with the Happiest Celebration On Earth one.

    That one excelled at blending the "old" and the new, but this one (Four Parks, One World) is my favorite for showcasing the CURRENT state of WDW music, capturing the state of the parks NOW, expanding on the additions made on the "Where Magic Lives" release.

    Epcot in particular is very well done. I enjoy the Seas track, and my faves are China and Mexico, which I kept playing over and over. The China score is gorgeous, and Mexico fun, catchy, and festive. It's great to see the left side of World Showcase get acknowledged ;)

    I know Randy said there would probably be fewer new additions for awhile. And with the 2 disc format and both discs packed with long running times, there couldn't be much added without losing something.

    I would love to see the OA eventually evolve into one disc for each park, which could be sold seperately or as a boxed set featuring all four together.
    (The 2-disc OA format could also remain intact as a "highlights" sort of thing)

    The one disc for each park format would allow even more material for each park, and while it might sound far-fetched, what gave me the idea was actually the DVD boxed set containing the individual DVDs for each park (also sold seperately) as well as a relatively new boxed set of souvenir books for each park (also sold seperately). This just gave me the idea that the marketing people are finally catching on to marketing the seperate identity of each park rather that just focusing on the resort as one thing.

    Just an idea, but I do love the WDW album as is. Congrats to Randy for the new tracks and another excellent release ;)

    The DL cd was in the park on Sunday (I picked up mine) and there were several on the shelf. The woman working there stated it had been selling very well.

    Actually, he didn't say which of the two albums he was inquiring about. His follow up post, where he says he's trying to find it on property (do Disneylanders say "on property?"), that mail order (instead of "DelivEARS") says it's being held up at the warehouse, and that there is no new ship date, all jives with what is happening at WDW.

    I was at WDW Magic Kingdom last Saturday and I asked about the CD and the CM's all the stores looked at me like "i never heard of that disc, are u sure you have the name correct"?!?!?! I was like it was released this month in the first week, and they checked the computer for the list of stores, and found nothing. My dirty luck :(

    I was in World of Disney in Downtown in Disney World on both Sunday 4/20 and Saturday 4/26. I was told by CM's at the information desk in WOD that they were completely out of them and to place an order through Disney Merchandise. By the looks on their faces, I think that had been asked that question a lot. I asked on both days I was there, and I was told the same thing. I also checked in every store that I was in during the week in the parks, resorts, etc. and saw no sign of it. Just as a side note, they were also out of the hardback Pictorial Souvenier books that I wanted to buy on my trip. Just thought you all might like to know.
