A Musical History of Walt Disney World (ideas)


That's nifty. I'll have to read all the posts later.



Any of the rides :p They're never released heh.

There are Buzz and Winnie the Pooh instrumentals but no ride audio, splash mountain and HM due to the similarities to Disneyland's, and that's about it.

I'm not sure they'll ever release Pan because the voices are clearly not official voices but it'd be fun to have ;)

Even just instrumentals for Toad and Peter Pan would be cool as the arrangements were so WDW circa 1970s. I have no idea what the music for the Snow White attraction was like.

Hey perhaps narration for 20K can finally be included?!


I'd actually like a show that was in the Disney-MGM Studios, and I know it ain't Disney, but what the hey: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live stage show at the Disney-MGM Studios.

That'd be cool!

You forgot the Turtles show in Disney-MGM Studios!! ;)

Frank; you haven't thought much about that list, have you? ;)

For Adventureland, I'd like to have the Sunshine Tree Terrace music, the Tiki pre-show, and anything from the long-closed restaurant that's just to the right as you enter from the hub.

As for Epcot; a comprehensive track listing of the International Gateway Loop would be great.
Bill, do you have a love for the Adventureland Veranda restaurant loop or are you toying with my penchant for long-closed establishments? 8)

Anyway, as a late convert to worshiping at the feet of the mouse, I did not have the pleasure of visiting what is said to have been a lousy restaurant before it shuttered (I missed it by a couple of years). I have been told the music was a mis-mash of Polynesian tunes with an emphasis on Hawaiian steel guitar. Can anyone confirm? As an added bonus, does anyone know if the Polynesian Village resort music loop doubled for the Veranda loop?
Quite true, regarding the culinary offerings the MK provides; what a wasteland.

The Adventureland Veranda is closed but remains in place with nothing else there; I've seen private events held there in the past, something that looked like a kid's party, and photo sessions with characters during hard ticketed events. It's in a bit of an odd location, immediately to the right after you walk across the bridge, easy to overlook, but I'm still surprised they've not done anything with it since it closed in 1994.

Just the thought of a teriyaki pineapple burger with sweet and sour fries convinces me the decision to close it was a good one. At least Aloha Isle remains. Mmmm; Dole Whip. . .
