Blizzard Beach Music and "Forever Kiosks"


Hello all,

This is my first post to the forum--I just became a member tonight after peeking at some of the forum's discussions during the past couple of weeks.

I worked as a Lifeguard Host in the Fall of 1995 at Blizzard Beach, and am trying to compile a list of the songs featured at the park. If there is anyone out there who can help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated!

Also, I know someone who is going down to WDW next week, and I wanted to give her some money to make some WDW Forever CDs for me. I've called down to the resort and have received different answers as to whether they still exist or not. Any confirmations on this would be great!

Thanks a bunch!
Tim

To Eric (and everyone else reading this),

Thank you for passing on the news, albeit it's truly sad to learn that these kiosks are no longer around. Like I said, I worked down there in the Fall of 1995 (before the kiosks and the technology were even thought of). Sadly, I haven't been down there since. I heard of the kiosks about three years ago, but couldn't act on it at the time. Oh well. Here's to hoping that someday they'll do it again. Right? :)

In the meantime, I'll have to keep humming the tune "As I Was Strolling Through the Park One Day" from Main Street in my head. LOL

Incidentally, I also wonder if they ever made available the Railroad tune "Rolling, Rolling, Rolling Express....Rolling on the Walt Disney World Express" (circa 1990). My parents and siblings have a unique and hilarious "Disney Moment" story tied in with that song.

Thanks again! I will definitely be reading this forum for years to come!

sds910,

WoW!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! This Forum is the BEST!

Talk about quick turnaround!

I had a list of about 10 songs that I vividly remember, considering it was almost 7 years ago. I thought it was cool when I realized the version of "Sleigh Ride" that played at the park was the same one that was on the Time-Life Treasury of Christmas CD set I already owned at the time.

Anyway, I've been a professional DJ for the past 4 years, so I should be able to track down most of these songs!

This is the best "souvenir" I could have from that wonderful time in my life. Granted, the songs did annoy me to tears while I worked there on 10 hour shifts, 5 days a week for at about 5 months. LOL

Thanks again, and thanks to everyone who helped compile that list. If I come up with info on the "unknowns," I'll let you know!

Tim:

To clarify a couple of things --

1) The list has never been published here before (so for anyone else looking in, this is a new one!)

2) There are no unknowns at all on the list -- if you spotted the "Artist Unknown" selection in Hour 3, there's no artist listed on the CD. The disc in question is called "Steel Band Music of the Caribbean". I should have spotted that myself when I posted this version of the list. The original documentation on this also includes disc titles for each selection.

3) The only selections that have yet to be found by those of us assembling this monster are four tracks all sourced from the same "various artists" yodeling music CD, the title of which is "Die Schonsten Jodler Der Berge". If anyone can turn *that* puppy up, we'll have the last fills (Hour 2, Cut 3 - Hour 3, Cut 4 and Hour 4, Cuts 5 & 7)... and at that point, I'll be more than happy to post the whole mess to Usenet. If anyone can turn up that CD, send me a private message. Oh, and big kudos to Shawn, who knows who he is and deserves a ton of credit for getting us this far 2 1/2 years ago when the lion's share of this work was done!

"...Incidentally, I also wonder if they ever made available the Railroad tune "Rolling, Rolling, Rolling Express....Rolling on the Walt Disney World Express" (circa 1990)...."

Tim, the song you're referring to was the welcoming song for Mickey's Birthdayland, which is now Mickey's ToonTown Fair, at WDW. "Mickey's Birthdayland Express" was played on the WDW Railroad train between the Frontierland and (now) ToonTown Fair stations, as you approached Mickey's Birthdayland. It was a very catchy tune... I remember it, too, and I don't even have a recording of it.

does anyone? :)

Mickey's BirthdayLand Train Music

Mike,

You are right on about the music being played between Frontierland and Mickey's Birthdayland. That's where my parents' "incident" occurred.

Allow me to share my Disney Moment (for all those who want a good chuckle):

My mother, father, and younger sister and brother (I know, a natural "MFSB" if there ever was) were all on the train after 11 p.m. back in the summer of 1990. We had just watched the Main Street Electrical Parade finish in Frontierland, and we got on the train at the Frontierland station to head to Main Street. As we got on the train, my mother laid her portable cane/chair on the floor. She has had a severe back condition for most of her life, so she had to have it with her, especially for queu lines. The cane/chair was a walking cane that would unfold into a tripod seat.

Anyway, as the train made its way to Mickey's Birthdayland, the cane slipped off the train into the woods near the Indian Village. While it wasn't funny at the moment, we all laugh about it now. To make a long story short, we ended up riding that train around the park about 4-5 times in a row while Cast Members tried to find the cane in the late evening dark. We heard that "Rolling, rolling, rolling express" song waaay too many times. My brother, my father, and I ended up teasing my poor mom that she threw the cane off on purpose, and then we kept teasing her that the Indians from the Indian village snagged it and made it their centerpiece for their village.
;D
So, as you can tell, that song holds a peculiar place in my life, and to be able to track down a copy of it would be fantastic!

If anyone has a copy, I'd love to obtain a copy.

Thanks for bearing with my story!
Tim
 
THANK YOU for posting that list!!
I worked at Blizzard Beach in food & beverage/merchandise Feb-May '98.

I worked at LattaWatta Lodge and heard that loop OVER and OVER and OVER...

I too must admit it holds a special place in my heart!

THANKS again!
