I have a recording named "Disneyland Paris, Main Entrance loop" which, I am told, is the same as the Main Entrance loop for MK from 1971-92 (I had uploaded on Rodentsections but removed it when told it was MK).
Now, some time ago, I asked if anyone knew what the music was that was played in the walkways at DLRP (then Eurodisney) - the ones from the car parking area to the main entrance without much response.
Looking through the titles in the MK loop, they look really similar to the ones played in the walkways (although I can only recall around half of them and I have no idea about the order).
I found it interesting that the loop ceased at the MK in 1992 (when DLRP opened).
I'm suspecting that they used the same loop at DLRP when it first opened and Disney replaced the MK loop and passed the old one to Paris.
The entrance music at DLRP now certainly isn't the same as that walkway music, of that I am certain.
Can anyone shed any light?

It's my understanding that the 1992 entrance loops for Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom were done in conjunction with the entrance loop produced for EuroDisneyland.

The earlier 1970s-1980s era loop was, to my knowledge, used at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom from 1971-1992 and at Tokyo Disneyland from 1983-2003, though with a different track order at TDL. The earlier loop was composed of (mostly?) need-drop tracks, including music from the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Band LPs, themes from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and a few Frank Chacksfield tracks, among others.

Hopefully someone else here will back up this information.

Best,

So (let me get this right) that the MK loop AND the Eurodisney loop would have been the same in 1992?

I'm fairly certain that the walkway music at Paris was the same as the "Entrance" music as most were played at a tempo that made you walk just that little faster along the walkways and into the resort (but 16 years is a long time ago and I wasn't quite as observant of the music then - too caught up in the Magic ;D )
That would explain why I have two identical loops (both labeled Disneyland Paris) - one called "main entrance" and one "Esplanade"(which would be the walkways etc).
It would all make sense then! :eek:
