    Magic Journeys played at Disneyland from June 16, 1984 until September 8, 1986, according to the Walt Disney Archives.

    okay, if MAGIC JOURNEYS premiered at EPCOT, then it I want to change my vote back to it. Please forgive my voting irregularities, but I live in Florida.

    This is a tough one. Let me say it's unfair that "Tomorrow's Child" and "Universe of Energy" are lumped into other. But above all "New Horizons" is the tops.

    Oops! Sorry everyone. I really thought it was at Disneyland before 1982. My mistake!

    MAGIC JOURNEYS rules by the way ;)
    Did anyone check out the 17 minute soundboard copy that a guy in alt.disney.disneyland got his hands on?
    Excellent.

    I have always loved the Main Entrance Medley best.

    Re:Best original EPCOT SONG

    For me it's a VERY CLOSE three way race between my three all-time favorite EPCOT songs which also happen to be from my three all-time favorite EPCOT attractions:

    "One Little Spark", from the ORIGINAL Journey Into Imagination!

    "Veggie Veggie Fruit Fruit" from the late, great Kitchen Kabaret!

    And lastly, the very happy, upbeat, Small World-esque song sung by the children in El Rio Del Tiempo! ("la la la la la" etc.) I think it's called "Fiestas In Mexico" or "Vistas In Mexico", which for this poll would fit under "other".

    I do enjoy all of the original EPCOT music, and as on all of these polls, it's near impossible for me to pick just one - but for favorite EPCOT song I can at least easily narrow it to these three.

    One thing I can say with absolute certainty is that "Fiestas In Mexico" is my favorite SURVIVING song curently still playing at EPCOT (assuming it's still there). I hope one of these days it will FINALLY be released on CD and get the attention it deserves. Perhaps on a future "Official Album", since those can only contain "current" park music?

    Re:Best original EPCOT SONG

    I chose Golden Dream, but the original mix, not the new version. The climax is much more thrilling. I also am partial to the original Spaceship Earth track that ppayed as you reached the apex of the ride, and also the background music that used to play in Future World.

    while I'm at it, I also prefer the original Illuminations.[Gee. I'm a old timer. What do you expect? }

    However, the most enjoyment I've had at Epcot is the Voices Of Liberty concerts held in the rotunda in the American Adventure.

    it is. And I agree, David...it's still a fun, catchy song. Rio Del Tiempo was my favorite Epcot attraction for a LONG long time and a good part of it was because of that song.

    Thanks for the info, Sharon. If I end up moving to central Florida, I will look forward to being able to ride El Rio Del Tiempo over and over again, whenever I want!

    I chose Golden Dream, but there are so many other great songs from Epcot's formative years, it really was hard to pick. Even though it's not an individual song, the original Entrance Medley is my all-time favorite Epcot track.

    Back from the dead! :unsure:

    I have added twice as many choices?the original poll ended up with too many votes cast for 'Other.' I have also removed the original results. So, if you were around in 2002 and you already voted, you now get to vote again! B)

    I thought it really strange that all these people I never see on teh board were spouting back and forth and talking about their conversations being same as usual until i saw the date =P

    And where's the Test Track queue? =(

    /okay fine but I'm still voting other =P

    The songs were taken from Epcot's early days. So, rather than add the Test Track queue, I should be removing Russell Brower's Future World Theme. :unsure:

    To me, it's hard to describe. I have the Official Album of EPCOT Center and love all of the songs. I didn't get to see EPCOT until 2001 and 2003. Can I say that the scores of Spaceship Earth (Jeremy Irons version) and Impressions de France are my favorites?

    I miss the cohesiveness of the original Epcot soundtrack. The whole park had a musical backdrop that all blended together, adding to the overall experience. I miss that.

    One Little Spark from the ORIGINAL Journey Into Imagination gets my vote.
