    I am interested in knowing what everyones choice would be for favorite park for music (Disneyland, DCA, Epcot, TDL, etc..)

    My choice is Epcot. I love the Spacey sounds from Future World and the different sounds from the World Showcase. Not to mention, the current Illuminations show is great!

    Do you mean just music in general, or which park has the best CD's?

    In general, I would have to agree with you that Epcot is my favorite park (except that they've taken out all of the old rides with theme songs). I love World Showcase! I haven't been to Tokyo DisneySea yet, but I'll bet that's got some great music too.

    As for CD's, hands down it's TDL!

    In terms of music, I'd say Epcot and DHS. They sound so majestic while still sounding contemporary. You get a mix of both at each park.
    Here is a breakdown of pretty much all the music you hear in each park and its moods.

    Spaceship Earth - majestic/orchestral (current)
    majestic/orchestral/synthetic (1994)
    majestic/orchestral/synthetic (1986)

    Universe of Energy - majestic/orchestral/light-hearted (current)
    majestic/orchestral/synthetic (original)

    Captain EO - orchestral/majestic/heroic
    Magic Journeys - orchestral/smooth/synthetic

    Journey Into Imagination (current) - orchestral/light-hearted (main attraction music)
    contemporary/weird/synthetic (outside area music)
    (1999) - contemporary/weird/synthetic (all music)
