Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure

It's been quite a while since my last post and for that I apologize. I assure you that I have many things in the works and there should be more postings up here quite soon. For the moment, however, I'd like to go beyond the normal scope of this blog for a second and actually list a loop from Walt Disney World, based on some information gathered during my recent trip.

I'm not sure how much time readers of this blog have spent exploring the Honey I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set Adventure at Disney's Hollywood Studios, other than those with young children, but in addition to being a decently large and well-themed play area, it features one of the more interesting (in my opinion) loops at Walt Disney World. Instead of taking music from the associated films, as one might expect, it is comprised instead of 10 tracks of the New Age genre- one of the relatively few New Age loops that have played at the resort, though the old Tomorrowland Area Music and the Wonders of Life loop spring to mind (in fact, both of those loops included a track from the HISTK loop, Behind the Waterfall, with the Wonders of Life loop also including Celestial Soda Pop and The Oh of Pleasure from this loop).

The tracks that comprise the loop have been known for some time now, as (somewhat unusually) Guest Relations managed to provide information that was both accurate and complete:

In the interest of not making things too easy however, the list lacks one important piece of information: the order the tracks play in. And so it has been for some time. Having completed a live reference recording, I can now provide the loop in it's actual play order:

1. Celestial Soda Pop
2. Behind the Waterfall
3. Valley of the Kings
4. The Oh of Pleasure
5. Rain Forest
6. Rhythm in the Pews
7. Clouds Below Your Knees
8. The True Spirit of Mom and Dad
9. No Blue Thing
10. Tiny Geometries

Now, while all these songs play, there are some edits- my reference recording is just over 44 minutes while a playlist containing all of the tracks totals 51:41. My recording is rather quiet (an induction recording was not possible since the speakers are all mounted high, high up, disguised as blades of grass) which makes determining the exact timing of the edits difficult. Furthermore, the loop is occasionally interrupted (and not always in the same place) by the sound of a swarm of bees passing by, which causes the loop to cut mid song and then return once the bee sound effect has finished playing. This prevents a true reconstruction from being possible.

Nevertheless, it is an enjoyable loop, one of my favorites, and I'm glad to finally be able to share the correct playing order.
