It is interesting. I've always wondered why Disney didn't release these tracks again (or new ones for that matter) for sale on iTunes.
I'd :lol: at this if it wasn't so damn true and depressing!! At least they could have given us the beautiful exit music from IYHW in place of the New Orleans-style jazz track. :angry:I've always wondered whether they gave a Disneylander the job of picking out stuff for Walt Disney World Forever because while Disneyland Forever had some great old stuff to choose from, e.g. the Wizard of Bras narration, the historical depth of selections for Walt Disney World can be measured in things like the ONE track from If You Had Wings.
That would take all the fun out of standing around for an hour or so hoping the CMs don't notice the wires :lol:Imagine being able to wander into a land or area, attach your mp3 player to a 'kiosk' and download attraction soundtracks, loops and playlists - that would take the Kiosks into the 21st century. Any purchase could then go towards licensing costs and fees, keeping it totally legal. Now that's something I'd be interested in. It might even be possible to bluetooth to a device?
So that's what happened.There were several problems with the Forever system. First, the people working on the project didn't know any better and failed to obtain proper licensing for many of the tracks. Second, the operation of the kiosks was confusing for both guests and cast members alike. Third, even if you knew what you were doing, it took way too long to put together a collection of tracks. This is why we ended up with the Wonderland system consisting of [post=15971]predefined collections[/post] (of properly licensed music).
I don't think that would work for the reasons stated above.Couldn't they bring the Wonderland system back for DL & WDW, except you get a complete album of park music, with a choice to pick from five categories with a CD each at $20(?) from one of those five categories:
---"Area Music" (like, the New Orleans Square area or the Plaza Inn Restaurant);
--- "Attraction Music" (Adventure Thru Inner Space or The Mickey Mouse Revue);
---"Shows & Parades Music" (Splashtacular or one of the parades); and two called,
----"Lost & Found", where music that has not been heard for a long time would surface, (like the complete "Tomorrowland 2055 Music) and
---- "Music from Other Parks", with albums like, "Music from Meet The World" from TDL& "Time Thru Time." DLP
That's just a quick idea I just got, I doubt this would really happen, but it's a nice dream to have for Disney Music fans.
Well, OK, maybe not so much on the area music & other parks music, but still, I could see some of the old park tracks ether being released for the first time or re-released.I don't think that would work for the reasons stated above.
The Wonderland CDs (as I understand it and I may be wrong here) were for Disney titles (ie already owned by Disney) rather than for stuff Disney licenses from elsewhere and plays in the park.
Most area music isn't owned by Disney so they would have to renegotiate everything.
I doubt it would be worth their while.
There's also a problem with Tokyo stuff as Tokyo isn't owned by Disney so (I think) License the music themselves (with some restrictions from Disney which is why some TDL stuff is only available within Japan).
Same arguments apply to all the music played in the park. Someone, somewhere, owns the copyright to everything used.Well, OK, maybe not so much on the area music & other parks music, but still, I could see some of the old park tracks ether being released for the first time or re-released.
