I'm Going to Disney World

Over on Rodentsections, there's a torrent from Disney Radio in the 1990s. This was the low-powered radio station that played near Ocala as you drove over the border from Georgia to Florida... and played a 20+ min loop promoting WDW as you continued on your journey there. I wrote a post regarding my memories of this over on my forums.

I mention it because it includes a catchy tune that still sticks in my memory, "I'm Going to Disney World". The lyrics pulled from the loop:

I'm Going to Disney World

Getting excited
Vacation's begun
Ready for Mickey
Time for some fun
It's going to be great
I bet you can't wait

I'm going to Disney World
I'm going to Disney World
Sing this tune like a bird
Say the magic words
I'm going to Disney World (ooh ooh ooh!)
I'm going to Disney World

=========

I'm going to Disney World
I'm going to Disney World
See movie stars
And fly way past Mars
I'm going to Disney World (ooh ooh ooh!)
I'm going to Disney World

=========

I'm going to Disney World
I'm going to Disney World

=========

I'm going to Disney World
I'm going to Disney World
If you're perplexed
On what you're gonna do next
I'm going to Disney World (ooh ooh ooh!)
I'm going to Disney World

=========

My question is... was this tune ever used elsewhere? I seem to remember hearing a Disneyland-related version to the same melody someplace, perhaps on commercials or promotional materials. Does anyone know anything else about this song?

Thanks,
Steve
