Is this a Disney Loop - and Where From?

I asked this on Rodentsections a while back but didn't really get any results.
Some time back I downloaded a loop from somewhere (I don't remember where) which was titled "Splash Mountain Area Music Loop".
Now it's NOT from WDW or DL (I have been assured of that).
It's very Disney sounding but I just can't find if it's a genuine loop from one of the parks (it has been suggested it may be from Tokyo - not DLRP as they haven't got SM, of course) or just someone's idea of what one should sound like via a home compilation - although a compilation of what, I have no idea..
I don't quite understand why someone would label it as that if it has no relationship to the attraction. Maybe an area near it - or even a restaurant or something?
I uploaded it to:

If anyone can recognise it, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks

Well, from my understanding, Tokyo Disneyland uses the same loop as WDW, so there shouldn't be a third loop floating around. Now, it's possible that it could be from "Aunt Sara's Kitchen" at TDL, but I'm unaware of that loop, or even if it's different from the main Splash Mountain loop.

I have to say that sometimes people do make up their own loops and mislabel them in order to get a good trade. There have been a few of those floating around and they are just fan-made versions of something that might sound like what they're passing it off as, hoping nobody will notice.

Hopefully somebody here can help identify this and tell you what it actually is, if used in any Disney parks.

TDL does not use the same loop as WDW, at least based on the recording that I have. I listened to this a while back and it sounded like a fan made reconstruction to me.

Pretty sure someone just stuck various WDWF Splash Mountain tracks together, which include MK, TDL & DL music.

This loop is definitely a recreation. The pauses are too long between the songs...the non-forever songs are either wrong titles or different performances...the length is unlikely...the quality of the recordings varies too greatly...sounds to me like the non-Disney songs are all from the same source...

I think Ben and Horizons are right. This was made as an attempt to have something to trade hoping that no one would notice.
The nerve of some people!

Yes, I tend to think that's it a fan-made one as well but, for the life of me, I can't figure where they got the music from although I'm sure the version of "Oh Susana" is very similar to that played on the Mike Fink boats (Rogue River Keel Boats) at DLRP.
It seems an "odd" mix as some of the tunes are obviously bluegrass standards (but slowed to the tempo of other Disney Western tunes which, I feel, is something particular to Disney - probably to encourage walking at a certain speed :D ), some are from Splash Mountain (sooner or later, How do you do and Laughing place) and is does have the feel of places in Frontierland although more like the fort or shops.
I too noticed the rather long pauses between tunes.
My suspicion is that someone has access to the loops and has compiled their own "favourite" CD from Frontierland and Splash Mountain/Critter country or maybe found the music that Disney selected some track srom (A lot of DLRP Frontierland loop is from the "Happy Trails" CD but there is much more on the CD than Disney uses). It has such a "Disney" feel about it as well and it's quite a pleasant loop or, as said, just stuck some "Disney-sounding" stuff together for nefarious purposes.
I must try and delve into things and see if I can find out if the individual tracks are from anywhere in particular.
I hate things that remain a mystery :angry:

Oh, if anyone wants it, please feel free to download it on the strict understanding that it WON'T be posted/uploaded anywhere under it's present title. There's enough mislabeled stuff around already :(
The track tag says Artist:Disney and Title:Splash Mountain Area.
Please change that as well.

A quick update on this.
These tracks are from the WDW forever (only up to the letter "O") as BLM07 suggested
The torrent is on Rodentsections and they match those there and in the same order.
I think Bill, in his wisdom, was wrong in what he said :lol:
Problem solved.

I thought we determined this was something that was not specific to any park and, most likely, just a fan made loop since a majority of the tracks came from the Forever sets.

No, only strong suggestions that it was either a fan made loop or that some came from WDWF - in fact they all do - and in the same order. Also, Bill suggested that there were non-Disney tracks there as well (there aren't although, as I'm sure you know, there are a few traks in the WDWF that are not used anywhere else). No actual definitive answer.
As I didn't have those files then, I couldn't confirm or deny either so thought it polite now that I have listened to them to confirm that those suggestions that they were simply from the kiosks were, in fact correct.
Not being familiar with the kiosks and how they work(ed), I don't know if they were all made on one CD there or compiled later, of course.
Also, at the time, I had no idea what WDWF stood for in the replies which didn't help :lol:

Also, don't know if it was mentioned here or on Rodentsections, but the tracks are all from WDWF and are in alphabetical order according to the track names on the WDWF system, e.g. Burrow's Lament rather than Sooner or Later.
