A "sneak peek" work-in-progress for Premium Members...

I used to think this was on "shuffle," but it mostly follows a set order, with an occasional jump to another part of the list. I should have it all figured out shortly. :)

Did you climb the fence? :)
Nope. I think you should try bribing one of the half dozen or so M.I.B. who are wandering back and forth each night with seemingly very little to do but wander. Offer one of 'em $50 for the radio spots and I'll go halfsies with you. :p

On a more serious note, I'm planning to go back and grab the radio spots with a pair of in-ear binaural microphones. The sound echoing off of the buildings and the cheering crowds are all part of the experience. A copy of the source audio would actually be boring in comparison.

Very cool. I've been looking forward to this listing. Does the question mark on Jingle Bells imply you're not 100% sure on that one yet?

Any chance you'll complete this before it starts up this year? There was a request on WDWMagic about the playlist, so I've directed them to MagicMusic, while bashing ParkTunes at the same time. B)

Good point...I have a whole bunch of Disneyland holiday loops to get properly formatted before the season arrives. Guess I should get started on that soon...

I am working on this right now. I will be posting my analysis of the several different nights that I attended last year as I finish with each of my recordings. I already know what all of the songs are, but I am trying to determine an "order," as things are not quite as random as they might appear. I am already hard at work on this year's playlist as well.

Moving this topic into public view...

One question, Jay. Frosty the Snowman, is it the version from the old cartoon movie or is it the longer version on the Christmas Album which is around 3:00??

Also the album that What Child is This?-Venessa Williams is called Merry Christmas Volume II ;)

I heard Santa Clause is Coming to Town-Bruce Springsteen from the album This is Christmas!!

I heard them play "Snowtime" from tokyo's 2008 xmas castle show and it didn't sound like the show version. Can you confirm from your recording whether it is or not? By that time I might have just been used to the faster tempo used for the song in the parade version that year so I'm sure I was imagining the tempo being slower, but I remember the vocals being different.

Thanks for this playlist!
It's not done yet. I've got two more full-night recordings to go through. I'll be posting a finalized version with links, etc., when I'm finished.

I originally identified Snowtime by searching the internet for the parts of the lyrics that I was able to make out. I don't have any of the Tokyo music on a CD that I can compare to my live recording, but what I heard at the Osborne Lights sounds similar to what can be heard in this YouTube video:


My recording definitely features the same lead vocalist, but the pace is a bit slower, and she doesn't have as many backing vocals, especially at the end, where she repeats "Mickey and his friends are here" a couple of times without any backing.

I need to pick up :cd: Christmas Fantasy 2008 and :cd: Tokyo Disney Resort Dreams of the 25th and give them a listen.

Snowtime is in use again this year.
