Just wanted to check to say the new fireworks show is truly spectacular. I saw it opening night in a mob of excited people. And, yes, I stopped by guest relations and expressed my wish to see the music on a cd!
if the release of the fireworks soundtrack really depends on guest demand I don't see this happening. During my recent visit to WDW I visited City Halls several times to place my request for a soundtrack release with some CM there. Everytime I encountered a different CM and with the exception of my last try I always received the same, totally wrong answer: "We can't take down your request as WDW's policy is never to release musical material from a new show or similar, the soundtrack of Fantasy in the Sky fireworks was only released because the show was running so long already". When I pointed out that this is not quiet correct and that I would like to place my request regardless of this policy which I questioned anyway they said all they could do is calling in a manager. The later they said with a clear undertone of "the manager will then explain the same to you, you stupid, stupid guest". I doubt that many normal guests who might be interested the soundtrack go to the length necessary to put in the request.
It's not to brag or show off but , some years ago, I did work as a host at Epcot (Center) Guest Relations and I sure would have treated guests' requests that way -- even more since i so enjoy Disney music! --
Disney Cast Members sure are NOT the same as when I was there!
I noticed that on my last visit in 2001 to WDW Resort....
Cast members do get easily "impatient" with guests... or don't even listen to the requests and are quick to jump to conclusions...
On the other hand, that place is now so HUGE!!
Just an update to the wishes response at City Hall...Guest Relations does not record written comments from guests. If you would like to have Wishes on CD you must contact Guest Communications. This is the department that tracks guest feedback. Their address was on an earlier post I saw.
RUMOR!!! ONLY A RUMOR!!!! But a friend of mine who is a merchandise CM says a "Wishes" cd may be available as soon as the end of this month! AGAIN it's only a RUMOR based on a conversation he heard at work.
GUYS GREAT NEWS!!
I PERSONALLY KNOW STEVEN DAVIDSON THE CREATOR OF THE WISHES FIREWORKS SHOW AT WDW. AND I TOLD HIM THAT ALOT OF US DISNEY MUSIC FANS WANT TO GET A HOLD OF E MUSIC AND HE SAID THAT IT WILL BE RELEASED IN 2004, THERE IS NO SET DATE BUT THEY ARE DECIDING IF IT WILL BE RELEASED AS A SINGLE OR ON THE NEW OA. SO I GUESS ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS WAIT AND BE PATIENT. AND ALL OUR "WISHES WILL COME TRUE"!
This appears to be true! I recently picked up the disc on eBay, and it is actually a CD-ROM with some information about Philharmagic and Wishes, and what I believe is the complete Wishes soundtrack (music and narration in stereo) as a set of nine mp3 files (total running time 15:52).
