I just got back from WDW and was able to go to Mickey's Not so Scary Halloween party at the Magic Kingdom. While watching the Boo to You Parade, there was a song played during the first float with Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Piglet. It was a very catchy instrumental song that I can't identify. Anybody have any ideas of the name of the song and if it is available on cd?

Any help would be appreiciated. Thank you.

Thank you Tommy.

I went to Amazon.com and listened to Pee Wee's Big Adventure Soundtrack. The music from from the Pooh float is very similar to track number two (The Breakfast Machine) on the soundtrack. Disney put there own spin to it for the parade. Again, Thank you.

After listening to Pee Wee's Big Adventure soundtrack, again.

I believe it is the "Finale" track.

Fitting that Disney used a piece from this soundtrack. Being that it was composed by Danny Elfman, also known for his work with the "Nightmare before Christmas".

Speaking of Pee Wee's Big Adventure, there is a perky track which sounds very retro and VERY familiar. I almost feel like it was ripped off of the second cast album of a Disney feature....Lady and the Tramp? 101 Dalmatians?

Anyone know what I mean?
Can't answer your question, Bill, but it's obvious that Elfman was influenced by Nino Rota for PEE WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE. For example, during the above-mentioned "Breakfast Machine", there is a section which is VERY reminiscent of Rota's I CLOWNS (THE CLOWNS). Touches of Bernard Herrmann can also be heard in the score.

I believe that Elfman has talked openly about these influences.
