Unfortunately, I don't know the answer to your question. However, I noticed that many of the Splash Mountain tracks that were available via WDW Forever aren't on your list. When were they taken away from the loop?

I don't believe most of the WDWF tracks were ever part of the BGM. I was actually suprised to find that 16 of the tracks were WDWF tracks.

If the WDWF tracks weren't, in fact, played at WDW, where were they played? DL's Critter Country?

One wonders why they didn't just end up on those kiosks instead.

TDL's and WDW's Splash Mountain loops share a lot of the same tracks, though tehy aren't identical. Disneyland's on the other hand uses totally different music tracks from WDW (not sure if TDL has any DL tracks). But tracks from one park mistakenly ending up on the wrong coast's kiosks happened a lot. Most (if not all?) of the Big Thunder tracks from DLF never played at Disneyland. Same with the Columbia Sailing Ship music I believe. From what I hear the music archives at WDI are notoriously unorganized and very little exists inthe way of documentation for what plays where, when and for how long. Without someone who knows exactly what they are listening to, relying on WDI's labels might lead to a bit of confusion.


Well and, based on the big document that came along with the DLF project, DLF used what it could from old song files not restricted from release rights by later union rules and when WDW made their forever system they sprung on release rights to many newer things, so stuff you'd have expected on DLF's couldn't have been there.

And yeah, I was gonna say I think at least one of the WDW tracks has been released in cd quality on a tokyo cd but it may just be a partial song.

Two tracks from the BTM BGM have been released on a Tokyo official CD (Treasures of Fantasy) - West of the Wide Missouri and California Gold.

It's the tracks labeled "Piano" that I would like to find the source of.
