Disney Theme Park CDs and Music


Walt Disney World and Disneyland park music is available on official album CDs and via MP3 download, leaked original source recordings, and on-site live recordings. Park music has become incredibly popular as it is one way people can relive their vacations and instantly transport themselves back to their “happy places” in Walt Disney World or Disneyland.

A lot of effort goes into creating the music heard in Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Most people are familiar with the big-name attraction themes, like those from ‘it’s a small world’ and Haunted Mansion. Many of these songs were penned by the Sherman Brothers, two of the most significant people in the history of Disney. Other music heard in the parks is far less famous, but resonates with us just as strongly. Off the top of your head, you may not have any idea what music plays in the ‘background’ of Tomorrowland or the Innoventions breezeways. However, I’ll bet if you download and play those tracks, you would instantly recognize them. That’s what I found when I first started “collecting” Disney theme park music, and I have so much now that despite having it play for several hours each day, I can go an entire week without playing the same track twice!

Fortunately for fans, unlike Disney parks book collecting, music collecting is a relatively inexpensive hobby. In fact, it can even be free! I keep all of my music in digital form, so unlike books, it also doesn’t take up any physical space. This primer will get you started on the road to having an excellent collection of music from the Disney theme parks. (more…)

Instagram Disney Photos

Instagram is a fun way to quickly share photos from your phone, with the ability to push photos to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Flickr, as well as “Like” and comment on photos directly in the Instragram app, meaning that there are lots of opportunities for social engagement via Instagram! A lot of people are sharing Instagram photos from Disneyland and Walt Disney World, including us here at DisneyTouristBlog.com! You can find Sarah (who posts ONLY photos from the parks) on Instagram @sarahbricker and Tom @tom_bricker.

If you’re just getting started with iPhoneography or taking photos with your phone, you’ll want to read our Disney iPhoneography Tips. We (well, mostly just Sarah) take iPhoneography pretty seriously, so those tips should help raise your camera photography game! (more…)
