The Music of Future World

The Music of Future World

Welcome to those of you joining me from Disney Babies Blog and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail.

Today we are discussing the best music in the Disney Parks. I love the background music you can find the parks and resorts. It adds so much to the theme of each area and when I listen to it at home it takes me back to my favorite places. My favorite background loops are found in Epcot and Future World. I could (and sometimes do) listen to it daily. It reminds me of my favorite spots, the joy I feel when I’m there, and memories that I cherish. And I always love it when I find people that appreciate a good Disney background loop (I’m looking at you This Happy Place Blog and Disney Hipsters.) Here are just a few of my favorites from Future World.

Epcot Entrance Loop

If this music doesn’t make you happy then I don’t know if we can be friends. 🙂 The best part of rope drop at Epcot is listening to this. I probably play this more than any other theme park audio because it includes pieces from attractions and the World Showcase. The downside though is that it really makes you want to be in the park!

Fountain of Nations

Music and a show! If you haven’t taken the time to hang out next to the Fountain of Nations to watch the show then you have to on your next trip. The shows happen every 15 minutes and are set to different pieces of music. Everything from music from Disney films like The Rocketeer to classic attractions to music from Yanni can be played. (ParkTunes has list of everything.)

Fountain of Nations

I like to catch the show twice. Once early in the morning while I’m enjoying my Starbucks coffee from Fountain View and then again in the evening when the fountain lights up.

And when the water isn’t dancing you can enjoy the awesomeness that is the Innoventions background loop.

Spaceship Earth

If attraction music is more your thing then you can’t beat the music of Spaceship Earth. You can sit, close your eyes, and be taken back to the dawn of recorded time. What I love about YouTube is that you can also find older versions of the attraction audio. I pull up the Walter Cronkite version when I want to me taken back to riding the attraction as a kid. I seriously get tears in my eyes whenever I hear Tomorrow’s Child.

.

I also love listening to the Jeremy Irons version. If you love the history of Spaceship Earth head over to Lost Epcot for a comparison of the scripts through the years.

.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed our mini tour of some of the music of Future World. Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Frontierland Station.

    I think the Epcot future world loop is my favorite. It just exudes joy and promise for the future. It always puts me in a good mood. You also MADE MY DAY by mentioning the Jeremy Irons version of Spaceship Earth. It’s like listening to a poem and I get nostalgic for it every single time. Great post!

    Twomomsandamouse Me too!! It is probably one of the best loops.  I also like to fall asleep to it.  So peaceful.

    You hit the nail on the head with me!  I too am in LOVE with Future World’s background loops and attractions loops!  It is part of why I feel so connected to Epcot… I listen to some Disney stations on live 365 when at home and it just brings me right back… great choice for this post!

    Oh my goodness- my son plays these same tracks for me all the time!!  He has quite the collection of in-park music, and the tracks from Epcot, new and old, are his absolute favorites.  (Although at 22 years old, he seems to prefer the “retro” tracks!)   I need to show him this post!!!

    What a fabulous post, full of lots of great music!  I love music and consider it a large part of my life, yet I often take it for granted at Walt Disney World.  It’s just there and seems so much a part of the atmosphere that I don’t even really think about it.  Thanks so much for pointing out – and sharing – some of my favorites. 🙂

    I need to pay more attention here!  Do you have these on a CD?  If so, what’s it called?

    I love the Fountain of Nations music.  There is something very uplifting about it, and I could listen to it all day.  Overall I think Epcot has some of the very best background loops of the Disney properties!

    As you know – I LOVE that music, too!!  I have 4 parks 1 world CD and listen to it regularly in the car – and one of my favorite parts in runDisney events is hearing the music in there! I don’t really remember the other Spaceship earth editions, but I enjoy listening to them – is the Cronkite your fave with the song?

    Epcot was the first park I ever went to. As soon as I hear the music I’m always brought back to that time when everything was fresh and new.  I think the Innoventions Loop is my favorite Epcot music loop. I also like the music they play after IllumiNations. How about you?

    I love listening to the background music from Disney too! The Epcot Entrance medley is one of my favorites. And The Fountain of Nations has some pretty awesome music too! I love watching the fountain when I’m at Epcot.

    Mickey_MDOD  It’s so hard to choose! But I think the Epcot Entrance is my favorite. I could listen to it every day. 🙂

    Wow!  What a great post Melissa!  Thanks for sharing so many great musical selections for us to enjoy — and video too!  I have some great music in my iTunes library that has the music from all over the parks, and while I don’t listen to it all the time, I do enjoy it.  Out of all of the ones you talked about today, which set of music is your favorite, or is it too hard to choose just one?
