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.)
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.
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.
