Disneyland Resort Official Album
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
It's great to finally have music from the Disney Parks available on iTunes. I was disappointed when they never put up the album "Disney's Happiest Celebration On Earth," and it made me wonder if the music from Disneyland and Walt Disney World music would ever be available on iTunes for all to enjoy. Needless to say, I was thrilled when I saw this from iTunes today. I already have a lot of these tracks, including the classics "Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life For Me)" and "Grim Grinning Ghosts," but there are also a few previously unreleased tracks that I am excited to add to my collection. If you're in love with the Parks, but don't have the music, then this is for you. I would also recommend this if you don't know much about the parks and are curious. The best part is, like the parks, this music is fun for all ages! Things to note - there is both a Disneyland and Walt Disney World soundtrack available. Some of the songs are mutual, though some are different records. "All Aboard!" and "Splash Mountain Medley" are essentially the same songs but are different recordings. "Grim Grinning Ghosts," "The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room" and "Yo Ho" are the exact same recordings. It appears "Winnie The Pooh" is the same recording, but the WDW one is slightly edited for time. Overall, I prefer the Disneyland album is a whole, but you really can't go wrong with either, and there are some gems to be found exclusively on the WDW album too.
Great Collection, BUT....
It´s wonderful that those new albums with music from the Disney Parks finally are available online... Still i wonder why Disney tries to cram music from all the attractions and areas on two cds instead of using the new download stores to make seperate albums for the lands / attractions / areas and so on... Why not make a special album with let´s say all the tunes from Main Street U.S.A.... or the several Randy Newman Songs that are played at the Toy Story Shooting Ride... They did it with the Jazz music that plays at Carthay Circle restaurant, which i listen to regularly. After all you can´t take the Haunted Mansion or It´s a small world to your home, but its music...
I'm so happy Disney has finally released this!!!!!! The music is OUTSTANDING and the sound quality is just as amazing! They made an awesome choice to but this music on an album!
