If you are like me, you enjoy listening to Disney music at home to keep you in the mood between your trips to a Disney park. Right now without an opening date yet announced for either Walt Disney World or Disneyland as of this writing, I find myself listening to a lot of Disneyland music on my phone, computer, and my CD player. If you are in need of a way to get into the Disney spirit or need background music for a celebration, here are three easy ways to find Disneyland Resort Park music you can play at home.
First Way – Streaming Service. There are several streaming services out there – Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music – and my favorite album to find on each of them is Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection: Disneyland. This album was released during the 2015 60th Diamond Celebration at Disneyland and has 54 songs and sounds from both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park. There are vintage songs, like “The Big Bear Serenade” from the Country Bear Jamboree and The Main Street Electrical Parade, as well as current music, like Radiator Springs Racers and Fantasmic! In total, there is music totaling 3 hours and 47 minutes.
If you are on Spotify and need enough music for a road trip, search for the playlist, “Disneyland Park Music + Cal. Adventure.” This playlist has 7 hours and 21 minutes of park music. There is just about everything you ever wanted to hear on this playlist, including songs by Larry the Cable Guy for Radiator Springs and the Wonderful World of Color theme.
Second Way – Sounds of Disneyland Website. I just learned about this website this year, but my understanding is that it has been around for a number of years. The soundsofdisneyland.com is sorted by seventy different areas or themes of the park. Each area/theme then has several songs within that theme. My absolute favorite is Haunted Mansion Holiday – it has eleven different songs from the Nightmare Before Christmas Overlay, including the full ride – “Don’t pull down the bar. It will float down with ease. And remember, no flash photography please!” This site is just amazing and I can’t believe I didn’t know it was out there! I have not added up how long it will take you to get through all of it, but it will be hours and hours.
Third Way – Purchase an Album of Music. If you find yourself wishing you could play Disney music in your car and you have a CD player, consider buying one of the music collections. If you enjoyed the Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection: Disneyland while streaming, you can buy it on Amazon through the affiliate link. As of this writing, all three CDs are $20.49. If you are looking for something a little lighter and not as long, then try Disney Theme Park Classics for $9.99. There are 21 tracks on this CD and include songs from Disneyland, Disney California Adventure Park, and EPCOT. If you are looking for a digital album, my favorite is Disneyland Resort Official Album. I bought this as a CD at Disneyland in 2015, but you can download it as an MP3 from Amazon.
