View Full Version : Whats your Favorite Attraction Song?

03-21-2007, 05:12 AM
Saw an earlier post about Favorite Disney songs in general from a movie or cartoon and I wanted to get everyones list of favorite songs from any attraction, still running or extinct.

1. Tomorrow's Child (Spaceship Earth)
2. New Horizons (Horizons)
3. There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (Carousel of Progress)
4. Golden Dreams (The American Adventure)
5. We Go On (Illuminations: Reflections of Earth)
6. The Opening & Finale of Fantasmic
7. Space Angels & Planetary Boogie (Sonny Eclipse)
8. Hooray for Hollywood (The Great Movie Ride)
9. Listen to the Land (Living with the Land)
10. Grim, Grinning Ghosts (The Haunted Mansion)

(This list is in no way, shape or form a top ten...just simply stating my songs as they came to me)

One of my favourites is “True Colours” by Cyndi Lauper.
It was used in the pre-show for “Honey I Shrunk the audience.” Even though I believe some of the verses were changed for the Epcot version, just hearing it reminds me of WDW.

So THAT is where I remember that song from. They had it back in 2004, didn't they have some sort of picture show that went with that?

Anyway, back on topic!

1. It's a small world after all......
2. A Pirates Life for me....
3. Original Tiki Room theme
4. Grim Grinnin Ghosts
5. The organ music in Swiss Family Treehouse
6. Golden Dreams *sniffle*
7. Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow
8. Blood on the Saddle..... Momma don't whup little Buford .... All the guys who turn me on turn me down (Country Bears)
9. America Sings! (DL)
10. The Rain, rain, rain came down, down down....

That’s correct.
Kodak sponsored the pavilion and the song played over hundreds of still photographs shown like a continuousness video. I believe the song was also used for an advertising campaign for Kodak, not sure if it was for the US or Asia market.

Another song also played at the same pavilion, which I really liked before HISTA. The song was We Are Here To Change the World by Michael Jackson from the film Captain EO.

I love the song in the Communication Tunnel - as you're coming down backwards from the top of Spaceship Earth.

One of my favourites is “True Colours” by Cyndi Lauper.

3.pirates life for me

Although Pirates has a great song, this debate begins and ends with Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!! My god, I can't get that song out of my head for weeks after hearing it. It's so nostalgic too. I'm so glad they went back to it, and got rid of that other song.

03-21-2007, 09:19 AM
Zip A Dee Doo DA is my favorite. We even sing it at home and change the words around alittle to put all the members of my family in it.

The music that they play at the fountain in EPCOT is also something I look forward to.

03-21-2007, 09:28 AM
It's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow most definiitley! But then again, maybe it's only because it's stuck in my head for weeks after I ride CoP!:mickey:

Listen to the Land - The ORIGINAL version.

My boy grew up bouncing in the back seat
Let's listen to the land we all love,
Natures plan will shine above,
We forget that EPCOT's now old enough that there are adults who feel nostaligic for EPCOT attractions they visited as children.


Did they ever fire the genius who tried to remove Figment?

03-22-2007, 07:16 PM
I love the entire 2-disc set "The Official Walt Disney World Collection". But, I would have to put the "Soarin" track right on top. Imaginging w/each music change, where you're "soarin" over...:cloud9: ! I also love the jams @ RRC. The louder the better!!:thumbsup:

03-22-2007, 07:39 PM
My favourite songs are:

A Pirates Life for Me. :D

03-22-2007, 09:25 PM
Anyone remember Veggie Veggie Fruit Fruit? LOL That was my brother's favorite song along with There was Blood on the Saddle.

Mine would be Yo Ho Yo Ho A Pirates Life for me, Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow, Tapestry of Dreams, the old Main Street Electrical Parade and I can keep going on and on and on....

03-22-2007, 10:53 PM
1. Canada (You're a Lifetime Journey) - I love the opening gong sound followed by the flute then Canada.... music begins and I look forward to seeing the night skiers holding their lanterns - that looks so cool! And I love seeing the forest thicket too.
2. Veggie, Veggie, Fruit-Fruit I still sing that in the land.
3. Illuminations especially the last two movements of the piece.
4. Any Epcot entrance music.
5. The Great Movie Ride, "Horay for Hollywood"
6. Tomorrow (from Annie) in It's Tough to be a bug preshow area. Made me teary because I remember practicing that song a million times on my flute during in my 6th grade year in our "All City" Orchestra - we practiced so much for a one night concert, at the end of which a lot of us cried saying goodbye to each other, (you had to audition and get selected each year so returns were not guaranteed) and we knew we'd never all be together again, it was quite sad, but a great experience all in all.

03-23-2007, 01:48 AM
Great Thread!!!

1. Great big beautiful tomorrow (CoP)
2. Mamma don't whup little Buford (Country Bears)

03-23-2007, 10:23 AM
:sing:There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow .... shining at the end of every day! There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow.... and tomorrow is just a dream away! :sing:

03-23-2007, 10:52 AM

There's so many, but the one from the closing at the American Pavilion, (Golden Dream)??? My mind is gone, but it's the one with the Martin Luther King clip, and One Small Step moon landing.

I think my very favorite tho' is Can You Feel The Love Tonight from the Lion King. I just get totally misty watching that part of the show.:cry:

03-24-2007, 09:41 AM
"There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow"...I LOVE that song!! "In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room" is a VERY close second :mickey:

11-03-2012, 01:26 PM
It's very tough for me to decide between "Zippity-do-dah", "It's a great big beautiful tomorrow" and "When you wish upon a star" (during Wishes).

I love lists like these.

1) Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow
2) Grim Grinning Ghosts and Haunted Mansion full ride music
3) Space Mountain que music
4) Jungle Cruise que music (you really have to go to You Tube and listen to the Jungle Cruise area music loop - it's sort of like an old fashion campy jungle radio station with silly commentary throughout - lots of fun but difficult to fully hear when standing in line
5) Tiki Room
6) Pirates Life for Me
7) Epcot entrance music
9) Music around Carthay Theater in Hollywood Studios
10) Area music in Germany and Norway
I've found You Tube music videos under "Area Loops" for most of these and just listen to them all of the time on my computer. I'm listening to the Jungle Cruise area music loop right now! :mickey:

11-03-2012, 11:59 PM
i can't believe how much I loved reading this post and all the responses! I love some songs more than others, but reading the posts made me realize how much each song adds to the attraction and just thinking/hearing it can almost take you there.

Gotta throw my votes for Pirates, COP, HM, Space Mnt, Future World, and Main Street.

11-06-2012, 08:00 AM
1.There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (Carousel of Progress)

also the background music walking around Epcot is the best.

11-06-2012, 09:01 AM
Definitely There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow! That one is always stuck in my head!
