A Fun & Free Way To Relive The Magic Of Your Disney Park Visits

by SharonKurheg

When you go to a Disney park – any Disney park around the world – it’s designed and intended to immerse you by playing to all 5 senses. You can see the buildings, smell and taste a snack, touch (and purchase!) merchandise, and hear background music that matches whatever themed land, attraction, restaurant or even hotel you’re in.

Disney parks’ background music (BGM) is one of the ways to “bring you back” to your Disney vacation again and again. And best of all, it’s FREE! Back in the 80s and 90s, I used to bring a tape recorder with me, locate a speaker and audiotape the loop for 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of my audiotape. It wasn’t great; it always sounded hollow, and had its own background sounds of the people passing by. But it was something ;-).

Fortunately, technology has improved substantially, so not only are mere mortals like us about to get clean, crisp digital copies of Disneyland and Walt Disney World BGM, thanks to the likes of YouTube, they’re right at our fingertips. Here’s a sampling of what’s out there:
