If you want the actual music used in the rides and attractions, buy one of the official WDW albums. These are Disney song covers by a variety of artists. Etta James makes "It's a Small World" meaningful and beautiful, Tim Curry has his tongue planted firmly in cheek in "The Ballad of Davy Crockett," and Take 6's lush accapella harmonies are outstanding on "When You Wish Upon a Star." As another reviewer said, David Benoit's "Spectromagic Medley" shimmers like the parade itself. Linda Rondstadt and Olivia Newton-John sing pretty straight-forward versions of familiar tunes, and Brian McKnight's sentimental "Remember the Magic," used in Disney World advertising, might bring a tear to your eye.

I love Disney music, but you know what, I do not always want to listen to Disney music. This is a great collection of songs that are interpretations of disney songs done in the artists style. TRULY GREAT BACKGROUND MUSIC FOR LIFE.

The first time I heard this CD, I thought, "Goodness, what have they done to that familiar Disney music?" I was shocked!
Then I listened again, and again, and again. I have the CD in my car and I play it over and over. Tim Curry's version of "Davy Crockett," always makes me laugh. The SpectroMagic parade theme makes me cry remembering the beauty of the parade. I can sing "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" and "It's a Small World."
The first time you hear this CD, you may not really like it. If you play it for the third time, you will love it.

Pros: Some good versions can be found, especially Barenaked Ladies!

Cons: Tim Curry

When I came across this CD, I was in the Walt Disney World resort. The mood is light and happy, and what seems just as light as the mood, is the cash in my wallet. One look at Tinkerbell sprinkling her fairy dust over the Cinderella Castle against a purple sky is all I needed to see before the cash in my wallet floated into the cash registers at Disney World.

Actually, I looked at the back of the CD first very quickly and scanned for artists I liked. There was one or two that appealed to my tastes and I bought this product.

What caught my eye right away is Olivia Newton-John singing Part Of Your World from The Little Mermaid. I love the original from the movie that is sung by Jodi Benson, and I loved Olivia Newton-John's voice. The fact is that Olivia doesn't come close to Jodi Benson's classic version, but it's not without it's charm. The original, if you don't know, is a beautiful ballad with beautiful lyrics that tell the dream of this mermaid, Ariel, of becoming a human with legs instead of fins. Olivia does a nice job singing this song, the problem in my opinion falls with the drumming. For the original version, there are no drums, just an orchestra that accent the lyrics and provide the right drama at the right time. On this Olivia version, the drums give the song an off-time feeling and Olivia's voice comes off sounding awkward.

The year of this release by the way was 1996. 1996 was one of the few years when the hit TV show Friends was huge, and everybody who was a fan knew that The Rembrandts was the band that sings the theme song to the show. So during my quick perusal, their band name caught my eye as well.

I always love having anything with Disney music because I really like going to Disneyland. I mainly bought this because it had the "Pirates' Life for Me" song. Before I received this CD, I thought it was a music book for a piano.

This album wasn't in my frequent rotation for a long time. In fact, I only recently broke this out after I planned my daughter's first trip to Disney World. Though I question some of the interpretations on here, especially the Pointer Sisters' version of "Yo Ho," I must admit that this album has really captured my ear. Take 6, Barenaked Ladies and Patti Austin give wonderful performances of their respective songs. They are the highlights of a mostly good album. One song stands apart from the rest. Brian McKnight's stirring rendition of "Remember the Magic" is a moving experience. It alone makes this album worthy of purchase.

Overall, this album really is a good purchase. It's perfect for packing your bags for Disney World or just a quiet evening at home. All of these songs are fun, uplifting numbers that will quickly brighten the spark of childhood that all adults have somewhere deep inside of them.

I remember when I was very little (can't believe I actually remember it that far), my parents bought me this album on cassette. It reminds me of both times my family and I went to Walt Disney World. I lost the cassette tape years ago, and I was surprised to find this album on CD, so I had to order it. The renditions of classic Disney songs are fantastic. Olivia Newton-John's rendition of "Part of Your World" is just beautiful. The Disney Big Band medley of "The Mickey Mouse Club" and "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" reminds me of my recent trip to WDW. And, "Remember the Magic" as sung by Brian McKnight always brings joyful tears to my eye. Highly recommended by me to any Disney fan out there. It's well worth the money. Now I have something relaxing to listen to while doing homework in my small college dorm room.
