If we had to put a soundtrack to our family, it would consist of a lot of Disney songs.  Both my husband and I grew up watching the Magical World of Disney and went on trips with our parents to the theme parks.  We honeymooned in Walt Disney World.  From 1990 on we probably have seen (and own!) most of their movies.  And lately around here, it’s all about their cruise ships.

So when the Disney Classics CD Box Set arrived on my door step, I was an eager beaver to get it out and start listening to Every. Single. Song. on each of the 4 CDs.  Count them, there’s 94 of them!!  The four CDs are compiled with songs in this way:  Modern Classics, Theme Park Classics, Timeless Classics, and Television Classics.  Oh and so many of these songs hold memories for me.

I have a hard time picking a #1 favorite disc (or song for that matter!) from the tracks included, but here are some of the songs that I enjoy the most:

The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room from Theme Park Classics.  This was my favorite attraction at Disney World when I was little.  I could have gone through it all day long, and I just loved when we saw the first update of it at Disneyland when they included Zazu and Iago and it made it a bit more relevant for our daughter.

A Whole New World from Modern Classics.  For the longest time Aladdin was my favorite Disney movie (it has recently been usurped by Enchanted).  My husband bought it for me on LaserDisc (if you don’t know what one of those are, Google it, it’s an example of technology gone the way of the dinosaur) for Christmas one year and we snuggled up and watched it Christmas Eve as he had never seen it.  The end scene when that song is playing in the movie, where Jasmine says “Good Night my handsome prince.” and Aladdin responds with “Sleep Well Princess.”  To this day we say that before we go to bed each night.  Yes, we’re that sappy.

Happy Working Song from Modern Classics.  I did mention Enchanted usurped Aladdin as the favorite movie right?  How can you not love a song that makes it more fun to do dishes?  ‘Nuff said.

Circle of Life from Modern Classics.  Because if you’ve ever been on a Disney Cruise and heard Gary DeLena sing “Pen-syl-vane-eeaaaaah; Pink Pajamas Penguins on the Bottom” to the Circle of Life, you’ll NEVER listen to this song the same way again.

When You Wish Upon a Star from Timeless Classics.  Ever heard the Disney cruise ship horns?  That right there my friends is magic!  Yup the first 7 notes from this classic Pinocchio song are the very same that get blown from the Disney cruise ship horns.  No wonder I love listening to this one!

Aloha, E Komo Mai from Television Classics.  In case it wasn’t obvious, that’s from Lilo & Stitch: The Series.  Our daughter was obsessed with Stitch from the first time she saw the movie.  We actually ended up driving around for an hour looking for a parking spot at Downtown Disney just to get her a stuffed Stitch doll for her 8th birthday.  She’s almost 18 and that Stitch plushie still sleeps in her bed 😉  This show played non-stop on our TV as fast as the VCR tape could be rewound (yes, I said VCR).  She’s all grown up now but whenever I hear that song I can picture her little body curled up on the sofa with Stitch right next to her (cue the sobs here).

Anyway, I’m obviously not going to go through all 88 other songs and tell you why I like them or reminisce abou them, I just want you to know that if you want to relive some Disney musical memories, this Disney Classics 4-CD Box set is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.  The actual release date is November 12, 2013, but you can secure your copy now.  (And remember if you pre-order you always get the lower price if it drops when it’s shipped).  If you happen to be in the Disney Parks prior to that date though, be on the lookout for it as you can also get it there!  If you’re already shopping for holiday gifts – this would make a fantastic one for that Disney lover you know, just saying.

Oh and there’s a special bonus for box set purchasers: a new medley of Disney hits by YouTube a capella sensations Peter Hollens and Alex G. Peter and Alex create fully orchestrated songs using only the sounds of their voices. With well over 100 million views on YouTube alone, their sensational approach has excited audiences all over the world.
