BLOG BANNER

Hi everyone. I have been keeping this journal here on DisneyChris.com since 2013, so that anyone interesting in tracking my audio editing and web design adventures will have an easy means to do so. In 2017 I began doing these updates in video format on my YouTube channel "DisneyChrisDotCom" and Brian Crawford has been providing show notes for these videos. On this blog and in these videos, I discuss all the changes and additions I am making to the website, including an insider's look into all that goes into my audio editing work. I will provide insight on the process of editing my audio tracks, the reasoning behind my artistic choices and the work involved in creating this audio for your listening pleasure. I may also share with you some personal anecdotes along the way. In general, this is to be a "sort-of" look inside my thoughts and the inner workings of how DisneyChris.com is being developed over time. I am also interested in your thoughts and opinions. You are welcome to respond to my blog by contacting me via email at DCLyndon@gmail.com. I will respond to any of your emailed questions or comments either within the blog or in a private email response. Just let me know if you choose to be anonymous. You can scroll to the bottom of this page to go back in time to read up on what you may have missed in the past, or you can just start with today's blog post and read or watch the videos from here forward. The choice is yours. Enjoy!

Coming in September 2021

JIMINY CRICKETS! PODCAST.  2021 marks the 70th anniversary of Walt Disney’s 13th full length animated classic, Alice in Wonderland and so we’ve dedicated two episodes to celebrate this classic.  In the first installment, Episode 144, we discuss the author Lewis Carroll and how his story influenced Walt Disney’s early animation career and the eventual creation of a theatrical feature.  We then discuss the plot of the film and how it compares to the literary classic, stopping along the way to discuss the incredible voice cast.  Later this month we’ll continue the podcast where we left off in Episode 144 and share our favorite characters, scenes and songs!

Also last month I shared the first half of our Disneyland trip on our Patreon-only podcast, Down the Rabbit Hole.  However, Chris decided to open this episode up to everyone to encourage more listeners to join Patreon.  This first installment I share our day at Disneyland and discuss how much we enjoyed touring the park without fast passes!  On our next episode of Down the Rabbit Hole I share our day at California Adventure and our first ever visit to Avenger’s Campus. 

Recently we released our fifth episode of the Magical Music of Walt Disney.  Our final episode of this series will include music chosen by YOU!  We are giving our listeners the chance to include their favorite songs that weren’t on the previous five episodes!  Send us your favorites by emailing us at disneychrisdotcom@gmail.com or post a comment to our Facebook or Instagram account (@disneychris_jc_podcast).  Look for this bonus episode to be released in October! 

DATELINE JIMINY CRICKETS!  In our August episode of Dateline Jiminy Crickets Chris, Ruthie and I shared several special segments to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World, including an opening day Top 10 List, an Encyclopedia topic on the Mickey Mouse Revue, an opening day attraction at the Magic Kingdom; and an overview of the exciting things planned for the 50th Birthday at the Florida resort. We continue the episode sharing some of the things we have recently been watching, and conclude by reading listener comments.

SONG OF THE DAY – To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World, Chris is bringing us a special daily song from the vacation capital of the world.  This is sure to be an enchanting musical journey through the history of our favorite Florida Disney destination!  Visit DisneyChris.com every day for this unique celebration!

PODCAST.  We didn’t release a history podcast in May, but you can still go back and relisten to our past episodes including our most recent look at all things Winnie the Pooh.  Listen to Part 1 and Part 2 if you haven’t already, and enjoy this fun and informative trip through the Hundred Acre Wood!  While on the podcast channel check out other past episodes including a look at Disney’s California Adventure as it existed during its opening year as well as powerhouse episodes featuring Disney stars Hayley Mills and Dean Jones!  I’m a sucker for relistening to past episodes as I pick up on things that I missed the last time.  I’m not even ashamed to say I’ve listen to the Country Bear Jamboree episode seven times already…..

This month listen to Episode 140 which is the fourth in a five-part series featuring the Magical Music of Walt Disney.  This installment is Volume 4 - Gearing Up for a Renaissance 1972-1991 where we visit some of the great music from EPCOT, Pete’s Dragon and the early renaissance films like The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast!  Patreon subscribers, regardless of tier, will receive all the songs in mp3 format each time a new episode is released!  Here’s that Patreon link again: https://www.patreon.com/DisneyChris

DATELINE JIMINY CRICKETS!  The May episode of Dateline featured Chris and Ruthie sharing some news from Disneyland’s reopening (with a special focus on recent Haunted Mansion additions and updates) and a top 10 featuring their favorite Disneyland landmarks.  They also host a heartfelt memoriam to Disney legends we’ve lost recently.  In June, Dateline will return with Ruthie and I sharing our thoughts on the latest Disney film release, Cruella and Chris and Ruthie will announce their top 10 Disney patriotic live-action films!  Stay tuned to Chris’ social media channels to be the first to know when it’s available!

SONG OF THE DAY – For June Chris has tons of Donald Duck and Dad songs to start your day off with a fun dose of Disney music!  Be sure to visit the Song of the Day page to enjoy this great treat Chris provides daily!

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Jump to 14:23 for the beginning of the monthly update where Chris discusses (and I interject with some lively banter…sort of) the additional Tomorrowland tracks he added to Chapter 17.  In this update we also discuss music that may have existed in two Disneyland areas that never materialized: Discovery Bay, which was to be built where Galaxy’s Edge is today; and Tomorrowland 2055, an update to Tomorrowland that was never realized.  I’ve also listed the tracks added during our mid-month update in May (those aren’t discussed in this video, but you can go back to that vlog and here those updates here: Disneyland Audio Tour May 2021 Mid Month Update - YouTube).  The mid-month update consisted of mostly material from Chapter 15!

Show Notes

by Brian Crawford

Happy Mothers Day!

Hope everyone is having a great spring so far!  Sorry for missing the notes last month, it’s been crazy at work, not to mention the heffalump-sized amount of research for the Winnie the Pooh podcast we recently released.  That kept all of us busy as a bunch of bees!  Well, for this month’s Disneyland Magical Audio Tour vlog Chris finished a project that he’s finally been able to dedicate the time and effort necessary to complete it: The Disneyland Railroad tracks!  OK, not the actual steel rails and wooden ties, but the narration and sound effects of one of the most magical attractions in Disneyland history: The Grand Circle Tour.  First, let’s talk Patreon and what’s coming up this month!

Coming in May 2021

JIMINY CRICKETS! PODCAST.  In April we released both parts of our Winnie the Pooh deep dive podcast.  This was a lot of fun to research and to record and we hope that all our friends and fans will take the time to enjoy our discussion and the rich musical history of this beloved franchise!  It truly was a labor of love.  Listen to Part 1 and Part 2 today! 

This month listen to Episode 139 which is the third in a five-part series featuring the Magical Music of Walt Disney.  Volume 3 - The Legacy of Walt Disney 1963-1973 was released on May 4th and is ready for you to enjoy these timeless pieces of Disney music history.  I’m listening to this wonderful compilation as I type up these notes!  Patreon subscribers, regardless of tier, will receive all the songs in mp3 format each time a new episode is released!  Here’s that Patreon link again: https://www.patreon.com/DisneyChris

DATELINE JIMINY CRICKETS!  It’s been a while since we released an episode of Dateline.  There was no episode in April, but the one in March was very special!  After we did a countdown of our favorite Disney dog films we had the opportunity to chat with Disney Live-Action film actor, Michael McGreevey!  Michael starred as the character Schuyler alongside Kurt Russell in the Dexter Riley films as well as working with Dean Jones on Snowball Express and The Shaggy D.A.!  We discuss his time working at the Walt Disney studio and he shares some wonderful memories of meeting Walt and Annette!  We also talk about his appearances on the Disneyland Anthology television series including Sammy the Way Out Seal, For the Love of Willadean and many more!  Click here to listen to this magical and nostalgic look back at a wonderful time in Disney history.  Chris and Ruthie plan to record the May episode of Dateline in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned to Chris’ social media channels to be the first to know when it’s available!

SONG OF THE DAY – For May Chris will be celebrating Mother’s Day for the first part of the month and I’m sure he has some wonderful musical surprises for the rest of month!  Be sure to visit the Song of the Day page to enjoy this great treat Chris provides daily!

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Jump to 13:50 for the beginning of the monthly update where Chris discusses the new “tracks” he added during the month of April!  He spent a ridiculous amount of time cleaning up the Royal Theatre – Beauty and the Beast Fantasy Faire track; lots of background noise to deal with so it is very time consuming.  The Tangled track is already complete and he’ll tackle the Frozen version of this entertaining show later.  Aside from a special track to represent the “A Walk in Walt’s Footsteps” guided tour, all the other tracks he worked on were versions of the Grand Circle Tour of the Disneyland Railroad.  These have been a much-requested addition to the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour and Chris finally had everything he needed, plus the time to make it just perfect!  Here are all the tracks he added:

Chapter 2 – The Disneyland Town Square

TRK15 A Walk in Walt's Footsteps - Guided Tour

TRK94 Disneyland Railroad - 1974 Grand Circle Tour

TRK95 Disneyland Railroad - Bicentennial Grand Circle Tour

TRK96 Disneyland Railroad - 1980's Grand Circle Tour

TRK97 Disneyland Railroad - 1990's Grand Circle Tour

TRK98 Disneyland Railroad - 2015 Grand Circle Tour

TRK99 Disneyland Railroad - 2017 Grand Circle Tour

Chapter 4 – Central Plaza

TRK64 The Royal Theatre - Beauty & the Beast

Chapter 12 – The New Fantasyland

TRK111 The Royal Theatre - Beauty & the Beast - Same Track as Chapter 4

Chapter14 – Disneyland Showtime 

TRK145 Fantasy Faire Royal Theatre - Beauty and the Beast - Same Track as Chapter 4

That will do it for the month of May!  Enjoy conducting your way through the Disneyland Railroad tracks that Chris has so masterfully engineered!  I’ll show myself out until next month :)

JIMINY CRICKETS! PODCAST – In December, Chris and Ruthie wrapped up the 50th anniversary tribute to The Aristocats by releasing Part 2 of their look back on this great, musical film.  If you haven’t had a chance, listen to Episode 131 on Apple Podcasts or by visiting this link

In January Chris invited me to join Ruthie in a special podcast featuring one of Disney’s greatest live-action film actors, Dean Jones!  This one ended up being a two-parter as well, because you just can’t stop talking about all the great things Dean Jones did on Disney film…hilarious stuff, folks!  Part 1 (Episode 132) was released on January 25th and can be enjoyed by clicking here or by subscribing to Chris’ podcast channel on Apple podcasts.  Part 2 will be released right around Valentine’s Day! By the way, if you are an avid listener on Apple please leave us a five-star review and share the podcast with your friends via social media!

Chris has also released Episode 133, the first of five very special bonus music episodes that we at Jiminy Crickets are delighted to present to you throughout 2021. This special series will be called "The Magical Music of Walt Disney" and will span the decades to bring you the 150 most iconic Disney tunes of all time. Our first episode contains 30 classic songs and begins at the very beginning with the soundtrack to the very first synchronized sound cartoon, 1928's "Steamboat Willie" and concludes with three enchanted songs from Walt Disney's 13th full length animated classic, "Alice in Wonderland."  All Patreon subscribers, regardless of tier, will receive a folder of mp3 files containing all the songs from this episode, and from future episodes! 

DATELINE JIMINY CRICKETS!  After a two-month hiatus, Dateline Jiminy Crickets returned for our first show of 2021. DisneyChris and Ruthie begin by honoring five Hollywood legends affiliated with the Walt Disney organization that we have lost over the past seven months. They then share their first Top 10 rankings for 2021, a list full of firsts. For a special Encyclopedia segment, they discuss the Tournament of Roses Parade and Disney’s participation in that annual event, one that Ruthie has enjoyed time and time again growing up near Pasadena.  Ruthie also shares her initial thoughts on the Disney/Pixar animated feature "Soul,” and the show concludes as she and Chris discuss a little more of this and that.  Stay tuned to Chris’ social media sites to hear when Dateline Jiminy Crickets is released for February!

One last note: The Jiminy Crickets! Podcast has teamed up with The Roarbots and has become a featured show on their podcast network.  Head over to The Roarbots and join in the celebration of geek culture! We provide the Disney aspect of it!

SONG OF THE DAY – All February long Chris will be posting a romantic song sure to please all those Disney lovers out there.  Be sure to visit the Song of the Day page to keep that amorous feeling all month long!

Lol!  Last week Chris also selected the Disney Song of the Year for 2020.  This time it is the attraction theme song to Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway: Nothing Can Stop Us Now.  Click here and scroll down to 2020 to enjoy this joyful tune!  Thanks to Cricketeer, Joshua Smith for suggesting this song!  I can’t wait to experience this attraction on my next visit to Walt Disney World!

HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS – In addition to the Song of the Day you can find more great Disneyland Christmas music in Chapter 23: Christmas Time in Disneyland!  Hours and hours of great holiday sounds from the Happiest Place on Earth!  We all can’t get to Disneyland this Christmas season, so enjoying the sounds from the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour is the next best thing!  Finally, you can find great Christmas images featuring pictures from around Disneyland and the world of Disney animation and art over on our Instagram page: @disneychris_jc_podcast!

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Well, the plan was for Chris to add a ton of new tracks, but that didn’t happen as Chris has been focused on getting healthy.  That just means the January update will be full of new content!  If you’ve been following Chris on Facebook you’ve seen the updates flying in!  That said, Chris did have some time recently to add 10 tracks to Chapter 15: Looking Back at Tomorrow.  Here is a list of the new audio:

Track 2: Disneyland Song Parade – Tomorrowland Song

Track 3: Your Trip to Disneyland on Records – Tomorrowland

Track 9: Disneyland the Park – Tomorrowland

From the section, “From Tomorrowland – The Disneyland TV Series”:

That will do it for the December update!  I hope all of you had a wondrous and joyous holiday season and Chris would like to thank all of you for your continued support and understanding during this difficult time as he gets his health back on track.  The good news is that he’s feeling great recently and has been able to continue his work!  Stay safe everyone!

JIMINY CRICKETS! PODCAST -- During the month of October Chris, Ruthie and guest, Brian (me!! LOL!) released a two-part podcast celebrating the accomplishments of the legendary Disney child and teen-age star, Hayley Mills.  You can enjoy a total of six hours of discussion of her films and television shows and enjoy listening to some popular and rarely heard songs sung by Hayley and her fellow Disney pals.  Click here to listen to both episodes!  Later this month Chris will join the “co-hostess with the mostest”, Ruthie, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney’s 20th animated film, The Aristocats!  In December Chris and Ruthie plan to share their favorite Disney Christmas and Holiday songs in fun-filled podcast full of music and good cheer.  Like last year, Chris will provide the playlist to all of his Patreon and PayPal supporters!

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Chris has been working very hard preparing the audio tour for a flood of new tracks.  At the time of me writing these notes (Nov 7th) he has already released 30 new tracks with many, many more to come.  Jumping to 10:00 in the vlog, Chris noted a few things we can enjoy in the tour now: first, it’s Mickey’s birthday this month so if you are looking for Mickey Mouse songs head over the Chapter 25: Disneyland Anniversaries to find a ton of songs to get you in the mood for Mickey! Secondly, Chris has moved all of the Thanksgiving related songs to the top of Chapter 24: Holiday Time in Disneyland for your Thanksgiving listening enjoyment and convenience!

Skipping to 12:45 Chris goes over his current To-Do list which is comprised of 250 easy-to-add tracks.  He chose 20 tracks from Chapters 7-18 that only require some minimal editing and setting up.  So expect to see a tidal wave of new content in the coming weeks and months.  Next month’s Disneyland Magical Audio Tour vlog will explain all of these new additions, and there will be a lot so I have my work cut out for me next month in summarizing them!  To end the update (16:30) Chris shows us his Master To-Do list and shows what tracks he’s working on in chapters 1-6 and 19-27.  That will do it for this update.  As always, Chris is very appreciative of his friends and listeners and would like to give all of you a sincere thank you for your continued support!  Happy Holidays everyone!

On the Jiminy Crickets! Podcast channel Chris released a new episode yesterday: Episode 126: Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland.  All aboard the mine train!  In this episode DisneyChris and Ruthie pay tribute to one of the greatest extinct Disney theme park attractions of all time, the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland. First you will learn all about the history of this former Disneyland 'E' Ticket, and then take a virtual ride through the entire attraction, with all of its authentic original sound effects.

You can also go back and enjoy past shows like Episode 125 where Chris and guest co-host, Brian Crawford celebrate the 65th anniversary of Lady and the Tramp!  Coming later this month is an episode I’m sure we’ll look forward to and enjoy: A Tribute to Hayley Mills!  This year is the 60th anniversary of the live-action classic, Pollyanna so join us as we celebrate this film and all the others Hayley has done for the Disney company. 

Coming up this month for Song of the Day is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious September!  It’s a month-long tribute to Dick and Bob Sherman, songwriters for the Disney Company (a.k.a. The Sherman Brothers).  Visit www.disneychris.com each day or check Facebook (Chris Lyndon) for links to the fabulous songs written by the famous Disney songwriting duo!

Chris and Ruthie took August off, but not to worry, around September 15th there will be a new episode of Dateline Jiminy Crickets chock full of Disney news and fun and engaging segments highlighting music, films, theme parks and Disney characters.  For Patreon subscribers at the $5 level or higher expect a new Down the Rabbit Hole podcast as well.  You should have received a link to the August podcast with your monthly rewards email.  Remember to stay connected to find out when new content (Podcasts, Song of the Day, New Disneyland Magical Tour Audio tracks) is released!  On Facebook: Chris Lyndon, Twitter: @DisneyChris73 and on Instagram: @disneychris_jc_podcast. 

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Chris has been remarkably busy updating the site in August.  There are some new audio additions, but the bulk of the work has been in preparation of adding a TON of placeholder tracks to Chapter 7 through Chapter 18.  Let’s look at the new audio additions first and then I’ll summarize the prep work that has kept Chris from wasting away the day watching cat videos on YouTube. 

Chapter 2: Hometown USA

Track 7: Mickey Mouse Club Newsreel – Horse Drawn Street Cars.  This short segment on the popular 1950s daytime serial featured news for children, by children; featured here is the popular Main Street vehicle attraction.

Track 86: Mickey Mouse Club Newsreel – Disneyland and Santa Fe R.R.  Fantastic track showcasing the legendary Grand Circle Tour of Walt’s Magic Kingdom as told by our friends at the Mickey Mouse Club.

Track 106: Primeval World Diorama – Sound Effects.  All the unique sound effects (without the accompanying music) from the visually stunning segment of the Grand Circle Tour.

Chapter 3: Meet Me Down on Main Street

Track 9: Mickey Mouse Club Newsreel – Horse Drawn Street Cars.  Track added from Chapter 2.

Track 58: Chinatown – Tea Room Restaurant.  Chris added an additional song from this planned Main Street eatery that never came to fruition.

Chapter 6: Tropical Regions of the World

Track 79: Mickey Mouse Club Newsreel – Jungle River Ride.  Another newsreel addition, this time in Adventureland aboard the Jungle Cruise!

Track 115: Disney Character Training – Jungle Book Friends.  Cast Member training audio featuring characters from the 1967 animated film, The Jungle Book.

Track 116: Inspired by Adventure – Songs from Disney Animated Classics.  Chris added a couple things from a couple of 1940s Goofy shorts that take place in Africa.

Chapter 23: Christmas Time in Disneyland

Track 80: Tokyo Disneyland – Jingle Bell Jamboree.  Tokyo Disneyland’s take on the popular Christmas version of the Country Bear Jamboree.  Despite being absent from the parks in the U.S. this beloved holiday classic still lives in Tokyo!

Chapter 27: Disneyland in TV Land

Track 3: Disneyland Episode 1 – The Disneyland Story.  Much improved, clear and crisp audio of the historic first broadcast of the Disneyland Anthology Television Series.

Track 17: Mickey Mouse Club Newsreels: Dateline Disneyland.  A compilation track of all the newsreel segments that featured places in Disneyland.

Track 68: The Wonderful World of Disney Main Title 2015.  The final edition of the stirring main theme to the long running Disneyland Anthology Television Series.

As I mentioned, Chris has been doing a significant amount of work in Chapters 7 through 18; this includes prepping the chapters for the insertion of new tracks to include liner notes and adding or updating the accompanying images.  In the video Chris walks us through Chapters 7, 8 and 17 to give us a general idea and scope of the project.  You can see all the great new additions for yourself by visiting each of these three chapters.  I’m most excited for the addition of the Mystic Manor soundtrack from Hong Kong Disneyland!  There is a great deal of audio to enjoy in these chapters today, sprinkled in with a ton of “Coming Soon” tracks.  Chris will provide updates too, when each of these new additions will be available for listening. 

There are some interesting additions to Chapter 17 in which two new sections will feature audio from two areas that were never built in Disneyland: Discovery Bay and Tomorrowland 2055.  These new sections will highlight audio that was planned for, but never released due to these areas of Disneyland never coming to light. 

That’s all for this update!  Thanks again for all your wonderful support and dedication to the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour and the podcasts!  Stay healthy, safe and magical and we’ll be back in October for another spooky update!

Celebrate Summer!

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer season and staying safe!  We know it’s been tough out there and visits to the parks and other Disney locations have been limited.  Hopefully, the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour and the podcasts the team creates are bringing you some Disney joy this summer!  Keep your hopes up and let’s see what’s new with Disney Chris this month!

Back on July 4th Chris and Ruthie released Episode 124 of the Jiminy Crickets! Podcast with an outstanding look at the history, attractions and music of The Rivers of America!  If you haven’t had a chance to listen, click the link above to experience this fascinating look into the history and music of this magical area!  Episode 125 has also just been released as Chris and guest co-host, Brian Crawford celebrate the 65th anniversary of Lady and the Tramp!  Enjoy this deep dive into the beautifully animated film supported by some of the most magical music to accompany a Disney film!  Later this month Ruthie will be back to record Episode 126, Nature’s Wonderland!  

The August song of the day features great music that is “Almost Disney”.  This fun playlist will feature songs that weren’t produced by Disney or Buena Vista Records, but feature prominently in the parks, films and elsewhere in the Disney community!  A new song will be presented each day!  For Patreon and PayPal subscribers Chris will happily share this playlist with you!  

A new episode of Dateline Jiminy Crickets will be airing soon and expect some exciting news updates from all around the parks and the Walt Disney Company!  Stay tuned to all of Disney Chris’ social media sites to find out when Dateline, the Nature’s Wonderland podcast and new songs of the day are released: Facebook: Chris Lyndon, Twitter: @DisneyChris73, Instagram: @disneychris_jc_podcast.  Patreon subscribers will also be notified when a new Down the Rabbit Hole podcast is released.  Last month Chris and Ruthie asked each other some difficult Disney questions that resulted in some entertaining conversation, affording us the opportunity to get to know our favorite podcast hosts better!

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Chris didn’t add any new audio to the tour in July but has been busy with a huge project related to the site.  If you recall, last month Chris was a little burned out adding and editing content to Chapters 1-6 and 19-27.  So he decided to shift his focus a bit, spending considerable time and effort during the last month doing research and image hunting to organize updated track lists for the “middle chapters”, that is, Chapters 7-18.  When this is all completed Chris will have added more than 1,000 additional tracks to the audio tour, which is why he’s been promoting Patreon a lot recently.  This isn’t going to be an inexpensive effort, as more web hosting fees will be incurred.  Jump to 22:00 in the video to get an in-depth look at what this research entailed.

During the video Chris requested some information from his friends regarding a few exhibits in Innoventions over the years.  He is looking for any information (to include images and audio) for the following:

Tom Morrow Music – Lonesome Road; WD-40 – Robot Exhibit; Compaq Convergence Factory Tour; AT&T – Hyperlink Hopscotch; Pioneer – Virtual Resort; Nanooze Labs

If you have any images of Innoventions (from it’s inception to closure in 2015) that you’d feel comfortable sharing please email them to dclyndon@gmail.com.  In general, if you are an Innoventions expert send Chris an email!

That’s all for August Disney music fans!  Drop Chris a note on Facebook or Instagram and let him know how much you appreciate his efforts, and if you can, consider a financial contribution as Chris undertakes one of his biggest updates ever to the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour.

Happy Birthday, America!  You are 244 years old, but not to be outdone, Disneyland celebrates its 65th anniversary in a couple of weeks.  It’s hard to believe no guests will be on hand inside Disneyland park to celebrate this year.  Crazy times, but here’s hoping we can all safely return to Disneyland soon.  For now, we can all enjoy the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour and all the new content Chris has added this month!  Let’s get to the update!

Just a couple days ago Chris and Ruthie released Episode 124 of the Jiminy Crickets! Podcast with an outstanding look at the history, attractions and music of The Rivers of America!  Don’t miss this unique and thoroughly enjoyable look into the centerpiece of Frontierland in Disneyland.  They also spend time looking at other Rivers of America areas in the Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris.  Also coming later this month Chris and Ruthie celebrate the 65th anniversary of Lady and the Tramp!  You don’t want to miss this one either!

July Song of the Day will celebrate both big anniversaries in America!  First to celebrate Independence Day:  beginning July 1st through the 10th we can enjoy patriotic songs featured in Disneyland’s celebrations.  From July 11th to the 20th we will commemorate Disneyland’s milestone 65th anniversary with some fun songs.  As always you can visit The Holiday Time in Disneyland page to listen to more 4th of July tunes!

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Chris, with the help of a good friend, has updated and streamlined the DMAT index page!  The new page makes it simple to find what’s coming soon (highlighted in RED) and what’s new (highlighted in GREEN).  One other neat feature of the index page is a link to Chris’ wish list.  Here you can find all of the audio that Chris would like to obtain and add to the audio tour.  Scan the list and if you have some usable content Chris will credit you on the site!

Fans of the site know that Chris has spent a considerable amount of time adding and updating tracks to Chapters 1 through 6 and 19 through 27.  He got a little burned out recently so decided to turn his attention to chapters 7 through 10, making a list of what he’d like to add and update in these chapters.  He also spent considerable time and effort researching and locating brilliant thumbnail photos to go along with the new tracks in the works.  We all know this is a labor of love and we are indebted to Chris for his efforts in bringing this magical gift to all Disneyland fans!  Here is what’s new:

Chapter 3: Meet Me Down on Main Street

Track 57: Chinatown – Tea Room Restaurant.  Audio from an unbuilt attraction that was to feature an audio-animatronic Confucius sharing words of wisdom with guests over delicious, hot tea.

Chapter 4: The Heart of Disneyland

Chris added several tracks from Disneyland after Dark to this chapter.  The latest is:

Track 52: Carnation Plaza Gardens Entertainment – Jack Wagner.  The legendary voice of Disneyland shares all the daytime and nighttime entertainment happening in the historical and magical venue.

Chapter 5: I Love a Parade

Track 122: Magic Happens Parade.  Audio from Disneyland’s latest parade; all edited and cleaned up for your enjoyment!

Chapter 2: Hometown USA

Track 12: Disneyland City Hall – Phone Greetings.  Birthday, Anniversary and special event greeting given over the phone from Disney characters

Track 13: A Walk in Walt’s Footsteps – Firehouse Apartment Guided Tour.  Join yours truly as I give you an intimate look at Walt’s private apartment perched above the Firehouse in Town Square.  

Track 15: Disneyland Firehouse – Edison Gramophone.  Chris added a new “cylinder” to Walt’s classic gramophone.  If anyone has a list of the cylinders that are in Walt’s apartment now please let Chris know!  He’d love to add more!

Track 18: Dapper Dans – Town Square Performance.  Chris cleaned up this fun medley of Disney songs.

Track 54: The Walt Disney Story.  Improved audio and clarity

Track 59: Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln.  An authentic, restored presentation of the original classic Town Square attraction.

Track 63: Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln.  This is the 2009 and current version using the original source audio.  Fantastic crisp, clean performance!

Track 82: Disney Family Album: Ward Kimball – Grizzly Flats Railroad.  An audio excerpt from the popular Disney Channel series showcasing Ward’s private home railroad.

Track 100: Disneyland Goes to the World’s Fair – Ford Magic Skyway.  A truly superb segment from the Wonderful World of Color television episode featuring this popular bygone attraction.

Podcast with an outstanding look at the history, attractions and music of The Rivers of America!  Don’t miss this unique and thoroughly enjoyable look into the centerpiece of Frontierland in Disneyland.  They also spend time looking at other Rivers of America areas in the Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris.  Also coming later this month Chris and Ruthie celebrate the 65th anniversary of Lady and the Tramp!  You don’t want to miss this one either!

July Song of the Day will celebrate both big anniversaries in America!  First to celebrate Independence Day:  beginning July 1st through the 10th we can enjoy patriotic songs featured in Disneyland’s celebrations.  From July 11th to the 20th we will commemorate Disneyland’s milestone 65th anniversary with some fun songs.  As always you can visit The Holiday Time in Disneyland page to listen to more 4th of July tunes!

A new episode of Dateline Jiminy Crickets will be airing soon and expect some exciting news updates from all around the parks and the Walt Disney Company!  Stay tuned to all of Disney Chris’s social media sites to find out when Dateline, the Lady and the Tramp podcast and new songs of the day are released: Facebook: Chris Lyndon, Twitter: @DisneyChris73, Instagram: @disneychris_jc_podcast.  Patreon subscribers will also be notified when a new Down the Rabbit Hole podcast is released.  Last month Chris, Ruthie and myself did a deep dive on all the Disney happenings of 1975!

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Chris, with the help of a good friend, has updated and streamlined the DMAT index page!  The new page makes it simple to find what’s coming soon (highlighted in RED) and what’s new (highlighted in GREEN).  One other neat feature of the index page is a link to Chris’ wish list.  Here you can find all of the audio that Chris would like to obtain and add to the audio tour.  Scan the list and if you have some usable content Chris will credit you on the site!

Fans of the site know that Chris has spent a considerable amount of time adding and updating tracks to Chapters 1 through 6 and 19 through 27.  He got a little burned out recently so decided to turn his attention to chapters 7 through 10, making a list of what he’d like to add and update in these chapters.  He also spent considerable time and effort researching and locating brilliant thumbnail photos to go along with the new tracks in the works.  We all know this is a labor of love and we are indebted to Chris for his efforts in bringing this magical gift to all Disneyland fans!  Here is what’s new:

Chapter 3: Meet Me Down on Main Street

Track 57: Chinatown – Tea Room Restaurant.  Audio from an unbuilt attraction that was to feature an audio-animatronic Confucius sharing words of wisdom with guests over delicious, hot tea.

Chapter 4: The Heart of Disneyland

Chris added several tracks from Disneyland after Dark to this chapter.  The latest is:

Track 52: Carnation Plaza Gardens Entertainment – Jack Wagner.  The legendary voice of Disneyland shares all the daytime and nighttime entertainment happening in the historical and magical venue.

Chapter 5: I Love a Parade

Track 122: Magic Happens Parade.  Audio from Disneyland’s latest parade; all edited and cleaned up for your enjoyment!

Chapter 2: Hometown USA

Track 12: Disneyland City Hall – Phone Greetings.  Birthday, Anniversary and special event greeting given over the phone from Disney characters

Track 13: A Walk in Walt’s Footsteps – Firehouse Apartment Guided Tour.  Join yours truly as I give you an intimate look at Walt’s private apartment perched above the Firehouse in Town Square.  

Track 15: Disneyland Firehouse – Edison Gramophone.  Chris added a new “cylinder” to Walt’s classic gramophone.  If anyone has a list of the cylinders that are in Walt’s apartment now please let Chris know!  He’d love to add more!

Track 18: Dapper Dans – Town Square Performance.  Chris cleaned up this fun medley of Disney songs.

Track 54: The Walt Disney Story.  Improved audio and clarity

Track 59: Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln.  An authentic, restored presentation of the original classic Town Square attraction.

Track 63: Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln.  This is the 2009 and current version using the original source audio.  Fantastic crisp, clean performance!

Track 82: Disney Family Album: Ward Kimball – Grizzly Flats Railroad.  An audio excerpt from the popular Disney Channel series showcasing Ward’s private home railroad.

Track 100: Disneyland Goes to the World’s Fair – Ford Magic Skyway.  A truly superb segment from the Wonderful World of Color television episode featuring this popular bygone attraction.

Podcast has some great historical programming with the most recent episode being a celebration of Space Mountain’s 45th anniversary.   Listen to Episode 118 today!  Coming in late February/early March is episode 119, Pinocchio!  Join Chris and Ruthie as they bring you history and behind the scenes content from Walt Disney’s second full-length feature animated film. 

On Chris’ YouTube channel, DisneyChrisDotCom you can enjoy Dateline Jiminy Crickets, a news format podcast that is usually released the first week of each month.  For the best listening experience visit the YouTube channel for Chris and Ruthie’s take on the latest and greatest news from all corners of the Walt Disney Company.

Down the Rabbit Hole is an exclusive podcast for Patreon subscribers; scroll up to see how you can help Chris financially support his passion of bringing high-quality Disneyland audio to all of his friends!  This podcast is an informal, impromptu discussion (which can sometimes get a bit controversial…so if you’re into Disney drama be sure to listen!) between Chris, Ruthie and sometimes a special guest (ahem…me).  Last January we discussed the new Star Wars offerings at the Disney Parks and on Disney+.  For the February installment Chris and Ruthie discussed the Academy Awards and the new Disney movies coming to theaters in 2020.

The Song of the Day for February was a bit different than usual.  Instead of featuring Disney love songs, Chris decided to spotlight the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour!  Everyday throughout February Chris shared a track from one of the 27 chapters…plus a couple surprises since there are 29 days in February this year!  Never fear, lovebirds, if you do want to get your romantic Disney fix just visit the Song of the Day Archive to listen to songs from February 2018 and February 2019.  You can also visit Holiday Time in Disneyland to hear romantic music from Disneyland, including a new track titled, “Disneyland After Dark – Sweethearts Night!

Coming in March 2020

Song of the Day in March will feature music celebrating St. Patrick’s Day for the time period 3/10 – 3/17.  To welcome the new season Chris will feature songs from 3/18 – 3/22 with a special spring theme! 

Jiminy Crickets! Podcast will release Episode 119, Pinocchio soon.  It has been delayed a couple of weeks due to a medical emergency, but Chris is fine now so not to worry!  Also this month Episode 120 celebrating the 70th anniversary of Walt Disney’s 1950 full-length animated feature, Cinderella! 

On Chris’ YouTube channel get ready for Chris and Ruthie’s take on the latest and greatest news from all corners of the Walt Disney Company.  February was a huge news month so be sure to tune in to this podcast to hear how Chris and Ruthie feel about the recent proceedings!

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Jiminy Crickets! Podcast just released thier latest episode:  Disneyland '59.  Join Chris and Ruthie as they share memories, history and interesting facts from one of the most magical summers in Disneyland history.  The next podcast will celebrate the 45th anniversary of everyone's favorite space travel attraction: Space Mountain!

Chris and Ruthie will release another Down the Rabbit Hole podcast for all Patreon subscribers at the $5 level or higher.  These fun, informative and completely off the cuff podcasts are recorded each month!

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Jump to 17:45 in the video for a complete breakdown of everything Chris is working on in Chapters 1-6 and 27.  Here is a quick preview of some of the tracks that will be added/improved in the coming month:

Chapter 1 Track 29 "Disneyland 10th Anniversary" (cleaning up some background noise)

Chapter 2 Track 10 "Disneyland Guided Tour - Welcome to Disneyland"

Chapter 2 Track 15 "Disneyland Firehouse - A Walk in Walt's Footsteps Guided Tour"

Plus several Disneyland Railroad audio tracks!!!

What's on the Docket:   

Chapter 6 Track 64 "Sounds of the Jungle Cruise"

Chapter 2 Track 54 "The Walt Disney Story"

Chapter 6 Track 43 "Aladdin's Oasis Dinner Show"

Chapter 6 Track 104 "Indiana Jones Adventure - Temple of the Forbidden Eye"

In Search of Audio

Chris is looking for some special audio to complete work on three exciting tracks:  

Disneyland Railroad Authentic bells and whistles, specifically from the C.K. Holliday engine.  The most desirable recording would be if a friend of the site went to Disneyland in person and recorded the audio with minimal background noise.  

Walk in Walt's Footsteps  audio clips used during tour.  This would involve someone that has firsthand knowledge of all the audio clips played during the tour.  Ideally someone who can take the tour and make specific notes and/or a recording of the audio.

Enchanted Tiki Room Conch Shell and Tiki Drums.  Chris is looking for someone to record all of the transitional music between each Tiki god's presentation in the pre-show.

Jungle Cruise Skipper needed!  Looking for someone to deliver the dialogue of a Jungle Cruise skipper.  Acting talent and comedic timing experience preferred; male within a pleasant speaking voice preferred as Chris will attempt to replicate the vintage Jungle Cruise experience back when all skippers were male.  

That's all for this update!  Be sure to follow Chris on all his social media accounts to stay up to date on all the new audio releases to the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour.  Facebook: Chris Lyndon, Twitter: @DisneyChris73, Instagram: @disneychris_jc_podcast

Jiminy Crickets! Podcast

Coming up this month on the podcast is a special episode titled "Disneyland '59".  Chris and Ruthie will explore the three E-ticket attractions that debuted at Disneyland (and all the fanfare and history behind them) in the summer of 1959.  

Three Holidays This Month!

In November Disney fans celebrate three holidays: Dapper Day, Mickey's birthday and of course Thanksgiving.  For Dapper Day Chris has created a new playlist called "Songs to Dapper Your Day By". This 94-minute, 34-track playlist features fashion related show tunes from the 1930s to the 1960s. Go listen on the Jiminy Crickets podcast homepage here and while you're there make sure to listen to the recent episode celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland!  You can also get your Dapper Day on by visiting Chapter 24: Holiday Time in Disneyland and scrolling down to track 117 in the More Cause for Celebration Section.  

Mickey's 91st birthday is coming up and of course Chris will celebrate his favorite character on the Song of the Day page!  Each day from November 11 - 18 look for a special Mickey-themed song.  You can also visit Chapter 25: Disneyland Anniversaries and listen to songs celebrating Mickey's 50th, 60th and 90th birthdays!

During November 24-30 a special Thanksgiving Song of the Day will be featured on DisneyChris.com.  If you can't wait for Thanksgiving music then visit Chapter 24 (link above) to listen to all Thanksgiving-related Disneyland songs...Chris has conveniently placed all of them at the top of the list.

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Not a lot to report this month on the audio tour.  Jump to 17:05 in the video to listen to all the behind the scenes work Chris is accomplishing on the site.  He explains in detail the process of cleaning the audio and organizing the improved tracks. Currently his efforts address Chapter 1-6 and 19-28.  Here are some highlights: Adding the long awaited Disneyland Railroad Grand Circle Tour tracks; a new version of Fantasmic audio that debuted in 2017; Several Christmas tracks that Chris has planned to have ready next month; consolidating the Disneyland TV special tracks into one seamless episode (i.e. Dateline Disneyland, Disneyland '59 and Disneyland After Dark) in Chapter 27: Disneyland in TV Land.  That's all for this month!  Enjoy the beginning of the holiday season with your family, friends and a healthy helping of Disney Chris!

A Big Thank You and...Halloween Time!

Show Notes by Brian Crawford

I would like to welcome my good friend Brian back as our show notes writer. And here is the first of his many updates to come...

Wow! October has arrived and the Halloween celebrations are in full gear in Disney Parks around the world, but are my decorations up in the front yard? Nope!  Chris has me back typing up show notes so some things have to wait! We will get into all of the Halloween shenanigans a bit later, but first: THANK YOU!!! Chris would like to sincerely thank all of his Patreon supporters as well as those who volunteer their time and talents to keep the website running and the podcasts coming.  If you'd like to help Chris by donating your time and/or talents please contact him via his social media accounts (Instagram: @disneychris_jc_podcast, Facebook: Chris Lyndon, Twitter: @DisneyChris73). If you want to help financially consider becoming a Patreon subscriber! Here's how:

Visit https://www.patreon.com/DisneyChris, click on "Become a Patron" and choose a level that works for you.  We are overjoyed if you can contribute $1 a month, but consider the rewards Patreon subscribers get at the $5 (Brave Cricketeer) and $10 (Truthful Cricketeer) levels:

Brave Cricketeer: Exclusive access to the "Down the Rabbit Hole" podcast.  Chris and Ruthie pick a topic and chat about it for an hour, completely unscripted.  Also access to a monthly Disney classic cartoon commentary where Chris, Ruthie and myself watch, offer insightful tidbits of information and laugh at the gags!  

Truthful Cricketeer: Exclusive access to the Brave Cricketeer gifts above, PLUS commentary of classic episodes of the Disneyland Anthology television program that  cover Disneyland the park! The latest edition has Chris, Ruthie and I sharing our dos centavos during the program Dateline Disneyland, the live telecast of Disneyland's opening day on July 17, 1955 (divided into three segments that began in September).  

Halloween Music

This month's Song of the Day features spooky music with a Disney Villains theme.  Click here to listen to what's been released so far this month.  You can also go the Song of the Day archive and listen to music Chris posted for Halloween in 2017 and 2018.  "Boo"-yeah!  What's more you can visit the Holiday Time in Disneyland chapter and listen to tracks 3 - 45 for Halloween music featured in Disneyland.  New this year:

Track 29 - Big Thunder Trail - Haunted Abandoned Mine.  One of the only surviving remnants of the long extinct attraction, Mine Train through Nature's Wonderland, is a mysterious cave located across a catfish pond along the Big Thunder Trail. During the Mickey's Halloween Party events, special lighting, fog and frightening sound effects were used to turn this into a haunted, abandoned mine.

Track 38 - The SCAREolers.  A popular favorite among Downtown Disney Halloween time visitors is a ghostly crew of acapella singers known as the SCAREolers. Their imagined backstory is that each member of the group is among the 999 happy haunts who reside within Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, and have been "let out" for the evening to entertain mortal guests.

In addition to all this great music join Chris and Ruthie on the Jiminy Crickets! Podcast this month for their take on the Haunted Mansion attraction in Disneyland which recently celebrated its 50th anniversary!  Stay tuned to Chris' social media accounts for notification when this podcast is available.

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Chris revealed his MASSIVE to do list in previous updates which comprises edits and new content to Chapters 1-6 and 19-28.  Tracks highlighted in yellow are existing tracks ready for editing. Tracks highlighted in grey are completed tracks. Those that are not highlighted are "Coming Soon".  Here is what's new this month:

Chapter 25 - Magical Milestones

Track 8 - The Collector - Mickey Mania.  Music from a video featuring an eccentric Mickey Mouse collector's typical day...except this time it ends with a visit from the Disney company psychiatrist.  

Track 13 - Disneyland 25th Anniversary TV Commercial

Track 53 - Disneyland 50th Anniversary TV Commercials.  Previously contained just one commercial and is now a mix of five commercials narrated by Kelsey Grammer.

That's all for this month!  Everyone have a safe, enjoyable and spooktacular Halloween!  Many thanks to Chris for providing a soundtrack to our celebrations!  See you next month!

8/1/19 Vlog Update

Show Notes by Ryan Komitor

 

Hello everybody, and Happy August! D23 is happening, school is starting, and it’s time for another update of DisneyChris.com and the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour. This month has been a “tidying up” month for the site so once again there is not a massive list of updates and changes, however some fun stuff on this never ending project is brewing so let’s go take a peak…

Patreon

Just a reminder that DisneyChris is on Patreon! This is a way to help support the site, the Jiminy Crickets Podcast and the Dateline Jiminy Crickets Podcast. Becoming a Patron allows you to get exclusive content such as additional podcasts, commentaries, audio collections and more!

August Goings On

The news focused Dateline Jiminy Crickets podcast will be taking a short hiatus during the month, but rest assured that new episodes will resume in September! The reason for this is that the “hostess with the mostest” Ruthie Brown will be taking a vacation at the end of the month to go to D23, and with D23 upcoming it was felt that waiting until after the expo is over would be best.

While Dateline Jiminy Crickets will be on hiatus during the month of August, the regular Jiminy Crickets podcast will keep on trucking with a new episode: one of the ever popular music episodes, in this case “Our Top 35 Songs from Walt Disney Live Action Films” (Episode 113) which focuses on music from films made between 1949 and 1979 (as a special promotion, if you are a Patreon subscriber at the $5 level or higher during the month of August or September you will get a special collection with the 35 songs plus an additional 15 songs) Please note that this episode will not be available on YouTube due to copyright issues but will be available on the other usual platforms for the podcast.

Speaking of D23, Chris and Ruthie ordered a lot of buttons to give out for the event. Keep a lookout for them! Just make sure to mention “Jiminy Crickets” or “DisneyChris.com” though. ;)

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

August 2019 Updates

The Disneyland Hotel

Chris has continued to chug along on this chapter. Here is a list of the tracks he has most recently added:

26 – The Magic Kingdom Club - 1980 Update

27 – The Magic Kingdom Club Gold Card - 1989 Update

28 – The Magic Kingdom Club Gold Card - 1990 Update

29 – Detective Mick - Magic Kingdom Club 1991

30 – Discover a New World - Magic Kingdom Club 1992

31 – Be Our Guest - Magic Kingdom Club 1993

32 – A Whole New World - Magic Kingdom Club 1994

33 – Wonderful World of Disney - Magic Kingdom Club 1995

34 – A Really Big Postcard  - Magic Kingdom Club 1996

These tracks covering the Magic Kingdom Vacation Club (series of promotional films and videos for corporate vacation clubs) are now complete! Chris also was able to track down the 1990 and 1996 videos and has added them here.

41 – Poolside Recreation Area Background Music

43 – Hook’s Point - Neverland Pool

Representing 2 eras of the sandy pool at the hotel, and both are now complete. Track 40 has 60’s Surfer music that would have been pumped out of the speakers back in the day. Track 42 meanwhile has tracks with a more nautical theme.

37 – Hotel Coffee Shop - Monorail Café Jukebox

This track already existed on the site, but Chris decided that it needed a major expansion. The Coffee Shop had been a part of the Disneyland Hotel since near its inception, but in the 1980’s it was given a monorail theme and transformed into a 50’s style Café replete with era appropriate music via jukeboxes, which will be replicated here.

84 – Pop Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration

We discussed this track last month, but as a point of interest the actual location at the park will be closing soon so in the not so distant future this will become a “Yesterland” attraction, but if you want to remember it it will always be on the site.

Disneyland Anniversaries

Get Your Ears On: A Mickey & Minnie Celebration – 2018

We went over this section last month but Chris wants to go over it again since it is now completed! Since it’s sort of been phased out now this will serve as a memory of times past.

71 – 90 Years of Mickey

This is a fun montage musical piece that serves as a lead-in to the section proper.

72 – It’s a Good Time - Mickey’s 90th Birthday Theme Song

The full version of the lovely 90th Birthday song that graced many Disney Resort ads throughout 2018.

73 – Mickey’s 90th Birthday Cavalcade

This was an event held at Town Square in Disneyland on Mickey’s 90th Birthday (November 18, 2018). Chris already had the music that they used so he decided to include it (yay for reuse!).

74 – Mickey’s Soundsational Parade

The opening portion of the parade showcasing Mickey Mouse.

75 – Get Your Ears On - Tomorrowland Terrace Dance Party

Chris studied multiple YouTube videos of this event to get the playlist right.

76 – Mickey’s Mix Magic

This also features the “It’s a Good Time” song. It was a projection show.

77 – Pop Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration

The aforementioned track also on The Disneyland Hotel chapter.

So that’s all the updates we have for August. Chris wanted to keep the update brief but hopefully it was still informative on the going’s-on with the site. However, there is still a lot of work to be done and Chris will have an update for you in September. We hope everyone has a wonderful time at or from home enjoying D23 and a terrific rest of the month during these dog days of summer, and we’ll talk to you again in September along with the Jiminy Podcasts resuming their normal schedule! TTFN!

Show Notes by Ryan Komitor

Hello everybody, and Happy July! Hope you’ve been having a great summer in spite of the crazy weather. It’s time for another update from DisneyChris.com and the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour. While not nearly as insane as the last couple of months, we still have some neat things to go over including some great patriotic content. So let’s cut to the chase and get started!

Patreon

We went over this last month in far more detail, but just a reminder that DisneyChris is on Patreon! This is a way to help support the site, the Jiminy Crickets Podcast and the Dateline Jiminy Crickets Podcast. Becoming a Patron allows you to get exclusive content such as additional podcasts, commentaries, audio collections and more!

July Goings On

From July 1st through June 10th we again paid tribute to the founding of America on July 4th with our annual “10 Days of America”, which consisted of patriotic edged songs for the Disney Song of the Day!

July 17th was of course a very special occasion, seeing the 64th anniversary of the opening of Disneyland! To commemorate this, between July 11th through July 20th we had a “10 Days of Disneyland” celebration for the Disney Song of the Day. For the remainder of the month the standard schedule for the Song of the Day will be unaltered.

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

July 2019 Updates

General Changes

Chris likes to have the same audio on multiple chapters when the track has content that consciously overlaps between 2 of them. As a consequence however, this has meant that Chris has been busy as of late making sure to update each version of a track so that they have parity with each other. Asterisks mean that they are coming soon.

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

Chris has added just 1 new track since last month.

28 – Star Tours Opening Day Festivities - Cantina Band

This is a jazz/saxophone mix of the Cantina Band theme for E-Ticket riders on Opening Day. Chris “cheated” a little with the image of the Cantina Band in front of Star Tours as he couldn’t find an actual photo of them performing on that day.

The Disneyland Hotel

As with last month, Chris’ top priority is to work on The Disneyland Hotel chapter. Please keep in mind that the track numbers mentioned below may be slightly off, as since his July 1st update, some other tracks may have been added in, bumping up the number positioning. Here are the tracks as they were mentioned on July 1st:

Tracks 1-5 showcase the early years of The Disneyland Hotel during the 1950’s

1 – Disneyland Hotel Theme Song

This is a jingle for the Hotel.

2 – Dateline Disneyland - Jack Wrather and Bonita Granville

Audio from a live broadcast featuring actor (and future President) Ronald Reagan.

3 – Disneyland USA - The Disneyland Hotel

This is from the 1956 documentary “Disneyland USA” which showcased the park.

4 – Disneyland Hotel Heliport

This track was already on the site but it has now been added to this chapter as well.

5 – Disneyland ’61 - The Highway in the Sky

Content from episodes of “Walt Disney Presents” covering the monorail.

19 – Café Villa Verde / El Vaquero - Mariachi Band

Representing the former Mexican restaurants that used to be in the Disneyland Hotel and their live music.

20 – Sgt. Preston’s Yukon Saloon & Dancehall - Yukon Follies Review

This track represents one of Jack Wrather’s successful TV productions and their representation in the Disneyland Hotel in Wrather’s time. Since last month, Chris decided that the live audience recordings that he had were not good enough so rather than use those Chris has decided to forgo a “historically accurate” route for this track and has (rather successfully) used “soundalike” tracks from other sources, many of which consist of the actual songs that were played, just not by Sgt. Preston but by his whole troupe.

21 – Dancing Waters - 1980

22 – Dancing Waters - 1989

23 – Fantasy Waters - 1992

24 – Fantasy Waters Alternate Show - 1996

Chris already had the latter 3 tracks on the page, however Track 21 (the 1980 version of Dancing Waters) is brand new. Chris had had a poor quality source for it, however clean source audio for the majority of the 1980 version has come to light so a reconstruction was possible!

25 – Hotel View - Fantasy in the Sky Fireworks

Chris is adding this since you were able to watch it via closed circuit TV back in the day. This is also available on the Disneyland After Dark chapter as well.

Tracks 26-34 and 62-65 are Magic Kingdom/Vacation Club tracks that as you may recall from last month were planned for inclusion on the Welcome to Disneyland chapter, but Chris decided that they should just be included here instead.

36 – Mark V Disneyland Monorail to The Disneyland Hotel

In this case Chris has decided to include it both in The Disneyland Hotel chapter and the Welcome to Disneyland chapter.

40 – Poolside Recreation Area Background Music*

42 – Hook’s Point - Neverland Pool*

Representing 2 eras of the sandy pool at the hotel. Track 40 will have 60’s Surfer music that would have been pumped out of the speakers back in the day. Track 42 will have nautical music.

39 – United Airlines - Disneyland In-Flight Music

This is another track that can also be found on the Welcome To Disneyland chapter, but has been added here as well due to its travel theme.

49 – Disneyland Hotel Elevator

50 – Hotel Room Headboard Music Box - A Kiss Goodnight

Two fun tracks of interior music consisting of actual recordings of the “talking elevator” and the music box.

51 – Disneyland Today - In-Room Muzak

52 – Resort TV - Disneyland Today In-Room Music 2011

53 – Welcome to Disneyland Orientation

54 – Disneyland Trip Tips Countdown

55 – Dining Disney Style*

56 – Disneyland Resort Information - Celebrate You!

57 – Princess Bedtime Stories

58 – Duffy the Bear Bedtime Story

59 – Resort TV - Disneyland Today In-Room Music 2015*

60 – Resort TV - Disneyland Today In-Room Music 2019*

Since last month Chris has decided to merge all the Disneyland Resort TV related material into one section.

61 – The New Disneyland Hotel

The first half of this track was already on the site, so Chris just combined it with another commercial.

69 – Disneyland Hotel Signature Suites - Introduction

70 – Adventureland Suite

71 – Pirates of the Caribbean Suite

72 – Big Thunder Mountain Suite

73 – Fairytale Suite

74 – Mickey Mouse Penthouse

These are tracks that play in the Disneyland Hotel Signature Suites. The first track is an introduction, while the rest represent each suite. The Adventureland Suite has authentic in-room music while the rest are compilations that Chris created to match the theme of each suite. The doorbells however are actual source recordings of what is used in the suites. This section is now complete!

75 - The Blue Sky Suite – Mid-Century Meeting Space

The former penthouse apartment of Jack Wrather and Bonita Granville was recently transformed into a mid-century meeting space so is represented here.

81 – Downtown Disney - Daytime Area Background Music*

82 – World of Disney - Area Background Music*

83 – World of Disney - 2018 Area Background Music*

84 – Pop Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration

85 – Downtown Disney – Nighttime Area Background Music 2017*

86 – Downtown Disney – Nighttime Area Background Music 2018

Like the Magic Kingdom/Vacation Club tracks Chris decided to completely remove these tracks from the Welcome to Disneyland chapter and host them exclusively on The Disneyland Hotel chapter.

Track 84 is a recreation of a Disney playlist that can also be found on Spotify and other streaming services. This leads back to what Chris was discussing earlier about updating duplicate tracks for consistency. As a result, this will also be included on the Disneyland Anniversaries chapter to commemorate Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday celebrations from 2018.

While we’re here, let’s go over this new section shall we?

Disneyland Anniversaries

Get Your Ears On: A Mickey & Minnie Celebration - 2018

69 – 90 Years of Mickey

This is a fun montage musical piece that serves as a lead-in to the section proper.

70 – It’s a Good Time - Mickey’s 90th Birthday Theme Song

The full version of the lovely 90th Birthday song that graced many Disney Resort ads throughout 2018.

71 – Mickey’s 90th Birthday Cavalcade

This was an event held at Town Square in Disneyland on Mickey’s 90th Birthday (November 18, 2018). Chris already had the music that they used so he decided to include it (yay for reuse!).

72 – Mickey’s Soundsational Parade

The opening portion of the parade showcasing Mickey Mouse.

73 – Get Your Ears On - Tomorrowland Terrace Dance Party

Chris studied multiple YouTube videos of this event to get the playlist right.

74 – Mickey’s Mix Magic

This also features the “It’s a Good Time” song.

75 – Pop Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration

The aforementioned track also on The Disneyland Hotel chapter.

Speaking of Mix Magic, doing this meant that Chris had to also update his Disneyland After Dark chapter. The hip bone, connected to the thigh bone…

Disneyland After Dark

Tracks 59-62 are identical to Tracks 21-24 on The Disneyland Hotel chapter.

96 – Disneyland After Dark - Sweetheart’s Nite*

97 – Disneyland After Dark - 90’s Nite*

2 tracks representing special after hours events from early 2019.

98 – Get Your Ears On - Tomorrowland Terrace Dance Party

Same as Track 73 on the Disneyland Anniversaries chapter.

99 – Mickey’s Mix Magic

Same as Track 74 on the Disneyland Anniversaries chapter.

And you thought we were done. Nope, because in adding the Sweetheart’s Nite track, Chris had to update the Valentine’s Day section of the Holiday Time in Disneyland chapter which then led to other tracks on that chapter as well…

Holiday Time in Disneyland

Happy Halloween

21 – Caged Old Hag

22 – Disney Villains Shop

These represent the Disney Villains Shop that used to be in Fantasyland (now the Peter Pan’s Flight gift shop).

29 – Big Thunder Trail – Haunted Abandoned Mine*

This represents both the long defunct Mine Train through Nature’s Wonderland ride and a modern use of the caves from that ride as a Halloween showcase.

38 – The SCAREolers*

Basically the Halloween equivalent to Christmas Carolers. It’s not really in the park, but is a Downtown Disney thing. However, Chris liked the concept enough to break the rules here.

Happy Valentine’s Day

69 – Disneyland After Dark - Sweetheart’s Nite*

Same as Track 96 on the Disneyland After Dark chapter. Keep in mind of course that as holidays change the track positioning here will change as well.

So that’s all the updates we have for July. Chris will continue to work on the chapters featured here plus the Welcome to Disneyland chapter throughout the month. Hopefully by the time August rolls around even more of these track will have been completed to be shown off. We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and a terrific rest of the month, and we’ll talk to you again in August! TTFN!

 6/1/19 Vlog Update

Show Notes by Ryan Komitor

Hello everybody, it’s that time again! Happy June and welcome as we discuss not 1 but 2 major happenings here at DisneyChris.com and the Disneyland Magical Audio tour. So let’s cut right to the chase and get started.

Patreon Updates

While long time followers of DisneyChris will be aware of this, in case you are new to the site it is felt to be a keen reminder that Chris does this site out of a labor of love, not money. However because of the nature of the site and its continual growth in mind Chris has long accepted donations from those generous individuals who wish to help further the development of the site and the podcasts. Chris has decided to rethink what kind of awards he gives to Patrons and has decided on the following 4 levels themed after the wardrobe of our mascot Jiminy Cricket himself:

Patrons who pledge $1 to $4.99 are “Brave Cricketeers” based off of Jiminy Cricket’s green umbrella. Patrons who pledge at this tier will receive access to an exclusive Patreon chat group for subscribers only, and your name listed in the credits of our YouTube show – Dateline Jiminy Crickets.

Patrons who pledge $5 to $9.99 are “Truthful Cricketeers” based off of Jiminy Cricket’s white gloves. Patrons who pledge at this tier will receive all of the rewards from the above tier, plus a Disney “Song of the Day” MP3 collection monthly with artwork attached (this used to be given to all levels, but Chris decided to move it up) and a monthly Cartoon Commentary video (a reboot of the Cartoon Commentaries from the short lived “Jiminy Crickets Live” YouTube podcast series). We will be starting with “Plane Crazy” and going in chronological order.

Patrons who pledge $10 to $24.99 are “Unselfish Cricketeers” (even though all of you are unselfish for supporting us ;) ) based off of Jiminy Cricket’s top hat. Patrons who pledge at this tier will receive all of the rewards from the above tiers, plus exclusive bonus themed audio collections 3-5 times a year, and a monthly Patreon exclusive podcast “Down The Rabbit Hole”. Like the Cartoon Commentaries, this feature with Chris and Ruthie used to be a feature of the “Jiminy Crickets Live” show, however it never quite worked the way it was intended, so hopefully this new format will be more successful. As a preview Chris has uploaded the first one to YouTube free for everyone as a preview of what these will be like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FfXY7E-4VQ

Patrons who pledge $25 or more are “Official Conscience” based off of Jiminy Cricket’s gold star badge. Patrons who pledge at this tier will receive all of the rewards from the above tiers, plus people at this level will have the opportunity (no we’re not forcing you) to be a guest podcaster by contributing opinion editorials on Disney topics of your choice for our listeners, and exclusive commentaries for the Disneyland TV specials in chronological order that discussed Disneyland (Disneyland, Walt Disney Presents, The Wonderful World of Color and theatrical shorts) with Chris, Ruthie and now joined by longtime supporter of the site (as well as our former show notes editor) Brian Crawford! Like “Down The Rabbit Hole” the first of these commentaries has been uploaded to YouTube for you to get a taste of what these have to offer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hp3NQAxYd7k

In addition to the above, Chris will be redoing the T-shirts that have been available. We will be making the original designs available again, as well as some new designs. These will be available for purchase at around $20 in the near future, however if you pledge at the “Unselfish Cricketeers” level consistently for 10 months you will receive a free T-shirt of your choice, and if you pledge at the “Official Conscience” level constantly for 4 months you will have the same opportunity as above, just sooner. More details to come soon!

Finally, Chris has noticed that Patreon likes users to set goals, so he has decided to set one. If Chris is in a position where Patrons are sending a cumulative total of $500 or more per month, he will watch a modern Disney animated film that he has not yet seen. Chris is notorious for taking forever to get around to watching the newer Disney film releases. When we reach our goal, Chris will not only watch a recent Disney film, but release a reaction podcast of his first impressions with Ruthie and then record a full audio commentary (no video, but it will be synced to the film) that will be released exclusively to our Patreon subscribers at all pledge levels. If you are a Patron you will also be able to vote on which film he watches when the goal has been reached (the planned choices are Moana, Big Hero 6 and Coco).

We hope that all of you will consider further supporting the site, purchase new content for the site, pay our web hosting fees, buy new recording equipment for improved audio quality and plan special meet and greets at the parks. Every little bit counts so it’s totally okay if you only have pennies to spare. Help us continue to bring you magic!

June Goings On

June 9th marked the 85th birthday of Donald Duck, so the Disney Song of the Day from June 1st thru June 10th we had a special block of songs available entitled “10 Days of Donald”.

From June 11th thru June 16th we celebrated Father’s Day on June 16th with special themed songs on the Disney Song of the Day as a tribute to Disney Dads!

And of course we will also be adding lots of new audio to the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour throughout the month.

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

June 2019 Updates

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

It’s open. We may have to delineate in the future Disneyland BGE (Before Galaxy’s Edge) and AGE (after Galaxy’s Edge) as while the crowds have died down somewhat the mass chaos and excitement that erupted after the opening of the park to the general public shall be “a day long remembered” (Chris recommends checking out TheDailyWoo on YouTube who has some nice coverage on Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge and staying at the Disneyland Hotel for the first time). The good news though is that Chris has under much calmer surroundings been able to make further progress on the latest chapter to the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour and we are pleased to announce that it is now open for viewing to the general public! If you’re looking for a way to experience Star Wars at Disneyland without being trampled by the crowds you’ve come to the right place. Let’s have a brief tour of what’s available (tracks marked with a * mean that they are coming soon):

Chris wanted to add this as it was kind of uncanny how both franchises featured in this episode (Star Wars and The Muppets) are now owned by the Walt Disney Company, and at the end they even sing “When You Wish Upon a Star”.

Disneyland Hotel

Chris is a bit “Star Warsed” out now, so he’s decided to work a bit on the Disneyland Hotel chapter. This has been on the site for years, but it was felt that much more could be added. Here is a list of the new tracks that will be coming to the page over the next month or so (expanding the page from about 40-45 tracks to 84 tracks). Note that the following list includes all new additions and the tracks crossed out have already been added to the chapter…

Notes on some of the above tracks...

19 - Café Villa Verde / El Vaquero - Mariachi Band

Representing the former Mexican restaurants that used to be in the Disneyland Hotel and their live music.

20 - Sgt. Preston’s Yukon Saloon & Dancehall - Yukon Follies Review

This track represents one of Jack Wrather’s successful TV productions and their representation in the Disneyland Hotel in Wrather’s time. Chris was unsure of how he is going to represent this track, but he managed to use some live recordings to assemble a “sound-alike” version with actual songs performed in the show in a very similar style. Came out just great!!!  

Tracks 26-32 are Magic Kingdom/Vacation Club tracks already planned for inclusion on the Welcome to Disneyland chapter, but Chris decided that the Vacation theme of these meant that they should be represented here instead.

38 - Poolside Recreation Area Background Music

40 - Hook’s Point - Neverland Pool

Representing two eras of the sandy pool at the hotel.

47 - Disneyland Hotel Elevator

48 - Hotel Room Headboard Music Box - A Kiss Goodnight

Two fun tracks of interior music

67 - Disneyland Hotel Signature Suites - Introduction

68 - Adventureland Suite

69 - Pirates of the Caribbean Suite

70 - Big Thunder Mountain Suite

71 - Fairytale Suite

72 - Mickey Mouse Penthouse

These are sound effects and music inspired by the Disneyland Hotel Signature Suites. The first track is an introduction, while the rest represent each suite

79 - Downtown Disney - Daytime Area Background Music

80 - World of Disney - Area Background Music

81 - World of Disney - 2018 Area Background Music

82 - Pop Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration

83 - Downtown Disney – Nighttime Area Background Music 2017

84 - Downtown Disney – Nighttime Area Background Music 2018

Finally these tracks were the main impetus for all the new work on this chapter. While this doesn’t mean that Chris is going to cover Disney’s California Adventure yet, a friend of his pointed out that Downtown Disney was closer to the Disneyland Hotel than California Adventure or the entrance to Disneyland so he decided to add it here. These were already on the Welcome to Disneyland chapter but they will be removed from there and added here. Track 82 is brand new.

So that’s all for the updates for June. As you can see Chris has his work cut out for him (still needs to finish Star Wars and the Hotel chapter has opened up another can of worms) however always remember that this is a marathon, not a sprint. The fun and anticipation of editing, as well as the continual support of people like you are what keeps this adventure going. Also with the addition of the Galaxy’s Edge chapter Chris has reached another milestone as the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour now has 1700+ track! “Gawrsh” as Goofy would say, but it’s always nice to reach another hundred tracks. Hope you had fun and have a wonderful month of June and summer, we’ll talk to you again in July, and may the force be with you! TTFN!

5/1/19 Vlog Update

Show Notes by Ryan Komitor


Hello everybody, and welcome to the month of May! It’s time for another monthly update on DisneyChris and the Magical Audio Tour. They say that April showers bring May flowers, and that is certainly true here at DisneyChris.com. So let’s get right into all of the latest developments this month.

Hollywood Studio’s 30th Anniversary

May 1st marks the 30th anniversary of Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios (originally opened as Disney-MGM Studios). A young 15 year old Chris was actually there the first week of it opening so it is a place near and dear to his heart. He went back in the mid-1990’s and worked as a cast member on the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular and Star Tours. If you want to see some fun images from the land over the years, please check out the official DisneyChris/Jiminy Crickets Podcast Instagram page (disneychris_jc_podcast). Chris and Ruthie have had an account there for a while, but recently decided to start using it to upload rare photos of the Disney parks, both old and new, as they wanted to connect with the younger audience that uses it.

Special Announcement

We are pleased to announce that the Jiminy Crickets! Podcast has become a member of Roarbots. Roarbots is a podcast and article network that is “a celebration of geek culture, representing a diversity of voices that covers a broad swath of the nerdy landscape. Fair warning: Our working definition of “geek culture” is constantly evolving, so you’ll likely see us geek out about everything from movies, games, and toys to food and travel destinations.” Both the normal Jiminy Crickets! Podcast and its news based sister show Dateline Jiminy Crickets! are included. An episode will be posted every Thursday, but rest assured that this will not involve a lowering of the quality and standard that Chris and Ruthie have strived for. Rather, during weeks when new podcasts are not released (one week a month) an archival release from the ever growing archive of past releases will be released onto their site. If you want to look more into Roarbots you can check them out at https://theroarbots.com/. The podcasts will of course still be available via https://jcricketspodcast.blogspot.com/ as well as iTunes and Stitcher.

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

The new land will be opening at Disneyland Resort on May 31st, and to coincide with this, the intention is to have the newest chapter of the Magical Audio Tour available on May 31st, regardless of whether the audio is fully done. If the audio is not finished by then, it will be added at a later date, with placeholders in the meantime. Keep in mind that it can take quite a while to work on each track due to strict but necessary quality control measures.

The Month of Moms and Star Wars!

May is indeed the month of Mom and of Mother’s Day, and Chris has some fun things planned. As always, DisneyChris has a Song of the Day throughout each day of the month, and from the 6th through the 12th (Mother’s Day week) Disney mother themed songs will be featured throughout the week. In addition to the aforementioned Hollywood Studios images, Chris will be sharing Mother’s Day related imagery on Facebook (Chris Lyndon), Twitter (@disneychris73) and Instagram throughout the month as well. Plus pictures from other May celebrations…

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour
May 2019 Updates

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

May is also Star Wars month, and DisneyChris will be celebrating on the Fourth by uploading Star Wars photos to the aforementioned social media platforms, and just another reminder that on the 31st, just in time for the opening of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, Chris will be adding a new Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge section to the site! Last month we went over what the plans were for the new chapter of the Magical Audio Tour, and we are pleased to announce that much progress has been made, and the list below has been updated accordingly.

As the title suggests, this was an appearance from some of the cast of Star Wars (Mark Hamill, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker) on an episode of The Muppet Show originally broadcast on February 23, 1980. Chris wanted to add this as it was kind of uncanny how both franchises featured in this episode (Star Wars and The Muppets) are now owned by the Walt Disney Company, and at the end they even sing “When You Wish Upon a Star”.

Section 2: The Adventure is Real 1986-2011


This section (named after the publicity tagline) covers the period between the creation of Star Tours and the last years of the George Lucas era of Star Wars/Lucasfilm and the original Star Tours. Included is rare promotional and press material, background music, musical scores, sound effects, ridethroughs and more!

Section 3: The Adventures Continue 2011-2018

In 2011 a new version of Star Tours called “Star Tours: The Adventures Continue” was introduced, serving as a prequel to the original and likewise including material from the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. Just a year later in 2012 Star Wars/Lucasfilm was sold to The Walt Disney Corporation, officially making them members of the Disney family.

As for track 49 - Chris is unsure of how to edit it due to the randomized nature of the attraction. Chris believes that because of this, the track will not be available at launch, but wants to do something with it at some point regardless.

50.   Stormtrooper Guest Interactions

61.   Tomorrowland Theater - Path of the Jedi

62.   Hyperspace Mountain
63.   Jedi Training Academy - Trials of the Temple

Tracks 62 and 63 are ones where Chris lacks good enough quality source material, so they may be delayed until after launch.

64.   March of the First Order
65.   Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite


Section 4: Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge 2019

In 2019 Disney launched a brand new land many years in the making, promising one of the most immersive experiences yet experienced in a theme park.

68.   Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Attraction Previews

Good news as can be seen is that we now have 4 tracks relating to the actual Galaxy’s Edge attraction, and as the years progress more can be added as things, well, happen. Fear not space travelers!

There are only 26 tracks left to edit so Chris thinks he will be in good shape for the launch. Like the actual Disneyland launch, not everything will be completed, but the vast majority will be available.
The release date is now set for May 31st, regardless of what is completed by that date. The page he displays in the YouTube vlog is a dummy page, and when launch day arrives Chris will copy the material from this page (currently set to private) onto the real page so it should seem instantaneous.

And that’s it for our May updates. We here at DisneyChris can’t wait for you to see (and hear) what’s to come. Have a wonderful May, Mother’s Day and Star Wars related hijinks, and we’ll see you soon! TTFN!

Show Notes by Ryan Komitor

 

No this not an April Fool’s Joke! ;)

Hello everybody, and happy April! It’s time for another monthly update on DisneyChris and the Magical Audio Tour. It’s the month of Easter so we’ll be showing how you can participate in the festivities through the site. Also we’re going to give you a sneak peek into a brand new chapter being added for the Magical Audio Tour.

 

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

The new land will be opening at Disneyland Resort on May 31st, and to coincide with this the intention is to have the newest chapter of the Magical Audio Tour available on May 31st, regardless of whether the audio is fully done. If the audio is not finished by then the unfinished tracks will be added at a later date. Keep in mind that it can take a while to work on each track due to strict but necessary quality control measures.

 

Special Announcement

We are pleased to announce that the Jiminy Crickets! Podcast has become a member of Roarbots. Roarbots is a podcast and article network that is “a celebration of geek culture, representing a diversity of voices that covers a broad swath of the nerdy landscape. Fair warning: Our working definition of “geek culture” is constantly evolving, so you’ll likely see us geek out about everything from movies, games, and toys to food and travel destinations.” Both the normal Jiminy Crickets! Podcast and its news based sister show Dateline Jiminy Crickets! are included. An episode will be posted every Thursday, but rest assured that this will not involve a lowering of the quality and standard that Chris and Ruthie have strived for. Rather, during weeks when new podcasts are not released (one week a month) an archival release from the ever growing archive of past releases will be released onto their site. If you want to look more into Roarbots you can check them out at https://theroarbots.com/. The podcasts will of course still be available via https://jcricketspodcast.blogspot.com/ as well as iTunes and Stitcher.

 

Easter Fun!

Throughout the month of April we will be having Easter related content on the site as well as Chris’ social media. Check him out on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DisneyChris73 and Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DisneyChrisDotCom for this and lots more content. Chris also has two Facebook groups: Disney Music Fans and the Jiminy Crickets Podcast, so if you have any interest in either (and aren’t trying to sell something ;)) please make sure to contact Chris and he’ll get you set up. Between April 10-21 the Disney Song of the Day will have a “Countdown to Easter” event, where each day has Easter themed songs. And of course the remainder of the month will have a normal Disney Song of the Day. On Facebook and Twitter Chris will also be sharing vintage Disney Easter photos throughout this time. Chris wants to point out that he has a decade long backlog of Easter images available, and while he gives credit where it is due, 99% of the time he does not know who created the original images

 

Holiday Time in Disneyland – Happy Easter

Being that time of year, Chris has moved the Easter tracks up on the Holiday Time in Disneyland chapter, and the St. Patrick’s Day tracks have been moved down. 10 hopping tracks for your enjoyment!

 

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

April 2019 Updates

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

Yes it’s that time. Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge promises to be a major addition to the park(s), and it only seems appropriate that such a big new chapter in Disneyland necessitates a new chapter of the Magical Audio Tour! Chris began work on this chapter around mid-February, and work has steadily progressed behind the scenes to get it ready in time for the launch of the new land itself. Originally Chris was simply doing preliminary work on it, however when Disney announced the land’s opening for late-May, Chris decided to pause all other work and focus exclusively on the new chapter. This chapter is a one-stop station; a celebration of Star Wars, of both the films as well as the association between Disney and Star Wars that long predates the 2012 buyout of Lucasfilm. The page itself is currently up, but the actual content will be launched later so please be patient. And with that, it’s time for an exclusive sneak peak of what is to come…

 

Section 1: A Long Time Ago… 1977-1985

This section is devoted to pre-Star Tours era content, and shows how Disney became affiliated with the franchise and George Lucas

Star Wars: A New Hope - Musical Score

Highlights from the now classic scores for the original trilogy films, composed by John Williams.

The Space Stage: Meco

Disneyland Records - Ewoks: The Battle for Endor

Disneyland Records - Star Wars: Adventures in ABC

Disneyland Records - Star Wars: Adventures in Colors and Shapes

It all began with the above albums. These represent the earliest collaborations between Disney and Lucasfilm and thus are included here for posterity. The first 4 are long playing records (about 35 minutes each) whereas the remainder are “read-alongs” which are about 10 minutes each.

The Sounds of Outerspace

This is a 1981 sound effects album inspired by the sounds of Star Wars. This also concluded a 17 year run of sound effects albums on Disneyland Records that began with “Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House” in 1964 (also included elsewhere on the DisneyChris site).

America Sings - Geese Quartet

Included here as two of the Geese later became droids in Star Tours. Tough way to make a living.

In 2019 Disney launched a brand new land many years in the making, promising one of the most immersive experiences yet experienced in a theme park.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge - John Williams Theme

Aye, there’s the rub. Galaxy’s Edge has not opened yet so the content that can be provided for it is, shall we say, limited and that’s why Chris is putting a call out to those who may have any audio material that they would like to share with the site. Contact info can be found near the top of the Audio Editor’s Blog.

Setting up the chapter was more difficult than it would seem, as it involved tedious work renumbering and rearranging everything to facilitate the placement of a new chapter. Chris would like to give a shoutout to an anonymous friend of his who helps him in situations such as these. It is greatly appreciated! In addition, there will be a continuous play feature at the bottom, just like all the other chapters.

We’re excited to bring this new chapter to you. Please be patient as Chris continues to work on this new content for a late May launch. In the meantime there are many other chapters that you can check out if you need a Disney park music fix.

Thank you for joining us for the April 1st update. Chris was nice and decided to not play an April Fool’s joke on you all, everything that’s here is actually happening. It’s going to be an exciting couple of months coming up so make sure to tune-in to the next audio editor’s blog on May 1st. Have a wonderful Easter and/or related holidays, and we’ll see you soon! TTFN!

3/1/19 Vlog Update

 

Show Notes by Ryan Komitor

 

Hello everybody, and happy March! It’s time for another monthly update on DisneyChris and the Magical Audio Tour. Just a quick reminder that updates are now being released at the start of each month. It’s the month of St. Patrick’s Day so as a result that is the theme of the month! Chris even decided to make a special title card for this month’s update with this theme. We’ll be going over some of the fun things that you can do to get into the spirit, as well as the going’s on with the site in general.

 

Special Announcement

We are pleased to announce that the Jiminy Crickets! Podcast has become a member of Roarbots. Roarbots is a podcast and article network that is “a celebration of geek culture, representing a diversity of voices that covers a broad swath of the nerdy landscape.

St. Patrick’s Day Fun!

Holiday Time in Disneyland – Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Being that time of year Chris has moved the St. Patrick’s Day tracks up on the Holiday Time in Disneyland chapter, and the Valentine’s Day tracks have been moved down. Admittedly not all of the tracks are purely St. Patrick’s Day related and those are more a general Irish theme, but we hope you enjoy them! 8 tracks from end to end of the rainbow.

 

Song of the Day Archive

Between March 11-17 the Song of the Day will be either Irish or St. Patrick’s Day themed with a Disney connection. The rest of the month will be a standard Disney song as usual.

 

Jiminy Crickets! Podcast – From the Archives

If you want to further get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit Chris recommends Episode 62 of the Jiminy Crickets! Podcast: “Darby O’Gill and the Little People” which can be found here as well as the other usual places, and make sure to check out some of the other legacy episodes too: https://jcricketspodcast.blogspot.com/2017/03/episode-62-darby-ogill-and-little-people.html

Chris hopes to be done with the vast majority of these tracks by the end of March, but has said that realistically he knows this could change at a moment’s notice, since he is incredibly busy with the podcast and his social media presence.

*A quick update. Since the March video went out Disney unveiled the whole hoo-ha surrounding the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge expansion at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Since the opening dates were officially announced, and they are much earlier than originally rumored, he decided to immediately pause work on the “Welcome to Disneyland” chapter. and work on his new chapter exclusively devoted to Star Wars in order to have it ready in time for the grand opening on May 31st. We hope to provide more info on what this entails in April at the earliest so please stay tuned!

We hope that everybody has a very happy and wonderful St. Patrick’s Day and we hope that these additions will help get you into the Irish spirit. The next update will be at the start of April so we hope to see you then. TTFN!

2/1/19 Vlog Update

 

Show Notes by Ryan Komitor

 

Hello everybody, and happy February! It’s been a while, and there’s a reason for that. As of the last update back in January, Chris will be doing something a little different for 2019 where, rather than posting audio blogs bi-weekly, they will now be done at the start of each month! You probably guessed based on the special banner for this episode but February means Valentine’s Day, so a lot of this month’s audio blog will be about the new Valentine’s Day content Chris will be adding to the site. Things have been incredibly busy the past month for both the Magical Audio Tour and the site as a whole, so there are lots of updates to share.

Let’s cut right to the chase and talk about the new Valentine’s content.

 

Song of the Day Archive

For February, the Song of the Day entries will be devoted to Disney Love Songs to fit into the Valentine’s spirit! This is the 5th year of Song of the Day and the month begins with Barbra Streisand’s cover of “Someday My Prince Will Come” from the 2005 Disney themed Make A Wish Foundation album “Wishes”, inspired by the fireworks show of the same name. Barbra being such a legendary singer made her a perfect choice to kickstart the month, and of course each day a new love song will be added throughout the month. Impatient for a love song fix? DisneyChris also has an archive of the past couple years’ (2017-2018) worth of February Song of the Day entries so be sure to check those out as well. Clicking on those pages gives you a continual play option as well as selecting individual tracks. Great for a boring day at work, but perhaps best to use headphones if it’s allowed, just in case the boss walks in. ;)

 

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Holiday Time in Disneyland – Happy Valentine’s Day

Another option for Valentine’s Day music is on the Magical Audio Tour. Since Valentine’s Day is the most current holiday these entries have been moved up on the Holiday Time in Disneyland chapter to near the top. 7 tracks of park related Valentine’s goodness. Like chocolate but without the potential toothache. Like Song of the Day each chapter has a continual play option in addition to the individual track selections.

 

Jiminy Crickets! Podcast

In time for Valentine’s Day is Episode 105 of the Jiminy Crickets! Podcast, celebrating the 60th anniversary of Sleeping Beauty. Chris and Ruthie go over everything you would want to know about the making of this classic animated love story. Check out this and many more podcasts on https://jcricketspodcast.blogspot.com/ as well as iTunes and Stitcher.

 

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

February 2019 Updates

Lots of things are in the works here at DisneyChris. Focus has largely been on Chapter One, Welcome to Disneyland, for the past few months, and things are ready to be unleashed. You may have noticed since the end of last year that there were a lot of “Coming Soon” entries on that page in particular because of this, and now Chris’ work in restoring and editing the audio has nearly been finalized. What this means is that over the next month or so the new (or in some cases, updates of existing entries) tracks will be added. Chris will let you know on both his Facebook and Twitter when tracks are uploaded. The reason why it can take months between a Coming Soon spot and final upload is not merely the volume of tracks, but Chris’ thorough quality control procedures which ends with a final listen-through of each edited track to check for any remaining glitches should they exist. In all 41 tracks are to be added; 35 brand new and 6 updates of previously existing tracks.

Here is a full list of the tracks as well as more details on selected tracks

  1. Track 19 The Disneyland Story – REDO

  2. Track 22 Dateline Disneyland - Opening Day Live Broadcast

This one required a lot of work and fun editing to sound good, as it was a live broadcast. The results should be worth it however.

  1. Track 25 Kodak Presents Disneyland ‘59

There was a version of Disneyland ’59 in theaters called “Gala Day at Disneyland”, however it was a bit too perfectly edited and presented so Chris wanted to use the Kodak sponsored ABC TV special instead. Chris spent a lot of time further working on the audio for the site and editing out commercials and making transitions from one section to the next. For those who would like to hear “Gala Day at Disneyland”, it’s available as Chapter 1, Track 32.

  1. Track 29 Disneyland 10th Anniversary

  2. Track 30 Disneyland Around The Seasons

While both tracks previously existed on the site in some form, Chris has decided to go back and tackle these anew using the latest restoration tools and techniques. The original versions were already on the TV Land chapter but the difference here is not only the improved audio, but also that unlike on the TV chapter, here they will be combined into single tracks rather than in sections.

  1. Track 35 Disneyland 10th Anniversary Banquet

  2. Track 39 Superstar Limo - Southern California Freeway Music – REDO

There was 1 song on this that had a truncated start, however Chris was able to locate the original uncut track so that the intro has been restored.

  1. Track 49 Kennel Club - Area Background Music

  2. Track 51 Disneyland Landscaping Presentation - Jack Wagner

These 2 tracks were unearthed a couple years ago in poor quality. Originally Chris didn’t intend on including them but decided they were interesting enough to include after working to improve the sound. The Kennel Club loop is a reconstruction from the original records used at the time. The last track was truncated but luckily other tracks included on the album it was from were also used in the Main Gate Loop from around the same time, so it was able to be located.

  1. Track 61 Main Gate Newsstand Souvenirs Medley

This is going to be a fun track. It’s going to be a mix of 50’s and 60’s songs about souvenirs. While it doesn’t have much to do with Disney, Chris is a huge fan of this era of music and wanted to include context of what people were listening to at this time. Chris also included the ringing of a cash register as a transition between each track.

  1. Track 62 The Unlimited Passport

A short commercial from the early 1980’s about Disney’s Unlimited Passport program.

  1. Track 71 Disney University Cast Orientation - The Disney Tradition – REDO

  2. Track 72 Cast Member Orientation - Main Gate / Main Street USA

  3. Track 73 In Search of Excellence - The Disney Cast – REDO

Elements of Tracks 71 & 73 were already on the site as 1 single track, but Chris decided to expand them and add a third track as well. A major reason for the change was originally what will be Track 71 ended the track, and had a film projector sound overtop to give the impression of watching a training film. Chris became increasingly unhappy with this decision so he has made the changes as seen above. Track 72 is another Jack Wagner narrated track. As the “voice of Disney” from the early 1970’s into the early 1990’s, aside from his duties as park announcer and curating music loops he was also often hired to do narrations for Disney’s internal films & slideshows for employees & cast members, and this is yet another example. It’s an almost ludicrously detailed track for new cast members so it will be a fun listen.

  1. Track 75 We Create Happiness - Cast Member Training

Early 1990’s training video for cast members.

  1. Track 76 Team Disney Anaheim - Lobby Area Background Music

This is actually based on a loop that plays for the Magical Express airport bus lines in Walt Disney World, however the tracks are also used in closed circuit broadcasts in the Team Disney Anaheim lobby, so Chris really wanted to include this. Think of it as “artistic license”. ;)

  1. Track 77 Magic Kingdom Club - 1980 Update

  2. Track 78 Magic Kingdom Club Gold Card - 1989 Update

  3. Track 79 Detective Mick - Magic Kingdom Club 1991 Update

  4. Track 80 Discover a New World - Magic Kingdom Club 1992 Update

  5. Track 81 Be Our Guest - Magic Kingdom Club 1993 Update

  6. Track 82 A Whole New World - Magic Kingdom Club 1994 Update

  7. Track 83 The Wonderful World of Disney - Magic Kingdom Club 1995 Update

This is a brand new section devoted to audio from films and videos released to members of the Magic Kingdom Club national travel discount program offered to employees of large corporations. Most stuff that doesn’t involve Disneyland has been edited out, but rest assured, there’s a lot of Disneyland material here.

  1. Track 84 And Now a Word from Our Sponsors

On “The Wonderful World of Disney” TV related chapter as well as the Anniversary chapter there’s a lot of tracks devoted to commercials and related items. This is a combination of most of them in one place. This is from 1980 to the present day.

  1. Track 87 Disney Dollars

This is a news spot issued by Disney to local TV stations to inform the public about the then new Disney Dollars program. To fill it out Chris added “We’re In The Money” as background music, which is most appropriate.

  1. Track 100 Saxophone Quartet - Good Morning Concert

  2. Track 101 The Dapper Dans - Good Morning Concert

  3. Track 102 The Straw Man Strutters - Main Gate Concert

These 3 are being added to have more Main Gate material other than the Disneyland Band track which was already on the site.

  1. Track 107 Park Opening - Rope Drop Ceremony – REDO

 

This is now the authentic audio. The older version was pieced together using Walt Disney World and Disney Home video materials.

 

  1. Track 109 Disneyland Resort Vacation Planning DVD 2003

After the Magic Kingdom Club disbanded in 2001 DVD’s such as this were sent out to anyone interested in planning for their vacations.

  1. Track 112 D23 Expo 2017 - Disney Parks and Resorts Presentation

Music only segments from the 2017 D23 Expo.

  1. Track 113 Disneyland Esplanade - 2017 Area Background Music

This is the most recent loop, replacing the one that played beginning in the early 2000’s.

  1. Track 114 Disneyland Esplanade - Pixar Fest Area Background Music

A special loop that played in the summer of 2018 for Pixar Fest

  1. Track 115 Annual Passholder Days - Welcome Center

Mix of tracks used for Annual Passholder Days. Chris decided to include it here even though the actual event was held at the Starcade in Tomorrowland.

  1. Track 116 Downtown Disney - Daytime Area Background Music

  2. Track 117 World of Disney - Area Background Music

  3. Track 118 World of Disney - 2018 Area Background Music

  4. Track 119 Downtown Disney - Nighttime Area Background Music 2017

  5. Track 120 Downtown Disney - Nighttime Area Background Music 2018

Chris originally didn’t want to go down the proverbial rabbit hole of Downtown Disney, but as it’s such an integral part of Disneyland’s history now he decided to include some tracks from there. Another reason is that recently proper music loops have been added where before generic music was played. In the case of the 2018 World of Disney loop, Chris only has 3 songs from it currently as a full tracklist has yet to be ID’d, so unless Chris is able to find out what the other tracks are, he will just include the 3 tracks and replace it when the full loop is found.

  1. Track 121 Disneyland Jukebox

  2. Track 122 Disneyland - Songs of Tribute – REDO

These 2 tracks are replacements for a previous track (Chris can’t remember the name now) which combined Disney related pop songs with tracks created by Disney. Chris decided to split them into 2 tracks. “Disneyland Jukebox” is a collection of rock & pop songs by people about Disneyland, and admittedly some of the songs are negative towards the park. After some deliberation it was decided to include them anyway. Meanwhile, “Songs of Tribute” is about songs that are used in celebration and in tribute to the park, and is the concluding track for the chapter.

 

Whew, that’s all the updates coming through February. Hopefully everyone enjoyed this peak behind the curtain into the goings-on here at DisneyChris. Also even though these notes should go out after Valentine’s Day has occurred, Chris nevertheless recommends that those who find themselves single on that day have a fun day for themselves, and I wholeheartedly agree. It’s a day to have fun in general whether you’re freshly out of a relationship or have been happily married for decades, just have fun!

Again, the next update will be at the start of March so hope to see you then! TTFN!

1/1/19 Vlog Update

 Show Notes by Brian Crawford

Happy New Year from Disney Chris!

Happy New Year Disney music lovers!  Chris has been hard at work all December long finishing up the Christmas chapter, but despite the feverish pace the end of the year found him three tracks shy of fully editing Chapter 22 - Christmas Time in Disneyland.  Oh well, that just means something to look forward to next Christmas!  We’ll get into the Disneyland Magical Audio Tour a bit later, but first let’s see what’s new with the Jiminy Crickets Podcast:

Jiminy Crickets Podcast Update

The live show hasn’t turned out to be what Chris and Ruthie envisioned.  There have been many technical challenges, copyright issues with posting the cartoon commentary piece, and lack of participation in the live audience.  There were some faithful participants and Chris and Ruthie would like to sincerely thank those dedicated Cricketeers for their support and interaction during the live show.  Many listeners just preferred catching the live show after it was posted, and that’s totally OK! So going forward the live show will be eliminated and replaced with a YouTube show that will focus on Disney news and current events with one additional segment that was introduced on the live show.  This segment will rotate between The Top 10, Disney book reviews, Disney Doin’s and other fun productions. The new format will be pre-recorded every other Wednesday and made available the following day on DisneyChris’s YouTube channel at 8pm Eastern Time.  The first episode was recorded and uploaded on Thursday, January 10th.  Go on over to the channel and catch up on all the recent events happening at the Disney parks around the world.  

The regular Jiminy Crickets podcast will still be released once per month and Chris and Ruthie have also planned three additional music shows.  These bonus episodes will be released in February, July and September! Chris has also decided to make exclusive podcast content available for Patreon subscribers!  Selected subscribers will be given a chance to participate in “The D Show”, a Disney trivia game for the consummate Disney nerd! Chris and Ruthie will also continue to record Cartoon Commentaries for subscribers as well.  As these shows are recorded and posted to the Patreon site, Chris will provide a link to all subscribers. Consider this an added incentive to subscribe today! For as little as $1 per month you can get access to this exclusive content as well as special musical selections Chris will send to all of his friends who contribute.  Click here to donate to this unique place of Disney music and magic!

Disneyland Magical Audio Tour

Let’s review all of the track updates Chris made to Chapter 22 – Christmas Time in Disneyland.  Unless otherwise noted the update was essentially lengthening the track and/or cleaning up the audio.  As Chris finds new audio to enhance tracks he will usually spend considerable effort adding this new material and enhancing the aural experience for the discriminating Disney audiophile!  

Track 38 – Charles Dickens Christmas Carolers

Track 39 – The Dickens Yuletide Band

Track 40 – The Holiday Brass

Track 42 – The Dapper Dans – Holiday Medley; all new musical selections with improved audio quality with special assistance from a barbershop quartet loving Patreon subscriber!

Track 43 – Coke Corner Pianist – Holiday Medley

Track 44 – ‘Tis the Season Handbell Carolers

Track 52 – The Disneyland Hotel – Holiday Area Background Music

Track 55 – Jingle Cruise – Queue Area Background Music; completely redone 1.5 hour musical loop of the now “retired” holiday overlay…bring it back, bring it back!

Track 57 – The Rivers of America – Holiday Area Background Music

Track 58 – The Blue Bayou – Holiday Area Background Music

Track 70 – Frontierland – Holiday Area Background Music

Track 71 – Big Thunder Ranch – Holiday Area Background Music

Track 73 – Jingle Jangle Jamboree – Billy Hill and the Hillbillies; not original music by the popular and hilarious Golden Horseshoe ensemble, but a nice compilation of holiday music in that infectious Kentucky Bluegrass style

Track 74 – Bear Country – Holiday Area Background Music

Track 86 – Mickey’s Night Before Christmas; this is currently the Walt Disney World version of the show.  Chris is working with a former cast member who performed in the Disneyland version and will do his best to get it posted next year.

Track 87 – The Magic of Christmas

Track 89 – Mickey’s Nutcracker

Track 94 – Sleeping Beauty Castle – Winter Castle Lighting Ceremony

Lastly, Chris added five new versions of the Candlelight Processional and is now just missing two versions of the annual classic: Jack Wagner and Howard Keel.  These will be available next year!

To close out this update, Chris shared his “to do” list to finish up Chapter 1 so expect a lot of great new additions to that chapter in the coming weeks.  As usual (and my pleasure of course!) I will summarize all of the new content and additions in the next update. Have a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
