214: EPCOT Center ’82-86 and the Lost Art of Original Songs

Feel the flow, spread your golden wings, and just make believe you’re a tiny little seed, because we’re taking a look back at the original songs that debuted throughout Epcot when the park first opened in 1982. On episode 214, guest Guy Selga joins us for a discussion about songs like “Universe of Energy” and “Listen to the Land,” why these songs are so fondly remembered by fans today, and why the practice of giving attractions original songs seems to have become a lost art. Come along on our musical tour!

Also on this week’s show, we host another wacky edition of Mad Chatter Jeopardy. Plus, we break down some of the new-to-us experiences we tried at Walt Disney World last week, including the Behind the Seeds tour at Epcot and Trivia Night at Port Orleans – Riverside.
