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.

Be sure to find Guy on Twitter (@guyselga) and let him know you enjoyed hearing him on the show! Also, check out The Unofficial Guide to Disneyland for your Disneyland travel needs.

103: The Music of Magic Kingdom

It’s a small world filled with grim, grinning ghosts. But hey, there’s a great big beautiful tomorrow, so put on your Sunday clothes, queue up The Mad Chatters Podcast, and drink up, me ‘earties. Yo ho!

This week we take a musical tour of Magic Kingdom to discover the background loops that play in the park’s six themed lands, as well as the many original songs written for Disney attractions. We discuss our favorite tunes, dig into their backgrounds and authors, and talk about why music is such an integral part of Walt Disney World.

In “It’s the Small Things, After All,” we each share a hidden gem or often under-appreciated aspect of the Disney universe that we love. Plus, we introduce the hashtag #MisheardDisneyLyrics. Come join the fun now!
