New background music debuts throughout Disney Springs

Jul 27, 2015 in "Disney Springs"

Posted: Monday July 27, 2015 9:00am EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

The transition from Downtown Disney to Disney Springs moved a step closer this past weekend as new background music debuted throughout the property.

Say goodbye to "Funky Town" and "High School Musical," and say hello to electronic instrumental music on the West Side and The Landing, and some new arrangements of instrumental electronic Disney-inspired tunes in the Marketplace.

Along with the all new background music, the new system will eventually play different tracks dependent on time of day, not just the specific location with Disney Springs.

Some of the tracks we heard on the West Side and The Landing were Bossapolari by Planet Lounge, Mysterious Muses by Baby Mammoth, Lost Vagueness by Thunderball, Rosetta Drive and Summer Song by The Karminsky Experience, and Das Gezabel by Paul Kalkbrenner.

New interpretations of 'A Whole New World' and 'Winnie the Pooh' are some of the tracks playing in the Marketplace.

We grabbed a few recordings of both the Disney-Inspired tracks in the Marketplace and some of what you can hear in The Landing.

There is 100% some Club Cool tracks being played on the West Side.

Yeah, I don't think it's the same at all. From what I've been told, Disney actually had these this loop custom-made for Disney Springs. (There are three loops - Marketplace (Custom Made), Old Pleasure Island Area (Some needle drop, hard to tell), and West Side (Needle Drop - Shazam Identified some of these).

Isn't Club Cool still playing dancehall techno, though?

Noticed that some of the tracks played here are also played in Club Cool at Epcot.

Ohhhhhhhhhh. I'll look for that. Here and I was going with the National Lampoon's Vacation joke....

Don't think I can embed Yahoo video here. What Up With That was a re-occuring sketch on SNL and Bill Hader played Lindsay Buckingham in it every time.

Too Subtle a reference?

Which imagineer do I have to bribe to get them to mix in Lindsey Buckingham's "Holiday Road"?

Yes, but do you like it?

I like what I've heard so far. I think it adds to the atmosphere and the arrangements of the songs are really lovely.

I heard First Time In Forever today in the Marketplace. Was very cool!

I'm here at Disney Springs now, and I love the Marketplace loop. The electronic versions of the Disney Songs are very nice! It gives the whole place a modern vibe. It's not as in-your-face as the old loops were. Also, the new speakers make everything sound really nice. :-) This loop kind of reminds me of some of the music that plays on the old WDW Today Loop and the Your Disney Resort Loops that play on Resort TV.
