VIDEO - New background music comes to Epcot World Showcase pavilions

Jan 08, 2020 in "France (Pavilion)"

Posted: Wednesday January 8, 2020 10:49am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Epcot's World Showcase pavilions are receiving new background music this month.

At the France pavilion, new music includes an arrangement of "Be Our Guest," and at the Mexico pavilion, new background music includes "Remember Me" from Coco.

Epcot is embarking on a new directive to bring more Disney movie content to all areas of the park, and later this month a new Beauty and the Beast sing-along will debut at the France pavilion. Later in the year, the France pavilion will also debut its new Ratatouille expansion.

Watch the video below for a listen to the new France background music.

thank you, I actually like it, so is this blended into the original and mix use of both?

It's still there. I made a traditional trip through there during my fall trip. @marni1971 "saved" it that time in 2018 actually. *I'm not going to let this joke die*

Another loop of concern..Is the Imagination Bathroom...Now, the last time I was there in Jan 2018 it wasn't playing (they may have turned it off) But, hopefully it's still there..

They definitely used the sun/moon bgm outside at some point in the early 2000’s.

Japan is on its second loop - it changed around '05. Canada's exterior loop is 1982 for the moment, but its 59 minute interior loop is all but gone according to the Compendium.

Isn't Germany, Italy, Japan, Morocco, UK, & Canada's loops "82" versions?

So long as it’s not Imaginations bathrooms.

I could see them having completely new music for World Celebration, but maybe keeping the Innoventions loop for World Discovery. It sort of fits there and would be a nice homage. I hope they at least leave it playing somewhere, even if it's a small corner or a bathroom.

Exterior BGM is still 1982. Interior is the third version (1982, 1993 and 2005)

BatB music is overused throughout WDW anyway. We don't need "Be Our Guest" in every other music loop. They'll probably just recycle that DisneySea loop, even though it includes the Ratatouille song, which would be more appropriate for France. IMO it should be 2 Disney songs per loop, 3 max. Anything more than that is overkill for World Showcase.

This is what I have been under the impression of and still believe to be correct. The exterior loop is still the glorious 1982 version, hence is why “Listen To The Land” is still included. The interior loop is the one that has changed several times.

Any footage of The Aristocats music playing?
