Where to Find FREE Disney World Theme Parks Christmas Music

Disney World Christmas castle

As we approach Christmas holidays, do you ever find yourself being glad you didn’t brave the crowds at Walt Disney World and yet simultaneously really wish you were there? It’s a huge Christmas Catch 22 really. Do you tackle the huge holiday crowds and stand in long lines or do something else and wish you were in Orlando? It’s hard on the psyche when the decision is made not to travel to the House of Mouse.

Music plays such a big part in Disney vacations, that sometimes when you hear a familiar tune, you are magically transported back in time to your “home.” Christmas at Disney World is incredibly crowded, but it’s also decorated to the hilt with miles of twinkling lights and garland, plus all those trees! To mentally enjoy a Mickey Mouse holiday, you simply need to listen to some of the music they play in the theme parks. Mickey won’t be saying “See ya real soon!” but you will appreciate the high quality Disney holiday music production factor.

I can’t seem to locate many theme park area music songs for sale – I’ve looked.

Did you know you can hear this music for free? Simply press play on the YouTube videos we’ve collected all in one place, kind of like a Christmas present just for you. Throw in some fun facts and trivia from Disney by the Numb3rs.com, and you have yourself an afternoon of musical entertainment.

10 Ways to Save Money on Disney World Food

Christmas at Walt Disney World

It takes 150 tractor-trailer truckloads of decorations to holiday-up all 24 resorts, four theme parks, Downtown Disney and other locations. A 70 ton crane is used to position the theme park Christmas trees into place each year.

1,500 decorated Christmas trees are placed thought the entire WDW property. 5,500 lights are hung on every icon Christmas tree in each park or resort for the holidays, and 98 percent of this lighting is LED. In case you are doing the math, that’s over 8.5 million lights decorating the WDW property for Christmas.

A total of 15 miles of garland is strung, 1,314 wreaths are hung, and 300,000 yards of ribbon and bows drape over Christmas trees across the property.

Christmas at Hollywood Studios

There are well over 10 miles of twinkling rope lights in the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

There are 5 million lights, and if they were strung end-to-end, the lights would span over 426 miles.

90% of the Osborne figurines were part of the original display in Little Rock. This includes the 70 foot tree, Mickey Train, globe, two 30 foot carousels and the Flying Santa and Reindeer.

I understand this video contains the same music they play at Hollywood Studios, and if per chance that is wrong and they only play it in Paris, well, it’s still amazingly beautiful music.

It takes 60 people a total of three weeks to install all the 200,000 LED Dream Lights, which made their debut in 2007, on Cinderella Castle. The lights are hung in place by 32,000 square feet of fish netting, which has been dyed to match the castle’s colors. It takes 15 miles of cable to hang all the lights and netting.

105 different circuits are used to make the lights come to life, aided by 74 LED spot lights that wash the castle in different colors and 500 strobes which create the sparkling lighting effect

Where Can You Find Disney World’s Main Street Area Music?

where can I find Disney World Main Street music

Music plays a huge part in my Disney vacations. I can just hear a certain song and suddenly feel seven years old again, like I am walking through the Magic Kingdom with my family way back in ’77. Living in this amazing age of technology, you can relive those Disney feelings when you get home just by simply listening to music.

Where can you find the Main Street, U.S.A., area music loops?

We haven’t located a place to purchase the actual CDs, and these songs are not available on iTunes.

So we did a little searching and found videos on YouTube, plus several bonus videos for those cold or rainy days where you  want to stay inside and relive those old memories. These videos are really just brief visual images to go with the recordings. We’ll give you some info. about Main Street too, for those that like a little knowledge to accompany their tunes.

Disney Main Street

Disney World’s Main Street features stylistic influences from New England and Missouri. This is most noticeable in the “four corners” area in the middle of Main Street where each of the four corner buildings represents a different architectural style. Whereas Disneyland has an Opera House, WDW’s Main Street sports Exposition Hall.

Here is the Main Street, U.S.A, music loop, over an hour’s worth of songs you’ll instantly recognize.

WDW Main Street USA Area Music Loop

Disney Main Street parade

Main Street’s decor is early 20th century small-town America inspired by Walt Disney’s childhood.  City Hall contains the Guest Relations lobby for information and assistance. You can actually get your hair cut in a barber shop. (Use this link: Should You Get a Haircut at Walt Disney World? For $20, with Pixie Dust and Stickers, Yes!) The Emporium carries a massive variety of Disney merchandise such as plush toys, collectible pins, clothes, jewelry and hats. Tony’s Town Square and the Plaza Restaurant are table service restaurants for a nice sit-down meal, while Casey’s Corner, located at the end of Main, sells traditional American ball park items like hot dogs and french fries.

Just beyond the end of Main Street, separating this from every other main street in the United States, is Cinderella Castle.

The Main Street music has changed some through the years, so here is a link to the “original” Main Street loop.

The Original Main Street, USA Area Loop: 1971 – 1992

Disney Transportation on Main Street

Standing at only 189 feet tall, WDW’s Main Street benefits “forced perspective.” Forced perspective is a simple technique that uses optical illusions to make objects appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than they actually are. The second stories of all the buildings along Main are shorter than the lower story, and the third stories are even shorter than the second. You will notice the same technique used on Cinderella Castle.

Main Street is like the opening act for the Magic Kingdom. As you pass under the train station/opening curtain, you then view the opening credits on the upper stories of the main street buildings.

Main Street Disney windows

The windows have business names on them, such as “Seven Summits Expeditions, Frank G. Wells President”, with each of the names connected to important Disney individuals. The windows/credits are ordered as they would be for a movie.

Before you walk onto Main Street, U.S.A., you will pass through the bag check and the entrance, with this music loop playing in the background.

So you woke up early enough to make rope drop? Well, then you heard these tunes. Listening, I can almost see Mickey and his pals waving from the train station.

Magic Kingdom Welcome Melody

While the next video has no direct connection to Main Street per se, this video is the 1971 grand opening television special of Walt Disney World, which was broadcast on the Wonderful World of Disney show. Julie Andrews hosts this celebration with celebrity appearances by Glen Campbell, Bob Hope, Buddy Hackett and Jonathan Winters. This footage is a true Disney treasure, mostly because the Disney music is completely reminiscent of the 1970s. Highlights of the musical arrangements include Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah and It’s A Small World.
