Music Mondays: DISNEYLAND Records Release #9: "Walt Disney Takes You To DISNEYLAND"


The ninth release from DISNEYLAND Records finally returned to the park, which had already become an institution. Guests were clamoring for souvenirs to take home and, more importantly, people around the world were dreaming of going there and looked for anything having to do with the park. This record was released to satisfy both groups.

Guests looking for music played in the park would have to wait a bit longer, however. The album featured suites of music from each of the five lands in existence at the time, but the music was more "inspired by" the lands rather than being the actual music played in the park. Most people probably didn't notice this, however. The album became one of the biggest recordings tied to the park and has been re-released twice in the last ten years.
