This week, the Mouse Lounge celebrates a birthday and takes a trip around World Showcase!
First up, a Mouse Lounge Special Feature: The BBCs Russell Davis looks at how the archives have treated to the two faces of Walt Disney. Uncle Walt, who brought laughter and pleasure to millions, and… the rather tough businessman and social engineer. Enjoy the first of a five part series, Double Disney.
Next, from the Disney Archives, we dust off an old Capital Records album , DBX-3365 from 1954, as Disney Characters from countless films and shorts come to celebrate at Mickey Mouse’s Birthday Party.
Then, from Vault Disney: We travel to Epcot Center, circa 1982, as Danny Kaye introduces us to the wonders of World Showcase.
Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West. Enjoy a musical trip around World Showcase featuring the talented artists and music groups who perform each day, ending a Mouse Lounge mix of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.
We close the show with a pair of musical soundtracks inspired by World Showcase. First, is the Laserphonic Fantasy. This show made its debut on the World Showcase Lagoon in June 1984 and as the name implies featured lasers including the first use of non-continuous lines in a laser animation and the first use of laser graphics on a water-droplet screen. Most of the soundtrack can be found on Don Dorsey's album "Busted".
Lastly, culling from le crème de la crème of French Romantic and Contemporary classical music, Impressions de France ranks as among the best soundtracks to be found anywhere in Epcot.
