We've had the CD set since before our trip to the World last March. We played the CD's prior to our trip and it seems like we are doing that again. . .
What is fun is to guess the attraction while the music is playing. We sat down for dinner with disc two starting. The husband thought it was a song from Little Mermaid, but the boy corrected him--it was music from the Finding Nemo attraction at EPCOT.
The music was playing when the boy woke up over the week-end and he would listen ever so still. I could imagine him picturing the attraction itself and even taking himself on a ride-through in his mind.
We were listening to the Soarin' theme music. There was discussion about the smell of oranges and pine trees. Then the boy asked if that (the music) was the part when you soared over the aircraft carrier. What a memory!

I was reading the other day about dreading the post Disney World visit funk--that inevitable feeling of let down when your magical vacation comes to an end. Yep, the feeling is real. Brides can have that same feeling when the big day is over and new mothers can get postpartum depression. There are a couple of ways we combat that feeling in our house--and one is by listening to the music of the parks to bring up the fond memories of when we were there. Looking at pictures is another way. But the number one way to beat the post vacations blues--plan your next trip! We typically have the next trip on the calendar either before or during our current stay. It makes it easier to leave if you know when you're coming back. In the meantime, put on some music and hear the welcome song to the Magic Kingdom!
