  • [Question] Disneyland music?

    I am just wondering here, but why is most Disneyland music of the classical genre? (Most of it is orchestrated) I really like this kind of music, and I think since Disneyland uses it so much, it has gotten me into it. Does anyone know why Disney uses this type of music over others?

    I think they use this type of music since they want to convey a family mood and such. Makes perfect sense to me!
    Disneyland - Since 1995
    Walt Disney World - 2010
    Tokyo Disneyland - 2015
    Hong Kong Disneyland - 2015
    Disneyland Paris - ????

      I agree with that. Plus it's very "classic" music and it fits perfectly. It's music that all ages can enjoy.

        I've never heard any classical in Disneyland, but I've heard plenty of orchestral music! There is a difference, after all. And as for the reason...well, the orchestra is an extremely versatile musical group that's become the standard for scoring films, and since the theme park medium is essentially a three-dimensional cousin of the film medium, it makes sense that they'd share musical traditions.

          I think this just fits in with the idea of Disneyland being like a motion picture- it uses music (and often a classic orchestral score) to set the mood and to affect emotion.

            Classical music and orchestral music are not always the same thing.

              Look at the difference between the main entrance of DL and DCA.
              DL is orchestral and DCA is a few songs with words.
              Which gets on your nerves more easily after been heard for the 500th time?
              I like orchestral and it fits.

                Well, you could consider the bits of Ferde Grofe's Grand Canyon Suite that are played in the Grand Canyon diorama within the realm of classical. Otherwise Fantasia is about as classical as Disney ever got. I still think a complete ride based on Fantasia would be awesome.

                  True, that. But other than that, I can't think of any classical music in the parks.

                    They use Holst in Condor Flats.

                      A lot of music is scored with an orchestra because it's mostly classy and timeless. It provides grand sound and it never seems to be dated, no matter what time period it's suppose to represent or what time period it was made. It's also depends on the way it's arranged too. Star Wars and Indiana Jones both don't sound like it came from the 70's, but IASW and a little HM reek with 60's writing.
