  • I Finally Listened to WDW's Wishes and...

    Mind you, I did know that our current show Remember...Dreams Come True's beginning sequence was taken from Walt Disney World's Wishes, but I've never actually listened to Wishes until a couple nights ago. When I first listened to the soundtrack, I immediately thought of Remember, but no Julie Andrews. After listening to the music, I must say, I was a little disappointed in Disneyland. Matt Ouimet spared no expense to make sure that the 50th Anniversary went off without a hitch, made sure that the new attractions/improved attractions were perfect, but how come he couldn't "spare no expense" for a new musical score for DisneyLAND's 50th fireworks show, instead of taking the easy way out and copying Walt Disney World's music? I know Disneyland has gotten in a bad habit of cloning attractions from other Disney theme parks rather than creating new ORIGINAL ones, but have they gotten so bad that they clone the fireworks shows too?

    Erm, there's a reason for the shared music. Wishes was intended to be a be-all fireworks show for every Disney park. One fireworks show that could play at all the Kingdoms around the world.

      Even if the original intent was to have the song in all 5 Magic Kingdoms, "Wishes" the song was debuted elsewhere before it's addition to DL, contributing to the pre-existing sentiment that DL got gipped on it's own birthday party since all the good presents (new attractions) went to everyone else. "Remember" ends up feeling just a little less special, regardless of the intent of including "Wishes."

        As I understand it, the music was entirely re-recorded for "Remember..." although much of it is exactly the same. I don't mind the similarities, I think it's a beautiful song anyway.

        I also like how Matt Ouimet gets blamed for no new musical score for the fireworks.

            Using the same sound track was really because of two reasons:

            1) Wishes was popular. Why try a new soundtrack if you already have a hit?

            2) It costs money to do a new soundtrack. Disney will save a penny every place they can.

            Personally, I think that a different soundtrack should be for every park. The idea that Disney would do one soundtrack for every park is silly. Japanese have different tastes in music than we do. I can imagine that the Europeans also differ in this area. It would have been a little extra touch to make the 50th celebration an even better one to have unique music. Frankly, I think that the Wishes score is rather weak. I don't blame Matt Ouimett, it was probably "mandated" from the Disney Central Committee in Orlando.
