cj843 - I love the Song of the South WDCC set. It is one of my favorite sets.
WALT'S DISNEYLAND DEDICATION SPEECH! - To all who come to this happy place, welcome! Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth can savour the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America, with the hope that it will become a source of joy, and inspiration to all the world.
Really, just play it. I have so many Disneyland collectibles that have barely gone up in value, despite their pristine condition, rarity and antiquity (50 years maximum antiquity not being quite what the word implies).
If your great grandchilden go to sell it on ebay3000, they will realize a profit of $60. Big freaking deal. Listen to the darn thing.
Ugh, for myself, I am so annoyed that I did not buy the set when I had the chance. What seemed an inordinate expense at the time seems like such a lost opportunity now.
P.S. Going to DL on Saturday and Sunday so it will be perfect for the 7.5 hour drive down!
you didn't really wait 9 hours to open it did you?

I imported all of the music onto my iTunes and added it all in my iPod. I enjoy it now whenever I want. If I want to listen on my computer - I can. In my room, I can. In my car ... I can. If you're so worried about damaging your CDs why don't you just make back-up copies on all of them. CD burning -- modern technology. It works wonders.
As for the record... I would listen to it if you know how to properly handle records and use a record player. If you have no idea, then don't touch that record- I haven't because I grew up on cassettes and CDs. The thought using a turn table scares me.
I would recommend just enjoying it. Take care of it of course, but enjoy it. Something that costs $125 that has so much usage potential should not be left idle on a shelf. And as innerspaceman said, I wouldn't expect value to skyrocket for a while...
Just open it and pop those CDs in and turn it up for cryin' out loud!
