    I know this is really obscure, but perhaps a Disney-phile can help: When I visited Walt Disney World in 1986, I walked through something called the "Rainbow Corridor: in the ImageWorks exhibit of Journey to the Imagination. There was some ambient electronic music playing there, which for some reason has stuck in my mind and which I can hear some 17 years later. Is that tunnel still there, is that music still playing and, most importantly, is there any media available - record/CD or video, where this music is available commercially? Thanks for any help!

    Do you remember which particular park in DW you were in? Also, have you tried looking up their website for a map of the park?

    The corridor is gone as that area has been refurbished. There is a site dedicated to Disney music at www.magicmusic.net

    Yeah it was Epcot. I haven't been there in years but Journey to Imagination is gone. I love the Figment character. I thought it was so cool. I was really pissed when I heard they removed it.

    We bought the Epcot CD for the baby and it is ADDICTING as hell! LOL! You get those tunes in your head and need to hear them again to get them out, but they burrow deeper into your mind- [​IMG]

    Some of you might be surprised to learn that there is quite a following of Disney music. They obsess over finding every little bit of music from the Disney parks around the world. Kinda like Deadheads who collect every live show.
    It's funny to think that the guy blasting Metallica next to you at the stoplight might also have a disc with the full ride-through of It's A Small World[​IMG]

    Found this site the other day when, for some unexplainable reason, I started thinking about the old "If You Had Wings" attraction. Damn, talk about a song burrowing it's way into your head!

    Anyway, it's a pretty cool site dedicated to lost Disney attractions, and there is an Epcot section. I figured this crowd might enjoy it.
