EPCOT Center Sheet Music Part 1 - Spaceship Earth, Magic Journeys and Horizons

Some people are talented and have skills. They use these talents to to play or even create beautiful music. Disney has a long history of music and some of the most popular songs of all time have come from the company's productions. EPCOT Center has a special place in the hearts of many Disney fans, partially due to the songs from many of its long lost attractions. I am a simple Disney blogger which means I have no real skills, but I'm guessing a few of you do. Enjoy this EPCOT Center sheet music!

Horizons sheet music
[Edit: Check out the music incorrectly credited to the Sherman brothers. Looks like the publisher didn't do their research!]

Magic Journeys sheet music

 Tomorrow's Child (from Spaceship Earth) sheet music

I'll post more at some point. If you upload yourself playing these to YouTube let me know and I'll link your video in my next post!

Musical Connection Between 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids' and 'Captain EO'

My girlfriend and I were bored one night and wanted to watch a movie on Netflix, so we decided to watch Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (FYI, this film doesn't hold up over time). While watching the movie, I noticed a musical connection between HISTK and Disney's Captain EO.

I was able to grab audio from both HISTK and Captain EO for all of you to hear and compare for yourselves. The video below is only audio of me comparing both musical pieces from each film.

A Visit to The Walt Disney Family Museum

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I spent the day exploring the incredible Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco California. Overall it's a must visit for any serious Disney fan. The museum is the most comprehensive and tasteful presentation of Walt Disney ever offered to the public and one could easily spend days soaking it all in. The exhibits are presented chronologically by decade, starting with Walt's birth in 1901, up to his death in 1966. Along the way there are hundreds of artifacts from Walt's personal life and professional career, including actual cells used for the classic Disney animated features, and a massive model of the idealized version of Disneyland.

For your enjoyment, I uploaded this video and over 100 photos of the museum on Flickr.

In this edition of Thrift Store Finds, I share with you a couple of interesting items. However, instead of writing about them, I thought it would be more enjoyable to show them to you in video form.
