Disney Parks Picture Discs (vinyl record review)

If you’re a Disney fan like me, you know that Disneyland Records has released a number of soundtracks to their attractions over the years.  Carrying on that tradition, three picture discs are now available from the Disney Music Emporium, the official headquarters of Walt Disney Records.

Previously only available at Disneyland Resort and D23, The Haunted Mansion, It’s a Small World and Pirates of the Caribbean picture discs are now available at Disney Music Emporium.  For the first time on vinyl, these picture discs feature the artwork from the each of their original attraction poster.

All three records are fantastic nostalgic souvenirs, and their vinyl pressings bring out a lot of the detail missing in previous CD releases. Highlights of note: It’s A Small World contains a megamix for those of you that need to get the tune stuck in your head a little longer, Pirates of the Caribbean has the complete Disneyland ride from start to finish on side one, and Haunted Mansion has four creepy source tracks, including a really creepy music box version of “Grim Grinning Ghosts.”
